Moringa is the sole genus in the flowering plant family Moringaceae. The genus Moringa in turn is made up of 12 species. The species most common, and which is the main subject of this book is the speices called "Moringa Oleifera." Moringa Oleifera is found in many tropical and sub-tropical regions. Moringa can be grown in the even the harshest and driest of soils, where barely anything else will grow. In fact, one of the nicknames of Moringa is "never die" due to its incredible ability to survive harsh weather and even drought.
The most incredible thing about Moringa is the amount of nutritional and medicinal chemicals and compounds found in this plant. The chart below will give you a quick view of some of the notable nutrients contained in this plant.
