What are the Organic Moringa with Organic Turmeric benefits:
An active compound within turmeric is Curcumin “Curcumin is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent,” said Professor Manohar Garg, director of the nutraceuticals research program at the University of Newcastle.

Because inflammation is linked to a range of chronic conditions and diseases, among them arthritis, Alzheimer’s and heart disease, researchers argue Curcumin could help reduce the risk of those diseases by limiting inflammation in the body……

Moringa is full of healthy micro-nutrients, the many studies and proofs are an example of this.

The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

We researched many years how to dry Moringa leaves, now we know more…

We have ever started drying leaves outside because we didn’t know better ….

Then from washing machine dryers to gas dryers, layer dryers to automated dry machines with temperature, air and moisture control. We have learned a lot to where we are now and we learn every day. There is only one way, testing, testing and testing until you have achieved the desired result …. but test on which?

Customers like long shelf life, beautiful green color leaves (powder), tasty taste and high nutritional value for a reasonable price.

What does the customer want or demands?
You can test for long shelf life, you can test for nutritional value, you can test on beautiful color, taste or test on a nice average …

There have been several studies on the drying of Moringa leaves, which we are all very pleased with, because there are lots of things to learn, but there should be more, we can use so much information.
But you have to do it yourself, self-learning and self-knowledge and exploit its capabilities and optimize, only then are you able to each specific customer requirement.

So we start testing with different drying machines, different times, different temperatures, constant humidity measurement, nutritional value, taste, color, shelf life and cost price of any final product.

This is your Moringa end product.

Moringa against Malaria

Moringa Oleifera against Malaria

Moringa Oleifer a against Malaria

Study indicates that the phytochemicals derived from Moringa Oleifera seeds extracts are effective anti-mosquito agents.

Moringa Oleifera against Malaria, dengue is an important human viral disease transmitted by the yellow fever mosquito, is a mosquito that can spread dengue fever. 2-5 billion people living in tropical and subtropical countries, there are no specific antiviral drugs to treat it and no vaccines to prevent it. Or 3900 million people, in 128 countries, are at risk of infection with dengue viruses.
Symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, jaundice, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue and more serious.

Studies, reported in the 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2016 that threatening diseases by malaria, yellow fever and dengue can be protected by the use of Moringa Oleifera.

2009 and 2011 they investigated the larvicidal effect of Moringa seed extract. The researchers found that this extract was toxic to the larvae of the yellow fever mosquito, an insect that spreads a number of diseases. On the other hand it was found that the extract was harmless to rats. The authors conclude that the seeds and their extract could be used in mosquito control programs. According to Michael Lea (Jal Mandir Technology Clearinghouse) in an e-conference organized by USAID, quote: “Moringa oil on a water tank will help kill mosquito larvae and thus reduce the threat of malaria and other deadly insect-borne diseases.”

Neem protect Moringa leaves and Environment

The Neem tree is excellent to use as Biopesticide for farming and protect Moringa leaves but has more benefits…..

The Neem tree is very beneficial for the safeguard of the environment against pollution. And stops worms, insects, butterflies, grasshoppers etc from eating the harvest as Moringa leaves (they know this is healthy diet) without destroying everything with chemicals.

  • Scientific names: Azadirachta indica.
    Family: Meliaceae
    Common names: Neem, margosa, nim, nimba, nimbatiktam , Arishtha, PraNeem.
    In Khmer : Sdau, Sdov or Sdaw.

The Neem tree is growing everywhere in Cambodia, easy to grow also by drought. I’m still wondering that so less farmers using it. Neem also helps in restoring and maintaining soil fertility which makes it highly suitable in agro-forestry. The unbelievable bad smell, the foul odor and bitterness having fungicidal, insecticidal and nematicidal properties of this leaf makes sure the insect’s don’t like to eat your harvest or the Moringa leaves.

Neem extracts have been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use on food crops. It has been proven in various research studies  that Neem is non-toxic to birds, beneficial insects or humans and protects crops from over 200 of the most costly pests.
