What is Moringa?
In a nutshell, moringa is a superfood. It is loaded with beneficial nutrients. Also known as moringa oleifera, it comes from a tree that is native to tropical and subtropical regions.
Basically all parts of the moringa tree are useful as food and medicine. But the most nutrient rich and healing comes from the moringa leaves.
I’ve been using moringa daily for a few of weeks now. The first thing I noticed was an increase in energy. As a mom of little ones, this is a huge bonus.
