Up your superfood game!

Written by MjauJune 26, 2016

When doing my weekly market run this Friday morning I ran upon this lovely lady selling locally produced superfoods. She was selling everything from coffee, cacao, honey and coconut oil to spices like oregano and turmeric. But what caught my eye was a package with a green powder called moringa.

The entire moringa plant, from root to leaf, has a highly nutritious profile. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants and provides you with tissue-protective properties.

  • Moringa is rich in vitamin A, C, K and B-vitamins.
  • One serving will give you 41% daily value of Potassium61% daily value of Magnesium71% daily value of Iron125% daily value of Calcium.
  • It also contains 46 Antioxidants36 Anti-Inflammatories18 Amino Acids and 9 Essential Amino Acids!
  • All these different nutrients can boost you energy levels, improve your digestion, immune system function and mood, lower your blood pressure, protect your stomach lining and treat stomach ulcers.

You can mix the powder in your smoothies, juices and water or sprinkle it over your food. I take a teaspoon and mix it with my hot lemon water first thing every morning. If the lemon water drink seams a bit rich for you, stay tuned for tomorrow when i’ll share the recipe of my Good-morning Moringa smoothie 🙂 Lets up your superfood game together!
