Honey is an excellent sugar substitute in any recipe and makes the taste more sweet. Together with Moringa an perfect combination. Honey contains vitamins & antioxidants and is fat free, cholesterol free and sodium free. Honey is the only food that contains all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water. Honey can be consumed in many different forms: cut comb or chunk honey, liquid honey and creamed or whipped honey. The taste and color of honey are determined by the floral source from which the bees gather nectar.
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.
The different between Moringa and Moringa-Spirulina tablets.
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.
Did you know that, the juice from the root bark put into ears to relieve earaches and also placed in a tooth cavity as a pain killer ?

Study indicates that the phytochemicals derived from Moringa Oleifera seeds extracts are effective anti-mosquito agents.
Moringa Oleifera against Malaria, dengue is an important human viral disease transmitted by the yellow fever mosquito, is a mosquito that can spread dengue fever. 2-5 billion people living in tropical and subtropical countries, there are no specific antiviral drugs to treat it and no vaccines to prevent it. Or 3900 million people, in 128 countries, are at risk of infection with dengue viruses. Symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, jaundice, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue and more serious.
Studies, reported in the 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2016 that threatening diseases by malaria, yellow fever and dengue can be protected by the use of Moringa Oleifera.
2009 and 2011 they investigated the larvicidal effect of Moringa seed extract. The researchers found that this extract was toxic to the larvae of the yellow fever mosquito, an insect that spreads a number of diseases. On the other hand it was found that the extract was harmless to rats. The authors conclude that the seeds and their extract could be used in mosquito control programs. According to Michael Lea (Jal Mandir Technology Clearinghouse) in an e-conference organized by USAID, quote: “Moringa oil on a water tank will help kill mosquito larvae and thus reduce the threat of malaria and other deadly insect-borne diseases.”
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.
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.
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 .
