If you’re like the rest of society, you’re constantly on the go and over committed, which leaves very little room for eating healthy.
Additionally, standard agriculture nowadays has very little to offer in the way of minerals and nutrients due to depleted soils. (You can thank pesticides such as Roundup for that.)
Do your mind and body a favor and make a commitment to adding in herbal supplements such as Speciosa tea and Moringa.
WHAT IS MORINGA?
Moringa oleifera has been praised for its health benefits for thousands of years.
It is very rich in healthy antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. So far, scientists have only investigated a fraction of the many reputed health benefits.
Below, Healthline outlines various health benefits of Moringa oleifera
“Moringa oleifera is a fairly large tree native to North India. It goes by a variety of names, such as drumstick tree, horseradish tree or ben oil tree. Almost all parts of the tree are eaten or used as ingredients in traditional herbal medicines. This especially applies to the leaves and pods, which are commonly eaten in parts of India and Africa.
In Western countries, the dried leaves are sold as dietary supplements, either in powder or capsule form.
Compared to the leaves, the pods are generally lower in vitamins and minerals. However, they are exceptionally rich in vitamin C. One cup of fresh, sliced pods (100 grams) contains 157% of your daily requirement.
The diet of people in developing nations sometimes lacks vitamins, minerals and protein. In these countries, Moringa oleifera can be an important source of many essential nutrients.”
Moringa oleifera is rich in antioxidants
“Antioxidants are compounds that act against free radicals in your body.
High levels of free radicals may cause oxidative stress, which is associated with chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Several antioxidant plant compounds have been found in the leaves of Moringa oleifera.”
In addition to vitamin C and beta-carotene, these include:
Quercetin: This powerful antioxidant may help lower blood pressure.
Chlorogenic acid: Also found in high amounts in coffee, chlorogenic acid may help moderate blood sugar levels after meals.”
Together with Mitragyna speciosa, Moringa can give your body that extra boost of energy it needs!
