How Moringa Powder can help you sleep
Do you sleep poorly and do you feel the effects of this on a daily basis (fatigue, irritation, drowsiness, attention problems, migraines, etc.)? Then you are probably insomniac. Whether transient or chronic, insomnia is the result of various factors (cumulative or not) environmental, physical and mental. In the last two cases, a daily intake of moringa leaf powder can help restore restful sleep.
Why is it so important to sleep well? Good sleep is essential for mood as well as physical health. It allows the body to recharge its batteries and fill up with energy. During sleep, several physiological processes are triggered, such as memory consolidation, detoxification (evacuation of waste) and cell regeneration, strengthening of the immune system … Lack of sleep therefore considerably hinders the proper functioning of the organism, weakens its defenses and accelerates its aging.
Insomnia manifests itself by a difficulty to fall asleep, intermittent or premature awakenings, and chronic fatigue… The causes of this phenomenon are multiple. Some external stimuli such as light or noise, a deplorable lifestyle (drug use, smoking, etc.), a change in rhythm or irregular schedules, an unbalanced diet (menu, frequency and meal times), chronic pain (cancer, arthritis, etc.), depression, degenerative diseases (Parkinson, Alzheimer), breathing disorders and sleep apnea are among the most common sleep disrupters.
To recover a good sleep, it is therefore necessary, firstly, to create the right conditions by opting for a healthier lifestyle and for balanced meals at fixed times, by limiting the ambient stimuli, by stopping the consumption of exciting substances (tea, coffee, tobacco) and alcohol in the hours before bedtime…
Sleeping well thanks to moringa
Once this prerequisite has been established, the daily intake of moringa powder (5 g per day per adult is the recommended dose) is a second step. This plant, the richest in nutrients of all the vegetable kingdom, provides to the body and the brain all the ammunition necessary to prevent and fight insomnia.
Let’s especially retain tryptophan, the amino acid which is the metabolic precursor of serotonin (happiness hormone), which itself plays a role in the production of melatonin (sleep hormone) and dopamine (hormone of pleasure). Moringa is a mood stabilizer that is particularly effective against worriness, anxiety, hyperactivity or depression.
Highly dosed with antioxidants, moringa also neutralizes the oxidative stress generated by free radicals, the agents responsible for premature aging of cells. Scientific studies having established a link between sleep deprivation and oxidative stress, moringa appears as a good natural way to slow down (or even stop) the onset or progression of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia that are linked to the lack of sleep.
Another benefit of moringa for a restful sleep: the plant is known to be an active muscle relaxant (athletes know something about it), always thanks to its high content of amino acids and proteins. Which explains the decrease of certain types of chronic pain (rheumatism). It also relieves headache and relaxes blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure, which improves the quality of sleep as well.
