Come find out about the healthful benefits of the Moringa tree
By Gorka Meneses
Starting at 9:30am on Thursday, March 7, the San Miguel de Allende-based cooperative called Kúrate will be opening its doors and introduce to the community this exceptional plant that has been called the miracle tree for its highly valued health and nutritional qualities. Moringa Oleifera originated in the region of Tibet and for thousands of years man has used everything from the leaves, flowers and root as well as the bean-like fruit as a highly nutritious food source. The bean itself is used to make valuable oil and can also be dried and crushed to purify water. A small portion of Moringa leaves contains four times the amount of protein found in eggs, four times more vitamin A than in carrots, seven times the vitamin C of an orange, four times as much calcium as a glass of milk and three times more potassium than banana. Also an anti-inflammatory medicinal food, Moringa has a significantly higher amount of protein than soy.
