MORINGA LEAVES POWDER – SMALL DOSAGE, LARGE EFFECT
A dosage of just two or three spoonfuls of Moringa leaves powder provides a substantial amount of most people’s iron, calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Especially important – a dosage of Moringa leaves powder delivers food-based nutrients which are proven to have far higher levels of resorption by the body than traditional multi-vitamin pills. This means a moderate daily dose of Moringa leaves powder provides you with a healthy amount of daily nutrients that your body can use with maximum efficiency.

USING MORINGA LEAF POWDER
Moringa leaves powder can be added to any food or beverage and it will increase the vitamin, mineral and protein content. For healthy individuals, a few spoonfuls of Moringa leaves powder can be added to any meal to make it more nutritious. Since the nutrient content of Moringa leaf powder decreases if exposed to heat, add the powder after the food or drink has been prepared, just before serving. Moringa leaf powder has the greatest impact on those who are more vulnerable: malnourished children, pregnant or lactating women, children at weaning age and the elderly. Malnourished children ages 1-3 years should consume three rounded tablespoons of Moringa leaf powder each day. Pregnant or lactating women should consume six rounded tablespoons of Moringa leaves powder each day.

Moringa leaves powder has been clinically proven to increase the production of breast milk whether it is consumed before or after the birth of a baby. Mothers who took Moringa leaves powder were shown to produce more than 2x the amount of breast milk than those who didn’t. We all know instinctively that breast milk is the ultimate food prescribed by nature for the infant child and Moringa leaves powder can be instrumental in helping mothers produce more of this precious food.

An individual needs sufficient amounts of certain vitamins, minerals, protein and other nutrients to maintain a healthy body and physical well-being. The Moringa leaves powder is an excellent source for many of these nutrients and can be a valuable source for many people.
