(NaturalNews) Few plants offer such a complete range of benefits as Moringa oleifera with its outstanding nutritional, medicinal and detoxifying properties. Rich in all essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals along with formidable antioxidants, moringa is an exceptional health enhancing and famine eradicating superfood. According to Miracle Trees:

"Moringa is one of the world's most nutritious crops. Ounce for ounce, the leaves of moringa have more beta-carotene than carrots, more protein than peas, more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk, more potassium than bananas, and more iron than spinach. . . . The multiple uses of moringa have attracted the attention of researchers, development workers, and farmers."

Native to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains in northern India and cultivated throughout the world, moringa typically enjoys a warm, somewhat tropical environment, such as those found in Africa, South America and certain parts of Asia. Since the tree is extremely nutrient dense and grows rapidly, it's an ideal solution for curbing malnutrition and soothing a variety of health complaints.

Miracle superfood with a host of uses

Remarkably, every part of the moringa tree can be used, including the bark, flowers, leaves and roots. Interestingly, dirty and turbid water can be purified with the seeds. By adding 5 tablespoons of moringa seed powder per 10 liters of contaminated water, 90-99 percent of harmful pathogens are removed.

And research has shown that an extract from the leaves alleviates HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, diabetes and hormonal imbalances. An antioxidant rich oil can be pressed from the seeds, which is useful in the treatment of skin diseases as well as stomach, bladder and prostate disorders. When ground into a powder, the seeds are used for sexually transmitted diseases, arthritis, neuralgia, tumors and intestinal cleansing.

Similarly, the root also calms many health issues. As stated in the Nigerian publication The Guardian, a tea made from the root treats the following conditions:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Infertility
  • Epilepsy
  • Inflammation
  • Gout
  • Rheumatism
  • Colds and flu
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Colic
  • Colitis

Moreover, the root and bark are frequently boiled together, creating an infusion that is useful for earaches and dental caries. Moringa flowers are either pressed for juice or brewed as a tea. Traditionally, extractions from the flowers are helpful for healing the common cold and urinary tract infections as well as reducing edema.

DIY moringa

Moringa can be grown either from seed or stem cutting and thrives in dry, sandy soil. The tree grows easily outside in U.S. hardiness zones 9, 10 and 11. For those living in cooler climates, moringa can be planted in a large pot and brought indoors when the weather turns chilly. For full planting and care instructions, visit here.
