Let’s Talk About It: Moringa

Moringa, What is it?

Moringa Oleifera is a plant that has some truly great properties. Used for thousands of years for its rich bioactive plant compounds and antioxidants, moringa is a great addition for just about anybody looking to improve their health.

What Can It Do For You?

Moringa is a great source of protein, vitamin C, riboflavin, beta-carotene, and magnesium. With a high level of antioxidants, moringa can help in the prevention of issues such as diabetes and heart disease if paired with healthy lifestyle choices. 

One of the most prominent antioxidants found in this plant is quercetin, which is thought to help lower blood pressure. Another antioxidant is chlorogenic acid which is also found in coffee and is thought to help lower blood sugar. High levels of vitamins C, B2, and A means it may also help build immune systems, eyesight, and energy. 

Magnesium is known to help with muscle development and hair growth. Moringa has been studied more than most of the herbs we discuss. In one of those studies, it was found that moringa may be helpful for women who are going through menopause. Additionally, in personal accounts, those who have tried moringa and some who swear by it have told us that they experience an increase in energy, overall health and well-being, hair growth, and even better sleep.

How is it Consumed?

Similar to kratom, moringa can be consumed in several ways. The most popular method is capsules ingested orally. It can also be mixed with food, in smoothies, or just taken with water. Moringa has a mild and pleasant flavor, which may make taking it easier than with some other herbs. This may be helpful to those with sensitive palates.

Why is This Important?

Due to the vitamin C content and other vitamins and antioxidants, it could be a useful tool for building your immune system and improving overall health. Now more than ever is a great time to focus on these critical aspects of health.

Other Commonly Asked Questions 

How is moringa different from kratom? The chemical composition is the main distinction between moringa and kratom. Unlike moringa, which contains a range of essential nutrients, kratom contains alkaloids. 

Are their effects different? Yes. Because of their differing chemical profiles, moringa and kratom have unique effects on the user. Moringa is primarily used to improve overall health and boost the immune system. On the other hand, kratom is used to ease various symptoms, provide an energy boost, or help the user relax. 

Are there regulations on moringa like there are on kratom? In short, no. While both substances are natural and shown to improve the quality of life of their users, kratom is far more regulated. At Austin Organic Village, we’re passionate about supporting the fight to legalize kratom everywhere so everyone who needs relief has access to its benefits.
