If you haven't heard of moringa, these products offer the perfect introduction.
Moringa is a leafy superfood bursting with nutrients, loaded with antioxidants and linked to numerous health benefits like decreased inflammation and lowered blood pressure. Give it a whirl.
Fact: Dry moringa leaves provide three to five times more nutrients than fresh leaves straight from the tree. Try Biodynamic® Organic Moringa Powder made of purely dried leaves. Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons into any dish or drink, such as soups, shakes or yogurt. $25, mercolamarket.com
