How does Kuli Kuli make an impact?
Kuli Kuli sells delicious moringa products in the US with moringa sourced from farmers that provide fair wages and women-led cooperatives around the world. We support women farming cooperatives to grow moringa, process it in a way that preserves the nutrients and use it to improve the health of their communities. By incentivizing these communities to use moringa and paying fair trade wages, Kuli Kuli is improving livelihoods and health.

Moringa FAQs

Can moringa cause an abortion?

Women who are pregnant should ask their doctors before deciding to make moringa a part of their regular diet. As of now, there has been very little research done on this topic. Women in the Bengali area of India have traditionally used the bark of the moringa tree to make a highly potent powder that causes uterine contractions. Bark is not normally used for cooking or for making powder. All of our Pure Moringa Vegetable Powder is made from dried, ground moringa leaves with no possibility of root contamination.

There was one study with rats, in which pregnant rats were administered 175 mg/kg of moringa leaf extract over the course of five days, which caused abortions. However, it is difficult to assess whether such concentrated doses of moringa would have the same effect on humans. Kuli Kuli does not sell a moringa extract, just the powdered moringa leaves. Just like any other new food, it is important for pregnant women to work closely with their doctors when determining whether or not to introduce moringa into their diets.

Is moringa a natural birth control?
Certain cultures have traditionally used the root of the moringa tree to prevent pregnancy. However, there is no conclusive research indicating that moringa leaves can be used as an effective form of birth control.
Can moringa can act as a laxative?
Like many other green vegetables, moringa is high in fiber. Our Pure Moringa Vegetable Powder has 3 grams of fiber in every serving (10 g, or about 1 tablespoon), which is about 10% of your daily value. Fiber is an important addition to everyone’s diet since it helps maintain blood sugar levels and regular digestion. However, eating too much fiber can lead to a laxative effect. For people who are new to moringa, or who are sensitive to high-fiber foods, we recommend starting off with a smaller serving of moringa (such as a teaspoon), and slowly building up your daily dose.
Does moringa always taste bitter?
Eaten by itself, moringa leaves can have a bitter flavor, similar to matcha or kale. That’s why moringa is best eaten when mixed with other foods, like our Moringa Superfood Bars or Moringa Green Energy Shots. Our Pure Moringa Vegetable Powder can also be added to a variety of savory and sweet dishes, including oatmeal, pesto, and stir frys. Even ice cream and cheesecake tastes great with moringa!

Is moringa unsustainable/unethical?
No. When grown and harvested correctly, moringa is one of the most ethical and sustainable crops in the world. It is drought-resistant, thrives in hot, tropical climates, can grow in poor soil, and replaces harvested leaves very quickly. Moringa’s nutrient-rich leaves are also great for fighting malnutrition. Kuli Kuli’s moringa comes from around the world, including countries like Haiti and Ghana, where we pay farmers fair wages and help educate the community about the nutritional benefits of moringa.

Can moringa cure cancer?
Studies have shown that moringa could have anticancer properties for certain types of cancer; however, there is no proof that moringa can cure cancer. More research is needed to fully understand the anticancer properties of moringa. One study showed that moringa leaf extract could be used to inhibit tumor growth for certain cancers. Other studies have looked at moringa’s effect on pancreatic cancer and breast and colorectal cancer, showing that moringa may be able to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.
Can moringa affect my white blood cell count or cause gum bleeding?
There has not been enough research done on moringa and white blood cell counts to make a conclusive statement on its effects. One study with rats showed that moringa could increase both red and white blood cell counts; however, more research is needed to fully understand moringa’s effect.
