Moringa Oleifera Tree

Image
I eat 1 – 3 moringa seeds everyday.

Moringa seeds contain a good amount of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, as well as iron. Actually moringa seeds has more amount of vitamin compared with various food that is claimed a prime source of them such as oranges, carrots, and milk. These vitamins provide a great benefits for us. It is able to be eaten as supplement substitute, as it is really full of nutrient and completely natural. It is also able to make your minor injuries like bruises, cut, or even burns heal faster because of the nutrients it has.

A seed extract from the Moringa Oleifera tree could provide a natural and inexpensive solution for water purification. Through a collaborative research project between Uppsala University, Institut Laue-Langevin in France and the NIST Center for Neutron Research in the USA has optimized the process to make the seed extract even better at removing particulates from water. The new research gives improved insight and could now be advanced for use in larger-scale water treatment plants.

“Yoga on the beach. Pregnancy yoga is awesome for expectant mothers as it encourages breathing, stretching and connecting with baby. Mind you I wouldn’t recommend the bottom right pose for beginner yoga moms, I’ll be posting more pics for you. Top right pose is great for connecting with your breath, heartbeat and baby. I’m hoping these and many other hip opening poses will help in a smooth delivery…I’ll keep you updated” – @don_dia 

Explore The World

When I went to visit California one thing I did love was the beach. We drove down to Santa Monica  just to see the water before we traveled cross country. That was one two day journey I will think twice about doing over. Returning to California is definitely on my yearly list of things I should just do again.  It seemed as if California had a little bit of flavor from each state  of the country. That could be because it takes up the whole west coast of the US.  As I patiently wait for my passport, Im deciding where to go next.

“One of the oldest and most picturesque part of the scenic drive on California Highway 1 is the Central Coast. This area spans from Pacifica, which is just south of San Francisco to the southern end of Big Sur. Get a fun rental car and get on the scenic Highway 1 that you will love to drive. This is the best way to experience California Coast travel.” – For more great tips on places to travel check out the site here

Hemp Is in!

WASHINGTON — Farm legislation breezing through Congress could make northern Colorado the nation’s leader in the cultivation, study and use of industrial hemp.

The farm bill provision authored by Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., and Reps. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., and Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., would allow colleges, universities and state agriculture agencies to grow and do research on the crop without being penalized by the federal government.
