Mirny Moringa Oleifera is a powerful herb that has gained increased attention for its ability to alleviate many of the most common and serious health problems. There appears to be many benefits, and its use has the potential to greatly impact the health of the general public.
Protecting overall health and wellness this winter season from common colds, viruses, and other illnesses can be accomplished with Moringa Oleifera. Moringa Oleifera leaves, which come from the drumstick tree indigenous to Northwest India, contain many important vitamins and nutrients that the body must obtain daily. These include:
Amino acids: Arginine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, etc.
Vitamins A, Vitamins B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B6, C, D, E and K
Minerals: Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Phosphorus, Iodine, Sulphur, and Selenium
Calories, carbohydrates, fibers, fat
Phytochemicals: Phenolic antioxidants, e.g. flavonoids
Moringa Oleifera is much more than your average multivitamin. In fact, some of the ingredients in the leaves are more plentiful than those in some fruits and vegetables. Ounce for ounce, the leaves actually contain seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, four times more calcium than milk, four times more Vitamin A in carrots, three times Vitamin E than spinach, and three times more potassium in bananas, as well as a host of other beneficial nutrients (http://www.themoringa.com/nutritional-values).
These specific ingredients of the tree have been scientifically purported to have health benefits, which include, but not limited to:
1. Increased physical energy and stamina
2. Faster recovery during workouts – from Moringa oleifera’s complete amino profile
3. Healthy blood sugar maintenance
4. Weight management
5. Boosts metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
6. Supports a healthy nervous system

Ancient Ayurveda tradition and culture in northern India have revealed Moringa Oleifera has been used in these medicinal capacities both as a treatment and for preventative use for various illnesses. These cultures know it as the “Miracle Tree” because of the health benefits. One possible medical use is as an antibiotic, for which there is overwhelming classical scientific and anecdotal evidence available (http://www.moringamix.com/files/John_Hopkins.pdf).
Some compounds in Moringa Oleifera have been shown scientifically to have possible benefits for cancer prevention in mice models. Human randomized, controlled clinical trials are still needed to confirm these claim
