Moringa Oleifera

Moringa trees may be the most giving plant on the face of our planet. There is so much science that we will let you do your own research here. We were Moringa Central for Arizona and had been researching, raising, and selling these amazing trees and products until 2016.

Here are just a few quotes from research articles.

Native to North Africa and the Himalayan mountains in northwestern India, the plant has traditionally been used to do everything from curing illnesses to boosting sexual desire and to treat male sexual disorders in India, with no known side effects for over a thousand years, but is much more.

The plant, which can be taken as a tea, or in tablet, powder or oil format, is said to help the body recover from over 300 diseases or issues. And this is backed by studies from Johns Hopkins University and the US government.

A recent study in the International Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences found that it even enhanced sexual behaviour in rats. It's also known to contain chemical compounds called saponins which have been shown in other studies to support libido and levels of the sex hormone testosterone.

"If you want to improve your health while giving your sex life a boost, try a cup of moringa tea with your breakfast. Moringa, or 'miracle tree', is being hailed as a superfood that not only increases energy levels and boosts the immune system, but can also be an aphrodisiac.

"Gram for gram, moringa has seven times the vitamin C found in oranges, four times the calcium of milk, four times the vitamin A of carrots, three times the potassium of bananas and three times the iron of spinach. Its tiny leaves are also high in protein, with twice the amount found in yoghurt, and the plant is 42% protein and can be used as a stand alone diet almost indefinitely. Some people have lost a pound a day for several months by using a supermix of Moringa." See chart.

"Moringa oleifera has an impressive range of medicinal uses with high nutritional value and medicinal benefits. Different parts of this plant contain a profile of important minerals, and are a good source of protein, vitamins, beta-carotene, amino acids and various phenolics. The Moringa plant provides a rich and rare combination of zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid and kaempferol.

Moringa can act as cardiac and circulatory stimulants, possess antitumor, antipyretic, antiepileptic, antiinflammatory, antiulcer, antispasmodic, diuretic, antihypertensive, cholesterol lowering, antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, antibacterial and antifungal activities, and are being employed for the treatment of different ailments in the indigenous system of medicine."

We here at the self reliant resiliency community of TTEV have been growing, researching, and selling Moringa trees, products, and giving consults and workshops for almost 5 years through various sources and formats including the University of Sustainability. It is a complete game changer and you can come see our large food forests of this amazing tree.
