Moringa oleifera is a plant that has been praised for its health benefits and medicinal properties for thousands of years and is native to Pakistan, Afghanistan and northern India. It is very rich in healthy antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. It is also known as horseradish tree, drumstick tree, ben oil tree and benzolive tree.
Moringa leaves are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals such as:
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin C
- Riboflavin (B2)
- Vitamin A (from beta-carotene)
So far, scientists have only investigated a fraction of the many reputed health benefits. Some of the more well-known uses of Moringa are for asthma, allergies, diabetes, symptoms of menopause, lowering cholesterol, and protecting against arsenic toxicity, among other benefits.
Most of these positive effects are likely due to the fact that Moringa is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatoryagent acting against free radicals in your body that are associated with chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
In addition to many others, some of these antioxidants include:
- Quercetin: This powerful antioxidant works as an antihistamine and may help lower blood pressure.
- Chlorogenic acid: helps moderate blood sugar levels after meals.
- Isiothiocynates: this is the cause of the anti-inflammatory properties found in Moringa.
