How to make your own Moringa Aqueous Extract (Tea)

Join Dr. Van Dyken as she discusses how to make a robust aqueous extract of moringa, affectionately often called “Moringa Tea.”

Previous video: “Health benefits of Moringa.”


In the final video, we reviewed the well being advantages of Moringa. Moringa actually is an unbelievable plant, and worthwhile incorporating into your food regimen. Many folks have no idea the easiest way to eat Moringa and are searching for ideas on how to put together it. Obviously, moringa has been consumed for hundreds of years, in many alternative methods. It is utilized in cooking in addition to potions and tinctures. As we reviewed within the final video, the lively ingredient of moringa is a compound known as moringin – and it’s transformed from one thing known as glucomoringin by an enzyme known as myrosinase. All of this can be a particular course of and – to be sincere – it may be tousled in case you are not cautious. So…How do you assure the moringa you have got ready has sufficient moringin? And how are you aware it’s lively and usable by our our bodies? How are you aware you didn’t kill off all of the myrosinase (which is a warmth delicate enzyme by the best way)..

So, myrosinase is a warmth delicate enzyme, that means, that should you warmth your moringa up it is going to kill off the myrosinase and – you get no moringin. Lucky for us although, we’ve enzymes in our intestine microbiome that additionally convert glucomoringin to moringin – so…you’re not out of luck utterly, however you undoubtedly are usually not getting as a lot moringin as you’d should you didn’t warmth the moringin up in any respect. Don’t let that cease you from placing moringa leaves in your cooked meals like curry and stir fries – simply don’t rely on that supplying you with all of the moringin you want. I might advise a backup methodology.

Thanks to Jed Fahey PhD, who’s a scientist at Johns Hopkins Cullman chemoprevention heart that researches sulforaphane and moringa, we’ve a protocol to create a robust aqueous extract of moringa, affectionately often called moringa Tea. I do know, I do know it sounds fancy, but it surely actually isn’t. Pretty a lot anyone can throw this aqueous extract collectively. The superb too, is there may be analysis performed on this precise “recipe” – Done by Dr. Fahey and colleagues in fact, however we all know that we are able to get a fairly dependable dose of moringin utilizing this methodology.

So, concerning the moringa powder. It’s just about dried and crushed moringa leaves. You can both make your own from moringa timber that develop shut to you – or you should buy the powder on-line or at your native healthfood retailer. We don’t normally promote manufacturers on this channel, and we by no means take sponsorships, however make certain your model or supply of moringa is dependable.You need to make certain the powder is pure and processing strategies are sound. We like this KuliKuli model that’s simply obtainable on-line.

You will want:
A jar or one thing you possibly can shake with out spilling
Filtered room temperature water -and-
Moringa powder.
That’s it.

So, you mainly put filtered water into your jar, then the right proportion of moringa powder. Ratios are as follows:
Its a one to 100 ratio of moringa powder to water. So 1 teaspoon of moringa powder in a single cup of water. For our metric buddies – 1 gram of moringa powder to 100cc of water – or 5 grams of moringa powder to 8 ounces of water.

After every thing is within the jar, I like to shake it a bit simply to make certain the blending was profitable. You need to let the tea “steep” for at the very least 10 minutes, to enable the aqueous extract to extract the glucomoringing from the leaves into the water. If you have got half-hour, that’s even higher as evidenced by this graph from Dr. Fahey’s examine. More steeping time = extra moringin, up till half-hour, you then’ve just about gotten all of it.

After that, all you have got to do is drink the tea. You don’t have to drink the sediment on the backside, but it surely would not damage should you do – you’ll get some additional fiber, protein and phytochemicals from it for certain!

One of the nice issues about this extract, is that it retains for at the very least 48 hours at room temperature, or within the fridge. So, you could possibly theoretically make up a big batch of “tea” which might final you 2-3 days.

You could also be questioning what these items tastes like. It’s truly fairly tolerable – dare I say gentle tasting? The cool factor too is, should you discover the style to be itchy – you should use juice as a substitute of water. This masks the flavour a bit and does NOT lower the efficacy. As a matter of reality, in one of many research that Dr. Fahey did in China, he used pineapple juice blended with the dried moringa powder to masks the style. He had to give each the moringa and the placebo, and he was ready to do that utilizing pineapple juice. He says he tried all different kinds of juices, even mango, however the pineapple labored greatest.

  1. I think it would be a mistake for you to assume Americans understand that 28.35 grams = 1 ounce & 455 grams = 1 lb. PS No, Moringa tea doesn't sound fancy. All that other stuff like the peer reviewed paper and the chemistry, now that was fancy. LOL

  2. I make my green tea with local honey put it in the refrigerator next morning before filling my cooler for work I put the powder and with the ice and off to work agoThe taste is very good that way

  3. Your 1:100 ratio of Moringa to water chart doesn’t make sense. 8 ounces of water is 227cc. Why don’t you just say 5ml of Moringa to 250ml water “for your metric friends”

  4. Please, what exactly MORINGIN in moringa does to our body?
    I tried to search but can't get clear explanation.
    Please!!! who knows more than GOOGLE??? 💞🧚‍♀️

  5. I have 2 Moringa trees in my garden.
    I would like to know a recipe for fresh leaves of moringa.
    All the videos speak about powder. I want to know how to prepare it from fresh leaves that I pick from the trees in my garden

  6. Nice. Do you happen to know if there's any heat sensitive compound in chanca piedra as well? to be honest it's the first time I've heard about this even though I do read NCBI studies regularly and they forgot to mention that part about heat. Thanks for that! Something unrelated, do you know if there's proof that the alkaloids in cineraria maritima could cause harm to the eye when applied as eye drop? I've been trying to decide whether I should use that for my dry eye condition.

  7. Moringa is ubiquitous here in the Philippines and we use it often. I also make a tea each morning with turmeric, ginger, cacao,, moringa, lemon, and honey. A little bit of a lot of good stuff!

  8. Love my moringa and beets "pseudo-smoothies." Made this very way. I ALWAYS make certain to "down the dregs", as well! Talk about an energy boost! One of the best things I still practice regularly.

  9. Hi Dr. Van Dyken. I like very much your sincerity, passion and the way of your presentation. I particularly appreciate your usage of combination of science-based & practical, easy to understand approach. Anyhow, my question is as follows: How about adding some (i.e. 1/2 teaspoonful) carbonate to the moringa tea. What I mean is that since the carbonate of soda will make the water more alkaline, hence more nutrients will be ripped out of moringa.
