As the Philippines seeks better ways to use its resources in combating climate change, a new discovery by a Filipino biotechnology company based in the U.S. has tapped a wonder plant in the country as a source of biofuel.
Malunggay, scientifically known as Moringa oleifera Lamk, which is widely grown in the Philippines and is considered one the world’s most useful plants, is found as a good source of Moringa oil 辣木膠囊. This oil is believed to be a biofuel source.
SECURA International announced that malunggay oil is being tapped by the North American Biofuels Inc. (NABI) since January as possible raw material for biodiesel production. As a result, the former is currently growing malunggay in 500,000-hectare farmland to meet the demands of NABI.
Since malunggay can easily be grown in the country, SECURA International president Danny Manayaga encouraged the Filipino farmers to take advantage of the situation in meeting the demands of the world for the Moringa oil supply to be used as biodiesel.
Manayaga said this business is sustainable since the market is very accessible. Currently, there are 165 marketing companies in the U.S. for biodiesel using soybean oil as raw material. It is expected that in the next 50 years, Japan and Korea will be the biggest markets of Moringa oil for their automobiles that will use biodiesel.
Others might be thinking of the real viability of Moringa oil as biodiesel. But the NABI has already authenticated that it has passed the biofuels standards. This means doubts of whether this can truly be used are over.
Earlier, the Philippine government is endorsing jatropha as a source of biofuel. However, Manayaga said Moringa oil is more useful that jatropha. What makes malunggay better than the jatropha is that malunggay is 100 percent usable; all parts are biodegradable. Unlike jatropha, it has a toxic part. Once its oil is extracted, the left-over part becomes a nuclear waste according to the findings.
In your youth, you may have abused your body. At that time, it was resilient and very little affected by the harmful things you subjected it to. Today, however, your body is not as resilient and you will pay more dearly for staying up late and eating whatever you want. Lifestyles today are full of foods and drinks that over-stimulate your senses like sugar, caffeine, nicotine and other intense stimulators. Eventually, unbalanced levels of cortisol will appear, and what will you do then? Fortunately for you, there is a supplement that can act as a stress reliever without turning to harmful substances. This supplement is called Moringa.
Cortisol is a hormone that gives you energy and wakes you up. That means it is certainly not all bad, but cortisol is typically produced as a stress response. Have you ever had a thought that was inherently stressful and felt a surge of energy all through your body? This is the sudden release of cortisol giving you quick energy to deal with your situation. Unfortunately, most situations in modern times that release cortisol are not ones that require you to have a quicker beating heart rate. Over-accumulated stress calls for Moringa, one very effective stress reliever.
The reason why an overproduction of cortisol is bad is because it leads to exhaustion, sleep deprivation, brain dysfunction, and emotional problems. Of course, these only occur over time, but if you are beyond your 20s, you could be at the point in your life where you are losing sleep over nothing simply because you need a stress reliever to reduce the amount of cortisol being produced. That is where Moringa comes into play.
The reason why Moringa works as a stress reliever is because it has very high levels of tryptophan. Have you ever experienced the sleepiness following a turkey dinner? Turkey is famous for its high tryptophan content, which calms body and slows the heart rate, leading to relaxation and rest. When you are experiencing elevated levels of stress, or you simply find it difficult to sleep, you can either eat a filling turkey dinner or pop a Moringa capsule to provide you with the nutrient you need to relax. Plus, this supplement comes with countless other benefits that lead to a healthier body and mind. In a time when people are becoming ill at younger ages, it is never too early to begin taking Moringa supplements.
