Moringa oleifera


Moringa oleifera

THE MIRACLE TREE


Also known as the “miraculous tree”, moringa oleifera is a spontaneously and luxuriantly growing plant, typically found in warm and arid lands, with extraordinary nutritious properties and the most varied uses. For millennia it has been used for therapeutic purposes in the entire inter-tropical belt of the developing Countries, besides representing an irreplaceable support in the diet of these populations. In fact, it represents the most nutritious available food in areas such as Malawi, Senegal and India.

“According to the ayurvedic medicine, the leaves of moringa oleifera can prevent and cure over 300 diseases.”

MISSION

The Priapo Foundation intends to realise and support over time various environmentally friendly farms committed to cultivating, processing and selling moringa. The production of this extraordinary plant, in fact, may help the populations of the entire world to have a greater control over their diet.
Through the creation of farms that dedicate themselves to the cultivation of moringa, it will be possible to help children and their families in living on the fruits of their own land.

CREATION OF FARMS DEDICATED TO CULTIVATION OF MORINGA

The moringa powder is obtained from the tree leaves and seeds, which are dried and finally ground. Incredibly nutritious, it contains nine essential amino acids, 46 different antioxidants, 27 vitamins and a large number of mineral salts. It contains twice the number of proteins that are present in a yogurt, three times the potassium contained in bananas, four times the vitamin A contained in carrots and four times the calcium supplied by milk. To conclude, it offers a quantity of vitamin C that is seven times higher than the one contained in oranges. It is also rich in vitamin E, K, B1 and D; the oil extracted from the seeds is a great antibiotic against bacteria, while the root is an effective cardio-toner.
