Moringa - Why do you need this super food supplement?
Ever heard of Moringa? Rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and high in Calcium, Potassium, Iron and Protein -
Moringa is a miracle food and a cost effective way to get your daily supply of essential nutrients. It’s a true natural multivitamin, which is the best kind, and boasts a powerhouse of free-radical-fighting, anti-inflammatory, and healing compounds that benefit your head, heart, skin, and more.
Native to Asia, the Moringa Tree, or Moringa Oleifera to use its scientific name, is one of the most nutrient-rich plants in the world and labelled as a “miracle tree”. While still new to the West, this small tree has been highly valued for centuries in southeast Asia, where it is used in everything from fiber, rope, and dye, to fertilizer, spices and medicines.
In fact, all parts of this plant are useful and edible — hence the name “miracle tree.” Other names it goes by include, horseradish tree, ben tree, and drumstick tree. Whatever you call it, moringa seeds, flowers, fruits, roots and leaves are all used for food, and each packed with phytonutrients, proteins and minerals. But the most potent nutritional content and healing properties come from the moringa leaves. The leaves are edible raw and cooked, although in South Africa you’re most likely to find them dried, ground and sold as a powder or as supplements.
The Moringa leaf is a rich source of protein containing all 8 essential amino acids, as well as omega 3, 6 and 9. Moringa is rich in vitamins A to K, providing your body with 46 powerful antioxidants. And gets its ‘superfood’ status from a rich nutrition profile, abundant with minerals and trace elements such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc, and providing more nutrients per gram than many other plant species or other superfoods like acai and green tea.
The nutrient density of moringa varies by growing conditions and preparation, but many studies rank moringa with more vitamin C than oranges, more vitamin A than carrots, more potassium than bananas, and more iron than spinach. But incredible nutrient density isn’t the last of moringa’s claims to superfood fame. Its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant compounds help protect your performance and strengthen your body against a wide variety of diseases.
When it comes to moringa benefits, there are almost too many to count! The spectrum of nutrition in Moringa will nourish your body holistically and synergistically and its benefits including a stronger immune system, better sleep, decreased anxiety, better blood sugar control, healthy cell functioning as well as providing brain and body food for vitality.
