How Does Moringa Stack Up Against…Spirulina?

 In Blog, Superfoods

Moringa or spirulina… which one packs the biggest punch when it comes to nutritional value? Both are well known superfoods and have a similar green look to them. They can both be consumed as a powder and capsule or tablet form… but how do the nutritional comparisons stack up?

Moringa is an ancient plant that humans have used for thousands of years, both holistically and as a highly potent natural food source. Moringa is known for its vitamin and mineral content, as well as its all nine essential amino acids. Moringa also has impressed many nutritionists with its ability to increase energy, lower stress, lower cholesterol, increase milk production for nursing mothers, and aid in weight loss.

Spirulina is probably most well known for its high protein content. Spirulina powder is often added to protein powder to up the protein grams. It is often recommended to vegetarians because it is naturally high in iron. But what else does this super-green superfood have to offer?

Here’s a quick comparison of the superfoods. See for yourself which superfood carries the heaviest load of nutrients…

Moringa has…  per 100 grams

  • Iron—4 grams
  • Potassium—337 grams
  • Calcium—185 grams
  • Vitamin C—51.7 grams
  • Protein—9.4 grams
  • Sodium—9 grams

Spirulina has… per 100 grams

  • Iron—28.5 grams
  • Potassium—95 grams
  • Calcium—120 grams
  • Vitamin C—10.1 grams
  • Protein—57 grams
  • Sodium—1,048 grams

While spirulina’s nutrition stacks up nicely, we must take the full picture into view when making a choice on which superfood to purchase. Spirulina does have more protein and iron, but that may be all it has that beats out moringa in the competition.

As you can see, the sodium comparison is stunning. Is that something you have tried to cut back on in your diet?

Moringa’s power protein still contains all nine essential amino acids that the body needs to function. In fact, moringa is considered a complete plant protein. It also is powerful in the iron department as well, containing three times the iron as spinach.

Life style…

Other benefits of Dead Sea Moringa only boosts a healthy lifestyle. As many of us go through life with added daily stressors, it’s not just food intake that promotes health, but our mind and emotions also contribute greatly to our overall wellbeing. Dead Sea Moringa has been shown to promote a healthy immune system that combats illness when the body is stressed.

For healthier lifestyles many of us choose a green smoothie in the morning… but if we are honest, don’t some of those smoothies taste as bad as they look? Watch out for dark green teeth if you add spirulina powder to your smoothie! An alternative is simply taking a bottle of Dead Sea Moringa along with you or keeping it in your desk at work.

Be a smart consumer…

Who doesn’t like to be a smart shopper? This is why it’s important to look at the ingredients added to any supplement. To ensure that our product continues to be something we can stand behind, Dead Sea Moringa complies with the latest FDA standards, and we personally guarantee that our product is 100% pure moringa.

Because we care about you and your health, it is important to us that you research any company from which you plan to purchase. Packaging can be deceiving. For example, ’green’ pasta may have traces of kale or spinach in it, but the amount may be small and there may be so many other ingredients in the product that it completely negates the benefit of the greens.

We also recommend that you ask your doctor if there are conflicts between a supplement and any medicine you are taking. Some combinations of drugs and supplements can potentially be harmful to your health.

Remember that overall nutrition is important, and should never be neglected because you are taking a supplement. Proper exercise and rest will always add benefit to your health plan.
