If you have noticed some reddish bumps on your skin after shaving, you might be suffering from razor bumps.
Razor bumps often occur when the hair curls and grows back into your skin. This can irritate your skin causing swelling and sometimes even scarring when not taken care of immediately.
Since the skin tends to consider this growth as an infection it will try to fight it back hence the swelling which can be painful when touched.
Sometimes the razor bumps become infected with bacteria which can make them appear like breakout of acne. Unless taken care of immediately, you will end up with a big problem regardless of whether they are located on your face, jaw, legs or armpits.
Prevention is the Key
Before you start looking for the right treatment, you should start learning how to
prevent razor bumps from occurring in the first place. So, for those who don’t want to experience this particular problem when they shave, here are some steps that you should follow.
# Refrain from shaving daily – If you are prone to razor bumps avoid shaving for 2 to 3 days at least especially during close shave. It would be better if you use an electric razor when controlling your facial hair in between close shaves. Hair shouldn’t be too hard to manage especially when shaving your head or perhaps your legs. In this case, letting your skin rest for a few days can help prevent razor burns from occurring.
# Use warm water – To prevent razor bumps you might want to consider applying warm water on the area where you want to shave. Warm water can help soften the hair so you can shave them easily and prevent curling from occurring.
You can either shave after you take a shower or place a wash cloth that you had soaked on warm water onto the area of your body you wish to shave. Doing any of these steps can help prevent razor burns from occurring when you remove your hair through shaving.
# Correct shaving techniques – If you don’t want to suffer from razor bumps then you should follow the right methods to shaving. You should start off by applying shaving cream and letting it stay for a few minutes to make sure that your hair and skin soften prior to shaving. Keep in mind to avoid shaving against the growth of your hair. This can cause hair strands to curl back which can then cause razor burns to appear.
# Clean your razor with rubbing alcohol – Keeping your razor clean after every use is highly recommended to prevent bacteria from getting into the pores of your skin when you shave. A clean razor can prevent razor bumps from occurring.
# Avoid picking on your razor bumps – Scratching or pricking your razor burns can further exacerbate the problem. If you can’t stand the itching, apply a few drops of alcohol on the affected area to numb it. This step is important especially when the surface of your skin has nicks, scrapes or cuts. After shave products that have tea tree oil and alcohol can disinfect your skin so no bacteria will be able to live after shaving.
How To Get Rid Of Razor Bumps – Treating Razor Bumps
Now that you have an idea on how to prevent razor bumps from occurring, you should learn how to treat them if ever they occur. Fortunately, there are some helpful tips that you can take advantage of when treating this problem which won’t cost you a lot of money in the process.
# Avoid Shaving Problem Areas Until they Fully Heal – If you have razor bumps, avoid shaving the same area because it can cause them to break out. Allowing your skin to heal itself is important so let it be for a few more days or longer before shaving again.
# Use Hydrocortisone Cream – This product has some properties that can help alleviate the redness and swelling of your razor bumps. Apply the cream on areas that have been affected by razor bumps to treat them immediately.
# Use Ointments with Bacitracin – Just like hydrocortisone cream, this type of ointment can also help treat razor bumps quickly. It can also prevent infection from occurring.
# Use Astringents – Astringents are quite useful when it comes to alleviating the appearance of razor bumps.
These are but a few known methods on how to get rid of razor bumps that you can use to clear up the red bumps and swellings on your body. Sticking to the preventive measures mentioned here is highly recommended especially if you don’t want to be aggravated by red bumps on your face, jaw, armpits and legs. Shaving properly can do wonders not just to your skin but with your overall appearance.
Regardless of whether you are a guy or a girl, taking advantage of the tips mentioned here can help you treat razor bumps when they occur. Keeping your body clean looking all the time isn’t that hard especially when you follow the different methods here. If you don’t want to end up with many bumps and swelling on your skin due to shaving, it is imperative that you learn how to shave properly and what to do in case your skin gets irritated.
There are other methods that you can consider as home remedies. You might want to try them out to determine which one will work best for your razor bumps so you can get to clear them as soon as possible. If the bumps only worsen it would be better to stay away from shaving for a few days or longer until your skin gets the chance to heal itself properly.
With these things in mind, you can free yourself from razor bumps while at the same time maintaining that clean look you have always wanted. Using the right tools and shaving technique, you can have that smooth looking skin minus the razor bumps.

