Add 1 tsp of powder to 8 oz of room temperature water. Room temperature water helps the moringa powder dissolve better. You may add more cold water once it has dissolved completely. It will dissolve in cold water, but it helps if you let the powder stand 3-5 minutes before stirring in order for the powder to absorb the water first. Stir until thoroughly dissolved. Moringa has a slightly nutty green taste, similar to wheatgrass or matcha powder. To enhance the flavor, add some lemon to your water and drink the entire glass at once.
Tip: Moringa is great to take first thing in the morning to give you the energy boost and mental clarity you need to kick start your day. Keep your favorite reusable non-BPA water bottle mixed up with moringa powder and water to get you through the rest of your afternoon at work.
Moringa makes the perfect pre-workout drink. It will help give your body the quick energy and nutrients it needs to make it through the session and aid in your recovery. Make sure you drink Vitaleaf Moringa Powder at least 30 minutes prior to your workout.
For those of you that find Moringa Powder + Water isn't your thing, why not add some juice to enhance the flavor? We've found that moringa tastes well with Apple and Cranberry Juice. If your juice is cold, add the powder to 4 ounces of lukewarm water and let it dissolve before stirring thoroughly until dissolved. Then add in 4 ounces of cold juice. By diluting the juice, you get the addition of the flavor with only half the additional calories.
Unfiltered Apple Juice is a good source of Vitamin C and Malic Acid, which aids in dissolving kidney stones. The alkalinity in apples assists in cleansing the destructive toxins/waste by-products from liver in addition to maintaining the pH levels of body.
Cranberry Juice is very beneficial in providing relief from urinary tract infections and its acidic components help prevent the formation of kidney stones. It is best to purchase 100% cranberry juice without any added sugar.
While fresh juices and smoothies are always the best way to get live enzymes and the most nutritional content from a smoothie, most people simply don't have the time to shop for tons of veggies and fruits on a daily basis and forget cleaning up the mess.
If you don't have the time to make a fresh smoothie in the morning, try Odwalla Superfood Smoothie (great taste, perhaps the best known, but also the most expensive), Bolthouse Farms (budget price, available at Target and other retailers), or Naked Green Machine. All three options taste great and contain a fair amount of essential vitamins and nutrients as well as spirulina and other micronutrients.
Lifeway Kefir comes in many different flavors, including Plain, Blueberry, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry and more. Kefir is a great way to support your digestive system by putting the good flora and probiotics (good bacteria) that your body needs to digest and absorb nutrition from food. These can be killed off by taking antiobiotics, high levels of stress, or other gastrointestinal issues. Lifeway Kefir contains 12 different strands of probiotics. Some studies have shown a link between balanced stomach flora levels and decreased gluten sensitivity.
Mix 1 tsp of moringa powder with 4oz of lukewarm water and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes. Stir thoroughly until dissolved and add equal amounts of your green smoothie of choice and kefir of choice. You get a great tasting nutrient packed smoothie that also helps to aid your digestive system and restore intestinal flora balance.
Vitaleaf Moringa Tea is a great way to get the beneficial effects of moringa while enjoying the drinking pleasure of a tea at the same time. To prepare, heat 8oz of water to 140F. This is very hot to the touch, but not boiling. If your water is too hot, it will destroy the nutritional content of the tea and alter its flavor. Open one tea bag and let it steep for 5 minutes in the warm water. Add honey or lemon to taste.
Having trouble winding down or falling asleep? Add a teabag of your favorite chamomile tea or loose chamomile tea in your own tea ball to the cup of warm water and steep it along with the moringa tea. Get the relaxing calming effects of the chamomile with a pleasant blend of flavors.
Have an upset stomach? Add some sliced fresh ginger to your moringa tea using the preparation instructions as shown above to help an upset stomach. Sore throat? Add some honey to soothe your sore throat and give it a hint of sweetness.
