Tickle your Tastebuds with Moringa Flavored Teas

Do you need to put a little pep in your tea cup this summer?  We have just the drink for you.  Our Moringa Flavored Teas are not only nutritious and delicious, but they’ll also give you that pick-me-up that you need to rev your summer. 

Moringa is one of the most nutritious and powerful plants in the world.  With nearly 100 bio-nutrients, Moringa contains an unbelievable concentration of the nutrients our bodies need most.  These include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and phyto-compounds.  Pound for pound Moringa contains more Vitamin C than oranges, calcium than milk, Vitamin A than carrots, potassium than bananas and iron than spinach.  When it comes to superfoods, Moringa is the leader of the pack. 

Of course with all those essential nutrients, Moringa has tremendous health benefits.  It supports every bodily system in some way or another.  Moringa boosts immune health by stimulating more powerful immune responses and defends, protects and rejuvenates damaged cells for an overall stronger body.  It supports cardiovascular and brain health, stronger muscles and bones, and improves blood sugar and blood pressure levels within normal limits.  Moringa is known to help boost cognition and mental clarity as well as emotional stability and well-being. 

Moreover, Moringa gives the body a burst of energy better than any cup of coffee, sugary drink or caffeine stimulant.  Moringa helps oxygenate blood to keep blood flowing to the brain, heart and throughout the body. This energizes the entire system, causing you to be more alert, focused and motivated both physically and mentally.  Moringa also satisfies the body’s basic nutritional needs to allow for energy to be used as you need it.  When blood glucose is stable, your body and brain can concentrate on your daily tasks rather than trying to find internal balance from poor nutrition.

What could be even better than all of the health benefits of Moringa?  Add in a flavor explosion and you’ve got the best summer tea combination EVER!  Zokiva’s collection of Moringa Flavored Teas comes in a variety of flavors that will tickle your tastebuds for every occasion.   We have minty fresh Peppermint Moringa Tea and Spearmint Moringa Tea; tropical and fruity Caribbean Crush Moringa Tea, Tangy Orange Moringa Tea and Berry Rush Moringa Tea; a smooth traditional take in our Chamomile and Rose Moringa Tea; or a combo with extra nutrients in our Yerba Mate and Hibiscus Moringa Tea.

With a different flavor for every mood, time of day and occasion, we know you’ll enjoy the stimulating, titillating, exhilarating flavors of our Moringa Loose Leaf Tea blends this summer.  Cheers!

10 Reasons to Take Moringa in 2016

Moringa is undoubtedly one of the most nutritious superfoods in the world.  It supports full body health and wellness in many incredible ways – almost too many to count.  As we head into the New Year with hopes of improving ourselves and a newfound commitment to getting and staying healthy, we want to share 10 reasons to add Moringa to your diet in 2016.

  • Moringa is a fantastic multi-nutrient supplement. Does your multi-vitamin contain nearly 100 bio-nutrients?  Bursting with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and many other phyto-nutrient compounds, Moringa rivals any daily supplement as a simple way to help ensure you’re getting balanced nutrition every day.
  • Moringa gives you a natural energy boost. Nothing beats natural energy and with all those nutrients packed into Moringa, it offers the purest natural energy around.  Without caffeine jitters or sugar rushes, Moringa sustains energy throughout the day to help you be your best, most energized self all day long.
  • Moringa has tremendous antioxidants. With over 40 powerful and diverse antioxidants, Moringa helps strengthen the immune system and fight off free radicals all at once.  Healing, protective and disease-combating antioxidants are a critical part of preventative healthcare.
  • Moringa is a whole food. With the perfect balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates, not to mention a ton of phyto-nutrients, Moringa is a whole food superfood unto itself.  That is why it is used by the World Health Organization to effectively and efficiently sustain malnourished populations around the world. 
  • Moringa is good for the brain. Moringa contains all 23 amino acids that aid neurotransmitter processing in the brain and essential fatty acids including Omega-3 fatty acids that are amazing for brainpower.  Plus, it has lots of iron to boost blood flow to the brain for improved mental focus and clarity.
  • Moringa is good for the heart. Antioxidants, vitamins and minerals found in Moringa help relax the heart muscle and encourage smooth, regular contractions.  Plus, iron oxygenates healthy blood and blood flow and Moringa is known to reduce LDL cholesterol levels within normal limits. 
  • Moringa supports emotional balance. Nutrition is deeply connected to the way we feel.  When our nutritional needs are met, it keeps our mental and emotional state in check.  The nutrients in Moringa also help stimulate natural chemical reactions and neurotransmitters that are responsible for feelings of happiness and contentment. 
  • Moringa reduces the signs of aging. By helping cleanse and maintain normal bodily functions, Moringa helps slow the internal aging process and reduces the body burden on your system that leads to degenerative conditions.  Externally, Moringa’s concentration of antioxidants has remarkable age-defying effects on skin, creating a more youthful appearance.
  • Moringa increases physical strength and stamina. Amino acids found in Moringa are the building blocks of protein, which are required for the break-down and repair of the muscle growth process.  And, the vast nutrients in Moringa, especially electrolytes, help increase stamina and endurance, while decreasing recovery time after workouts.
  • Moringa is simple to add to your daily health regimen. Available in daily capsules, powder, tea bags, loose leaf tea and oil, Moringa is a versatile and easy-to-use daily supplement.  With just four Moringa capsules a day, 2-3 cups of Moringa tea or adding Moringa powder to almost any dish, you can boost your daily nutritional content exponentially.  Lush Moringa oil is also a wonderful natural healing and age-defying skin treatment for topical use.

