On the main Highway, 307, that runs from Chetumal to Felipe Carillo Puerto, and right before the turn off from Chetumal to Mahahual, is DelCafetal Moringa Farm. The farm is owned and operated by Carlos I. Morelos, a local farmer.

Moringa, native to parts of Africa and Asia, is the sole genus in the flowering plant family Moringaceae. The name is derived from the Tamil word Murungai. It contains 13 species from tropical and subtropical climates that range in size from tiny herbs to massive trees.

The most widely cultivated species is Moringa oleifera, a multipurpose tree native to the foothills of the Himalayas in northwestern India and cultivated throughout the tropics.
Moringa is a sun and heat-loving plant, and thus does not tolerate freeze or frost. Moringa is particularly suitable for dry regions, as it can be grown using rainwater without expensive irrigation techniques.
For centuries Moringa seeds have been used to filter water, even the name by which it is known in the Nile Valley to Rauwaq Shagara means ” tree that purifies .” It even appears in Genesis in the Bible. It also is widely used in cosmetics throughout the world.
Moringa grows quickly in many types of environments.
Native to tropical forests of northeastern India and introduced to tropical countries, including Mexico , the Moringa tree has accompanied ancestrally diverse populations that use a grinding leaves to supplement with vitamins and protein milk that children drink .
The leaves of the tree Moringa provide protein , vitamins and potassium, and their seeds are efficient to clean water. The fruit of Moringa , a green and fibrous sheath can also be consumed directly , while its ground seeds contain oleic oil of high quality, comparable to olive oil . In various communities in Africa , Moringa is a known food supplement , while in Western countries its products are sold through exaggerated form of capsules, supplements and drinks, as a supplement that alleviates almost all physical ills. Much of the plant is edible by humans or by farm animals. The leaves are rich in protein, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C and minerals. 100g of fresh Moringa leaves have 8.3 g protein, 434 mg calcium, 404 mg potassium, 738 μg vitamin A, and 164 mg vitamin C.
Feeding the high protein leaves to cattle has been shown to increase weight gain by up to 32% and milk production by 43 to 65%. The seeds contain 30 to 40% oil that is high in oleic acid.
Mr. Morelos told me he noticed the change in his cattle after he started feeding Moringa to them, after he read and heard about Moringa being used for malnutrition in Africa and other developing countries, and became convinced about Moringa wellness. He also told me that there is no pollution here in Quintana Roo and Costa Maya, Mexico, so he gets the best Moringa quality in his trees. The soil, water, PH content, temperature, and weather conditions all make for perfect Moringa quality.
The moringa tree is grown mainly in semiarid, tropical, and subtropical areas, It grows best in dry sandy soil and tolerates poor soil, including coastal areas. Moringa is a sun and heat-loving plant, and thus does not tolerate freeze or frost, which makes Costa Maya perfect for his farm and operation. He told me his plants flower three times a year.
Moringa contains nine antioxidants that no other plant has. Mr. Morelos told me after he noticed the change in his cattle, he started taking Moringa and his health improved so much he can now walk without a cane, and he can feel the difference in his body. He also showed me information from the USDA that shows that Moringa has 4 times as much calcium as a glass of milk, 3 times as much iron as spinach, 7 times as much Vitamin C as an orange, and other vitamins, amino acids, fiber, and minerals.
He also informed me that Moringa has been shown to help people with depression, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, digestive symptoms, asthma, stomach problems, and a wide range of other medical problems. Moringa also is great for diabetics to help control sugar in the blood, and also help control cholesterol and prevent obesity. Moringa also is used in many places to help cure colon and other forms of cancer.
Mr. Morelos explainig the benefits and advantages of taking Moringa supplements.
