Recipes Using Moringa Leaf Powder

Description
Made from the naturally dried leaf of the moringa tree, moringa powder is one of the most nutrient-dense raw whole foods on the planet.

 

Nutrition Benefits
It is jam-packed with skin-loving vitamins including:

  • Vitamin A: 32.5% of NRV
  • Vitamin E: 16.9% of NRV

Vitamin A is essential for healthy, radiant skin and vitamin E protects cells from oxidative stress helping fight the signs of ageing.
Moringa also has one of the highest antioxidant contents of any food. With an ORAC value of 157,000³, it has 6x the antioxidants of goji berries and comparable levels to the antioxidant powerhouse matcha.
Antioxidants are essential for protecting, repairing and preventing cell damage, minimising the ageing process of the skin in the long-term. They help counteract oxidative stress and the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen causing skin dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing.
Moringa powder also contains good amounts of many vital B-complex vitamins such as folates, vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), thiamin (vitamin B-1), riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and niacin. Much of these vitamin functions as co-enzymes in carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism.
Furthermore, moringa powder is one of the finest sources of minerals like calcium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, selenium, and magnesium. Iron alleviates anemia. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization. Zinc plays a vital role in hair growth, spermatogenesis, and skin health.

 

Culinary
To enjoy a delicious moringa drink, simply take half a teaspoon of moringa powder, add a teaspoon of honey, a little squeeze of lemon, mix them together and add water. You can also drop a spoon of moringa into your soup after cooking. Just enough moringa not to spoil the original soup taste! You can always add it to smoothies too.