Make Moringa part of your healthy New Year!  All of us at Zokiva wish you and yours much health and wellness in 2016!

Introducing our All-New Zokiva Organic Flavored Moringa Teas

As the weather cools and we’re all trying to stay warm and healthy during cold and flu season, nothing could be more comforting and nutritious than our new organic flavored Moringa teas.  We’ve been offering you the best organic Moringa tea for a long time, but now you can enjoy each sip with a vibrant new flavor twist.  With four new choices – Caribbean Crush, Peppermint, Tangy Orange and Berry Rush – your entire body, including your taste buds, will delight in our scrumptious Moringa tea.

The benefits of Moringa are vast and couldn’t be more relevant during the colder winter months when coughs, colds, congestion and the flu plague many households.  Moringa contains nearly 100 plant-based bio-nutrients that support every area of our health.  With a range of diverse antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids, it supplies the body with superior nutrition for sustained energy to tackle life’s daily tasks and physical demands, keeps our bodies full and satisfied for longer, boosts mental focus and clarity, improves emotional balance, and has incredible age defying effects inside and outside the body.

Caribbean Crush:  If you crave the sweetness of tropical fruits, you’ll lose yourself in our cocktail of pineapple, coconut, apple, rose hips and hibiscus.  Even if you’re staying home this winter season, our Caribbean Crush Moringa Tea will make you feel as warm and cozy as lying on a tropical beach.Now, with Zokiva’s organic Moringa flavored teas, you can enjoy the benefits of Moringa with added zest.  Our four flavor blends offers something for everyone!

Peppermint:  In addition to the many benefits of Moringa, the dried peppermint leaves in our Peppermint Moringa Tea increases the nutrients and supports digestive health and emotional stability.  The cool, minty flavor will freshen your breath and your entire outlook.

Tangy Orange:  Bursting with juicy citrus appeal, our Tangy Orange Moringa Tea offers a mixture of orange, rose hips and hibiscus for a scintillating experience.  Oranges add extra antioxidants from a plethora of Vitamin C, making it a terrific choice for immune health this fall and winter.

Berry Rush:  Sweet and tasty, our Berry Rush Moringa Tea combines blueberries, cranberries, apples and hibiscus to truly give you a “rush” of delicious flavor.  Kids and adults will crave this naturally sweet way to boost nutrition and energy.

Naturally caffeine-free, our all-natural Organic Moringa Flavored Loose Leaf Tea comes in 4 oz. seal-tight canisters.  It’s so pure and wholesome, you can see the natural flavor pieces in each blend.  

This immune-compromising season, support yourself and your family with the best nutritious and the most scrumptious flavors with Zokiva’s Organic Moringa Flavored Teas.  Cheers to your health!

What is Moringa Tea

Moringa Tea is an energizing, body-boosting drink from nature that has amazing health benefits for every aspect of the body.  Once an ancient medicinal and therapeutic secret, Moringa products, especially Moringa Tea, has become the latest and greatest health trend that here’s to stay. 

Known as “The Miracle Tree,” Moringa contains nearly 100 bio-nutrients that support full body health.  Moringa Tea packs in more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids (all 23 of them to be exact!), proteins, essential fatty acids and other phyto-nutrients than almost any tea on the planet.  In fact, Moringa is one of the most antioxidant-rich superfoods in the world, beating most berries and other nutrient-dense plants. 

