Moringa (Moringa oleifera)
Moringa is a tree native to parts of Africa and Asia and the name is derived from murungai/muringa, the Tamil/Malayalam word for drumstick. Currently, most Moringa comes from India, but it is also found in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa and Taiwan. The taste resembles horseradish and led to its nickname of the horseradish tree. Many underdeveloped countries rely on the moringa to help with their malnutrition problems and some humanitarian aid organisations use it to help keep people’s nutrition levels up and prevent starvation. Read more about the amazing benefits of moringa and how to purchase it.

Green tea, as a drink, is highly recommended as it has some great health benefits. However, green tea supplements are not advised as there have been cases of serious liver damage when a concentrated amount of catechins are consumed. This can happen within three months of doses of 600 mg and can lead to a liver transplant being required.

Many people do not realise that there is a lot of protein in many plant foods. When calculating the amount of protein to eat per day this must be taken into consideration. Eating too much protein rich food to satisfy hunger is damaging to the liver and kidneys. High fibre and starchy foods, such as whole grains and vegetables, need to be consumed more, to feel full, as they are highly beneficial to the digestive system and intestinal flora which assist in the process of amino acid manufacturing. If nitrogen intake exceeds nitrogen excretion, as can occur with high-protein diets, excess protein leaves the body accompanied by calcium, increasing the risk for kidney stones and osteoporosis. Read more and find out the highest sources of plant protein.
