Moringa Capsules, Nature’s Multi-Vitamin

As we head into fall, great ready to really focus on staying healthy. This is the time of year when occasional sneezes turn into seemingly permanent runny noses and minor coughs land us in bed for a week. Yes, germs are spreading as fast as you can read this blog and avoiding them completely is impossible. With Moringa Capsules, nature’s multi-vitamin, you can strengthen your body and get ready to take on whatever the season has in store.

That’s because Moringa Capsules contains over 90 plant-based nutrients that boost your immune system and elevate your entire body. These include antioxidants that scavenge free radicals, nutrients that reduce swelling, amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and a host of other body-loving phyto-nutrients.

All of these powerful nutrients in Moringa Capsules help keep germs and pathogens from damaging the body you’ve worked so hard to keep healthy. Moringa Capsules have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties that help ward off potential illness this season and all year long. Even if you can’t avoid the germs you can strive to prevent them from harming your body.

Moringa is one of the most potent superfoods in antioxidants. This is incredibly important for your immune health because antioxidants help maintain the integrity and strength of your cells. As free radicals enter your body through UV rays, environmental exposures, products you wear, foods you eat and water you drink (and the list could go on), they cause oxidative stress on cells. This not only speeds up the aging process, it may also cause mutations that can spread and turn into life-threatening disease.

When you eat a diet rich in antioxidants and take superfood supplements like Moringa Capsules you are taking a very simple step that makes a huge difference in your body. Antioxidants support cells by repairing the damage done by free radicals and strengthening them so they are not harmed by future attacks. And the more antioxidants you consume and the greater diversity of them you get in your diet, the harder they will work as healing and protective agents for your cells.

Moringa also supports your body in other ways that improve your sustained health. Packed with brain-boosting nutrients like essential fatty acids and amino acids, Moringa Capsules help you focus, achieve more mental clarity and improve alertness. Moringa Capsules also help lower blood pressure and improve circulation within normal limits so your cardiovascular system works optimally. With more oxygenated blood flowing freely you’ll enjoy more energy, stamina for physical exercise, emotional wellbeing and mental longevity.

Don’t let the germy season bring you down. Take nature’s multi-vitamin, Moringa Capsules, twice daily and you’ll feel on top of the world.

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!

5 Things You Should Do for Your Health Every Day

Our goal at Zokiva is to help you create your best self in every aspect of your life. That is why our line of Moringa products, nutritional supplements and energy teas contribute to not only your physical health, but also your mental and emotional health and wellness. We know that this holistic approach will yield the most positive results in a natural and sustainable way.  

To achieve vitality, there are basic elements of healthy living we should incorporate into our lives every day. Our bodies thrive on periods of energy and rest, both of which are important to overall health and wellness. We believe there are five things you should be doing daily to keep your body, mind and emotions in balance. As you will see, they are not difficult tasks. In fact, you’ve heard them all before and perhaps you already practice many of them. If not, we hope you’ll stop and think about how to put these easy steps into action in your life for your best self.

1)  Eat a Balanced Diet: Some of us eat to live and others live to eat. Whichever philosophy is yours, nutrition is vital to every facet of your health. Each of us has unique nutritional needs based on our size and amount of physical activity, but in general bodies need a balance of protein, vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy. For many of us, the tricky part comes in trying to get enough of each of these food groups while also keeping our fat, calorie and sodium intake in check.

One of the best ways to ensure you are getting the nutrients your body needs is by taking a daily supplement. And of course, what better supplement could we suggest than Moringa! Moringa is nature’s best source of over 90 bio-nutrients that our bodies crave. From amino acids and proteins, to a range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, Moringa is the all-natural superfood supplement. With just two Moringa capsules in the morning and two Moringa capsules at night, you can round out your balanced diet for optimal health. Or try incorporating our USDA certified organic Moringa Powder or energizing Moringa tea into you diet for an extra boost of nutrition and vitality.

And don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Eight to ten ounces per day is recommended, or more if you exercise regularly or work in extreme weather conditions. One great way to get a burst of energy and nutrients while ensuring you fulfill your daily water needs is through nutritional teas. You’ll stay hydrated and benefit from the amazing nutrients that all-natural teas can offer. Plus, they taste great and have terrific weight loss effects.

2)  Be Physically Active: Some of us cringe at the word “exercise,” but maybe you just need to shift your perspective. Exercise includes any physical activity that increases your heart rate for at least 30 minutes. It’s recommended to have some level of physical exertion 5-7 times a week. That can be an interval class at the gym, a brisk walk in the park, swimming laps in the pool or playing a game of soccer. If time is your excuse, try to find ways to include spurts of activity in your daily routine. How about squats while you brush your teeth? Stairs instead of the elevator? Maybe some arm exercises while you listen in on a conference call? Be creative…and be active! Not only is physical activity good for your body, it keeps your mind agile, endorphins flowing and pumps up your energy level.

3) Find Ways to Unwind: You can love your life and still find it stressful. Most of us have some level of stress so it’s important to find time to decompress and let our bodies repair from long hours of concentration, emotionally draining situations and physical activity. Relaxation can actually reduce risk of heart disease, support healthier immune systems, improve memory and improve skin quality, among other benefits. So add some “time for me” on your to do list every day.

4) Be Kind: If simply being nice isn’t something you practice for others, do it for yourself. Studies show that being kind and having positive interactions with others can improve our health. Most of us feel good about showing kindness to others, which is the body’s chemical response to being altruistic and making an impact on another life, our environment or anything else that has value to us. These positive effects have been measured in actions as small as compassionate meditation and smiling at others. Even the small actions can have big results!

