Meet Moringa

More nutritious than kale. Twice the protein as spinach, and three times the iron. 

Move over matcha, there’s a new super green in town! 

Moringa is the latest green hero to take the wellness world by storm. Growing in abundance in tropical climates, the moringa tree was revered by ancient cultures of India, Chile, and Africa for it’s healing properties – so much so that it was given the name, Tree of Life.

Why we love it:

Moringa is rich in iron, calcium, plant protein, essential amino acids and is packed with 27 vitamins and 46 antioxidants. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory. It’s a great way to get even more nutrition into your balanced diet, adding a substantial kick of vitamin and antioxidants to boost your healthy foods and drinks. 

How we take it:

A single serve of moringa leaf powder is equivalent to two servings of leafy greens. The powder is dark green and does have a distinctive ‘green’ flavour (similar to matcha) so isn’t suitable for all meals, but is an ideal add-on to your morning smoothie.

Try our current favourite smoothie combo: banana, blueberries, chia, almond milk and moringa leaf powder. Or, simply add a scoop of the powder to any of these recipes:
