Akan Moringa tea is in effect multi-vitamin wrapped up in a drink. Moringa is one of the most nutrient-rich plants on the planet, that provides a rich and rare combination of nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties.
The tea has a fresh & flavourful taste and combines the healing properties of moringa with those of lemongrass, which contains substances that are thought to relieve pain and swelling, reduce fever, improve levels of sugar and cholesterol in the blood, stimulate the uterus and menstrual flow. Lemongrass also has antioxidant properties and help to prevent the growth of some bacteria and yeast.
