Moringa – The Most Nutritious Plant Ever Discovered

Moringa is use for energy without caffeine, slimming, prevent winkle, develop beautiful skin, prevent anti-aging, aid sleep, strengthen teeth, cure and prevent over 300 illness including diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, stroke and cancers.
The Moringa is the world most powerful natural multi vitamins and antioxidant on earth. It does not contain just one or two vitamins or one or two antioxidant, Moringa Oleifera contains more than 92 nutrients and 46 types of antioxidants. The next closest plant on earth have only 28 nutrients. Moringa have almost all the vitamins found in fruits and vegetables and most in a larger proportions. 36 Anti-Inflammatories, 18 Amino Acids, 9 Essential Amino Acids.
The Moringa Powder have:
25 times Iron of Spinach
17 times Calcium of Milk
15 times Potassium of Banana
10 times Vitamin A of Carrot
9 times Protein of Yogurt
4 times chlorophyll of wheatgrass
58% Vitamin C of Orange (7 times Vitamin C before dehydration)
Wheatgrass is famous for its high Chlorophyll, Moringa have four times more chlorophyll than Wheatgrass, more nutrients, anti oxidant and it is much healthier than Spirulina.
Beautiful Skin
No plant has a greater abundance of Zeatin than the moringa plant. In fact, moringa has several thousand times more zeatin than any other known plant. The human body has approximately 19 million skin cells at any given time. However, 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells die every minute. New skin cells make their way to the upper skin layers as old skin cells flake off and die. With the zeatin contained in moringa, new skin cells grow at a faster rate than old skin cells die. This results in a marked reduction of wrinkles on the face and other parts of the body, and a more youthful skin appearance. 46 antioxidants, as well as another important mineral that has been known for centuries as ‘the beauty mineral’ – sulfur.
Sulfur is the key ingredient in two substances which make up human skin: collagen and keratin. While not all antioxidants are created equal, moringa oleifera leaves contain over 30 antioxidants which are well suited for skin health.
Moringa is one the most powerful slimming agent and it is use by many Spa worldwide for slimming treatment. Moringa have a natural hunger suppressant. It increase and control your metabolism and nourish you with a treasure trove of nutrient, vitamins and antioxidant. Slimming using Moringa do not have the side effect of many others slimming programs that starve you, over exercise or cause severe diarrhea. Moringa is the best program you can use to control your weight lost and it is all natural by mother nature.

Bad Teeth Cause Severe Illness & Death
High Calcium is not enough! You also need MAGNESIUM, MANGANESE, POTASSIUM, BORON & VITAMIN D, all essential for strong bones, teeth and ligaments. Many chronic diseases, perhaps most, are a result of root canal surgery. Dr. Weston A. Price wrote two incisive books covering 1174 pages about his research into human health and dental conditions. Dr. Price learned after thousands of animal studies that a root canal tooth is always infected regardless of it’s appearance and lack of symptoms. When Dr. Price took a root canal tooth out of a patient who had a chronic disease and placed this tooth in an animal the patient became well and the animal developed the same illness the patient had previously suffered from. If the patient had rheumatoid arthritis the animal became afflicted with RA. When the patient had heart disease the animal developed heart disease. The tooth from a patient with kidney disease produced an animal with kidney disease. It is so important to invest in healthy teeth immediately as decay teeth cannot be replace. Implant and filling are often also rejected by our body and can cause bacterial infection and death in the long term. 

