Alpha-Carotene & Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A)
Alpha-carotene and beta-carotene are converted into Vitamin A by our body for the maintenance of good vision, healthy skin & tissues, strong bones and a strong immune system. Alpha-carotene and beta-carotene are also antioxidants which acts to delay or prevent cell damage and lowers the risks of chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.

Arginine, also known as L-arginine, is converted into nitric oxide in our body. Nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter that relaxes the blood vessels and improves blood circulation.

Beta-sitosterol or Campesterol
Beta-sitosterol is a sterol that come from plants, with a structure similar to the cholesterol produced in our body and can reduce cholesterol levels.

Caffeoylquinic Acid
The health benefits associated with caffeoylquinic acid include reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes type 2, and Alzheimer’s disease and antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities.

Glutathione is our body’s main antioxidant. It ensures the immune system function properly to fight infections. It is a master detoxifier as toxins stick to it and is gotten rid off through the stools. It also increases strength and endurance as well as shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development.

Histidine is a semi-essential amino acid to develop and maintain healthy tissues. It is especially important in the myelin sheath that coat nervous cells to ensure the transmission of messages from your brain to organs throughout your body. It is essential for good mental and physical health. It can naturally detoxify the body and produce both red and white blood cells.

Kaempferol is a flavonoid found in Moringa and other edible plants such as gingko, broccoli, cabbage, tomato, etc. Kaempferol is linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.



Leucine is a essential amino acid which breaks down faster than other amino acids during exercise. It stimulates the production of protein and energy molecules in your muscles and can help athletes rebuild muscle and increase physical endurance and strength.

Proline is an amino acid which is responsible for tissue repair, collagen formation, arteriosclerosis prevention and blood pressure maintenance.

Quercetin is an bioflavonoid which acts as an antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of substances that mediate the inflammatory response, such as histamine.

Rutin is a bioflavanoid with strong antioxidant properties. Oxerutin, which is derived from Rutin, has been used to treat or prevent varicose veins, haemorrhoids and leg ulcers.

Selenium is used by our bodies to make enzymes called selenoproteins. It works as antioxidants to protect cells. Some findings suggest that selenium can help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Threonine is an essential amino acid which keeps the tissues and muscles in our body strong and elastic, including the heart. It also builds strong bones and teeth. Threonine also plays a role to help the liver digest fats. It also helps in the production of antibodies to strengthen our immune system.

Tryptophan is an essential amino acids used by the body to make niacin, a vitamin B which is important for skin and nerves, digestion and serotonin. Serotonin is a brain chemical that plays a large role in mood and can create a feeling of well-being and relaxation.

Essential Amino Acids

Isoleucine is an amino acid that is best known for its ability to increase endurance and help heal and repair muscle tissue and encourage clotting at the site of injury. This amino acid is especially important to serious athletes and body builders because its primary function in the body is to boost energy and help the body recover from strenuous physical activity.

Lysine is an essential amino acid which increases the intestinal absorption of calcium and eliminates its excretion by the kidney, suggesting that it might be helpful in osteoporosis.

Methionine is an essential amino acid needed for creation of cartilage and may also help prevent hair loss and strengthen nails.

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid needed for the creation of DNA, brain signalling molecules such as dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline), and the skin pigment, melanin.

Valine is an amino acid involved in treating metabolic and liver diseases. It also regulates the body’s absorption of other amino acids.

Non-essential Amino Acids


Alanine is a amino acid that is involved in metabolism of sugar and acid and strengthening of immunity. It provides energy for muscles, brain and the central nervous system.

Aspartic acid
Aspartic acid is an amino acid which helps every cell in the body work. It is important in production and release of hormiones and normal functioning of the nervous system.

Cystine is an amino acid that helps form healthy skin, hair, bones, and connective tissue. It is also required to make glutathione. It works with Gluthathione to remove toxins from the liver.

Glutamine makes up most of the amino acids in our body. It plays an important role to remove the excessive ammonia which is a common waste product, from our body. It is important for normal functioning of our immune system, brain and digestion.

Glycine is a amino acids essential in maintaining healthy central nervous and digestive systems. It keeps the skin firm, regulate blood sugar levels and boost energy.

Serine is a amino acid derived from another amino acid, Glycine. It is important to overall physical and mental health. It is especially important to the proper functioning of the brain and central nervous system.

Tyrosine is a amino acid which regulates mood and stimulates the nervous system. It regulates blood pressure, speeds up the metabolism and prevent fatigue.
