Have you ever heard of moringa?
Moringa is a powerful superfood that was historically highly valued by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks for its medical properties. It is well known in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory benefits.
5 Reasons You Need Moringa In Your Diet
#1. Moringa has an incredible nutritional profile. It provides your body with a wide range of essential proteins, vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium and phosphorus.
#2. Moringa is loaded with antioxidants. It is filled with vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercetin and chlorogenic acid to fight free radicals, preventing oxidative damage and potentially cancer as well.
#3. Moringa may help regulate your blood sugar levels. It contains isothiocyanates, important compounds that have anti-diabetic effects on your body, reducing your fasting blood sugar.
#4. Moringa can lower your bad cholesterol. It has a hypocholesterolemic effect on your body and can reduce your cholesterol levels and astheroscerotic plaque buildup, potentially preventing heart disease.
#5. Moringa may protect you against arsenic toxicity. Since contamination of groundwater is a global public health concern, it is important to know that moringa can protect your body from arsenic toxicity.
How To Take Moringa
You can add moringa as a leaf by adding it to your salads, smoothies and green juices.
You can use moringa oil on your salads or just take a tablespoon a day by itself.
