Moringa is the Superfood of Superfoods

There are many superfoods available for you to add to your smoothies, but one in particular that I would highlight would be moringa.  It is one of the most powerful superfoods in nature, containing high levels of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids that must be obtained in the diet.  It also has significant levels of vitamins A, C and E, calcium and potassium.  Moringa provides significant levels of anti-oxidants that help to reduce inflammation and pain.  You will have difficulty finding any other superfood that meets the nutrient density of this plant.  In fact, if your budget is constrained, this is one green superfood that I would add above all other because its’ nutrient profile is so complete.kalamunggay_moringa_oleifera

Moringa was a power food for the ancient Greeks and Romans. cultures that were known for their great fighting men.  The tree is native to parts of Africa and Asia, and its leaves have been used medicinally and as a food source for over 4,000 years.

The moringa tree is easy to grow and grows rapidly is varying conditions, which has made it an economic booster for many impoverished countries that have difficulty cultivating other crops.  The leaves can be eaten fresh to add a radish-like flavor to salads or greens.  Most commonly they are dried to preserve them and make them more available to the public.

  1. So what is the best why to have this? I’m thinking mixing it in a protein shake in the morning, perhaps. I’d like to see a label for ingredients and such. I do like finding high protein plant powders because most others have whey in them. I can’t have dairy so it’s always tough to find something I like. Is there a lot of protein in moringa? Thanks.

    1. Yes there is high protein in Moringa, not as high as a specific protein shake but being a natural plant with all of the essential amino acids it will assimilate well. Being dairy free is hard, soaked nuts and some grains are decent sources of protein as well. If you visit Organic India’s site you will find the product label 🙂

  2. Hey Lauren!

    I enjoyed this information. I am glad that I can add this to my recommendations when people are looking for a nutrient packed source that won’t break the bank.

    I was wondering how it tastes or is it tasteless? Also, by adding it to smoothies would it make it thicker or does it effect the consistency at all?

    I will be sharing this post for sure! 🙂

    1. Hi Marlinda, it is a plant so it has some “plant taste,” since people’s individual tastes vary it’s hard for me to tell you if it might be unattractive to you. It is slightly thick but it’s not thick like a powdered protein often is. Be sure to share your Moringa success story!

  3. Moringa powder sounds like the answer I have been looking for. When I am not in a remission I suffer from inflammation in my GI tract. Not fun! This issue limits what I can eat but I still need to make sure I get all my needed vitamins and minerals. Do you think this would be a good option for someone with inflammation in the GI tract?

    1. Yes Rachel, I do think it would be a good option for you. It is a plant so it has quite a bit of fiber, that can be irritating sometimes to sensitive GI tracts so use your history and make an educated decision. Have you tried integrating bone broth into your diet? That can be very helpful in healing a sensitive gut. You might also consider doing some research on sprouting/fermenting/soaking grains before consuming them. I have found this to be very helpful with my GI issues. Good luck! If you have any other questions please feel free to ask 🙂

  4. This is so interesting. I have never heard of this moringa powder before. Just goes to show we can learn something everyday. I will definitely check this out!
