Moringa (moringa oleifera) has been dubbed the miracle tree. Other names include drumstick tree, horseradish tree, or Ben oil tree. It is native to North India, but it is very common also in Africa, Asia and South America. The miraculous label stems from the fact that all parts of the plant (leaves, stems, roots etc) are nutritious, so it is commonly used as food and medicine, especially in poor countries. The Romans, Eygptians and Greeks, as well as Aryuvedic therapies have been using moringa for medicinal purposes.
Moringa is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, as well as minerals and antioxidants. It is commonly used to treat inflammation and other body ailments. For skincare, due to its hydrating and detox properties, moringa neutralises harmful pollutants, helps prevent wrinkles and slows down aging. The high protein content of drumstick aids in protecting dermal cells from damage caused by heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium.
