Out Of Place Ninja: That blender.. scares me a little lol. I thought my blender could rev up
pretty good. I may need to get me one of these as I like to powder rolled
Linda January: So, would washing the leaves then laying them out to dry before processing
be a good idea? or is it not necessary to wash the leaves?
Mika Lee: They always tasted like a vegetable to me, Filipino's cook it like a
vegetable mostly in soups. I actually eat it all the time as my wife is
Aaron Jensen: This is good info for me to know.. My future wife is a Srilankan and she
has a Moringa tree in her backyard. I've tried both cooked beans and the
leaves and it tastes delicious.
Henry PH: "Tinolang manok" with moringa looks and tastes very delicious. My mother
always cook it for us. However, I'm concerned about the cooking process.
The moringa along with the chicken are left to boil for a few minutes. Will
there still be nutrients left?
Russell Johnson: We have 4 Moringa trees that we grew from cuttings. They grow extremely
fast here in Southern California, 4 - 8 inches a week, once you put them in
the ground. We eat the freshly picked leaves and the pods all the time.
The leaves boiled in 1/2 water and 1/2 chicken stock makes a wonderful
green vegetable. We add onions, too.
If the leaves are very dark, that just means they had been on the tree a
long time. The new growth leaves are light green.
I think the lighter colored leaves taste better.
Moringa leaves freeze well too if you squeeze as much air as possible out
of the freezer bag. They have a long freezer life.

Holee Kun: Never knew maringa tree has that much nutrients and benefits, I grew up and
eat it all my life
The4directions: To sterilize it I would give it a soak in mms solution or give it a spray
down with colloidal silver. Won't using a powerful blender kill the enzymes
,as it does when making juice in a blender ? I would just pound it with a
fat wooden stick like they do in the 3rd world and then pass it though a

The leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree have no parallel in the plant
kingdom. The Moringa tree is the most nutritious in the world, with most of
its benefits stored in the small green leaves of this unassuming plant.
Known as the Tree of Life, it contains more than 90 nutrients including 40
powerful antioxidants. In fact, practically every part of the plant
contains important minerals and are a good source of protein, vitamins,
beta-carotene, amino acids, and various phenolics.
Moringa leaves are small, thick, and tear-drop shaped and grow rapidly as
the plant matures. The leaves are strong and firm and can be easily picked
from the tree’s branches.
It's leaf powder contains all eight essential amino acids required for
proper protein synthesis. It is rich in flavonoids, including Quercetin,
Kaempferol, Beta-Sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic acid, and Zeatin. Stacked full
of nutrients, anti-oxidants, and vital proteins, it is quite possibly the
most amazing botanical ever studied.
Here are just a few benefits to consuming Moringa:
Increases the body’s immune system
Provides nourishment to the brain and body
Decreases anxiety, depression, and sleep related disorders
Promotes cell structure of the body
Calms, moisturizes, and nourishes the skin
Promotes the normal functioning of the liver and kidney
Promotes a healthy circulatory system
Supports normal sugar levels
Aids in stabilizing diabetes
Aids in reducing inflammation and related conditions like arthritis
Madhusudan Sikri: Great! Just great! I am so happy to see that Moringa is gaining popularity.
I like the way that you are doing it at a personal level for home use. This
is also a great opportunity for setting up a small business to sell Moringa
powder in tea bags so that a person can spread the benefits of Moringa more
widely, as well as make a decent business out of it.
My company makes and sells bench top herbs drying, grinding and packaging
equipment and materials. We have as customers, over a thousand small
businesses all over the world (around 100 countries). I would like to share
with your viewers a video of small business equipment being used by our

iviewutoob: I found some Moringa leaves at my local 99 Ranch Market. It's labeled
Malangai as this is what the phillipines call them. I'm going to use these
in a salad.
Dara Dy: i don't have the hydrant machine, can i just dry it under the sun?
HealingMoringaTree: Thanks John great video!
InMyOpinion94: how about if i dry them using frying pan at low hit?
Florence Figueroa Belenario: I love moringa leaves, young long fruits and flowers. When Im young my
father used the leaves juice for my wound to stop the bleeding. But what I
really miss about it, is that the TINOLANG MANOK

for sharing with the world.
Mark Long: leave the freakin trees along! I don't care how high the tree has to grow.
You are a stupid man!!!!
Earth Soul Heart Art: Thank you very much. Can we do the same with green tea leaves? Can we
dehydrate under the sun or in the shade? If yes, what is the difference
please? Thanks again.
M BN: I guess we don't have to ask, "will it blend?".
Monch Estrella: some studies done on using the moringa bark, for alternative energy..
nothing has concrete has surfaced though
loveisnow2: Hi John, You said a lot about the dehydration process but not much about
the plants properties and benefits. I have never heard of it before and am
interested in its raw values. Thanks~ ha guess I can just google it.
blacken whiten: haha,,,big mouth.
Aldrich Lipata: Been growing moringa for more than 20 yrs now. All the techniques you see
here are relevant. So just absorb it folks! You're here to learn. You can
always ask but irrelevant speculations will never give you any of the
vitamins this wonder tree provides. Chill!
Dead Sea Moringa: Moringa's health properties make it one of the most nutritionally valuable
plants in the world!
Ingrid S: Hi, I am thinking about growing Moringa in my backyard, and I would like to
know if once I cut the tree like you show in your video, do I just keep
watering it and will grow leaves again, or do I plant one of the branches
and take out the original Tree.
Terry Floyd: "Uploaded on Nov 2, 2010
John from http://www.okraw.com shows you how to harvest and dry moringa
powder so it could be considered a raw food. Learn about the processing
techniques that the industry uses to process morniga. You will also learn
about interesting facts about moringa along the way."
FAFA TUWAD: its not a waste caue u can grow the stem you cut just put it to another soi
and it grows itsef;)
lothre: You can strip the leaves much easier if you dehydrate them while still on
the branches. Also, while you are dehydrating them on the branches, the
branches themselves are still supplying small amounts of nutrients to the
leaves that they would otherwise not be getting if you pull them off before
I Much: thanks so much for sharing!! i just wish those dehydrators or high power
blenders weren't as expensive!
carolianas L: I do agree with you, MsLaburn, that John's way of taking the dehydrated
leaves with his bare hands and putting it in a paperbag form who knows how
clean it was is a no-no. I like his dehydrator being able to keep the
leaves green in color. The simple way of airdrying it in the shade, at room
temperature and in a screened room(protect it from bugs and flies) is what
makes the leaves dark. This is the natural way of drying it and no
GixxxerKim: Do you think having powdered greens (spirulina, wheat grass, etc. reds
yellows blues) is better than having little to no veggies at all?
Spicky: He just wanted to highlight UV lighting but this is not expensive for a
small packaging company damm i even have it at home.
