Nutrient Dense Green Drinks!

Green drink supplements offer a concentrated dose of nutrients in a quick and convenient powdered or liquid mix. Their shelf-life is much longer than that of fruits and vegetables, making them easy to keep at the office or bring along with you when you’re traveling. These supplements have very high levels of antioxidants, helping to prevent degenerative disease and perhaps even slowing the aging process. They also help to alkalize our bodies, promote proper cell function, and eliminate toxins.

Moringa is a green drink that has a long list of medicinal uses reaching back thousands of years. It has been used to treat intestinal parasites, infections, anemia, ulcers, wounds, hypertension, gastrointestinal discomfort, and has other beneficial purposes. In the late 90s, an African aid organization tested moringa leaf powder to see if it could help African women and the infants they were carrying during pregnancy. By supplementing with moringa powder, the women recovered from anemia faster post-pregnancy and the babies had higher birth weights as well as better overall health. It also helped with milk production for women who were breast feeding.

There have been some studies on the effects of moringa, but mainly in test tubes and on animals so far. Specific phytochemicals from moringa have been reported to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and possess antibacterial characteristics.

One phytochemical identified in moringa is benzyl isothiocyanate, which has been shown to have beneficial antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown that it can be effective when applied topically for skin infections or taken internally as an antibiotic. It may also be useful to help eradicate H. pylori, the prevalent bacteria responsible for gastritis and ulcers. In small clinical trials, Isothiocyanates were shown to balance blood sugar levels and if paired with flavonoids and phenolic acids, they can help to decrease inflammation.

Moringa also lowered blood sugar levels in diabetics and was shown to have potent antioxidative properties in a study with postmenopausal women. In an animal study, moringa was shown to lower cholesterol as well as statin medications. By binding to toxins in the body, it can also help with detoxification.

Scientists have only investigated a fraction of the many reputed health benefits of moringa. So far, they have found that it is very rich in nutrients, healthy antioxidants, bioactive plant compounds, and has been shown to lower blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and cholesterol as well as decreasing inflammation. Get the nutrients you need with convenience and discover why moringa has been praised for its health benefits for millennia!
