Moringa: More Powerful Than Turmeric

Moringa: More Powerful Than Turmeric

Turmeric may almost be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence… almost. There’s a new superfood on the block, and rumour has it it’s giving the yellow spice a real run for its money.

Moringa: More Powerful Than Turmeric

Turmeric may have been the big man on campus in days gone by, but recently there’s been a new superfood contender that has stepped into the ring.

Moringa oleifera, also known as horseradish tree, ben tree, or drumstick tree, is a small tree from India, Pakistan, and Nepal that has been used for generations in Eastern countries to treat and prevent diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, anemia, arthritis, liver disease, and respiratory, skin, and digestive disorders. Touted as an even more powerful inflammation fighter than turmeric, health food experts are putting their money on it being the next big thing in the world of health.

Dubbed the “world’s most useful tree” by scientists, moringa’s nutrition profile is now becoming rather impressive. It has twice the protein of spinach and three times as much iron, which is quite the achievement. According to the journal Ecology of Food and Nutrition, it has impressive amounts of calcium, potassium, and vitamin A. So it’s fair to say that Moringa is definitely a good choice when it comes to looking after yourself.

Not only is it great for you, but it tastes good too. Its seeds are slightly sweet, and its ground leaves are nutty and grassy like tea. Nobody is wasting any time in getting this superhero into production; chances are that you’ll be seeing it pop up everywhere in nutrition bars, kombucha, juices and protein powders. You’ll even find it in chip form, ready for your next movie night.

It’s even making its way into beauty products, in the form of moringa oil (which can be a fair-trade ingredient) and word on the street is that it’s just as good for your skin as it is for your insides.

Turmeric better watch its back. Moringa is hot on its heels.
