EATING MORINGA SEEDS
This is a new activity. Many people are eating Moringa seeds and reporting many of the same benefits from the Moringa Leaf. It has not been studied so use caution. I have eaten Moringa seeds when needing to concentrate or memorize. It gives me mental clarity. I don't take any after 3pm because it is too energizing for me. Some reports have stated that they are toxic. This may be in larger quantities. It has also been noted that they are an aphrodisiac. I have not known that to be true but it is a common belief in India where this variety is native to. As with anything you use for your health, consult your health care practitioner and discontinue use if you have any adverse effects.
