The story of moringa
Meet Mrs güpner
Mrs. Güpner has been visiting Africa for many years to build schools there and to support the local population. On her travels she got to know the Moringa tree and its amazing features. Some residents of the village in Kenya, who she visits regularly, helped her develop a balm that can be used for a variety of purposes. It helps to relieve itching and discomfort, to support wound healing or to regenerate affected and irritated skin. Back in Germany, Mrs. Güpner improved the recipe of the balm, until she thought it was time to offer this natural remedy for the market.
For thousands of years, the tree has been used as food, medicine and energy in all its parts - from the root, through the bark, the leaf, the flower and the seeds - in India. The ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians used Moringa before embarking on its triumphal procession along the equator from Asia to Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
In the last 20 years intensive studies have been carried out. It has been found that the Moringa is a tree that can optimize both all physical and mental functions, as well as its vital substances, there is everything we really need to cope with the demands and adversities of everyday life.
The composition of the ingredients of the Moringa tree is very concentrated and balanced. In addition to protein, vitamins A, C, E, B1 and B2, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, 18 amino acids, high-quality fatty acids, such as omega -3, -6, -9, high levels of chlorophyll and anti-inflammatory substances and many more.
Moringa is also used as a food, processed as a dietary supplement and the high-quality oil in the kitchen and cosmetics.
Together with our partners in Kenya and Mozambique, we harvest the leaves, dry them on site and then process them into our products in Germany.
The precious Moringa oil, which is processed in all our creams, we source from certified companies.
