Moringa oleifera , also known as horseradish tree because of the pungent, bitter flavor of the roots, is a tree native to India. While it has recently gained its popularity across the globe as a superfood, the nutrient-packed plant has been used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years. The fragile leaves are the most popular part of the plant. They can be eaten whole but are most often dried and ground into a fine, velvety powder. The Amino acid, Vitamin, and Mineral rich Moringa leaves makes it a great natural energy booster, despite the fact that they are caffeine-free.
