It’s a nutritional powerhouse: 

Moringa has been named a superfood for good reason. It has three times the potassium of a banana, three times the calcium of milk, and two times the protein of yoghurt – three grams per tablespoon. Any vegan eaters who have a tough time getting enough protein can benefit from the introduction of moringa into their diet.

Meet moringa, the Indian superfood everyone's talking about

Moringa has been revered among Ayurvedic circles for hundreds of years, but it’s currently poised to become the hot superfood of 2016. Nearly every part of the moringa oleifera, or drumstick tree, is edible and packed with vitamin C, protein, iron, and calcium.

If you can’t get your hands on the fresh greens yet – not to worry – you can readily take a supplement or toss a powdered version into a smoothie to reap its benefits.
