Health Benefits of Drumstick flowers:

Drumstick, as everyone knows is also referred to as moringa oleifera or even horseradish tree. It’s really a ‘yard stick’ for health, as it is known to be very therapeutic for the human health in one way or another. This particular veggie offers all type of nutritional advantages and in addition cures numerous health conditions.
Flower juice improves the quality and flow of mothers’ milk when breast- feeding.
Flower juice is useful for urinary problems as it encourages urination.
In Haiti, villagers boil Moringa flowers in water and drink the tea as a powerful cold remedy.
Furthermore, its greens (leaves) are one of the finest sources of minerals like calcium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, selenium, and magnesium. Iron alleviates anemia. Calcium is required for bone mineralization. Zinc plays a vital role in hair-growth, spermatogenesis, and skin health. They are packed with vitamins A, B, C and other nutrients. The flowers are  the very same qualities as the leaves do.

Our ancestors were well known about the health and medicinal properties of entire parts of the Moringa tree and habituated their generation to use in regular intake of our daily food. They taught how to cook the drumstick tastefully and feed the children and passed the traditional method of cooking veggies without wasting their nutritional contents. I always wonder about their scientific knowledge from the ancient period. How did they learn?
In this page,  we are going to use the floral part of Moringa or drumstick tree. The cooking of the leaves is more time consuming and the cooked leaves if consumed more it will discomfort the stomach and cause several disturbances to our body health. Instead,  we will cook the blossom of drumstick tree easily and substitute the nutritional benefits of leaves.  The flowers have the same nutritional qualities as the other parts like pods and leaves do.
