Have you heard, the holidays are coming! It’s almost time for parties, presents and all those delicious holiday meals. While the thought of savory meats, creamy casseroles and sweet desserts may make your mouth water, it could also make you ponder the health and weight-related consequences. If you’ve been working hard to achieve weight loss goals or just foresee holiday treats interfering with your weight maintenance, we have a suggestion: Try adding Moringa to your diet before the holiday season to supercharge your metabolism.
Moringa is a nutritious whole food filled with some of the best nutrients on the planet. When we fill our bodies with good nutrients, we feel full and satisfied and are less likely to crave unhealthy foods that add empty calories and often lead to over-eating. It’s all about balancing blood sugar with protein, good-for-you fats and carbohydrates, as well as fiber. With nature’s help, Moringa offers the delicate balance of a low-fat, low-carb food, packed with an abundance of nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy, strong and fit.
But Moringa also has some specific nutrients that help boost the metabolism and keep your body working hard to burn calories throughout the day. First, Moringa has three times more iron than spinach. Iron is required to oxygenate blood, which in-turn gives energy to the entire body. In fact, Dr. Oz named Moringa as one of the best superfoods to jumpstart your day and reenergize your body. When we have energy, our metabolism can work hard, whether it’s during physical exercise, mental concentration or at rest.
Moringa also contains an array of B-vitamins necessary for converting food into energy. Without them, our bodies would store carbohydrates and sugar excessively, rather than use these foods to immediately fuel our bodies. This food storage leads to added fat cells and weight gain. B vitamins work in several ways. First, they help our bodies digest food properly. Much like eating a balanced diet and getting a variety of nutrients, a steady, smooth digestive track can keep our bodies full longer. B vitamins help breakdown fats and carbohydrates, which itself speeds the metabolism. They also help release stored energy, burning up fat and calories that would otherwise be stored.
Similar to the B vitamins, chromium found in Moringa helps break down fat and carbohydrates as well. Chromium is a trace mineral that assists our bodies in processing fat and carbs into energy quickly and efficiently. It is known to give people an energy kick, especially during intense physical activity and workouts.
Moringa is an ideal superfood for weight loss because it is natural, raw and, here at Moringa Source, we serve it in its purest form without any chemical or fillers. We grow our Moringa on our own eco-friendly sustainable USDA certified organic farm and package our products in the US. “The Miracle Tree,” a.k.a. Moringa, may not grow in your area, but we can bring it to you in a variety of ways that suit your lifestyle including daily supplement Moringa capsules, Moringa powder, Moringa extract or Moringa tea.
Whichever way suits your lifestyle, we hope you bring a healthy dose of Moringa to your holiday season. Your weight loss or weight maintenance goals don’t have to be derailed from holiday eating. Make a choice, make a plan and get your metabolism ready for the tastes of the holidays!
