Feeling tired and exhausted is the prevalent complaint among people due to hectic lifestyles. Exhaustion and low energy levels seem to be such a major health concern, that Dr. Oz dedicated an entire T.V. episode to it called “energy crisis in America.” We’ve all heard about the common causes of fatigue, including lack of sleep, poor diet to too little exercise.
Reaching for coffee and sugar to increase energy levels can seriously backfire, as it sends your blood sugar levels to an immediate, but short lived high that is followed by a drastic low. A healthy, well balanced diet and sufficient exercise are always key, but there is another important factor that contributes to your energy: a healthy level of magnesium. As it turns out, many people have magnesium deficiencies, which cause headaches, anxiety, sleep disorders, irritability and fatigue.
This is where Moringa comes in. One of the benefits of Moringa powder is its high level of natural magnesium. By adding one serving of powdered Moringa leaves to your daily diet, you’ll get 22 percent of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of Vitamin C, an impressive 272 percent of our RDI of Vitamin A and 37 percent of your daily RDA Magnesium needs. And there is more good news. The level of vitamin B6 in the body determines how much magnesium the cells will absorb and Moringa contains plenty of B vitamins.
While a lot of health supplements contribute to only one aspect of your health, the benefits of Moringa powder are manifold and affect every single part of your body due to Moringa’s extensive concentration of nutrients and high potency. The leaves of the Moringa Oleifera especially, are responsible for making the tree such a health powerhouse.
Moringa leaves contain 90 different types of nutrients, including seventeen times more calcium than milk, ten times more vitamin A than carrots, fifteen times more potassium than bananas, 25 times more iron than spinach and 36 times more magnesium than eggs. They also provide you with zinc, which is needed for proper function of the body’s immune system, lutein, important for eye health, and selenium, which protects cell damage.
Moringa has more than 46 natural antioxidants, among them the powerful antioxidant beta-carotene. With 157,600 units, it measures a higher ORAC (Oxygen radical absorbance capacity factor) than any other super food on the market. Acai for example has 102,700 units, raw elderberries have 14,697 units and walnuts 13,541 units. Antioxidants are the molecules that help neutralize the devastating impact of free radicals, protecting you from cancer and degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration and cystic fibrosis, another remarkable component of the Moringa powder benefits.
It doesn’t only nourish and protect your body from the inside, Moringa also offers numerous benefits when it comes to skin health and anti-aging. The cosmetic industry already takes advantage of that, by incorporating Moringa extracts into more and more of their products. Moringa has several thousand times more zeatin than any other known plant. Besides antioxidants, Moringa’s other noteworthy properties are Kinetin and Zeatin, two powerful types of cytokinesis; plant hormones that have the ability to promote renewed cell division. Both Kinetin and Zeatin have been shown to be effective in improving the appearance of aging skin and are now extensively used in extremely expensive topical skin care products, such as lotions and facial creams.
Another benefit of the Moringa Powder is its richness in amino acids. The leaves of the Moringa tree contain 18 amino acids, eight of which are essential amino acids, making them a “complete” protein – a rarity in the plant kingdom, when most of all protein is provided by animals and present in meat and dairy products. Protein is a crucial element in building muscle, cartilage, bones, hair, skin and blood and is also needed to produce enzymes and hormones.
Protein is found throughout the body and virtually every body part or tissue. It makes up the enzymes that are crucial for many chemical reactions in the body, and supports the hemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood. At least 10,000 different proteins make you what you are and keep you that way.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults get a minimum of 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight per day (or 8 grams of protein for every 20 pounds of body weight). Moringa contains 40% protein by weight.
Regularly consuming Moringa leaves has also been linked to lower blood pressure, improved digestion and mood, immune-boosting effects and weight loss.
