Moringa is nothing short of a miracle plant. Drought-resistant and capable of growing quickly in a wide variety of poor soils, much of the plant is edible by both humans and livestock.
The leaves have more betacarotene than carrots, more protein than peas, more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, and as much potassium as bananas. The seeds can be eaten like a peanut, or used to create oil. With all of its valuable properties, moringa is being touted as a means to combat malnutrition and poverty in the developing world.
