Most iron-rich nutritional sources are animalistic, such as meat and liver. Usually the content and bioavailability of iron from plant sources is lower. For this reason Vegans and Vegetarians are at particular risk of anemia.
Studies have shown that Moringa leaf powder has an exceptionally high iron content. 100g (3.5oz) of beef liver contains about 10 mg iron, pork liver about 10-20 mg. Moringa leaf powder contains an astonishing 28 mg of iron per 100g! This high iron content is even higher than the iron content of any animalistic source. This is very unusual for plants.
At africrops! the quality of our Moringa products is regularly monitored in accredited laboratories. These studies found out that powder from africrops!’ African sources have an iron content of 43 mg per 100g. This is even 50% higher than usual Moringa leaf powder! This came as a very pleasant surprise.
It is known that the bioavailability of iron is increased in the presence of Vitamin C, Vitamin A and carotenoids, as well as reducing (antioxidizing) agents. Moringa leaves contain all of these compounds in high quantities.
Several pregnant women in Africa suffering from Anemia were given Moringa and very quickly recovered from their symptoms. These observations can now also be made in the Northern hemisphere: africrops! has repeatedly received the feedback, in particular from women, that blood values have improved dramatically after taking africrops! Moringa leaf powder!
