Moringa health and economic benefits

Rachel Cernasky’s article looks at "superfood" fads and asks whether they can have benefits, especially to the people who live where they are being produced. Moringa, with its nutrient and nutraceutical profile, might be such a novel plant. And it’s possible that its sale to rich countries may provide a useful cash supplement to tropical communities where it is grown. Cernasky interviewed me for the article, and she reproduces my rule of thumb for the validity of a moringa product: the closer it is to real, fresh, unadulterated, unprocessed moringa leaves, the better.
