Moringa Myth or Magical

I have added Moringa to my morning green drink

Once again, I ask that all my readers take a moment in silence and pray for those in the Philippines and Vietnam.  Thousands have lost their lives and more pounding storms are on their way.  

BS - 113 this morning.  Up again as I had a very bad weekend
BP - 110/77 (Kroger machine) - HR - 63  I went to Kroger as my machine is acting up and I am not sure of the readings anymore.  I had a high reading at the walk on Saturday and want to stay on top of it.

What is moringa

If you are from India you probably know all about this little secret and what it can do for the body.

Found mostly in arid, subtropic regions, Moringa oleifera is likely Nature's most giving plant. Overflowing with antioxidants, vital proteins and nutrients, Moringa is probably the most awesome plant ever studied.

Known by over 200 different names, Moringa grows in over 80 countries.

300 folk medicine remedies reference Moringa.

Of any plant studied on earth to this point, Moringa has the highest protein ratio.

Throughout the world, The National Science Foundation, The National Geographic Society, The National Institutes of Health and the United Nations World Food Program recognize Moringa as an amazing source of nutrition.

Fresh Moringa leaves contain, gram for gram:
  • 7 times the Vitamin C of Oranges
  • 4 times the Vitamin A of Carrots
  • 4 times the Calcium of Milk
  • 3 times the Potassium of Bananas
  • 2 times the Protein of Yogurt

The many benefits of moringa

The many benefits of Moringa that can be easily added to your daily routine can be categorized in one of two ways.  First, there is a long list of the benefits to the inside of your body and mind and secondly, there are the benefits that can be easily seen on the outside. The combination of the inside and outside make it a perfect supplement to take at anytime especially when you consider you can use it in a drink, powder or capsule form.

I am adding the powder form to my drink.

Weight loss

When changing to a healthier lifestyle, the weight loss benefits of Moringa are plentiful because it works to increase the level of metabolism within the body, balances blood sugar levels, and provides more energy that is not sugar based, assisting in the weight loss process.

Pain relief

It has been shown that many age related diseases are due to low grade inflammations within the body. Arthritis and gout are just two of the diseases that seem to strike more frequently as we age. Inflammation often leads to pain. For this reason, more and more are looking to learn about the Pain Relief Benefits of Moringa. Not only will it help with the pain, it will reduce the inflammation that can lead to these diseases.

ECHO farm

I believe I mentioned my son Brian worked on this farm as a volunteer for a couple of years and then had an internship there for an additional year.

We visited the farm a few times and he would tell me about this great product and how this little miracle product was helping malnutrition in Africa and other places around the world.

He tried back then to get me to take some and he even bought it for me - not all that cheap.  Well needless to say I did not understand why it was important until I started my journey and started doing the research on products that are used around the world to help heal the body.

This little gem kept coming to the top and there was no research that pointed to any side effects or complications with moringa.  So I decided to add a 1/4 of a teaspoon to my morning green drink.

If you plan on buying - please by from ECHO as they do a lot for the world and their url is:  http://www.echobooks.org/SearchResults.asp?Cat=153.

They do such a wonderful job and Lydia, my daughter-in-law worked in the bookstore - the farm is just such a great place.

Today I want to thank God for delivering such wonderful little products that our body can use to heal itself.  Also, thank you for ECHO and what they do to help stamp out world hunger.

Bob,

  1. Hi Bob! I liked the site for the Farm! The neem oil actually caught my eye....it sounds very much like malalueca oil (tea tree oil) that I have been using for years. My lotions, soaps, shampoos, and all of my cleaning products have the oil in them. I buy a special shampoo for my dogs as well which contains the oil. It really does help to get rid of the fleas. I feel the neem oil is probably about the same properties.


    Hope you are doing well. I assume you are really busy at the moment!

    1. Marty,

      The farm is awesome and such a great thing to go see. I think one day I will have a post just about it and what it can do for everyone.

      Neem is a great product and not sure it is the same as the tea tree oil - but does some of the same things. We use it for bug spray as it is natural and not like the deat that is in so many sprays.

      I am doing well and just busy at work and trying to land some new business. Not a good place to be when a diabetic but we all have our little battles to fight once in a while.

      These days, the being busy does not hurt as much as it used to because I do not give up my exercise and diet.

      Thanks again for asking,

      Bob
