Moringa's Dried Leaf Powder is More Potent Than Fresh Moringa Leaf

When you take a delicate Moringa leaf and carefully Chamber dry it - amazing things happen. There is significantly higher nutritional value in the Moringa dried leaf, in some cases over ten times in specific nutrients when compared to fresh Moringa leaf. Many universities and independent research laboratory analyses have confirmed the higher nutritional values in the dried leaf powder. What's more amazing is the gram for gram comparison of Moringa to common fruits and vegetables. The nutritional values of Moringa's many vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll, and anti-aging compounds are higher than it's own fresh leaves.

Moringa, commonly known as the “Miracle  Tree” is considered to be the most nutrient plant ever known to mankind. You cannot have good health if you do not consume food that is nutritional. 

More than 40 basic nutrients should be present in our daily food intake. The most important thing about the nutrients is that they should be from a natural source. Then only, our body will absorb the nutrients. The vitamin and calcium supplements, that we take are not fully absorbed by the body. This is mainly because human body can differentiate between the natural nutrients and the synthetic ones. And moreover, the Vitamins or Minerals, when intake separate, they won’t help much. In other words, the human body will reap the benefit only when the Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and the other nutrients are feed together. Moringa , with 90+ nutrients, is a the best source to nourish the body with the essential nutrients. The list of nutrients present in Moringa can be broadly classified as given below.  

Moringa is rich in vitamin to the extent that it is one of the richest plant sources of Vitamin. Moringa has Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B6 Pyrodixine), Vitamin B7 (Biotin), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol), Vitamin E (Tocopherol) and Vitamin K. Vitamin A is most needed by the body to maintain a perfect vision and to maintain the cardiovascular health. Vitamin The calsium taken by the body works well only in the presence of Vitamin D 

The list of Minerals present in Moringa is abundant and few of the main minerals includes Calcium, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc.  Calcium is one of the most important minerals for the growth, maintenance, and reproduction of the human body. Blood coagulation, transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and relaxation, normal heart beat, stimulation of hormone secretion, activation of enzyme reactions, as well as other functions, all require small amounts of calcium. Moringa is the richest source of Calcium from a plant material and Moringa has 17 times more Calcium than that of milk. Moringa, with 25 times more Iron than that of Spinach, helps in the formation of hemoglobin and myoglobin, which carry the oxygen in the blood and the muscle.  Iron also makes up part of many proteins and enzymes in the body and deficiencies of which leads to the weakening of the immune system. Moringa with 15 times the potassium in Banana,  assists in the regulation of the acid-base and water balance in the blood and the body tissues.  It assists in protein synthesis from amino acids and in carbohydrate metabolism.  It is necessary for the building of muscle and for normal body growth. Moringa is the natural alternative for the calcium supplements available in the market.  

Moringa has approximately 46 antioxidants and is one of the most powerful source of natural anti-oxidants.  Anti-oxidants supply the free atoms needed by the human body and mitigate the effect of free radicals. Moringa leaves are rich in Flavonoids, a class of anti-oxidants. The major anti-oxidants present are Quercetin, Kaempferol, Beta-Sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic acid and Zeatin. Antioxidants play a major role in controlling the symptoms of aging process and improves the cardiovascular health. Additionally, Vitamin C & Vitamin E, present in Moringa, also  function as anti-oxidants. Researches confirm that the anti-oxidants deliever the desired result, if only taken with the combination of other esential vitamin and minerals, which makes health enthusiats to sought after Moringa.  

Moringa is  filled with Phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are certain organic components of plants, and these components are thought to promote human health. The phytonutrients present in Moringa include, Alpha-carotene, Beta-Carotene, Beta-cryptoxanthin, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Chlorophyll. Phytonutrients flushes toxins from the body, purifies the liver, helps to strengthen the immune system, helps in rebuilding the red blood cells and the important of all, Moringa  Phytonutrients rejuvenate the body at the cellular level.
