1. Weight loss
Women who engage in “binge eating” or stuffing themselves are often deficient in
magnesium, B vitamins, chromium and zinc. Take note, which I will address in our
weight loss article coming soon, the human body must “release weight” in order to
loose weight. The body cannot loose anything, you simply have to know how release
things psychologically and physically! Going back, this buffet eating style usually
leads to up and down weight even though you may exercise. Well guess what, the
magical Moringa plant in the form of its powder contains B-1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 12
and. B-12 as you may know is crucial for the nervous system to name a few.
Individuals and particularly women taking Moringa leaf extract and leaf powder often
report weight loss. This beneficial effect could be due to many factors due to the
natural detoxing effect Moringa has, which will eliminate excess water weight, feces,
plaque and fat. To be more specific, it is the anti-inflammatory and diuretic effect
helps reduce water retention. Furthermore, high fiber content in Moringa reduces
fat absorption in the gut. It is also found that the reduction in insulin resistance may
prevent excess fat accumulation around the body. Last, Glutamic acid, an amino
acid in Moringa’s protein, helps in curbing sugar cravings.
2. The importance of vitamins and minerals for women
Most people in their 40’s and 50’s and especially women, need several different
vitamins and minerals for performing the normal functions of the body. These
middle-aged women suffer a lot of health disorders because of the physiological
and enzymatic changes in the body. Moringa helps them in many ways and aids
them in crossing this stage with ease and joy. Moringa host numerous vitamins
and minerals from A to Z. Moringa is known for being nature’s only multi-vitamin
herb on the planted, offering more nutrients in one single plant than any herb in the
world. In the Ayurvedic text of India, Moringa is credited for healing over 300 diseases!
3. Beauty: Hair, Skin & Nails
Moringa is rich in Vitamin A and will contribute to serious hair growth as a result. Zinc,
which is abundant in Moringa, will stimulate hair growth through boosting immune
function. Hair loss can also take place when the diet is deficient in the proper amount
of B vitamins, in particular vitamin B6, folic acid and inositol. For hair growth, Moringa
also contains numerous B-rich vitamins such as B1,B2,B3,B4,B6,B7,B12,B14, and
some of B17. Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, is another powerful nutrient in
Moringa, and is crucial to hair growth. Vitamin E also helps deliver hair growth because
it increases blood circulation to the scalp. Zeatin, another potent antioxidant found
in Moringa, delays aging by its influence on cell division and antioxidant properties.
Last there is Natural sulfur, which is Moringa contains is another key mineral that helps
grow the hair. Organic sulfur, which is different that inorganic sulfur, is a key mineral in
the foods we eat such as fruit and vegetables. Sulfur holds the nickname
“beauty mineral” for a reason. This is because organic sulfur grows the hair, nails,
beautifies the skin and slows down the overall aging process. Other minerals that
Moringa contains such as manganese, calcium and copper can promote hair strand
formation, hair repair and hair growth.
4. Sexual Health
Niacin helps the body produce sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands
and other parts of the bod The high Vitamin E content, present in Moringa, is also
helpful for Vaginal dryness and one study revealed that just 400 IU of Vitamin E taken
per day for between 1 and 4 months helped women drastically.
An inflammatory reaction to injuries is an integral part of the natural healing mechanism
of the body, however, chronic inflammation, usually comes damage inflicted by free
radicals, can have a damaging effect on our metabolic system. Heart disease and
metabolic disorders like insulin resistance and diabetes are thought to be the result
of chronic inflammation and metabolic disorders. Moringa help tremendously with
inflammation though a study performed by a French researcher published in the
Dakar Medical journal of Senegal found that Moringa roots contains some impressive
anti-inflammatory properties and could possibly help heal acute inflammatory
conditions like bronchitis, diabetes, mucus, and rheumatoid arthritis to name a few.
Menopause is a crucial stage in every woman’s life. Though it is a painful stage, they
can overcome the symptoms of menopause with the help of proper nutrients. A
well-balanced nutritional supplement is essential during the menopause, as it enables
the body to adjust automatically to the hormonal changes, naturally maintaining
Estrogen from the adrenal glands and fat deposits. During Menopause, the body
needs extra Iron and Calcium to make up for the blood lost. As a result of irregular
blood flow and hormonal changes, women feel tired and stressful at times.
During a regular menstrual cycle, blood loss can be look upon as simply dead liquid
flesh flowing out of the vagina during the times of between menses and ovulation also
know as the follicular phase. Crucial mineral nutrients in the blood are lost during
these cycles such as iron, calcium. Moringa leaf Powder, with 2 times more calcium
than milk and 4 times more Vitamin A than Carrots, helps to ward off the symptoms of
menopause and menstrual cycles. The high Vitamin C content of Moringa and
Bioflavonoids such as Quercetin, present in Moringa Leaf powder, is understood to
reduce hot flushes. In addition, the potent iron content (25 times more than spinach)
helps reduce and revitalize blood loss in addition to creating regular period flows.
7. Cramps & PMS
Next, over 60% of women suffer from menstrual cramps and PMS. Understand that
cramps are different from PMS however, women suffer from both. Moringa can help
with the symptoms of feeling weak and tired because it contains 3 times the
potassium in bananas. In the case of mood swings, the powerful B-12 elements in
Moringa will calm the nervous system and bring a peace of mind along with all the
other vital nutrients it provides. Moringa will also strengthen body and immune system
when taken during menses resulting in reduced pain and cramps.
8. Bone Strength/Iron
Menopause leaves women with weakened bones and renders them highly susceptible
for Osteoporosis. The typical human body lacks the suggested daily intake value of
Calcium, the body will take calcium from the bones and teeth. This will then produce
weak and brittle bones. Moringa with it’s high Calcium content, comes as a solution
for this problem. Since the Calcium present in Moringa is 100% provided and
obtained from the natural plant, this is easily absorbed into the body. Last, many
women are deficient in iron due to blood loss from menstrual flow. Moringa contains
roughly 25 times more iron that spinach. There is no longer a need to chew on ice as
many women resort to this due to iron deficiency.
Researches are have been advocating that one of the major causes for depression is
the absence of proper nutrients in the diet. This nutrient deficiency is believed to
trigger hormonal imbalances, which leads to depression. Depression is becoming
common among US women usually nearing thier 40’s are in high risk of depression
and sleeping disorders.
Depression can be solved most times with the proper supply of nutrients to the body.
Incidentally, Moringa, which is loaded with Vitamin A, B, C, E , Potassium, Calcium,
several flavonoids and nutrients. Therefore if you consume Moringa daily, it could
address depression in addition to your overall health issues. More specifically, the
high magnesium amounts in Moringa is a crucial mineral for bones in the
post-menopause stage. Magnesium is popular for functioning as a “Tranquillizer”
to address problems such as Anxiety, irritability and other mood swings.
10. Breast milk production
For all the health benefits Moringa has to offer is breast milk production. The East
Indian communities, particularly in economically weaker areas love using Moringa
because of the tons of nutrients it provides breast feeding mothers, nourishing the
milk to its fullest potential. This is crucial for infants in the first year of life as any
infant depends on their immune system being built and strengthened through their
mother’s milk. This is one of the reasons why in Dakar, Senegal, the world church
organization has declared Moringa as the national cure for malnutrition in infants,
kids, and adults. Furthermore, the high calcium content of Moringa leaves could be
an obvious reason for the increased breast milk production which contains 2 times
more calcium than dairy milk.
