Moringa Nutrition

Who knew? I didn’t!  Google, or ask Siri “what’s the most nutritious plant on earth?” Surprised?   90+ verifiable, cell-ready vitamins, minerals, vital proteins, antioxidants and omega oils delivers anti-inflammatory support and naturally increases energy. It also helps nourish the body’s immune system and promotes healthy circulation and digestion. I can replace all my Omega 3, Multi Vitamins and Mineral supplements with 1 simple drink that also has 9 essential amino acids and protein! What a great way to start the day….and the liquid wholefood much better absorbed and utilized by my body!  A sachet per day (or 1/2 a sachet per day for children) of Zija’s SuperMix is enough to deliver measurable health benefits that you will feel and see. This is a smart food, a whole-food supplement providing core nutrition & natural nutritional support…I LIKE that 🙂

Healthy Aging: There are many metabolic and endocrine changes in our bodies when we grow old, and most health challenges associated with advanced age are linked to these changes. But being old (and wise!) does not mean one has to endure these challenges. Populations around the globe, who kept a natural, active way of life and wholesome, nutritious diet have proven that longevity and health can be achieved together. Actually, I believe it is very difficult to fall sick when one has all minerals, nutrients and vitamins necessary, in a good balance. But that is very rare; studies have shown that the majority of population, even in the developed world, lacks many essential nutrients.

The US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has recently reported on underconsumed nutrients—most vitamins (C, A, B, D, E) and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, with 45%, 50% and 97%, respectively, of population not being at required levels! Therefore, supplementation with nutrients is of the essence. Even if their diet would be rich and diverse, most elderly do not eat enough (gum and mastication problems), and digest and absorb nutrients poorly (insufficient intestinal enzymes). The best solution is a nutrient rich, diverse, easily absorbable food. Very few plants qualify.

A plant-based diet is a must, this can provide a majority of necessary minerals, vitamins, as well as antiaging and antiinflamatory substances. Moringa is the best plant/ food/supplement that is wholesome, nutrient dense, amenable to cooking (fresh), preservation (dried), easy transportation (light), with a rather neutral flavor that can complement sweet (smoothies, juices) or diverse salty dishes. It can accommodate any taste. Can you think of anything better?

I like the convenience of moringa, especially dried leaves as well as the awesome seed oil. One plant does it all- food, cosmetic care, multivitamin supplement. The high content of vitamin C – important for collagen (protein vital for the tissue structure) and skin – assures moringa is excellent not only against wrinkles, but also for cartilage and gum maintenance. As a high source of calcium, magnesium and phosphor, moringa brings minerals for bone and teeth density maintenance. Old age is associated with bone demineralization, and this is also due to insufficient proteins, but moringa contains all essential building blocks (amino acids) of proteins, useful for any tissues. Moringa, if grown properly, contains most, if not all minerals necessary for strong bones. Potassium is badly needed in most of us, as we tend to over-eat sodium rich foods.

These two minerals should be in a good balance, rarely found in elderly. Potassium supports a well-working heart and general metabolic health. Every cell needs and benefits from a proper potassium – sodium balance for energy production and communication. As we age, our tissues have more difficulties maintaining the normal minerals-, acidity/alkalinity and water balances. Moringa provides rich amounts of potassium, way better than the famous bananas, as well as magnesium – which works in balance with calcium.

Vitamins E and A are insufficient in over 90% and, respectively 40% of people older than 50! Moringa has large amounts of these vitamins. Both are powerful antioxidants, but also vital for healing, immune support, eye, brain and muscle function. Together with numerous antioxidant compounds present in dietary plants, these vitamins can support healthy immune and anti-inflammatory reactions. Again, a diverse plant-based diet is paramount for healthy aging. ~Dr. Monica Marcu is noted worldwide for her expertise on Moringa, as she has decades of experience in studying a variety of plants.
