Now more than ever there is an increased focus on health and wellbeing and the role of nature in particular. Many people are revisiting traditional preventative and remedial means to better health, especially those related to improving our body’s immune system.

It is no wonder Moringa is labelled as a miracle, as it contains approximately 539 compounds and can aid the prevention of 300 diseases, according to Ayurveda.

Although the commonly used parts of Moringa are the leaves and seeds, all parts of the plant are beneficial, including its pods, roots and bark. Moringa is used in producing oil, to cook with and for medicinal and beauty advantages.
