Moringa has been called the miracle tree not only for its nutritional value, but for its many uses. The ancient world used the tree for a variety of uses and now many in sub-Saharan Africa are finding out the uses of this powerful tree. It has gone by many names, but is know by most as Moringa the miracle tree.
Moringa comes in thirteen different varieties. Most varieties grow in Asia and Africa with the most widely grown variety being Moringa Oleifera. It is a hardy variety able to withstand the drought season and roots sturdy enough to withstand high wings and a long Sub-Sahara rainy season. Moringa Leaf Powder is the most commonly used and well know part of the plant. Green-Fu leafs are picked fresh washed and dried out of direct sunlight from the sun. The leaves are dried and ground into a powder.
Moringa Powder’s Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamin A: Vitamin A and its precursor, beta-carotene, are powerful free radical scavengers. Vitamin A also is essential for healthy skin and mucous membranes, the body’s first line of defense against invading microorganisms and toxins, and promotes the immune response. Beta-carotene and vitamin A destroy carcinogens, guard against heart disease and stroke, and lower levels of cholesterol.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): Thiamine enhances circulation and aids in blood formation, carbohydrate metabolism, and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is vital for proper digestion. Thiamine also optimizes cognitive activity and brain function. It has a positive influence on energy, growth, normal appetite, and learning capacity, and is needed for muscle tone of the intestines, stomach, and heart. It also acts as an antioxidant, protecting the body from the degenerative effects of aging, consumption of alcohol, and smoking.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): Riboflavin is important for red blood cell formation, antibody production, cell respiration, and growth. It alleviates eye fatigue and is important in the prevention and treatment of cataracts. It aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Together with vitamin A, it maintains and improves the mucous membranes in the digestive tract. Riboflavin also facilitates the utilization of oxygen by the tissues of the skin, nails, and hair. Consumption of adequate amounts of riboflavin is crucial during pregnancy, because a lack of this vitamin can harm a developing fetus even though the women shows no signs of deficiency.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant that also protects other antioxidants, for instance vitamin E. The cells of the brain and spinal cord, which frequently incur free radical damage, can be protected by significant amounts of vitamin C. Vitamin C acts as a more potent free radical scavenger in the presence of a bioflavonoid called hesperidins.
Calcium: Calcium is essential for the formation of strong bones and teeth and for the upkeep of healthy gums. It is also important in the maintenance of a regular heartbeat and the transmission of nerve impulses. Calcium lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent coronary disease. It is needed for muscular growth and contraction, and the prevention of muscle cramps. It may increase the rate of bone growth and bone mineral density in children. This important mineral is also crucial in blood clotting and helps prevent cancer. Finally it protects against the advancement of preeclampsia during pregnancy, the biggest cause of maternal death.
Potassium: Potassium is vital for healthy central nervous system and a regular heart rhythm. It helps prevent stroke, supports proper muscle contraction and works with sodium to regulate the body’s water balance. It also regulates the transfer of nutrients through cell membranes. Signs of potassium deficiencies include abnormally dry skin, acne, chills, cognitive impairment, constipation, depress, diarrhea, diminished reflex function, edema, nervousness and fluctuations in heartbeat.
Iron: The main iron function in the body is the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin and the oxygenation of red blood cells. Iron is the mineral found in the largest amounts in the blood. It is crucial for many enzymes, including catalase, and is vital for growth. Iron is also required for a healthy immune system and for energy production. Iron deficiency symptoms include anemia, brittle hair, difficulty swallowing, digestive disturbances, dizziness, fatigue and fragile bones.
