What is Moringa?
Up until about a few weeks ago I had no idea what moringa was. But I was sent a package from Kuli Kuli & the Shiftcon Love Package with various samples of wellness shots to try out. And these shots contained moringa.
Also just because I was sent this package from Kuli Kuli & Shiftcon to test out, all opinions and reactions are 100% my own.
My first reaction was, what the heck is moringa?
My husband and I enjoyed these shots and moringa powder that was sent to us. I read that moringa supposedly helps with inflammation, so I was eager to find out if it would help with my rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
I’ve been using moringa daily for a few of weeks now. The first thing I noticed was an increase in energy. As a mom of little ones, this is a huge bonus.
And although my RA inflammation hasn’t gone away, I do have a little bit of relief from it. I’m hopeful that it may help me with longer use.
So anyway…let’s get back to what moringa is.
In a nutshell, moringa is a superfood. It is loaded with beneficial nutrients. Also known as moringa oleifera, it comes from a tree that is native to tropical and subtropical regions.
Basically all parts of the moringa tree are useful as food and medicine. But the most nutrient rich and healing comes from the moringa leaves.
