Moringa is considered by many experts to be the most nutrient-rich plant food source on the planet. Included in its 90 nutrients are 12 vitamins and minerals, 46 antioxidants and 18 amino acids, including a high concentration of all 9 of the essential amino acids.

However, many people who aren’t extremely familiar with nutritional science might not know exactly what amino acids are or why they’re important to the body. Here’s a brief overview:

Amino acids can be considered the building blocks of protein in the body. This means they play an extremely important role, as about 20 percent of the human body is made up of protein. In fact, just about every biological process that occurs in our body is aided by the presence of protein.

Many people know that protein is important for building muscle and tissue. Therefore, a large portion of cells, muscles and tissue is basically made of amino acids. These amino acids give structure to cells and help to store and transport nutrients to where they need to go. They assist in the function of many of our vital organs, glands, arteries and tendons, and are absolutely essential for healing wounds and making repairs to damaged tissue, especially in bones, muscle, hair. Finally, they play a huge role in the removal of waste deposits.

Basically, amino acids help with just about every important bodily function you can image. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that the vast majority of doctors agree that a large supply of amino acids in the foods we eat can have very positive effects on the health of your body.

Unfortunately there are many factors that we encounter in the real world that can damage our amino acid supplies. For example, inhaling pollution from the burning of fossil fuels can damage them, as can smoking or eating overly processed or fertilized food.

The best supplies of amino acids are found in fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and more. Of those, moringa has been proven to have some of the most abundant amino acid sources.
