Moringa Olfeira grows anywhere in the Philippines, most of my neighbor have their own tree. It grows as high as a two floor house. It looks beautiful in the backyard or garden with it’s secret amazing nutrients. But don’t worry, you can buy it in Amazon. If you want a tree plant, a seed, or a dried leaves. It’s all available in Amazon.
Having your own malunggay tree at the backyard is my best bet. First, you get it fresh and it doesn’t need a lot of attention and care. Just water it everyday and it grows as tall as your house in a year, you will never run out of fresh leaves even if you get a basket a day! My father also makes malunggay juice for his everyday health drink. He created his own Malunggay and lemon juice. And claimed he felt better everyday because of the pure malunggay juice with a dash of lemon for flavor.
Second, you can try dried malunggay leaves. It has the same nutrients with the fresh picked.
