Moringa Oleifera or Muringa, commonly just called "Moringa" is known for all its nutritional benefits. But, what are they? Well, the quick answer is that has more nutritional compounds than any other single food source on the planet. It has 92 nutritional components and the next closest only has 28. That should speak volumes as to how packed it is with nutrients. But, does it have a lot of different nutrients, but just not very many of each? HARDLY! Here are some of the nutritional comparisons made between Moringa Powder and other foods:
Moringa as compared to:
- Carrots: Moringa has 10 x's the Vitamin A
- Oranges: Moringa has 1/2 the Vitamin C
- Milk: Moringa has 17 x's the Calcium
- Bananas: Moringa has 15 x's the Potassium
- Spinach: Moringa has 25 x's the Iron
- Yogurt: Moringa has 9 x's the Protein
- Almonds: Moringa has 12 x's the Vitamin E
So, as you can see, what Moringa has, it has a lot of!
Keeping in mind that the next closest food source only has 28 nutritional compounds, know that Moringa has 46 compounds just in the count of Antioxidants!
So, what does all this lead to, in terms of benefits of moringa?
Well, the first most obvious one is that of nutrition and its ability to prevent malnutrition. Also, other nutritional conditions, such as anemia are affected by moringa. It grows quickly and easily, in diverse soils and climates and so quite a bit can be grown to help nourish people all around the world. Diabetes and Diarrhea are both affected by Moringa.
But, also, it has 36 anti-inflammatory compounds within the plant. So, when eaten, it can help with arthritis, joint pain, and swelling of all sorts throughout the body. It helps asthma, headaches, high blood pressure....and so much more.
It helps detox and cleanse the body. It kills and prevents infection. So, conditions like kidney stones, ulcers of the stomach and/or intestines, acne, wounds and immunity levels of the body are beneficially affected.
Things like your concentration or mood are both beneficially affected, which are both huge benefits of Moringa. But, also cancerous cell growth is affected. Moringa has been used for centuries to prevent cancerous cell growth. The body's immunity system is strengthened and antioxidants are travelling wildly throughout the body.
Literally, for centuries, Moringa has been used throughout Africa and Asia as a nutritional supplement that is very easy on the body. But, the nutritional levels packed into it have helped people keep their immunities strong and to fight off disease and illness. The word of Moringa is spreading quickly through the world and specifically North America and Europe. One of our business partners has metastatic colon cancer and he takes it daily. It is a big deal to be able to use natural elements rather than pills from pharmaceutical companies to maintain your health.
