Moringa, likely the healthiest plant in existence
In January of 2013, Kwami Williams and Emily Cunningham found themselves working in rural Ghana by different paths. Emily was studying development economics at Harvard, frustrated by the disconnect between the information in her textbooks and realities in the developing world. Born and raised in Ghana, Kwami and his family immigrated to the US at the age of 8. By 2012, he was living the American Dream having graduated from MIT with a degree in aerospace engineering and starting a career at NASA when a mentor challenged him to return to his native Ghana.
It was here that the pair were introduced to the moringa tree. NGOs encouraged farmers to cultivate moringa for the nutritional benefits - gram for gram, the leaves of the tree contain more iron than spinach, more protein than yogurt, and more calcium than milk. But farmers didn’t have a way to earn a living cultivating moringa - no access to market.
So Kwami and Emily took the unused part of the tree - the seeds- back to their labs at MIT and figured out how to cold-press the moringa seeds into a nourishing oil that outperforms argan, jojoba, and shea. Together, they set about building True Moringa with the mission of doing wellness differently. "We believe that being healthy should be simple, affordable, and accessible to all."
