Moringa powder is a nutrient-dense food extract that is made from the leaves of the moringa tree (Moringa oleifera), a flowering tree native to tropical and sub-tropical regions of Africa and Asia, where it is known as the ‘tree of life’, the ‘horseradish tree’, the ‘drumstick tree’, or ‘mother’s best friend’.
The flowers, gum, bark, roots and seeds of the moringa have all been harnessed in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, and the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians used it to support their skin or purify their drinking water. And, thanks to its extraordinarily high nutritional content, today moringa is often farmed in developing countries, where it is an increasingly important source of food and nutrition.
The Moringa powder used in this moringa smoothie recipe below contains protein, vitamins, (vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C), and minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium).
