AFRICAN MORINGA: Moringa is the earth’s greatest source of nutrition, with more vitamins, minerals and
phyto-nutrients than any other gift from nature and has great use medicinally as both preventative and treatment.
“There is a Savior, a Savior that brings hope for a new life for people of Africa and the African Diaspora. From Johannesburg to Nairobi from West Africa to the West Indies, from New York to Los Angeles, from Chicago to Houston, Africa’s people are looking for the Savior. That Savior is Moringa oleifera, the Miracle Tree of Life
Moringa oleifera is called ‘Nebedaye‘, which means ‘never die’, in many African languages; it promises relief from the devastiang diseases and malfunctions that are so rampant in the African and African American communities…”
“The oil from the Moringa Oleifera nut was used by the ancient Egyptians. This extremely fast growing woody species (Moringa oleifera, Moringaceae) could open up a new category of crops: “vegetable trees.” It also produces masses of very small leaflets that are boiled and eaten like spinach. Being so small, the leaflets sun dry in just a few hours and can then be put in a jar and stored for the off-season, a time when dietary minerals and vitamins are often scarce. Moringa seeds could be employed to make water safer for drinking and cooking.”
Use the tea bags or, if you have a coffeemaker, just substitute moringa powder for coffee. Use one teaspoon of moringa for every cup of water. Spoon it in the coffee filter just like you would coffee and after it’s brewed, you have a nutritious, stimulating & very delicious GREEN TEA beverage! Add lemon peel and some raw honey for sweetener (if desired).
