Why is Moringa classified a Super food?


From me Peter welcome to themoringablog.co.za I hope that all those questions you’ve being asking about Moringa can be answered. It’s my goal, over the next couple of years, to make themoringablog.co.za the foremost repository of Moringa information. If you’re not sure exactly what Moringa is – here’s a brief overview.
