This month our Members Only tea is the magical, wellness benefit rich Moringa Moon, featured in The Giving Box. This exquisite wellness tea is designed to sustain your radiance & joy as we begin the Winter season.
Moringa is called the Tree of Life or Miracle Tree. Moringa has been used for over 5,000 years as a healing plant and is a valuable food crop, drought resistant, grows very fast and is highly nutritive. The emerald green leaves contain several vitamins & minerals that support healthy metabolism and healthy inflammatory level.
Moringa leaves are 25% protein and contain all 9 essential amino acids. They’re also a great source of fiber and plant-based iron. Moringa leaf powder contains an astonishing 28 mg of iron per 100g!
Here's The Short List of Moringa's Wellness Benefits:

GRA believes that natural, affordable, locally grown herbs and trees provide an important, and often overlooked, solution to the many health challenges facing residents of Tanzania's Lake Victoria region. They have promoted the use of a variety of herbal remedies, including neem and, of course, Moringa oleifera.
Another area of their positive impact is the prevention and treatment of Malaria. Malaria is the number one health challenge for people living in the Lake Victoria Region of Tanzania. According to UN estimates, one child in Africa dies every 30 seconds from malaria. It accounts for one in five childhood deaths. GRA is responding to this crisis by promoting and subsidizing the use of a homeopathic neem tincture and mosquito bed nets to prevent malaria, as well as the use of Master Mineral Supplement (MMS) to treat malaria.
