Moringa Miracle Green Superfood
The light-colored, earthy-tasting powder is derived from the leaves and seed pods of Moringa Oleifera, a tree that’s native to India but also grows in Asia, Africa, and South America, and is sometimes referred to as the drumstick tree, miracle tree, horseradish tree, or ben oil tree. The plant contains a number of important compounds, including beta-carotene, quercetin, and a wide range of vitamins and minerals.
Many of the healthy foods you eat have a single standout nutrient. Think carrots and vitamin A, citrus and vitamin C, nuts and vitamin E. Moringa leaves stick out as a superfood because one cup of chopped leaves is considered a good source of iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and riboflavin and has notable amounts of potassium, vitamin A, vitamin E, and magnesium. In fact, the leaves are more concentrated in vitamin C than oranges. That means Moringa can contribute to everything from better vision and immunity to bone health and skin radiance.
