Jamaica’s newest discovered magic tree taking over from guinea hen weed!
Now the Jamaican guinea hen weed, when discovered, took the world by storm treating stubborn ills and sicknesses chiefly cancer and purifying both the bronchial and the urinary tract. The moringa tree commonly called ‘moringa’, or ‘drumstick tree’, is even more far reaching and impacting as a ‘miracle tree’ having far more uses.
It’s been around a long time, but only recently did a great number of Jamaicans discover a new appreciation for the tree/plant literally flocking any sign for it’s long down growing pods mostly to retrieve the seeds. It is potent however in every aspect and element.
The most popular of the moringa trees is the moringa oleifera. Moringa, growing rapidly across Jamaica, is considered to be firstly an effective weapon against malnutrition. Moringa is potent as a medicine known to cure at least 300 ills, at least in India where it originated.

REGARDING PURCHASE OF/ACCESS to herbs grown in Jamaica:
You will need to secure them directly from Jamaica. At times, there are restrictions at country borders worldwide, on the import/export of herbs, so checks are a must. We however have had persons who report they successfully brought the herbs back home on their person. Acquiring herbs or byproducts from a member of our team attracts a fee.
