How to make Moringa Oleifera tea


Since I learned about the Amazing benefits of Moringa, it has become a part of my diet especially the tea (Moringa Oleifera tea) which I make easily in the mornings. I also add the fresh Moringa leaves to some of my salads , porridge and soups. Since I’m not trying to lose weight, I take the tea alongside other meals as a form of supplement & Luckily for me i get a fresh supply whenever i need it. A friend of mine who has been on the Moringa diet for a long time takes the tea or salad alone for weight loss and what I’ve seen so far has been like magic to me because she has indeed lost so much weight.

 Nutritional info:
-          Researchers recently concluded that a compound in moringa tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. The secret lies in the fact that it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is a powerful antioxidant. Besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming  healthy tissues.
-          Drinking moringa tea lowers cholesterol levels as well as improving the ratio of good cholesterol (high density lipoprotein) to Bad cholesterol (Low density lipoprotein)
-          It can help in preventing tooth decay due to its bacteria destroying abilities.

    Hi, I love your insightful review of the Moringa plant. I was gifted a pack of the powdered leaves sometimes back but anytime I add it to my tea, it floats. What do I do?

    1. For the powdered leaves to be Used as tea I'd advice you to get a small sieve with Not so porous holes(just like in the old days before teabags were invented).you could get it for about 100naira in the market. Some have plastic handles while others(which are more expensive)have metal handles.you could start by adding the leaves into a flask with hot water and leaving it to brew for some mins before sieving out into a cup.

  4. Hello Dobby. I'm learning a lot from your moringa posts. Can't believe I've not tried it yet though in recent times, I've come across both the dried and fresh moringa leaves at the market. The benefits really make it a miracle tree. I'm interested in the weight loss benefits which you mentioned above. My understanding is that it aids weight loss by making one feel fuller for longer, thus suppressing cravings? Could you please include a recipe for making moringa salad sometime? Thanks!

  15. In the Philippines, moringa leaves are best serve with chicken. Here's the recipe: Stir fry minced onion bulb and two sliced tomatoes. Once the spices are limp, pour your 1/2 kilo chopped chicken with four cups of water into the cooking bowl. Add salt and ginger to improve taste. Cover the whole mixture and let it boil for 25 minutes. When the chicken is already tender, pour the moringa leaves ( taken from its tiny branches and tips removed). Let it simmer on a low flame for another 10 minutes. Once the leaves are tender to bite, it is ready for feasting!

  19. Using Moringa Tea3:42 pm

    Lots of people want to experience the health benefits of Moringa but they don’t have access to fresh leaves or seeds. It is good to know that the powder can also supply many of the nutrients that are found in the plant when it is fresh. Women who are pregnant should always speak to their doctor before using it. Some physicians do not think of it as a food that should be consumed too often during this stage. If a woman wants to know whether to use Malunggay during pregnancy she can get good advice from her gynecologist.

  21. Ceylon tea is prized for its rich aroma and taste. It comes from the same tea plant as many of the most popular teas.It has stronger taste than other teas and has very similar health benefits to black tea, but is favored for their superior quality and flavor.

  24. I've read in several articles that you shouldn't take moringa if you're trying to get pregnant as it can induce miscarriages or generally just make the attempts unsuccessful. I'm anemic so id really love to try it but I worry about interactions with my daily vitamins (overdosing?) and I am trying to get pregnant as well which is proving difficult enough without something inhibiting it. Thoughts or links would be so appreciated!
