Moringa is one of my favourite superfoods right now as it has so many great benefits and is easy to put into a drink or a green smoothie.
Facts on moringa:

This incredible powder helps the body to fight inflammation and can help prevent diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and arthritis.
Taking Moringa is linked to a decrease of plaque formation in the arteries and preliminary results of certain tests have even shown it may be able to treat Alzheimer’s Disease. The leaves and flowers of Moringa contain a high concentration of polyphenols which protect the liver against oxidation and damage and can also be effective if you have a wound or cut, as can reduce clotting time and help heal skin damage.
A lot of people get into taking this product because of weight loss purposes, and yes, it is very helpful, but it’s not a quick fix. It is, however, very effective. It won’t cause you to lose water weight or trick you into thinking you’re losing weight, only to find it comes right back the second you stop taking the supplement/superfood and it won’t cause dramatic weight loss results instantly.
Instead, it fills you up with insoluble fibre that prevents constipation and promotes a healthy digestive system. This high fibre content also slows food absorption, keeps your blood sugar regulated, and makes you feel fuller for longer periods of time.
Aside from being a plant that is super-low in calories and high in nutrients like vitamins A, C and manganese, Moringa contains an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid. This antioxidant balances your blood sugar and acts as a fat burner, which over time could help you to become the weight you are comfortable with.
Experimenting with superfoods is an exciting way to gain more control over your health and wellbeing and can give you great results regarding more energy and mental clarity.
