What is moringa oleifera?

The origins of the tree of a thousand benefits

When tradition meets organic quality

Moringa oleifera is a native plant native to northern India and Pakistan. It is currently present throughout the tropical zone of the planet. This traditional remedy has been recognized for its multiple virtues for centuries in India to treat skin diseases as well as the respiratory and digestive system. Its dietary benefits make it an important product in the preparation of meals. In the coastal and rural areas of Madagascar, many families are used to planting one or more moringa oleifera trees to meet their daily consumption.

The benefits of moringa oleifera

The miracle tree which contains vitamins, proteins, minerals, iron, calcium and amino acids.

All the plant of the moringa oleifera is edible: from the leaves to the roots while passing by the seeds or the flowers. Moringa Wave certifies it to you: it is one of the best products from a nutritional point of view. “A 2015 American scientific study shows that the leaves are the most complete part of moringa in antioxidants” explains nutritionist and physician Hafid Halhol.

According to the study “Culture, genetics, ethnopharmacology, phytochemistry and pharmacology of moringa oleifera leaves: an overview”_, moringa oleifera leaves contain :

  • Vitamin A: between 11,300 and 23,000 international units. Vitamin A plays a key role in the maintenance of many physiological processes. It reduces fatigue, increases muscle mass, protects against oxidative stress and helps the immune system to function properly.
  • Provitamin A: between 6.6 and 6.8 mg/100 g of beta-carotene, more than carrots, pumpkin and apricots. Beta-carotene is more concentrated in dried leaves, with amounts ranging from 17.6 to 39.6 mg/100 g.
  • Vitamin C: about 200 mg/100 g, more than orange and spirulina. Vitamin C plays an essential role in metabolism. It is involved in the synthesis of many compounds such as tyrosine, vitamin B9 (or folic acid), tryptophan and the hydroxylation of glycine, lysine, proline, catecholamine and carnitine. Vitamin C also facilitates the transformation of cholesterol into bile acids. It helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
  • Antioxidants: they protect the body against the harmful effects of free radicals, pollutants and toxins.
  • Vitamin E (especially α-tocopherol): about 9.0 mg/100 g, like nuts. It acts mainly as a fat-soluble antioxidant.
  • Polyphenols: the quantities are higher than those of fruits and vegetables.
  • Experimental evidence has shown the ability of moringa oleifera leaves to protect the body and cells from oxidative DNA damage associated with cancer and degenerative diseases.

This tree with a thousand virtues is the only certified plant with such properties. The oil obtained from the seeds of organic moringa oleifera is also rich in antioxidants, vitamins and oleic acid (72% minimum). It has moisturizing, nourishing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Its use is suitable for natural skin and hair care.
