Attention vegetarians and parents: Moringa leaves contain about 40% protein, with all of the 8 essential amino acids present. Essential amino acids are those that the human body cannot synthesize; therefore they must be supplied by diet. Moringa is considered to have the highest protein ratio of any plant so far studied on earth!
Attention lactose-intolerant friends: Calcium is a vital macro element for human health. A cup (8 ounces) of milk or yogurt could supply 300-400 mg (about half of the daily necessary amount), while 8 ounces of Moringa leaves contain 1,000 mg calcium. Moringa leaf powder of the same weight (8 ounces) contains over 4,000 mg calcium.
Attention anemic friends: Moringa is very high in iron. Three ounces (about 100g) contain 7 mg of iron, while the leaf powder has 28mg. One of the richest iron sources, roast beef, has only 2 mg iron proportionally per three ounces.
Attention everybody: Vitamin C, one of the most disputed, talked about and supplemented vitamins, is found in Moringa in large quantities. 100 g of Moringa leaves contain more than 200 mg vitamin C, while 100 g of orange juice has only about 40 mg.