This post is a transcript of following Video. It explains the short coming of current politics and how can we overcome it. It is really well presented but is still hard for common man to hold attention to for long time aka boring.
So I translated it for reading which is easier to grasp for really curious minds.
The idea that there’s something rotten wrong with our democracy has become a truism especially in the wake of public outrage over MPs expenses but what really is it that’s wrong with our system of democracy and what is it that needs to be done.
My observation begins with this that democracy can only be as successful as we the people make it. But how well-suited are we to being good democrats.
We’ve come over recent years to understand more about the idiosyncrasies(particularity) of our mental processes as some of these appear to compromise our ability to make wise and fair democratic judgments.
We are for example a bit confused about the medium and the long term. If people are asked to choose between 50 pounds now 100 pounds in a year most of us will take the 50 quid.
But if we’re asked to choose between 50 pounds in five years and a hundred pounds in six years which in a way is the same choice we’ll all choose the hundred.
We tend to be risk-averse feeling more strongly about losing something we have than gaining something we don’t.
There are problems to run our objectivity. We tend systemically to think our own successes are a result of our qualities but our failures down to circumstance and we think the precise opposite of other people.
To take a trivial example 90% of us report that we are above average drivers.
And there are problems with our judgement. We’re not very good at predicting what will make us happy and even more surprisingly we’re not even very good at describing what made us happy in the past.
Now we don’t think like this because we’re bad or because we’re damaged. This is just how we have evolved.
So..short-term, innumerate(unknowledgeable) and self-centered…On the face of it we don’t look like we’re particularly suited to being good democratic citizens.
But of course this isn’t the whole story because surely democratic processes should involve overcoming the problems of applying prehistoric instinct to the complexities of the modern world.
Instead shouldn’t it mean working together to make good decisions despite
our limitations. This I think is where the core problem lies because instead of democracy being
understood and arranged as a realm in which we think past our mental predispositions(inclination) it offers to be a sphere where we can pander(give in to) to them.
The democratic process itself has taken on the language the norms and the techniques of consumerism. The customer is always right is echoed in the motto of triangulated politics.
The voter is always right. Or as we should say in our electoral system the voter in the marginal constituency is always right.
Worcester woman is always right. The problem is she isn’t.
Take these findings. Most of us think more power should be devolved to the local level and even bigger majority say that public service standards should be exactly the same everywhere.
Patient satisfaction ratings for the NHS are higher now than they have ever been in the history of the NHS.
But 56 percent of us think the health service is in crisis.
We agree that we need to change our lives to counter global warming but admit we have no plans to do so ourselves.
Now it’s hard enough I know because I used to work in Downing Street. It’s hard enough for politics to reconcile different interests and preferences in society.
But now a combination of the complexity of modern life and consumerist expectations mean that politicians face the challenge of reconciling conflicting interests and preferences in the same people.
Generally it’s a challenge that they dodge.
So if we wanted people to see democracy as inherently about dilemmas and trade-offs about balancing interests within people within society and across time what are the kinds of things we might do.
First devolve more power because it’s easier at the local level for people to relate to issues and see trade-offs and to appreciate how their own behavior shapes those trade-offs.
Second every year the government should hold at least two high-profile national citizens juries on major policy questions and with the government committed either to implementing the recommendations or explaining why not.
And Third require all policy advice to ministers to be published in full. Every policy has disadvantages and it’s about time politicians came clean about this.
Now lest you’re worried of my inconsistency I freely admit that they’re probably downsides to those three proposals.
My point is this the problem with our democracy is not as we often think about
the performance of politicians nor even the workings of our Constitution but it’s about the content of the democratic conversation.
Proper processes of democratic deliberation in which we either participate directly or which we can acknowledge as legitimate would help us to be less petulant wiser and the more responsible taskmasters or our beleaguered(under pressure) representatives.
So these are some of the practical ways we might encourage people to be better citizens. But what could new thinking about human nature mean for our broader view of society.
One of the most powerful concepts in modern sociology is that of reflexivity developed and popularized by the author of the Third Way Anthony Giddens.
Putting it simply this is the idea that modern citizens do not see themselves as mere objects of impersonal religious, national or class forces but as subjects of their own lives each with their own individual story.
Giddens talks about moving from class politics to life politics. This he contends must enable citizens to work through issues at the intersection of personal life stories and social forces in the changing context of the 21st century.
In absence of the binds of tradition and deference(Respect) Gibbons argues we must rely on new democratic discourse to work through the challenges of modernity promoting responsibilities, new forms of solidarity and trust in new social institutions.
