What You Need To Know: The moringa oleifera tree is considered nature’s true multivitamin. With its edible flowers, leaves and seed pods, just about all of the tree can be used for medicinal or culinary purposes. A popular ayurvedic ingredient, it’s a real-life “giving tree!”
Why You Should Try It: With more vitamin A than a carrot, more vitamin C than an orange, and more potassium than a banana, the benefits of moringa oleifera are mind boggling. It supports healthy digestion, mental clarity, provides an immediate energy boost and lowers both cholesterol and blood sugar levels? How, you ask? Moringa oleifera’s plethora of benefits can be attributed to the fact that it contains – brace yourself – 18 different amino acids, 15 different minerals, all vitamins A through K, 46 antioxidants and all three omegas. Whew!
Let’s Get Together: When a jar of this slightly carob-tasting miracle superfood came across our desk, we knew we couldn’t refuse. We’re currently addicted to Moringa Delight’s brand of 100% moringa oleifera raw leaf powder, which can be thrown into everything from smoothies to tea! Look out: we predict this “giving tree” is about to be the next hot trend in the heath-conscious world!
