Moringa seeds are produced annually in the tropical and sub tropical countries of Asia and Africa. Like the rest of the plant, they are highly valued, as they give us the incredibly nutritious Moringa Tree. The Moringa oleifera tree, also known as the Tree of Life, has a host of nutritive uses for both people and livestock alike. Moringa oleifera seeds have a unique and pleasing appearance. They come with their very own wings to ensure the wind carries them to fertile ground far away from the parent plant. When firmly rooted, they produce a bountiful crop of one of the world's most healthy plants.
Moringa seeds are large and circular-shaped, and grow inside the lengthy pods of the Moringa oleifera tree. The pods can reach well over a foot in length and each pod can provide over a dozen large Moringa seeds. Moringa seeds have two sets of thin flaps extending from the main kernel of the seeds. These flaps serve as wings to carry the seed away from the mother tree, and with the help of the wind, they move across the ground until they find a resting place to germinate.
Unlike the fast-growing leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree, the seed pods do not grow back every few months. Moringa trees produce seed pods on an annual basis, much like other similar species in the plant kingdom. And as is the case with other healing plants, it is always worth the wait for the trees to produce their seed pods.
Moringa trees give off incredible volume of seed pods during their reproduction months. An average-sized tree of fifteen to twenty feet in height can produce hundreds or even thousands of seed pods, yielding countless seeds each and every year.
Uses for Moringa Seeds
Fresh Moringa seeds are usually quite soft and yield with strong pressure. As Moringa seeds dry out, they harden until they resemble a dried bean or pea. If theMoringa seeds are to be used for oil extraction, the seeds are harvested and immediately processed. The fresh, soft seeds are broken into pieces and heated with water, and then they are pressed for oil. Seeds that are cold-pressed can produce up to 40% oil by weight.
If Moringa seeds are not harvested for oil, they are most likely to be used as food or in cultivating further crops. Moringa seeds are a popular table food in many cultures around the world. The seeds can be steamed or boiled, either in the pod or shelled, much like peas or green beans. They can also be seasoned and roasted as a snack food. They are packed with nutrients, making them as popular as Moringa leaves in many household meals and recipes.
Growing Moringa Seeds
The increase in the popularity of the Moringa plant is evident by the number of companies offering Moringa seeds for sale. Before you buy, make sure you live in an environment that will support the germination and growth of this unique plant. If you do not live in a tropical environment, you can still grow the plant indoors with proper care. Moringa seeds will germinate in a room temperature environment, and seeds will quickly mature into healthy plants, as long as they are exposed to plenty of sunlight and not over-watered.
The seeds will germinate best if they are soaked first in water for 12-24 hours. This will allow the seeds to absorb the moisture required for sprouting. Remove the soaked seeds, wrap them in a wet cloth, and store the cloth in a warm, dark place. Ensure the cloth remains damp so the seeds do not dry out. Once the seeds have 'woken up', continue to keep them moist until they have germinated. Check the seeds daily for a week until you see them sprout. When this happens, bury them in ¼" of clean soil and keep the area moist. The seeds will establish themselves in their new homes and grow quickly.
The rule of thumb for growing Moringa oleifera is to keep temperatures above 70°F. However, this is not a strict rule, and you can most likely maintain a healthy Moringa tree even if temperatures dip below 70°F for a period of time during the year.
Harvesting Your Plant
Because it is such a fast grower, you can harvest the Moringa plant of its leaves every two months under healthy conditions and it will grow back without any detriment to the health of the tree. The leaves make a wonderful addition to any salad. One of the many benefits is that it regenerates quickly - second only to bamboo. In fact, a Moringa tree can grow several feet in its first year after germinating from seed, if it is not pruned to an appropriate height for an indoor plant.
Oil makes up over 40% composition of the Moringa seed. This extract is a light, sweet oil, also known as Ben oil or Behen oil. With an oleic acid content of 72%, the oil penetrates deeply into the skin, carrying essential nutrients and helping the skin refresh and rejuvenate itself.
