Organic Moringa Leaves Powder (Certified Organic by USDA, Control Union and India Organic)
Moringa, or Shigru, is a mid-sized tree that grows throughout the tropical belt around the world. It is commonly known as the 'Drumstick Tree' due to its large bulbous base and tapering thin top, appearing like a giant drumstick stuck in the ground. It forms large spinach-like leaves and pea-like pods both of which are celebrated universally for their remarkably high nutritional value and healing benefits. Containing all essential amino acids in addition to many essential vitamins and minerals, the leaves of the Moringa tree are used all across the world to combat malnutrition by providing much of one's necessary diet in one easy to grow and easy to cook plant.
The nutritional benefits of Moringa are truly amazing, and it has understandably received great acclaim both in the scientific and popular communities around the world for its unique concentration of proteins, vitamins, and minerals. In addition to containing all essential amino acids, Moringa leaves are rich in vitamins A, B, and C, and necessary minerals like calcium and phosphorous. It is popularly noted that "the Moringa leaf bears more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more potassium than bananas, and that the protein quality of Moringa leaves rivals that of milk and eggs". Although these claims may seem incredible, they have been verified by much scientific research as well as use in traditional diets and tonics throughout the millennia.
As a dietary supplement, Moringa is in a small class of plants that have become known as 'superfoods' due to their almost unbelievable nutritional benefits. Recent research has shown that one tablespoon of dried Moringa leaf powder contains 14% of the protein, 40% of the calcium, 23% of the iron and most of the vitamin A needs of a child aged one to three. While six tablespoons contain nearly all of a woman's daily iron and calcium needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Additionally, the seeds are composed of nearly 40% oil, which is itself very high in essential fatty acids and protein. Furthermore, in addition to providing great nutritional benefits, Moringa offers special aid to several common health conditions.
Due to its highly wet and oleaginous nature, the Moringa tree is cooling in nature and high in Kapha. Consequently provides great support to Kapha deficient conditions like arthritis and malnutrition. Taken internally Moringa leaves help to reduce inflammations of the joints where dryness and heat are the cause. They provide the body with necessary lubricants in a cooling medium to reduce swelling and help ease the movement of the joints. In addition, the high concentration of protein, vitamins, and minerals support the sexual functions of both genders which can deplete the body of its essential building blocks. In India, Moringa has been used for thousands of years to enhance male virility, combating erectile dysfunction and fatigue due to sexual activity. It has also been shown to provide general support to women during menstruation and breastfeeding, providing the body with the extra nutrients needed to restore milk and rebuild tissues lost during these activities. Moringa is a remarkable plant that offers nutritional benefits to everyone and special health support to those suffering from those occasional stresses that life presents.

About Gopala Ayurveda:
The Hindi meaning Gopala is 'The Nurturer of the Cow'. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.
The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts. To this end, we have spearheaded research to develop Ayurveda's vast herbal tradition into a comprehensive range of products to support healthiest and longest lives for our customers. These products have been met with warm reception in medical communities all over the world, and continue to serve the personal and healthcare needs of all parts of humanity.
Gopala is a pioneer in purely organic ayurvedic supplements, herbs, and oils. We promote healthy foods and nutritional products, and despite utilizing the benefits of modern science and technology, we train a strict eye on all stages of development and processing to be sure that our products do not suffer contact with any toxic or synthetic chemicals. Since the birth of this project, we have focused on the development of safe and effective remedies that will help people lead richer and healthier lives.
Gopala is not simply organic, which means to be free from any chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives, preservatives, and heavy metals, but we are 100% Certified Organic, meaning that the customer has the added security of the USDA regulatory action which requires that all ingredients in all products be traceable through their processing history and to the place of origin. Consequently, the consumer may know both exactly where and when each herb came from and the circumstances surrounding this journey to their hands. Gopala is unique in this regard. Other manufacturers, having claimed proprietary rights to ancient formulae have taken the liberties of enhancing these revered concoctions with preservatives, synthetic substitutes, and more. We, however, continue this venerable tradition as it has been maintained for thousands of years, in the sole interest of a whole and healthy life.