But there’s a problem and the problem is reflexive individuals, their self-centeredness reinforced by free-market ideology and consumerist mass marketing can all too easily fail to see why they need these new forms of discourse.
Can’t they just do what they want and leave the rest to the hidden hand of the market or the hapless(unfortunate) blundering(err) of the political classes.
So I believe both the case for a new collective spirit and the principles that could underpin(support) the development of modern civic and democratic spaces are to be found in thinking about human nature.
Cooperation and engagement are not things we ought to do but a necessity to help us steer a course through the modern world using brains that evolved before the invention of the wheel.
We became the social animals we are subsisting(surviving) enclosed homogeneous communities with deeply respected and very slowly evolving bodies of knowledge and culture our first 200,000 years.
We find ourselves now, the last 50 years living as part of an economically abundant diverse communities in a fast changing global knowledge economy.
This moment in human affairs has been characterized as the teenage years of the post enlightenment project. A period of change in creativity but also self-indulgence, confusion and some danger.
As a schoolboy socialists in the 1970s direct grant Grammar School the first explicitly political arguments I ever had were about human nature.
My vision of the good society arrested on a view that people are fundamentally collaborative and benign(kind). Something only hidden by the depredations of what I called the system. Working-class Tory(member or supporter of conservative party in UK) mates mocked my naivety.
To them we were all self-interested individuals. Those who succeeded did so by their own efforts those who failed or cheated would only change if they were incentivized or compelled.
Yet for most of the 20 years subsequently that I’ve been involved in politics, debates about human nature have been restricted to criminality and other social pathologies as if only bad people fail to conform to the rational man model of neoclassical economics.
Gibbons was right. New times do require a rethinking of old political categories, new thinking about human nature, combining insights from natural science, social science and philosophy encouraged us to revisit and recombine ideas from the left and the right.
The left is right that society matters but the right is right to believe that growing self-reliance and thickening civic binds provides a more powerful even for slower and Messier route to social progress than the well-intentioned schemes of state bureaucracies.
A new politics of human nature encourages us to accept the flaws in our intuitive sense of self, recognizing our psychological frailties and acknowledging the social nature of the brain.
It requires us to see that the existential mirror of modernity is distorting. I have in the past described the contrasts found in an opinion poll after opinion poll between our undue personal optimism and our equally undue social pessimism.
But the individual and personal is not quite the domain of self-control we imagined it to be and if we are creative and ambitious we can exert more influence over the social sphere than we’ve tended to think possible.
It may not be an easy route to the fulfillment of our amazing human potential but is there really any other. And it’s a route that I hope through its lectures, through its research projects and through the actions of our amazing fellows the RSA will help to chart in the years ahead.

Whatever the make and model you eventually decide as your best washing machine choice, you will need to determine these universal considerations and useful information first so you can choose the best washing machine to fit your needs and budget.
Choose the right size and capacity
Always remember that a washing machine’s capacity is indicated in kilograms and refers to dry clothes, not wet clothes. With this in mind, consider your household’s laundry requirements namely:
How big is your household?
How much will one laundry load be?
How often are clothes washed for a week?
For example, in my personal experience, a mid-capacity washing machine of 7kg to 9kg is great for a family of 4.
For a family of two, the basic washing machine capacity of 5kg to 6kg is suitable, taking a sample load of two tops, two pairs of pants, two towels, a full bedsheet with two pillowcases.
However, if a family washes less often, they might decide on larger capacity washing machines for bigger laundry loads. Consider the physical space for your washing machine.
Remember that larger capacity will mean larger size. If your laundry area falls short on the space requirement, a larger capacity washing machine might be for you. You wash more often, instead.
Always measure your space to check if you have enough room for your choice of washing machine before making a purchase.
Also, note that higher capacity washing machines consume more water and electricity.
Fully Automatic Machines or Semi-Automatic Washing Machines?
Semi-automatic washing machines
These are the most basic washing machines available in the market. They consist of two drums – one for washing and another for drying. This entails doing laundry tasks manually.
This includes filling the washing tub with water then draining it, moving the clothes from the washing tub to the drying tub, adjusting some of the controls for every step in the laundry cycle and the like.
They are however cheaper and allow you to add more clothes or remove articles mid-cycle. They also consume less electricity plus you can control how much water is poured into the drums.
Fully-automatic washing machines
A fully-automatic washing machine needs the least amount of effort and allows little human involvement in washing.
