Moringa powder is obtained from the dried leaves of the Moringa Oleifera plant. The plant has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy due to its various medical benefits. Here are some of the potential benefits of using moringa powder for men.
It helps reduce erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is a condition characterized by the inability to get an erection that is rigid enough for penetration. It may be brought about by several factors such as lack of free blood flow which may result from hypertension or diabetes. Moringa leaves contain polyphenols which are micronutrients that are packed with antioxidants. Polyphenols may enhance blood circulation by enhancing the production of nitric oxide and reducing blood pressure. Studies have shown that moringa leaf extract can inhibit the activity of key enzymes associated with erectile dysfunction that increase blood pressure and reduce nitric oxide production. The extract has also been shown to improve penile blood circulation in healthy men as well as those with diabetes.
It boosts energy
One of the many benefits of moringa is its ability to provide a natural boost in energy, just like an energy drink. However, moringa does not contain any caffeine. Its energy boosting effect is attributed to the following nutrients and vitamins:
The vitamin in moringa powder acts as an antioxidant and helps with iron absorption. It plays a major role in carnitine biosynthesis and conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine. Carnitine is essential in energy production at the cellular level.
Vitamin B contains nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide(NADH), a cofactor central to metabolism. Apart from energy production, NADH helps improve brain, heart and muscle function. It also has cognitive benefits as well as components that help improve senses and concentration.
Calcium is primarily known for its vital role in bone building. However, sufficient flow of calcium in and out body cells is vital for optimum cellular function. Studies have shown that a steady flow of calcium and various nutrients such as vitamin B are essential for proper energy production.
A deficiency in potassium may be characterized by weakness and fatigue. This is because potassium helps regulate muscle contractions thus when blood potassium levels are low, muscles in the body generate weaker contractions. A deficiency in this mineral may also affect how the body utilizes nutrients resulting in fatigue.
Amino acids are responsible for a variety of roles in the body. They play essential roles in important processes such as immune function, absorption of nutrients and the production of energy.
Moringa powder also contains flavonoids such as quercetin which has been shown to stabilize the production of histamines and chlorogenic acid, which regulates blood glucose levels.
Moringa powder is a perfect alternative for coffee and energy drinks. It is also a great option for people who are sensitive to caffeine. Moringa tea for instance can provide a boost in energy without any of the risks or side effects associated with caffeine such as insomnia, jitteriness and anxiety.
