“Therefore, Moringa leaves are well consumed for health. Especially to keep the immune from viruses,” said Dr. Ferihana, a family health expert, as quoted from the Republika page.
How to eat is also easy. Moringa leaves can be eaten raw, and can also be cooked into vegetable menus such as vegetable soup. It tastes good too. It’s just that when cooking this leaf should not involve oil.
“But do not add oil to the Moringa leaves soup, so the bitterness does not come out,” said Dr. Hannah.