5)  Make Good Choices: Lifestyle factors play a large role in our health and happiness. Luckily, we have the choice to take good care of our bodies through our actions. For example, smoking and obesity are two risk factors for many life-threatening diseases including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Avoiding smoke or making the decision to quit can impact your health in a very positive way.

Also, being vigilant and taking personal responsibility for our own health is essential. Know your body and seek professional help when anything seems off kilter. This includes regular dentist visits, eye exams and breast exams. Many health issues are easier to resolve if detected early.

We know that every new day brings new challenges. As humans, perfection is unnecessary, but excellence is something we can achieve. Work towards these five lifestyle goals every day and we expect you’ll hit excellent in no time!

Benefits of Moringa: The Top 10 Reasons You Should Take Moringa NOW

Imagine a plant so potent it contains more than the daily recommendations of the essential nutrients you need. Imagine a plant so powerful that it can enhance your health and wellness routines and assist in keeping your body in tip-top condition. Imagine a plant that can improve your body on physical, cognitive and emotional levels, all while giving you incredible energy. Now you can stop imagining and start believing. Moringa is the plant that can deliver all of this, and much, much more!

Moringa has been called “The Miracle Tree” because its benefits are seemingly endless. We’re breaking out the top 10 benefits of Moringa to show why you should make Moringa a part of your daily routine right now.

10) Moringa for Energy: Moringa is one of the most wholesome, all-natural sources of sustained energy. And it’s not because it is infused with way too much caffeine. Moringa is naturally caffeine-free, but because it is bursting with the best nutrients available, it effortlessly sustains energy levels from morning to night. So replace those 3 cups of coffee with all-natural Zokiva Moringa tea and you’ll enjoy the immediate benefits of Moringa.

9) Moringa for Stable Blood Sugar Levels: If you’ve ever experienced a blood sugar drop, you know that it affects your entire body and mental state too. Diabetics may be all too familiar with that feeling. Moringa is a superfood with over 90 bio-nutrients that can help us naturally maintain healthy blood sugar levels throughout the day, even if our diet is slightly askew. For those with diabetes or anyone with a busy, hectic life, having a baseline of proper nutrients streaming through our bodies can make a world of difference.

8) Moringa as an Anti-Inflammatory: Inflammation is a natural response in our bodies, but prolonged and intense inflammation can be dangerous and painful. Moringa is a natural anti-inflammatory because, in addition to containing a range of free-radical fighting antioxidants, it also hosts numerous anti-inflammatory compounds that can prevent swelling and ease pain.

7) Moringa for Restful Sleep: Aren’t we all so much happier when we feel rested? Moringa is a natural sleep-aid that not only produces calming effects, but also helps us achieve longer, more restful sleep. Moringa contains all eight essential amino acids, which stimulate sleep-inducing hormones. Rest assured, Moringa is better than any chemically generated sleeping pill.

6) Moringa for Better Exercising: Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand. We need energy for physical activity and when our bodies are filled with great nutrition, we can workout harder with better results. As one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet, Moringa not only helps provide that nutrition base we need to exercise, but it also helps retain muscle density and reduces inflammation by combating free radicals. Additionally, Moringa helps repair the body after exercise, reducing recovery times significantly.

5) Moringa for Emotional Wellbeing: We can all attest, when our emotions are in check, we are more productive and focused people. For some, achieving emotional balance is harder than improving physical health because it is much more subjective. While we each must reflect, reduce stress and make positive lifestyle choices for the sake of our emotional health, we can prime our bodies for balance. Proper nutrition and energy from natural sources like Moringa can set the stage for improved emotional wellbeing.

4) Moringa for Mental Focus and Clarity: Like our emotions, our brains need ideal nutrition to transmit messages throughout our bodies. When we lack good nutrition and adequate water intake, our energy levels are low and our minds can become sluggish. Moringa gives the brain some pep by providing a nutritious, raw superfood supplement that complements a healthy, clean diet. Antioxidants, amino acids, omega-3s and Vitamin E are among the best brain food ingredients and Moringa is saturated with all of them.

3) Moringa for Healthy Blood Pressure Levels: Improved blood health is one of the major benefits of Moringa. Blood is essential for carrying nutrients and oxygen around our bodies and eliminating toxins. When blood pressure rises due to negative reactions to stress, plaque-clogged arteries or elevated blood sugar levels, heart disease can occur. Moringa can help keep blood pressure levels within a normal, healthy range.

2) Moringa for Weight-Loss: Unnecessary excess calories often pop into our diets when we do not feel satiated by the foods we consume. But when our bodies feel satisfied from proper nutrition and great-tasting, natural foods, we tend to not overeat. And most studies show, the bottom line to weight loss is balancing the calories you take in versus the calories you burn off. Moringa can help reduce overall caloric intake by sustaining fullness through superior nutrients, helping you stay fuller longer and avoid overeating. Plus, more energy means a more active metabolism and more potential for physical activity to burn calories the all-natural way.

1) Moringa for Anti-Aging: Perhaps the holy grail of Moringa benefits is anti-aging. Antioxidants reduce the effects of damaging free radicals within our bodies and on our skin. Anti-aging strategies begin from the inside out, so ensuring our physical condition is strong will also help us look and feel younger. A daily regimen of Zokiva Moringa capsules can set you on the path to vitality and a longer, healthier life.
