I’ll give you some info about this wondrous leafy vegetable.

The word ‘Malunggay‘ is actually the name so-called only in the Philippines to this tropical, with drooping branches and leaves, and a fast-growing vegetable tree. The tree is also named ‘Moringa’ in English, Moringa oleifera, its scientific name and ‘Sajina’ in India.

Now a days, Malunggay has been keenly studied and a subject to many researches due to its potentials in the health and medical field. In fact, one research published by the Bureau of Plant Industry reporting that malunggay leaves has calcium contents which is approximately equivalent to 4 glasses of milk. It also contains potassium remarkably comparable to the contents present in banana. Vitamin C can also be contained in malunggay, as well as iron, vitamin A and protein.

These are just some of the wonders of this vegetable tree, malunggay.
