Moringa trees are indigenous to
the Himalayan foothills and are currently cultivated extensively in India and
parts of Asia. Commercial
production continues to spread around the world, but remains elusive to the
United States for the most part; that in part is due to lack of awareness of
its spectrum of activity, plus the plants’ growing zone requirements limit
production to tropical or subtropical regions.
Research for additional uses of
Moringa are actively being pursued in the USA but mostly in the medicinal and
nutritional markets. It is not feasible to consider bringing the fresh, unprocessed materials from non-USA
countries due to the time frame for shipment and the processing requirements
that may alter natural properties that are being sought out in the raw
It is Miracle Tree Farms goal to
increase development of the raw materials, promote awareness of the benefits,
and support research and industry that could move to a more sustainable and
safer system for delivering our food and water sources.
Miracle Tree Farms is currently growing
Moringa trees on its 10-acre farm in South Central Florida. We hope this
to be a far cry from acreage requirements in the near future and will be
looking to partner with other growers as industry needs grow.
The astounding beneficial properties
of the entire plant could potentially lead to indefinite end product
development, thus increasing it’s cultivation and availability requirements in
the United States.
Some areas that are being
explored for possible uses of Moringa as a sustainable American product are:
nutrition = Food and Supplement products
= Cancer, H. pylori, antibacterial, antifungal, etc
Care = Oil
feed = Fresh or dried leaves
purification = Pods
crop growth = Extract
