When taking Moringa it provides a noticeable energy boost within a few minutes. At the same time Moringa can fact support restful sleep when taken before going to bed. So how does it do it?
The first thing to note is that Moringa is caffeine free. The energy boost we experience therefore feels different than for example after a cup of coffee. Caffeine will stimulate our mind and make us hyper and energised to the point were we may even feel jittery. Moringa on the other hand will increase your focus and concentration levels. You will feel energised, but at the same time not like you have to use all your energy at once. It’s like being well rested. Being well-rested helps you keep your energy levels up and one can also concentrate better, but it does not make you run around hyper.
The secret to Moringa’s energy boost can be found in its unique combination of nutrients, in particular the combination of B vitamins, as well as a high amount of magnesium and potassium. Vitamin B greatly increases the absorption of magnesium and potassium in your body. This results in muscle relaxation, relief from anxiety, depression and headaches.

As Moringa does not stimulate our mind and does not contain any sugar of its own, but only helps convert the sugar already present to energy, it will not keep us awake when taken before going to bed. To the contrary, Moringa’s ability to help promote muscle relaxation and relieve stress means that it can greatly help achieve more restful sleep.
