Moringa Super Supplement Super good
Moringa is SO full of beneficial phytonutrients and has so much going for it that it is hard for me not to write a book about it! So stay tuned, because Moringa is in the super-supplement spotlight. We’ll be talking about the protein content and its adaptogenic properties( creating balance in the body).The Complete Vegan and Vegetarian Supplement that everyone should be use daily.
Protein and a Vegan Diet
Of the 20 dietarily relevant amino acids, 11 are non-essential, which means our body can make them. But the rest must come from our diet. These other 9 are found together in animal proteins. Which is great! Unless you are vegan.
Vegans need to eat combinations of plants to gain enough of these essential amino acids. For example, beans are high in protein, but they lack certain essential amino acids. This can be corrected by eating them with rice or corn - which contain the amino acids beans are lacking.
The shuffling of plants to combine them correctly and make sure all the amino acids are consumed in proper amounts can be difficult. And while vegans may argue that they really aren’t deficient in protein, it is possible that they could be low one some of the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) without realising it, or even if they are paying attention to their diet, there are many more casual vegans who may not be.
Enter Moringa!This plant miracle contains a whopping 17 amino acids, and all 9 essential amino acids, making it one of the very rare complete proteins in the plant world!

Nutritional Support and Rejuvenation
Our Viridi Gold Moringa extract is rich in nutrients. The leaf extract is given to address malnutrition, thus making it a great daily addition to the diet
“Moringa is rich in nutrition... In fact, moringa is said to provide 7 times more vitamin C than oranges, 10 times more vitamin A than carrots, 17 times more calcium than milk, 9 times more protein than yoghurt, 15 times more potassium than bananas and 25 times more iron than spinach.”- Gopalakrishnan, Doriya, & Kumar (2016)
Moringa is classified as an adaptogen.
Adaptogens help restore homeostasis (normal function of various body systems). Of the many nutritional benefits from Moringa, weight is one of particular interest to those in the West, as well as other countries.
Adaptogens normalize the delicate balance of the body by normalizing the function of different body systems. Overall, they restore the balance of function in the adrenals, which secrete stress hormones.
These are often overproduced and negatively impacts our bodily function (such as digestive function, circulatory system - i.e. blood pressure - immune system function, and even brain function).
This is because stress force blood circulation from the frontal lobe of the brain (our judgement center) to the more survival and reactionary area of the brain. Stress shuts down digestion, and it decreases our immune response by forcing blood away from the core to our peripheral limbs to make us more equipped to run or fight.
When we are stressed, our blood pressure can rise. But chronic stress and trauma can lead to a lack of regulation of things such as blood pressure and body temp, resulting in dropped blood pressure and passing out (called POTS).
So in short, by regulating our physical reaction to everyday stressors and modulating the action of the adrenals, and reducing the production of stress hormones, moringa allows the other body systems to return to normal function.By restoring homeostasis, one could say that it brings the body into balance and restores normal function of multiple body systems.
