Ounce for ounce, moringa leaves are known to contain 7 times the Vitamin C content of oranges, 4 times the calcium and twice the protein in milk, 4 times the vitamin A in carrots, and 3 times the potassium in bananas.
Plus, its also packing amino acids and various phenolics – Moringa’s home to a rich and rare combo of zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid and kaempferol. Oh, as for omega-3s and chlorophyll? Yea, it’s got those, too.
