Moringa is a wide range nutritional plant. It grows mostly in semi-arid regions. All parts of this plant can be consumed. Moringa supplies all eight essential amino acids which supports life. Grown in Wild Crafted soil, Golden Leash Pet Products™ Moringa is non-toxic, and non-GMO, making it a very safe source of supplementation.
There are multiple studies conducted on Moringa – all identified a long list of benefits. The amazing Moringa Oleifera didn’t earn the “superfood” title without years of research and study.
Moringa leaves are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals. One cup (21 grams) of chopped fresh Moringa leaves contain the following nutrients:
• Protein: 2 grams
• Vitamin B6: 19% of the RDA
• Vitamin C: 12% of the RDA
• Iron: 11% of the RDA
• Riboflavin (B2): 11% of the RDA
• Vitamin A (from beta-carotene): 9% of the RDA
• Magnesium: 8% of the RDA
In addition to the nutritious value of Moringa, research identified several key benefits.
Rich in Antioxidants, moringa is rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene – Quercetin and Chlorogenic Acid. . It was concluded that Quercetin may help to lower blood pressure. Chlorogenic Acid may help in managing blood sugar. In one study, documented in the Journal of Food Science and Technology, Moringa “significantly increased antioxidant levels”.
In another study, documented in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, Moringa was found to reduce the increase in blood sugar by 21%. In another study, Moringa was found to reduce fasting blood sugar by 13.5%. These studies concluded that consuming Moringa may lead to long term reduced blood sugar levels.
Inflammation is an other area where consuming Moringa has marked success. In several studies it was determined that consuming Moringa limited, in certain cases, reduced inflammation significantly. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine sites Moringa, with its high nutritional value, was similar or superior to other fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs which show anti-inflammatory properties found in cruciferous group of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
We discovered along the way that our dogs loved Moringa. We’ve been adding a sprinkle of Moringa to their food for a while now. Our older doxie has become more perky, has more energy and actually runs on our walks. Our little chihuahua, who is less than a year, has a silky shiny coat and of course a bundle of energy.
With this discovery, we decided to create a Golden Leash Pet Products Moringa™ Pet Mix specifically for dogs. Then we thought about cats, deciding to include them. We also created a line of pet mixes for birds and horses.
