The Benefits of Moringa

Moringa is one of the most incredible herbal remedies in the world. It has been in use for millennia as a cure for a wide range of chronic illnesses. Today, this amazing herbal cure can be bought in the form of leaf powder or oil. This makes it accessible to anyone who wants to take advantage of its medicinal properties.

The History

The tree is native to the sub-Himalayan regions of India, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It has been in use for at least 4,000 years, though its use may go back even farther in history. Through Asiatic trade routes, the oil reached Egypt and Greece. There, it entered widespread use as an early medicine. Today, the tree and its leaves continue to be used just as they were 2,000 years before the Common Era.

Nutritional Profile

Moringa is rich in many different kinds of nutrients. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The leaf contains 18 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids. A 10-gram serving contains about 2.7 grams of protein. This makes it a good protein supplement for those on a predominantly plant based diet. It contains substantial amount of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E and K, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These vitamins are essential for maintaining optimal health. The leaf powder makes for an excellent and all-natural vitamin supplement.

Health Benefits

Since ancient times, this plant has been used to treat chronic conditions, like heart disease and diabetes. Much of the ability to treat these conditions is due to its rich profile of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds both known to relieve oxidative stress on bodily systems. In addition, it may also have the ability to regulate both cholesterol and sugar levels in blood, consequently adding to its ability to combat chronic heart conditions. In recent studies, extracts of the leaf have even shown promise as a means of killing cancer cells.

Another interesting and unique characteristic of the plant is its potential ability to reduce the risk of arsenic toxicity. Studies conducted on mice have shown that symptoms of arsenic-specific heavy metal toxicity were reduced when used as treatment. Since some foods and water sources can be high in arsenic, this effect could be extremely beneficial. Current research has not yet demonstrated that the effect is the same in humans as in mice.

For all of these reasons and more, moringa leaf powder is a remarkably powerful herbal remedy and supplement. Interested in improving your health with all-natural herbal whole food sources? Add this to your shopping list!
