The Moringa tree is a veritable nutritional powerhouse, rich in vitamin E, potassium, protein and minerals. Revered for centuries for its ease of growth and myriad use as food and medicine, it is rapidly gaining favour in the West for its health-supporting properties. Add Moringa to your diet and reap the benefits of this tropical superfood.
Moringa oleifera is a tree native to the Himalayas, India and some parts of Africa. All parts of the tree can be used, and its sustainability and ease of growing have led to it being named Plant of the Year by the NIH in 2008, citing its potential as an answer to food issues around the world.
Moringa is rich in potassium, calcium, vitamin C and protein, packing a powerful nutritional punch. Traditionally it has been used as an antioxidant, as well as for supporting everything from blood sugar to healthy liver and kidney function and detoxification support, normal hormone balance, digestive support, and supporting stable moods.
Topically it has gained favour in recent years in skincare, both cosmetically and as a support for skin healing. Try BioBalance Certified Organic Moringa Powder for an organic superfood boost to your daily smoothie.
