Nutrition for Body and Soul

Why do people feel so much younger from consuming true Moringa oleifera? This is a big reason why.

The Moringa that is found online and in health food stores is either powder capsules or powders meant to mix with smoothies and other foods.

They are comprised of using dried and crushed leaves. While this is still better than nothing. Getting the complete nutritional benefit of Moringa comes from more than just the leaf.

Zija International has gone to great lengths to ensure that their proprietary blend uses the leaf, the seed cake, and the seed pod. All of these provide different core nutrients.

In addition to using various parts of the plant, Zija also shade dries their raw materials. This ensures that none of the components lose their enzymatic activity or bio-availability.

Zija also uses various age groups of the plant. Juvenile, adolescent, and mature plants. They discovered that the nutrient profiles were different at the various age groups.

Last but not least they studied the 58 species of Moringa from various countries and regions around the world. They found that the most nutrient dense hailed from India at the best of the Himalayas.

Given the nutritional profile of Zija’s Moringa the daily cost of this complete daily nutritional supplement is just about $3.00 a day.

What is Moringa Oleifera?

Thank you Dr. Plant School of Natural Health and Wellness for this awesome information!

What is Moringa Oleifera?

Unknown-3 Unknown-2

Moringa oleifera is most nutritious species of the 13 species of the Moringa family, and has earned the honor of being the most nutritiously dense botanical on earth (values listed in appendix A). This botanical has been honored by nearly 100 cultures over time, and because of such has been referred to by more than 60 different names. Moringa oleifera can be an exceptional source of nutrition for all ages and has been endorsed by numerous institutions for daily consumption, and as a mechanism for treating malnutrition; these institutions include Trees for Life Research and the World Health Organization (WHO). The scientific community has recognized Moringa oleifera as the most nutritiously dense botanical for the sheer value and diversity of nutrients, for example:

Dried Moringa leaves contain:
• 10x Vitamin A of Carrots
• 17x Calcium of milk
• 15x Potassium of Bananas
• 25x Iron of Spinach
• 9x Protein of Yogurt

Furthermore, numerous institutions have validated the nutritional value and mechanism of drying the leaves for optimal nutritional enrichment and value. These practices include shade drying the leaves indoors, in moderately controlled temperatures, and away from direct sunlight. The process takes anywhere from 3-10 days to complete depending on humidity.

The health and wellness benefits of Moringa oleifera are carried beyond its nutritional benefit. As Balbir Mathur, President of Trees of Life Research states:

“In a remote village of eastern India, I was approached by an old and dignified practitioner of traditional medicine. He had learned that Trees for Life was helping villagers plant fruit trees, and he had traveled more than a hundred miles to meet me. As we talked, he made an outrageous claim: “The leaves of the Moringa tree prevent 300 diseases.””

The Tree of Life!!

I know I have posted on Moringa Oleifera before, but it is so worth repeating! This amazing botanical superfood has more benefits than you even know!  I am so glad that I have made Moringa a part of my daily health routine!  And, I am so glad to have those that I love including it in theirs!

The moringa tree is often referred to by its advocates as the ‘tree of life’ due to its seemingly miraculous nutritional benefits and sheer versatility. This unassuming, curiously shaped tree is grown as a landscape tree and food source in many parts of the world – although its use as a type of vegetable and nutritive food first developed in countries such as Africa, the Himalayas, China, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. This hardy plant grows in a wide variety of soils ranging from sandy, loamy, and even clayish soils and is resistant to drought and is fast-growing. Due to its hardiness, moringa can be found growing in different climates, and with its adaptability (with the exception that it does not tolerate frost very well), the trees are easily grown and cultivated with very little to no maintenance required. – See more at: http://www.herbs-info.com/moringa.html#sthash.QtMXiNdY.dpuf

However, not all Moringa is created equal….

Thank you Dr. Plant for all of your caring and knowledge!

There are five key points that are critical in ensuring the highest possible quality of Moringa.
1) Species:
There are 13 different species of the Moringa genus, each specie differs widely in it’s nutritional content and value. Moringa oleifera, is claimed to be the most nutritiously dense through numerous scientific publications.
2) Sourcing:
Additionally to Moringa oleifera being the most nutritiously dense of all the Moringa genus, Moringa oleifera’s nutritional value also depends on where it is grown, and when it is harvested. Several studies, including thesis work from prominent universities has shown this. Look for a company that sources their Moringa oleifera from India near the base of the Himalayas, numerous data points to this as the ideal location for maximizing Moringa’s nutritional impact.
3) Preparation:
There are several ways in preparing Moringa oleifera for consumption. The most nutritiously advantageous way is to shade dry the moringa leaves, this helps to naturally preserve and enrich for Moringa’s inherent nutrition. The second, and much more common way, is to dry the moringa in the sun. Though cheaper and quicker the ultra-violet radiation from the sun can crosslink the nutrients rendering them inert for physiological benefit.
4) Blend:
Moringa oleifera is a tree, and with that the nutritional power of the Moringa’s nutrition is found in different parts of the tree. For example, the leaves are enriched in amino acids, while the seeds are enriched in the essential fatty acids, and finally the fruit contains the powerful minerals critical for cell to cell communication. To maximize the nutritional power of Moringa oleifera, one must look to these three components.
5) Manufacturing:
Manufacturing can create havoc on natural products. It is often in this step that many natural botanicals loose their effectiveness. To overcome these challenges one must look to a company whose manufacturing is NSF certified, thereby giving greater confidence that they are adhering to practices that allow for quality found throughout the manufacturing process.
