Widely known as the "miracle tree" and revered by healers (and mothers) since the time of ancient India, moringa offers a nutrient-packed, antioxidant-rich blend of phytochemicals, essential amino acids and vitamins effective for a variety of uses from nutritional supplements and medicinal treatments to water purification and machine lubrication. "Super" foods offer a huge variety of benefits only recently appreciated by modern science, and moringa stands out among them as a powerhouse.
Moringa has a palliative effect on many allergies, digestive disorders and edema. It's high concentration of antioxidants (46) helps protect the liver, eyes, cardiovascular system, bones, hair and skin. It helps prevent diabetes, bronchial asthma, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It has strong anti-inflammatory, bacterial, fungal and allergenic properties, aids in the absorption of iron and helps remove toxins and heavy metals. Natural COX-2 inhibitors make it an excellent treatment for pain relief.
Moringa is packed with vitamins and minerals, and is high in protien and fiber. Almost all of the plant is edible, and can supplement or feature in a wide range of recipes from curries and soups to omeletes and salads to chicken, fish and meats to rice and pasta. The seed oil is oderless and resists rancidity. Blue dye is made from the sap, oil from the seed, animal feed from the leaves and fertilizer from seed cake. Coagulant properties make it excellent for water filtration and purification, while phytochemicals in the leaves make an effective hand soap. Moringa is the miracle tree that keeps giving.

"So.......exactly how do I eat moringa seeds to achieve desired results? Below are few tips to help you make the most of the moringa seeds you've got so as not to do more harm than good to yourself. Did I say "more harm"? Yes! Too much of everything is BAD!"
DO NOT EAT MORINGA SEEDS ON AN EMPTY STOMACH! It is not advisable to eat moringa seeds when you have not taken any food before, especially early in the morning. What will happen if I do that? Good question. It may cause you to purge. Although that is not a bad one entirely because it is the after-effect of detoxification. So if you are ready to frequent the toilet, go ahead... But I will advice you to do that only when you want to see that result-DETOXIFICATION. RULE NO. 2
DO NOT EAT MORINGA SEEDS WITH THE COVERING(PEELS) It is not hygienic eating the moringa seeds with the bark on. Again, for every rule there is an exception. Therefore for those who want to achieve faster weight-loss, make sure you wash the moringa seeds with water and salt and rinse at least twice. Then you can eat them that way. Like I said, if you want to loose weight with moringa seeds, that is the trick... Having said that, I need to also tell you the reason behind it isn't it? Moringa seeds back (covering) are very fibrous! I have just told you a million-dollar secret!
RULE NO. 3
DO NOT EAT MORINGA SEEDS IF YOU ARE PREGNANT! Now read this slowly again and again... If you are pregnant, please STOP taking moringa seeds until after delivery. But can you be taking other moringa products, Yes! Especially the moringa leaves/leaf powder. But for the seeds, please STOP! Incidentally, if you are looking for the fruit of the womb, or trying to conceive(TTC), moringa seeds are A MUST for you. Can you see the irony there? Yes, that is MORINGA for you.
I recommend you Buy Fresh Moringa seeds on Amazon
RULE NO. 4 DO NOT EAT MORE THAN TWO(2) MORINGA SEEDS PER TIME! Yes! You read right. Do not mind my friend who ate over 20 seeds at a go. That is not correct. Eat a maximum of two (2) moringa seeds per time. In fact, if you are eating for the first time, start with one(1). Subsequently you may take two.
