In my pursuit of optimal health, I’m always looking for products that are organic, nutritious, and aid in providing me with a vibrant mind and body. I came across a plant product that I’ve never heard of before and was so amazed at the profound benefits it offers. How many of you have heard about Moringa or know where to purchase it? I’m guessing not a lot.
Green Virgin Products is an eco-friendly, eco-conscious, and ethical company that provides us with the best organic and wildcrafted Moringa products on the planet. So, let’s get down to the essential facts about moringa and how it will benefit us. Moringa Oilefera is considered the most nutrient-rich plant on earth. It’s a very hardy plant that is native to Africa, Asia, India, and several other tropical and sub-tropical places. It can grow up to 16 feet, a year even in poor soil, making it a valuable resource for farmers. It’s a multipurpose tree where every part of it is very valuable and used for nutritional and medicinal purposes. The leaves are rich in protein, all 9 amino acids, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, and minerals like potassium, iron, calcium, and sulfur. It’s considered to the highest protein ratio of any plant on earth. It also contains more than 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds, making it a true superfood.
It’s been used effectively worldwide to treat a repertoire of ailments like arthritis, joint pain, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes, diarrhea, epilepsy, stomach and intestinal ulcers, headache, heart problems, high blood pressure, kidney stones, fluid retention, thyroid disorders, and bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections. The list could go one. On the beauty side, it’s been used for anti-aging, age spots, regrowing hair, cellulite treatment, rosacea, and a better sleep. It’s a treasure trove for any health-conscious person and I absolutely love it. I had the pleasure of trying out Green Virgin’s Moringa Ultimate, Moringa Oil, and their bar soap.
The Moringa Ultimate is an extremely fine powder making it very easy to digest. It’s packaged in 50 pre-measured 2-gram dose packets. The big pouch is their anti-oxidation free package that blocks out 100% of light. It’s a reusable pouch that offers a double seal with an oxygen absorber inside. It does have a subtle green taste which I personally like, I put a packet in my smoothie every morning and it tastes awesome. You can mix in any fluid or sprinkle it on some on your salad or oatmeal. I noticed I have a lot more energy since I’ve been using these moringa packets. It provides me with that extra fuel I need to get so much done and that is such a big plus. I also noticed my moods are better and I’m not so uptight.
The Moringa Oil, also know as Ben oil is an amazing product. You can use it for so many things. I like to put a little on my skin before I go to bed and it’s incredibly moisturizing and gives your skin a dewy glow. I also put a little on my scalp and hair as a deep conditioning treatment. It leaves my hair uber soft and silky. It’s fabulous on dry and parched skin as well, just rub a little on the rough spots and it will moisturize the areas beautifully. You can also cook with it, or use it as a salad dressing base. It has a really nice rich color and it has a pleasant and flavorful taste.
The Soap Nut & Moringa Bar Soap is a rich and luxurious bar that delivers oodles of lather and cleaning ability. It has the awesome scent of peppermint that is so calming and soothing to the soul. It’s all vegan and includes shea butter and many oils, so your skin will feel so soft and sensual. I noticed my skin is not as dry and itchy after using this soap. It’s so creamy and leaves your skin feeling well refreshed and zesty. I love it!
I think Moringa is one of those superfoods that has a place in every home. It’s so diverse and offers a wealth of healthy attributes. I highly recommend these products.
