Moringa is a tree brought from the mind of God to the hands of man. It was recognized by the National Institutes of Health as the Botanical of the Year for 2007, and praised again in 2011 and 2012. It is valued worldwide for its ability to treat over 300 diseases. It has the ability to retain high concentrations of electrolyte minerals, allowing it to stay internally hydrated in the driest of conditions. Africans have honored it with names that translate to: “Never Die,” and “The Only Thing that Grows in the Dry Season,” and “Mother’s Milk.” This plant has saved more lives in Third World countries than any other.
It’s an unfortunate fact that our own “civilized” food supply no longer feeds us well nutritionally. Our food is comforting, and tastes good, but as far as our cells are concerned, too much of what we eat is over-processed, denatured and acidic, and ends up depleting our bodies— robbing us rather than feeding us. We all need to supplement our diets in the most efficient and economical means possible. The Moringa tree is working in remote areas to solve hunger and malnutrition.
Here are a few of the 539 medicinal, chemical actions that Moringa gives to the body:
Antiulcer (9), Vasodilator (9), Hypocholesterolemic (14), Antitumor (10),
Cancer-preventive (19), Antiviral (9), Hypotensive (9), Diuretic (8), Fungicide (8),
Antiseptic (7), Hepatoprotective (7), Antiasthmatic (6), Antiparkinsonian (7),
Laxative (5), Antiatherosclerotic (6), Anxiolytic (6), Hypoglycemic (5), Antiherpetic (6),
Antihistaminic (5), Antirheumatic (5), Antifatigue (5), Antimenopausal (4), Sedative (4),
Antiprostatitic (4), Antidepressant (8), Cardioprotective (8), Antiosteoporotic (5),
…and 358 more!
Of course, one of the main things that jumped off the page to me was the fact that Moringa has 19 cancer preventativeeffects and 10 antitumor effects. According to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s website, “In vitro and animal studies indicate that the leaf, seed, and root extracts of MO have anticancer (3) (4), hepatoprotective (10), hypoglycemic (12), anti-inflammatory (13) (14), antibacterial (18) (19), antifungal (20), antiviral (21), and antisickling(37) effects. They may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease (29) , stomach ulcers (24), help lower cholesterol levels(25), and promote wound healing (30).”
All I can say is WOW! When mainstream cancer clinics start to tout the benefits of a natural botanical, then we know that there must be something to it! But that’s just the tip of the iceberg with Moringa!
Today’s western diet has double the caloric intake of a consumer in 1965 and we are receiving 75% less nutrient value for current calories consumed. Seeking daily, quality nutrient supplementation is no longer an option but a requirement for health.
Moringa provides a rare combination of zeatin (a potent antioxidant), quercetin (a flavonoid known for its ability to neutralize free radicals and relieve inflammation), beta-sitosterol (a nutrient superstar that blocks cholesterol formation or build-up and is an anti-inflammatory agent for the body), caffeoylquinic acid (another powerful anti-inflammatory compound), and kaempferol (a key nutrient that promotes healthy body cellular function). This compound is called “Z-Atin” and it’s found in Zija. Z-Atin is the metabolic trigger for complete nutrient absorption and its guarantees that you get all the goodness of Moringa found in Zija.
The Bethesda, Maryland-based International Eye Foundation is now using Moringa, with its high content of beta-carotene, converting to Vitamin A in the body, to combat childhood blindness. Doctors are using Moringa to treat diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India.
