Moringa is your best friend if you want to have an extra iron in your body (very beneficial for women). With a very high content of vitamins and minerals, Moringa is nowadays considered a superfood due its countless benefits for health.
Native to India, it comes from a very common tree in Kerala (India) although later and in fact, nowadays, it is very common in all the tropical and subtropical regions of Latin America and Africa. We use it nowadays thanks to the discovery for the West of Doctors without Borders in 1974 but it came to us in 1992 when it was the only food for the survival of some doctors lost in Malawi and who could count on Moringa, perceiving at first hand its high benefits for their bodies and survival.
It is so powerful and so important to health that its tree is known as the “tree of life” or the “pharmacy tree”, a name that says it all and those who use it say that there is nothing better to treat diseases naturally.
