About Moringa Powder Organic
Moringa powder has been used by ancient cultures in their diet for mental alertness and healthy skin. The leaves, pods, seeds, gums, bark and flowers of Moringa are used across the world to relieve mineral and vitamin deficiencies, support a healthy cardiovascular system, promote normal blood-glucose levels, neutralize free radicals, provide excellent support of the body’s anti-inflammatory mechanisms, enrich anemic blood and support immune system. It also improves eyesight, mental alertness and bone strength.
Our organic moringa powder is a superfood made from its crushed leaves which are packed with protein—3 grams of protein per tablespoon—and are better than legumes because they contain all the essential amino acids, necessary for muscle repair, energy production, and mood regulation.
Storage and shelf life
Moringa powder should be stored in a cool, dry space away from humidity and light. Light can destroy nutrients in the powder, and humidity can make it mildew or mold. When stored properly, the powder can last for two or more years, but they can last longer; that’s simply the time when the powder starts losing potency.

Or, try baking it into treats like zucchini bread, or mixed into your favorite energy balls. Moringa-infused teas are also common. Daily dosage should be limited to the equivalent of 70 grams of moringa leaves per day or 11 teaspoons of moringa powder.
