According to Grant (2017), the moringa plant is of African origin and has been touted as the miracle plant. It has been in Jamaica since 1817 and is now found growing islandwide. Still, many persons are unaware of its medicinal and nutritional benefits. Moringa has seven times
more vitamin C than oranges, four times more vitamin A than carrots, four times more calcium than milk and twice as much protein as milk. It has three times more iron than almond and three
times more vitamin E than spinach. It is considered in many circles to be the number one treatment for high blood pressure and diabetes, which are common to Jamaicans.
The moringa plant increases the natural defence of the body to beautify the skin, promote energy, gives a feeling of wellness, improves the body's immunity, stabilise sugar, provides
nutrients to eyes and brain, acts as an anti-oxidant, and promotes good cholesterol and normal functioning of the kidney and the liver. Moringa, especially the leaves, are also helpful in weight
loss. Persons wanting to lose weight can benefit greatly from ingesting the moringa leaf, which can be cooked like a vegetable, eaten raw, or added to juices or tea. These leaves are low in fat and carbohydrates, but are extremely high in protein, vitamins and minerals.
The moringa leaf can therefore be taken as a nutritional supplement because of its high nutritional content. It is also able to convert food to energy quickly and can therefore reduce the possible storage of fat.
