Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
The leaves of the moringa oleifera tree, native to the Himalayan mountains in northwestern India, are extremely nutrient-dense. They contain almost twice as much iron as spinach and are loaded with tons of other vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, and potassium, as well as powerful antioxidants. You can take it as a supplement, or try moringa oleifera tea, a great alternative to caffeinated beverages. Available at health food stores.
