Spirulina is a naturally occurring bacteria (cyanobacteria) that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients (such as chlorophyll and beta carotene) as well as the only natural source of potent antioxidant phycocyanin. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available on Earth and was even heavily researched by NASA for use as a space food. After water, protein is the second most abundant compound in our bodies and this protein is made up of amino acids. Spirulina contains all the essential and non essential amino acids our bodies need and because it is a bacteria and has no cell wall, digestibility studies suggest that spirulina is up to 95% digestible, making it one of the highest concentrated natural protein sources on Earth and this means it is very effective even in small dosages.
Moringa is a naturally occurring tree and the leaves are harvested and dried and we also encapsulate the powder for ease of use. Most parts of the moringa tree can be used in certain cultures as food and medicines. Moringa is hailed as being the miracle tree and grows easily. Moringa is also packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients as well as some protein. Moringa is widely known for its high calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C levels as well as containing certain properties that make it anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
Both are natural superfoods because of their nutrient profiles; however spirulina contains a lot more protein (amino acids) than Moringa. Next to water protein is the most abundant compound in our bodies and we must get protein (amino acids) from external food sources. However Moringa is higher in certain minerals such as magnesium, potassium and also vitamin C so taking the combination line is ideal for day to day health and immune and energy boosting for all the family, whereas the straight spirulina is great for boosted energy, mood and brain focus. Both spirulina and moringa have probiotic affects and moringa helps aid H. Pylori infections, and we are now seeing through scientific studies that our overall health and wellbeing is directly correlated with our gut health.