You load your laundry from either the top or the front parts of the washing machine – depending on what type of machine you purchased.
After closing the washing machine doors, you just need to set the type of wash you require and it does the entire cycle all by itself – no need for pouring or draining water and lifting wet clothes from one tub to another.
With this, you can be free to do other things. Fully automatic washing machines are also more expensive, consume more power and need more water.
Top Load Machines or Front Load Washing Machines?
Top-load washing machines
If you prefer not to bend down when putting clothes into the washing machine, a top-loading washing machine may be the unit for you. Water is pumped into the machine from a single continuous water connection.
There is only a single tub and this functions both for washing and drying. Because they have fewer features, top-load washing machines cost lesser than front-load washing machines.
Front-load washing machines
In a front-load washing machine, you need to bend over to wash your laundry items are loaded and unloaded from the face of the machine.
They offer more features than a top-load model and are therefore more expensive. Because they are heavier, they are also difficult to move around.
Most models do not allow you to add or remove laundry mid-cycle, though there are several that allow you to do this. However, front-load washing machines offer the best quality washes, consuming less water and electricity with the same single tub for washing and drying.
Inverter Technology in Washing Machines
Inverter technology allows for more efficient use of power in a washing machine.
How does this differ from the conventional washing machine?
Most washing machines run on a certain power and function level called the optimum load. This optimum load does not change whether you are washing many items or only a few clothes, making the power consumption and wear and tear of the washing machine at the same level for any wash load.
In inverter technology, the washing machine is equipped with sensors to adjust speed and power to suit the amount of laundry put inside.
This intelligent washing machine produces less noise and is more efficient in saving power plus it preserves the lifespan of your washing machine and its parts.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which is more efficient – a top-loading washing machine or a front-loading unit?
Although a top-loading machine is less expensive and more convenient to load, in the end, the front-loading washing machine is more efficient.
The cost difference can be recovered over time through savings in water and power consumption with maximised soap usage and lesser time spent attending to the laundry.
How many clothes can I out into a washing machine for maximum wash and least tangling?
For top-loaders, the general rule is to place laundry loosely in the tub up to the top of the agitator.
For front-loaders, you can fill the drum until full with minimal compression of clothes. Always allow for space to tumble without overloading.
Is it better to buy a washing machine with a bigger size and capacity?
Cleaning performance and value for money is not determined by the washing machine size and capacity.
Get bigger units only if you have bigger wash loads. Fewer but larger washes are better than frequent yet smaller laundry. This results in water and power savings.
What type of drum should I get? Plastic or Stainless?
Generally, stainless steel drums are more durable and easier to clean than plastic ones, withstanding higher spins better.
It results in better drying. However, modern heavy-duty polymer plastic ones are also durable and more inexpensive.
It is also normal for plastic tubs to discolor and accumulate smell faster than the stainless tubs.
What are the basic features to look out for in a good washing machine?
These are the basic features that your new washing machine must have:
Easy-to-operate, legible and conveniently-placed controls
A rust-proof tub
Adjustable/flexible water levels
Stability and minimal space requirements
Easy access to installation and repair services
Is having a dryer a must?
A washing machine with an inbuilt dryer might be for you if you have no time to hang laundry to dry or if you have space limitations at home.
Training a good hunting dog begins long before the pup is introduced to guns or taken into the field.
No matter what training program you decide to use is based on proper socialization of your dog.
Socialization is, quite simply, introducing your dog to new people, experiences and places.
This early introduction allows him to be comfortable in unfamiliar situations and develop the confidence and desire to learn new things.
Though many inexperienced owners don’t see the necessity of socializing their dogs, those who know better realize training a dog that is not properly socialized is like trying to build a house without taking the time to lay a proper foundation.
Socialization of your new hunter begins the day he arrives at your home. Taken from mother and his litter mates, the puppy will feel lost and lonely. He will also, however, want to explore his new home.
If you have puppy-proofed the house, there is no reason you shouldn’t let him take a look around. Supervise, but from a distance.
Give the pup plenty of time and space to check things out. He will eventually make his way back to you.
Give him lots of affection; calm rubs on the head, stroking his back and sides and even giving his tail a very gentle tug are all things that will be of benefit later. Lift the puppy’s cheeks and ruffle his ears.
Besides the attention, the pup is also learning that it is ok to be touched. This will make future visits to the vet’s office or groomer a lot easier on everyone concerned.