Antioxidants are an essential part of the human diet.  They help protect cells from damaging free radicals that invade our bodies through the sun and other environmental sources.  Although free radicals are unavoidable in our modern lives, working to protect our bodies by consuming a diet full of antioxidants is entirely possible.  Moringa Tea is one of the very best ways to absorb a range of antioxidants including vitamins A, B complex, C, E and K, zinc, caretenoids, zeatin, chlorophyll, quercetin and selenium, to name a few.

Antioxidants help prevent cellular damage that can lead to cell mutations and disease, and can also repair and reverse the harmful effects of free radicals that have already attacked cells.  This makes Moringa Tea a terrific disease-preventative measure for every day health.  Additionally, Moringa Tea helps promote a stronger immune system so antioxidants are working in conjunction with the body’s natural defenses to elevate health and wellness.  

With all of the phenomenal and unprecedented nutrients found in Moringa, it’s no wonder Moringa Tea provides an incredible caffeine-free energy boost.  As the body is energized, blood flows freely throughout the body giving more physical, emotional and mental strength, endurance and stamina to tackle life’s everyday tasks.  Moringa Tea supports better heart function with lowered cholesterol, normal blood pressure, stable blood sugar levels and a regular heart beat.  Proteins and amino acids in Moringa Tea help build muscle, aid in the break-down and repair of muscle fibers and reduce recovery time after strenuous activity.  

Similarly, Moringa Tea is excellent for the brain as it assists smooth blood flow to the brain for improved mental focus and clarity, better memory and a broader cognitive capacity.  Moringa may even help prevent and manage symptoms of degenerative brain diseases by stimulating neurotransmitters that can sometimes become weak or impaired. Also, Moringa supports emotional balance and wellbeing by helping relax the body and reduce anxiety and stress.

Because Moringa is oozing with antioxidants and other body-craving nutrients, it offers age-defying benefits internally and externally.  As we age, every aspect of our bodies become weak and begins to deteriorate.  Antioxidants can help bodies look and feel younger by slowing the aging process of cells.  This is most apparent on skin, where aging is more noticeable.  Moringa Tea encourages smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and promoting cell turnover for a more youthful appearance. 

Sipping Mother Nature’s gift from “The Miracle Tree” can’t get any easier than with Zokiva’s Moringa Tea.  Add this delicious and nutritious tea to your health regimen for incredible health benefits to support your best day, every day.

What is Moringa?

Moringa is one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on Earth.  Naturally found in the hot climates of Africa, Asia and South America, Moringa boasts over 90 bio-nutrients that bodies need for strength, energy, health, wellness and vitality.  Its benefits are seemingly endless, which is why it is often referred to as “The Miracle Tree.” 

For many centuries, African and Asian cultures have relied on Moringa as a full body nutritional and medicinal resource.  The physical, emotional and mental benefits of Moringa are phenomenal, making Moringa a rapidly growing superfood supplement in Western cultures as well.  With twice the protein in yogurt, three times the potassium in bananas, four times the calcium in milk and seven times the Vitamin C of oranges, Moringa beats out many common foods that are our “go-to” sources of nutrition.  With a range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, Moringa does a body good, better and best. Available in capsules, powder and tea, Moringa is one of the simplest ways to get all-natural plant-based nutrients to improve the entire body. 

So what are the incredible benefits of Moringa?

First, Moringa energizes the body and mind.  Moringa was named one of the best superfoods to re-energize the body by Dr. Oz.  Moringa’s energy base comes from its potent nutrient content.  When our bodies are fueled with the best nutrition on the planet, we can operate at our best.  Plus with blood-oxygenating nutrients like iron, Moringa helps pump energizing blood to our brains for a sharper mental state and better clarity and focus, and every other inch of our bodies to keep a spring in our step and more energy for our daily lives and activities. 

With energy and that unprecedented nutrition comes another wonderful benefit of Moringa: a boosted metabolism.  Fueling our bodies with the vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and antioxidants that it needs for to function optimally keeps us feeling satisfied without reaching for sugary, fatty foods.  Moringa also revs the metabolism with nutrients like vitamin B and chromium, which help the body digest food properly and break down carbohydrates and fats into energy rather than storing it as fat.  Additionally, with more energy comes more motivation and desire to be active and make healthy lifestyle choices.  The more we move, the more we fat and calories burn immediately, as well as an increased resting metabolic rate. 

