 As a mother who is a health conscious for her babies I found Malunggay (Moringa oelifera) a very economical and very nutritious food which no other vegetables can beat when it comes to nutrients that it gives. Ever since I put this "miracle tree" in our diet, our family stayed healthy... and we said "goodbye illness welcome healthy body".
