Moringa is a true superfood. It is a phenomenon, with 92 nutrients and 46 antioxidants and can treat over 300 diseases. It is a humble plant, quite a chore to take off the branches but incredibly powerful.
There are no side effects and the leaves are turned into powder for pills and tea for a potent brew. They are great put in chicken soup with chayote or raw papaya boiled til soft.
Every 100 grams of moringa has more vitamin C than seven oranges, a lot of protein like twice the amount found in yogurt, 4 times more beta carotene than a carrot, 3 times more vitamin E than almonds, 4 times more calcium than milk, 3 times more potassium than banana and 3 times more iron than spinach. They are also high in B vitamins. The B vitamins reach over. 100% DV when the leaves are dried, vital vitamin family for normal body and brain function.
Taking the pure, powdered form in pills is more potent and just like anything naturally nutritious and antioxidant rich moringa can help prevent or reverse cancer in early stages.
I think the leaves are delicious and unique and can become a pesto or just be boiled with chicken or pork and other veggies. But also consider dried leaves or pure powders. It is real medicine! The numbers are shocking, way higher than fresh moringa.
Imagine, 10 times more beta carotene than carrots, 17 freakin times the calcium of milk, the vitamin C is the only vitamin that is lessened but it is so easy to get that supplement, it also has 15 times the potassium of banana, 25 times the iron of spinach, wow that sounds like the cure for anemia, and last but not the least, 9 times more protein than yogurt. Morinaga loves your body, you should love it back.
This feathery, antioxidant plant is one of those multi-purpose remedies that treat ulcer, fever, stimulates hair growth, stronger nails, better skin, improves alertness and mental clarity, blood sugar levels, is an anti-inflammatory, lowers cholesterol, safely and mildly suppresses appetite, improves muscle contractions, eases constipation, improves overall organ health, hikes up libido, is anti-tumor and anti-cancer.
Moringa contains both essential and non-essential amino acids, another major factor of its healing properties. Forget crappy diet pills that will shrivel you up.
