What if there is a super food plant created by nature which is full of anti-oxidants, nutrients, proteins and essential amino acids.
What if I told you that this “super plant” has been used for everything from killing parasites, to treating headaches, to treating malnourishment for children in 3rd world countries.
Sound too good to be true? Fortunately, nature doesn’t care about what sounds “too good” or “too bad”, nature is about balance.

My personal experience with Moringa Oleifera
As a vegetarian, I always have to be mindful that I am taking the appropriate amount of proteins, vitamins and minerals daily. Moringa Oleifera is the super food I use to help ensure I am ingesting what my body needs daily. The first time I took some Moringa Oleifera (powdered form), it was with my protein smoothie, 30 minutes after ingestion I had some sharp stomach pains and had to use the bathroom. Curious as to why I reacted this way, I did some research, turns out that what I experienced is not uncommon. The stomach pains were akin to a symptom of a Herxheimer detox reaction.
You see Moringa is more than just a nutritious super food plant, it is also a powerful detoxifier for removing toxins and metals out of the human body. So what I experienced was simply the Moringa supplement doing its job of removing toxins and harmful metals out of my body (probably heavy metals). On my future consumption of Moringa powder I simply took half the amount and I no longer experienced any strong detox reactions. Your reactions may vary due to your own state of health and internal toxicity.
You No Longer Have an Excuse to be Passive About Disease
With the above information, my hope is that you will at least consider Moringa Oleifera as part of your staple diet. Even if you are perfectly healthy it will help maintain or even possibly enhance your health. If you are not healthy or are suffering from an ailment, then Moringa Oleifera may be just what you need to boost your immune system and help detox your system.
