One small common malungay tree is taking on the entire world’s illnesses…and winning!
The secret all lies within how cells in your body die. Did you know there are only TWO ways for a cell in your body to die?

Apoptosis - The Good Way
The process where a damaged cell signals for a white blood cell to come and destroy it thoroughly.
The Result: No leftover parts of the cell to damage other cells.

Necrosis - The Bad Way
The destructive process cells go through unassisted: Electrons fall off into other cells wrecking havoc and causing everything we know as aging, including non-genetic diseases.
They become free radicals.
The Result: The body ages, develops Cancer, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Tumors, High Blood Pressure, etc…

So theoretically, if you could stop Necrosis from happening, you would stop aging completely and live healthy forever!
The only defenses we currently have against Necrosis are Antioxidants. Antioxidants are natural compounds shown to block or ’soak up’ the extra cell parts (free radicals) left over from Necrosis.

The Result: Slower aging, less illness.
There are thousands of compounds in nature that are considered to be Antioxidants, but they are always found in very small concentrations. Within the last six years, the most concentrated source of antioxidants has finally been discovered.

The most powerful antioxidant on earth is Dried Moringa Leaves. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds work best when combined with other antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. Nature allowed for a better efficacy when combined, a synergy of the compounds being much more effective than a single compound. Moringa contains the following antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds or compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics.

Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B (Choline), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B6, Alanine, Alpha-Carotene, Arginine, Beta-Carotene, Beta-sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic Acid, Campesterol, Carotenoids, Chlorophyll, Chromium, Delta-5-Avenasterol, Delta-7-Avenasterol, Glutathione, Histidine, Indole Acetic Acid, Indoleacetonitrile, Kaempferal, Leucine, Lutein, Methionine, Myristic-Acid, Palmitic-Acid, Prolamine, Proline, Quercetin, Rutin, Selenium, Threonine, Tryptophan, Xanthins, Xanthophyll, Zeatin, Zeaxanthin, Zinc.

Anti-inflammatory compounds:
Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Arginine, Beta-sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic Acid, Calcium, Chlorophyll, Copper, Cystine, Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9, Fiber, Glutathione, Histidine, Indole Acetic Acid, Indoleacetonitrile, Isoleucine, Kaempferal, Leucine, Magnesium, Oleic-Acid, Phenylalanine, Potassium, Quercetin, Rutin, Selenium, Stigmasterol, Sulfur, Tryptophan, Tyrosine, Zeatin, Zinc.
There are over 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds all naturally occurring in the Moringa plant. This is why people prefer Moringa as the best natural source of anti-oxidants.

Moringa, scientific name Moringa oleifera of the family Moringaceae, is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree with a variety of potential uses. It is dubbed as “miracle vegetable” by the Department of Agriculture because of its wonders.

Malunggay in Tagalog, it is known for its rich vitamin content and it is often used by breastfeeding mom to increase their milk. It is a good source for calcium and phosphorus. Nutritional analysis has shown that malunggay leaves contain larger amounts of several important nutrients than the common foods often associated with these nutrients.

Recent studies done in India disclosed that malunggay is a potential source of anti-cancer compounds. It contains phytochemicals that may help foil cancer cells. It is also beneficial for women with problems in reproductive organ like epithelial ovarian cancer. malunggay has anti-oxidant that helps cure arthritis, kidney diseases and heart complication.

According to Mark Fritz of Los Angeles Times, gram for gram of fresh kalunggay leaves provide seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the calcium of milk, four times the vitamin A of carrots, three times the potassium of bananas, and two times the protein of yogurt.
Interest is growing in the use of malunggay in addressing malnutrition in developing areas of the world. Also because of its high vitamin and mineral content, inAfricait has become popular as a locally produced nutritional supplement for individuals infected with the HIV/AIDS virus.

It has been used successfully to combat malnutrition among infants and women of childbearing age.

On September 14, 2007, Philippine Senator Loren Legarda campaigned for the popularization of malunggay, after a recent scientific report that it boosts male potency. Research at the Bureau of Plant Industry found that a steady consumption of its fruit increases sperm count: “helps to raise sperm count and mobility, which both translate to increased opportunity for the sperm to fertilize an egg .” It is also rich in high density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol. 

Moringa oleifera?
Moringa oleifera Lam is the most widely cultivated species of the monogeneric family Moringaceae (order Brassicales), that includes 13 species of trees and shrubs distributed in sub-Himalayan ranges of India, Sri Lanka, North Eastern and South Western Africa, Madagascar and Arabia.

Moringa oleifera is considered one of the world’s most useful trees, as almost every part of the tree can be used for food, or has some other beneficial property.

The Moringa oleifera plants is absolutely power-packed with nutrients and minerals, including Calcium, Chloride, Chromium, Copper, Flourine, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Molybdenum, Phosphorus, Potassium, Osidum, Selenium, Sulfur and Zinc, Vitamins A, B, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Folic Acid, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin E.

Do Moringa leaves have any negative side effects?
Moringa leaves have not been found to be toxic. Very extensive health and safety studies conducted at the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Centre in Ghana determined that Moringa leaf powder has no toxic elements. Absolutely no adverse side effects from even the most concentrated Moringa diet were observed.

Is it safe to feed pregnant women and infants with Moringa leaf powder?
In 1997-98, Alternative Action for African Development (AGADA) and Church World Service tested the ability of Moringa leaf powder to prevent or cure malnutrition in pregnant or breast-feeding women and their children in southwesternSenegal. Malnutrition was a major problem in this area,with more than 600 malnourished infants treated every year. During the test, doctors, nurses, and midwives were trained in preparing and using Moringa leaf powder for treating malnutrition. Village women were also trained in the preparation and use of Moringa leaf powder in foods.
This test found the following effects to be common among subjects taking Moringa leaf powder:
* Children maintained or increased their weight and improved overall health.
* Pregnant women recovered from anemia and had babies with higher birth weights.
