Beginning in June 2010, The “Nigerian Tribune” ran a series of articles on growing Moringa oleifera for its financial, nutritional and health benefits. The series included testimonials of Moringa oleifera’s ability to eliminate malnutrition, cure chronic fatigue syndrome and boost the mood and energy level of a miniature Schnauzer and her owner. Moringa oleifera grows in tropical and sub-tropical parts of the world. In the U.S., it grows in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Moringa leaves, flowers, fruit, seeds, bark, roots and gum are used for food, medicine or animal feed. Moringa Oleifera Nutritional Benefits It is difficult to avoid superlatives when describing Moringa oleifera’s value as a food source. It is rich in protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamin A and vitamin C. Researchers from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana examined the nutritional value of Moringa leaves and the leaves from several varieties of sweet potato. The researchers found that Moringa leaves had 2009 mg of calcium per 100 g — about 3.5 oz. by weight. That’s more calcium than 6 cups of milk. Moringa is also rich in iron. The researchers found that 100 g of Moringa leaves have 28 mg of iron — more than 7 oz. of chicken liver or 9 oz. of beef tenderloin.