The seed cake which remains after the oil has been extracted has proved to be a very effective flocculent/coagulant for the clarification of turbid water. It helps remove sediment and bacteria, leaving the water clear and clean. Moringa seed cake is introduced into a volume of water, and the water is stirred or agitated for a period of time. The small pieces of cake work to effectively attract particulate matter, including dirt, sediment, algae, and bacteria, which cling to the seed cake particles, sponging them up. The water is then filtered through a fine cloth, leaving it significantly more pure than it was prior to the introduction of the Moringa seed cake - up to 90% cleaner.
Moringa seeds are as important as the live-giving tree itself. Germinate a seed, and it will produce a tree that grows rapidly and continues to shower you with nutrients for years to come. At Moringa Source, theyprovide you with the highest quality seeds, collected from their strongest trees and available in bulk quantities. Their seeds have excellent germination rates and are completely untreated - straight from the tree to you.

Moringa Oleifera Benefits
Moringa oleifera's health benefits have long since been well understood and cherished by the people of Asia and Africa. The Moringa tree's uses as a health and medicinal plant can be traced back centuries; there are documented references of it's oil being placed in the tombs of ancient Egyptians. In fact, the Moringa tree's benefits are so significant, it has been called the Tree of Life in many cultures. What the east has long since known is now being understood by the west, as more and more people in Europe and America begin to explore the benefits of alternative healing.
Because the Moringa tree is rich in nutrients, and because the tree's various parts can all be used, it's many benefits vary depending on which part of the plant is being used. The young, immature Moringa oleifera pods are the most valued and widely used of all the tree parts. The pods are extremely nutritious, containing essential amino acids, forming a complete protein source, and many vitamins, minerals, co-enzymes, and antioxidants.
How can Moringa oleifera benefit you?
The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few of the many real benefits people discover when taking this amazing product:

No wonder it's is called 'Mother's Best Friend' in cultures across Africa!
- Healthy blood sugar levels - antioxidants and unique regulating compounds help control blood sugar and keep the blood free of unhealthy substances.
Just a few of the other many benefits of Moringa oleifera include increased flexibility, improved sensory perception, better sleep cycles, decreased depression and anxiety, and improved memory. It has been used to help those with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and even cancer.
Highly valued Moringa oil is extracted from the pods, and even the remaining seed cake does not go to waste. The seed cake can be used as a coagulant to clarify dirty and turbid water. It is used as an effective means of removing sediment and bacteria from water, helping to purify and treat water naturally, a useful benefit in areas where industrial water treatment is not available.
Moringa leaves are perhaps equally valuable and provide powerful benefits to anyone who is conscious of their nutrient intake. The leaves of the Moringa tree are among the most protein-dense leaves of any plant species. They also contain high levels of vitamin A comparable to carrots, calcium comparable to milk, and vitamin C comparable to oranges, as well as high amounts of other vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
Unlike factory produced synthesized pills, the Moringa leaf is crushed and inserted directly into a capsule, retaining all its nutritive value. Moringa leaves can be used in food preparation, and also brewed as a tea, either alone or in combination with other teas. Even a small glass of Moringa tea benefits the drinker with a host of nutrients.
Q: Is Moringa oleifera just another dietary fad/super food?
A: Moringa oleifera has been in use for more than 2,000 years and is a very valued plant for a wide variety of applications. It has been revered for centuries in countries in Asia and Africa for both its healing and nutritive value. It is only now being discovered in western culture as people look to nature for health and treatment. In many third world countries, it continues to form the basis for nutritional programs put into place by charitable organizations. The biggest challenge for Moringa oleifera is the "too good to be true" syndrome. It offers so much, that it is difficult to believe such a simple plant can be so useful.
Q: If it's is so good, how come I haven't heard of it?
A: Moringa oleifera is known by over 200 names in many different countries, which adds to its anonymity. It is usually the product of tropical and sub-tropical countries, where the hardy plant survives well and provides sustenance to native people. As a result, this product hasn't been commercially farmed and produced on an industrial scale. However, it is incorporated into many "proprietary" formulas for nutritional supplements and the oil is used in many luxurious cosmetics.
