Moringa – The Herb that Heals

Moringa – known by various names such as the miracle tree or the ben oil tree – is a medicinal plant that is extensively used in Ayurveda for its antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. When combined with herbs like Spearmint and Lemongrass, the medicinal properties are greatly enhanced – and complemented – giving you a holistic and healthy concoction. At BanLabs, we have two great green tea variants of this miraculous herb – Care Moringa & Giloy with Lemongrass and Care Moringa & Giloy with Spearmint.

The Moringa & Giloy match

Moringa is a nutritional herb that contains several useful nutrients including B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6, calcium, foliate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C), iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamine), and zinc.

Apart from boosting immunity, Giloy also has anti-oxidant properties and aids in digestion. It is also helpful in the treatment of respiratory tract disorders, arthritis, and other diseases.

When coupled with Giloy – the universal immunity booster that complements every medicinal herb – the nutritional properties of Moringa are greatly enhanced. Together, Moringa and Giloy complement one another not only providing you with nutrition but also healing your body.

Lemongrass or Spearmint?

Care Herbal Green tea offers you two variants of Moringa-Giloy green tea –

The choice is yours – both will add to the antioxidant properties of Giloy and aid digestion. But if you suffer from severe symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and gastric troubles, we recommend the Spearmint variety. Spearmint has long been used in Ayurveda to relieve symptoms of indigestion and fight bacterial infections. It is also known to reduce anxiety and relieve menstrual pain in women.
