The horseradish tree (Moringa Oleifera) is not very well known in Poland, although its healing effect has been used in some regions of the world for a long time. Recently, Moringa has appeared in our store - that's why we decided to devote some attention to it and convince even the greatest skeptics to this product. Ladies and Gentlemen: Here's everything you need to know about the beneficial properties of Moringa.
What is Moringa?
Moringa is a tree from India that has become the source of many products, used not only in the kitchen, but also in cosmetics, medicine and industry. In our country it is a plant practically unknown, while in the foothills of the Himalayas it has been a basic component of the daily diet for thousands of years. Virtually all parts of the Moringa tree are used: the leaves are made into a salad, the roots (like our native horseradish) are used as a spice, and the fruit is eaten like beans. Moringa juice mixed with water has disinfecting properties and is even used to disinfect wounds.
Moringa - what vitamins will you find in this product?
Human nutrition specialists argue that it is worth taking an interest in this plant. Why? It turns out that it contains many times more iron, protein, potassium, protein and vitamin A than spinach, eggs, bananas, yoghurt or carrots considered the most rich in these ingredients. Its consumption is recommended not only in many diseases (malnutrition, avitaminosis, difficulties with concentration, anemia, headaches, hypertension), but also on a daily basis. Moringa perfectly complements the daily diet with the necessary nutrients.
How to use moringa?
The easiest way is to reach for powdered moringa leaves. This form is very convenient and can be used as an addition to various dishes: cottage cheese, yoghurt, soups or a cleansing cocktail. It can also be eaten regardless of the meal - you only need 1 or 2 teaspoons a day before a meal to fully benefit from the beneficial effects of this plant.
