Moringa Powder is being touted as the new superfood (even though technically it’s been around for a long time.) Extracted from the tropical moringa tree, specifically the moringa oleifera species, the tree can be found in the Himalayas and in parts of southeast Asia, South America, Africa, and the Caribbean.
Why is moringa powder considered a superfood? According to Greeniche, where I got my moringa powder, it’s because it has an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and complete amino-acids. That means it helps with stamina, immunity, detoxification and digestion.
It’s also known to be a good source of protein (29 grams per serving,) fibre & iron. It has antioxidants, as well as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s beneficial in the control of diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. On top of all that, it’s supposed to be good for pregnant women and lactating mothers as well as, it promotes healthy skin and hair!
Wow, now if that isn’t a super food, I don’t know what it.
