It has powerful antioxidant properties and has been used as a natural medicine in the treatment of various health issues.
According to Jillian Levy, CHHC:
“Although this plant was initially discovered for its beneficial properties thousands of years ago, only recently has Maringa (sometimes called the Ben oil tree) become known as one of the most impressive herbal supplements to hit the holistic health market.
In fact, in 2008 the National Institute of Health called Moringa (Moringa oleifera) the “plant of the year,” acknowledging that “perhaps like no other single species, this plant has the potential to help reverse multiple major environmental problems and provide for many unmet human needs.”
Its leaves and fruits are full of minerals and vitamins. A cup of Moringa pods provides:

“Clearly, Moringa benefits are highly touted and deservedly so. To date, over 1,300 studies, articles, and reports have focused on Moringa benefits and this plant’s healing abilities that are important in parts of the world that are especially susceptible to disease outbreak and nutritional deficiencies. Research shows that just about every part of the Moringa plant can be utilized in some way, whether it’s to make a potent antioxidant tea or produce an oily substance that lubricates and nourishes the skin. “
