What is moringa and what can it do for YOU?

You might not yet be familiar with this new superfood, but moringa is gaining popularity quickly as it is known to have many health benefits.  But what exactly is moringa and how can it help your overall health and well-being?

Moringa is a small tree that grows in India, Pakistan, and Nepal.  It has been used for centuries to treat ailments such as heart disease, anemia, arthritis, liver disease, skin, and digestive disorders among other illnesses. It is known to be a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent and is also highly nutritious.

It is available in several forms: a leaf powder supplement, pods, roots, flowers, seeds, bark and you can also eat the fruit as well.  Nutritionally, it is high in vitamins A, C, and E. It also contains high amounts of calcium, potassium, amino acids, and protein. Particularly great for skin, moringa fights free radicals because of the high concentration of antioxidants.

As moringa fights inflammation, it helps to stave off diabetes, respiratory problems, cardiovascular disease, and obesity, as well as supports overall brain health.  In fact, patients who have Alzheimer’s disease have shown positive results after taking moringa. Because it helps to stabilize serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, it can help with depression and psychosis, too!

This superfood also helps to protect your liver against oxidation and toxicity. If taken in larger quantities it can even act as a laxative to aid in digestion.
