Pure Premium Moringa Powder - Organic
Organic Moringa Powder: One of the Most Nutritious Natural Foods in the World
A food and medicinal staple used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic traditions for its amazing and nutritious properties, Moringa is a medicinal plant and packed with healthy vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
Traditionally, the leaves of the Moringa tree easily replace vegetables such as spinach and were often added to salads and favored recipes. With many versatile uses, Moringa powder is frequently brewed and enjoyed as tea, often added to yogurts and smoothies, and regularly used in recipes to boost nutrition levels.
Health Benefits of Moringa
Moringa leaves are highly nutritious and rich in vitamins D, K, A, C, B6, manganese, magnesium, lysine, riboflavin, and calcium, thiamin, potassium, iron, protein, and niacin. Ounce for ounce, Moringa contains seven times the Vitamin C found in oranges, four times the beta carotene of carrots, three times the iron of spinach, four times as much calcium as milk, three times the potassium of bananas, and more fiber than oats. Moringa also contains all 8 essential amino acids rich in flavonoids, including quercetin, kaempferol, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid zeatin.
Moringa also has a wide range of commercial and home cooking uses as it is used to fortify pasta, pastries, cereals, meats, sauces, dips, candies, and wines. Additionally, the powdered dry leaves make a convenient and powerful health supplement when sprinkled on foods.
The healthiest, most ideal survival food?
Moringa is more than just great nutrition. It’s an outstanding and unique survival food. Not only because of its high protein content but because of all its other vital nutrition. One of the problems with most survival foods today is they are very high carbohydrates with limited protein and almost no essential nutrients. That’s not Moringa. Moringa is possibly the best survival food in existence because it's high in essential amino acids and fatty acids and an extremely high nutritious food with a very stable shelf life. And because Moringa leaf powder does not spoil, this truly makes an excellent long-term survival food.
Moringa the Miracle Tree
Moringa is referred to as the "Miracle Tree" because all parts of the plant are edible and healthy, including the leaves, Moringa oil, and Moringa seeds, which may provide health benefits. The Moringa plant and leaves can also thrive in tough climates and poor soil. Its combination of high nutrition, sustainability, and hardiness has caused moringa to be promoted widely in Africa to help fight hunger and malnutrition.
Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) is the most common type of tree among 13 hearty tropical or arid weather species growing naturally in India and South Africa. One of the fastest-growing biomasses on earth, if not pruned, the tree will grow as fast as a foot per month. Leaves can be harvested every 30-45 days throughout the year, solely providing all the amino acids and omega fats necessary for life.
The World Vegetable Center in Taiwan identified Moringa leaves as the vegetable with the highest nutritional content among 120 types of food species studied.
Marina is a small size tree growing 18 to 35 feet in height. It is cultivated all over the world due to its multiple utilities. Every part of Moringa is used for certain nutritional and/or medicinal purposes. Containing over 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants, non-GMO Moringa (Moringa Oleifera) is one of nature's most nutritious foods. Ideal for helping our bodies maintain optimum health and balance.
