Moringa May

Moringa Oleifera , also known as the tree of life is of the most powerful superfoods in the world. Moringa is found predominantly across West Africa and India. I incorporate moringa into my lifestyle in 2 ways:

  1. Internally by adding moringa to my smoothies and teas.
  2. Externally through Moringa infused oil and hair masks.


Benefits of Moringa when consumed:

Anti-inflammatory and can be used to treat chronic head aches

Detoxifying and protects the liver
