The Moringa Tree or Moringa Oleifera to use its scientific name, is a medium-sized tree that is native to Africa and Asia. It is also known as the ‘drumstick tree’ or the ‘miracle tree.’ Every part of the moringa tree is valuable: its seeds can be used to purify water; its bark, roots and flowers all have incredible medicinal properties and its leaves are one of the most nutrient-dense foods
on the planet. Moringa leaves are commonly air dried and ground into a powder. Aduna Moringa contains 5 essential vitamins at source or rich source levels and is also high in fibre, protein and antioxidants – it really is one of nature’s most prized creations.

In order to ensure consistency and quality to our valued customers we grow our moringa oleifera on our own organic farm in India and Central America on the backdrop of the Mayan mountains far from any human activity under our stringent conditions . Our moringa products are manufactured and tested for purity and cleanliness,before being packed ready for dispatch.
Ch’ulel Moringa Powder is a 100% organic, raw wholefood made from the naturally-dried leaf of the moringa tree. Although the processing of moringa leaves is simple, the quality is dependent on the delicate conditions needed for harvesting and drying – therefore, not all moringa is made equal. To ensure nutrients are not damaged by the sunlight, Ch’ulel Moringa is harvested before dawn. The leaves are washed in purified water and dried at a steady temperature. At this stage, the nutritional values of the leaf increases greatly – up to 10 times more than the fresh leaves! The dried leaves are then ground into a ready-to-use green powder form that is much easier to incorporate into your diet especially if you are living in a climate where it doesn’t grow and also has a much longer shelf life, perfect for giving your food and drinks a nutritional boost.

Moringa is a food and nutritional supplement and does not lay claim to cure or prevent any illness or disease. The FDA approves drugs to offer these benefits. Moringa is not a drug. Many of our customers consume it to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall wellness supplement.
There is no proof that Moringa can directly cure cancer, however Moringa does contain glucosinolates. These compounds are shared with other chemopreventive (cancer-fighting) foods like broccoli which probably play a role in the anti-cancer activity of this amazing super-food.

Without a doubt, there needs to be more research done to fully understand Moringa’s effect on the human body. There has not been enough research done on Moringa and white blood cell counts to make a conclusive statement on its effects.
If you are pregnant or trying to conceive we recommend seeking medical advice before deciding to incorporate any new food into their diet, especially whole food-supplements such as Moringa.
During breastfeeding, moringa leaf powder is perfectly safe to take and in fact has been scientifically proven to increase breast milk supply by up to 50%! This is because the leaves are a natural galactagogue, a substance that promotes or increases the flow of a mother’s milk. Learn more about the benefits of moringa when breastfeeding here.
Information has been mixed and there is confusion about the effects of different uses of the bark, seeds and roots which have been used to cause miscarriage. Note that the potential contraceptive properties of the bark, seeds, and root ARE NOT found in the Ch’ulel Moringa leaf powder.
Very little scientific data is present to address this topic. In contrast, the plant has been used for a millenia and is considered safe by its consumers globally. Indian researchers tried to emulate its contraceptive properties in rats in the late 1980’s. Many of their extracts were from the seeds and roots, however, one of their studies involved the leaves. Seven rats were given a high dose of special moringa leaf extract and it was found that it caused miscarriages. It’s important to note that the number of rats was small, and it is unclear whether similar effects occur in humans. Meanwhile, many people use the plant to aid their pregnancy, in fact, some even recommend it to increase chances of conception.

Moringa is one of the most nutrient dense superfoods on the planet, containing 5 vitamins & minerals at source or rich source level per 10g serving as well as protein, fibre and antioxidants.

Moringa oleifera has been in use for more than 2,000 years and is a very valued plant for a wide variety of applications. It has been revered for centuries in countries in Asia and Africa for both its healing and nutritive value.

A Moringa supplement is a 100% natural product made from the parts of the Moringa tree. People have been taking Moringa for hundreds of years as a staple food and have not reported any problem since then. However, we suggest you to consult with your Physician whether you can take these supplements along with other prescription medicines.
Moringa powder is available to buy all over the world, however, not all moringa powder is made equal and the quality and nutritional content can vary widely. As moringa is mostly grown in developing tropical and sub-tropical countries where infrastructure can be poor and resources limited, harvested leaves are often washed with unpure water which can contain bacteria and other microbes. When buying moringa, it is important to use an organic certified moringa brand to ensure the powder is free from any harmful substances.
All our moringa products are made from 100% organic, pure moringa leaves and every batch undergoes in-depth microbial analysis to guarantee the highest possible quality. We do not use any harmful pesticides and our products have no additives or preservatives.

What we call Moringa oleifera goes by over 200 hundred names abroad, which makes it a difficult plant to keep track of. It grows in tropical and sub-tropical climates, almost anywhere that stays above 70 degrees. So the plant has flown under the radar and hasn’t been produced commercially. However, Moringa is also used in many trade-secret formulas for supplements, and the oil is used in the same manner in high-end cosmetics.
Unlike most other superfoods, Ch’ulel Moringa is a 100% pure leaf powder which means it is easily recognised by the body and in turn, readily absorbed. Thanks to its impressive nutritional profile – It is a 100% natural and organic nutrient-dense leaf that is a rich source of protein, (including all 9 essential amino acids – unusual for a plant), iron, vitamin E and vitamin K.

No, you don’t. It is a completely safe and natural product, which contains ingredients your body will recognize for their nutritive value.

There are no known side effects to consuming moringa – however, as with all foods, everyone’s body responds differently. It is important to remember that moringa is simply a vegetable so in the same way people can feel bloated after eating brussel sprouts or might be allergic to carrots, you could experience symptoms (such as stomach upset or dizziness) after eating moringa especially when just starting out which can be a side effect of your body getting used to the nutrients and eliminating any toxins. Over time, these side effects should gradually disappear. We recommend starting with ¼ or ½ a teaspoon a day to see how your body reacts and increase your intake from there. Additionally, moringa has a spinachy earthy flavour that is easy to incorporate into your meals – think of it as a vegetable powder that can be added to pretty much anything!
If you are worried abut adding moringa powder to your diet, ask your doctor or medical practitioner for advice. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive or on medication, consult a doctor before use. Enjoy as part of a healthy, balanced diet and active lifestyle.
