ONE  GREAT  BIG  LITTLE  KNOWN  FACT  ABOUT  MORINGA  OLEIFERA

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.

For you today is detailed information that proves that Moringa Oil is the best product on the planet for your personal use! 

First of all let’s get on the same page about the human skin: 

Our skin is a living organ and it is wise to feed it with products that are derived from living foods.  Sixty percent (60%) of what we apply on our skin will immediately be absorbed by our blood stream without filtering of any kind.  AHEM.

Second of all, the official name of the tree producing the seeds that produce the oil is Moringa Oleifera. Oleifera is the latin term for “oil containing”. The mature seed of the Moringa produces about forty percent (40%) oil that is clear, sweet, not sticky, odorless, non-drying and does not become rancid easily.  In fact, the shelf life of most oil purchased is four to five years.  

Here is some technical history.  This oil which is popularly called Ben Oil or Behenic acid is 73% oleic acid, a monounsaturated, omega-9 fatty acid composition with comparable (OR more) attributes than olive oil which is 75% oleic acid. 

Now, a few medical attributes.  These fatty acids are known to lower cardiovascular risks, help prevent atherosclerosis, promotes lower blood levels of cholesterol and lower levels of blood glucose.  Also, may significantly delay the onset of diabetes by preventing insulin resistance.  High sources of oleic acid reduce bone calcification problems and promote bone mineralization. 

Let’s mention the healing properties of the plant.  With most natural herbs, oils or medicinal plant, there are times when you address one medical problem (such as high blood pressure) using natural means and the side effect may be that another condition  (such as diabetes or gout) disappears as well.

Topically applied oil is used to treat gout and acute rheumatism.  It is effective for skin rashes and problems such as allergies, acne, psoriasis, eczema, moles, warts and other skin infections and irritations.  Improvements are noted when used for scurvy, prostate problems, bladder problems, gastritis and ulcers.  Also, it is noted to lower the incident of gallstone formation, as a tonic and a purgative.  The very wide scope of benefits are AMAZING. I say  AMAZING !

Actually applied to our skin as massage oil it serves as an excellent emollient and promotes the production of antioxidants and relieves stress and anxiety. 

For centuries it has been well utilized in hair conditioners and moisturizers due to its smoothing properties.  Moringa oil is used in facial care, cosmetics, lotion and perfume. It is used as an ointment base and more specifically as a base for shampoo, lotion and soap producing a stable lather with a high washing efficiency.  In the perfume industry, it has proven valuable with its stabilizing capacity to absorb and retain volatile substances. 

According to Elemis, a well-known brand name for the Elemis Cellular Recovery cosmetic product, “Moringa oil has been clinically proven to have up to 1,700% more antioxidant effectiveness (cytokinins – zeatin) than other cosmetic oils”.  WOW !

This comprehensive information should leave no doubt or any reason to give it a second thought if you want the very best premium product on the market for your healthy skin and healthy body and mind.

This is what fuels my PASSION to tell the world about MORINGA !   I am available for all questions and will do my best to address your specific problems.

Moringa Tree Planting: A key weapon against global warming

According to Climate, Biodiversity, and Forests, World Resources Institute: “over the past 150 years, deforestation has contributed an estimated thirty percent of the atmospheric build-up of Carbon Dioxide.  It is also a significant driving force behind the loss of genes, species, and critical ecosystem services.”

However, one practical step to compensate for the several unpreventable CO2 emissions is to PLANT TREES.  Tree planting can and will make an important and valuable contribution to the fight against accelerating global climate change.  The TYPE of tree planted will have a great influence on the environmental outcome.  Trees take Carbon Dioxide OUT of the atmosphere and they RELEASE oxygen in return.

What is so special about the Moringa Tree is that based on a Japanese study it has reportedly a rate of absorption or assimilation of Carbon Dioxide that is twenty times (20x) higher than that of general vegetation and fifty times (50x) the rate of CO2 absorption compared with the Japanese cedar trees.  In other words, Moringa would be a useful tool in the prevention of global warming in that one (1) Moringa tree will be the equivalent to the effectiveness of fifty (50) Japanese cedar trees in absorbing carbon. 

Also, Moringa has one of the highest sources of chlorophyll in the plant kingdom.  Even our own bodies, when we take in any plant food that is rich in chlorophyll, the ill effects of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
