Spirulina and Moringa-Spirulina
Spirulina and Spirulina Tablets mixed with Moringa, are made in Cambodia.
Made from 100% Organic Moringa leaves and Natural Spirulina.
Spirulina is a micro algae which contains more than 65% protein. This is more than any other food including meat and fish. Proteins are necessary for maintaining tissues, supporting growth and making hormones in the human body. Spirulina contains 18 amino acids including the 8 essential. It is also rich in vitamins and nutrients and is low in fat.
Moringa-Spirulina tablets contain 29,3% more proteins than Moringa tablets. Proteins are important for the human body. They supply the body with calories (energy) and amino acids. Moringa-Spirulina tablets are a good source of proteins and aminoacids including the 8 essential ones.
Moringa-Spirulina tablets are a great source of Vitamin A (beta-Carotene). The amount of Vitamin A in Moringa-Spirulina is triple as high compared to Moringa. Vitamin A is important for the human body’s skin and eyes.
Vitamin A is necessary for the production of skin cells and skin tissue. It also ensures the proper functioning of the immune system. 4 tablets Moringa-Spirulina contain the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A (adults).
Moringa-Spirulina tablets are rich in Vitamin B12. Spirulina is the only vegetable source of Vitamin B12 and is therefore excellent for vegetarians and vegans. Vitamin B12 is required for the production of red blood cells and a good functioning of the nervous system.
Moringa-Spirulina tablets are a great addition to a diet to meet the recommended daily intake of Vitamin B12. 6 Moringa-Spirulina tablets are good for 86% of the RDA for an adult.
Moringa-Spirulina tablets contain 29,7% more iron than Moringa tablets. Iron is very important for the formation of hemoglobin, which is necessary for a good transportation of oxygen in the blood and the metabolism. The addition of Moringa-Spirulina tablets to a diet can eliminate iron deficit symptoms.
Moringa-Spirulina tablets contain 17 times more calcium than Moringa tablets. Calcium is a mineral that is necessary to build up and maintenance bones and teeth. Calcium is also needed for a proper functioning of the nerves and the muscles, and the transport of other minerals in the human body.
Moringa Oleifera Soap reducing bacterial contamination.
Moringa Oleifera could be very useful in places where soap or water is not available, and where this tree grows naturally.
It could also be a cheap and healthy hand-washing optional product.
Efficacy of Moringa Oleifera leaf powder as a hand- washing product. Other authors found that aqueous and ethanolic Moringa oleifera leaf extracts were effective against Salmonella.
Diarrheal disease are a common cause of morbidity and the leading cause of death among children under five, accounting for 19% of mortality in this age group . Most of all diarrheal deaths of children under five years are in Africa and South East Asia .
The vast majority of diarrheal diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses and protozoa, mainly found in human faeces which are spread from the stool of one person to the mouth of another. Hands can act as a vector for transmission of faecal pathogens, either via direct person-to-person transmission or by contaminating food that is later consumed . Hand washing after defecation and before handling food is therefore a biologically plausible mechanism for interrupting pathogen transmission. Hands are also transmission vectors for respiratory infections, and interventions promoting hand hygiene have been shown to reduce gastrointestinal and respiratory illnesses by an average of 31% and 21%, respectively .
Methods: The hands of fifteen volunteers were artificially contaminated with Escherichia coli. Moringa oleifera leaf powder was tested as a hand washing product and was compared with reference non-medicated liquid soap using a cross over design following an adaptation of the European Committee for Standardization protocol (EN 1499). In a second part of tests, the efficacy of the established amount of Moringa oleifera leaf powder was compared with an inert powder using the same protocol.
Moringa Anti Ageing
Moringa the prized plant for anti-aging.
Solar ultraviolet exposure is the main cause of skin damage by initiation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to skin collagen imperfection and eventually skin roughness. This can be reduced by proper revitalization of skin enhancing younger and healthier appearance.
The anti-oxidant cystine, found in in Moringa Oleifera stop free radicals, whilst the proteins accelerate the re-growth of new cells.
Furthermore, the vitamin A in Moringa assists in the production of collagen and elastin, helping firm your skin and rid it of wrinkles and other skin defects.
In short, the nutrients which are found in Moringa, can help to keep your skin healthy and fit. Clearly it won’t turn back the clock but as part of a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet it will make a real difference to your health.
Moringa contains a plant hormone known as zeatin. The name ‘zeatin’ is derived from two Greek words (zytos = cell, kinesis = movement). Zeatin contains robust anti-aging properties.
There are currently no other plants to be reported to possess the same, abundant levels of zeatin other than the moringa plant, making moringa the prized plant for anti-aging.
- Moringa for anti-aging-Study
Moringa leaves are reported to be rich in phenolics and antioxidants like vitamin C, B and A .
