Moringa the Miracle Tree

Published on 7/11/2013

Also scientifically called " moringa oleifera"

This amazing tree has several names: Here it’s called "miracle tree"; there it is "royal tree'', elsewhere, “the tree of consciousness” or “Never die” in several regions in Africa. In India where the tree originated, it's called the "tree of life".

Location: Africa and Asia

Useful parts: Leaves, flowers, seed and bark.

The green leaves cut from the branches of the tree must be dried in a cool area, covered away from sunlight, to preserve all the nutrients. After a few days of drying under shadow, the leaves are ground to powder, which is used for cooking. In many regions in West Africa it is added into the meals. A teaspoon three times a day is well tolerated by the body.

The boiled leaves that can replace any green vegetable are good source of vitamins, protein and fiber. Traditionally, African mothers do not dump this boiled water. Quite the contrary they keep it as a bath water for their kids. Many women in the villages told me that it is a protection for the skin and a repulsive for insects, so that kids are prevented from insect bites though there is no perceptible scent remaining on the babies' skin. Therefore, this is a claim I can't scientifically testify.

Fresh or dry flowers are also boiled to make a very healthy tea. Since this tree is highly appreciated, I planted two specimens in my garden.

They grew so fast and attract a bunch of beautiful birds to my delight.

For more information about the amazing health benefits from this miracle tree , please watch the video below.

Warmest regards
