What is Moringa and what is it used for?

Moringa is a plant that is native to South Asia, but it has been found to grow in other parts of the world as well.

The plant has many benefits, including being an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, reducing the risk of diabetes and heart disease, and helping with weight loss.

They are also often used in cooking or can be dried and ground into powder for use in smoothies or other products.


Moringa has also been used as a traditional medicine to treat various ailments like asthma, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. It is also commonly found in supplements that are marketed as having anti-aging properties or improving mental clarity.

Moringa has also been promoted as a sustainable solution to hunger and poverty.

Moringa is very easy to grow (if you are in the right regions of the world)

The plant is believed to have high levels of nutrients, which are able to be eaten raw or used as food by animals.

Moringa leaves also provide shade, so the plant can support households in places where food is scarce or the land is crowded.

Moringa can be used for an assortment of beauty treatments.

Oil extracted from the leaves can be massaged onto your hair to moisturize and prevent breakage. It can also be used as a facial mask by mixing it with honey and milk for a natural scrub that boosts cell renewal.

Common Moringa Uses

Moringa has many different uses.

It can be used as a natural alternative to painkillers, as a beauty product, and even as a cooking ingredient.

Moringa is also used in the medical field.

Moringa is commonly used to help with stomach and digestive issues.

It can also be used to help with skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

Moringa can also help with allergies by reducing inflammation in the nose and throat.

Moringa has been shown to help males with libido and testosterone issues.

With high antioxidant properties, there are many times when Moringa is used strictly for its antioxidant properties. It has also been shown to decrease enlarged prostates by up to 20%.

Our favorite use of Moringa is mental clarity and energy. Nothing gets your day off to a better start than a Moringa tea. Instantly feeling more alert and more prepared for the day.

What is Kratom, and what is it used for?

Kratom is a natural product that comes from the plant Mitragyna Speciosa. It has been used as a traditional medicine in Southeast Asia for centuries. The leaves of the kratom tree are harvested from the ground and dried out.

Kratom can be consumed in many different ways, but the most common way is to chew on its leaves, make tea with it or smoke it.

Kratom has been used for many purposes, but mostly as a pain reliever and an opium substitute.


It can also be used to help people with opiate addiction, anxiety, depression and even diarrhea.

The main active compounds of Kratom are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine which act on the same brain receptors as morphine does.

Kratom contains alkaloids that are said to provide relief from pain and help with depression, anxiety, and even opioid withdrawal symptoms.

Is Kratom illegal In The United States?

Kratom in the United States is seen as a controlled substance.

This means it is not illegal at the federal level and is handled at the state level.

I’d check your state’s laws on Kratom before you even think about these two.

Why would you use Moringa and Kratom Together?

First, we have to dig a little deeper into Kratom to understand where this pairing could even make sense.

Kratom, unlike Moringa – has many different strains.

These strains have different effects on the body once ingested. With Moringa, you will be mostly concerned with just the quality of the plant – but with Kratom you are also concerned about the strain that you take.

Kratom Strains

There are sub strains within each strain of Kratom, so we will have to take a general approach to all of these.

For example, there are 50+ sub-strains just in the “Red” strain category.

Red Strain of Kratom

The red strain is for those dealing with the traditional inflammatory issues.

The red strain has been shown to decrease pain and increase the quality of sleep. A go-to for those looking to “relax”

The easiest way to think about this is the red strain is the “relaxing” strain.

Green Strain
of Kratom

The green strain of Kratom is mostly used for mood support.

Since it is “middle of the pack” in terms of stimulating and relaxing – we see this strain used mostly as a mood supporter.

Seen as a “well-rounded” Kratom strain, this is a good place for people to start with Kratom. After using the green strain for a while, users are able to either go for a more relaxing strain or for a more stimulating strain.

White Strain
of Kratom

White strains of kratom are seen as the most stimulating.

Used for those chasing a clear mind and a day full of clarity.

There are even some people who use White strain Kratom instead of Coffee.

Many use it before studying or work – leveraging the Kratom to get the most out of their time (studying for a test, etc)


Is Moringa, Kratom?

While both Moringa and Kratom are plants, they are not the same thing. Many people get this confused because both of these products usually come in powdered form and look very similar. These products are completely different plants, that happen to look similar in their powdered form.

Moringa Kratom – Theory or Fact?

So, where does Moringa Kratom come into play?

Personally, I see a few avenues where you can leverage the two of these together.


There are two strategies that I would employ if you’re going to start mixing these two of these.

Strategy 1

You want to leverage both a red or green strain of Kratom and still use Moringa.

To do this, I’d take Moringa in the morning to take advantage of all the different benefits that Moringa has in terms of stimulation and clarity.

This will allow your mind to be clear state to be uplifted.

These two strains of Kratom potentially could counteract the positive effects of Moringa.

To beat this, you take your red or green strain of Kratom before bed.

This way you still get the sleep and anti-inflammatory benefits of Kratom, and your need for mental clarity (at nighttime) is probably minimal as you’ve already handled most of your mental work for the day.

Strategy 2

The strategy that I’d employ is taking both a White strain of Kratom and Moringa together in the morning. Both Moringa and white strain Kratom are incredibly stimulating.

The two of these will work together to create an incredible sense of clarity.

Instead of the two working against each other (like the strategy above) these two plants are working together and helping YOU have the day that you should have.

Final Thoughts, Moringa vs Kratom

There does seem to be some reason for Kratom.

People have seen anxiety reduced and sleep improved on Kratom. With incredible results on Chronic pain, it’s easy to see why so many people jump to Kratom.

Let me be honest here.

I will not be picking up Kratom personally. Before starting this review, I was incredibly eager to add Kratom to my morning routine.

With the research I’ve done, it doesn’t seem to bring too much to me personally to justify adding it to my routine.

Since I have no need for anxiety support or do I need help sleeping, both the red and green strains have little importance to me.

This would leave me with just the White strain of Kratom.

While I do think this strain is very powerful, I just couldn’t find enough benefits (that Moringa doesn’t have) to justify adding it.

When would you add Kratom to Moringa?

Personally, the red strain of Kratom seemed the most interesting.

Helping someone sleep better has been shown to have such incredible effects on someone’s well-being.

If I was dealing with sleep troubles, anxiety, or chronic pain – I would find a way to fit a Kratom Tea into my nighttime routine.

I think there was a ton of benefit there for people who are dealing with those types of things.

The green and white strains seemed to be a little lackluster in benefit, mostly seen as a “mood booster” or supporting clarity of mind.

I think Moringa already improves mood and clarity of mind – and has a TON of other benefits.

I won’t be adding Kratom to my morning routine – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
