Moringa Oleifera Health Benefits

Dry Leaf Powder Moringa Oleifera

Moringa Oleifera in its dry leaf form is far more potent than fresh leaves. It really is the most extraordinary of plants, very fast growing, in some of the most challenging of conditions and with almost all the nutrients that could be found in any food source. It has the power to rid the world of malnourishment and has been recognised the world over, even by Bill Gates, and more recently The Body Shop has started mass producing Moringa products.

Nature's Best Kept Secret’

Moringa Harvest Leaf Powder is produced from the finest, freshest Moringa Oleifera from Nicaragua, Central America. From field to factory takes less than 10 minutes. Here the leaf matter is washed, drained and oven dried at 40° C to retain all of the amazing properties. The greatest care is taken to guarantee the highest quality product.