Q: With the accessibility to fresh vegetables in most shops, why is a supplement like Moringa oleifera necessary?
A: Time, not availability is usually the issue. Gyms, swimming pools and basketball courts abound, but we are more out of shape now than at any time in our history. In an ideal society, we would have the time to cook all of our meals from scratch with fresh vegetables that we can personally vouch for. However, most of us are so busy in the evenings with after-school activities, homework, travel, and chores, that meals are usually grabbed from the freezer or emptied from a can. As a result, our food is reconstituted, reheated, "enriched", preserved, and genetically modified. We have only to look at the health of our youth, with a staggering increase in obesity, juvenile diabetes, and autism, to determine that all is not well in the world of nutrition. Our bodies were designed to get our nutrition primarily from plant sources. Balance is the key and Moringa oleifera is a naturally balanced nutritional supplement.
Q: Where is your Moringa grown?
A: They have found and nurtured several partners from tropical countries, who can meet our stringent quality control and delivery requirements. They have partners in Africa, India, and Central America.

A: Their capsules contain Moringa oleifera leaf powder. The leaf is considered the storehouse of all nutrition in the plant and theirr ingredient list consists of the leaf powder and vegetarian capsules.
Q: Is your Moringa organic?
A: While their Moringa is grown responsibly, it is not Certified Organic at this time. Unless the product can bear the USDA label (which requires certification), it is not considered "organic".
Q: Are their products gluten and monosodium glutamate (MSG) free?
A: Yes, their products are 100% free of gluten and monosodium glutamate (MSG).
Q: I have heard that Moringa is high in calcium. Is it safe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance?
A: You have heard right. Moringa is rich in many nutrients and has a high calcium value, pound for pound, 17 times the calcium in milk. Despite this, it is safe for all to consume, including those who are lactose intolerant, as it doesn't contain any lactose.
Q: Is your Moringa genetically modified?
A: No. Moringa oleifera is beneficial in its natural form and does not need to be genetically modified at any level. Studies in animals show genetically modified food can cause abnormalities in adults and children, and can be harmful to health. Their Moringa is grown in a natural, sustainable environment, and is pesticide, herbicide, and chemical-free, so you can rest assured it is safe to consume.
Q: How much Moringa should I take each day?
A: We recommend two capsules in the morning with breakfast and two in the evening with your evening meal. For powder, use one teaspoon twice daily.
Q: Do I need a prescription for Moringa?
A: No, you don't. It is a completely safe and natural product, which contains ingredients your body will recognize for their nutritive value. Moringa is one of the few plants that can be consumed by the entire family. In fact the World Health Organization recommends feeding malnourished infants and children Moringa on a daily basis. If you are concerned or suffer from a medical disability, we recommend you speak to your health care practitioner before consuming Moringa products.
Q: What are some of the health benefits to consuming Moringa?
A: There are many health benefits to consuming Moringa, which is why it has earned the title of a super food, and is also sometimes known as The Miracle Tree, or the Tree of Life. While the benefits vary in degree from person to person, our customers have reported improvement in digestion, vision, energy levels, mental clarity, and overall well being. They also use Moringa to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall health and wellness supplement.
Q: Are there any side effects I may experience?
A: Moringa is chockfull of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids. According to the International Organization, Trees for Life, extensive research conducted at the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Centre in Ghana has found that it's leaf powder has no toxic elements and no side effects were observed even in families consuming high amounts of Moringa.
However, each person is unique and responds differently. If you do suffer any side effects, they may range from mild headaches and upset stomachs, to nausea. This is simply the result of toxins being eliminated from your body. Gradually, these side effects should disappear.
Q: Can Moringa cure my illness or disease?
A: Moringa is a food and nutritional supplement and does not lay claim to cure or prevent any illness or disease. The FDA approves drugs to offer these benefits. Moringa is not a drug. Many of our customers consume it to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall wellness supplement.
