Moringa (Moringa oleifera) powder is made of the ground leaves of the moringa tree, a beloved drought resistant plant that has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years. Also referred to as the drumstick tree because of the long and twisted seed pods it produces, moringa has a rich history across India and throughout the world due to its reputation as a miracle tree. Historically, various parts of the moringa tree have been used for everything from building materials, to water filtration, to traditional medicine, and everyday use as a nutrient dense food source. In classic Ayurvedic texts, moringa is called “sigru,” which means “moves like an arrow,” alluding to the herb’s ability to rapidly penetrate the tissues of the body to instigate deep cleansing and restoration.
Due to its incredible nutritional content, moringa is frequently referred to as an herbal superfood and has become a popular addition to smoothies, shakes, and energy boosters, and the powder can easily be sprinkled on your meal to add extra nutrient value. Other than the health boosting vitamins and minerals generally known to be found in moringa such as vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, and iron, the leaf powder is also commonly known to contain many of the essential amino acids required to form a complete protein! Heating and bitter, moringa is balanced for kapha and vata, and its cleansing yet tonifying nutritional boost supports optimum energy levels and greater overall vitality.*