Be sure that your touch is gentle and calm. This allows the pup to know that you are in charge. Rough-housing with the pup puts you on his level and gives him the mistaken impression that he is your equal.
Begin using your pup’s name right away and you will be amazed at how quickly he will begin to respond to it.
When in the house or yard, give your pup as much freedom as you can. Supervise, but again, from a distance.
You want to pup to explore and experience as many new things as he can, without danger to him or your things.
Call him to you once in awhile and when he comes to you, tell him he’s a good boy and give him a small treat (freeze-dried liver or a tiny scrap of jerky is a favorite around our house). Then give the freedom to go explore some more.
If the pup will be staying in the house, set ground rules with family members prior to bringing him home.
Consistency from everyone in the house is the only way the dog will learn to follow the rules in his new home. When his behavior is incorrect, a firm “no” accompanied by a frown will soon let him know you are displeased.
In the event the behavior is repeated, grasp the loose skin between his shoulders and give him a gentle shake. The trick here is to let the pup know you are not happy with his behavior, but not to hurt him or make him afraid of you.
NEVER clap your hands or use other sharp noises (slapping a newspaper, etc) to discipline a dog that will be trained for hunting.
Though it may help you correct the undesirable behavior, you are setting yourself up to have a dog that will shy away from loud, sharp noises. Since you want the dog comfortable with the sound of gunfire, this is a training mistake you want to avoid.
The new puppy should have a space of his own, whether it is a kennel in the barn or a crate inside the house.
Use common sense when training your new puppy to the crate. Most hunting dogs are transported to the hunting site in a crate – be sure that the crate is not something he dreads.
The crate should be used as a sleeping place and many people feed their dogs in a crate, at least when they’re puppies.
By feeding the puppy in the crate, he learns to associate it with a good thing – his dinner. Some people leave the crate door open, except when it is bedtime or if they are going to be gone from the house.
This allows the puppy to wander in and out and become comfortable with the crate without feeling confined by it. If the crate is properly introduced, many dogs will voluntarily lay down for a nap in their crate or retreat to it if they are in trouble.
One last note on crates: if the puppy whines during the night, do not let him out of the crate.
If he is allowed to leave the crate when he whines, he will think that whining will get him what he wants and you will end up with the dog that drives you crazy.
Instead, distract him by putting a pig ear or a chew toy in the crate with him when you close the door at bedtime. He will soon learn that when you close the crate door he needs to chew on his toy or curl up and sleep.
Any dog, but especially one that will be used to hunt, needs to be able to adapt to new and even frightening situations.
Without this ability, the dog become unpredictable or even dangerous. One way to avoid this is to expose the young puppy to as many different places, smells, people and noises as possible.
One thing that must be avoided in these early socialization experiences is allowing the puppy to become terrified of whatever new thing you are exposing him to.
If you have spent enough time with the puppy at home, this should not be a problem. After taking him away from his mother, you should have taken over the role as his care-giver and protector.
He should be feeling comfortable with you and trusting you to take care of him and act in his best interests.
Now that you’ve gotten to the point that the puppy trusts you and you’ve spent enough time to be able to “read” him and gauge his level of comfort, it’s time to expose the pup to as many strange sights, noises, smells and people as possible.
Take them with you when you go to the park, the lake or a friend’s house. Let him ride along with you in the car or truck when you drop the kids off for school. Remember, anything that the puppy hasn’t yet been exposed to can be new and exciting for him, as long as it is properly introduced.
This is where you come in. Though you want the pup exposed to as many situations as possible, make sure you remain in control and don’t let anything happen that will cause him to be hurt or badly scared.
An important aspect of proper socialization is encouraging the dog’s desire to explore new places.
Though you need to be aware of safety issues and local laws regarding loose dogs, you need to let you pup run around and explore off-lead in as many places as possible.
If your town is strict about dogs being leashed, ask around and see if there is a leash-free dog park in the area. This allows your pup to learn to interact with not only other dogs, but their owners as well.
You want to allow him as much freedom to explore as possible. When he comes after you call him, tell him he’s a good boy and give him a small treat (freeze-dried liver or a tiny scrap of jerky are both favorites with our dogs). Then be sure and give him the freedom to explore some more.
Whether off-lead or on, introduce your future hunting companion to people.If he seems shy you can allow them to give him a treat, but make sure he sees YOU hand it to them.
It is never a good idea to teach your dog to take food from someone he doesn’t know.
By the time to pup is between eight and twelve weeks old, you can begin to teach him beginning commands, such as “no”, “sit”, “come”, “heel” and “stay”.
