- stronger bones and teeth
- nervous system development
- heart health
- muscle development and use
- blood pressure regulation
The seedpods, flowers, seeds, oil, roots, leaves, and dried leaf powder can be used in different ways for consumption.
Moringa can grow several feet in a short timeframe and this is due mostly to the effects of Zeatin, a plant hormones that induces cell division, growth, and delay aging of cells. Zeatin is also linked to anti-aging or the slowing down of aging processes in the human body therefore being through the consumption of the Moringa a more natural way to support skin health by regenerating new skin cells.
