Moringa Extract – Does it help with weight loss?
What is Moringa Extract?
Moringa extract originates from the Moringa tree, also known as the “Miracle Tree” in Asia and Africa. This extract has been used for thousands of years and has extremely high nutritional value. Typically, health-enhancing plants and natural forms of nutrition provide only one or two specific health benefits whereas the extract from a Moringa tree contains approximately 90 beneficial nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
How does it work?
Moringa extract contains high amounts of protein, calcium, potassium, fiber and vitamin A and B. By consuming the extract, your body is satisfied with the nutrients being provided and experiences less cravings for unhealthy (non-nutritious) foods. The extract reduces the amount of sugar being released into the blood stream which slows down the process of the sugar turning into fat. High levels of B vitamins are present which your body uses to convert the food you consume into energy. It allows you to consume a high level of nutrients without consuming unhealthy fats or high-calorie carbohydrates, for example the extract contains higher protein levels than whole milk or eggs without the additional fat and calorie intake. Most weight loss solutions opt as a “quick fix” and rarely sustain long term positive effects, the Moinga extract works by conditioning the body to more effectively process food and reduces the cravings we have for high-sugar & high-fat foods.
Consuming the extract
There are a number of ways to consume the Moringa extract. The leaves themselves can be eaten raw, cooked or crushed into a dry powder that can be stored for years without losing its high nutritional content. Popular consumption methods include steeping the leaves into a tea form or ingesting capsulized forms taken as food supplements.
