What is moringa powder and how to use it

Moringa powder is completely considered a super food because it is rich in nutrients. Originally from South Asia, it can also be found in the tropics. By its antioxidant properties, this plant is three times stronger than the chokeberry.

It is used in the treatment of high blood pressure, anaemia, colitis, osteoporosis, diabetes, impotence, and premature aging. Moringa powder has a greenish colour and successfully regulates blood cholesterol and glucose levels. It causes general interest for quite legitimate reasons, and it adopted the name “green gold”. For the health-conscious people, who want to maintain good general condition of the body system - this plant is certainly the right choice.

Where does the tree of life grow and how is it cultivated

Moringa tree is native to India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Today, the plant is spread over the subtropical region all the way to Africa, Asia, Hawaii and Thailand. Specifically it thrives in all parts of the world where it is warmer than 0 degrees. This plant is called the Tree of Life.

Most suitable to it is the temperature over 10 degrees C. It tolerates drought, but moisture and cold do not suit it. Otherwise it is appreciated as the most nutritious plant that is so far known to mankind. Because of its green gold Moringa powder, it is rightly considered super food.

Moringa tree is also known as wand-wood, because of the shape of its edible fruit (green pods filled with seeds). Every part of the tree can be used:
  1. The leaves and pods are eaten as a vegetable;
  2. Moringa powder is obtained by drying the leaves, used as an antibacterial agent for hand washing;
  3. Bark, seeds and roots are used to treat heart problems, control of diabetes and alleviate body temperature;
  4. Moringa oil is applied in cosmetics, as anti-inflammatory and regenerative product.

For a plant that is certainly an incredible potential!

User experience with moringa powder

We bring you the experience and results of our readers:
There's nothing I have not used for recovery of the scalp and always seemed to me that it was the same. With hair dying I started as a teenager and that was the source of all my problems with the decline. Already with 23 years my hair is considerably thinned and became visibly dry on the tops. A friend of mine recommended the moringa oil for hair and I got it immediately. I use it for 11 months and I am very happy. My hair is thick again, great (not greasy) and very soft to the touch. Wholeheartedly recommend it! Catherine, aged 24. 
I use moringa powder for 6 months and have no more problems with the stomach acid. Two years ago I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis, which was caused by helicobacter. I went on a strict diet regime, so as not to let the disease get complicated and lead to ulcers. I managed to some extent to deal with heartburn, until I got the "green gold". I apply a simple recipe, dilute a teaspoon of Moringa in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it in the mornings. I have no further gastric interferences. Dusan, 42 years. 
I drink orange juice with Moringa for several months. It helped me with problems with insomnia. It is easier to fall asleep now and I wake up as a new man. Things extremely irritated me before, such as public transport, which is 15 meters away from me, now it no longer bothers me. I recommend moringa powder, but I heard it was equally good in a tea blend - and I have to try it. Lazar, retired 66 years.
