For people who deal with diabetes and high blood sugar, regular consumption of moringa leaves, roots and seeds can also help to significantly lower your blood sugar levels. The high protein content along with the high concentration of essential vitamins and minerals has made the moringa tree effective in helping to combat malnutrition of children and mothers in developing countries.
How to consume Moringa?
You can simply drink it as a tea or you can use it to sprinkle a little bit over every meal as if you were adding a green salt and pepper to your meal. If you have prepared a soup or stew, you can also add a tablespoon of moringa powder to your soup without altering the original taste but adding large amounts of nutrition.
So you should remember that Moringa contains many healthful compounds such as:
vitamin B1 (thiamine)
B3 (niacin), B-6
folate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
It is also extremely low in fats and contains no harmful cholesterol.
