Moringa Leaf Powder is an excellent natural multivitamin supplement while maintaining a healthy dietary intake of whole foods, fruits and vegetables.
1.Energizes our Bodies
Moringa helps nourish and energize our bodies with a myriad of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and macronutrients. If our bodies’ nutritional requirements are met, junk food cravings will naturally be curbed and we will have the energy we need to maintain a healthy & active lifestyle.
2. Strengthens the Immune System
A study published in the scientific journal Food Chemistry (2007) showed that Moringa leaves contain powerful antioxidants that can supplement and support the body’s own natural immune functions. The right nutrition, along with regular exercise, will greatly strengthen our bodies' ability to achieve a high level of self-healing.
3. Helps Combat Common Nutritional Deficiencies
Supplementing a healthy diet with Moringa powder is like taking a completely natural source of multi-vitamin that significantly boosts your daily nutritional intake. Your body absorbs this whole-food nutrition much better than supplements made of synthetically manufactured vitamins/minerals. Moringa has more than 90 bio-nutrients and 46 antioxidants along with all of the essential amino acids, all naturally occurring.
4. Provides Nourishment to the Eyes and the Brain.
In addition to a balanced diet that includes good amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, taking nutrient-rich supplements like Moringa Oleifera leaf powder can help slow down the advancement of eye diseases like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Moringa has significant amounts of Vitamin A (beta-carotene), lutein, zeaxanthin – all of which improve eye health and help reduce the risk of macular degeneration. A study done in 2010 showed that flavonoids from Moringa worked very well in preventing and stopping the development of cataracts in rats.

In India, the Moringa plant has been used for many years in Ayurvedic (traditional) medicine to control high blood pressure and blood glucose levels. It has also been used to combat cardiovascular ailments and obesity-related issues.
A 2006 research study done by the Tokyo University of Agriculture found that Moringa Oleifera leaf powder lowered blood glucose levels in diabetic rats. Researchers believe this may be due to moringa powder’s high content of dietary fiber and polyphenols like quercetin.
6. Helps Reduce Inflammation & Pain caused by Gout and Arthritis
Research has shown that the effects of Moringa Oleifera leaves suppress the COX-2 enzyme which is responsible for inflammation processes and pain. In 2008 the Faculty of Medicine Health Sciences of the Putra University in Malaysia published a research that found that the Moringa Oleifera leaves (in aqueous extract) possess high quantities of substances that have anti-nociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities.
This study also confirms the traditional uses of Moringa Oleifera in the treatment of ailments, particularly those related to pain and inflammation.
