The Health Benefits of Moringa
Moringa lives up to the hype as well: gram for gram, the plant has two times the protein of yogurt, four times the calcium of milk, 25 times the iron of spinach, 15 times the potassium of bananas, four times the vitamin A of carrots, and seven times the Vitamin C content of oranges, making it one of the superfoods of superfoods. And to top it all off, it tastes pretty good—similar to spinach to be exact—making it an easy addition to just about anything, which is how it’s used in most of the world. It’s also rich in B-vitamins, magnesium and antioxidants like quercetin, which has been shown as an effective treatment for everything from cancer, to allergies of all kinds (food, environmental and otherwise), to inflammation, viruses and cognitive impairment, making it both nutritious and medicinal when taken regularly.
Baobab – a Gift of Nature
The uses of baobab are many. The bark and rind are used for cord fibres and to fuel the slow and hot pottery-baking processes. The young, tender leaves of all the baobabs, particularly the dark-leaf vegetable types, are used as green or dried vegetables in sauces. The black- and red-trunk baobabs are often preferred for their fruits. The white, powdery pulp of the fruit capsule is extracted and used as a flavouring in a variety of cool and hot drinks. The baobab capsule pulp is reported to have a high content of vitamin C. One source reports that the content of vitamin C in the baobab fruit is 1690 mg/kg, compared with 1060 mg/kg for fresh hot pepper
