Our Moringa Oleifera is an ADAPTOGEN : So what are Adaptogens??? Moringa Oleifera, one of several herbs entitled Adaptogens, works to bring the body to a balanced state of health – capable of toning down or strengthening the activity of the body’s hyper functioning systems, depending on your body’s needs.
Adaptogens are a natural substance that works with a person’s body and helps them to adapt, most notably to stress. Adaptogens are a natural ally in dealing with persistent stress and fatigue because they work with regulating hormones.
A unique group of herbal ingredients, adaptogens are used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that’s in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. They help strengthen the body’s response to stress and enhance its ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue - slowly and gently, without jolts or crashes.
The seeds, leaves, pods and oils of the Moringa plant are used globally as an ingredient in many common dishes. As part of traditional medicine, it supports the immune response, eases swelling and promotes energy and adrenal health.
First of all, it’s important to understand that stress is only meant to exist in short bursts. When your adrenal system remains in a constant active state, it throws your body out of balance. Constant stress can wreak havoc on your body, especially on your digestive system and energy levels. Adaptogens keep your body’s stress response at a desirable level. They’re good for you all the time, not just when you have a high level of stress.
They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs. Though the effects may initially be subtle and take time to make themselves felt, they’re real and undeniable.
Several other health benefits include:
· A boost for the immune system
· Support for managing a healthy weight
· Increased physical endurance and mental focus
· Reduction in discomfort caused by poor health
· Encouraging a balance mood
Most people don’t realize there are about 80,000 different chemicals being dumped into our environment on a regular basis and we are inhaling, absorbing or ingesting them, which brings them to the attention of the body police, the immune system. Our second largest organ, the liver, is involved in most of the millions of physiological processes in the body and known to carry out more than five hundred functions. Probably the best known function of the liver is detoxification.
Toxins accumulate in our tissues when the immune system cannot handle the load and the liver becomes less efficient and unable to carry out needed functions successfully. When liver function is affected or there are increasing amounts of toxins in our blood stream we experience headaches, skin rashes, fatigue, constipation, flatulence, bloated feelings, exacerbated allergic reactions, hormonal dysfunction and weight gain.
When you take Moringa, the adaptogen targets the most critical area of that person’s need. People who work in a toxic environment, consume drugs, drink alcohol or smoke should examine their lifestyle, past or present, and may realize that immediate intervention is occurring within their bodies.
Consuming Moringa over time as an important lifestyle change will eventually provide results with other health issues and accomplish even more positive changes in many persistent chronic problems.
