Moringa Through 4000 Years of History
source - moringa farms
The Moringa plant is native to Northern India, where it was first described around 2000 B.C. as a medicinal herb. The oral tradition of Ayurvedic medicine in India declared that Moringa prevents 300 diseases.
Ancient Egyptians treasured Moringa oil as protection for their skin from the ravages of desert weather.
Later, the Greeks found many healthful uses for Moringa and introduced it to the Romans.
Over the centuries, the Moringa plant has been carried to all the tropical parts of the world, where it readily takes root. It is commonly used for food, for medicinal purposes, as a wind-break in fields, and many other purposes.
It spread eastward form India to the lower parts of China, Southeast Asia and the Philippines. From India it also spread westward to Egypt, the Horn of Africa, around the Mediterranean, and finally to West Indies in America.
On the island of Jamaica in 1817, a petition concerning Moringa oil was presented to the Jamaican House of Assembly. It described the oil as being useful for salads and culinary purposes, and being equal to the best Florence oil as an illuminant--giving clear light without smoke.
The leaves and pods were likewise used in local recipes. In America, Moringa can be found in markets which cater to immigrants from India, Sri Lanka, China and the Philippines. Usually this is in the form of frozen or canned foodstuffs. The saltwater brine in which it is stored is poured off, and the water in which it is cooked is also discarded. As a result, much of the amazing health benefits of Moringa are lost in this process. A break-through was made recently when Moringa leaves were harvested fresh in India and ground into pure powder, which was then stored in air-tight containers and shipped to America. Moringa Farms is the first to import this natural-strength powder to the U.S. and it is now available in convenient capsules or the original powder form.
FROM MORINGA PARTNERS The Forest Agency of Japan has recently published a study on Moringa and Global Warming.
We at Moringa Partners - www.moringa.groupsite.com are very interested in discussing some of the ideas and have shared elements of the research on our radio show - www.blogtalkradio.com/muriellas-corner - you can listen to the show on the link above. Looking forward to hearing from you
The following stats are interesting - Carbon dioxide emission and absorption
* 1 person emits 320kg of CO2/yr; it takes 23 Japanese Cedar trees takes 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2; it takes 2 Moringa trees 2 years to absorb this amount
* 1 family car emits 2300kg of CO2/yr; it takes 160 Japanese Cedar trees 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2; it takes 10 Moringa trees 2 years etc
Moringa is a tropical tree, fast growing, resistant to drought and an important source of food for people and animals in many countries. There are 13 species known, of which Moringa oleifera is particularly easy to reproduce and its growth is very fast.
DRINK MORINGA TEA
For the last five years we have been selling and promoting the use of moringa. We have sold moringa products and helped many people start their own farms in countries like Mexico, Thailand, Paraguay and Argentina, that they may help the people there. We like to think of ourselves as a community service organization as well as a small business. Many of our customers have reported improvements in such diverse conditions as osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, indigestion, mental clarity and fatigue. Moringa is among the power greens like spirulina, chlorella and wheat grass. What makes it unique is its adaptabilty to harsh climates and its being one of the fastest growing biomasses on the planet, capable of growing 20 feet in a year. This is why relief organizations are using it to combat malnutrition in third world countries. They demonstrate to the local people how to use it and improve their lives. It has a mild taste and can be used in a variety of ways either fresh or powdered. The pods are considered a delicacy in India. The seeds make a wonderful oil similar to olive oil and is a great skin moisturizer. Seed extract is also used to purify water. The leaf powder makes a delicious green tea."
