Moringa - Mother's Best Friend
Goes the saying of the Konso people who inhabit the lowlands of southern Ethiopia, expressing the ancientlink that unites them to the Moringa oleifera tree.
Moringa oleifera has all essential amino acids, beneficial fats and omega oils. Moringa has rich amounts of calcium, iron and many other vital minerals, as well as a wide variety and copious amounts of vitamins, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances but very few calories attached to it.

Imagine a tree in your backyard that will meet most of your nutritional needs, purify your water and take care of you medicinally?
The Moringa oleifera tree empowers YOU to combat climate change and desertification. Moringa oleifera cures illnesses, purify water, it's efficient against malnutrition and can feed the hungry.
WARNING: Beware of Moringa oleifera tree bad cultivation or manufacturing practices when you buy products.
How are the Moringa oleifera tree products manufactured? Where do you buy moringa products?
As more and more people become aware of the Moringa oleifera tree and its benefits, the flow of Moringa products onto the market is skyrocketing. The market place has plenty low quality Moringa manufactures attempting to capitalize on unsuspecting and uneducated consumers.
A large amount of the Moringa oleifera products on the market are made from cheap Moringa with lack of product quality control. While these products may be affordable, they may not be as the label says. Moringa oleifera nutrients could easily be lost in the manufacturing process and delivery. Remember the point of buying Moringa oleifera tree products is the incredible amount of nutrients it contains, not just to buy green powerless powder compressed into capsules with a nice name on it. Therefor beware from whom and where you buy Moringa products.
To do list before you buy moringa products
- Make sure that you buy products containing only 100% Moringa oleifera and no fillers or additives.
- Verify that the Moringa product comes in a vegetarian or vegan capsule.
- Make sure you do your due diligence on the manufacturer and where they source their Moringa oleifera products from.
- Make sure the Moringa oleifera tree supplement that you buy comes from FRESH LEAVES - The longer Moringa leaves sit after being picked, the more nutrients that are lost in the process. The same counts for how long is the Moringa oleifera powder sitting in a warehouse or the Moringa capsules in the shop shelfs. The fresher the Moringa oleifera tree products you buy the better (Moringa powder, capsules, oil...) Loss of up to 50% of vitamins can be reached after six months of storage.
- Identify what process is used to dry the Moringa oleifera leaves. Many farmers, producers of Moringa powder dont care how they dry the Moringa leaves. They use the sun to be quicly over with the process. The sun destroy more ingredients than when the Moringa leaves are dryed in the shadow. See study on effect of dehydration on the nutritive value of Moringa tree leaves Sun dried - VS - Shadow dried - VS - Oven dried
Before you leap in to buying moringa products, ensure the products you buy are of the highest quality, and not mixed with any additives and fillers.
The supplier must be intimately involved in the harvesting, cleaning, and production process to ensure the moringa products you buy, are of a high standard. Moringa Source chooses only those partners that can meet our rigorous quality control standards. We guarantee Moringa of the purest quality and that it is sourced from eco-sustainable farming communities.
Moringa oleifera leaf products should be stored in air-tight containers protected from heat, humidity and light. Moringa trees may like lots of sun but the sunlight is not good for the Moringa oleifera powder, capsules...
If you buy Moringa tea, dont forget that whats inside the bag is very nutritious. After drinking your tea, open up the bag and use the powder in it for a milkshake, salade or any other dish.
If you buy Moringa powder, 6g of powder is a good starting amount to eat per day.
The Moringa oleifera was featured on the popular talk show ABC "The View" as a "Slim Down Super Food" due to its incredible energy boosting, nutrient dense, weight loss and antioxidant properties, without side effects.

Moringa is an important food source because it can be grown cheaply and easily. The Moringa oleifera tree leaf is a nutritionally rich, ecological and economical vegetable available in practically all tropical countries. It is therefore essential to develop the production and consumption of this "green superfood". Processed or fresh, the Moringa oleifera leaf products is not only a new, promising source of income and employment, but also an outstanding, nutritionally rich vegetable for families and markets.
The Moringa oleifera leaf, fresh or processed into dried powder, can be used as an every-day food item in a multitude of ways: in ready-made meals, juices, breads, pasta, fritters, condiments, instant soups, etc. Food made with Moringa products can be used in households, school cafeterias, dispensaries, maternity wards, nutrition rehabilitation centres, as well as in restaurants and supermarkets.
Moringa oleifera tree leaves belong to the family of dark green leafy vegetables, a food group particularly rich in nutrients. In particular, the leaves are a good source of proteins, calcium, iron, ß-carotene (converted to vitamin A in the human body), vitamin C and vitamin E. In addition, Moringa oleifera leaves have a high dry matter content (around 20-25%) compared to most other plant food sources (generally around 10%). This makes it even more beneficial as a fresh vegetable since 100 grams of fresh leaves will bring twice as much nutritive material as 100 grams of most other vegetables.
Eating 100 grams fresh Moringa oleifera tree leaves provides you with as much protein as an egg, as much calcium as a big glass of milk, as much iron as a 200 grams beef steak, as much vitamin A as a carrot and as much vitamin C as an orange.
• 30 to 100% of the daily recommended intake of calcium (30 to 50% for teenagers, 40 to 60% for adults, children and pregnant and breastfeeding women, 80 to 100% for young children below 3 years old)
• 25 to 80% of the daily recommended intake of iron (25% for pregnant women, 40-60% for teenagers and women, 50 to 100% for men and children).
