Moringa is a fast-growing tree native to South Asia and now found all throughout the tropics.  It's also known as Mulunggay, or the Miracle Tree, as it is so high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential amino acids.  It's well-known and highly regarded for its ability to increase breastmilk production in nursing mothers.  It has:

  • 12 times the Vitamin C of oranges
  • 10 times the Vitamin A of carrots
  • 17 times the Calcium of milk
  • 15 times the Potassium of bananas
  • 9 times the protein of yogurt
  • 25 times more iron than spinach

It is used as a superfood and valuable food source for many regions around the world.  Along with its ability to increase breastmilk production, the Ayurvedic system of medicine associates it with the “cure or prevention of about 300 different diseases”.

Along with its high concentration of vital nutrients, it also has been shown to have the following actions:

  • Anti-diabetic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-tumor
  • Anti-cancer
  • Anti-fungal
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Improves liver function
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Eliminates water weight
  • Supports the thyroid
  • Aphrodisiac

It can safely be used by pregnant women after the first trimester to help provide nutrition.  It should not pose a risk of starting breastmilk production prematurely.  Other than the note below, there are no known contraindications or drug interactions found with this herb.

NOTE:  It should NOT be used by women who are trying to conceive, as it may prevent implantation of the fertilized egg.  It should not be used during the first trimester of pregnancy.

To order:  This herb is available from Herb Lore in the tincture form and as part of our Nursing Tea Moringa Blend and Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend.

Testimonial

In mid-November, my partner M and I got Cvd-19. We both turned 70 this past November as well.  At the time I ordered the products, we had not yet been tested, but we were sick for sure. The virus was trying to get into my lungs so I knew Mullein would be a good item. As soon as we began taking your tinctures, we felt a turn in our recovery and from that point we started to heal rapidly. The Mullein seemed to prevent the virus from going into my lungs.  Once the bit of shortness of breath cleared by using the Mullein, I had a mild cough, which the Quiet Cough helped with.  When we got the positive test result, we were already about 90% recovered!! I continue to take the Mullein and Quiet Cough to keep my lungs healthy with the cold weather here..but I feel great!!  At the age of 70 we both recovered 100% with no lingering side effects....Thanks to the Mullein, the virus never completed its journey into my lungs and M didn’t feel that symptom at all. We recovered fully by the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. So thank you so so so much!  We feel great and full of energy!  S.R.
