Have you heard of this amazing SuperFood? Many people believe Moringa is the answer to world hunger, some call it the Miracle Tree. We are blessed to have this tree in our back yard and we harvest leaves from it just about every day. They say it grows best in Plant Hardiness Zone 9 or 10, however during our travels I met a woman, Clare Plott, who grows Moringa trees in Missouri (zone 6).
The Moringa tree is also called the drumstick tree, horseradish tree or ben oil tree. It grows mainly in tropical and subtropical areas and originated at the base of the Himalayan Mountains.

All parts of the tree are edible and it’s easy to grow. Even if you aren't lucky enough to have a tree in your backyard, Moringa can now be enjoyed by everyone since it is now available commercially in a dry, powdered form.
Even infants, pregnant and nursing women can consume it and are encouraged to do so since it is such a powerhouse of nutrients.
If you take more than your body wants you may have a detox reaction, which is not harmful, just irritating. It just means you might have to spend some extra time in the bathroom for a couple days or you might have a headache, rapid heart rate, nausea or feel achy like you have the flu. This is all caused from your body eliminating toxins too quickly.
If you are just starting on a healthy diet, start with just 1/8 teaspoon (0.625 ml) and you should not have any problem.
Start with 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) daily if you are have been eating a nutrient-dense diet for years with at least 1/2 lb. of greens in your daily diet.
Increase the amount you consume on a weekly basis as your body adjusts and detoxes, gradually building up to as much as 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) if you like.
