Moringa Oleifera provides infants, children and adults with an abundance of minerals, vitamins, calcium, proteins, beneficial antioxidants and amino acids. Protein Proteins are the 'building blocks of life' and instrumental in the creation and maintenance of body muscle. There are 21 amino acids utilized by the body and although the body is able to manufacture most that it needs, there are several amino acids that must be acquired from a person's diet. Animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy contain all of the essential amino acids, but come with side affects. Amazingly, Moringa leaves also contain them all, but with none of the health issues associated with an animal-based diet. Carbohydrates Compounds heat and energy for the body and the primary fuel of the brain. Deficiency can cause the body to divert proteins and body fat to produce needed energy. Fiber Fiber aids in digestion and is an important part of a healthy intestinal tract. Calcium Very important during the childhood years, calcium builds strong bones and teeth and assists in blood clotting. Deficiencies are common in pregnant and breastfeeding women and can cause rickets, bone pain and muscle weakness. Calcium builds strong bones and teeth, and helps prevent osteoporosis. Milk provides a lot of calcium, but Moringa leaves provide even more and the calcium is much more readily absorbed than milk. Magnesium Magnesium helps the body to maintain and repair cells while providing energy. Deficiencies can result in weakness, tiredness, vertigo, convulsions, nervousness, cramps and heart palpitations. Vitamin A Vitamin A acts as a shield against diseases of the eyes, skin and heart, diarrhea, and many other ailments. Carrots are very high in vitamin A, but Moringa leaves are even higher. Vitamin C Vitamin C strengthens our immune system and fights infectious diseases including colds and flu. Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons are full of vitamin C. Moringa leaves have even more. Potassium Potassium is essential for the brain and nerves. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. Moringa leaves are even better. Amino Acids Moringa leaves contain all the essential amino acids. These cannot be synthesized by the body and must come from a person's diet, often from red meat or dairy products. But these foods are not available in many parts of the world and come with a growing list of side effects. Vitamin K Vitamin K is necessary to aid the liver in producing the chemicals needed for normal clotting of blood in humans. This vitamin is found in Moringa leaves.
