Having the Moringa leaves in our chicken or fish soup is not new to me. But seeing a heart-shaped moringa leaf from a bunch of stems that I was stuffing, it really caught my attention.
From the image above, the heart-shaped leaf is just so perfectly heart-shaped for me. This, for me, is just a reminder that this Moringa not just provides a lot of benefits for me as I am still breastfeeding but for my heart as well. And maybe this reminds me that it is February already.
But whatever it would be, this heart-shaped moringa, or even those with regular leaf shape, has a lot of good stuff to provide to us. It is used as a supplement in treating the so-called “tired blood” or anemia. It is also used to treat arthritis and other joint pain, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes and a lot more illnesses and even parasitic infections. As mentioned above, this Moringa also helps me produce or increase my breast milk production.
Moreover, locally, this Moringa is known as Malunggay, Kamunggay, Kalamunggay. Even the seeds and the flowers of this Moringa plant can be added in any soups and can be consumed.
