Moringa Leaves contain more nutrients and natural remedies than any other leaves! Ancient warriors used the leave extract to give them more stamina and strength. David Wolfe, author of  Superfoods says: moringa leaves contain 3.5 times the calcium of milk and 4 times the calcium found in oranges.

A recent analysis found that it contains more vitamin A than carrots, more iron than spinach, and more potassium than bananas. Not only this, but it also contains protein as much as found in an egg or milk.

PolyTune 2 – A Closer Look


Polyphonic Perfection
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ll know this. With PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning! It really is as simple as strum – tune – rock! This way, you spend minimum time tuning and maximum time doing what you love the most – playing.
And They Thought Einstein Was Bright!
You ain’t seen nothing yet! The display on PolyTune 2 is primed with some of the brightest LEDs you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Remember when some tuners were really good for daytime gigs, and others excelled in dark clubs? With PolyTune 2, you get an instant clear overview, no matter what the situation. And the ambient light sensor makes sure you get just the right amount of brightness. Every time. It’s truly amazing how bright they get, so don’t come complaining if planets want to orbit your pedalboard.
The Strobe Is Strong With This One
The original PolyTune was best in class when it came to precision. Great – but why stop there? We’ve received many requests from the guitar community to add a strobe tuner – a decision we’d been debating internally as well. So let there be strobe! For fine-tuning your precious gear and giving it the care and attention it deserves, to super accurate tuning in the studio or by a roadie on stage. This strobe tuner is lightning fast and ultra precise. But how precise is it? Well, let’s just say if you tune and then put your pick on the fret-board – you’re going to see the difference (we’re not even joking).yTune was best-in-class when it came to precision.
