Moringa Tree Root Helps Purify Water, Removes E. coli
- "The Moringa oleifera tree is native to Northern India, but common in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Known as a miracle tree, it gets its moniker from the many uses of all its parts. It’s antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and nutritious, and has been used to treat typhoid and fecal coliforms in water, while also serving a role in many traditional medicines. After two years of careful exploratory research and study, Opio and Morgan have discovered that the Moringa tree root powder can kill most E. coli bacteria, up to 87 per cent, in contaminated water." - Excerpt from University of Northern British Columbia.
