If you are living in a subtropical or tropical climate and you are not growing moringa yet, now is the time to get your hands on some seeds and start growing this miracle tree.

Moringa is super easy to grown and doesn’t need much attention. And what’s even better, it takes less than a year to go from seed to a big tree. After just a few months you will be able to enjoy it’s nutrient-dense, yummy leaves.

Later on in its life, you could use its beans, seeds, and flowers too. In fact, the whole tree is edible and often used as a staple food or medicinal plant in India, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

Moringa Nutritional benefits


Moringa is often referred to as a superfood and for some good reason. This nutrient-dense food houses a wide range of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to boost health and happiness.

Furthermore, moringa contains high levels of fiber and protein, including all 9 essential amino acids our body needs to function properly.

Moringa has shown to boost energy, improve digestion, stabilize blood sugar, reduce inflammation, and boost the immune system.

CLEAN GREEN MORINGA DETOX SMOOTHIE


Ever since we discovered fresh moringa leaves it has been a staple at our home. We use it in smoothies, soups, stews, dressings, etc.

Its flavor can best be compared with spinach. The only thing I maybe don’t like about it is its fibrous stems… so make sure to use the fresh leaves only and not the stem.
