Moringa is a medicinal plant whose curative properties have been known for centuries. A tree native to the sub-Himalayan areas of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, moringa is used as a treatment for “tired blood” (anemia); arthritis and other joint pain (rheumatism); asthma; cancer; constipation; diabetes; diarrhea; epilepsy; stomach pain; stomach and intestinal ulcers; intestinal spasms; headache; heart problems; high blood pressure; kidney stones; fluid retention; thyroid disorders; and bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections.
Until recently this tea was unknown in Panama, but entrepreneur Pablo Sanchez, owner and distributor of Moringa Organic Panama, will offer a free presentation and samples of this product at Casa Sucre Coffeehouse in Casco Antiguo on Saturday, June 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and will also discuss its health benefits.
The moringa tree is rich in vitamins and minerals and is used as a natural remedy for more than 300 diseases. Its leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root are used to make medicine. Oil from the seeds is used in foods, perfume, hair care products as well as machine lubricant.
The Casa Sucre Coffeehouse is located at Calle 8 y Ave B in Casco Antiguo. The 1,000 square-foot venue serves coffees exclusively from the Boquete region of Panama.
