6 Reasons to Add Moringa to your Diet

Published by the Phuket Gazette 

This nutrient-dense plant is one of the most powerful natural multi-vitamins around.

As we continue our superfood series, I should tell you about moringa – the tree of life.

This is not a title to be taken lightly. This nutrient-dense plant is one of the most powerful natural multi-vitamins around. It’s a true superfood with a nutritional breakdown that includes: 92 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, 36 anti-inflammatories, 18 amino acids, 9 essential amino acids and 13 essential vitamins and minerals.

Here are six reasons why you should add moringa to your daily diet:

INCREASES ENERGY

Moringa is an excellent source of vitamin B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, riboflavin (B2) and a source of thiamine (B1) and niacin (B3), all essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to normal, energy-yielding metabolism.

ANTI-AGING

Damage from free radicals accelerates aging. One weapon to neutralize them is through the consumption of anti-oxidants.

Moringa has an exceptional antioxidant profile, with six times the antioxidant content of goji berries and more antioxidants than green tea, blueberries, acai and pomegranates.

The antioxidants, vitamin E, riboflavin and zinc in moringa contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, which also helps in the battle against aging.

STRONG, HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM

Vitamin C and zinc help support the normal functions of the immune system. Moringa is an excellent source of both.

REDUCES TIREDNESS, FATIGUE AND STRESS

Moringa is especially high in vitamin A [325% recommended dietary allowances (RDA) per 100g] and iron (468% RDA per 100g), which support the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

The high-iron content also makes moringa ideal for vegans, vegetarians and those with iron-deficiencies Vitamin A is needed for normal production of red blood cells and iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that transports oxygen through the body.

Moringa is also an excellent source of Vitamin B6, magnesium and potassium and a source of niathin (B3) and thiamin (B1) – essential nutrients that contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.

DETOXIFYING

Detoxification is a natural process that allows the body to eliminate environmental and dietary toxins.

The liver plays a key role in the process and needs nutritional support in the form of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Moringa is an excellent source of 13 essential vitamins and minerals which help to repair damage, as well as nine essential amino acids.

PROMOTES VIBRANT SKIN

Moringa is rich in antioxidants and skin-loving vitamins A, E, riboflavin (B2) and niacin (B3), as well as zinc, which all promote healthy, radiant skin. It also contains almost 25 per cent protein, which helps support the growth, repair and maintenance of healthy skin cells.

AVAILABLE IN TEA, POWDER, OIL & CAPSULES

The leaves are a great addition to a salad. In regards to adding the leaves to cooked dishes, take caution, as excessive heat destroys some of the vitamins, and all of the enzymes. The powder form has a spinach-like taste, so it is ideal for mixing into green smoothies or juices. 

We are blessed here in tropical Phuket, as it is an ideal place to find moringa. I know many people who have it growing in their backyards. You will also be able to find it as a loose powder, tea, oil, and even in capsules. Some local markets may even have the fresh leaves available.
