This is the first I'm hearing of Moringa. There seem to be lots of health benefits. I'm going to have to check this out.

Adele Yuboco said...

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Moringa (or Malunggay) also found here in the Philippines? I just had to ask since the opening statement said that it's from the Himalayan Mountains. :)

Fernando Lachica said...

To Adele Yuboco.....yes, Moringa is Malunggay. The most widely cultivated species is Moringa oleifera, a multipurpose tree native to the foothills of the Himalayas in northwestern India.

I have heard about the great benefits of Moringa. I have also seen some beauty products using this as an ingredient. I also heard that it helps you produce more milk when you're nursing.

Russ R. said...

I was gonna ask you if Moringa and Malunggay are the same :)
I've heard of its benefits. I remember my grandmother asking her helpers to make tinola with lots of malunggay each time a female member of the family gives birth - said it's good for moms and their babies. I guess that's the calcium part ( benefit ) that you mentioned.

I like malunggay as an ingredient for soups. It is just a bonus that it has a lot of medicinal properties as well.

No wonder why my parents kept insisting that I should eat this when I was younger. Dad was right! There are a lot of vitamins and benefits we can get from this. How I wished I learned to eat these before. It's quite hard to eat them now eh. :(
