Morninga? Possible WLS supplement?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I saw this article on the NPR website: powders and other various food stuffs made with it or out of it.

Has anyone here that has had WLS used this in addition to their normal Vitamin regiment? I have yet to have surgery, but this sounds like it could have the potential to help WLS patients who have trouble getting their needed nutrition in.

Thanks in advance! (Disclaimer: this is my first post ever! Woo! Apologies if it's all goofed up.)

Hello and welcome.

I take Moringa and I have noticed a difference. But it is a different kind of difference ... I know, sounds funny.

From what I understand, moringa helps your body to absorb nutrients more efficiently. So, it's not a substance which super-charges your body and makes you more beautiful to 83% of all accountants in Illinois ... But ... I just feel like my body works more efficiently.

I use the powder and add it to shakes. It tastes like a$$ if you add too much. Makes you feel like you are a koala bear without the high ... a leaf chewer because that is what it is ... ground leaves from Moringa trees.

I blend this with a teaspoon of fish oil, fresh fruit, yogurt and Protein powder. I call Breakfast.

Haha! Awesome thanks for the input! I bet the powder is the best way to get the most out of it as opposed to a power bar or similar.

To me, anything that makes the absorption of nutrients after WLS work better is something worth checking out!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
