About Moringa Leaf Powder

In today’s modern lifestyle it is essential to provide the body with high quality foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes and antioxidants

Moringa Leaf Powder is a super nutrient dense plant food that is jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes and antioxidants.

It is part of a nutrition-based lifestyle that recognises that good health is closely linked with good nutrition and avoidance of toxic ‘foods’.

Moringa Leaf Powder is not a medication/medicine to be taken in any particular ‘dosage’.

It is a well established fact that an adequate supply of High Quality Nutrients to the body is strongly correlated with the optimal functioning (i.e. all the metabolic and other functions required for that body to exist) of that body.

We believe that good health results from making informed decisions about nutrition. What not to eat, what to eat and how to eat it.

The following figures reflect Gram-for-Gram Comparisons with Moringa Leaf Powder:

0
x more Protein than Yogurt

Proteins, the building blocks of our bodies, are made of amino acids. Usually, only animal products such as meat, eggs and dairy contain all of the essential amino acids. Amazingly, Moringa leaves also contain all the essential amino acids required for Human Protein Synthesis.         

0
x more Potassium than Bananas

Potassium is essential for the brain and nerves. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. Moringa leaves are even better.

0
x more Vitamin A than Carrots

Vitamin A acts as a shield against diseases of the eyes, skin and heart, diarrhea, and many other ailments. Carrots are very high in vitamin A, but Moringa leaves are even higher.

0
x more Calcium than Milk

Calcium builds strong bones and teeth, and helps prevent osteoporosis. Milk provides a lot of calcium, but Moringa leaves provide even more.

0
x the Iron of Spinach

Iron is necessary for many functions in the body including formation of haemoglobin, brain development and function, regulation of body temperature and muscle activity. Lack of iron directly affects the immune system; it diminishes the number of T-Cells and the production of antibodies. Besides haemoglobin, iron is a component of myoglobin, the cytochromes, catalase and certain enzyme systems. Iron is essential for binding oxygen to the blood cells. The central function of iron is oxygen transport and cell respiration. Spinach is high in Iron, Moringa has even more.

Organic Nutrients for Mothers

High bioavailablily for growing children and nursing mothers

Growing bodies need nutrients, and moringa is the most nutrient-dense plant ever studied. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder gives children the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong, in an easily digestible form with high absorption rates. Lactating mothers can also use Moringa to increase the nutrient content in their breast milk. Moringa can increase the natural calcium levels of mother’s milk by an amazing 25%.

The Role of Vitamins in the Human Body

Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder contains high levels of Vitamin A (beta carotene), Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Vitamin B7 (Biotin), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol), Vitamin E (Tocopherol) and Vitamin K.

Vitamin A (beta carotene) is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of a specific metabolite, the light-absorbing molecule retinal. This molecule is absolutely necessary for both scotopic vision and colour vision. Vitamin A also functions in a very different role – as an irreversibly oxidized form retinoic acid, which is an important hormone-like growth factor for epithelial and other cells.

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) helps fuel the body by converting blood sugar into energy. It keeps the mucous membranes healthy and is essential for the nervous system and cardiovascular and muscular functions.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is required for a wide variety of cellular processes. Like the other B vitamins, it plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins. It is the central component of the cofactors FAD and FMN, and is therefore required by all “Flavoproteins”.

Vitamin B3 (niacin), like all B complex vitamins, is necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. It also helps the nervous system function properly. Niacin helps the body produce sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body. It is effective in improving circulation and reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine and for myelin formation. Pyridoxine deficiency in adults principally affects the peripheral nerves, skin, mucous membranes, and the blood cell system. In children, the central nervous system (CNS) is also affected. Deficiency can occur in people with uremia, alcoholism, cirrhosis, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption syndromes, congestive heart failure (CHF), and in those taking certain medications.

Vitamin B7 (biotin) has vital metabolic functions. Without biotin as a co-factor, many enzymes do not work properly, and serious complications can occur, including varied diseases of the skin, intestinal tract, and nervous system. Biotin can help address high blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes, and is helpful in maintaining healthy hair and nails, decreasing insulin resistance and improving glucose tolerance, and possibly preventing birth defects. It plays a role in energy metabolism, and has been used to treat alopecia, cancer, Crohn’s disease, hair loss, Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathy, Rett syndrome, seborrheic dermatitis, and vaginal candidiasis.

Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say. It may not be the cure for the common cold (though it’s thought to help prevent more serious complications), but the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and wrinkles.

Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the gut and maintaining adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and prevent hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect the elderly from osteoporosis. Vitamin D has other roles in human health, including modulation of neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of inflammation.

Vitamin E describes a family of eight antioxidants, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Alpha-tocopherol (a-tocopherol) is the only form of vitamin E that is actively maintained in the human body and is therefore, the form of vitamin E found in the largest quantities in the blood and tissue. Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, protects vitamin A and essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body cells and prevents breakdown of body tissues.

Vitamin K is needed for blood to properly clot, and for the liver to make blood clotting factors, including factor II (prothrombin), factor VII (proconvertin), factor IX (thromboplastin component), and factor X (Stuart factor). Other clotting factors that depend on vitamin K are protein C, protein S, and protein Z. Deficiency of vitamin K or disturbances of liver function (for example, severe liver failure) may lead to deficiencies of clotting factors and excess bleeding.

Amino Acids: The Foundation of Our Body

There are 18 different amino acids, or protein types, that are the building blocks for a healthy body. Non-essential amino acids are proteins that the body can synthesize by itself, provided there is enough nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen available. Essential amino acids are proteins supplied by the food you eat. They must be consumed in your diet as the human body either cannot make them or cannot make them in sufficient quantities to meet your body’s needs.

Proteins act as enzymes, hormones, and antibodies for your immune system. They maintain fluid balance and keep the levels of acid and alkalinity in check. Proteins also transport substances such as oxygen, vitamins, and minerals to target cells throughout the body. Structural proteins, such as collagen and keratin, are responsible for the formation of bones, teeth, hair, and the outer layer of skin and they help maintain the structure of blood vessels and other tissues.

Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions without being changed in the process.

Hormones (chemical messengers) are proteins that travel to one or more specific target tissues or organs, and many have important regulatory functions. Insulin, for example, plays a key role in regulating the amount of glucose in the blood.

The human body also uses protein to manufacture antibodies (giant protein molecules), which combat invading antigens. Antigens are usually foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses that have entered the body and could potentially be harmful. Immunoproteins, also called immunoglobulins or antibodies, defend your body from possible attack from these invaders by binding to the antigens and inactivating them.

If these critical components for a healthy body are not provided as part of a healthy diet, your body will look for other sources for them. This can include the breakdown of your organs, leading to chronic problems such as liver and kidney problems, diabetes, and heart disease.

Consuming Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder will provide your body with a rich source of these essential nutrients.

More about the nutritional wonders of Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder

Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is well researched to be one of the most nutrient dense plant foods on earth. For this reason the Moringa Oleifera tree which produces the Pure African Moringa Leaf powder is most often referred to as “The Miracle Tree”.

Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is considered a complete food because it is an all-natural rich source of bio-available essential nutrients viz. proteins, minerals, vitamins, anti-oxidants and enzymes required for a healthy body.

Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is also one of the few plant derived foods on earth that contain all eight essential amino acids required by the human body to synthesise complete proteins.

All the essential nutrients contained in Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder are available in their naturally occurring complex forms as opposed to the simple isolates available in over-the-counter ‘vitamin’ and/or mineral tablets.

For example Vitamin C in it’s natural form is a complex compound consisting of 13 components including Ascorbic acid. Vitamin C that one buys in pill form in supermarkets is an isolate of pure Ascorbic acid only and is often derived from genetically modified soy beans.

Vitamins in their natural state are complex structures that combine a variety of enzymes, co-enzymes, antioxidants, trace elements, activators and many other unknown or undiscovered factors all working together to enable this vitamin complex to produce their intended biologic effects on the body.

The food factors that influence the absorption of nutrients relate not only to the nature of the nutrients themselves, but also their interaction with each other and with the non-absorbable components of food.

In nature vitamins are never isolated: they are always present in the form of full spectrum food mineral-vitamin-complexes and NOT isolated individual molecular compounds. This renders so-called mineral and synthetic vitamin pill supplements practically useless.

Synthetic vitamins lack the transporters and co-factors associated with naturally-occurring vitamins because they have been “isolated.”

Synthetic vitamins are also devoid of necessary trace minerals and must use the body’s own mineral reserves which may lead to dangerous mineral deficiencies.

