I am often asked while following a disciplined plant-based diet, “What do I eat for protein?” I knowingly respond Moringa, as it proficiently cultivates what I call plant muscle. I don’t know any plant close to Moringa’s abundant amino acid composition (amino acids are the building blocks of protein). In my experience, its protein quality and iron-rich constitution are unsurpassed in the food as medicine space. Moringa builds, maintains, and strengthens muscles like no other. Soon after consuming Moringa I am often inspired to move, lift, and utilize the muscles in my body with such exercises as pushups and pullups. It is believed that Moringa Oleifera may just be the one plant in our diverse and vast tropical medicine garden that one could solely survive on if necessary.
The leaves, which comprise our Moringa Powder and also find their way into our Endurance Powder and Women’s Wellness Tea, are the most nutritious part of the plant. They are a significant source of B vitamins, vitamin C,
An ingredient in our Cleanse Powder, the Moringa plant is also very cleansing for the blood and fat tissues. In fact, in a historic textbook of Ayurveda, Bhava Prakash, Moringa is called sigru (moves like an arrow), and is described as deeply and rapidly penetrating tissues, even to the depth of the bone marrow for deep cleansing. Yet Moringa has the unique and mysterious effect of also being a tonic at the same time that it is detoxifying.
I personally consume more Moringa on a consistent basis than any other plant medicine on our farm. I do this because of the efficiency, efficacy, and quality of its plant protein and iron. I consume the powder in my smoothies, on my salads, in my soups, and as hot tea or simply stirred into my water. As far as serving amounts, I typically add to flavor. Honestly, whatever it takes to consume this nourishing stalwart of a plant medicine on a consistent basis.
Like all of our plant medicines, Kauai Farmacy Moringa is fed the highest quality soil, freshly cured and packaged on site, and is organically grown in a small farm biodiverse system. Moringa may be the most life empowering plant medicine that we grow. I stand by its healing efficacy and versatility for anything and everyone. As for a high-powered, nutrient-dense, vitamin-packed source of plant protein, Moringa is the answer.
