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).

Nutritional Benefits of Moringa 

Moringa is classified as a superfood, it is nutrient-dense and has beneficial antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Moringa has more than 90 nutrients and over 45 compounds with antioxidant properties, a significant dose of vitamins A, C and E, as well potassium, calcium and protein. 

Moringa leaves are also known to:

I loved my free sample of the Moringa oil. It's not too greasy and it mixes well with the natural oils on my face.
