    wahi ukamwone dr. usizarau hiyo dalili siyo nzuri,
    pia kama unazo mbegu za mlonge
    tumia 3x3 kila mbegu 3 ziambatane na maji lita moja
    hii itakusaidia sana.

    What is Moringa oleifera?
    Moringa oleifera is a fast growing, aesthetically pleasing small tree adapted to arid, sandy conditions. The species is characterized by its long, drumstick shaped pods that contain its seeds. Within the first year of growth, moringa has been shown to grow up to 4 meters and can bear fruit within the same first year (Folkard and Sutherland, 1996). Virtually every part of the tree is beneficial in some way, which is of great importance in areas where people have a direct dependence on trees, crops and animals for their livelihood. The studies that have been performed on moringa have taken place primarily in India and Africa, but it seems that there may be a growing interest in the cultivation possibilities in the more humid tropics, including Central and South America. Depending on the purpose and quantity desired, moringa can be grown in a nursery as a community project or on a smaller scale at the family level. It can function as windbreaks for erosion control, live fences, as an ornamental or intercropped to provide semi-shade to species requiring less direct sunlight (ICRAF).

    What are some of the benefits?
    According to the research I have done, the benefits of Moringa oleifera are almost too numerous to name. However, several benefits seem to be repeated again and again, therefore leading me to believe these are the most important and useful in extreme situations, like drought conditions in arid regions or areas in the wet tropics experiencing rapid rates of deforestation. Moringa is naturalized in Tanzania, Nicaragua, Malawi, Brazil, Niger, Indonesia and Senegal (Optima of Africa, Ltd.). The problems in these types of environments are plentiful: lack of food during the dry season, lack of fodder for animals, reduced amounts of firewood, poor nutrition and unsanitary drinking water, to name a few. Can moringa solve all of the tropical world's problems? Definitely not. Can it be integrated into agroforestry systems to raise the quality of life even just a little? Hopefully.
    One brief side note that is definitely worth mentioning, however, is the possibility that cultivation of moringa as an exotic species will lead to it becoming an invasive species, therefore negating the positive aspects it presents. On the PIER (Pacific Island Ecosystems at Risk) page regarding moringa, it is portrayed as a potential danger to sensitive ecosystems because of its success at naturalization. However, it has not been yet proven to be a weed species and more monitoring needs to be done to see if this may be a possibility.

    What are some of the uses?
    First, I will present a brief summary of the medicinal, commercial and nutritional benefits of moringa. Second, I will explore more in depth the ability of moringa seeds to combat the problem of unsafe drinking water by acting as a coagulant during water purification.
    The use of moringa for medicinal purposes may seem to have its roots in folklore and myth, but indigenous people have found much success in using various parts of the tree to cure many physical ailments. For example, the juice from the leaves is believed to stabilize blood pressure, the flowers are used to cure inflammations, the pods are used for joint pain, the roots are used to treat rheumatism, and the bark can be chewed as a digestive. These are just some of uses presented by Optima of Africa, Ltd.
    Most sources seem to agree on the excellent nutritional benefits of moringa. Because the tree produces leaves during the dry season and during times of drought, it is an excellent source of green vegetable when little other food is available (Folkard and Sutherland, 1996). The leaves provide many necessary vitamins and minerals and can be eaten cooked or dried. The foliage has been compared to spinach in both its appearance and nutritional quality. According to Optima of Africa, Ltd., a group that has been working with the tree in Tanzania, "25 grams daily of Moringa Leaf Powder will give a child" the following recommended daily allowances...

    Protein 42%, Calcium 125%, Magnesium 61%, Potassium 41%, Iron 71%, Vitamin A 272%, Vitamin C 22%
    These results are impressive, especially when considering this nutrition is available when food sources may be scarce. The leaves and branches may also be used for fodder when nothing else is useable, and the high nutrient content of the leaves would make it a prime candidate to incorporate into a mulching system. This is assuming, however, that the leaves are in abundance and not required as a human food source.
    In addition to the leaves, the pods, or drumsticks, are a great commercial product. In India, they are canned and exported all over the world. Many ethnic grocery stores stock various parts of the tree, but as far as I can tell, they don't quite make it up here to the U.P.
