You may have heard the buzz of a new green superfood with endless health benefits: moringa. But do you know what it is?

Moringa has been used for thousands of years in eastern countries, but its health benefits are now becoming better known in America.

Moringa has been used for thousands of years in eastern countries, but its health benefits are now becoming better known in America. Traditionally, the entire tree has been used to support health, however, most Western nutritional uses center around the leaves, and with good reason. They pack a lot of punch! The vibrant green, oval-shaped leaves are loaded with vitamins, minerals and all 18 essential amino acids–the building blocks of protein.

• Beta-carotene
• Magnesium
• Iron
• Fiber
• B12
• Vitamin E
