What is Moringa?

Moringa is considered a miracle plant since every part of it has specific use. It's kind of insane how beneficial this plant is - root, seed, flower, pods...all of it. It is used for medicine and nutrition, and even to purify water. 

What makes it a Haitian treasure?

The moringa flowers are often used to treat colds and to improve circulation and immunity. In Haiti, we make teas and soup with moringa, as well as put it in Mayi Moulen (Cornmeal/Polenta).
