In the video, NutriGrower Jr was harvesting for giveaway :) There are plenty to share, so give us a shout out if you are kin for the next round.
Do you know? Moringa Oleifera, also known as horseradish tree, ben tree, or drumstick tree, is a small tree from India, Pakistan, and Nepal that has been used for generations in Eastern countries to treat and prevent diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, anemia, arthritis, liver diseases, and respiratory, skin, and digestive disorders.
Moringa has become popular as a natural leaf powder supplement, although the pods, roots, bark, flowers, seeds, and fruits are also edible. Hmm.. talking about ultimate usefulness :)
It is also used as a traditional remedy for many ailments, and here are 9 scientifically backed by science, health benefits of consuming Moringa leaves:
1. It is nutrient-packed
2. It fights free radicals
3. It fights inflammation
4. It helps reduce some diabetes symptoms
5. It protects the cardiovascular system
6. It supports brain health
7. It protects the liver
8. It contains antimicrobial and antibacterial properties
9. It enhances wound healing
We have tried consuming Moringa leaves by blending them in smoothies, stir fry with eggs, stir fry with other mixed veg (or meat if you like), and incorporated them in soups. Unlike the powder version, the leaves are rather sweat, even our dogs loves them. Perhaps, Moringa salad would be a nice addition to our cuisine :)
Have any good recipes to share? We would love to hear from you.
Till next harvest, stay tuned!
