Moringa, the tree of eternal youth

Tree of life, miraculous tree, plant of eternal youth...
Have you ever heard of him?

His name may not tell you much. However, this tropical tree native to the Himalayas has been used for millennia for its medicinal virtues. Extremely rich in nutrients. I tell you why it may be so good for you!

Today I'm talking about this superfood whose popularity is gradually spreading in Europe.

What is moringa?

Moringa ( Moringa oleifera ) is a tree in the moringaceae family, originally growing in northern India and Pakistan , and now found throughout tropical and subtropical regions. Resistant to drought, its growth is extremely fast and can reach up to 12 meters in height.

Moringa flowers are a species called "melliferous": that is, a species that allows the production of very high quality honey.

Moringa in the popular tradition

All parts of the moringa can be eaten (with some precautions for the root). Therefore, the plant is used in multiple ways.

In the Indian tradition, moringa is an integral part of the diet.

For several years now, moringa has been recognized by the scientific community as a nutritional treasure. Its great wealth of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins, beta-carotene, amino acids) makes it a formidable ally in the fight against malnutrition. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends regular consumption of moringa (especially in the diet of children) to combat dietary deficiencies.

What is moringa made of?

The richness of moringa is due to its very complete composition. Moringa leaves are the most interesting part: they are particularly rich in vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9, A, C, E), minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, selenium ) and essential amino acids (isoleucine, lysine, leucine). Moringa leaves fall into the "superfood" category: they are far more nutrient-dense than most vegetables (2 times richer in vitamin A than carrots, 4 times richer in potassium than bananas, 9 times more rich in iron than spinach).

The roots, on the other hand, are a very good source of antioxidants thanks to their high polyphenol content.

Finally, the seeds and fruits meet the daily requirement of vitamin C.

What place does moringa occupy in Ayurveda?

Moringa is an essential plant in Ayurvedic medicine. With a spicy and bitter taste, it warms and has a pungent post-digestive characteristic. It balances all the doshas, ​​especially Vata and Kapha due to its heating characteristics. Pitta may consume it but in moderation, especially if it is in excess.

As a reminder, Vata, Kapha and Pitta are the three Ayurvedic constitutions (= doshas). These doshas are defined by a specific relationship with the 5 elements: water, air, space, earth and fire. Each dosha symbolizes the combination of two elements.

The Vata dosha symbolizes the union between air and space. The Kapha dosha is the combination of water and earth. The Pitta dosha, on the other hand, brings together fire and water.

The doshas represent energies or moods that influence individuals. The constitution of individuals varies according to the preeminence of one of the doshas over the others. The search for balance between the doshas is at the center of Ayurveda. Allows harmony between body and mind. It is in this harmony that the health of individuals in Ayurveda medicine is based. It also allows you to feel a long-lasting well-being. For more information, do not hesitate to consult our article on: what is ayurveda? (
