Citrus Moringa Tonic With Mint

moringa tonic

When you mix up a moringa tonic, you’re making yourself a healing drink that is absolutely FULL of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals! [1].

Indeed the medicinal benefits of moringa are pretty impressive and are down to all of the natural anti-inflammatories it contains.

High levels of vitamin C, protein, fibre, essential amino acids, omega fatty acids, polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids and alkaloids.
And large numbers of antioxidant compounds, including allergy-busting quercetin, kaempferol, glucomoringin, luteolin acid, gallic acid and rutin, to name a few.

All of these nutrients make moringa very effective at mopping up free-radicals and reducing oxidative damage.  This means it’s great for protecting organs against damage caused by toxins and chronic disease.  As well as helping to reverse disease processes.

In scientific trials, serious conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, stomach ulcers, hepatitis, fibrosis, kidney disease and cancer have all been helped by treatment with moringa extracts.  It really is one of the best healing superfoods you can get.

For now let’s take a look at this simple and refreshing moringa tonic recipe…

Healing Citrus Moringa Tonic With Mint

Ingredients

  • 1 litre of fresh filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons of organic moringa powder
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • a few fresh mint leaves
  • liquid stevia or a little raw honey, to taste

Method

1  Fill a large glass jug with the water, stir in all the other ingredients.

2  Leave the moringa tonic to sit for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator.  This allows all the nutrients and flavours to infuse into the water.

3  Serve in a glass with ice, sit back and sip away for maximum relaxation.

Plus…Hot Moringa Toddy!

And as a seasonal alternative to this moringa tonic, why not boil the water instead and stir in all the ingredients to make a hot moringa toddy!

One of the BEST things about moringa is that its nutrient content doesn’t appear to be lost through heating and cooking.  And in fact some of its nutrient levels, such as iron, are actually increased through boiling [1a].  Which is a particular bonus if you have iron deficiency.
So making a hot toddy with moringa, seems like a seriously good idea!

You could also add a spoonful of moringa powder to many other healing drinks, like a good cucumber cooler, stress-relieving catnip tea or liver detox juice, to really maximise their antioxidant content.

For a good quality organic moringa powder, try Aduna’s Miracle Tree powder on Amazon UK or Zen Principle’s Moringa on Amazon US.
