Every single part of the moringa plant has medicinal properties [1]. Moreover, moringa leaves provide “…7 times more vitamin C than oranges, 10 times more vitamin A than carrots, 17 times more calcium than milk, 9 times more protein than yoghurt, 15 times more potassium than bananas and 25 times more iron than spinach.” [2]. Clearly moringa is super amongst superfoods! There is so much scientific research on moringa’s positive impact on health that this article summarises different experiments and groups them according to health concern. But it must be emphasised that all the benefits compiled in this article don’t even scratch the surface of moringa’s scientifically detected nourishing abilities!
