Virtually every part of the moringa tree is of nutritional or commercial value and, because it grows so quickly, it is a sustainable crop.

While the fresh moringa leaf is typically prepared as a salad herb or a vegetable, dried moringa leaf yields its nutrients and antioxidant phytochemicals to teas and other beverages, as well as cooked foods and skincare formulas. In fact, this herb reputedly offers 17 times more calcium than milk, 25 times more iron than spinach, 7 times more vitamin C than oranges and much more.
