It’s Moringa: My review and you can save $25 on Vegan Cuts

by JL Fields on December 8, 2012

I am proud to be a part of the Vegan Cuts blogger review program; Vegan Cuts is the leader in weekly vegan deals and is home to a fabulous online vegan market.  A few months ago I reviewed MuLondon moisturizer (loved it) and today I am delighted to review the latest Vegan Cuts deal: the It’s Moringa Sampler, including Moringa Green Superfood Powder, tea bags, loose leaf tea, and veggie capsules.

What exactly is Moringa? Moringa Oleifera, referred to as a miracle tree, is also known as “mother’s best friend” in East Africa and the “most nutritious leafy green on dry land“:

Cited health benefits include

  • Increases and sustains energy naturally
  • Gives a feeling of general wellness
  • Nourishes that body’s immune system
  • Promotes healthy circulatory system
  • Increases the natural defenses of the body
  • Heightens mental clarity
  • Provides nourishment to the eyes and the brain
  • Promotes metabolism with bio-available ingredients
  • Promotes natural serum cholesterol
  • Known to enhance weight loss
  • Promotes healthy digestion
  • Acts as an antioxidant
  • High alkalinity helps balance your body’s pH level
  • Has natural anti-aging benefits
  • Anti-inflammatory support
  • Supports the normal sugar levels of the body

I received the sample package from It’s Moringa just a few days before I moved west to Colorado so I packed it up with all of my other food items. The movers arrived this week and I was so excited when I got to the box with the green superfood powder, supplements and teas.

I use the tea bags immediately.

This was mid-afternoon and I had been unpacking for hours.  The tea flavor is delicious – lighter than a black tea and stronger than a green tea – and I felt refreshed.

The next morning I finally found my blender and immediately made smoothies for my husband and I.

2 cups almond milk, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 2 tablespoons Moringa Green Superfood Powder, and 1 tablespoon flax seed.

This was a fantastic smoothie!  I have always wanted to be a green powder fan but find the taste, too, err…earthy?  This smoothie has a tea flavor, nice and smooth, and my husband liked it as much as I did.  I usually drink smoothies as a snack, not a meal, but found that I was satiated for hours.

Moringa Green Superfood Powder nutrition facts, from the It’s Moringa website:

Our process captures all the amazing nutrients and health benefits this great leafy green has to offer. It’s Moringa dried moringa leaf powder rich in protein (contains all essential amino acids) plus antioxidants as well as highly concentrated with calcium, chlorophyll, iron, Vitamin K, fiber, vitamin B-12, vitamin B-6 and trace minerals.

There are two items in the sampler I have yet to try. The loose leaf tea, which can be brewed or used in soups, stews, dips and sauce mixes, bakery mixes, and with canned foods, and the veggie capsules which is an alternative way to consume the green leaf nutrients.

It’s Moringa is soy-free, gluten-free and kosher.

You can get the sampler pack – valued at $55  – for only $30 on Vegan Cuts.  If you order today it will be delivered by December 24!
