HOW TO BE A MORINGA PERSON

FOOD NEWS

You’re exhausted, got a to-do list longer than your arm and a cup of coffee just won’t cut it. Sound familiar? Then say hello to adaptogens. These are herbs and plants that can help our bodies adapt to stress in our environment and rebalance hormones. With the power to ease anxiety, aid sleep and raise energy levels, these plant-based remedies are getting a lot of buzz right now. Some, such as turmeric, you may have in your cupboard already, others like maca, ashwagandha and Asian ginseng may be new to you. But one in particular is set to be a major food trend this year, thanks to its superfood properties. Moringa is touted as the world’s ‘most useful tree’ by scientists – the leaves contain more vitamin A than carrots, calcium than milk, iron than spinach and vitamin C than oranges, as well as more protein than eggs. Its inflammation-fighting prowess rivals turmeric, and it tastes good, too. Tempted? Stir Minvita Moringa Superfood Powder (£15.99 for 250g) into smoothies, yoghurts or hot water, or grab an Aduna Moringa Green Superleaf Energy Bar (£1.89 for 45g). Both from hollandandbarrett.com.