Everyone should take Moringa today. Health of your teeth will determine how many healthy years you have in your life. You should not wait till your teeth decay before you start taking Moringa.
In many develop countries with high rise apartment, Moringa is slowly being forgotten. Many people did not even know they have been taking Moringa all their live. They just eat them because family or grandmother cooks them. Many people also found one Moringa plant in their house garden and did not know why they were there. Moringa have a history of over 4,000 years, Ancient Egyptians uses Moringa. The Greeks found many healthful uses for Moringa and introduced it to the Romans. Over the centuries, the Moringa plant has been carried to all the tropical parts of the world, where it readily takes root. It is commonly used for food, for medicinal purposes. It spread eastward form India to the lower parts of China, Southeast Asia and the Philippines. From India it also spread westward to Egypt, the Horn of Africa, around the Mediterranean, and finally to West Indies in America.
There are over 200 million people currently taking Moringa. Interviews have shown that many 90 years old who takes Moringa are Healthy.
Energize And Healthy
The moringa with all its precious 92 nutrients, 46 antioxidants and list of amino acid will keep your kidney, lung, liver in top form. Keep you beautiful, full of energy and feeling great everyday yet help you sleep well and relax with Nebedaye. It will extended your quality of health and gives you many many more healthy years in your life.
Energy And Alertness
The common solution is stimulants like caffeine or “energy drinks” that are packed with sugar. These products can make you feel jittery while they’re in your system and make you crash and feel even more drained once they wear off.
If you’re looking for a safe, natural way to improve your energy for the long term — not just a few hours — look no further than the superfood moringa oleifera. The doctor himself, Dr. Mehmet Oz, sang the praises of this plant on the April 12 episode of “Dr. Oz,” screen worldwide as a natural solution for anyone having trouble getting moving in the morning and staying productive and focused all day. This plant is rich in minerals like iron, calcium and potassium as well as vitamins A and C. In fact, moringa oleifera has more calcium than milk, more vitamin C than oranges and more iron than spinach, our go-to green. It’s also loaded with phytochemicals like rhamnose and antioxidants, which are our body’s best friend for fighting off infection and illness caused by free radicals.
The result of all these great components is a laundry list of health benefits, starting with boosting your energy. These vitamins, minerals and enzymes keep your body balanced to trigger natural energy production. Moringa oleifera strengthens your immune system, protects your heart and improves cognitive function — it can even improve your mood. Taking it daily can also support healthy skin that is clear and smooth.
Energy and Muscle Growth 
While athletes love Moringa for the boost in energy and it provides the immune system, there are other reasons they are such big fans of this incredibly nutritious super food.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle tissue. They also play a major role in physiological processes relating to our energy, recovery, muscle and strength gain, and aid in weight loss. There are 23 amino acids of which eight are considered essential–tryptophan, lysine, methionine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, threonine, and phenylalanine. These are the basis for the construction of new muscle and must be obtained from our nutritional intake.
All natural Moringa, consumed in powdered form, is know for its energy-creating properties and contains all of the amino acids needed to promote muscle growth, including isoleucine and leucine, which are known to promote energy and enhance mental alertness, valine, which is needed for muscle metabolism and tissue repair, and arginine which stimulates muscle development.
Strenuous exercise can lead to breakdown of muscle tissue for use as an energy source, in a process known as gluconeogenesis. If not checked, this can lead to muscle shrinkage and injury. Free radicals can also stimulate the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which further inhibit the activity of growth hormones. One way to counteract this is by consuming a product such as Moringa, which contain antioxidants andanti-inflammatory bio-nutrients. These protect the body after an intense workout and reduce inflammation to promote healing.
Moringa’s use as an antibiotic in traditional medicine dates back thousands of years, while scientific evidence of it has been in existence since the late 1940’s. Scientists have identified Pterygospermin as the active compound in moringa that causes its antibacterial action. Pterygospermin, once consumed, breaks down into two separate benzyl isothiocyanate, a substance with known antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown that moringa leaf juice can be particularly effective against the Pseudononas aeruginosa bacterium, which can cause diseases in both animals and humans. This bacterium usually infects people with damaged exposed tissues or a weakened immune system, oftentimes manifesting itself through inflammation. In severe cases, the bacteria can take hold in the major organs such as the lungs, kidneys, or the urinary tract, with potentially fatal consequences. Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium more commonly known as the cause of staph infections, which usually manifest as a skin infection. It was found that moringa was just as effective as the commercial antibiotic Neomycin in getting rid of the infection.
Moringa for sleep and relaxation
Moringa acts as a great natural sleeping aid because it contains the unique natural compound known as Nebedaye, which can be found in the leaves. Nebedaye sets several of the body’s key conditions for a fitful night’s rest. It lowers our blood sugar levels, soothes our digestive system, and has a depressive effect on our central nervous system, acting as a muscle relaxant. When our muscles relax, it not only dissipates our tension, but also results in less constriction of our blood vessels. This results in lower blood pressure, which also helps to make sleep that much more restful. Moringa also helps you stay asleep for much longer. In one scientific study, it was shown that subject who consumed moringa could stay asleep for up to twice as long as subjects that did not consume any moringa. This makes it useful for those people who wish to stay in a long blissful slumber. On the other hand, the enhanced relaxation and deeper sleep will allow people with a limited number of allotted sleeping hours to awaken more refreshed and energized than they normally would. Moringa’s ability to relax muscles can come in handy not just for people looking for a good night’s sleep, but for those who are suffering from muscle pains and spasms as well. This can be especially beneficial for athletes, people recovering from injuries, and those who suffer from certain muscular conditions. These properties also help make moringa a safe and effective diuretic.

