Olive oil is well known for its health benefits and is about 75% oleic acid. Moringa oil content is about 73% oleic acid. Moringa is one of the few foods that contain one of the highest naturally occurring sources of chlorophyll together with so many other nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and beneficial fats. Ounce for ounce, Moringa dried leaves has 10 times the vitamin A of carrots, ½ the vitamin C of oranges, 17 times the calcium of milk, 15 times the potassium of bananas, 25 times the iron of spinach and 9 times the protein of yogurt.
Moringa is loaded with phytonutrients – including over 90 nutritional compounds, 46 antioxidants and 36 naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents.
Everything in nature works in symphony – a synergy achieved through the subtle interactions of many components and not just one so-called active ‘isolated’ ingredient. Moringa has a very rare and unusual combination of zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid and kaempferol, all acting in nature’s synergy and performing scientifically explainable outcomes that seem like medical miracles. The Moringa plant has several thousand times more zeatin than any other plant discovered to date. With inflammation now recognized as the “Slow Burn” and the underpinning of practically all diseases, we should be thankful to nature for the miracle Moringa plant. Much of the scientific evidence is beginning to explain the indigenous claims of Moringa being a miracle plant!(click to view source) The high antioxidant/radical scavenging compounds, the high vitamins, high minerals, lipids, simple plant proteins, fiber and full complement of amino acids all of which are bio-chelated, meaning they are in their natural form as part of the leaf’s cellular structure and are therefore most suitable for absorption and utilization by the human body.
Could the plant content be the justification for its widespread medicinal use in traditional medicine across different continents? (click to view source) The leaves of Moringa are an excellent source of the sulphur containing amino acids, methionine and cystine, which are often in short supply in most diets (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research 1962).
Moringa contains copious amounts of the three amino acids, l-cystine, l-glutamic, glycine, and plenty of sulfur so that our bodies can produce the “maestro” of the immune system(click here to view video)
Widespread claims of the medicinal effectiveness of various Moringa tree preparations have encouraged the aforementioned author and his colleagues at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to further investigate some of these possibilities.
“A plethora of traditional medicine references attest to its curative power, and scientific validation of these popular uses is developing to support at least some of the claims. Moringa preparations have been cited in the scientific literature as having antibiotic, antitrypanosomal, hypotensive, antispasmodic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, hypo-cholesterolemic, and hypoglycemic activities, as well as having considerable efficacy in water purification by flocculation, sedimentation, antibiosis and even reduction of Schistosome cercariae titer.” (click to view source)
MORINGA AND VEGETARIANS
” God causes the grass to grow for the cattle and the herbs for the service of humanity.” Psalm 104:14 ”…and the leaf shall be for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:2
Moringa trees are known to overcome protein deficiency all over the world, as the leaves and other parts of the tree contain a high amount of crude proteins and amino acids especially when compared to soy bean.
Moringa is an excellent non-animal source of protein for vegans and vegetarians!!!
“Although few people have ever heard of it today, Moringa could soon become one of the world’s most valuable plants, at least in humanitarian terms.” – Noel Vietmeyer, US National Academy of Sciences, Washington D.C. For vegetarians, raw foodist and vegans: Many plant foods contain limiting but not lacking amounts of the sulphur containing amino acids cystine and methionine, Moringa contains copious amounts of both amino acids. Many plant proteins lack the two essential amino acids lysine and tryptophan, Moringa contains copious amounts of both amino acids. Crude plant protins, excellent meat substitute with no reported allergies.
THIS IS MOST UNCOMMON IN A PLANT FOOD!
MORINGA IN THE BODY
THE BODY IS ITS OWN GENIUS AND WILL HEAL ITSELF WITH PROPER CARE AND NOURISHMENT
The leaves of the Moringa plant have high amounts of bio-available vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and large amounts of anti-inflammatory, anti-toxin, and anti-oxidant elements that bolster the immune system. Once the immune system is bolstered, a whole lot of healing can occur.
Because of the many benefits of Moringa Oleifera, the European Union (EU), World health Organization (WHO) and other NGOs now plant and support its cultivation in nations all over the world in order to combat malnutrition and disease.
Children and senior citizens in particular, markedly experience the benefits of taking Moringa. Moringa has been the secret weapon of some of the world’s top athletes who take it in mega doses. Athletes report a surge in mental and physical energy from using Moringa. Many users are amazed because they feel the health benefits and results so quickly.
Moringa’s benefits are derived from the plant’s high concentration of bio-available nutrients. Moringa Oleifera is rich with diverse vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Best of all, these nutrients are readily available for our bodies to absorb.
Our bodies need twenty different amino acids, or protein types, that are the building blocks for a healthy body.
Proteins act as enzymes, hormones, and antibodies for your immune system. Structural proteins, such as collagen and keratin, are responsible for the formation of bones, teeth, hair, and help maintain the structure of blood vessels and other tissues.
Non-essential amino acids are proteins that your body can synthesize by itself. Essential amino acids are supplied by the food you eat. They must be consumed in your diet as the human body cannot make them. Of the 20 amino acids required by your body, eleven of them are nonessential and nine are essential.
Moringa is considered a complete food because it contains all of the essential amino acids required for a healthy body. Dried Moringa leaf is a nutritional powerhouse and contains all of the essential amino acids.
“Modern science is proving that Moringa’s tiny leaves are packed with incredible nutrients that can strengthen our immune systems and prevent over 300 diseases.”
