Got Moringa?

Last year Jared and I started reading up and eventually planted a moringa tree in our yard. Within months of being planted into the ground the tree began to grow quickly. We add moringa to everything smoothies, juices, stir-fry and as garnish to just about anything. It is definitely a great boost and has a whole lot of nutritional benefits.  

Now if you can't find fresh moringa leaves in your area don't worry there are moringa powders, salves, lotion and I've even seen a moringa hair conditioner online.

Jared also created a Moringa Facebook Page to help spread the knowledge and love to our friends and family. You can check it out here ---->>
