Health Benefits of Moringa

Moringa is the common name for the Moringa Oleifera, also known as the “Miracle Tree” or “Drumstick Tree.” Moringa is a rich, natural source of nutritious elements including vitamins, iron, minerals, potassium, antioxidants and coenzymes.

Benefits of Moringa include:

  1. Complete Nutrition – The Moringa tree can provide nutritional support in areas of the World suffering drought and famine. The Moringa leaves contain more Vitamin C than an orange, more Vitamin A than a carrot, more iron than spinach, more potassium than a banana, even more calcium than milk. For these reasons, Moringa is becoming increasingly valuable in the elimination of malnutrition.
  1. Provides Nutritional Support For Nursing Mothers – Nursing mothers from India to East Africa have been chewing Moringa leaves for centuries to provide nutritional support while nursing. More modern mothers use 1-3 tablespoons of Moringa leaf powder to provide iron, Vitamins A, B, C, E, potassium, and many other important nutrients, most of which are then passed through the mother’s milk to the growing newborn.
  1. More Energy – The many nutritional elements outlined also support a healthy immune system and healthy metabolism. Additional benefits include balanced blood sugar and the ability of cells to work more efficiently and produce more energy. Moringa leaves reduce your risk of diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol. This is why Moringa is attracting attention, even in advanced countries without the need for critical nutritional support to battle famine and malnutrition.
  1. Faster Recovery – Aside from the many vitamins and minerals, Moringa is packed with antioxidants that effectively fight off unhealthy substances from the body. Many chronic disorders and cell damage, including aging skin are caused by free radicals which “steal” oxygen from healthy cells resulting in oxidation. The antioxidants provided by Moringa leaves or powder protect healthy cells by blocking the disruption cause by toxins and free radicals.
  1. Reduces Arsenic Toxicity – Heavy metals toxicity, including lead and arsenic, are growing problems in many Third World countries. Fish and rice absorb these metals which are passed to those who consume them. There is growing evidence that Moringa may bind with these toxins and help them pass through the body to be eliminated.

Moringa has caught the attention of supplement manufacturers who are conducting or funding research into additional health benefits including:

  • Improved eyesight.
  • Healthy brain function.
  • Healthier and stronger cell structure.
  • Increased metabolism and healthy weight loss.
  • Promotes natural balance in serum glucose and cholesterol.
  • Reduces wrinkles and the effects of aging.
  • Promotes healthy digestion.
  • Supports a healthy immune system.
  • Reduces inflammation and chronic inflammatory conditions.
