In fact, they contain larger amounts of several important nutrients than the common foods often associated with these nutrients

These include:

  • Vitamin C, which fights a host of illnesses including colds and flu;
  • Vitamin A, which acts as a shield against eye disease, skin disease, heart ailments, diarrhea, and many other diseases;
  • Calcium, which builds strong bones and teeth and helps prevent osteoporosis;
  • Potassium, which is essential for the functioning of the brain and nerves;
  • Proteins, the basic building blocks of all our body cells.

Numerous non-governmental organizations in particular - Trees for Life, Church World Service and Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization - advocate Moringa as “natural nutrition for the tropics.” Leaves can be eaten fresh, cooked, or stored as dried powder for many months without refrigeration, and without loss of nutritional value. Moringa is especially promising as a food source in the tropics because the tree is in full leaf at the end of the dry season when other foods are typically scarce.

Analyses of the leaf composition have revealed them to have significant quantities of vitamins A, B and C, calcium, iron and protein.

According to Optima of Africa, Ltd., a group that has been working with the tree in Tanzania, "25 grams daily of Moringa Leaf Powder will give a child" the following recommended daily allowances:

Protein 42%,

Calcium 125%,

Magnesium 61%,

Potassium 41%,

Iron 71%,

Vitamin A272%,

Vitamin C 22%.

These numbers are particularly astounding; considering this nutrition is available when other food sources may be scarce. Scientific research confirms that these humble leaves are a powerhouse of nutritional value.

Gram for gram, Moringa green leaves contain:

  • 7 times the vitamin C in oranges
  • 4 times the calcium in milk
  • 4 times the vitamin A in carrots
  • 3 times the potassium in bananas
  • 3 times the iron in spinach
  • 2 times the protein in milk

Nutritional analysis has shown that Moringa leaves are extremely nutritious especially when dried. With the exception of vitamin C there is an increase in all other vitamin content in the dried leaves compared to fresh green leaves.

  • 17 times more Calcium in dry Moringa leaves than in milk
  • 10 times more Vitamin A in dry Moringa leaves than in carrots
  • 15 times more Potassium in dry Moringa leaves than in bananas
  • 25 times more iron in dry Moringa leaves than in spinach
  • 9 times the protein in dry Moringa leaves than in milk

Another important point is that Moringa leaves contain all of the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. It is very rare for a vegetable to contain all of these amino acids. And Moringa contains these amino acids in a good proportion, so that they are very useful to our bodies. These leaves could be a great benefit to people who do not get protein from meat.

Experts tell us that 30% of children in sub-Saharan Africa are protein deficient. Moringa could be an extremely valuable food source.

It is noteworthy that Moringa contains Argenine and Histidine, which are especially important for infants who are unable to make enough protein for their growth requirements.
