The healthy power is in the leaves.
So far, the plant is by far the most nutritious crop. Numerous valuable nutrients and vital substances can be found especially in the leaves or in the leaf powder in an optimally coordinated form.
The high number of amino acids should be emphasized, because 18 out of 20 known essential amino acids could be detected in the leaves. These cannot be produced independently by the human organism, but are an important part of the oxygen transport in the body, the ability to concentrate and many important brain functions.
Moringa contains all the important nutrients, vitamins and trace elements. It is considered a superfood in the United States and Europe. It contains the herbal hormone Zeatin, which enables the body to properly absorb and process vital substances. This makes it a valuable means of building up malnutrition.
The leaves are outstanding as a source of vitamins A, B and C. They contain many minerals, particularly calcium, iron and phosphorus. They are also rich in protein, and contain many essential amino acids, i.e. amino acids that are required for good health, which the body cannot produce itself. Fresh leaves have 4 times the calcium content of milk and 4 times the vitamin A content of carrots - and these become concentrated in Moringa leaf powder.
The most important ingredients and their function at a glance:
Harvest the leaves, dry within 3 days, if possible in the shade. In strong sunlight the loose their vitamin A. Pound, sieve to remove the stems and store in airtight jars in the dark. If possible, check the moisture Content with a hygrometer, so that you know exactly how long you can store the leaf powder.
This leaf powder can be added to rice, grains, sauces, in fact anything at all. For children under five, suffering from malnutrition and other health problems, a teaspoonful should be added to their food three times a day. For children over 5 add more (Dr. Hans Martin Hirt, Natural medicine in the tropics, Anamed. order number 109).
