Native to India, the Moringa tree – also known as the “miracle tree” — sure packs a powerful nutritional punch. This potent super food is a natural source for over 90 vitamins and minerals and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a vast array of diseases including anemia, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and obesity just to name a few.
Boost Energy & Mental Well-being
Moringa normalizes the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which play key roles in memory and mood as well as how we respond to stimulus such as stress, pleasure and mental health.
Moringa has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol. In a recent study in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, its effects were comparable to those of the cholesterol-lowering drug simvastatin.
Moringa oleifera is rich in nearly 90 nutrients and nearly 50 antioxidants, including quercetin and cholorogenic acid. Try adding a scoop of Moringa powder to a green smoothie to turbocharge your antioxidant intake.
Promote Weight Loss
Moringa reduces inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes and proteins in the body, which can help prevent obesity. It’ also a great source of fiber, which helps curb appetites by making you feel fuller, longer.
Lower Blood Sugar
Moringa prevents spikes in blood sugar by slowing the rate in which your body absorbs food. The International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition revealed that adding 50 grams of Moringa leaves to a meal reduced the rise in blood sugar by 21% among diabetic patients.