Moringa also works to reduce symptoms of several common life-threatening diseases.  With a balance of fat, protein, carbohydrates and fiber, it helps stabilize blood sugar levels, especially in diabetics.  It can also help steady blood pressure levels within a normal range and support healthier blood overall, which reduces risk of heart and stress-related medical conditions.  With over 40 antioxidants, Moringa packs an army of nutrients to protect our cells from free radicals that can cause cancer and helps slow the aging process.  Plus Moringa is potent in many anti-inflammatory nutrients helping reduce risk of inflammation, which causes many diseases.  Moringa offers a boost to the immune system too.  With all that Vitamin C, plus the immune-lifting power of Vitamins A, B, D and E, and elements including zinc and selenium, Moringa strengthens the body’s defense against all sorts of foreign invaders in the form of colds, flues, viruses, infections and bacteria.

Moringa has a host of other benefits as well.  It helps achieve emotional balance through improved nutrition as well as stimulants that trigger calming chemical and hormonal effects. For similar reasons, Moringa can help you realize more restful restorative sleep and is also a fantastic nutrient for refreshing, repairing and invigorating skin and hair.

Taking Moringa is one of the best choices you can make for your health today and for your future.  Judging from the 4,000-year old ancient tradition in its native homelands, Moringa is a powerful tool for health, wellness and longevity that is here to stay.

Moringa, a New Mom’s Superfood

As a mom, we know you are always on the lookout for what is best for your children. Whether you baby is still tucked away in your womb or you have welcomed her into the world already, the health of your baby is probably a top priority for you. There are so many decisions we make for the welfare of our babies, from the best diapers and creams, to developmentally appropriate toys and stimulating activities. But no decision is more significant than how you choose to support your baby’s development through nutrition. And we have an amazing all-natural superfood secret that will take nutrition for you and your baby to a whole new level. It’s called Moringa!

If you are an expecting mom, your body is changing in miraculous ways to create a temporary home for your baby. While the idea of “eating for two” is no longer accepted, getting proper nutrition is essential for your health and that of your baby. A baby’s development depends on the conditions created by the mother, including a well-balanced diet, a low-stress environment and avoiding toxins such as smoke or alcohol. Obstetricians believe moms-to-be only need about 300 additional calories per day to sustain their babies, but food intake should incorporate a range of nutrients in the form of protein, whole grains, dairy (or other forms of calcium), fruits and vegetables.

OBs also recommend daily supplements during pregnancy to ensure all of your baby’s nutritional needs are being met. Preparing for a new baby can be a hectic time, so adding an all-natural nutritional supplement such as Moringa is one of the best decisions you can make for you and baby during pregnancy. With the simplicity of Moringa capsules or Moringa tea, or perhaps baking and cooking with our USDA certified organic Moringa powder, you can boost your nutritional intake by an astounding degree. Moringa provides the vital nutrients – especially additional iron and calcium – an expectant mom needs. Plus Moringa’s array of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein and other nutrients will satisfy and calm the body to reduce cravings and pregnancy nerves, while offering a boost of energy, the all-natural way.

Once your little bundle of joy arrives, you have the opportunity to choose the best way to nourish your baby. You have probably read about the incredible benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and baby. To name just a few, breastfeeding can help to foster smarter and more well-adjusted children, reduce the risk of diseases and create a stong bond between mother and child. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for at least the first year of a baby’s life because breast milk is the perfect food for babies. It is made of the exact combination of nutrients a baby needs and is easy for babies to digest. But the quality of breast milk is also dependant on a mother’s nutrition and there is no better way to boost your nutritional intake that eating right and supplementing with the best natural nutritional superfood, Moringa.

In the chaos of trying to figure out how to raise a new baby, new moms often neglect their own nutritional needs. But the truth is, they are also neglecting the needs of their baby. A mom who is getting the plenty of water and the nutrients she needs – through a proper diet and Moringa – will be better able to meet the demands of a newborn. Moreover, she will be passing along the best possible nutrients to her baby, which will help relax baby, make her sleep better and be more alert as she works towards developmental milestones. Many moms report that Moringa is a great all-natural resource to increase milk supply as well. Plus, Moringa can offer a much-needed pick-me-up that most moms could use, especially for those multiple middle-of-the-night feedings. And while you’re dropping the pregnancy weight naturally through breastfeeding, you’ll also support your weight loss goals through the power of Moringa nutrition!

Since Moringa provides wholesome nutrients for the entire family, it is a supplement that can be incorporated in your children’s diet for years to come. We recommend slipping a few teaspoons into your child’s smoothie, or adding several scoops to your next soup, stew or any type of sauce. Chances are your family won’t even notice it. And you’ll feel great about continuing to offer your family the most nutritious superfood on the planet.

Congrats on the newest member of your family! We wish you much health, happiness and nutrition for years to come!
