Moringa leaf powder has high nutritional values, it contains almost all amino acids, 70 percent of protein, a high percentage of minerals and antioxidants, and with such qualities it is called “super food”.

What exactly does that mean?

– You can live only on moringa! It sounds too serious, but it’s true! It is used in areas where there are many hungry people, because it grows quickly and can be used in abundance.

When you are stressed and can’t think of food, taking moringa will ease your efforts and give you energy for the day. After a period of illness when you are recovering, with anorexia, feelings of exhaustion and weakness, after a hard training, you quickly regain energy.

It stimulates agni, the fire of digestion and the entire metabolism, and facilitates weight loss.

However, there are many ways to improve or neutralize its aroma, from putting half a teaspoon of moringa powder in the smoothie (then it does not change the taste), to take it together with honey and lemon and mix it well – necessarily in a blender, it homogenizes better.
