Is Moringa Safe? Read this before consuming
Have you recently heard about Moringa? This new superfood is kicking matcha and spirulina to the curb.
However, when trying something new it’s important to be well informed before putting strange new foods into your body.
Moringa Tree in Florida
There is tons of information on the web about Moringa but here are a few things you should absolutely know.
Moringa is a tree native to the Himalayas that grows in tropical regions. These trees sprout quite quickly and grow leaves about the size of a dime (as you can see in the picture above). While these leaves can be consumed fresh just like spinach, they are also highly nutritious in tea and powder form. They look and taste like a slightly spicy version of green tea/matcha.
Moringa is a highly concentrated source of nutrition. By consuming it, you are fueling your body with deep nourishment. The chart below shows you how Moringa compares to other foods.
What are the other side effects of Moringa?
Your body will be filled with other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B and Iron, which will stimulate your body with natural and long lasting energy.
Moringa also contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete plant protein and excellent superfood for pre and post workouts. This highly nutritious green powder will help your muscles recover faster and more efficiently.
Your body will function optimally longer because Moringa fights free radicals that cause oxidative stress, cell damage and inflammation.
You will be able to think more clearly and stay focused because Moringa supports brain health. The high content of vitamin C and E fights oxidation which improves brain function.
Moringa will detoxify your body of impurities because it helps cleanse the liver. It will even help regulate your digestion and improve bowel movements. Please note that since Moringa is full of fiber it can sometimes be overstimulating if you are not accustomed to a fibrous diet. It is always best to start consuming Moringa in small amounts and gradually increase your daily intake and serving size. I would start with ½ a teaspoon and work your way up to 1 teaspoon per serving and up to 1 tablespoon a day.
