They say once you’ve had it, you can’t live without it…get your mind out of the gutter, I’m talking about the superfood of 2015…Moringa!
Moringa isn’t a vegetable, it isn’t a seed, it’s a tree and “Moringa has more nutrition in the leaf than any other known plant.”
Known as “The Tree of Life”, Moringa offers an undeniably high nutritional value with over 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants and minerals, more iron than spinach, more potassium than bananas, more vitamin B12 than steak, more vitamin A than eggs, and more calcium than milk!
You can use it as a leafy source of protein as it is about 25 percent protein with all 9 essential amino acids and 18 out of the 20 amino acids. Moringa offers a plethora of anti-oxidants that work together in your body to prevent cancer and disease.
What makes Moringa so unique is the vast variety and deep concentration of nutrients – once you get used to using it, you can’t live without it!
Moringa can be used to:
- Boost immunity
- Anti-inflammatory benefit
- Treat topical and internal infections
- Lower blood pressure
- Balance thyroid
- Alleviate stress with adaptogenic properties
- Fight fatigue
- Improve/promote digestive health
- Increase libido
- Rejuvenate by increasing resistance to trauma, anxiety, and fatigue
- Detoxify and protect the liver
- Stimulate metabolism
- Support healthy blood sugar levels
- Support strong and supple skin cells, nails, and hair via cellular regeneration
All parts of the tree from the roots to the stem, to the flowers to the pod are edible. For most, the easiest way to source is in powdered form. I recommend the powdered supplement created from the leaves of the tree and for highest quality, I suggest Organic India powder and capsules or Organic Veda capsules.
