Magic Moringa: Health Benefits, Medicinal Uses and More

Moringa - have you heard of it? This impressive plant is making waves as a superfood and modern medicine thanks to its rich nutrient profile and astounding medicinal properties. In today's post, we’ll explore moringa’s many uses and health benefits to see why it deserves a spot in your wellness routine.


Moringa Olifera Leaves and Flowers

Let's start with the basics...

Moringa is a plant native to India that goes by many names - drumstick tree, horseradish tree, benzolive tree - but we like to call it the miracle tree! Almost every part of the moringa plant is edible and packed with nutrients. With its crisp green leaves and slender branches, Moringa may look unassuming but it overflows with medicinal compounds that make it anything but average.


So what exactly does Moringa have to offer? For starters, it’s packed with over 90 different nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. These include iron, calcium, vitamins A, C, and E, riboflavin, protein and so much more. Moringa has been used traditionally to fight fatigue, protect the liver, improve breastmilk production, and boost immunity. Additionally, Moringa is a complete protein (extremely rare for a plant) which makes it a wonderful addition to plant-based diets!


With all this nutritional firepower, Moringa can profoundly impact your health. Here are some of its top benefits:

- Increased energy and relief from fatigue

- Protection and detoxification of the liver

- Improved digestion and gut health

- Lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol

- Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral capabilities

- High antioxidant content to fight free radicals

- Boosted immune function and resistance to infections

- Faster wound healing with better circulatory health


Research shows Moringa’s potential to treat and manage conditions like diabetes, arthritis, anemia, asthma, epilepsy, and even cancer. Adding it to your routine is easy since the leaves, pods, and seeds are edible. Add dry or fresh leaves to smoothies, soups, and curries, brew them into a therapeutic tea, or add them to any of your favorite dishes. With its light, spinach-like flavor, moringa can be added to virtually any dish.


Why do we love it?

Besides its plethora of health benefits, we love it because we have seen Moringa work its magic firsthand. We have seen how powerfully it has impacted our clients with chronic illnesses and ourselves as both my mother and I heal from Lyme Disease. When nothing else seems to alleviate debilitating exhaustion and fatigue, the magic that is Moringa gives us the energy boost that we need to get through the day. Its anti-inflammatory properties are a godsend as well for anyone dealing with arthritis, joint pain, and inflammation. This magical herb is gentle, fast acting, and has very few drug interactions, making it an herb that almost everyone can benefit from.
