What makes Moringa Special?
Moringa is a Super Food
Many foods contain many nutrients, but few match the Moringa for its range of nutrients. It is classified as a “Super Food”, a label reserved for foods with exceptional nutritional value for humans. Being so rich in nutrients makes it the ideal food supplement. This is important, Moringa is a food, taken in a supplement form to provide nutrients that we no longer get from many commercial foods.
Often soil is so depleted that one potato today has 20% of the nutritional value it would have had 50 years ago in the same patch of soil -but do you want to eat 5 potatoes to be well fed? The leaf powder is a food-state source of nutrients -meaning your body recognizes the natural nutrients for what they are. This means Moringa nutrients have a high bio-availability, that is, the body recognizes and uses the nutrients.
The leaves of the Moringa Oleifera tree are dried and powdered to create Moringa Leaf Powder. This powder is classified a food supplement because it is taken to add nutrients to food. As one of the most nutrient-rich plants it is classified as a super food. It is “NEW” to most people in the Western world, but an ancient source of nutrition, medicine and other benefits in countries around the tropics and the Middle-East and Africa.
Looking at statistics, health remains a challenge in Africa -because disease is so prevalent. While this may seem obvious, the solution is not considered for the same reason: People need to eat correctly to have strong bodies capable of maintaining health. With cheaper and self-sustainable preventative nutrition, more expensive and reactive allopathic care becomes less necessary. The benefits of this “super plant” have been embraced as one of nature’s most powerful sources of nutrients to support healthy living in the India, Africa and South America for more than 2,000 years.
