Fat Burning – Moringa better than Caffeine?

Moringa Oleifera

Moringa tree is rich in iron, potassium and multivitamins, especially vitamin A.

Moringa tree contains four times the amounts of vitamin A in carrots and thus can help prevent blindness.

The tree’s leaves contain high amounts of vitamin C, which is seven times more than oranges.

Moringa tree’s leaves contain twice the amount of protein and four times more calcium than milk.

Moringa is also rich in potassium it contains triple the amount in bananas.

Caffeine was isolated from coffee in 1820 by a German chemist, Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, and in 1821 by French chemists working independently by Robiquet, Pelletier and Caventou.   Found in varying quantities in the beans, leaves, and fruit of some plants, where it acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills certain insects feeding on the plants.  It is most commonly consumed by humans in infusions extracted from the bean of the coffee plant and the leaves of thetea bush, as well as from various foods and drinks containing products derived from the kola nut.

So which is better for burning fat?

My personal belief is that anything natural from the earth like moringa has the potential to be far more beneficial than an alkaloid extracted from a coffee bean.

Moringa has more nutrition per gram than caffeine so with extra UMPH, u get more bang for your buck with moringa.  The extra vitamins and minerals will go a long way in repairing and strengthening damaged muscle tissues from a workout.  The stronger and faster your muscles recover, the more fat calories you can burn during your next workout.

Makes sense to me.
