Moringa oleifera is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Moringa, which is the only genus in the family "Moringaceae". Common English names include: moringa, drumstick tree, horseradish tree, ben oil or benzoil tree (referring to the oil which is derived from the seeds). It is fast-growing, drought-resistant tree and native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in north-western India. It is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas and its young seed pods and leaves are used as vegetables.
Many parts of moringa are edible, including : the immature seed pods, leaves, mature seeds, oil pressed from the seeds and the flowers. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant, containing B vitamins, Vitamin C, provitamin A as beta-carotene, Vitamin K, Manganese, and protein, among other nutrients. The immature seed pods, called "drumsticks", are commonly consumed in South Asia. They contain vitamin C, dietary fibre, Potassium, Magnesium, and Manganese. Sometimes removed from more mature pods, the seeds are eaten like peas or roasted like nuts, they contain Vitamin C, B vitamins and dietary minerals. Mature seeds yield 38–40% of edible oil called Ben oil from its high concentration of Behenic acid. The refined oil is clear, odorless and resists rancidity. The roots are shredded and used as a condiment with sharp flavour, this is as a result of their polyphenol content.

Betaine (Trimethylglycine (TMG))
Betaine is a naturally-occurring amino acid, found in plants and in beetroot. Betaine is created by choline, in combination with the amino acid glycine.
Nitrate is an inorganic compound composed of nitrogen and oxygen, found naturally in soil and water. The nitrate in our diet comes from both food and drinking water, however the highest levels of dietary nitrate are found in vegetables.