Dr. Lowell Fuglie, West Africa director of Church World Service (a relief ministry that partners with indigenous organizations in more than 80 countries), asserts that Moringa is yielding four times more benefit to undernourished people than other dietary aids. The people in West Africa aren’t just ingesting Moringa leaves-they’re also using Moringa seeds as an effective yet inexpensive, chemical-free way to purify their drinking water.

Church World Service is just one among many relief organizations that promotes the use of Moringa in impoverished areas. Trees for Life, an organization based in Kansas, is another, sponsoring cultivation programs in India intent on incorporating Moringa into the local diet.

In addition, the Andrew Mellon Foundation, National Geographic Society, and the National Science Foundation and others have contributed funding to track down and collect all 13 Moringa species.

These organizations have done their homework: they’ve seen the scientific studies, and they’re seeing firsthand the difference Moringa can make in the health of individuals all over the world. It’s making great strides against hunger and malnutrition-related childhood blindness, as well as infant mortality in underdeveloped nations. Moringa is even being used to nourish AIDS patients as they wait for a cure.


Moringa tree (also known as the horseradish tree, drumstick tree, benzolive tree, kelor, marango, mlonge, moonga, mulangay, nébéday, saijhan, sajna or Ben oil tree), was utilized by the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians; it is now widely cultivated and has become naturalized in many locations in the tropics. Called “Malunggay” in the Philippines, “Sajina” in the Indian Subcontinent, and “Moringa” in English. Moringa is not your ordinary green leafy vegetables. According to Dr. Lydia M. Marero of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines, Moringa oleiferaLamk is one of the world’s most useful plants. It is used as food, effective flocculant or water treatment, antibiotic, source of oil, and coagulant for turbid waters. It is also called mother’s best friend, and miracle vegetable by many who know Moringa‘s beneficial uses. It is cultivated in all countries of the tropics. It is easy to plant and is available year-round.

Natural benefits from Moringa:
– Nourishes body’s immune system
– Promotes healthy circulation
– Supports normal blood glucose levels
– Natural anti-aging benefits
– Anti-Inflammatory support
– Promotes healthy digestion
– Heightens mental clarity
– Naturally increases energy
Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers. A large number of reports on the nutritional qualities of Moringa now exist in both the scientific and the popular literature. Leaves can be eaten fresh, cooked, or stored as dried powder for many months without refrigeration, and reportedly without loss of nutritional value. 

Health nutritionists claim that an ounce of mor has the same Vitamin C content as seven oranges. An important function of vitamin C not known to many is its being an antioxidant. In fact, it has been recognized and accepted by the US Food and Drug Administration as one of the four dietary antioxidants, the others being vitamin E, beta-carotene and selenium. (A dietary oxidant is a substance in food that significantly decreases the adverse effects of harmful chemicals). Oral histories recorded by Lowell Fuglie in Senegal and throughout West Africa, who reports (and has extensively documented on video) countless instances of lifesaving nutritional rescue that are attributed to Moringa.

There are various parts of the moringa plant which are being used for health reasons. For one, the leaves of this plant proved to be a good source of calcium, iron, ascorbic acid and phosphorus. Its other parts such as the seeds, the young pods, and the flowers have been established to benefit individuals as far as anti-oxidant, anti-diabetic, circulatory stimulations, and such other activities that are most beneficial to mankind, are concerned. There have been claims that moringa can be used to lower blood pressure, aid in pains caused by rheumatism, headaches and migraines, as well as its being an anti-tumor plant. Moringa is also used for purgative and anti-fungal purposes, as well. All these prove the claim that this plant is indeed multi-purpose.

