The Miracle Tree
The moringa oleifera plant is native to the Indian subcontinent, where it has long been appreciated for its various qualities. It has a range of nicknames, from the Drumstick Tree (due to the shape of its pod seeds) to the Horseradish Tree (due to the taste of its roots). As one of the most nutrient-dense plants on Earth, it has also been recognized as ‘the miracle tree’.
As moringa leaf extract powder grows in popularity in the United States, more and more studies are closely examining its potential benefits.
