The highly acclaimed Moringa tree plant has gained popularity as a new superfood because of its highly nutritious profile and powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tissue-protective properties. Super Yay!!!
Moringa oleifera, also known as horseradish tree, ben tree, or drumstick tree, is a gorgeous medium size tree originally from India, Pakistan, and Nepal and has been used for generations in Eastern countries, super popular in treating and preventing dis-eases such as diabetes, heart disease, anemia, arthritis, liver disease, and respiratory, skin, and digestive disorder, because of its high vibratory properties
Although Moringa has become popular as a leaf powder supplement, the pods, roots, bark, flowers, seeds, and fruits are also edible and highly healing.
It’s used as a traditional remedy for many ailments, and here are 10 (scientifically backed) benefits:
- Super Packed With Yummy Nutrients.
Moringa is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Research found it contains a significant amount of vitamins A, C, and E; Calcium; Potassium; and Protein.
- Good-bye Free Radicals.
Antioxidants fight free radicals, the molecules that cause oxidative stress, cell damage, and inflammation.
This wonderful tree contains antioxidants called flavonoids, polyphenols, and ascorbic acid in the leaves, flowers, and seeds.
Study finds that the Moringa leaf extracts have higher antioxidant activity, free-radical-scavenging capacity, and higher inhibition of lipid, protein, and DNA oxidation than flowers and seeds.
This means it prevents the damage and degradation that free radicals cause in the cells of different organs in the body, keeping them healthy and functioning at their best.
Inflammation can lead to chronic dis-eases like diabetes, respiratory problems, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and obesity. Moringa reduces inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes and proteins in the body, and moringa leaf concentrate significantly lowers inflammation in the cells. Its high frequency green particles assist in elevating the glandular function purifying the blood stream by increasing oxygen production. It promotes lymphatic function and clears excessive mucus membranes.
- Helps reduce some diabetes symptoms.
Moringa leaf (primarily in powder form) has been effective in reducing lipid and glucose levels, regulating oxidative stress in diabetic patients, which means it lowers blood sugar and cholesterol and improves protection against cell damage.
- Cardiovascular System Protection & Stimulation For Excellent Performance.
Moringa leaf has heart-healthy benefits, particularly in blood lipid control, the prevention of plaque formation in the arteries, and to reduce high cholesterol levels.
- It supports brain health.
Moringa supports brain health and cognitive function because of its antioxidant and neuro-enhancer activities. It’s also been tested as a treatment for Alzheimer’s dis-ease with favorable preliminary results.
Its high content of vitamins E and C fight oxidation that leads to neuron degeneration, improving brain function. It’s also able to normalize the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline in the brain, which play a key role in memory, mood, organ function, responses to stimulus such as stress and pleasure, and optimum mental health, for example in conditions like depression, neurosis and psychosis.
- The Liver Protector.
Moringa contains high concentrations of polyphenols in its leaves and flowers that protect the liver against oxidation, toxicity, and damage.
Moringa can reduce liver damage and fibrosis and reverse oxidation in the liver. Moringa oil can also restore liver enzymes to normal levels, reducing oxidative stress, and increasing protein content in the liver.
The liver is responsible for blood detoxification, bile production, fructose metabolism, fat metabolism, and nutrient processing, and it can only fulfill these functions with the aid of liver enzymes, so it’s vital they stay at normal levels. For instance, lower levels of hepatic enzymes can impair its ability to filter the blood.
- Antimicrobial and Antibacterial Properties.
Moringa has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that fight infections. It’s been effective against types of fungi that cause infections on skin and strains of bacteria responsible for blood and urinary tract infections and digestive problems.
- Wound Healing.
Moringa has blood-clotting properties in its leaves, roots, and seeds that enhance wound healing and can reduce clotting time, which means it reduces the time it takes for scratches, cuts, or wounds to stop bleeding.
How to Use It
You can add fresh moringa leaves to your daily salad, its an excellent addition to your greens. Add moringa powder to your smoothie or drink it as a tea. The leaf powder has been deemed safe, even in larger doses than normal. The powder has a mild flavor, so it makes for a light tea with a slightly earthy taste.
But you might want to stay clear of seed extracts, as they have shown a level of toxicity in immune cells.
Moringa can have laxative effects in large quantities, so take a safe dose to introduce it into your diet gradually and avoid digestive problems. Recommended is ½ to 1 teaspoon per day.
