Ayurveda is a gift from our ancestors that keeps on giving! Moringa powder is yet another offering from the world of Ayurveda that seems to be making a grand comeback in the fitness world. 

Moringa oleifera is a plant that grows extensively in the northern part of India. The powder is made by grinding its naturally-dried leaves and is becoming a rage given its countless health benefits that the world is just beginning to discover.

Here’s listing out all its science-backed benefits to convince to finally take the plunge and start consuming moringa powder:

1. It can ease your menstrual cramps: Ladies, 10 grams of moringa powder has iron content which is equivalent to 32% of your daily iron requirement. Hence, consuming moringa powder can increase your blood haemoglobin level, and keep you more active as well as energetic.

Additionally, the extra iron from it can help compensate for all the blood loss during your periods and it helps to ease the period cramps as well.

2. It’s an elixir for your skin health: As per the US-based Agricultural Research Service, moringa powder is a rich source of vitamin A and vitamin E. These are both vitamins which play a huge part in keeping your skin bright and healthy. Moreover, it helps with signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.

4. It aids digestion: While the high calcium content in moringa powder keeps your digestive enzymes flowing to enable proper digestion, its high fibre content ensure bowel regularity and a healthy gut.

5. It can control diabetes: Moringa leaves contain chlorogenic acid.