Findings of a study made in India, which were used as the basis of many news reports on Moringa as a wonder plant, states that moringa contains anti-cancer compounds (phytochemicals) that help stop the growth of cancer cells. Moringa is said to be effective in treating ovarian cancer, among a host of other diseases like arthritis, anemia, heart complications, kidney problems, scurvy, asthma, and digestive disorders (ulcer, gastritis, diarrhea, colitis, dysentery).

Moringa has been observed by scientists to contain unique compounds and enact mechanisms that help purge the liver of these toxins and even reverse the damage that they cause. Silymarin is a flavonoid or specialized molecule found in moringa that has been shown to help reduce the effects of hepatoxins on the liver, improving its resiliency. It also protects the liver from the toxic effects of rare earth metal salts such as praseodymium, cerium, and indium, which are known to cause the degeneration of the liver. Scientists theorize that moringa somehow causes the body to get rid of these poisonous compounds in a more rapid manner. This same mechanism also helps make moringa effective against several known poisonous compounds such as a-amanitin and phalloidin. Moringa prevents such toxic cell damage from occurring in two ways. First, it somehow alters the composition of our cell membranes, which only allow a small amount of toxin to seep into our cells. Secondly, the same cell regeneration mechanisms that moringa employs to reduce aging also ensures that there is a large number of healthy cells to replace those that do succumb to the toxins.

Moringa has also been observed to be an effective treatment against a wide array of liver diseases, such as both chronic and acute hepatitiscirrhosis of the liver, fatty degeneration of the liver, and the metabolic liver disease brought about by alcohol and drug use. This is because moringa not only stops the toxicity that causes these diseases, but also helps reverse it. On its own, the liver is a very resilient organ, able to regenerate its cells and grow back even after over half of it is destroyed or removed. Moringa accelerates this regeneration process by about four times the normal speed, eventually helping the liver regain full functionality.  

Moringa Studies
• Moringa preparations have been cited often in scientific literature as antibiotic, antiinflammatory, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic. However, many of the reports are not placebo-controlled randomized clinical trials.
• Antiinflammatory / Anti-tumor: Anti-inflammtory and Antitumor Activities of Seeds Extracts of Moringa—A study showed the crude ethanol extract of dried seeds inhibited the carrageenan-induced inflammation in the hind paw of mice by 85% at a dosage of 3 mg/g body weight;  the mature green seeds by 77%. The crude ethanol extract also inhibited the formation of Epstein-Barr virus-early antigen (EBV-EA) induced by 12-0-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). At a dosage of 100 ?g/ml, the extract inhibited EBV-EA formation by 100% suggesting its antitumor-promoting activity. <Abstract:>
• Cancer: Possible Role of Moringa oleifera Lam. Root in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer: Study suggests a role for M Oleifera, shown to interfere with cytokine pathways.
• Asthma: Antiasthmatic activity of Moringa oleifera Lam: A clinical study: Study showed improvement in forced vital capacity, FEV1, and peak expiratory flow rate. It suggests a usefulness for MO seed kernel in patients with asthma.
• Antibiotic: 50 years ago, a study yielded Pterygospermin, a compound that readily dissociates into two molecules of benzyl isothiocyanate which has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. Unfortunately, many of the reports of antibiotic efficacy in humans were not from placebo controlled, randomized clinical trials. Recent studies have demonstrated possible efficacy against H. pylori.
• Hormonal properties / Abortifacient: Biochemical observations and histologic findings have been correlated with the anti-implantation action of aequous extracts, one possible explanation for its use as an abortifacient. source
• Antiurolithiatic: Study showed lowering of stone forming constituents in the kidneys of calculogenic rats with the use of aqueous and alcoholic extracts of MO suggesting antiurolithiatic activity.
• Antimicrobial / Water Purifyiing: Study of MO seeds paste for water purification yielded a steroidal glycoside, strophantidin, a bioactive agent in the seed. The seed paste was found effective in clarification and sedimentation of inorganic and organic matter in raw water, reducing total microbial and coliform counts by 55% and 65% respectively, in 24 hours, compared to alum with 65% and 83% reduction.
• Antipyretic / Wound Healing: Study of the ethanolic and ethyl acetate extracts of MO showed significant antipyretic activity in rats; the ethyl acetate extract of dried leaves showed significant wound healing on rat wound models.
• Analgeic: Previous studies have shown analgesic activity from the leaves of MO. This study on the alcoholic extract of MO seeds showed potent analgesic activity comparable to that of aspirin dose of 25 mg/kg BW.
• Hepatoprotective / Antioxidant: Study concluded that the alcoholic extracts of MO produced significant hepatoprotective and antioxidant activity, the aqueous extracts of the fruit less than the alcoholic extract.
Sometimes, people think that solutions to their problems are expensive and hard to find.  But more often than not, real solutions to basic problems are abundant, cheap and even free.  Health problems are especially solvable with natural inexpensive gifts from nature. Moringa, for example, is a wonderful blessing for us all.  Locally, it is called Moringa and is easily available everywhere.  Unfortunately, it is little appreciated by many Filipinos.  Today, I would like to share with the good news about Moringa, as written by Mark Fritz of the Los Angeles Times.“Scientifically speaking, Moringa sounds like magic.  It can rebuild weak bones, enrich anemic blood and enable a malnourished mother to nurse her starving baby.  Ounce for ounce, it has the calcium of four glasses of milk, the vitamin C of seven oranges and the potassium of three bananas.
 “A dash of Moringa can make dirty water drinkable.  Doctors use it to treat diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India.  Not only can it staunch a skin infection, but Moringa also makes an excellent fuel and fertilizer.
The Moringa plant is also a proven water purifier with its remarkable antiparasitic, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Its seeds can be used to clean dirty or polluted water.
So, basically, having Moringa trees planted in your garden is like having your ready pharmacy that offers free medicines in your own backyard. (Note: If you want to know how to plant and harvest a Moringa tree, click here. Two American volunteer workers, who are part of the Moringa Project in an African community, show you how it’s done in this video.)

