  • Make Way for Moringa
Make Way for Moringa

Moringa oleifera is the next up and comer in the nutraceutical industry. It’s fresh, it’s trendy, but what does it do? More than we thought!

Origin

Commonly known as horseradish tree, drumstick tree (the resemblance is arguable), and ben tree, moringa oleifera is a small tree in Pakistan, India, and Nepal. It has been used for centuries in Eastern countries to prevent ailments such as anemia, arthritis, liver and heart disease, along with skin, respiratory, and digestive disorders (mindbodygreen).

While its pods, roots, bark, flowers, and seeds are all edible, people are becoming increasingly interested in moringa as a powder supplement. Moringa supplements are also made in the form of capsules.

All the parts

Nearly every part of the drumstick tree are eaten or used as an ingredient in traditional herbal medicines. Its leaves and pods are especially nutritious. In fact, one cup of fresh chopped leaves contains Vitamins A, B6, and C, riboflavin, magnesium, iron, and protein (healthline).

A study actually found that leaf extracts of the tree had higher free-radical-scavenging capacity, antioxidant activity, and higher inhibition of protein, lipid, and DNA oxidation than its seeds and flowers. Why is this good? Moringa oleifera can prevent the damage and degradation that free radicals cause in the cells of different organs in the body, maintaining their proper functions (mindbodygreen). Let’s learn more about what the horseradish/drumstick/ben tree has to offer.

All the benefits

Blood Sugar: Research shows that moringa has the ability to help lower blood sugar levels.

Antioxidants: Multiple antioxidant plant compounds have been found in the leaves of moringa oleifera. That includes Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, quercetin, and chlorogenic acid--all powerful antioxidants. One study involving women found that taking 1.5 teaspoons (7 grams) of moringa leaf powder every day for three months considerably increased blood antioxidant levels.

Mental health: Moringa’s high levels of vitamins C and E can fight off oxidation that leads to neuron deterioration. This magical supplement has the power to normalize neurotransmitters such as serotonin, noradrenaline, and dopamine in the brain, influencing mood, organ function, memory, and response to stimuli (mindbodygreen).

Inflammation: Scientists believe that isothiocyanates are the key anti-inflammatory compounds in moringa leaves, seeds, and pods, helping to prevent the development of infections. Infections are caused by sustained inflammation and can lead to chronic health complications, including cancer and heart disease (healthline).

Cholesterol: We know that high cholesterol levels are directly related to an increased risk of heart disease. While many plant foods such as flaxseeds, almonds, and oats can lower bad cholesterol, moringa oleifera might have similar effects. That means it can potentially lower the risk of heart disease—saving lives.

Since you asked

The best part about this supplement, in my opinion, is its versatility. Sure, capsules are easy and convenient, but you can give your customers the option to blend moringa oleifera with their favorite smoothie or drink. Moringa’s powder form has a mild flavor, which makes for a light moringa tea with a slightly earthy taste. Who loves tea? I know I do.