As for vitamins, the recommended daily intake for vitamin A varies from 400 μg retinol equivalents (young children) to 1,000 μg retinol equivalents (breastfeeding women).
Therefore, 100 grams of fresh Moringa oleifera tree leaves could theoretically cover 100% of daily needs, but this is highly variable depending on storage conditions and how they are eaten, as vitamin A degrades over time and when exposed to light or heat. Similarly, 100 grams of fresh Moringa oleifera leaves could cover 100% of the vitamin C requirements, for which the recommended daily intake varies from 60 mg (young children) to 130 mg (breastfeeding women), but this vitamin degrades quickly with time and during cooking.
For optimal nutrient retention, it is advised to consume fresh Moringa tree leaves shortly after harvesting and to cook the leaves for a short time (a few minutes only), or even to eat them raw if they are young and tender
Another way of consuming Moringa leaves is to dry them and reduce them into powder, making it easier to store and use at any time. To ensure the good nutritional and microbiological quality of the leaf powder, its water content has to be lower than 7%, the drying time should be as short as possible and the drying temperature not too high (no more than 50-55°C).
Even if a large amount of the vitamins are lost during drying and storage, the leaf powder still constitutes a very rich nutritional supplement, since it is a concentrate of the Moringa oleifera leaves
Moringa tree leaf powder can be stored for some time before it is consumed. If so, the leaf powder has to be stored in a water- air- and light-proof container to preserve as much vitamins as possible and avoid microbial contamination. In storage, the protein and mineral contents will be preserved for up to six months, whereas a loss of up to 50% of vitamins can be reached after six months of storage.
Once the container is opened, the leaf powder should be consumed quickly (within one week) since its water content will increase and it will be exposed to microbial contamination. For this reason, it is advised to package Moringa oleifera leaf powder in rather small containers.
Fresh Moringa leaves can be eaten raw, if they are very young and tender, but usually they are cooked. Even if cooking the leaves destroys a part of their nutrients, notably vitamins, others become easier to assimilate. For this reason, it is important to consider various ways of cooking the leaves and to understand how to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients. This can be achieved by associating Moringa oleifera tree leaves with other ingredients that enhance the availability of nutrients, by cooking the leaves only for a short time, or by keeping the liquid (water, sauce) in which the Moringa oleifera leaves are cooked. Using Moringa oleifera leaf powder is also a way of preserving nutrients (although some have been lost during drying and storage), as the powder can be added to food after cooking.
Moringa oleifera leaf powder can be used somewhat like dried spirulina.
Calcium - 10g Moringa oleifera leaf powder
• About 30% of the recommended daily intake for children between 1 and 3 years old.
• About 25% of the recommended daily intake for children between 4 and 9 years old as well as adult women.
• About 15% of the recommended daily intake for teenagers and women over 55.
Iron - 10g Moringa oleifera leaf powder
• About 30% of the recommended daily intake for children between 1 and 12 years old.
• About 15% of the daily recommended intake for teenagers.
• About 20% of the daily recommended intake for adults over 55.
• About 12% of the recommended daily intake for adult women.
• About 7% of the recommended daily intake for pregnant women.
Vitamin A - 10g Moringa oleifera leaf powder
• 50 to 100% of the recommended daily intake for all population categories.
Vitamin C - Moringa oleifera leaf powder
A study from Sri Lanka showed that on average, leafy vegetables lose 32% of their vitamin C content when they are boiled for five minutes, and 54% in ten minutes. Steaming is less damaging, with 15% loss in five minutes and 39% loss in ten minutes. Cooking Moringa oleifera tree leaves or Moringa oleifera tree leaf powder the least possible time is thus a good way to preserve the vitamin C content.
Beta-carotene - 10g Moringa oleifera leaf powder
The World Vegetable Centre (AVRDC, Taiwan) showed that the retention of total carotene and beta-carotene of Moringa oleifera tree leaves was enhanced by adding oil to the leaves during pressure cooking (76-99% of retention with oil against 46-63% without).
The bioavailability of Moringa nutrients
The bioavailability of nutrients is the ability they have to be digested and used by the human body. The bioavailability of the iron provided by plants is lower than when provided by meat. A good way to improve the availability of iron to the body is to add vitamin C to the dish. This can be done by using lemon juice, lemon peel or fresh tomatoes.
AVRDC demonstrated that boiling Moringa tree leaves in water enhanced the in vitro iron bioavailability of fresh leaves and leaves dried powder by 3.5 and 3 times, respectively. In addition, boiling the leaves in water enhanced aqueous antioxidant activity. This shows that cooking Moringa tree leaves does not necessarily have a negative impact on nutrient intake. The heat destroys some of the vitamin C, but improves the assimilation of iron. The best option is to vary consumption modes.
Vitamin C and all the B vitamins contained in the Moringa oleifera tree leaf are water-soluble. Other vitamins are soluble in fat: such is the case of vitamin A (ß-carotene) and E (a-tocopherol). When cooking fresh or dried leaves, the cooking water should be kept to benefit from the vitamins B and C, soluble in water. In addition, to render the fat-soluble vitamins A and E available, it is suggested that the leaves be cooked using oil or other sources of fat. Ideally, the Moringa leaves should be quickly boiled in a small quantity of water. Add both Moringa oleifera tree leaves and the cooking water to a sauce containing a source of fat. This way both water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins, only slightly diminished by cooking, are made available.
