Growing, Producing, and Eating Moringa

Moringa is a very sustainable plant because it grows in many different regions, climates and soil types. It's a drought-resistant plant that can grow without too much water or care. Moringa is also one of the few plants that produce pods year round - meaning you will never run out.


Moringa is also an amazing source of nutrients. If you're a vegan or vegetarian, moringa can provide many vitamins and minerals that are harder to find in plant-based diets, like vitamin A, potassium, calcium and iron! It's one of the few plants that provides you with all nine essential amino acids our bodies need to stay healthy and feel full.


If you're not a vegan, moringa can also provide some essential amino acids like lysine, which is hard to find in animal proteins. Moringa is gluten free, dairy-free and soy-free as well - making it an excellent food for those with sensitivities or allergies
