The Power of Moringa

Moringa is known by some as nature's energy Miracle Tree, a tree that is packed with so much nutrition that some call it one of the most powerful foods on the planet. The fruit is 100% natural. Moringa is a tree that is  filled with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids.

The antioxidants that are in Moringa can reverse the signs of aging because they have ten times more antioxidants than red grapes and 30 times more than red wine. Moringa also heals and restores cardiovascular and digestive health as it is full of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols. It is also responsible for offering the minerals and essential amino acids that are essential for proper muscle contraction and regeneration. Celebrities have even attested to the wonders of this versatile fruit.

Moringa contains a fatty acid that is similar to the one in olive oil and is also rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. In case you are wondering why oleic acid is important, let me tell you why. It helps omega-3 fish oils penetrate the cell membrane which helps to make cell membranes suppler. Moringa will boost energy levels naturally, improve digestive functions, induce healthy and sound sleep, provide all of the vital vitamins that are necessary, and improve vision clarity.

Moringa is also a very powerful free radical fighter. It has high levels of fibers and cleanses infections within the body. It will regulate cholesterol levels, promote healthier and younger-looking skin, alleviate diabetes, fight cancerous cells, slow down the aging process, and will also enhance sexual desire and performance.

You can buy it in a powder form and make smoothie drinks too. If they are freeze dried, the berries have a very long life while still maintaining full nutritive value. Moringa is definitely a healing food and should be added to any diet to maintain optimum health.

For more information on the benefits of Moringa, as well as other natural health related topics,

 Moringa is labeled as the antioxidant superfood, it’s known for its substantially large amounts of antioxidants and nutritional value. Moringa has double the cancer-fighting power of blueberries, the formerly known antioxidant contest frontrunner. Consumption of the Moringa not only helps prevent and attack cancerous cells, but it is said to boost energy and overall immunity as well. Actually, the list of supposed and even validated benefits is virtually endless from improved digestion to better circulation, and even better sleep. It is based on these extraordinary characteristics that Moringa has been referred to as the most healthful tree in the world.

Moringa has also shown promises of preventing heart disease, as it has 10-30 times the amount of cardiovascular-fighting phytochemical called anthocyanin found in red wine. You may have heard of these phytochemicals from the French Paradox that enumerates the oddity of heart disease’s rare occurrence in France despite their high fat intake. The concept bears the phytochemicals in the red wine responsible for their continued health.

With all these benefits filling the air, the tree sounds perfect right? Well I'm not here to tell you that it isn't, but I am here to tell you to be cautious about how much Moringa you consume. There is such a thing as an antioxidant overdose that has adverse effects such as weakness, fever and toxicity. So, with a fruit so jam-packed with antioxidants, one must be careful. Experts suggest discussing with your doctor what your optimal dosage of antioxidants is.
