Review: Nutu Skincare
Moringa, the most talked about green leaf these days, derives from the tree native to the Himalayas that has been cultivated for thousands of years for medicinal and nutritional purposes. The moringa leaves contain the world’s most nutrient-rich source of plant protein and can be consumed fresh, dried or in powdered form. Nutu comes from the French phrase nous tous, meaning “all of us.” The brand’s mission is to promote a clean cycle of health, Nutu runs on the belief that the health of the one depends on the health of the many in turn depends on the health of the one. They’re building a sustainable business by working with women-led co-ops in West Africa and regenerating the permaculture by being self-sufficient in agro-forestry.
In the recent months, moringa has been the buzz just as kale was a few years ago. What’s great about moringa is that it is all encompassing and historically goes back to Ayurveda (one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems developed in India over 3,000 years ago) . It was also used in traditional Chinese medicine for reducing inflammation, increasing energy (proteins, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E & minerals calcium, potassium, iron, folate & magnesium), boosting immunity and preventing free radical cell damage (46 antioxidants, isothiocyanate, flavonoids), alkalizing and detoxifying the blood (circulatory stimulants) and reducing blood sugar levels. Moringa in the simplest terms is health from the ground up.
As a creative entrepreneur, moringa is the antioxidant I need everyday in order to work smarter, feel alert and to keep my overall health in pristine check.
Nutu offers other categories of moringa such as powder (tasty, health additive to soups, pasta sauces, chia seed puddings, etc), capsules, rose salve and even moringa dark chocolate bars. There’s a ton of scientific studies that prove the power of moringa, the little leaf that could possibly change the world, improve your overall health and also create a more sustainable environment.
