LIVING BETTER: HEALTHY CELLS- CAN MORINGA HELP?

MORINGA TREE 
Your body is made up of systems, each system is made up of organs, organs are developed by bringing together tissues and each tissue is made up of cells which have organ specific  intelligence. Generally speaking, the health care profession focuses on various body organs and how it affects a particular system. Many holistic teachers, at least the ones I have talked to, focus on  body systems. And of course we, people in general, just think about our body. The concept of maintaining healthy cells is not new but it is rarely spoken of.

There are 12 systems in the body: Integumentary, Muscular, Skeletal, Cardiovascular,  Immune, Lymphatic, Urinary, Digestive, Nervous, Respiratory, Endocrine, and Reproductive. Each system has its’ own very important job. These systems are dependent on their cells to house the nutrients it needs and get rig of what it does not need. An imbalance of either because of to much waste or an overdose of nutrient can cause problems.

The foods we eat are distributed to the various cells within the various organs of the body after being transformed into usable nutrients.  Focusing on healthy cells will lead to healthy tissues, which will lead to healthy organs, which will lead to healthy systems which lead to healthy bodies thus the goal should be to eat what the bodies need.

I encourage everyone to eat non-GMO foods grown in your own back yard (or on your  patio), drink plenty of filtered water and exercise. I have added Moringa Oleifera to my diet and, as I have written before, I have noticed a difference.

The first thing I noticed was the detoxifying effects of moringa; if you are filled with junk there will be no room for what is good.  The next thing I noticed was the amount of energy I had this was after about 2 weeks on Moringa.  If nothing else this change has sold me on moringa as a supplement.

On my next post I will discuss the reason I was interested in Moringa and if that is helping. Remember: in addition to taking Moringa, I pray, watch what I eat, exercise and drink water.

According to WEbMD “Moringa contains proteins, vitamins, and minerals. As an antioxidant, it seems to help protect cells from damage.” 

MORINGA OLIFERA TIDBITS
Every part of the Moringa plant can be utilized. Many people use the leaves as a tea or in a smoothie or salad or ground up and placed in a capsule.

This is a nutrient comparison: 100 gm of Moringa   vs what is in various foods                        

  • Vitamin A    6,780mcg                           Carrots 1890 mcg
