Fidel Castro’s Daily Moringa Regimen

In CNN’s April 4th website coverage of Fidel Castro’s recent public appearance, they note that, “Cuban state media Saturday released images of a rare public appearance by former leader Fidel Castro, who met with a group of Venezuelans who were on a solidarity mission to the island.”

The CNN story goes on to say that, “La Radio del Sur, a Venezuelan radio station that first reported Castro's appearance, said the leader met with the group for about 30 minutes and also talked to them about moringa, a plant with medicinal qualities that the former leader is cultivating at his home in Havana.”

It has long been known that the 88-year-old revolutionary icon has been eating moringa leaves as part of his daily health regimen. He wrote in 2012 that moringa, "originally from India, is the only plant that has every kind of amino acid.” He went on to provide advice on daily amounts to be consumed, and explained that, "samples of seeds from different varieties have been provided to the agricultural research institutes in our country.”
