Moringa is great for detox. It eliminates harmful toxins, de-bloats and shrinks your waistline, and rejuvenates your skin from within.

One Gram of Moringa contains:

• 25 X more iron than spinach
• 15 X more potassium than bananas
• 4 X more protein than eggs
•  Moringa leaves are a great source of vitamin A
• 17 X more calcium than milk

In addition, moringa contains:

• 92 nutrients
• 46 antioxidants
• 36 anti-inflammatory substances
• 18 amino acids, 9 significant amino acids

The Detox Drinks: 

  1. Moringa & Turmeric Detox Shot


You will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of moringa leaf powder (get it here)
  • 1 tbsp of turmeric powder
  • 8 oz. or more of water,or orange juice
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon manuka honey

Add ingredients to blender and blend for 5 seconds or simply mix and stir them in a glass. 

Turmeric powder may prompt weight loss in that it turns white fat into brown fat, which is burned by the body to release energy, not stored as fat.

Due to its antibacterial properties, moringa helps suppress the growth of pathogenic microorganisms, and its high content of B vitamins promotes better digestion.

  1. Matcha Moringa Hot Cocoa

Probably, the most powerful combination of green superfood powders: matcha and moringa.

Matcha powder contains concentrated levels of antioxidants. Matcha neutralizes the effects of carcinogens, helps slow down the aging process and rejuvenates cells. Matcha powder boosts metabolism and kicks off fat burning by acting as a detox agent.

For this recipe you will need:

3.   Aloe Moringa Superpower Drink

 

For this moringa drink for detox you will need:

  • 1 cup of aloe vera juice 
  • 1-2 oz of Black Cherry Juice Concentrate 
  • 1 tablespoon of moringa leaf powder (get it here)
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds

Add ingredients to blender, blend for 5 seconds. You can add 1 banana or an apple if you want to make this drink more filling.

Aloe Vera juice contains 19 out of 20 amino acids necessary for our bodies and seven out of eight irreplaceable amino acids that are simply not produced in the body.

Black cherry concentrate helps support iron level, it is rich in antioxidants and therefore supports our immune system.

4. Moringa & Banana Smoothie Recipe

 

 Probably, the easiest moringa drink for detox. Just add 1 tablespoon of moringa powder to 1 cup of water of kefir, add 1 banana and blend it all up.

 

Ready!
Actually you can add moringa powder to any juices and smoothies, as well as cereals, and salads. It has slightly vegetable, so probably it is not worth adding it to orange or other citrus juices.

 

 

 

5. Moringa & Cacao Smoothie Recipe

 

This moringa smoothie bursts with tree tastes – sweet, savory and bitter. Kale leaves responsible for a green savory note, cacao powder bringing in a little bitter aftertaste. and some coconut water to add an extra sweetness.

Why combining moringa with kale? Kale leaves contain more calcium than milk, and the same amount of magnesium (47 mg).Vitamin C in kale is twice as much as in an orange.

In addition, kale is a great addition to almost any smoothie, as it has practically no smell, except that it remotely resembles ordinary white cabbage.
