12 Things You Didn't Know About Moringa Oleifera

When people talk about Moringa oleifera, they talk about the super-dense nutrients. You’ll hear that Moringa leaf powder is an outstanding source of vitamins and minerals, and if you’re talking to a real expert, you might learn about its impressive antioxidant and Omega-3 profile.

Moringa is a multivitamin in a leaf, no doubt. But few know that Moringa has an ancient and impressive history as a botanical medicine. Natural medicine practitioners around the world have used Moringa for hundreds - if not thousands - of years to treat and prevent a wide range of conditions.

Today, clinical trials are confirming the historical uses. When we wrote our book on Moringa, we scoured the scientific literature to find the most significant and reliable findings.

Here are 12 highlights:

  1. Compounds in Moringa leaves protect cognitive function. They help to preserve memory and other aspects of brain performance.
