Moringa

Moringa oleifera is a tree native to North India but is now widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas of Asia, Africa, and South America. It is known under a variety of names, such as drumstick tree, horse radish tree, or ben oil tree. It was widely used in traditional herbal medicine as it is rich in vitamins A, C, B6, B2, as well as in protein and precious minerals like iron and magnesium. Moringa is rich in powerful antioxidants such as kaempferol, caffeoylquinic acid, zeatin, quercetin, rutin, chlorogenic acid, and beta-sitosterol. Moringa is also used to help maintain a normal glucose level.
