Moringa Oleifera has been used for centuries for disease-prevention and as therapeutic medicine in ancient civilizations. It has been known by many names, popular ones of which are "tree of life," and "miracle tree," for its extraordinary nutritional value. Almost every part of the tree is edible and can be used for human and animal consumption. Moringa's use can be dated back 10,000 years in ancient India where it was also used as a sexual virility drug for treating erectile dysfunction in men and for prolonging sexual activity in women. Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers all over the world in underdeveloped and underprivileged nations.

"My family had heard about Moringa Oleifera when my mom got sick. People had mentioned many herbal and botanical products among which Moringa stood out with its extraordinary properties. I did my own extensive research on it, including watching videos on YouTube and got convinced of its natural super multivitamin/multimineral status. I was also impressed by its use in famished African countries to combat malnutrition. Little kids on the verge of imminent death due to starvation were brought back to health with Moringa being added to their diets. It is said to be the most nutritious plant found on earth. So not only did I start taking it myself and felt good at mind and body, but decided to start a business around it. I felt an overall improved sense of well-being. It did give me more energy, increased my metabolism, gave me more sound sleep, regulated my mood and bowel movements, etc. It has many long term effects as well that I will experience over time. It has different effects on different people. Some people say it improves their skin and hair, gives them more energy, makes them focus and concentrate better, makes them lose weight, increases quantity and quality of breast milk in lactating women (same goes for cows that are fed Moringaas part of their feed), and many more physical and mental health benefits. You will experience your own health benefits when you try it out.
I strongly believe in Moringa's power. Every single part of the tree can be used for something and nothing goes to waste. From seed cakes for water purification, its drumsticks and leaves for food and tea, its ground up leaves for cosmetic facial masks, to its multitude of other uses as human and animal food and dietary supplement. Just the naturally occurring abundance of nutrient quality and content alone is enough to convince me in consuming Moringa for myself, my family and loved ones."
