I'm no scientist or researcher, but I do love to learn about a plant that can help us with our nutrition.

Read as many articles as you can and then tell yourself that the Moringa is not the Miracle Tree.
Most of the information on this website has been from a book Miracle Tree written by Monica Marcu a clinical pharmacologist, who has been "in love with trees," as she puts it , ever since she can remeber.

Okay!... Now your probably saying "how do I get some of this magic?". Well...Moringa is sold in the frozen food sections of specialty grocery stores, dry leaves are sold online in a capsule form and in the last year there is pioneer company who has put all the properties of Moringa into a liquid form.
is the company that peaked my interest on Moringa and after a couple of cans my energy levels where up. This could be from the increase of iron I was getting. For years I would donate blood to the Red Cross, sadly after having children my iron levels where too low to donate. Three weeks after taking Moringa on a daily bases, Red Cross was liking me again. Below are the sites that made me realize that there is hope for your nutrition in today's society. Check them out and see what you can relate too.
