Moringa health benefits are numerous.
Packed with vitamins, all essential amino acids, plus oodles of minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus – Moringa powder is perfect to blend into your daily smoothie or sprinkle over your soup or salad for an supercharged injection of goodness.
But it's not until relatively recent times that we in the West have caught on with over 250 clinical trials being carried out exploring its incredible skin, energy and health giving properties.
The leaves are the most nutritious part of the Moringa plant, being a significant source of;

Moringa Health Benefits
Powerful Antioxidant Activity
According to numerous clinical trials, Moringa leaf powder contains a staggering 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds and with additional macro minerals, trace minerals and phytonutrients, the total amount of goodness adds up to a whopping 92 nutrients, which is pretty impressive, making it one of the best natural nutritional supplements ever discovered.
It also contains high concentrations of essential nutrients such as dietary fibre, iodine, lutein, zinc, selenium, zeatin and beta-carotene. The list just goes on and on! And all these nutrients are natural and bio-available so they will be readily absorbed into your body, unlike a lot of the multi-vitamins pills on the market that just use synthetic ingredients which basically equates to expensive urine.
All Essential Amino Acids
Our Moringa leaf powder contains all the essential amino acids required by your body. The human body manufactures 11 amino acids by itself. The remaining 9 amino acids are known as the essential amino acids which should be provided by your everyday diet and our Moringa powder contains all of them making it a full protein. This is very rare in the plant world. Protein is vitally important because it helps to build and maintain healthy muscle, cartilage, bones and skin and Moringa's protein content rivals that of meat, making it an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and vegans.
One serving of Moringa powder in your smoothie provides you with healthy doses of calcium and magnesium. These two trace minerals work together in synergy so you get even more out of them; whilst calcium is needed to build strong bones and teeth, we also need magnesium to help us absorb it. Since Moringa powder contains abundant quantities of both, it is especially good for strong, healthy bones and teeth.
Glowing Skin Health
Due to its trace mineral content and full range of amino acids, Moringa is fantastic for nourishing the skin. Indeed, more and more cosmetic companies such as Clarins and Body Shop are starting to include Moringa extracts in their products. And many magazines including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Cosmopolitan have lauded the amazing skin benefits of Moringa.
Boost Immune Health
We all feel a little run down now and again and when we do we are susceptible to illnesses and infections. But with Moringa leaf powder you can easily top up with large amounts of iron, vitamin A, zinc and vitamin B6 which help the formation of normal red blood cells and contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.
Because Moringa is classed as a full protein it is good for building muscle mass and with its large amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium it also contributes to normal muscle function.
There are many touted superfoods such as goji berries, blueberries, acai and pomegranates that are great for their anti aging properties but the Moringa plant tops them all when it comes to its antioxidant activity. In fact, it has 6 times more anti-oxidant activity that goji berries. Therefore it is far better in protecting cells from oxidative stress to help battle against ageing.
I could go on and on but the health and beauty benefits of introducing moringa leaf powder into your diet are almost too many to count!
