Moringa oleifera is the full name of a herbal remedy that the nation is swearing by as the ultimate healer of most ailments.
Available in powder, tea and oil form, the leaves, the bark, pods, gum, flowers, seeds and even the roots; every part of the moringa tree can be used and each part has differing health benefits.
Though its genus originates in Africa and parts of Asia, this particular strain is most prominent at the foothills of the Himalayas in India where it has been used for centuries to treat various medical problems.
From asthma to arthritis, cramp and pain to infections and inflammation, different parts of the moringa tree are best at curing different ailments. The combinations are endless but more and more people are swearing by this humble plant, calling it the “miracle tree.”
In a society that is increasingly turning to herbal remedies it looks as if moringa could be one that works for all.
