New Moringa Tea Blends

 Moringa Hibiscus Peppermint Tea Bags

 

Zokiva is thrilled to continuously offer the best superfoods Mother Nature has to offer. Sometimes the best creations come from two powerful forces joining together to make a superfood combination. That’s exactly what we’ve done with our new Moringa Tea blends. We’re proud to introduce our newest Moringa Hibiscus Tea and Moringa Peppermint Tea to our herbal tea selections.

Moringa is possibly the healthiest whole food on the planet. So it’s no wonder that blending this superfood with other tremendous herbs like ginger, hibiscus and peppermint yields a nutritional powerhouse and a flavor explosion. Now you can enjoy the benefits of Moringa and some of your favorite herbal teas with a sensational burst that will leave your taste buds craving more.

With nearly 100 bio-nutrients, Moringa stands out among the crowd of superfoods. It is a critical life-sustaining food in certain parts of the world thanks to its perfect combination of nutrients including a wealth of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, protein, fiber and other phenomenal phyto-nutrients. Moringa is known for providing a natural source of caffeine-free energy that can power up and push you through your day. It also fuels your muscles, heart, brain and many other essential organs and bodily functions. Moringa supports everything from improved mental clarity and memory, to physical stamina and endurance. Plus it is an excellent immune booster and has age-defying effects as well.

These extraordinary benefits of Moringa are only enhanced when they are combined with staples in the herbal tea category. Check out how each of our new Moringa Tea Blends can support your best health:

Moringa Hibiscus Tea: Tangy and sweet, this duo benefits just about every organ in your body. From blood pressure and cholesterol support, to liver protection and full body cleansing agents, Moringa Hibiscus Tea is a treat from the tip of your tongue to the tip of your toes. Plus, it is great for digestion and can quench your thirst when you need a refreshing and nutritious beverage without adding unnecessary calories.

Moringa Peppermint Tea: Relaxation and freshness are two words that should come to mind when you think of Peppermint Tea. That’s because peppermint helps release tension in blood vessels, like those that lead to headaches, and muscles, such as cramping in the intestines or uterus that cause indigestion, gas and menstrual cramps. The menthol ingredient in Peppermint Tea helps offer sinus relief and freshens breath. Peppermint is also a natural antimicrobial agent so it supports body cleansing, a stronger immune system and clearer skin.

Mix up your healthy tea habit with Zokiva’s new Moringa Blend Teas. With two new flavors to choose from, you’ll love the variety and diversity of nutrients that can spice up your life. Cheers!

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.

6 Tips for Cooking with Moringa Powder

It’s officially the holiday season and we are excited to welcome this special time of year in a healthy way. Winter holidays are notorious for unhealthy habits, especially indulging in many sugary and fatty foods. At Zokiva, we believe you can have a delicious holiday season while still making your health a priority. When it comes to baking, our Organic Moringa Powder is a terrific addition to many recipes to keep your holidays nutritiously scrumptious.

Moringa is one of nature’s most potent superfoods. With nearly 100 phyto-nutrients, Moringa is a powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other wholesome compounds with a variety of health benefits that help keep bodies healthy and thriving. In fact, between the potential introduction of germs and late nights of holiday gatherings, Moringa is the perfect superfood to be working for your body during this season.

Incorporating Moringa Powder into your holiday meals is very simple. Moringa Powder is a wonderful added ingredient to amplify the nutrients of almost any dish. It’s earthy and nutty flavor blends naturally with both sweet and savory foods you’re already serving this holiday season. Here are some tips and ideas for cooking with Moringa Powder:

Tip #1: The absolute easiest way of cooking with Moringa Powder is to sprinkle it on top of a dish before serving. Moringa is an herb after all so you can think of it like a garnish or flavor topping.  This works particularly well for savory dishes such as soups, stir fries or curries, or atop chicken, fish or tofu.

Tip #2: Similarly, you can user Moringa as a nutritious spice and mix Moringa Powder into warm savory dishes. In addition to the examples above, try it in casseroles, stews, and roasted vegetables.

Tip #3: When baking with Moringa, replace a portion of flour with an equivalent amount of Moringa. Just as you would the flour, mix Moringa Powder with dry ingredients. Consider sifting it to ensure it is not clumpy and spreads evenly in your baked good. Try Moringa Powder in breads, pancakes, cookies, cupcakes and muffins for a superfood green delight.

Tip #4: Drink Moringa Powder in fresh juices or smoothies. For breakfast or snacks this holiday season, take the extra time to squeeze fresh fruits into juices and then add two teaspoons of Moringa Powder to rev up the nutrients. These fruit/Moringa blends can give you lots of natural energy for the day.

Tip #5: Moringa Powder is a wonderful addition to dips too. If your family enjoys snacking on veggies or crackers with hummus, guacamole, baba ganoush or other dips, mix in a teaspoon of Moringa Powder as well. Everyone will get an extra dose of nature’s best nutrients without even realizing it.

Tip #6: Even if the weather is cool out, you can enjoy a refreshing fruit and Moringa popsicle as a treat.  Puree your favorite fruits along with Moringa Powder and then freeze them with popsicle sticks. After a few hours you’ll have a delicious frozen dessert that is super healthy. Plus, a green hued popsicle is fun for everyone to eat. 

We hope you have a magical holiday season filled with joy, love and health!

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!
