Moringa is considered a complete plant protein that contain all 18 amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (that your body can’t produce) to form all the proteins your body needs which is crucial for muscle building especially if you are a vegan athlete, trainer or yoga practitioner. Almost 30% of the Moringa leaf is made up various forms of protein that are essential building blocks for your muscles.
2. Anti-inflammatory properties
Inflammation one of the main causes of pain and soreness after a workout. Moringa has powerful anti-inflammatory properties owing to its high concentration of isocyanates, biophenols and essential amino acids that reduce inflammation and assist in muscle recovery after an intense workout at the gym or a rigorous game.
3. Antioxidant properties
Intense exercise can cause a high amount of oxidative stress. Antioxidants affect athletic performance, agility and flexibility as they reduce exercise-induced oxidative damage and help the body recover faster. Moringa is a powerful natural antioxidant supplement and contains an abundance of free-radical fighting agents like quercetin and chlorogenic acid which help reduce cell damage and fight muscle exhaustion.
4. Anti-fatigue properties
Studies conducted on swimming performance have shown that Moringa extracts improve blood haemoglobin and glycogen reserves during physical activity and reduce triglycerides, urea and lactic acid. This demonstrates that it has potent anti-fatigue properties that boost the body’s energy reserves and reduce tissue build-up during vigorous physical exertion.
5. Electrolyte replenishment
Moringa leaves have a high concentration of electrolyte minerals such as potassium that allow the body to stay internally hydrated even during rigorous athletic activity.
6. Vitamin B
The body cannot generate energy without vitamin B which is responsible for glycolysis and energy production. Moringa leaves contain a high amount of this crucial vitamin that is essential for your overall performance as an athlete.
When competing, athletes need to stay physically and mentally alert. This is where the importance of iron comes into play. Moringa is a rich source of iron that boosts mental and physical acuity by efficiently transporting blood to the brain and other parts of the body.
Moringa contains high levels of magnesium which assists in energy production from glucose that ultimately fuels your workout and helps you perform better. In addition, magnesium plays a vital role in maintaining your nerve, muscle and cardiac functions as well as preventing muscle. Magnesium also helps your body gain lean muscle mass.
9. Boosts Immunity
Moringa leaves are loaded with strong immune boosting phytonutrients that strengthens the immune system and enables it to fight off infections. Together, they contain vitamin A, C and iron that support a healthy and active immune system.
Moringa has more calcium than milk and yogurt, which we all know is important for bone health which is critical for athletes. But more importantly, calcium is also essential for endurance athletes who take part in running, cycling and triathlons as it helps the heart muscles contract and supply blood to the brain and other parts of the body efficiently and effectively.
