African Moringa is the earth's greatest single source of nutrition, with more vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients than any other gift from Nature. Irrefutable research on Moringa's benefits has scientists calling it "Nature's Miracle".
Young Moringa leaves are hand-picked, shade-dried, and ground into a fine powder, to use as a dietary supplement. Moringa seeds are cold pressed into a fine, gold-hued, cosmetic oil.
There is so much junk these days about Superfoods and other organic alternatives—how can I separate the reality from the hype?
Consider the science: Gram for gram, dried Moringa leaf powder naturally contains 25 times the iron in Spinach, 17 times the calcium in milk, 15 times the potassium in bananas, 10 times the vitamin A in carrots, 9 times the protein in yogurt, high Vitamin C content, over 22 amino acids, high levels of antioxidants, all the B vitamins, chlorophyll& phytonutrients, Vitamin D, zinc, magnesium and selenium.
Whatever the label and the hype, Moringa’s combination of indisputable research and real results makes it a potent choice. Economically, it also makes more sense to buy one product than a whole array of alternatives. That said, we do not discourage the use of other alternatives; we encourage healthy eating, whatever the source.
Is this like Acai, which I get at my healthy juice provider?
African Moringa Miracle Powder is just as antioxidant-rich as Acai (which comes from a fruit grown in Brazil), but it also contains a complete combination of all the vitamins, minerals, omegas, phytonutrients, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties that your body needs for a balanced diet.
I already consume a daily multivitamin (or at least, I’ve been thinking about it). Is this different, and can it be too much of a good thing?
Moringa leaf powder is a whole plant food. The human body recognizes these natural vitamins, absorbs what it needs and ignores the surplus. In this context, you really can’t have too many vitamins.
By contrast, many standard foods in the western world are lacking in certain elements, thanks to such factors as mass farming, pesticide and insecticide use, genetic modification, lack of diversity and demineralized soils. Consumers have an abundance of nutrition and a notable lack of micronutrients. Witness the obesity levels in the United States and the rise of conditions related to diabetes and high blood pressure.
Unlike most vitamins, Moringa powder is natural and raw, and has no fillers, additives, waxes or colorants. Some additives and fillers not only pose some health risks but also hinder the body’s absorption of nutrients. Again, Moringa leaves constitute a whole plant food source that your body immediately recognizes, and readily absorbs the needed nutrients.
Do I really need Moringa?
It will definitely help. As mentioned, the typical western diet is nutritionally deficient, while one teaspoon of African Moringa Miracle Powder Moringa offers a quick, easy, versatile, pure and natural option that you can add to your favorite beverage or food daily and lead you to more balanced diet and increased vitality.
We hear so much about diet fads—is this anything like that?
Not in the least. Moringa is categorically not a weight loss supplement, although with greater nourishment your body will have reduced cravings. (In fact, many users experience some weight reduction.) Moringa also has synergistic compounds: a combination of antioxidants, flavonoids and phytochemicals that trigger your metabolism and improves your body’s effectiveness at absorbing nutrients from food, which in turn reduces cravings.
For the record, we do not recommend cutting back on your diet but instead adding healthy and nutrition-rich foods. Getting healthy is a multi-step, multi-factor process, and it’s good to educate yourself about available alternatives. In that regard, incorporating Moringa into your lifestyle is a very good step.
What is the best time of day to consume African Moringa powder? And without caffeine, does it really provide an energy boost?
Any time of day that works for you—remember, it’s food, and so it can be consumed before, during or after any meal or snack. The flavonoids and antioxdants provide instant energy that lasts all day. (Note: Caffeoylquinic acid contained in Moringa is definitely NOT caffeine but belongs to the flavonoid family.)
I already have a cabinet full of cosmetics and skincare products—why do I need African Moringa Miracle Oil? What do I use it for?
Think of it as an all-in one cosmetic, a facial in a bottle. It gently exfoliates, normalizes, tones and nourishes the skin, giving it a youthful glow. By serving multiple purposes, it boosts your skin regimen and gives you more bang for the buck. Moringa Miracle Oil is a must-have.
I have oily skin, and I’m afraid that using Miracle Oil as a moisturizer will clog my pores and make me break out.
Let’s put this myth to rest once and for all. Oil does not clog pores. In fact, a good oil (one that’s not rancid), when used as a moisturizer, will actually “teach” the skin to normalize and balance oil production, resulting in blemish-free skin and a healthy complexion.
Are there any differences between various Moringa brands?
What we call African Moringa is grown organically in the rich mineralized soils of Africa. We work directly with small farmers to ensure product quality, and to see that they get market value for the product. We also contribute a percentage of our profits to help develop their communities.
We also package our products in amber glass recyclable containers (chlorophyll in the moringa leaf powder is sensitive to direct sunlight), and we have a silicon gel pack in the powder to ensure product freshness. Our packaging plant ensures that each product is sealed and tamper-proof. All of these factors set it apart from most available alternatives.
Are there more products coming from African Moringa?
These are two innovative, natural, sustainable products that offer a multitude of possibilities for individual use. We strongly believe that Wholesome Beauty is attained with a true combination of nutrition, wellness, beauty and vitality. We launched African Moringa around this philosophy, and both products meet that goal. Any products we launch down the line will have to achieve this very high standard. Stay tuned.
