What are the benefits of taking Moringa?

 

NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa is a safe, natural but powerful way to boost your immune system, well-being and energy levels.

Considered a whole food with bio-available nutrients, organically grown Moringa Oleifera is more easily absorbed into the body and has far fewer potential side effects compared to synthetic vitamin supplements.

What is Moringa?

Moringa (specifically Moringa Oleifera), also known as the Drumstick Tree, and often mis-spelt as muringa, is a fast-growing deciduous tree which can reach a height of up to 12 meters. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant, containing 14 vitamins, 46 antioxidants, 13 minerals, 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids.

In India, where it is thought that Moringa originated, there is a large diversity of wild varieties. This allows the possibility for breeding and cross-breeding programs.

 

What is Canarian Moringa?

NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa is a natural variety of Moringa Oleifera, which over many botanical generations, has gradually and subtly evolved to thrive in the rich volcanic soil, breezy Atlantic island air, unique climate, and to the pH and mineral content of the water galleries fed mainly by snowfall on Mount Teide. The NaturaLeaf plantation, located in the south of Tenerife (Spain), cultivates certified organic Canarian Moringa, guaranteed to be pure and free of contamination.

Why do the Canary Islands produce high quality Moringa?

Over the past ten years, it has become evident that the Canary Islands are the perfect location for the cultivation of Moringa, particularly Moringa Oleifera.  This is due to a combination of the latitude, the favorable hours of sunshine, and the stability of the temperatures which remain relatively constant day-night and throughout the year.

Why is Canarian Moringa so unique?

To sum up, Moringa which has been cultivated in the Canary Islands is practically the only Moringa of European Union origin which is available on the market. So when you buy Moringa, insist upon the best, visit the NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa store and select the highest quality natural Moringa which is available.

What are the health benefits and properties of NaturaLeaf™ Canarian Moringa?

Moringa is a food, not a medicinal herb

 

Moringa Oleifera is, according to the majority of health organizations, classified as a nutritive herb, meaning it is positioned closer to nutritious foods such as broccoli or spinach rather than medicinal herbs such as gingko or ginseng. As such, it can be consumed in high quantities without general risk.

Research of Moringa Oleifera

The medicinal benefits of taking Moringa Oleifera has been explored and confirmed by a plethora of scientific studies and reports, and a substantial part of this research includes controlled studies using human subjects. A comprehensive list of scientific studies and papers can be found in the Moringa Resources section of this website. Although scientific studies have intensified in recent years, only a fraction of the health benefits have so far been investigated, with newly confirmed positive studies being published on a regular basis.

Known benefits of Moringa Oleifera


1. Moringa can reinforce your body’s immunity system.


Moringa Oleifera is considered as one of nature’s most powerful immune-boosting plants, helping to prepare the body’s resistance against viral or bacterial attacks. Also, research indicates that the substantial glucosinolate and niazimicin content of the leaves are potentially powerful in the body’s fight against breast, colon and other forms of cancer, impeding the development of cancer cells.

Several clinical studies are currently underway, investigating the role of Moringa Oleifera to combat COVID-19, by boosting the immune system.


2. Moringa can control stress, nervous disorders, mental fatigue, and combat neural degeneration


Adaptogens are non toxic plants which help to protect the body from the toxic effects of stress by supporting brain health as natural neuro-enhancers and combating neural degeneration. For thousands of years, adaptogens have been used as part of traditional medicine to reduce stress, fatigue and to improve attention and mental endurance. Recent studies suggest that the rich adaptogen properties of Moringa Oleifera help the body and mind to cope with stress. They work as mood balancers, stabilizing the production of several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, and noradrenaline which strongly influence mental behavior patterns such as mood, memory and stimulus-response.

3. Prevent cell damage and reduce the ageing process of skin with NaturaLeaf Moringa


Free radicals are unstable molecules which damage collagen, resulting in wrinkles, skin dryness, fine lines, and premature ageing. Antioxidants are essential for protecting against cell damage, counteracting oxidative stress and the negative effects of free radicals, repairing previous damage and slowing down the ageing process of our skin. Moringa Oleifera contains one of the highest antioxidant contents of any known food. 


4. Use Moringa to reduce and control inflammation

Inflammation occurs when a body naturally responds to long term ageing of joints or injury. Inflammation can be the direct cause of many ailments such as arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and a catalyst of many secondary diseases such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. When the body suffers an injury or infection, inflammation increases as a protective mechanism against trauma. Long-term inflammation often leads to chronic ailments. Moringa Oleifera leaves are known to have concentrated and effective anti-inflammatory properties due to the high concentration of isothiocyanates. Taking NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa daily will help to reduce many forms of inflammation.

