Know what you eat - Nutrition facts

Moringa Oleifera leaves are a highly nutritious source of micronutrients, macronutrients, trace minerals and amino acids. 

Micronutrients are one of the major groups of nutrients your body needs. In general it is vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are necessary for energy production, immune function, blood clotting and other functions. Meanwhile, minerals play an important role in growth, bone health, fluid balance and several other processes. MORICEYLON® moringa oleifera leaves contain Vitamin B1, B2, B3, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, B-Carotene,Vitamin E, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Iron and Zink and 20 amino accids including the 9 essential amino acids (ITI Sri Lanka). It is a natural way to boost performance, improve your mood and to stay healty.

Vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C are water-soluble vitamins. Vitamins A and E are Fat-soluble vitamins. Regardless of type, each vitamin has a unique role, their functions are related.

  1. Vitamin B1 (thiamine): Helps convert nutrients into energy (1)

  2. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): Necessary for energy production, cell function and fat metabolism (2)

  3. Vitamin B3 (niacin): Drives the production of energy from food (3)

  4. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid): Required for the creation of neurotransmitters and collagen, the main protein in your skin (4)

  5. Vitamin A: Necessary for proper vision and organ function (5)

  6. Vitamin E: Assists immune function and acts as an antioxidant that protects cells from damage (6)


Macrominerals are needed in higher amounts than trace minerals in order to perform their specific roles in your body.

  1. Calcium: Necessary for proper structure and function of bones and teeth. Assists in muscle function and blood vessel contraction (7)

  2. ​Magnesium: Assists with over 300 enzyme reactions, including regulation of blood pressure (8)

  3. Phosphorus: Part of bone and cell membrane structure (9)

  4. Potassium: Electrolyte that maintains fluid status in cells and helps with nerve transmission and muscle function (10)

  5. Sodium: Electrolyte that aids fluid balance and maintenance of blood pressure (11)


Trace minerals are needed in smaller amounts than macrominerals  and some of their functions are;

  1. Iron: Helps provide oxygen to muscles and assists in the creation of certain hormones (12)

  2. Zinc: Necessary for normal growth, immune function and wound healing (13)


Amino acids, often referred to as the building blocks of proteins, and are organic compounds composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, along with a variable side chain group. Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. Though all 20 are important for your health, only 9 amino acids are classified as essential. 

  1. Phenylalanine: Plays an integral role in the structure and function of proteins and enzymes and the production of other amino acids (14)

  2. Valine:  Helps stimulate muscle growth and regeneration and is involved in energy production (15)

  3. Threonine: Plays a role in fat metabolism and immune function (16)

  4. Tryptophan: Is a neurotransmitter that regulates your appetite, sleep and mood (17)

  5. Methionine: Plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification. It’s also necessary for tissue growth (18)

  6. Leucine: Helps regulate blood sugar levels, stimulates wound healing and produces growth hormones (19)

  7. Isoleucine: It is involved in muscle metabolism and is heavily concentrated in muscle tissue. It’s also important for immune function, hemoglobin production and energy regulation (20)

  8. Lysine: Lysine plays major roles in hormone and enzyme production. It’s also important for energy production and immune function (21)

  9. Histidine: Histidine is used to produce histamine, a neurotransmitter that is vital to immune response, digestion, sexual function and sleep-wake cycles (22)


​Other Amino Acids include Aspartic Acid, Glutamic Acid Serine, Histidine, Glysine, Arginine, Alamine, Cystine and GABA (ITI Sri Lanka)
