Moringa for brain
Anti-oxidants, amino acids, folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E are among the best brain food ingredients. You may be surprised to know that moringa leaves are saturated with all these compounds. Vitamin C is one of the vitamins that can function as anti-oxidant. Moringa leaves have Quercetin and kaempferol which are unique anti-oxidants.
Vitamin E for brain functions are good once you take them with their potencies mentioned in the labels. This vitamin E may be processed from the leaves fruits roots or seeds of the plant. They are not subjected to high temperature, irradiation and no chemicals.
But synthetic vitamins have no micro minerals and they will utilize body’s own mineral reserves. When you consume natural vitamins, they will not make the body to exhaust body’s own nutrient reserves. They can substitute any nutrients, which are missing from the synthetic vitamins.
Organic vitamin supplements are processed from herbal plant produces without applying high temperature or gaseous irradiation. They are packed in air tight containers to ensure stability. Entire vitamins in the natural products could be retained, if they are processed without irradiation or chemicals.

When you take moringa tea for few days, you will be able to feel the surge in energy levels. This energy is permanent with folic acid and rich tryptophan in leaves. Increased serotonin levels in the body can calm done the nerves as they function as neurotransmitter. Essential amino acid L-tryptophan (LT) has the intermediate metabolite 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which is involved in the biosynthesis of serotonin.
This compound 5-HTP cannot be shunt into niacin or protein production process. Therapeutic use of 5-HTP bypasses the conversion of LT into 5-HTP by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, which is the actual rate-limiting step in the serotonin synthesis.
Researchers found that 5-HTP can easily overcome the blood-brain barrier. It increases central nervous system, synthesis of serotonin. In the CNS, serotonin levels have been implicated in the regulation of pain sense, depression, anxiety, hunger and sleep.
Moringa leaves have 5 HTP, Iron and zinc, which support the brain to function more efficiently. They have been found to increase mental clarity. They do not have any side effects unless you are on blood thinning medications. You can take moringa oleifera tea regularly to achieve excellent brain activity.
