I am so excited, I have decided to start adding three magical powders to our diet on a daily basis.
As we follow a vegan diet, it always worries me that we are not getting the right supplements. After an enormous amount of research I have decided to include Arbonne’s Digestion Plus, Ausha’s Moringa Powder and Yogi Organic’s Amla Powder to our daily shake.
I already use Arbonne’s Digestion Plus daily as it was a large part of my diet when I followed Arbonne’s “30 Days To Healthy Living” program. It was that program, together with going plant based, that started John and my fantastic weight loss and John’s diabetes reversal. After completing the 30 days we have changed our diet for life and intend to live healthier, happier and longer lives.
Read about John’s journey.
I’m not one for soppy posts but I had to say that I am so happy at the moment. John is continually losing weight on his plant based, (most of the time and when I’m not looking), eating regime. So we are both pleased with that but he has just been told by his doctor that he is no longer diabetic….no longer diabetic! Can you believe that? Losing weight and reversed his diabetes, yeh, fan bloody tastic! Thank you Annamaria for encouraging us to do this and thank you John for coping with life without meat, I’m so proud of you. Onwards and upwards.
Back to my research on my magic powders.
So what is Moringa Powder?
Ausha’s Moringa Powder comes from the leaves of the Moringa tree. They are 100% Organic. Moringa Powder is certified by the Soil Association & Vegan Society. It is 100% Pure & Natural, 100% Organic, Non-GMO, No Gluten.
So what are the benefits?:
Moringa Powder is a super food, it is a fantastic source of minerals. There’s Calcium, Iron, Potassium and Magnesium.
Also regular use of Moringa powder may help in balancing the blood sugar levels in the body. Which is perfect for John.
Moringa Leaf Powder is rich in nutrients and antioxidants which helps in boosting the overall immune system of the body. It helps in improving immunity and reducing fatigue.
You can use Moringa powder in juices, smoothies, yogurts or just dissolve in a little hot water. I am going to add a 1/2 a tablespoonful a day each in our protein shakes. So if you normally make enough for two people then add a whole tablespoonful.
Ausha Moringa Powder is even packed in a 100% recyclable resealable pouch at source to retain the freshness of the product.
I bought mine from Amazon, here is a link to the product. Ausha Organic Moringa Powder
So what is Amla Powder?:
Amla is known as the Indian Gooseberry.
What are it’s benefits?:
Amla contains a massive amount of Vitamin C, it has the most Vitamin C in the whole of the plant World, 20 times that of an orange can you believe.
Being a very rich source of Vitamin C, iron and calcium, Amla is a health treasure.
“Amla is a very special fruit full of antioxidants that are effective in reducing the cell damage which reduces the free radicals that can cause disease in the body”, says Dr. Komal Bhadouria, Nutritionist, SCI International Hospital, New Delhi.
Amla powder is great for boosting your immunity but it also has other wonderful benefits for your hair, skin and overall health.
Hear what these doctors and nutritionists have to say.
According to Dr. Shalini Minglani, a Bangalore-based nutritionist, Amla powder is the purest form of Vitamin C and it enriches you from within by making the blood vessels stronger and thicker. It also improves your immunity so that you can fight infections easily.
Amla reduces the risk of heart disease by regulating the build-up of bad cholesterol, suggests Dr. Komal Bhadouria.
Amla is rich in antioxidants these help in fighting free radicals in the body. This reduces cell damage and also the risk of cancer and inflammation.
Like the English gooseberry, Amla powder has a high fibre content which works wonderfully for the digestive system. It’s an effective cure for constipation. The dried powder of the Amla fruit is said to be a great home remedy for hyperacidity and stomach ulcers.
It is also said that Amla is a great food for anti-aging. Consuming Amla in any form on a daily basis is the secret behind a slow aging process and beautiful skin.
Amla powder is good for diabetics. Amla contains chromium which makes the body more responsive to insulin and regulates the blood glucose levels. Again good for John.
I am going to add 1/2 teaspoon each to our daily shakes.
My Organic Amla Powder is from “Yogi Organics” I bought mine from Amazon, here is a link to the product. Organic Amla Berry Powder
A lot of the information here about Amla was from a fabulous website called www.NDTV.com
Arbonne’s Fibre Support
What is it?:
It is a flavourless powder that can be mixed with any food, I will be adding 1/2 scoop each, (scoop comes in the pack), to our shakes.
It contains pea powder, apple pectin, inulin, orange fibre, sugar beet fibre and citrus pectin.
What are the benefits of Fibre Support?
It is an easy to take, boost to your dietary fibre intake.
