Over the past decade we have been facing an epidemic of cancer, cardiovascular and chronic health diseases because we are not eating what our bodies need. We are ultimately pushing ourselves against nature with our diet, environment, stress and pharmaceutical drugs (i.e. antibiotics). Bring on 2020 and we have a global health pandemic -COVID 19 (coronavirus). Those with already compromised immune systems are at the highest risk of further illness with less ability to fight off the virus.
There is hope for our health and future generations to come if we turn back to nature and give it a chance to restore itself. Moringa is a unique plant with medicinal properties that can off-set a typically unhealthy Western diet as it is overflowing with protein, vitamins such as A, B, C, D and minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, with high levels of Selenium (antioxidants), essential amino acids and omegas 3,6 and 9. Most other plants are beneficial for a particular nutrient (i.e. oranges for vitamin C, spinach for iron). Moringa however provides higher levels of nutrients than other plant food (for example 7x more vitamin C than oranges). It also has adaptogen properties and a cocktail of nutrients that work together for better absorption (i.e. iron absorbs better with vitamin C). There is a reason why they call it the ‘miracle tree’ – there is no other plant food like it.
To cope better with the Coronavirus nutritionists and health professionals are advising to optimise our intake of nutrients such as Selenium (antioxidants), Vitamin C, Zinc and the B vitamins. These are essential to support immune function and should be obtained daily through the diet. Consuming Moringa ticks all the above boxes and so much more. If you want to enjoy a more balanced and healthier lifestyle now and, in the future, we would highly recommend you and your family to try our organic moringa products.
Ensure you get your 10 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. They contain compounds called phytonutrients that are essential for optimal health. Two pieces of fruit and eight portions of vegetables is ideal. Moringa is great for achieving the above as it is rich in nutrition owing to the presence of a variety of essential phytochemicals present in its leaves, pods and seeds, , it also high levels of antioxidants, all essential amino acids and is protein rich.
– Avoid refined sugars and alcohol which deplete the immune system
-Get adequate rest as sleep deprivation compromises immune function; aim for 7-9 hours of good quality sleep.
-Physical activity supports immune function, staying on the sofa all day will not protect you! Why not go outdoors in the fresh air – avoiding crowded situations.
-Use immune-boosting herbs such as echinacea, and anti-viral herbs such as elderberry.
-Keep your stress levels down. Cortisol suppresses the immune system, so try to combat stress.
-Epsom salt baths and doing diaphragmatic breathing exercises are simple and easy choices.
-Drink plenty of water (around 2 litres a day, but this depends on age, physical activity and external temperatures).
