Okay, well-being foods are becoming popular in Italy. More: it seems that the so-called superfoods have redefined food purchasing preferences.
But ginger and spirulina algae, flaxseed and avocado, almonds and rice oil, oats and coconut weren't enough? At the beginning of 2018, there was a need for a new miraculous food, inevitably in first place in the Google searches of every VIP, and already considered by Time the "next quinoa".
Memorize this word: moringa.
This is a miracle plant, as always when it comes to superfoods, grown in a large part of India, Southeast Asia and East Africa. Entirely edible, from root to leaf, including bark, it is often found in powder form, similar in appearance to matcha tea (?!).
There seems to be no escape, so don't resist and dip the moringa into your prodigious smoothie or centrifuged as soon as possible. Soon, juices, bars and other snacks made with the fairy plant will also arrive on the Italian shelves.
But it is also found in capsules, as if it really had to do something. Well, what are the benefits of moringa?
It fights bad cholesterol and lowers blood sugar, to begin with, it also affects weight loss. It would also be a powerful anti-inflammatory, an ally of the immune system; how to forget the concentration of amino acids and the presence of vitamins A and C, as well as iron, calcium and antioxidants.
The result is good anti-aging properties, like a novel elixir of long life. After all, it is said to contain seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the vitamin A of carrots, 25 times the iron of spinach.
But be skeptical at the right point. The Guardian already reports the first perplexities, with the support of an authoritative scientific journal. Moringa is criticized for its low levels of bio-availability, ie the percentage of a nutrient actually assimilated.
To give an example, even if the plant contained 25 times the iron of lentils, as is being told, it does not necessarily prove to be prodigious against anemia.
