The Miracle Tree…

Nutrition is so important on your journey to being the best you can be. I believe that food is medicine and in the same respects it can also be poison!  You have to be so careful about what you are putting into your body…

With that being said i wanted to drop a little knowledge bomb about a powerful tree that has some ‘miracle’ benefits!

Have you ever heard of Moringa?

In March of 2010, Science Daily deemed Moringa as the “world’s most useful tree.”   Have you ever heard of Moringa? If not, you are going to be fascinated by this miracle tree!

Moringa (Moringa Oleifera) is rapid-growth deciduous tree accustomed to hearty tropical or arid weather patterns, growing naturally in Asia and Africa. Packing a storehouse of nutrients, the Moringa leaves, fruit flowers and seedpods of the tree contain immense nutritional value. Delicate in flavor and rich in protein, beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium and calcium, the leaves make an excellent green vegetable, and can be eaten raw in salads or smoothies or steamed.

However, Moringa offers much more than a just a mild flavor.  Studies have shown the miracle tree to have medicinal effects such as:

Moringa has been used as an additive in sexual virility drugs to treat erectile dysfunction in men and increase sex drive (as an aphrodisiac) in women.

Boosts energy levels
Loaded with vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, potassium and calcium, Moringa is a great alternative to typical energy supplements.

Act as an antioxidant
Moringa contains quercetin and kaempferol, which are powerful flavonoids.  Flavonoids are compounds with antioxidant action that have therapeutic qualities.

Improve digestion
Moringa’s ample amount of B vitamins aids in the digestion process. B Vitamins are mainly involved in getting energy from the food you eat into your cells, a very important activity!

Improve immune system function
With the impressive amount of vitamin A, calcium, potassium, vitamin E, iron and protein it is no wonder that Moringa can give your immune system a boost.

Protect the stomach lining & Treat stomach ulcers
Studies have shown that Moringa leaf extract may work in a number of ways to reduce and treat the instance of stomach ulcers including: reducing the inflammation caused by an excessive build-up of Helicobacter pylori (harmful stomach acid), increasing resistance to these type of damaging bacteria as well as acting as a antioxidant to eliminate free radicals in the system

Purify water & Act as an antibacterial agent
A protein in Moringa seed has the ability to bind to impurities in the water causing them to clump together, allowing the bacterial and otherwise harmful clusters to be effectively removed.

With all the health and wellness benefits it offers, Moringa truly lives up to its name as the miracle tree!
