In my search to try to improve my overall health I was told about the Moringa tree by a good friend who lives in the Philippines. She told me the it revitalized her health and also made her feel younger. She also told me about Wheat and Barley grass which I have been drinking now for almost 18 months and it does give me energy and It seems to lowered not only my stress level but my blood pressure too. Keeping in mind about what I had been told about the Moringa tree and the potency of vitamins,anti-oxidants and amino acids. I thought I would give it a try. Last Spring I made travel plans to the Philippines to visit friends and I made sure I put on my list to buy Moringa power or capsules. I found the capsules in a local drug store in Manila. Not knowing how many capsules I should take I started out taking one a day. I felt Honestly I didn't feel to much different then I did while taking the Barely and Wheat grass. I asked my friend why and she told me, one capsule at 300 mg each wasn't enough to feel the difference . I was soon out of the capsules and decided to start using the powder.
I ordered Moringa leaf powder from India. The leaves were slow heated as not to cook out all of the nutrients, then ground into a powder. I Started out by using one teaspoon (1 gram) a day and that proved to be to much. Be aware that the powder will start working to cleanse your body soon after you take it. Its best to use 1/2 teaspoon (500 mg) until your body adapts. I can tell you after taking Moringa leaf powder for 5 months now I have not only natural energy but also my eyes sight has improved and I tend to stay more focused on task I am doing. Also I am a lot more alert and at bed time I am able to sleep restfully.