- Leaves are used as purgative, applied as the poultice to sores, rubbed on the temples for headaches, used for piles, fevers, sore throat, bronchitis, eye and ear infections, anti-inflammatory, scurvy and catarrh.
- It protects the human skin from environmental influences and combats premature skin aging .

Moringa Oleifera as a Dietary supplement.
Moringa Oleifera is an unbelievable source of all macro, micro elements amino acids and dietary fiber.
About 2000 years ago, Hippocrates correctly emphasized “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”.
Faculty of Engineering & Technology
Jadavpur University, Dietary supplement.
However, supplements should not replace variety of foods that are important to a healthy diet, so it is necessary to take variety of foods as well. We are currently eating foods that are out of balance even though the requirements for these nutrients for optimal health have remained constant (Eaton and Konner, 1985).
Moringa Oleifera is an unbelievable source of all macro, micro elements amino acids and dietary fiber. No single food contains all of the vitamins and minerals. So it is unbelievable to get all the nutrients in a single plant. That’s why it is called as ‘miracle tree’. It is a good source of tocopherols, -carotene (pro-vitamin A), vitamin C, calcium, protein, potassium. The leaf is highly nutritious and contains significant quantities of crude protein, vitamins and minerals. The pod is an excellent source of amino acid. Therefore the present investigation has been carried out to explore this plant as a nutritional Dietary supplement by estimating the food value.
The investigation work carried out has been represented in the thesis through the following section: The difference between the two is termed as “nutrient gap”. This can have adverse influences on the energy processes of the body that are necessary for all vital functions. Currently neutraceuticals are recognized as being beneficial in coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and other chronic and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Evidences indicate that the mechanistic actions of natural compounds involve a wide array of biological processes, including activation of antioxidant defenses, signal transduction pathways, cell survival-associated gene expression, cell proliferation and differentiation and preservation of mitochondrial integrity. It appears that these properties play a crucial role in the protection against the pathologies of numerous age-related or chronic diseases (Mandel et al., 2005).
Moringa Benefits Your Health
It lowers cholesterol levels in the blood.
It is nutritious, rich in antioxidants, reduce inflammation, helps to lowering high blood sugar levels:
Moringa benefits your health, though cholesterol is a vital part of every cell structure which majorly needed for proper brain function, it is known to cause heart disease or stroke when they are present in high amounts in the blood stream.
Moringa oleifera is known to play a significant role in lowering high cholesterol.
Its leaves have Zeatin, which a strong antioxidant and Quercetin, which is essential for neutralizing free radicals and reduce inflammation.
It can reduce cholesterol level since it has Beta-Sitosterol which is a power packed nutrient that blocks high cholesterol build-up in the bloodstream. This will help to reduce damage to the blood vessels by keeping both veins and arteries free of the high cholesterol.
It is believed that consumption of the right nutrient helps lower your blood cholesterol level. Therefore, Moringa is the most convenient food supplement that is essential for lowering cholesterol.
The leaves of Moringa oleifera are very nutritious and are known to be an excellent source of many minerals and vitamins. Scientists have proved that its leaves contain; proteins, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron, Riboflavin, and magnesium.
Its leaves and pods are commonly used as food supplements in Africa and India and has proved to be one of the best natural food supplements. Compared to the leaves, its pods have a small percentage of vitamins and minerals but are exceptionally rich in Vitamin C.
The good news is that almost all parts of Moringa leaves can be used as a food supplement or be used as one of the ingredients in making herbal medicine.
Why Moringa. The world’s population is projected to be 40 percent higher by 2050.
And yet our farmland is shrinking every year.
16.5921 million ha of rural land has been permanently lost in the last 25 years to highways, shopping malls, poorly planned sprawl and other development, according to a new analysis by the American Farmland Trust. Of that amount, 9.30777 million ha (an area the size of Indiana) was agricultural land. The rate of recent farmland loss has been an astounding acre per minute.
A 60 percent increase in food prices is predicted by 2050…and those costs could rise even higher after natural or manmade environmental catastrophes. http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/kbenfield/were_losing_an_acre_of_farmlan.html
Moringa is picking up steam in parts of the world where it’s never even been heard of. That’s how the Moringa market, estimated to be worth more than $4 billion per year today, is projected to be worth $7 billion by 2020.
One of the biggest and best solutions to the world’s malnutrition problems is the Moringa tree. Points out what a few people on the planet already know and what most people on the planet will recognize sooner or late.
The Moringa tree – Moringa Oleifera – Is jam-packed with nutritional value. On a gram per gram basis, Moringa has twice the protein of yogurt, seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the vitamin A of carrots, and four times as much calcium as milk. It’s also been associated with cholesterol reduction, balancing of blood sugar, and it even has antibacterial properties. http://www.smallcapnetwork.com/The-Only-Way-to-Invest-in-Moringa-Mania/s/via/10/article/view/p/mid/3/id/611/
