No need to fight at the dinner table over kale and other greens, Moringa is a 100% natural superfood that is easy to take and far surpasses the nutrient count in the vegetables on your dinner plate.

A treasure chest full of all the essential nutrients that are needed to improve your immunity and elevate your energy, we chatted to Moringa Initiative’s Natasha Kilburn and Lloyd Abernethy, who shared some insight as to just how incredible the benefits of Moringa can be.

“Prevention is better than cure during the chilly season, and protecting your immune system from flues and infections going around shouldn’t need to cost an arm and a leg. Loaded with an abundance of sufficient minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, Moringa is a brilliant way to boost your body, especially around this time of year,” says Natasha, who has been hands on, alongside her father, in the cultivation of 35 hectares of beautiful Moringa growing on the farm they are leasing in Zambia.

“Health and quality living are our way of life. Our plantation is nurtured by our staff of 150 employees who reside on the farm, and 60 per cent of our workforce are women. Our Moringa is grown in the fertile soils of Chisamba, free of pesticides and chemicals. The only things added are natural compost, sun, water and rain. Once our Moringa plants have soaked up this goodness and grown to optimum size, we tenderly harvest them by hand, wash and leave them to dry for a period of 12 hours,” she adds.

When ready, they process the leaves into Moringa Powder, Tea and Capsules. These Capsules are manufactured by a reputable medical company in Durban.

“We supply Zambia, South Africa and the international market with Moringa Miracle Capsules, Tea, Powder and Pet Supplement. We focus on educating people on the health benefits of Moringa and encourage everyone to share this knowledge. The greatest part about being involved in Moringa for us is changing people’s lives and helping them realise the magnitude of their health that was hidden before with unhealthy diets and lethargy. Moringa is an ancient miracle that has never ceased to disappoint.”

The miracle of Moringa lies in these incredible components:

2 times the PROTEIN of kale

12 times the VITAMIN C of oranges

10 times the VITAMIN A of carrots

15 times the POTASSIUM of bananas

17 times the CALCIUM of milk

So, what are you waiting for? One plant solves multiple problems.
