Can I take Moringa on an empty stomach?

Moringa Dosage and Ingestion

If you are wondering how often and when a Moringa capsule should be taken or how many grams of the powder per day is the correct dose, you will not find too much information. Quite simply, this is because Moringa products are a food, not a drug. The manufacturers may not specify specific dosages for certain complaints. This is regulated in the EU Health Claims Regulation and is intended, among other things, to prevent health promises from being made.


How much moringa is necessary?

However, if the content of ingredients is used for a rough calculation of the optimal amount and put in relation to the daily requirement of an adult, one comes to a daily amount between 10 and 20 grams of the powder. A knife point is enough for small children and school-age children can take half a teaspoon.

The active ingredient content of the capsules is usually adjusted so that one capsule can be taken before each meal. In addition, the food can be seasoned with a little powder. Larger amounts of Moringa Oleifera can also be taken without hesitation. If the stomach is not used to the raw food, gas, diarrhea and a feeling of fullness can occur in the beginning.

How often and when do you take Moringa?

It is best to take Moringa evenly throughout the day. It should be noted that due to the effects on the metabolism, taking it about 30 minutes before eating has an influence on the feeling of satiety. So if a diet is carried out with the aim of "losing weight", Moringa can certainly have a supportive effect.

Moringa should not be taken late in the evening or right before bed. It can have a stimulating and invigorating effect in some people and thus delay falling asleep by a few hours.

How long do you have to take Moringa?

The positive effects of Moringa Oleifera appear rather insidious when taken for a long time. So it is not as if you would feel the effect directly and feel reborn and full of energy. After one to two months, however, there are clearly noticeable effects. Often these are first noticed by people close to you who wonder why you are suddenly so active.

Moringa is usually not used as a cure but is regularly integrated into the daily diet. If you want to benefit from the wonder tree on a permanent basis, you must also take it permanently.

How do I use Moringa?

For many people, the stomach has to get used to the mustard oil glycosides in Moringa powder. You can roughly compare this process with ground grains in muesli in the morning or with switching to raw vegetables in general. The integration of Moringa into your own diet can be done in two ways, either you start with half a teaspoon (approx. 5 g) of powder a day or you choose tea for an easy start.

For example, a good start could look like this:

  1. Week: A cup of moringa tea in the morning
  2. Week: a cup of tea in the morning and a capsule before each meal
  3. Week: a cup of tea in the morning, a capsule before meals and the seasoning of dishes with powder
  4. Week: The tea can be replaced by a smoothie with more powder, or you can choose another Moringa recipe with the same dosage

Capsules should always be taken with a full glass of water, so you can be sure that they do not get stuck on the way to the stomach. If you have problems swallowing a whole capsule, you can use carbonated water, so the capsule is not felt.

In general, capsules are very suitable if you don't like the taste of the powder. But our sense of taste is also cultivated. So we have to eat food more often so that we can enjoy it as tasty. Over time, one or the other even starts to stir the powder into a glass of water and thinks it's very tasty.

Since Moringa is lipophilic (fat-loving), it mixes with the water, but does not completely dissolve. Milk, muesli, yogurt, smoothies, butter, pesto or a delicious curry are more suitable for consumption.

It should be noted that while cooking reduces the nutrient content, it also increases the bioavailability of some polyphenols. As a consequence, part of the daily dose should be taken directly cold and another part in a warm dish.

When should Moringa not be taken?

Products made from the leaves of Moringa Oleifera can always be taken.
