Moringa is native to the Himalayan regions of India. The Tree is now grown across tropical regions in Africa, Asia, islands in the Pacific and the Caribbean, and South America. The most commonly known variety of Moringa is Moringa Oleifera. It is a tree with long, delicate-looking branches, which have small, oval-shaped dark green leaves. Those leaves have lot of healthy nutrients. For more about Moringa, please use our MoringaBot

Everyone should try to eat the leaves raw to get the most benefit from them. Here are some suggestions of eating fresh Moringa leaves:
