Moringa oleifera is known around the world as a vegetable with a rich source of protein.  It contains 19 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids.  It has 47 active antioxidants and a profile abundant with phytofunctional nutrients and trace elements. Moringa's acclaimed medicinal properties comes from its rare combination of proteins, vitamins, beta-carotene, as well as zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid, kaempferol and silymarin.  Moringa oleifera is nature's whole-food complex, which makes it easy for your body to recognize, absorb and assimilate.



Vitamin A and its precursor, beta-carotene, are powerful free radical scavengers.  Vitamin A also is necessary for healthy skin and mucous membranes, which are the body’s first line of defense against invading microorganisms and toxins. Intake of this powerful antioxidant promotes a powerful immune response. Beta-carotene and vitamin A destroy carcinogens, aid against heart disease and stroke, and regulates cholesterol levels. 


Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant that works hand in hand with other antioxidants, such as vitamin E.  The cells of the brain and spinal cord, which frequently incur damage from free radicals, can be protected by significant amounts of vitamin C.  Vitamin C acts as a more potent free radical scavenger in the presence of a bioflavonoid called hesperidins.  Apart from these wonderful benefits, Vitamin C is commonly known to power up the immune system against common ailments such as the common cold. 

VITAMIN B1 (Thiamine):

Thiamine enhances circulation and assists in blood formation, carbohydrate metabolism, and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is important for proper digestion.  Thiamine also optimizes cognitive activity and brain function.  It has a positive effect on energy, growth, normal appetite, and learning capacity.  Intake of Thiamine has been linked to muscle toning of the intestines, stomach, and heart.  It also acts as an antioxidant, protecting the body from the degenerative effects of aging, alcohol consumption, and smoking. 

VITAMIN B2 (Riboflavin):

Riboflavin is necessary for red blood cell formation, antibody production, cell respiration, and growth.  It alleviates eye fatigue and is important in the prevention and treatment of cataracts.  It aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.  Together with vitamin A, it maintains and improves the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.  Riboflavin also facilitates the use of oxygen by the cells of the skin, nails, and hair.  Consumption of adequate amounts of riboflavin is important during pregnancy because a deficiency can damage the developing fetus, even though the mother shows no symptoms of deficiency.


The most important functions of iron in the body are the production of hemoglobin, myoglobin and the oxygenation of red blood cells. About 70% of the body's iron can be found in the blood, where it is bound to hemoglobin.  It is essential for many enzymes, including catalase, and is important for overall growth.  Iron is also required for a healthy immune system and for energy production.  Iron deficiency symptoms include anemia, brittle hair, difficulty swallowing, digestive disturbances, dizziness, fatigue and fragile bones.    


Calcium is vital for the formation and maintenance of strong bones, teeth and healthy gums.  It is also important in the maintenance of a regular heartbeat and the transmission of nerve impulses.  Calcium lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent cardiovascular disease.  It is needed for muscule growth, muscle contraction, and the prevention of muscle cramps.  It has been linked to increases in the rate of bone growth and bone mineral density in children.  This important mineral is also essential in blood clotting and helps prevent cancer.  Finally it protects against the development of preeclampsia during pregnancy, the number one cause of maternal death. 

Calcium deficiency can lead to:

  1. Aching joints
  2. Brittle nails
  3. Eczema
  4. Elevated blood cholesterol
  5. Heart palpitations
  6. Hypertension
  7. Insomnia  


Potassium is important for a healthy nervous system and a regular heart rhythm.  It helps prevent stroke, aids in proper muscle contraction and works with sodium to control the body’s water balance.  It also regulates the transfer of nutrients through cell membranes.  Signs of potassium deficiencies include abnormally dry skin, acne, chills, cognitive impairment, constipation, depression, diarrhea, diminished reflex function, edema, nervousness and fluctuations in heartbeat.


Known as the building blocks of muscle, protein is essential for growth and development.  It provides the body with energy, and is needed for the manufacture of hormones, antibodies, enzymes, and tissues.  It also helps maintain the proper acid-alkali balance in the body.  Proteins are typically found in meat, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs and milk.  Although it is important to consume the full range of amino acids, both essential and nonessential, it is not necessary to get them from meat, fish or poultry.  In fact, because of their high fat content, most of those foods should be eaten in moderation.  Fortunately, all the nine essential amino acids that make up proteins can be found in Moringa. Further more, 19 of the 20 common amino acids are found in Moringa. Since Moringa does not have a high content of fat, Moringa is a healthier source of essential and nonessential amino acids.
