Yes, all of our Moringa is USDA Certified Organic.

Our products use only the leaf of Moringa Oleifera. The seeds, roots, and bark are interesting, but the bulk of the nutrition is found in the leaves, and we stick to that.

Most definitely, no gluten or MSG here.

Such a power plant doesn’t need any sort of modification. There are no chemicals (pesticide, herbicide, or otherwise) applied to our Moringa at any stage. Our Moringa is natural, organic, and sustainable.

The list of benefits is almost too long to list here. While one individual may notice benefits that vary from others, regular users note improvements in digestion, daily energy levels, mental clarity, vision, and overall well-being. Moringa is widely used as a lactation enhancer, adding to its nutritional value for new mothers. It also promotes a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure. In well-documented studies on animals and humans, Moringa lowers blood-glucose levels, making is a potent addition to anti-diabetic medicines.

What we call Moringa oleifera goes by over 200 hundred names abroad, which makes it a difficult plant to keep track of. It grows almost anywhere that stay above 70 degrees and is a major food source for native people. So the plant has flown under the radar and hasn’t been produced commercially. However, Moringa is also used in many trade-secret formulas for supplements, and the oil is used in the same manner in high-end cosmetics.

While Moringa is high in fiber, just like all leafy vegetables, it is not found in our final product. Much like your average steeped tea, Moringa’s fiber is found in the leafy bits that get strained out from our final product.

We don’t suggest ingesting an absurd amount of our product. It has been confirmed by the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Centre in Ghana that there are no toxic elements in the leaves, and families eating large amounts of it experienced no side effects.

We are all a bit different and can respond in unique ways. If there are any side effects from large amounts of Moringa, they are a result of the detoxing effect from the plant. Symptoms from the beginning of a detox, as you may know, range from mild headaches and upset stomachs, to nausea. These gradually disappear as the toxins are flushed out of your body.

Moringa is a food and nutritional supplement and does not lay claim to cure or prevent any illness or disease. The FDA approves drugs to offer these benefits. Moringa is not a drug. Many of our customers consume it to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall wellness supplement.

Elements to consider when judging a crop to be sustainable or not is it’s drought, heat, and salt resistance. Moringa is especially resilient to all three of these conditions a high degree, flourishing in areas from the tropics to unforgiving desert conditions in Africa. Even in the toughest conditions and roughest soils, Moringa’s leaves are incredibly nutrient rich and replenished rapidly upon harvest. These qualities make Moringa the ideal candidate for fighting malnourishment all over the world

Contributing to the ever-present ‘too good to be true’ reaction are studies that have examined Moringa’s anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties in cells. There is no proof that Moringa can directly cure cancer, however Moringa does contain glucosinolates. These compounds are shared with other chemopreventive (cancer-fighting) foods like broccoli which probably play a role in the anti-cancer activity of this amazing super-food.

Much like it’s cancer fighting abilities, Moringa has been shown to increase the red and white blood cell count in rats. Without a doubt, there needs to be more research done to fully understand Moringa’s effect on the human body.  There has not been enough research done on Moringa and white blood cell counts to make a conclusive statement on its effects.

Pregnant women should ask their doctors before deciding to incorporate any new food into their diet, especially whole food-supplements such as Moringa. Moringa is used extensively in developing communities at all stages of conception and pregnancy for its nutrient density, particularly iron. Information has been mixed around and there is confusion about the effects of different uses of the bark, seeds and roots which have, in folklore, been used to cause miscarriage. Those parts of the plants have been traditionally used more medicinally. While they too have wonderful benefits to talk about, their contraceptive properties are unproven and not found in the leaves. To repeat the point: the potential contraceptive properties of the bark, seeds, and root ARE NOT found in the leaf.

Very little scientific data is present to address this topic. In contrast, the plant has been used for a millenia and is considered safe by its consumers globally. Indian researchers tried to emulate its contraceptive properties in rats in the late 1980’s. Many of their extracts were from the seeds and roots, however, one of their studies involved the leaves. Seven rats were given a high dose of special moringa leaf extract and it was found that it caused miscarriages. It’s important to note that the number of rats was small, and it is unclear whether similar effects occur in humans. Meanwhile, many people use the plant to aid their pregnancy, in fact, some even recommend it to increase chances of conception.
