The Miracle Tree

Imagine a tree that will meet all your nutritional needs, take care of you medicinally, and purify your water for you. This tree actually exists.

For centuries indigenous people in northern India and many parts of Africa have known the many benefits of Moringa oleifera. Its uses are as unique as the many names it is known by, such as clarifier tree, horseradish tree, drumstick tree and in East Africa it has the alias 'mother's best friend.'

Actually we had a drumstick tree in our garden in India and I didn´t know that they were that useful. But the drumsticks really taste delicious. I loved to eat them as a curry.
