Bioavailability of Minerals from the whole plant:

- Calcium – up to 8,79 times more bioavailable.
- Chromium – up to 25 times more bioavailable.
- Copper – 1,85 stays longer in the liver.
- Iron – 1,77 times more absorbed into the blood.
- Magnesium – up to 2,20 times more bioavailable.
- Manganese – 1,63 times more maintained in the liver.
- Molybdenum – 16,49 times more absorbed into the blood.
- Selenium – up to 17,60 times the antioxidant effect.
- Zinc – 6,46 times more absorbed into the blood.

All parts of the plant are edible. The content of proteins, vitamins and minerals is outstanding. The flavor is pleasant and the various parts can be consumed raw (especially the leaves and flowers) or cooked in various ways.
ways.

These are very interesting trees with attractive shapes. It admits the prunings very well. They can be used as shade trees, as hedges, visual and auditory screens, even as windbreaks. Many species, especially
“Bottle trees” are very interesting as isolated specimens.

The seeds are very useful as one of the best known natural flocculants and are widely used in the purification and purification of river waters and turbid waters. It is also used in the clarification of honey and sugar cane juice.

Accept:

Since it is not an exclusive tree, it is a good support for other climbing species. It is especially suitable for the type of agriculture known as "alley cropping", due to certain characteristics that make it very suitable, such as its rapid growth, deep and vertical roots, few lateral roots, little shade and high productivity. of biomass with high nitrogen content that enriches the land.

“Alley cultivation” consists of cultivating annual or short-cycle herbaceous species between rows of trees that, by forming the “alleys,” serve as protection against wind and excessive sun and enrich the land. The mature seed has a content of almost 40% oil.

Moringa oil is of excellent quality (73% oleic acid, similar to olive oil) for cooking. Sold for many years as “good oil,” it is used in cooking and in perfumery and has been used as a lubricant for watches, but was long ago replaced with whale oil. It can also be used to make soap and is also excellent for burning for lighting purposes.

The oil takes time to become rancid. It is reported that the species Mornga oil can be extracted at home. The seeds from the mature 60 cm (24 in) long pods are roasted, crushed and placed in boiling water for 5 minutes. After straining and letting them sit overnight, the moringa oil floats to the surface.

EDIBLE PARTS AND PREPARATION WAYS:

Fruits, or Green Pods, immature: They are consumed cooked. They taste like green beans or string beans. They have commercial value in India, which exports them fresh or canned; they are very little known outside Hindu communities. Seeds from the Ripe Pods: immerse in boiling water, with a little salt, for a few minutes. The pod is opened and the seeds are extracted, ready to eat. The flavor is similar to that of chickpeas. They can also be consumed
toasts, very nutritious.

Young leaves: They are prepared boiled in the same way, they are also used for stews and other varied dishes. Raw they are eaten in salads. The flavor is slightly spicy, intermediate between watercress and radish.

Estate: The roots of the very young trees (practically in seedbeds, just over a hand's length high) are tuberous, with a very thick main root, like a small carrot, the flavor is spicy, similar to that of radishes.

Flowers: Also edible in salad. Many of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids are very important for a healthy diet.

For physical development and good health, a person needs adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutrients.
A deficiency of any nutrient causes health problems.
Some of the problems caused by a lack of vitamin C in the diet are well known: scurvy due to vitamin C deficiency; Night blindness due to vitamin A deficiency; kwashiorkor, due to protein deficiency; Iron deficiency anemia.

Other health problems are caused by deficiencies of little-known but essential vitamins and minerals for humans and their functions.

Pruning should be done in the rainy season, not in summer.
Typically, the first pruning should be done after 2-3 months, when the tree reaches a height of 2-3 meters.
50% of the trees are cut diagonally or diagonally, up to a height of 1 or 1,50 meters.
Branches 1 or 1,50 meters long are also cut, leaving only 0,50 or 0,75 meters.
After another 2-3 months, the tree will again reach a height of 3-4 meters. The cut is made again, leaving it at 2,50 or 3 meters.
We do the same with the branches, the length of the branches should be 1,50 meters.
New pruning can be done before the ninth month when the tree blooms and bears fruit. The idea is to form a tree 3 or 4 meters high with 1,50 branches.

It is important to consider not only the value of moringa as a food product but also the fact that it may be one of the few vegetables available in times of drought.Ecoportal.net