These commands will be the basis for later training and make the puppy into a companion and hunting dog that you will be proud of.
A properly socialized hunting dog will be secure and confident, but at the same time he will know that you are in charge. He will be comfortable interacting with both other dogs and with new people.
He will also have learned to put up with being restrained and told “no”.Remember – at this point in the puppy’s life, everything you do or say to him is a lesson.
By spending the time and effort you need to properly socialize your pup from the start, you will not only have a dog that will be easier to train, but you can look forward to having a hunting dog you can be proud of.
Moringa oleifera is a very common tree native to Indian subcontinent. But it has only recently come into picture with its health benefits. Its fruit-the drum stick is a very commonly used vegetable. Also its flowers are used in some Indian cuisines.
It is so common in India that it is usually discarded or thrown away. This is because even Indians are not aware of its benefits. I have used it personally and haven’t seen any side effects.
Dating back the Ancient Greeks and Romans, moringa oleifera has been extensively cultured to be a supplier of many natural remedies.
Most know the moringa oleifera tree as the drumstick tree because of its native tropical home.
The western world answers the question, “What is moringa oleifera?” with, “The horse radish tree.” It is known as the horseradish tree because of its roots.
Regardless of what it is called or what part of the tree gives it its popularity, moringa oleifera extract along with moringa oleifera leaf brings with it a wealth of health benefits.
How does moringa benefit the body?
Taken from a small tree in India, moringa oleifera extract and the moringa oleifera leaf have both been proven by many to reap many health benefits. In fact, when people ask, “What are the moringa oleifera health benefits?” or “Do I need moringa oleifera leaf or moringa oleifera extract?” the answer has to be prefaced with, “Every part of the three offers a different health benefit.” That’s right moringa oleifera leaf differs from oleifera extract. In fact, every single part of the tree brings with it some benefit to the body.
The Wonders behind the Miracle Tree
“The Miracle Tree” is irrefutably a strong description especially if branded on a tree with ironically tiny leaves. But its irony also keeps us wonder what’s in those tiny leaves that made Moringa Oleifera the miracle tree.
Science, with the use of its comprehensive researches, has finally verified what ancient folklores have known from their first-hand experience – Moringa oleifera is indeed the miracle tree. It may seem unbelievable but Moring oleifera’s tiny leaves can sustain a person’s life even if that’s all he has to eat.
Biggest health benefits of the moringa oleifera leaf
In fact, the moringa oleifera leaf, great source of vitamins and minerals. One Cup Moringa oleifera leaf serving offers:
Essential amino acids
Moringa oleifera leaf also contains essential B-complex vitamins that work to metabolize fat. These include:
What are the biggest health benefits of moringa oleifera extract?
Moringa oleifera extract has been dubbed the “tired blood” drug because of its proven ability to help with illness and disease. It has been confirmed to help with:
Type 2 diabetes
Recent students have found links between moringa oleifera extract and cancer remedies. While these findings are still in the research phase, moringa oleifera extract is showing very promising results in the fight to cure cancer—especially with regard to tumors.
Moringa oleifera extract is also very high in antioxidants. Antioxidants fight off free radicals in the body, so they have been linked to reduce the odds of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Moringa Oleifera: The Miracle Tree
The reason behind why Moringa oleifera is labelled as “The Miracle Tree” was rooted long before our ancestral foundation. Indian legends used to convey stories that this tree can prevent over 300 known diseases of the world. However, despite Moringa oleifera’s sturdy ancestral support, people of today’s generation questions its efficiency by asking is Moringa oleifera worthy enough to be called as the Miracle tree?
All parts of this tree including its seeds, pods, bark, roots, and leaves, are nutritionally significant making it one of the most generous contributors of life enhancing nutrients. The table below shows the most common nutrients found in Moringa oleifera:
7 times the amount in Orange
Helps the body fight diseases
4 times the amount in Carrots
Acts as a shield against eye, skin, heart, and gastrointestinal diseases
4 times the amount in milk
Builds strong bones and teeth
3 times the amount in Bananas
Aids in the normal function of brain and nerve cells
2 times the amount in Yogurt
Basic building block of cells
Moringa oleifera houses several nutrients and micronutrients that do not only help your body fight against many diseases but also make you glow in a healthy radiance. As research studies dig deeper to the molecular mechanisms of Moringa, the more Moringa oleifera divulges its all-natural nutritional wonders.