When synthetic, or incomplete vitamins are introduced into the body, the body attempts to “build” a complete vitamin complex by adding the missing factors that it knows should be there, specifically minerals and other vitamin co-factors.

This “building” process depletes the body’s nutritional reserves, creating an overall deficiency. The body has a natural intelligence that is always directing its efforts toward wholeness.

Consuming Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder to provide one’s body with full spectrum bio-available vitamins and minerals will avoid any deficiencies and greatly contribute to the body’s natural ability to maintain and repair itself.

One must also consider the origin of manufactured synthetic vitamins and minerals.

For example:

  • Vitamin C is synthetically derived from hydrogenated sugar processed with acetone to eventually produce pure ascorbic acid which is then sold as ‘Vitamin C’
    • Ascorbic Acid is only one component of the vitamin C molecule (the outer shell).
    • The complete Vitamin C molecule contains amongst other things Rutin, Bioflavonoids (vitamin P), Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase and Ascorbinogen. Ascorbic acid is useless without these components.
  • Most synthetic vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, and chemically processed hydrogenated sugar (plus sometimes industrially processed fish oils), with other acids and industrial chemicals (such as formaldehyde) used to process them

Vitamins and mineral absorption can only takes place when all co-factors and components of the entire mineral-vitamin complex are present and working together.

Vitamins that are found naturally in whole foods like Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder come with all of their necessary components.

Many people eat mostly cooked and/or processed foods which are devoid of particularly vitamins and enzymes. The food will still retain its minerals but unfortunately much of the minerals will not be able to be absorbed since each mineral type requires the presence of other minerals and vitamins in able for the body to absorb them effectively.

For the body to be able to properly process and utilise the food effectively a whole myriad of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, etc) must be present. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder contains all of these nutrients.

For example:

  • Proteins are complex molecules composed of building blocks called amino acids. To break down proteins in the food that one eats into their free amino acid components (which is essential) there have to be enzymes present. Digestive enzymes are destroyed by processing and cooking. Adding raw enzymes will vastly improve the digestibility of the available proteins which will enhance the nutritional value of the cooked food. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is a rich natural source of digestive enzymes.

If proteins contained in the food that one eats are not effectively broken down into their separate amino acid components then amino acid ‘clumps’ results. These ‘clumps’ are called circulating immune complexes (CIC’s) which are absorbed through the gut and enter the blood stream where they are seen as foreign invaders by the immune system.

The CIC’s cannot be utilised by the body to build proteins and settle as they are in muscle tissue, brain tissue, joints, organs and other sites where they are ‘attacked’ by the immune system which also causes inflammation to the site where they settle causing tremendous accumulative damage to those areas over time.

This may explain many of the aches and pains people so often feel. Few people realise the importance of complete protein digestion and the role enzymes play in ensuring this. This is why it is a good idea to have Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder during or after any cooked meal (e.g. meat) to ensure that CIC’s are not formed. To build proteins the body requires eight essential amino acids. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder contains all eight.

Most vegetable foods that one eats e.g. beans, lentils, etc. do not contain all eight essential amino acids. A chain is as strong as its weakest link as they say. Consuming Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder with or after a meal will ensure that any missing amino acid components are present thus enabling proper protein synthesis. This is particularly important for Vegetarian diets.

  • the same goes for carbohydrates. With raw digestive enzymes the carbohydrate molecules can be broken down into simpler components and more low GI energy can be extracted from the meal thus once again enhancing the nutritional value of food. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is a rich source of digestive enzymes.
  • to absorb minerals there must be free amino acids available for the minerals to attach to. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is packed with amino acids.
  • To absorb calcium there must be a concentration of magnesium within a certain ratio. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is rich in calcium and magnesium in the optimum ratio.
  • Vitamins require the presence of certain elements for absorption. Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder is rich in all of these elements. For example:
    • Vitamin A requires Zinc
    • Vitamin B requires phosphorus
    • Vitamin C requires the presence of Iron and Copper
    • Vitamin D requires calcium
    • Vitamin E requires Manganese. Vitamin E works closely with the mineral selenium to provide its health promoting, anti-oxidative effect.

Real, natural vitamins, minerals and enzymes work closely together as co-factors for each other’s efficacy. If one part is missing, or is fractionated, or is in the incorrect form or the incorrect amount, entire chains of essential metabolic processes cannot and will not proceed normally.

And that is why it is a logical choice to use Pure African Moringa Leaf Powder!
