We get it. You’re feeling stressed, rushed and fatigued but don’t know why. What’s worse is that this chronic stress and fatigue can really begin to take a toll on your body. Your stress can come from work life, personal life, depression, diet or even environment.
This stress leads to internal, biological issues due to your body resorting to survival mode. You see, your body doesn’t categorize the source of your stress. Your sympathetic nervous system only knows to recognize the stress and resort to fight or flight. But how do you break the cycle?
How do you go from surviving to thriving? Well, it has a lot to do with what you’re putting into your body and how you treat it.
Our raw, living and nutrient-dense organic concentrates are crafted by slowly infusing powerful and adaptogenic drumstick tree (Moringa) leaves, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (with the mother), wild honey (directly from our bees) and other thoughtfully selected and health-promoting herbs, berries, and flowers. Once they become a part of your daily practice, the results to your health and wellness may surprise you.. So what are the top reasons to add the Moringa plant to your daily practice?
5 Reasons To Add Moringa To Your Daily Practice:
- Anti-inflammatory benefits
- Help improve digestion
- Enhance memory and concentration
- Has been known to reduce stress levels
#1: Moringa Is Known to Provide Anti-Inflammatory Benefits
There are several ingredients in our Moringa infusions that have been shown to be extremely beneficial for inflammation. One of the main ingredients, ginger, has been used for its anti-inflammatory properties for centuries.
Inflammation gets a pretty bad reputation. Inflammation is really just a natural process your body goes through in order to help itself heal. The problem with inflammation is when it becomes chronic. Chronic inflammation can last for days, months and even years. The foundation of most diseases you see and hear about today is oftentimes due to chronic inflammation.
Certain factors can increase inflammation. These factors can include daily habits you may not even be aware of such as high amounts of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. (1,2) Eating highly processed and packaged foods have also been shown to increase inflammation as well. (3)
So how does ginger help in the decrease of inflammation? There is research showing that ginger constituents can help limit the production of cytokines and cyclooxyrgenase enzymes which promote inflammation. Many individuals use ginger for conditions such as arthritis and other causes of physical pain.
#2: Moringa is High in Antioxidants
Many of the ingredients in our infusions are strong sources of antioxidants, including the leaves of the drumstick tree. But what exactly are antioxidants and what do they do? Antioxidants are substances that essentially protect your cells against the harmful effects of free radicals.
What are free radicals?
Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, resulting in possible illness and aging. They also may play a much larger role in diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Without antioxidants, free radicals could cause harm rather quickly. The spearmint found in our Spearmint and Rosemary infusion is jam-packed with helpful antioxidants to add to your daily practice.
#3: Moringa Is Known to Improve Digestion
You might be doing all the “right” things, eating all the right foods, sleeping enough, getting plenty of exercise, but something still might feel, well, off. Unfortunately, it might have something to do with your digestion process.
This can be one of the most overlooked issues but also could be a cause for many other health problems. When it comes to digestion, there are a few key elements that come into play. Digestion is one thing, but factors such as your gut flora, prebiotics, probiotics, your body’s Ph levels and bacteria found within your gut play a huge role in how we digest certain nutrients. After all, if you’re not digesting foods properly, the chances of you obtaining the nutrients from these foods are slim to none.
All of our infusions provide the daily recommended serving of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar, which is said to help the overall function of digestion.
Not only that, but the lemongrass included in our Ginger and Lemongrass infusion can help improve digestion as well. The lemongrass provides a calming taste most known for its soothing effects with lemongrass tea, but it helps to soothe your stomach as well. It also keeps all of the important digestive functions in check. How does it do this? Well, for starters, it contains a component called citral. Citral is important because it helps your body digest food.
Often times you’ll find lemongrass tea being served after dinner or after a meal. It’s also been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to help certain stomach issues such as indigestion, constipation or bloating.
#4: Moringa Can Enhance Memory and Concentration
Rosemary and spearmint (as found in our Spearmint and Rosemary infusion) have been shown to provide several cognitive benefits. Both rosemary and spearmint have been shown to be helpful in improving both memory and concentration. We all know that feeling. You feel like you’re forgetting something or maybe just experiencing constant brain fog. Whatever it may be, you just can’t seem to get your mind right.
Rosemary can help. But how? Some research has shown that the strong leaves from this flower can help improve cognitive function. In fact, some research has shown that inhaling rosemary oil helps prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine (a chemical in the brain responsible for cognitive function, concentration and memory). (4)
One study was done that showed students who breathed in rosemary oil while performing a test actually increased concentration and information recall compared to lavender oil or no oil at all. (5)
#5: Our Ingredients May Help Reduce Stress
Perhaps one of the biggest struggles every individual faces is the amount of stress they experience every day. As a society, we’re constantly occupied with things, plans, people, etc. The busyness of life can create quite a stressful mindset that is simply not necessary nor beneficial. So how can you negate this cycle of stress?
Well, several of our infusions include primary stress relief herbs and adaptogenic herbs such as holy basil, moringa and spearmint. In fact, all of the parts of the holy basil plant act as an adaptogen (a natural substance that helps your body adapt to stress while promoting overall mental well-being).
Moringa (the Drumstick Tree) is another natural adaptogen and is thought to help increase the body’s resistance to the influence of stress by helping balance cortisol levels.
The spearmint in our Spearmint and Rosemary Infusion has a number of health benefits that could help you decrease your stress levels. Spearmint tea has been used quite a bit in South American countries to help level stress and even treat insomnia. One study took a look at the effect of spearmint extract on animals. As it turns out, the extract actually helped decrease anxiety and even improve their sleep. (6)
