Moringa is native to Africa and South Asia. Fun fact; all the parts of the moringa tree – bark, pods, leaves, nuts, seeds, tubers, roots, and flowers – are edible.
The leaves are used fresh or dried and ground into powder, and are high in protein, calcium, iron, Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
2. Baobab fruit
This fruit provides nutrition to both humans and many other animals, from birds to honey bees.
Baobab fruit is particularly high in antioxidants, as well as fibre (10 times the fibre of apples), potassium, magnesium and iron.
The leaves from Kenkiliba shrub, native to the Sahel, are used to make an infusion tea that is touted as a digestive detoxifier and cure-all, common in Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Guinea and the Gambia.
Coconut is common to tropical coastlines everywhere. It’s unique fatty-acid combination promotes healthy brain function; protein-containing coconut milk aids the digestive system, is a natural antiviral, and boosts skin health.
