Review: Green Virgin Products Moringa Powder

What is Moringa?  
It’s a plant that has more vitamins, minerals, proteins, anti-oxidants and amino-acids than any other food in the world. The Food & Agricultural Organization website defines Moringa as follows:

     Moringa is a genus of shrubs and trees with multi-purpose uses: its leaves, roots and              immature pods are consumed as a vegetable. All parts of the moringa tree are edible. The      leaves are used fresh or dried and ground into powder.

Although fresh leaves are very high in nutrition, dried moringa leaf powder contains the highest nutritional content. Just look at these incredible comparisons: 
  • 10x the Vitamin A of carrots
  • 17x the Calcium of milk
  • 15x the Potassium of bananas
  • 25x the Iron of spinach
  • 9x the Protein of yogurt
  • 4x more Fiber than oats
  • 1/2 the Vitamin C of oranges
  Where does Moringa come from? 
 Found in Africa, the Philippines, tropical Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Moringa is popularly known in many countries as a “miracle plant” because of its nutritional and medical properties.  According to WebMD:
Moringa is an important food source in some parts of the world. Because it can be grown cheaply and easily, and the leaves retain lots of vitamins and minerals when dried,             moringa is used in India and Africa in feeding programs to fight malnutrition…It’s also used      for “tired blood” (anemia); arthritis and other joint pain (rheumatism); asthma; cancer;  constipation; diabetes; diarrhea; epilepsy; stomach pain; stomach and intestinal ulcers; intestinal spasms; headache; heart problems; high blood pressure; kidney stones; fluid retention; thyroid disorders; and bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections.

Moringa powder is great in shakes, juices, or water. I first tried it with water and it tasted horrible. I highly recommend it in a smoothie or juice to help with the taste. After trying it in the juice I was fine with the taste.  I personally think I would like it in a capsule better. Moringa  offers many benefits. I noticed an increase in energy after one use.
