Moringa grows in subtropical areas. The leaves of the Moringa plant are loaded with vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and more. This is the reason why Moringa is also called “Tree of Life” or “Mother`s Best Friend”. Imagine you would have a tree in your garden that will meet all your nutritional needs and take care of your hair and skin. These humble leaves are a powerhouse of nutritional value for everyone. Take a look at this chart and feel free to share it.
