Moringa is a food not a drug. Even though it has healing properties, super packed nutrition, and lots of health benefits, it is still a food.
Almost every vegetable has healing properties depending on the nutrients it is dense it. Garlic is a food as well. Onions have healing properties. Since it is a food, I cannot tell you to eat 5 carrots or 4 apples to get a desired effect. There are suggestions that you should eat for instance 4 servings of green vegetables per day or two servings of fresh fruit....but these are suggestions.
When you go from fast food to raw veggies, you change the way your bowel works. You may have a little constipation or loose stools until your gut gets accustomed to the changes you are making.
Dark green leafy vegetables contain minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium. They are packed with vitamins such as Vitamin K, C, E, and B vitamins. They provide phytonutrients such as beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and some contain Omega-3-fatty acids.
What does Vitamin K do? It is a very important vitamin that has many functions including regulating blood clotting, protecting your bones from osteoporosis, regulates the inflammatory process, help to prevent diabetes and atherosclerosis. A cup or two of green leafy vegetables provides this needed Vitamin K.
Vitamin K is fat-soluble so that means you need to apply salad dressing to your greens or perhaps saute it briefly in oil, so your body absorbs it.
Chlorophyll is what makes green veggies and Moringa leaves green. Chlorophyll helps the body to cleanse itself of toxins, fight infections, and promote the health of every body system. Because it does help cleanse the system, when you add in lots of greens into your diet, you may get a cleansing effect that includes loose stools for the first few days. Chlorophyll also thins the blood when taken in concentrated amounts. You can buy liquid chlorophyll by itself. It is quite refreshing when you add a tablespoon to a glass of cold water.
Moringa leaves are exceptional in that they contain Iron, protein, Calcium, minerals, antioxidants and those nutrients are concentrated in this beautiful green food. You can put lots of Moringa leaves in your salad or a few....it is up to you and your taste buds. Moringa is a great food for vegetarians because of its iron, protein, and calcium content. It is hard to find a vegetable that contains all that you need to be healthy. It is a survival tree with leaves that contain all the needed nutrients to stay alive and be healthy.
It is Suggested that a tablespoon of the powder will give you a good helping of the tremendous nutritional benefits that Moringa leaves contain.
In reality, it is up to you whether you take a teaspoon or a tablespoon a day or one cup or two cups of the leaves. It is a food that is good for you and can only improve your dietary regimen of nutrition.
If you are taking it for a specific reason, such as to see if it improves your blood pressure.....you just have to experiment. In this country, I cannot tell you to take a certain amount to lower blood pressure. That is prescribing medicine without a license. I can get sued for telling you that. I can get all sorts of officials from the FDA to the AMA down on my back legally for giving you advice that like. There are research studies you can investigate that show the positive effects on various health conditions so it is up to you to do that investigation.
You can get mad at me all you want because I will not give you medical advice on the phone, but that is what your government has created. Here is the United States you cannot say that without legal problems. The other problem is this, I don't know anything about you. I have no idea of your family health history, your personal health history, your medical problems, your lab tests, your diet, your life style, or habits. You cannot know how to help a person, without that information. How do I know what prescription drugs you might be taking that impact your health, your weight, and the effect that any herbal program might have on you. I cannot give you medical advice for all these reasons.
I have had three calls this week that has prompted me to write this article. You need to take control of your health, by investigating the research that is published on Moringa and other herbs. Not the ones published by organizations against alternative medicine therapies but research that is unbiased and honest.
So again folks, Moringa is a food with many benefits both health and medicinal. If is safe to eat everyday and there is no amount that is toxic to your system. It is given to pregnant women in third world countries to help them boost their nutrition, support milk production, and give babies added nutrition in their baby food. In saying that, some women during pregnancy cannot eat certain foods because they get gas or an upset stomach. When pregnant at times, the same foods you eat before pregnancy, may have a different digestive effect when pregnant. So keep this is mind. You must learn to listen to your own body.
I hope this answers your questions.
