Known for its tremendous health and wellness benefits, the use of Moringa in the human diet dates back centuries.

This green superfood is packed with essential vitamins and minerals and possesses antifungal, antiviral, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Aduna Moringa contains 5 essential vitamins and minerals, 25% plant protein and 24% fibre. 

Its delicious green and spinach taste make it a welcomed addition to every diet. You can come up with creative ways to include Moringa into your diet as you will; here are 5 easy ways we have thought up to add Moringa to your diet. 

HOW TO USE MORINGA

There’s one rule to adding Moringa to your diet; use as you would any other green herb or seasoning. You can:

  • Sprinkle 

Since Moringa is often found in powdered form, the easiest way to consume it would be to sprinkle on your favourite foods; soup or salad. The bright green powder made from naturally-dried Moringa leaves contains all of the good stuff you’ll find in the plant itself.

Sprinkling on top of your meal also preserves the rich phytonutrients.

  • Blend

For an added kick to your smoothie, try adding half a teaspoon of Moringa powder to your drink. Make a proper detox drink by blending watermelon, water and Moringa powder together for an added taste; throw in some honey and lemon.

If you would rather have a super green smoothie, blend apple, cucumber, blackberries, citrus and grapefruit alongside half a teaspoon of Moringa powder.

  • Shake

If you can, find some fresh Moringa leaves, get them. These leaves can be added raw into your salad curries and omelettes, but if you do choose to cook them, make sure to add them last minute as you would other vegetables. 

That way, you’re sure that the leaves maintain their nutrients, and every mouthful comes with many nutrients and vitamins. 

  • Stir

Unwind with a nice hot cup of nutrient and antioxidant-filled tea. Since Moringa tea is decaffeinated, the drink is energy filled and provides a natural pick me up. 

Brew your tea by steeping a handful of dried leaves in hot water for a few minutes next add lemon and for some taste honey. 

  • Swallow

Another easy way to include Moringa into your diet is to take it as a pill. A Moringa capsule provides the same benefits as powdered Moringa. Make sure to choose an organic moringa capsule or one with a vegetarian casing.

A popular superfood, Moringa is here to stay and its amazing health benefits ensures its longevity. Whether you choose to consume the miracle tree as a pill, powder or cooked into a dish, you’ll enjoy every bit of its nutrients.
