Vaidya Mishra absolutely loved Moringa. He called it “a divine plant,” a great gift of Mother Nature, because it carried a perfect combination of detoxifying and rejuvenative properties simultaneously! This makes the Moringa plant 100% balancing. But here’s the best news: not only do the ancient ayurvedic texts recommend Moringa, but the scientific community keeps publishing papers that attest to the incredible nutritional, therapeutic and prophylactic properties of this ancient divine plant. 

Moringa is a fast-growing drought-resistant tree native to the Indian subcontinent. In India, it is also known as drumstick tree. In Sanskrit, it is called “shigru” – which means fast-acting. Its leaves and fruit – drumstick – are edible, but the Moringa tree is key for our health, specially during seasonal detox. 

Here’s what Modern science has confirmed about Moringa: 

  • Regulate Blood Sugar Levels
  • Enhance Digestive Health
  • Purify/detoxify blood
  • Boosts immunity
  • Facilitate stronger bone development
  • Help prevent Respiratory Diseases
  • Boost female sexual health

But that’s not all! Moringa carries: 

  • 7 times more Vit C than an orange
  • 3 times more potassium than a banana
  • 3 times the amount of iron found in almonds
  • 25 times more iron than in spinach
  • 4 times more calcium than in milk
  • 2 times more protein than in milk

And if this is still not enough to wow you, it has

  • 47 different antioxidants

The greater potency of vitamin C and potassium, along with calcium, protein, iron, and amino acids, help your body heal and build muscle. It’s also packed with antioxidants, substances that can protect cells from damage and boost your immune system.

All of this in just one plant!

Moringa thrives where other plants and ingredients fail. Although the plant’s many parts are used – leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit and even bark – in the Vedic tradition, the leaves and the fruit are particularly favored in cooking, for daily nourishment and detoxification, alone or with some lentils (mung or masoor preferably). SVA recommends using it daily for nourishment and detoxification because it is very effective in ridding the bone tissue of accumulated toxic waste. Since it targets the bone tissue, it is then also good for the blood and fat tissue – toxins travel through the blood, the muscle and then the fat before reaching the bone as one is built on the other. As a side-benefit, moringa also supports the detoxification of the liver. There are also some additional benefits to consuming Moringa on a regular basis:

  • It is great for eyes, skin – it detoxifies the skin and nourishes the eyes
  • It can help lower cholesterol since it supports the liver and purifies the fat tissue
  •  It can help with joint pain resulting from the local accumulation of toxins because its primary action is to detoxify tissues, particularly the fat tissue
  • Long-term use supports our immune system. 

It is tridoshic – balancing for vata, pitta, and kapha – however, if you are a high pitta body type, make sure to always cook it with a pitta pacifying masala. Alternately, you can use the SVA Moringa Soup Mix which has been formulated to be balancing for all three doshas.

Enjoy Moringa in of the many formats that Vaidya Mishra made available for us: as a powder for soup; as a delicious tea blend; as concentrated nectar drops in your water; or even transdermally as a soap – see the beautiful results on your skin daily!

Many a times it is not possible to get fresh Moringa leaves or drumsticks, as well as Taro Root – an excellent binder necessary for detox. This is one of the primary reasons Vaidya Mishra made his ready-to-go Moringa Soup Powder mix. Another reason was of course to give us all a quick healthy ayurvedic soup recipe that would be ready in minutes to support our overall diet and detox – whenever we are too tired too cook or even think about what to cook!

This ayurvedic instant soup mix is versatile and your imagination is literally the limit! You can add 1 tablespoon of Moringa Soup Powder to any ingredients. You can mix it in with lentils, or vegetables, or chicken etc). But below is a delicious and healthy detox recipe.

We know you are going to love it – specially since it takes less than 10 minutes to assemble and enjoy!
