Moringa powder for health, skin and energy is a brilliant choice due to the high levels of nutrients, vitamins and minerals present.It is packed with iron, vitamin A, C and E, amino acids and essential amino acids, calcium, magnesium, potassium and protein.
It is an antioxidant, with flavonoids which are essential in our diet, as mentioned in my recent post on Buckwheat. It is anti-inflammatory with polyphenols, covered in another recent post on Gut Health and contains absorbic acid.
Moringa Oleifera is a tropical flowering plant. It is native to parts of Africa and Asia, including the Himalayas in India, and provides 90 nutrients, including 46 antioxidants and a multitude of minerals. It has become soaringly popular in its natural leaf powder supplement form. However, it is also possible to eat the pods, roots, bark, flowers, seeds, and fruits. Moringa seed extract is not recommended though.
