Kale, in recent years, has completely taken over the nutritional food and superfood market. I mean, we see it presented in virtually every salad, smoothie, and juice cleanse so naturally, people would assume it is the most nutritious plant in the world. Although Kale possesses an array of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that many other superfoods we know, don’t give, there are a multitude of questions being asked surrounding the upcoming Moringa plant, and it’s competition against Kale.
KALE Kale is a nutrient-dense, leafy green vegetable closely related to broccoli and Brussel sprouts. It is most prevalent in Europe and the United States and is located in a wide variety of places around the world as well. Kale is a versatile food, can be used in milkshakes and smoothies, can be boiled, eaten raw, steamed, or even used as table dressing, and is available in most supermarkets. When examining the nutritional aspect of kale, it is known for its high levels of calcium, iron, beta-carotene, and Vitamin C, and is also known to protect against certain cancers as it contains carotenoids and phytochemicals.

Grown in subtropical areas, the Moringa Oleifera tree, better known as the “Miracle Tree” is considered to be amongst the most nutritious plants ever discovered. The fresh Moringa powder, derived from the Moringa tree, is deep green and has a potent nutty smell. Moringa is found to contain a higher ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score, approximately 157,000, than most foods known to have antioxidant capabilities (acai berries, blueberries, dark chocolate, garlic, goji berries, and green tea to name a few).
The high ORAC allows the plant to contain seven times the amount of Vitamin C found in oranges, double the amount of protein found in milk, four times as much calcium and Vitamin A, and three times the potassium found in bananas. While many home-grown and naturopathic supplements have a few health benefits, the Moringa plant has plenty of benefits. Recent scientific research has proven that the plant is not based on sugar and therefore is a powerhouse of nutritional value and a natural energy booster. Its detoxifying effect comes from its ability to purify water. Moringa acts as a coagulant adding itself to toxic materials and bacteria, a process that occurs inside the human body as well.
