It’s not a household name – yet – but we’re not the only ones who have discovered the power of Moringa. See what others are saying about Moringa, the powerful ingredient in Moringatein.

 1. “Scientifically speaking, Moringa sounds like magic. It can rebuild weak bones, enrich anemic blood and enable a malnourished mother to nurse her starving baby. Ounce for ounce, it has the calcium of four glasses of milk, the Vitamin C of seven oranges and the potassium of three bananas.”

– “A Common Tree With Rare Power”. Mark Fritz. Los Angeles Times. (April 4, 2000)

2. “Gram for gram, dried Moringa leaves have 25 x iron in spinach; 17 x calcium in milk; 15 x potassium in bananas; 10 x vitamin A in carrots; 9 x protein in yogurt.”

3. “The leaves of the Moringa Oleifera tree, native to the Himalayan mountains in northwestern India, are extremely nutrient-dense. They contain 3 times more iron than spinach and are loaded with tons of other vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and potassium, as well as powerful antioxidants.”

4. “Moringa’s one of these trees that is a multi-purpose plant that fulfills such a high percentage of basic needs that when people get used to using it, they really can’t see what it’s like to live without it.”

– Dr. Will McClatchey, Ethnobotanist, University of Hawaii
“Moringa: The Miracle Tree”; Discovery Channel, September 6, 2012

5. “Green leafy vegetables and fruits supply much needed essential micro-nutrients like beta-carotene [vitamin A], vitamin C, folic acid, and also calcium and potassium. Moringa leaves in particular are a rich, inexpensive source of micro-nutrients.”

– Dr. C. Gopalan, President, Nutrition Foundation of India. July 9, 2002

6. “Among the leafy vegetables, one stands out as particularly good, the horseradish [Moringa] tree. The leaves are one of the best plant foods that can be found.”

– Dr. Frank W. Martin, in Survival and Subsistence in the Tropics. May 1978

7. “A major advantage to Moringa is the fact that it is a local resource. This contrasts with many of the ongoing programs designed to fight malnutrition which depend on imported products and outside support… Moringa is a very simple and readily available solution to the problem of malnutrition.”

– Lowell J. Fuglie, in The Miracle Tree – Moringa oleifera: Natural Nutrition for the Tropics. May 2002

8. “Moringa shows great promise as a tool to help overcome some of the most severe problems in the developing world—malnutrition, deforestation, impure water and poverty. The tree does best in the dry regions where these problems are worst.”

– Andrew Young, former Atlanta Mayor and United Nations Ambassador, in Hope during drought. June 2000

9. “Among the wide range of Green Leafy Vegetables, Moringa is the richest source of Beta-Carotene [vitamin A], apart from providing other important micronutrients.”

– Dr. Kamala Krishnaswamy, former Director, Indian Council
of Medical Research, Hyderabad, India. August 14, 2002

10. “ Although few people have ever heard of it today, Moringa could soon become one of the world’s most valuable plants, at least in humanitarian terms.”

– Noel Vietmeyer, US National Academy of Sciences, Washington D.C., in “Moringa oleifera.” The Australian New Crop Newsletter. Issue 9, January 1998
