Moringa and Spirulina are commonly known as being two effective natural health supplements. But did you know that moringa and spirulina can also be used in the form of herbal medicine? The moringa tree and the blue-green algae spirulina both contain an abundance of minerals and vitamins making them quite the compatible pair. Using either of these supplements in the form of herbal medicine is commonly done to help transition into a healthier lifestyle.
Before we get into some of the more amazing benefits of using these two together lets discuss a few of their benefits.
Spirulina can be used in a variety of ways. Some of the most common forms of consuming spirulina is either taking it in the form of capsules, tablets, foods, or drink supplements. However, spirulina has the potential to be combined with other herbs that have similar therapeutic profiles. This sea algae contains a dense profile of antioxidants, proteins, amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, and a high concentration of functional nutrients. Spirulina is also known to be excellent for sugar cravers and overeaters. The pancreas is directly linked to insulin, diabetes, and our body’s blood glucose balance. A study done in 2001 goes into even more depth about the role that Spirulina plays with blood glucose levels. As mentioned in the study, spirulina showed a significant improvement in long term glucose levels.
Moringa is known to be one of nature’s most nutritious foods. Unlike spirulina, which is known to be a sea algae, moringa is actually known to be a tree. The moringa tree leaves are known to be an excellent source of many minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. Moringa is also known to contain amazing health benefits and wellness properties. This leaf is known to contain 7 times more vitamin C than oranges and 10 times more potassium than bananas. Moringas impressive profile is known to contain magnesium, iron, calcium, and many other beneficial nutrients. A study of Moringa done in 2017 indicates that the leaves of this tree have been widely studied and has been shown to be beneficial in several chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, insulin resistance, inflammation and more.

Now let’s get to the fun part! Although Spirulina is an algae and Moringa a tree, the two in combination are known to complement each other very well. A study done in 2017 indicates that the two have complementary natural food ingredients. Now when making herbal medicine, I always make sure to purchase my herbs or algae’s from a reputable source.
