Also known as the “Miracle Tree”, Moringa is considered one of the most ecologically viable species. Although every part of this tree is edible, the tender and velvety leaves particularly, are drily roasted, grounded, and made into a powder. Loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein, and antioxidants, Juka’s Organics’ moringa powder is a powerhouse herbal supplement. Many people use moringa powder as a nutritional supplement due to its wide range of health benefits, from reducing asthma to helping with losing weight. To get the most nutritional benefit out of this powder, you can swallow the powder directly or mix it with your favorite drinks or foods. But, make sure you don’t cook it, as heat can make the powder reduce many of its nutrients. Here are different ways you can consume moringa powder to enjoy its nutritional benefits:
Swallowing Dry Powder
While moringa leaves and powder are safe to consume, it is always advisable to consult your physician before starting a new herbal supplement. Here are a few ways how you can effectively consume dry organic moringa powder:
- Although some people can take up to 1 tablespoon (18 gm) of dry moringa powder per day, it is generally recommended that you start with no more than 1 – 2 teaspoons (6 – 12 gm) a day.
- Place the moringa powder under your tongue, as it will get absorbed more quickly into your body. Make sure to avoid breathing the powder as you do so. Also, be prepared for its earthy and radish-like taste.
- Then, take a gulp of water and swallow the powder down your throat with it. Take a few other sips of water to wash down the remaining bits of moringa powder in your mouth.
With Food and Drinks:
You can add organic moringa powder into your favorite tea or smoothie to get all their nutritional benefits. Here are a few ways to incorporate it:
Take a cup of cold or lukewarm water and stir one teaspoon of moringa powder into it, till it dissolves mostly. Pour the tea into a strainer or cheesecloth to strain it into a cup. If you don’t like the taste, you can add honey or lemon to the tea. While you can make hot tea with organic moringa powder, as mentioned above, heat will break down many nutrients in it.
A smoothie is a great way to reduce the radish-like taste of the moringa powder. You can add the powder to any smoothie, but smoothies of green kale or spinach work especially well with the earthy taste of moringa powder. You can either sprinkle the powder over the ingredients before blending them or you can stir it into the smoothie you just made.
- Salad and Raw Food:
You can add moringa powder directly onto the food, but avoid cooking it. You can add it to raw foods like salad, yogurt, peanut butter, hummus, etc. You can also stir it into foods that are already cooked and cooled, such as oatmeal.
