It has an impressive range of medicinal uses with high nutritional value.
Different parts of this plant contain a profile of important minerals and are a good source of protein, vitamins, beta-carotene, amino acids and various phenolics. The Moringa plant provides a rich and rare combination of zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid and kaempferol.
