Moringa – The Super charger for your festive season

Moringa

The Super charger for your festive season

The Moringa tree is native to India, but also grows in Asia, Africa and South Africa. It contains a wide variety of proteins, vitamins and minerals, which is why it can help you to feel energised and strong.

Moringa is one of my favourite superfoods right now as it has so many incredible health benefits and the powder is easy to put into a drink or a green smoothie. This fabulous superfood helps the body to fight inflammation, which is vital this time of year as there are so many cold and flu germs around us all of the time – so it is up to us to create a strong and resistant body to fight them off. It’s also amazing as can help prevent diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis. Taking Moringa is linked to a decrease of plaque formation in the arteries, and preliminary results of certain tests have even shown it may be able to treat Alzheimer’s Disease too.

The leaves and flowers of Moringa contain a high concentration of polyphenols which also protect the liver against oxidation and damage, which of course, with the indulgence of Christmas can be super useful! Moringa is also effective if you have a wound or cut, as can reduce clotting time and help heal skin damage.

A lot of people get into taking this product because of weight loss purposes, and yes, it is very helpful, but it’s not a quick fix. It is however very effective and here’s why…

it won’t cause you to lose water weight or trick you into thinking you’re losing weight, only to find it comes right back the second you stop taking the supplement/superfood and it won’t cause dramatic weight loss results instantly. But what it does do is it fills
you up with insoluble fibre that prevents constipation and promotes a healthy digestive system. This high fibre content also slows food absorption, keeps your blood sugar regulated, and makes you feel fuller for longer periods of time. Aside from being a plant that is super-low in calories and high in nutrients like vitamins A, C and manganese, Moringa contains an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid. This
antioxidant balances your blood sugar and acts as a fat burner, which over time could help you to become the weight you are comfortable with.

All you need is 2 x teaspoons in liquid daily.
