Moringa leaf powder is produced by harvesting, drying then milling the
leaves. The powder is extremely nutrient dense. It contains 90+
nutrients and 40+ antioxidants. It is an excellent source of vitamin A,
vitamin C, iron, protein, fibre, calcium, magnesium and potassium.

on food. It can be used in cooking, but high temperatures destroy some
of the nutrients. A teaspoonful or so can be placed directly under the

powder. It makes a nice 'green tea' with a bit of lemon and yacon,
xylitol, or agave according to preference and taste. Great to add to
any smoothie or protein shake.
