BENEFITS

  • Moringa oleifera is an exceptionally nutritious tree with a variety of potential uses, as all parts of the Moringa tree are edible and have long been consumed by humans. Moringa is also naturally caffeine-free.
  • Moringa leaves have been advocated as an outstanding indigenous source of vitamin A, calcium, iron, vitamin C, and potassium; the protein quality of Moringa leaves also rivals that of milk and eggs! Moringa has been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.
  • An examination of the phytochemicals of Moringa species affords the opportunity to examine a range of fairly unique compounds. In particular, this plant family is rich in compounds containing the simple sugar, rhamnose,and it is rich in a group of compounds called glucosinolates and isothiocyanates. While these compounds are relatively unique to the Moringa family, they are rich in a number of vitamins and minerals as well as other more commonly recognized phytochemicals such as the carotenoids (including beta-carotene or pro-vitamin A). Moringa preparations have also been cited in the scientific literature as having antibiotic, antitrypanosomal, hypotensive, antispasmodic, antiulcer, anti-infammatory, hypo-cholesterolemic, and hypoglycemic activities.
  • What sets Moringa tea apart is the way it is processed. Moringa tea leaves are freeze dried, which prevents the EGCG compound from being oxidized. By contrast, black and oolong tea leaves are made from fermented leaves, which results in the EGCG being converted into other compounds that are less effective in fighting various diseases.

APPLICATIONS/USE

  • Loose leaf tea, teabags, RTDs (ready-to-drink beverages)
