Spring is just around the corner now! If you haven't already, start preparing to take some nature walks around your neighborhood when the weather breaks to see the new, budding blooms! Nature walking is also a great root chakra practice as well (click here to check out more grounding practices you can do!) that soothes your mind and breathes new life into you.
Our featured herb of the month will also remind you of Spring due to its vibrant green color and nutrient dense properties!
Moringa is a nutrient dense herb that can help naturally boost energy. It also contains a concentrated amount of iron and B-vitamins and is a great source of calcium & vitamin K. For those suffering from anemia, it can possibly help to boost iron levels due to its high iron content, as well as improve digestion, which helps nutrients to absorb properly. It helps to balance the blood sugar, which could also help to curve diabetes. With its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its ability to boost the immune and skeletal system, this herb is considered to be a very potent superfood!
Moringa is also a great aid to nursing mamas, as it helps to naturally boost milk supply. In some studies, it has also been proven to help balance hormones, which is great news for women in general! Moringa can also potentially improve skin conditions due to its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties that also help to protect and nourish the skin from the inside out. How's that for a new natural beauty routine?
If you are looking to transition your diet, or add something more nutritious to it, this herb is a great way to do that in a more plant-based way!
