We know that Moringa is an immune booster because we have the research to prove it, but nothing beats hearing from living, breathing, grateful human beings! Take for example this testimonial we received this week:
“After suffering from chronic bouts of pneumonia, the symptoms kept lingering. I thought I would never know what it felt like to be healthy again. A friend recommended Moringa and after only 2 weeks my chronic symptoms have significantly improved. Thank you Moringa for everything!”

Elizabeth's story is a reminder: immunity is about more than just avoiding illness - it’s also about recovery time. When you get sick, how quickly do you recover? Does your cold linger for more than a week? When you get an infection, do you always need antibiotics?
Nutrition’s role in building immunity should not be underestimated. According to the Linus Pauling Institute:
“The ability of the immune system to prevent infection and disease is strongly influenced by nutritional status of the host. In fact, malnutrition is the most common cause of immunodeficiency in the world.”
When you hear the world ‘malnutrition’, you probably think of people who don’t get enough to eat. But malnutrition simply means poor nutrition. We now know that North Americans are experiencing nutrient-poverty. We have enough calories, but most of what we eat delivers few of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients we need to thrive.
What nutrients are essential for immunity?
Moringa is also incredibly rich in chlorophyll, a plant pigment that should be one of your key allies in fighting infection and healing. Moringa is so dense in this immune-boosting nutrient, it has 3x the chlorophyll of wheatgrass!
Through our Organics 4 Orphans work in Africa, we witness the difference nutrition can make in immunity, first hand. We coach people as they go from eating a diet of refined starches to eating raw, green, leafy foods and natural medicines like Moringa. They get sick far less often. Adults in the prime of their lives who formerly contracted malaria several times a year become malaria-free! That’s how powerful nutrition is.
Try Moringa during this cold and flu season, and let us know how your immunity fares.
