How to Drink Powdered Moringa for Depression


Moringa is a nutrient-rich food that is produced from the leaves of the moringa oleifera tree. This natural food supplement is green in color and has a pungent, nutty smell. Moringa is considered a super-food because it contains almost 92 nutrients. The vitamin content of this food can help to treat depression that is caused by a nutrient deficiency. A vitamin imbalance can lead to hormonal imbalances and sleep pattern disturbances that cause or increase depression in some cases. Moringa contains high amounts of the vitamins A, B, C, and E and the minerals potassium, iron and calcium and a number of antioxidants. Depression has a number of causes, symptoms and treatments; consult your doctor before self-treating.

Step 1
Consult your family doctor or psychiatrist about your illness. Depression varies in its severity and range of symptoms, and treatment also varies among individuals. Your doctor can determine whether a nutritional deficiency or imbalance may be causing or worsening your depression symptoms. Do not self-treat depression without the guidance of your doctor.

Step 2
Purchase Moringa powder supplement from a health food store. A nutritionist or herbalist can recommend a reputable brand of Moringa. Carefully read the label to ensure that you are not allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients in this product.

Step 3
Take the recommended dosage of two to three spoonfuls of Moringa powder per day. Stir the food supplement into a glass of cold or lukewarm water until it is dissolved. Drink the Moringa supplement once a day or throughout the day. Alternatively, add two to threee spoonfuls of Moringa powder to juice or fruit and vegetable smoothies as a densely rich nutritional supplement. Continue the Moringa supplement for the duration recommended on the product.

Warnings
Depression is a potentially serious and debilitating illness that affects individuals in varying ways. This illness also has a broad range of causes. Depression requires medical diagnosis and treatment. It is important to avoid self-treating this condition. Talk to your doctor or psychiatrist about the best treatment plan for you. Moringa powder may be suitable to enhance existing depression treatment as recommended by a medical professional.

Tips
A dosage of Moringa powder is a natural food supplement that contains high levels of nutrients. Moringa is a natural food source, and hence the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it contains are better absorbed by the body than a multivitamin.
A deficiency of nutrients such as vitamin B-12 and other B vitamins may be linked to depression. These vitamins play key roles in the production of neurotransmitters, or chemical messengers, that affect mood, and in the metabolism of food to generate energy. However, Moringa and other vitamin supplements are not approved for the treatment of depression by the Food and Drug Administration.
