Moringa is a pretty special tree. I’ve planted several in my yard, I use it to make live fences, and I even painted a mural about it. It’s not the prettiest plant you will ever see, but it grows fast and has a ton of uses. Not many people in America know about Moringa as it is a tropical plant that loves warmth and sunlight. However I believe we are on the verge of a Moringa Revolution! Indeed Moringa products are already finding their way into health stores and for good reason. It’s a super food! Dried leaves made into powder are put in capsules or used like any protein powder. Not to mention it is super sustainable compared to whey products. Here are five Moringa nutrition facts that will shock you:
Gram for gram:
1. It has 7 times the vitamin C found in Oranges
2. There’s 4 times the amount of calcium in milk and 2 times the amount of protein.
3. Moringa has 4 times the amount of vitamin A than carrots
4. Got sore muscles? There’s 3 times the amount of potassium than bananas
5. The perfect workout powder doesn’t exi.…? Moringa has all the essential amino acids, the building blocks of GAINS. In 100g of Moringa powder there are 27g of protein and 38g of carbs. It is an excellent pre- and post-workout supplement.
The Moringa trees in my yard are only a few months old and almost as tall as me!
It is no wonder Moringa products are starting to gain traction in the West. It is an incredible plant for the developing world, especially where there are far too many malnourished children. A spoonful of Moringa powder a day for a child makes a world of difference. It’s not just for children either. I dry my own leaves and eat the powder. I’ve experienced increased energy and alertness, probably because of all the vitamins!
