The Benefits of Moringa Powder

Jul 5th 2021

There's a new(ish) green powder on the block, and you're going to love it as much as you love matcha. Thanks to its rich nutrient profile, Moringa powder has become a popular addition to smoothies, drinks, and foods. It has also found its way into skincare products, where the powder and oil are revered for their skin-friendly properties. It is believed that even the ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks used Moringa leaf for skin issues.

Moringa is a free-radical scavenger and hormone-balancing and an adaptogen superfood. Moringa powder is an excellent plant source of iron and a good source of calcium. It can help keep optimal energy levels throughout the day, as iron is an essential mineral for energy support in the body.

Moringa, sometimes described as the miracle tree, has small, rounded leaves and is known to improve overall well-being, promote sound sleep and help relieve anxiety, and strengthen digestion.*
