What Is Moringa Leaf Powder?
Moringa leaf powder is created when the leaves of the Moringa tree are dried, and turned into powder. This powder is classified as a food supplement, because it is taken to add nutrients to food. As one of the most nutrient-rich plants it is classified as a super food.
It is “NEW” to most people in the Western world, but an ancient source of nutrition, medicine and other benefits in countries around the tropics and the Middle-East and Africa.
Around the world, Moringa is known by different names, like Mulanggay -in the Philippines. Some websites have collected more than 200 names in various languages. There are 13 known variants, and more may be discovered in the area of the Horn of Africa especially, where further exploration is hampered by war.
What Makes It So Special?
There are many foods that contain many nutrients, but few match the amount of nutrients that Moringa contains. It is classified as a “Super Food”, a label reserved for foods with exceptional nutritional value for humans
Moringa being so nutrient dense makes it the ideal food supplement. This is important as Moringa is a food, taken in a supplement form to provide nutrients that we no longer get from many commercial foods. Often soil is so depleted that one potato today has 20% of the nutritional value it would have had 50 years ago in the same patch of soil -but do you want to eat 5 potatoes to be well fed?
The leaf powder is a food-state source of nutrients -meaning your body recognizes the natural nutrients for what they are. This means Moringa nutrients have a high bio-availability, that is, the body recognizes and uses the nutrients.
