So you’ve already taken steps in the right direction towards a healthier you by juicing, but who says you have to stop there? Not everyone has time everyday to incorporate enough fruits and veggies into their diets in order to get the recommended amount. That is why the appeal of juicing is so enticing to most people. It’s a quick and simple way to give our body the nutrients it needs. One juice a day however, does not give you all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
Moringa is fairly new to the US market but has been used in parts of Asia and Africa for centuries. Moringa helps fight malnutrition and is also used in traditional medicine. Most people who juice or go to juicing stores are familiar with wheatgrass shots. Wheatgrass shots are appealing to so many due to its high chlorophyll content. Moringa has 4X the amount of chlorophyll than wheatgrass does and it contains every essential amino acid the body needs along with many other benefits. Moringa leaves are perfect for juicing but they can be hard to come by unless you are growing a Moringa tree in your backyard. The next best thing available would be the Moringa leaf in powdered form that can be mixed into water or juice for amazing health benefits.
Moringa with water alone or just juicing alone are both great ways to give your body the nutrients it should be getting. However, adding Moringa into your juice may amplify health benefits all in one drink rather than wasting precious time on numerous things. Drew Canole, who is a YouTube famous avid juicer, has also been seen in his videos endorsing the many benefits of Moringa and adding it into his juice. We made our own juice today here at Vitaleaf and will list the recipe along with more reasons why combining Moringa and juice gives you many advantages.
Our juicing recipe that we used today consisted of:
Adding Moringa into juice helps fight fatigue and gives you energy to tackle whatever obstacle you may be facing that day. It also helps support concentration making it ideal to take before a workout or a long day at the office. Moringa is packed with B vitamins that play a major part in the activities of enzymes and proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body. This is an important part in turning food into energy.
If you’re not crazy about adding protein powder into your juice but you are missing all those protein smoothies, Moringa is one of the few plants that have protein. Studies have shown that people who incorporate more protein in their diet loose weight quicker than those who don’t. Moringa Powder has all the essential amino acids your body needs. Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins.
The body prefers, or works best, when it is in an alkaline state, which is a about a 7.3 on the ph scale. Everything we eat affects our body’s ph levels. Processed foods are very acidic and bad for ph levels, whereas foods with Chlorophyll are very effective in reversing the ph levels in the body helping it to alkalize. Moringa leaves have one of the highest levels of chlorophyll, along with an abundance of other beneficial nutrients. Adding Moringa powder into any juice that has leafy greens in it is a faster and more efficient way to alkaline the body and get you looking and feeling your best.
It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many health problems and different types of cancer. Moringa acts as an anti-inflammatory agent along with other green leafy vegetables that help heal the body. When the body is inflamed, which can happen after eating processed foods and meat, it can make you look bigger than you actually are. Incorporating anti-inflammatory foods into your diet can help you to look skinnier and feel better.
Of course, the list could go on and on about why juicing and Moringa can benefit your body. Following a strict diet or eating clean every second can be difficult to do. So take advantage of the times where you are motivated and want to take the next in becoming a healthier you.
