Moringa Seeds

Moringa is a fast growing, evergreen, deciduous tree, loaded with long, fragile branches, which are covered with small, oval-shaped dark green leaves. Native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas, this is the most widely cultivated and 1 of 13 species of trees belonging to the plant family Moringaceae.

The tree is often referred to as "The Miracle Tree" and "Mothers Best Friend" due to its nutritional benefits. Considered as one of the most nutritious and useful plants ever discovered as it contains a unique combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Almost every part of the tree, like leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root, can be used for mankind and has beneficial medicinal properties. Moringa can cure about 300 diseases. Some of them are anemia, arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes, diarrhea, epilepsy, stomach pain, heart problems, high blood pressure, kidney stones, thyroid disorders, and bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections, etc. The oil extracted from moringa seeds is used in foods, perfume, and hair care products, and as a machine lubricant. Also, the seed cake remaining after oil extraction is used as a fertilizer and also to purify water.
