Moringa Oleifera - Sahajan Tree, India

Moringa or Murungai (Moringa oleifera) is a Moringaceae plant that is also known as Horse-radish tree or Drum-stick plant or Sahajan Tree. It is native to the sub-Himalayan region and is widely grown across the country. Seed pods and leaves are eaten as vegetables in tropical and subtropical countries. Murungai literally translates to "twisted pod" in Tamil. It is a tree that can be found all over the world, but is primarily found in India and Africa. The blooms of the tree have been utilised as an additive to fatty dishes in many countries because the antioxidants included in them help to extend the shelf life of the food.

The University of Eastern Finland conducted a 19-year study that showed how replacing 5% of animal meat protein with plant-based protein could help reduce the risk of T2D. The danger was lowered to 18%, and Moringa provides 25% plant protein, according to the findings.
