Moringa oleifera tree is a small tree that is native to India but that grows in many parts of the world. Moringa is beneficial as a food because of its ability to grow in a variety of climates, especially subtropical climates. The leaves and pods are the most nutrient-rich parts of the plant, loaded with essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. The seeds themselves are loaded with vitamin C and can be eaten fresh or roasted like nuts. In traditional medicine, the leaves, seeds, flowers, bark, sap, and roots of the Moringa oleifera are valued for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
