Saddle up! It’s show time for Round Eight at the Battle of the Greens: Moringa vs Wheatgrass
The time has finally come to pitch moringa against that legendary foe, wheatgrass. For years, wheatgrass has been the poster child of high-energy healthy, active lifestyles. If you had super-health crazed parents, maybe they even forced you to down wheatgrass shots as a kid! While wheatgrass has long enjoyed its reputation as being one of the healthiest foods out there, moringa has already proven itself to be more nutrient dense than a host of superfood combatants like kale, spinach, and spirulina. With such an impressive record, it seems like there may be a new nutritional champion about to take the super-green throne.
Let’s take a look at the nutritional content of 10g of Kuli Kuli’s moringa powder vs. 10g of a leading wheatgrass powder.
The Results are In – Looking good for Moringa!
We knew going in that this was going to be a hard fought battle, but based on moringa’s spotless record so far, it’s no surprise that it’s come out on top once again. Moringa beats out wheatgrass in key categories like iron, fiber, calcium, and vitamin K. It also holds its own as a complete plan protein with all nine essential amino acids. Furthermore, the fact that one 10g serving of moringa powder will give you half of your daily recommended iron should be enough to get your attention!
Wheatgrass predictably takes home wins in the vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium categories, but this isn’t enough for it to hold an edge over moringa. This is because moringa is often consumed as part of a smoothie or nutritious meal that can provide more than enough of these particular nutrients. For example, you can enjoy the delicious benefits of moringa in our #moringainspired Blackberry Pineapple Moringa Smoothie or Moringa Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie. The fruit in these superfood smoothies combined with the power of moringa will surely have you feeling nourished, strong, and ready to take on whatever life throws at you.
As we have stated numerous times throughout our blog, the nutritional benefits of moringa truly do make it something of a miracle tree. From it’s status as an anti-inflammatory, to a complete plant protein, to a natural way to reduce blood pressure, you really can’t go wrong. Try some moringa today and let us know how much your health improves.
