Properties, benefits and usage
Despite the news about Moringa spread by media could seem exaggerated, most of them are true. They are extremely tenacious trees, called in some African areas “nebedies” which means “that never dies”, because they grow in poor spots, grow back after being cut and they are among the few trees which product fruits during the period of drought.
The Moringa oleifera is also useful for the first stage of the process of physical removal of sediments of non-potable water. It is a process already used in some areas of Sudan, by women when they collect water for the Nilo river.
They put a powder obtained by Moringa’s seeds in a small cloth bag with a string attached. Moving the bag in a circular way, they create a vortex in the bucket so that the fine particles and germs flocculate with the powder of the seeds of the tree, sedimenting of the bottom.
Obviously this is not yet potable water: it will need to be further sterilized, making it boil or filtering it with the sand or putting it in open light in a bottle for a few hours (a process also called “solarisation”.
