But before we get to this delicious moringa tea leaf recipe, let’s look at possible moringa benefits as well as moringa tea side effects.

What Is Moringa Tea?

The many benefits of moringa tea are are impressive to say the least. This is a superfood that is gaining in popularity for good reason!

Moringa is known to be used medicinally for a number of health concerns, including anemia, asthma, digestive troubles, headaches and joint pain. It’s also used as a remedy for swelling and a variety of infections, including bacterial, fungal and viral types.

Moringa tea comes from the Moringa oleifera tree, also known as the “horseradish tree” or “drumstick tree.” It’s a small deciduous tree with clusters of white flowers, and it is native to tropical Asia.

It takes roughly seven pounds of moringa leaves to make just one pound of dried powder.

Moringa tea is naturally low in calories and has zero sugar content. In terms of vitamins and minerals, it’s exceptionally high in vitamin A.

It also contains notable amounts of other really key nutrients like iron and calcium.

The most nutrient-dense versions of moringa leaf tea or moringa powder are organic and have been dried slowly under low temperatures. (This helps maintain delicate beneficial compounds.) This recipe is for a moringa tea latte, but you can also purchase moringa tea bags and simply add hot water to create a quick Moringa oleifera tea.

What Are the Side Effects of Taking Moringa?

Can I drink moringa tea every day? What are the side effects of taking moringa tea?

Since moringa is a newer “superfood,” people have questions like these about moringa — and they are good ones!

It’s best to start off with a half teaspoon to one teaspoon of moringa per day to avoid unwanted side effects.

Moringa can have laxative effects and cause an upset stomach in high doses or when used too frequently, which is why most consumers choose to include it in their diets every several days rather than every single day to avoid these possible moringa side effects.

    Thank you Dr. Axe for always reassuring the true facts regarding best herbs & natural remedies! I always check with you prior to trying something new!

    I grow many of these trees in front yard. Amazing anti inflammatory and flowers higher and recipe for moringa flower fritters.

  3. Paul D. on

    Is the 1½ tablespoons moringa powder in the recipe the correct amount? In the paragraph on side effects it says, “This recipe contains about three quarters of a teaspoon per serving…”
    1½ tablespoons would equate to 2 1/4 teaspoons per serving.

  4. Kimberly Fletcher on

    I was trying to lose weight and Aldo get my Metabolism hormones right does Maringa tea help and how can I go by getting this in capsule form and which is the name of them

  5. Michele on

    That’s more than half the amount of carbs I consume in a day! I will skip the maple syrup (maple extract could be used for flavoring) and sweeten with a little stevia or monk fruit and I will use heavy whipping cream instead of cashew milk (not a fan of nut milks). This could be a great change from my bulletproof coffee and has so many health benefits!

  6. Bonnie Reardon on

    Can you drink it later in the day? Also can you swap stevia for the maple syrup and can you add vanilla?

  7. Lynette on

    I just made this recipe with homemade cashew milk and also added a touch of pure vanilla extract, and it was divine! I couldn’t believe how creamy it was. I will definitely be making this again. I LOVE Moringa and it’s truly a superfood secret.

  8. Karen on

    Moringa also contains several up to 14 different amino acids. Essential for healing after a workout and such. When I first purchased Moringa powder several years ago the aminos were listed on the packaging but have since been removed probably because it couldn’t be verified by the FDA. I’m not a big fan of the FDA anyway but if you google it you can get more info there.

  9. Vanessa on

    I started taking Moringa after I finished medical treatments. It helped me regain my strenght and energy level. I currently use B’Leaf Nature Moringa from Amazon.

  10. Pam on

    I have heard that Moringa capsules (4daily) help with arthritis and inflammation. Is this true?
    If so, which brand do you recommend?
    Thank you

    • Maricel Orpilla on

      I always take 4-6 capsules daily. This is also good for fast metabolism (swear) base on my experience.My sister made capsules for our family and she’s also selling to her officemates.
