Nutritional Comparisons

When compared to other power foods, moringa is considered in many scientific studies as nature’s more nutritious leafy green. Gram for gram It’s Moringa products contain:


9 times more Protein than Yogurt

According to Dr. Monica G. Marcu, a clinical pharmacologist and author of the book entitled “Miracle Tree”:

Amino acids are best absorbed from a complex, naturally occurring food or plant source.

Proteins are the building blocks of our bodies are made of amino acids. Usually only animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy contain all of the essential amino acids. It’s Moringa moringa products also contain all the essential amino acids required for protein synthesis. Furthermore, moringa is considered to have the highest protein ratio of any plant or leafy green so far studied on earth. It’s Moringa products have greater than 2 times the protein of milk and eggs, without the fat and calories.

When compared to soy beans, one of the best known and most valuable plant sources of proteins, It’s Moringa dried leaf powder fares VERY well. Soy beans and It’s Moringa products have similar protein quality and quantity. Food scientists once believed that soy proteins were the only plant-based proteins with a quality equal to that of meat, milk and eggs. It’s Moringa dried leaf powder has also been added to this very short list. In addition, the major difference between It’s Moringa products and soy products is that unlike soy, moringa has an amazing content of iron, vitamin C, calcium and other beneficial nutrients that the body needs.


25 times the Iron of Spinach

Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. It is estimated that only 65-70% of all Americans meet their daily recommended intake of iron. Iron is an important trace mineral that is found in every cell of the body, usually combined with protein. The iron density in It’s Moringa products helps to increase body energy production.


15 times the Potassium of Bananas

Classified as an electrolyte in the body, potassium is a mineral that is involved in both electrical and cellular function in the body.Potassium helps regulate heart function and blood pressure. Studies show that a daily recommended allowance of potassium can lower blood pressure. Individuals needing to keep their blood pressure in check and regulate hypertension can benefit from the density of potassium in It’s Moringa products.


17 times More Calcium than Milk

Calcium deficiency is caused by low intakes of calcium for prolonged periods of time. Calcium deficiency is known to cause osteoporosis, oral health problems, and hypertension. With 17 times more calcium than milk, It’s Moringa products provide a rich, non-animal, lactose-free source of calcium.


10 times More Vitamin A than Carrots

Vitamin A when produced by plants provides the beta-carotene anti-oxidant. Beta-carotene is known to protect the body against disease and premature aging by fighting the cell-damaging chemicals called free radicals. As a vegetable source of beta-carotene, It’s Moringa products are fat and cholesterol free (not so with vitamin A from dairy and meat products). Lack of Vitamin A can increase the susceptibility to infectious diseases, as well as cause vision problems.

Essential Amino Acids

  • L-Isoleucine: Regulates and stabilizes blood sugar and energy levels in the body. A deficiency in Isoleucine can lead to symptoms similar to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar.
  • L-Leucine:  Protects muscles and is a fuel for the body when working with the amino acids Valine and Isoleucine. Also, Leucine is the most effective amino acid at causing insulin secretion from the pancreas.
  • L-Valine: Known as a wonderful source of energy for all bodily functions. Also, maintains the metabolism of muscles, proper nitrogen balance and repairs tissues.
  • L-Lysine: Lysine is very important in the formulation of proteins needed in muscles and bones. It also has been shown to be effective in reducing the effects of flus, colds and herpes virus.
  • L-Methionine and Cystine The body’s primary source of sulfur is Methionine. Sulfur assists in the growth of hair, skin and nails as well as increases the production of lecithin in the liver. Lecithin helps to reduce cholesterol and liver fat.
  • L-Tryptophan: Tryptophan is used by the body to assist in making Vitamin B3 – Niacin, Serotonin and Melatonin. Niacin is needed for normal gastrointestinal and nerve processes. Serotonin acts as a calming agent in the brain. Melatonin is crucial in regulating sleep.
  • L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine: Functions on the memory system and learning processes. Used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
  • L-Threonine: Helps to maintain body’s proteins in balance. Studies show that threonine treatment is effective easing symptoms attributed to Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Histidine: An essential amino acid for children,promoting growth and development. Required for the generation of red and white blood cells.
