Untouched nature mesmerizes me how it lives in harmony within itself; plants, animals and microorganisms, all intertwined in a sometimes chaotic yet cyclical unity. This perspective shaped my childhood and evolved into a quest for knowledge of ethnobotany (study of the relationships between peoples and plants). I'm humbled that this exploration allowed me to build a line of natural health products.
At MRM, we are inspired by nature and utilize science as a tool to learn, incorporate, support and educate what the natural world has to offer.
Respectfully, these Superfoods are the foods our ancestors thrived on, not today's foods we survive on.
Many Thanks, Mark Olson Founder of MRM

What is Organic Moringa Powder?
Moringa, often called "The Tree of Life" or "The Miracle Tree", actually looks more like a large bush than a tree. It has been consumed and used for therapeutic benefit for centuries in Africa and Asia, as the leave, pods, seeds and even roots are edible. No part is as nutritious as the whole leaves which contain protein, fiber , minerals and antioxidants. It grows so efficiently due to its hight chlorophyll content which can be up to 4 times that of wheatgrass.
MRM's Moringa is grown hundreds of miles away from any major cities in a pollution free area with organic farming methods. Because it grows rapidly and is drought tolerant this makes it a very sustainable plant and its cultivation is quickly spreading across the globe.
Our whole food powder comes from a gentle process that slowly dehydrates the leaves at low temperature so as not to damage the significant nutrients it contains. By gently removing the water, we keep the powder raw and its many beneficial compounds active and bioavailable. This results in a very versatile final product easily used in any kitchen for hot or cold recipes.
This nutrient dense whole leaf powder is approximately 30% protein and 40% fiber. What makes it a complete protein is that it contains all the essential amino acids. Protein is essential to supporting muscle maintenance and fiber can help maintain proper digestive health.
Along with these macronutrients Moringa also contains calcium, potassium and other minerals that support bone density and proper electrolyte balance. Due to the historical claimed benefits many many of the antioxidant compounds are being tested for their therapeutic potential. No need to wait as our whole leaf provides all those nutrients.
Moringa is native to Northern India where it is known as "The Miracle tree". Historical data it has been used since 2,000 BC as a therapeutic herb.
As its popularity grew its cultivation spread east across Asia and west to Africa and the Mediterranean. In ancient Egypt the plant was prized for the moisturizing benefits of its oil and was later introduced to the Romans. Today all parts of this life giving plant are used around the world.
