MORE ABOUT MORINGA THE “ELIXIR TREE”

 

Moringa is the greatest known supplement ever discovered by mankind. Moringa was named the “Elixir Tree” because all parts of the tree are used as food and medicine.

The tree contains powerful magnetic particles. When the seeds are placed in a bowl of contaminated water, these magnetic particles attract 95% of the bacteria, dirt, soil, chemicals, oil, deadly pollutants and other toxins found in the water, to the bottom of the bowl. In a similar process, Moringa seeds are believed to clean the toxins present in the blood.

Athletes and Sportsmen: –

Constant practice is a necessity for the success of Athletes and Sportsmen alike.  Obviously proper nutrition also plays a major part and it is here that Moringa can give them a great boost. Morninga provides them with all the essential vitamins, minerals and protein to help them in various ways, but mainly to improve their strength and endurance.

Improve Endurance: –

Moringa with its high vitamin A and vitamin C content combined with its extraordinary iron content helps to improve the haemoglobin content of the blood. This in turn helps the blood to deliver more oxygen to the muscles during aerobic endurance exercise. The increased oxygen carried by the blood also helps to increase the metabolic rate and assists in burning unwanted fat deposited in the body. 

Antioxidants & Free Radicals: –

Free radicals are atoms that exist in the human body that constantly attack other healthy body cells to get free electrons. Antioxidants supply the free atoms needed by the human body and mitigate the effects of free radicals. Moringa has approximately 46 antioxidants and is one of the most powerful sources of natural antioxidants.

Mental Alertness: – 

Moringa, with 2 times more Beta-carotene, than that of carrots and 9 times more iron than that of spinach and being rich in vitamin E, improves oxygen absorption. As the oxygen supply to the brain increases, the functionality of the brain is stimulated and mental clarity improves. 

Clarity of Eyesight: –

Today due to computer and other electronic devices, the increased stress on the eyes requires extra nutrients to maintain clarity of vision. The power of our eyesight is directly related to the supply of vitamin A to the body. Moringa has 2 times more vitamin A than that of carrots and this increased carotene content is extremely beneficial to eye health.

Lactating Mothers: –

Lactating mothers generally require a lot more nutrients than a normal person and Moringa leaves and pods seem to provide most of the required vitamins, minerals, proteins, carotenoids and carbohydrates in one handy package. Moringa has 14 times more calcium than that of milk secreted by lactating women, but also improves the nutrient quality of the milk generated. In this way, mothers who regularly consume Moringa will have a better nutritional profile and as such, the milk secreted by them will be filled with more nutrients. 

Middle Aged Women: – 

Generally people in their 40s and 50s, especially women need lots of vitamins and minerals for performing the normal functions of the body. Middle-aged women suffer a number of health disorders due to the physiological and enzymatic changes in their bodies. There are many ways that Moringa can assist them to face this sometimes stressful journey with better confidence.

Menopause: – 

Menopause is a crucial stage in every woman’s life. Though for some this can be a stressful time, many of the symptoms of menopause can be overcome with the help of proper nutrients.  Since Moringa has many natural vitamins, minerals and proteins, it is a good choice to assist in alleviating the symptoms of menopause.

 Bone Strength: –

Moringa with its high calcium content is an ideal solution for this problem. Since the calcium present in Moringa is 100% obtained from the natural sources, the body readily absorbs this. The high magnesium content present in Moringa is an important mineral for bones.

 Osteoporosis: –

The human body needs calcium for its normal functioning. Generally for people in their fifties, if enough calcium is not available in their diet, the body absorbs the calcium from their bones and this leads to the condition known as Osteoporosis. Moringa, with its high calcium content supplies the calcium required by the body and in doing so, helps to maintain healthier bone health.

Immune System: –

Moringa with its high iron and Beta-Carotene content helps to improve the haemoglobin levels in the blood, and this in turn strengthens the immune system.
