Le Moringa et ses bienfaits Les Siffleux, breuvages torréfiés

Moringa and its benefits

Several benefits are associated with Moringa, which is native to the Himalayan region of India. Thanks to these numerous nutrients, it can help fight malnutrition, detoxify the body of arsenic, help regulate diabetes, cleanse water of impurities and reduce cholesterol levels. It is quite simply a plant with multiple benefits.

Moringa, more than a plant, a food

The whole plant is edible. The seeds can be roasted and eaten. Its white flower has a mushroom taste. Its leaves are a food, we eat them like spinach. Its pods are high in protein and taste like asparagus. Its roots taste like horseradish, and help fight scurvy.

Just in the leaf of moringa oleifera , we find so many elements that it is considered a superfood.

  • Iron
  • calcium
  • Magnesium
  • potassium
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B (B6 and B2)
  • Vitamin A (beta-carotene)
  • Protein
  • Amino acids
  • Fibers

Pregnant and lactating women, as well as infants can consume moringa leaves without fear, as it provides multiple vitamins and minerals that will help the baby's growth.

Moringa helps get rid of fatigue and reduces anxiety. Thanks to its high level of vitamin A, it helps correct vision problems. Its iron level is 3 times higher than in spinach. So Popaye can go sit down again, or change his diet, if he wants to stay strong and healthy!

Moringa to reduce sugar levels

Several studies show that moringa leaves, when consumed regularly, can reduce blood sugar levels. High blood sugar increases the risk of various diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Moringa leaves can help lower blood sugar levels, as well as cholesterol levels, making it a diabetic-friendly herb.

Moringa purifies water

A study from the University of Northern British Columbia shows that moringa root powder can kill up to 87% of E. coli bacteria in contaminated water. It's not nothing! So, we could use it if necessary, simply by leaving it to soak overnight in water to consume. But let's be careful, this method still needs to be proven to know what is the appropriate quantity to use to properly filter the water.

Moringa to reduce arsenic levels

Moringa is antiseptic and antifungal. Which means that it destroys several fungi and harmful microbes.

Today, as many rice fields are contaminated by arsenic, and as some people eat a lot of rice (especially if one is gluten intolerant) it is possible to have a high level of arsenic in the blood. Over time, this can cause various illnesses, such as heart disease, certain cancers, or memory problems.

Animal studies suggest that Moringa oleifera may protect against arsenic toxicity. However, this has not yet been studied in men or women.

Moringa in my drink


On the market, we usually find powdered moringa leaves. We must then use ingenuity to integrate it into our diet so that it remains tasty to consume.

It is possible to make smoothies with the powder that you mix with other ingredients, such as berries, a banana, orange juice, etc.

For a change, I invented a hot drink that contains moringa. I called it THE OPERA .

This is my detox drink. Combined with beetroot and kaffir lime, a gentle cleansing takes place in our body, without us realizing it. Plus, it tastes like hot chocolate.

Because I don't really like doing detoxes that don't taste good. Here, it's the opposite! If you add milk to the cup, the color changes to almost red, because of the beetroot. It's cute!
