Moringa Oleifera is the most nutrient rich plant yet discovered. This humble plant has been making strides in less-developed societies for thousands of years, and significant nutritional research has been conducted since the 1970s. Moringa provides a rich and rare combination of nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties used for nutrition and healing.
In underdeveloped countries, health organizations and clinics distribute Moringa to infants, children, pregnant and lactating women. Moringa is Sometimes called “Mother’s Best Friend” and “Miracle Tree”. Since 1998, the World Health Organization has promoted Moringa as an alternative to imported food supplies to treat malnutrition.
In the last ten years, hundreds of research articles, theses, reports and patents have been published on Moringa. Newspapers, scientific journals, documentaries (Discovery Channel) feature Moringa more and more. The Church World Service recently organized the first ever Moringa Tree International Conference to educate about Moringa’s use as an indigenous resource for fighting hunger and malnutrition.
No, Moringa is one of few beneficial plants NOT genetically modified (GM). Today, alarmingly there are thousands of GM plants. Recent news reports confirm research brought to the media several years ago, that in animal studies a diet rich in GM corn fed to animals caused them to develop abnormalities to internal organs and changes to their blood. These studies raise fears that human health could be affected by eating GM food. In Dr. Monica G. Marcu's book, "Miracle Tree", (published by KOShealthpub.com), she outlines the current health concerns of GM corn and soy as the modern day health hazard, especially among infants, and Moringa is a superior replacement, unblemished by GM as it delivers supreme nutrition to all ages.
The most recent publication on Moringa Oleifera is by Dr. Monica Marcu, “Miracle Tree”, which is said to be the definitive reference. Early reviews call Marcu’s book the leading reference on Moringa as she takes her clinical and analytical laboratory experience and gives the health conscious reader understanding on a majority of Moringa’s wealth of nutrients. She also covers Moringa’s history, re-discovery, nutrients, benefits and traditional cures and modern uses. The information presented goes in-depth on the value of Moringa’s nutrients and amazing phytochemical compounds. For more info, visit the publisher’s website KOShealthpub.com.
When you take a delicate Moringa leaf and shade dry it – amazing things happen. The remarkable nutritional value of moringa is highly concentrated up to ten times or more than that of fresh Moringa. Many universities and independent research laboratory analyses have confirmed the higher nutritional values in the dried leaf powder. What’s more amazing is the gram for gram comparison of Moringa to common fruits and vegetables. The nutritional values of Moringa’s many vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll, and anti-aging compounds are higher than its own fresh leaves.
Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds work best when combined with other antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. Nature allows for a better efficacy when combined; a synergy of the compounds being much more effective than a single compound. Moringa contains the following antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics.
Antioxidants: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B (Choline), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B6, Alanine, Alpha-Carotene, Arginine, BetaCarotene, Beta-sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic Acid, Campesterol, Carotenoids, Chlorophyll, Chromium, Delta-5-Avenasterol, Delta-7-Avenasterol, Glutathione, Histidine, Indole Acetic Acid, Indoleacetonitrile, Kaempferal, Leucine, Lutein, Methionine, Myristic-Acid, Palmitic-Acid, Prolamine, Proline, Quercetin, Rutin, Selenium, Threonine, Tryptophan, Xanthins, Xanthophyll, Zeatin, Zeaxanthin, Zinc.
Anti-Inflammatory compounds: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Arginine, Beta-sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic Acid, Calcium, Chlorophyll, Copper, Cystine, Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9, Fiber, Glutathione, Histidine, Indole Acetic Acid, Indoleacetonitrile, Isoleucine, Kaempferal, Leucine, Magnesium, Oleic-Acid, Phenylalanine, Potassium, Quercetin, Rutin, Selenium, Stigmasterol, Sulfur, Tryptophan, Tyrosine, Zeatin, Zinc.
There are over 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds all naturally occurring in the Moringa plant.
The human body reacts differently to whole natural products and those that are synthetically produced. Many multivitamin and calcium supplements available in the market are made using synthetic ingredients. The human body absorbs only a little bit of the nutrients supplied through these means. Whereas the Moringa leaves and pods are a natural source of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are much more bio available. Bioavailability Of Whole Plant Minerals:
VITAMINS Vitamin A (Alpha & Beta-Carotene), B, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E, K, Folic Acid, Biotin and many more. MINERALS Calcium, Chloride, Chromium, Copper, Fluorine, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Molybdenum, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Selenium, Sulfur, Zinc AMINO ACIDS Moringa also contains all 8 essential amino acids Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine, Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Cystine, Glutamine, Glycine, Histidine, Proline, Serine, Tyrosine. OTHER NUTRIENTS Chlorophyll, Carotenoids, Cytokinins, Flavonoids, Omega (3,6,9) oils, Plant Sterols, Polyphenols, Lutein, Xanthins, Rutin and many more.
Moringa is a 100% natural product made from the leaves of the Moringa Tree. People in India have been taking Moringa for hundreds of years as a staple food without problems. We are not aware that any negative interactions have occurred. But again, please consult your doctor if you have health concerns.
Moringa contains Zeatin which has powerful anti-aging properties. No plant has a greater abundance of Zeatin than the Moringa plant. In fact, Moringa has several thousand times more Zeatin than any other known plant. Zeatin defends cells against free radical damage, protecting healthy cells from the effects of stress, helps the body replace dying cells more rapidly and strengthens living cells thereby slowing the aging process.
Moringa is a real Superfood as it is high in protein, low in fat , gluten -free , loaded with omega - 3s, bursting with antioxidants and overflowing with folate, fiber and phytonutrients. It also has higher nutritional density than conventional super food such as wheat grass, macha, spirulina. In addition, the Moringa tree has great potential for the future: a means in the fight against hunger and climate change , clean water and an alternative energy for countries in need
Moringa grows in tropical and subtropical regions and has not been grown commercially until just recently. The tree also has over 200 names in different countries. Another reason may be that there are many companies that do not manage to maintain the high nutritional value in the drying process.
Good for children, adults with a busy schedule, lactating moms, pregnant woman (please consult your doctor first) and older persons. Also is a good replacement to synthetic protein powder before and after exercise.
No known. As all leafy greens, Moringa has a blood thickening effect - talk to your doctor if you are on blood thinning medications.
