Malunggay or Moringa oleifera

Malunggay or Moringa is sometimes called referred to as horseradish tree or horseradish plant, although it’s a different species from the horseradish that Westerners know.
The leaves are popularly used in Filipino soups and broths especially Tinola. The leaves are said to increase lactation in nursing mothers. Filipinos like to say that malunggay is “the most nutritious plant in the world”  and has many uses like teas.  It is rich in vitamins A and C and iron.  A study recently found that malunggay increases sperm count in men.
