While moringa oleifera the “miracle tree” remains relatively unknown in the West, it has developed a reputation
in its native lands for its unusually high nutritional value.
Miracle tree, which is also known as ‘drumstick tree’, and ‘horseradish tree’ has tiny, rounded leaves which
are abundant in a huge number of nutrients:
Calcium, Protein, Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, Potassium.
This explains the long tradition of its medicinal use, as well as dietary use, of about 4,000 years and more.
Health researchers even started to give it nicknames such as “The Miracle Tree” and “The Elixir of Long Life”
due to its miraculous healing abilities.
