MORINGA BENEFITS: TOP 10 HEALTH & BEAUTY BENEFITS July 19 2017
1. REDUCTION OF TIREDNESS & FATIGUE
At any given time, 1 in 5 people feel unusually tired, and 1 in 10 have prolonged fatigue, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the UK¹.
A single serving of Aduna Moringa Powder (10g or 2-3 teaspoons) provides:
- Iron: 46.8% of your daily requirement (NRV)
- Magnesium: 19.1% of NRV
- Vitamin A: 32.5% of NRV
Iron and magnesium are both essential for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue in the body, and vitamin A supports the metabolism of iron² ensuring a greater uptake. Adding moringa to your daily routine is an effective, natural way to prevent tiredness and fatigue.
The rich iron content of moringa powder also makes it ideal for vegan, vegetarians and those suffering from anaemia.
Aduna Moringa Powder has been heralded by Vogue magazine as "redefining beauty from within."
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, minimizing the aging 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 aging.
The skin benefits of moringa are so exceptional that Moringa Powder is one of the first food items to ever be sold in the beauty hall of prestigious London department store Liberty.
One of the best moringa benefits is its super immune-boosting powers. Maintaining a healthy immune system is essential for helping our bodies stave off infections and illnesses. Moringa Oleifera leaves are an extremely rich source of:
- Iron: 46.8% of NRV
- Vitamin A: 32.5% of NRV
Both of which are essential for the normal function of the immune system.
Many studies have been done about moringa's potential as an anti-cancer agent. Moringa leaves have been shown to have beneficial properties in the fight against both breast and colon cancer cells⁴ and research is ongoing.
4. MUSCLE GROWTH
Moringa oleifera leaves are almost 25% protein, which is unusually high for a plant. AMoringa Powder contains 9 essential amino acids making it a complete source of protein, supporting the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. The high protein content of moringa makes it particularly beneficial for vegans and vegetarians who can struggle to get a sufficient protein supply.
Recent research has shown that those eating a diet rich in plant proteins can reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). A 19 year study by the University of Eastern Finland has found that replacing just 5 grams of meat-based protein consumption a day with a plant-based source, could reduce risk of T2D onset by as much as 18%⁵.
One of the key moringa benefits is its high magnesium content. Magnesium is essential for normal psychological function and the normal functioning of the nervous system. This super-mineral has been named by Psychology Today magazine as "The Original Chill Pill... an old home remedy for anxiety, apathy, depression, headaches, insecurity, irritability, restlessness... and sulkiness."
- A single serving of moringa powder contains 19.1% of your magnesium NRV helping fight stress and keep a sense of calm.
Moringa powder is a rich source of calcium (29.8% NRV) which contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes.

Having healthy eyes and normal vision is something that can often be taken for granted. It requires the right nutrition on order to maintain normal function. Moringa is a rich source of vitamin A (32.5% NRV per serving) which contributes to normal vision.
