Moringa the miracle tree cures illnes, Moringa purifies water,feeds the hungry and combats malnutrition. http://miracletrees.org/ http://moringatrees.org/

In addition to food, shelter and clothing, water is one of our basic human needs, and lack of potable water is a major cause of death and disease in our world.

Using natural materials to clarify water is a technique that has been practiced for centuries and of all the materials that have been used, seeds of moringa have been found to be one of the most effective.

Studies have been conducted since the early 1970's to test the effectiveness of moringa seeds for treating water. These studies have confirmed that the seeds are highly effective in removing suspended particles from water with medium to high levels of turbidity (moringa seeds are less effective at treating water with low levels of turbidity).

Solutions of moringa seeds for water treatment may be prepared from seed kernels or from the solid residue remaining after oil extraction (presscake). Moringa seeds, seed kernels or dried presscake can be stored for long Water purification methods using seeds from the Moringa tree have been known about for centuries, but their use has been limited geographically.

In order to make an effective water purification system, the Moringa seeds are dried and then ground into a powder. Unlike other particles in the water such as clay, bacteria, and other toxic materials which are negatively charged, the protein in the Moringa seed powder is positively charged, thereby attracting the negatively charged particles like a magnet. The flocs formed by the floculation process can then be easily removed by allowing the water to settle, or removed by filtration.

Moringa oleifera seeds treat water on two levels, acting both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. It is generally accepted that moringa works as a coagulant due to positively charged, water-soluble proteins, which bind with negatively charged particles (silt, clay, bacteria, toxins, etc) allowing the resulting "flocs" to settle to the bottom or be removed by filtration.

Application of plant flocculants such as Moringa oleifera is highly recommended for domestic water purification in developing countries, where people are used to drink contaminated turbid water. Moringa does not guarantee that the raw water ends up completely (100%) free of pathogenic germs. It is cleaned and drinkable but not completely purified. Since it reduces the number of suspended particles drastically ( flocculates ) it also
reduces the quantity of microorganisms in raw water automatically. Consequently, this method might reduce waterborn deseases in those countries considerably.

Moringa o. trees can be cultivated very cheaply at the household level or in small communal nuseries which is to be encouraged among the rural population . The harvest of a mature single tree ( 3 kg ) will treat about 30000 liters of water. To guarantee coagulant supplies of high quality, along with speedy fruit production, big seed size, and rich yields, cultivation all over the tropical belt should be coordinated by global exchange of seed materials from the most suitable clones, special breeding efforts and subsequent local application of vegetative propagation
and grafting.

"Without Moringa there is no life" goes the saying of the Konso people who inhabit the lowlands of southern Ethiopia, expressing the ancient link that unites them to the Moringa plant. Called "the miracle tree" in local language, is known for its capacity to withstand prolonged periods of drought.

Within the past ten years, Moringa oleifera, a tropical, multipurpose tree has grown from being practically unknown, even unheard of, to being a new and promising nutritional and economic resource for developing countries. The Moringa oleifera tree leaves, which are easy to grow and rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, are becoming widely used in projects fghting against malnutrition. Producing Moringa oleifera leaves is also a means of generating agricultural income, developing the food processing industry and founding new businesses.

The Miracle Tree was featured on the popular talk show ABC "The View" as a "Slim Down Super Food" due to its incredible energy boosting, nutrient dense, weight loss and antioxidant properties, without side effects.
