If You Like Turmeric, You’re Going to Love Moringa!
Packed with over 90 essential ingredients including 20+ types of amino acids, 40+ antioxidants, 35+ anti-inflammatory compounds, key vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils and phytonutrients. Few foods can match the nutrition provided by Moringa.
Buzz about turmeric’s anti-inflammatory powers dominated 2017, but 2018 is all about moringa. North American healthy food companies have discovered this super-green from south of the equator, and it’s being touted as an even more powerful inflammation fighter.
Called the “world’s most useful tree” by scientists, moringa’s healing history in India, Chile, and Africa has been little known in this part of the world. But its nutrition profile is now becoming super brag-worthy on the wellness scene: It has twice the protein of spinach and three times as much iron, says nutritionist (and Well+Good Council member) Kimberly Snyder. According to the journal Ecology of Food and Nutrition, it has impressive amounts of calcium, potassium, and vitamin A. So this is pretty much a Survivor Island superfood of choice.
Fortunately, the buzzy veggie has a likable taste—its seeds are slightly sweet, and its ground leaves are nutty and grassy like tea.
