Can you overdose on Moringa?

Can you overdose on Moringa?

Yes. You can overdose on moringa. Let me ask you, can you overdose on water? Did I hear you say no? Now you see even water when taken too much could become a challenge for you. I remember back in my university days when I started water therapy, I would drink lots of water before brushing my teeth every morning. Some days I would experience some pains in my forehead. This happened particularly on the days I took too many cups of water. That is to say one can overdose on water too. It is known as water intoxication.

The day moringa embarrassed me

One day, my wife and I went out together.
On our way back, I started feeling so funny(actually I felt like going to the toilet) and there were no toilets around! The rest is history. Moringa embarrassed me that day. But you see, I was the one in the wrong. Hours before this embarrassing moment, I ate too many moringa seeds. So I overdosed on moringa seeds and they dealt with me, period. 
Learn from my experience so you save yourself same kind of embarrassment. Alright, so what is the ideal moringa dosage?

Ideal Moringa dosage

Exactly how much moringa is ideal per time?
Now we have different moringa products such as
Moringa oil
Moringa tea
Moringa leaf powder
Moringa seeds, etc.
So we shall be considering them one after the other.

Dosage for moringa oil

We recommend that you give a teaspoon or about 5ml of moringa oil per time and maximum of three teaspoons( 15mls) per day for children. Adults can take a full table spoon(15mls) per time and up to three table spoonfulls(45mls) per day.

Dosage for moringa tea

Moringa tea comes in tea bags. So it makes it easier to take a tea bag or two per time as you may choose. Now in the strictest sense, you may take more that just one or two moringa tea bags per time. This depends on you.

Dosage for Moringa leaf powder

Moringa leaf powder is usually administered with teaspoon/table spoon too. So for children, give them one teaspoon of the moringa powder per time. That is equivalent to about 5g of the leaf powder per time and that quantity could be administered thrice a day. That amounts to a total of 15grams of moringa leaf powder to be consumed by children per day.

For adults, you may take a tablespoon per time. That is equivilant to approximately 15 grams per time. Do this thrice a day. Moringa leaf powder is best eaten in soups, stews, etc. It does not easily dissolve in water, so take note.

Dosage for Moringa seeds

I have always stressed that you should take only two (2) moringa seeds at a time and not more. Then per day, it is recommended you take a maximum of four (4) moringa seeds except in some special cases. Kindly read the article on how to eat moringa seeds for best results to learn more.

Check the products labels for specific dosing information