This tends to support centuries of traditional medicine where the plant has been used to treat erectile dysfunction. Further studies indicate that testosterone levels in males are optimized through regular consumption of Moringa Oleifera.

Sustained high blood sugar levels often lead to the development of diabetes. This can result heart problems and organ damage. Moringa Oleifera contain leaves contain isothiocyanates, which are known to stabilize the blood sugar levels, also Chlorogenic acid which is known to stabilize blood sugar after eating.

9. Moringa provides protection against Arsenic toxicity

 

In many parts of the world, arsenic contamination is becoming a common yet serious issue. Arsenic has found its way in our systems through many food items, particularly rice. Prolonged exposure to this arsenic can lead to the development of cancer and heart disease. Research indicates that consuming Moringa Oleifera leaves help to neutralize effects of arsenic toxicity.

10. Moringa can protect and regenerate liver cells

 

The liver provides blood detoxification, fat metabolism and nutrient absorption, but it can only function properly when the liver enzymes are stable. Moringa Oleifera leaves are rich in polyphenols which protect against oxidative damage to the liver by stabilizing liver enzymes. Long term use of Moringa Oleifera can also repair oxidative damage.

It is essential that only guaranteed pure Moringa is used if the goal is to protect or regenerate liver cells. NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa is the perfect choice to keep your liver healthy.

Beware of "low cost" Moringa

 

Not all Moringa available on the market has the same quality or safety guarantees of NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa. Contamination through air, soil or water will affect the composition of Moringa Oleifera, as it will with most plants. A 2017 study suggests that air pollution alters the biochemical parameters as well as mineral contents of Moringa. Another study further suggested that Moringa in polluted areas may accumulate trace metals.

Moringa is usually cultivated in developing countries where air, soil and water contamination or pollution are commonplace.  Harvested leaves are often washed with poor quality water which often contains bacteria, microbes or contaminants. The drying and grinding processes are often carried out in areas where the air is contaminated by industry or traffic.

The production of an effective pure, organic product is not possible under these conditions. This is why it is essential to source your Moringa from a fully trusted source.

 

NaturaLeaf is a small, independent business based in the Canary Islands which organically cultivates, harvests, washes and dries the product in areas with zero risk of contamination from industry, non-organic farming or traffic pollution.

No pesticides are used, and the water used to clean the product originates from the natural springs of Mount Teide. The natural volcanic soil allows the cultivation of Moringa without the use of other fertilizers, which adds to the purity of the product. Although the plant takes longer to grow under these circumstances, this extra time allows the plant to establish and accumulate a higher concentration of nutrients compared to plants cultivated by forced fast growth methods. 

We apply the absolute highest standards and quality control to each and every part of the process to ensure that the buyer is guaranteed a pure, effective and safe product.

The NaturaLeaf Guarantee

  • No pesticides are used

  • No soil contamination

  • No air contamination

  • No contaminated or chlorinated water

11. Use Moringa Oleifera to regulate high blood pressure

 

If you have high blood pressure, your blood vessels, heart, brain, kidneys, eyes and other organs are put under strain. Long term high blood pressure can expose you to many serious or even fatal ailments, including heart disease, heart attacks or failure, strokes, kidney disease, arterial disease and vascular dementia. The good news is that by reducing your blood pressure by even a small amount can lower your risk of these health issues.

The clinical study “Consumption of Moringa oleifera Lam Leaves Lowers Postprandial Blood Pressure”, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2019, and included in our Moringa Resources section, indicated that consuming Moringa Oleifera leaa lowering effect on the 2 hours postprandial BP and showed a potential lowering effect on both SBP and DBP. This is due to the rich levels of Quercetin in Moringa Oleifera which is a known antioxidant which lowers blood pressure in many circumstances. This is contradictory to the findings from earlier literature, where claims were made (with no clinical testing on human subjects) that Moringa Oleifera could increase blood pressure.

Taking even moderate amounts of NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa on a daily basis will help you to keep your blood pressure within healthy limits.

12. Naturally detoxify your body with NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa

When our bodies are detoxified, our immunity system increases, we are less susceptible to poisoning from pollution, and our energy levels increase. Numerous clinical studies conclude that Moringa Oleifera naturally detoxifies and cleanses our bodies.

NaturaLeaf Canarian Moringa, particularly in the form of a warm infusion, is a reliable detox method with no negative side effects.

 

13. Use Moringa to help minimize liquid retention
