MORINGA OLEIFERA SEE
Moringa oleifera is a shrub of 4 to 5 m in height with upright and then drooping branches with a brownish bark covered with lenticels. In French-speaking Africa, the most common name is "nébéday" which is more or less distorted in the English expression "never die".
The roots and bark of this shrub are antiscorbutic and used externally against irritations. Moringa has rich amounts of calcium, iron and many other vital minerals, as well as a wide variety and large amount of vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.
Originally from India, Moringa Oleifera is now found in Nigeria, Senegal and Mali.
