What is Moringa?

The Moringa tree and its leaves is truly a miracle tree designed specifically for people who live in areas known for malnutrition and poverty. Moringa is a fast-growing, drought-resistant tree that grows even in marginal soils and with very little care.

Nutritional analyses show that the leaves from this tree are very high in protein and contain all of the essential amino acids, including two amino acids that are especially important for children’s diets. Moringa leaves are also packed with essential vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A and C. Delivering such powerful nutrition, these leaves have the potential of obliterating malnutrition and related diseases in developing countries.

Moringa can add health benefits to your diet too! Moringa is becoming more popular in North America as it’s nutritional facts are more commonly realized. LAVI Partners provides jobs to Haitians as they grow, process, and sell 100% Moringa from Haiti. For every bottle of Moringa caplets you buy, LAVI Partners, in partnership with Breathe Partners, donates the equivalent of processed Moringa powder to Haitians in the pursuit of eradicating malnutrition.
