Plant Power: Moringa!

THE TREE OF LIFE: One of our favourite superfoods and forever revered in Ayurvedic medicine, the moringa oleifera tree is nature’s one stop multivitamin. Almost all of the tree can be used for its nutrient dense medicinal and culinary purposes, with edible flowers, leaves and seed pods.  

WHY WE LOVE IT: It’s one of the most nutrient packed foods on the planet! With 2 time more vitamin A than carrots, more vitamin C than an orange, and 4 times more potassium than bananas, the benefits of moringa oleifera are expansive. Moringa also boasts 4 times more fiber than oats and 9 times more iron that spinach. What does this all add up to? Moringa supports healthy digestion, mental clarity, boosts energy and lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It’s definitely worthy of the term ‘superfood!’ Moringa oleifera’s running list of benefits are accounted to the fact that it contains, 18 different amino acids, 15 different minerals, all vitamins A through K, 46 antioxidants and all three omegas. Moringa has got what you need! 

HOW WE MIX IT: This slightly carob-green tea tasting miracle superfood can be mixed into everything from smoothies to juice to energy bars to tea! We like it best mixed with cacao, almond butter, bananas and nut mylk. We’re betting this ’tree of life' is going to be the next hot trend in the heath-conscious world!