Hawaii-based farmer Vicky Domingo, who has been planting Moringa trees for more than 25 years now, reportedly harvests Moringa twice a week all year round. She says that all parts of the Moringa tree are usable for nutritional and medicinal purposes — from the roots, trunk, and branches to the leaves, flowers, and seeds. The roots, for instance, can be used to make tea, while the trunk, after it’s scraped and squeezed for its juice, can be used to clean wounds.

Fritz also reports on the positive results of using Moringa as a substitute for expensive whole milk powder in nutrition projects. The Moringa packed with amino acids which are highly absorbable and absolutely crucial to good health. The human body is capable of manufacturing only 12 of the 20 different amino acids needed to build proteins used to grow, repair, and maintain cells. The other eight essential amino acids must come from a person’s diet. 

Complete range of naturally occurring amino acids found in Moringa and a brief explanation of why our bodies require them.

ISOLEUCINE builds proteins and enzymes and it provides ingredients used to create other essential biochemical components in your body, some of which promote energy and stimulate the brain to keep you alert.
LEUCINE works with isoleucine to build proteins and enzymes which enhance your body’s energy and alertness.
LYSINE insures your body absorbs the right amount of calcium. It also helps form collagen used in your bone cartilage and connective tissues. And lysine aids in the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. Recent studies have shown lysine improves the balance of nutrients that reduce viral growth.
METHIONINE primarily supplies sulfur to your body. It is known to prevent hair, skin, and nail problems while lowering cholesterol levels as it increases your liver’s production of lecithin. Methionine reduces liver fat and protects the kidneys, which reduces bladder irritation.
PHENYLALAINE produces the chemical needed to transmit signals between your nerve cells and your brain. It can help keep you alert, reduce your hunger pains, plus improve your memory and your mood.
THREONINE is an important part of collagen, elastin,and enamel proteins. Not only does it assist metabolism, threonine helps prevent fat build-up in the liver while boosting your body’s digestive and intestinal tracts.
TRYPTOHYAN supports your immune system, alleviates insomnia, reduces anxiety, depression, and the symptoms of migraine headaches. It also is beneficial in decreasing the risk of artery and heart spasms as it works with lysine to reduce cholesterol levels.
VALINE is important in promoting a sharp mind, coordinated muscles, and a calm mood. These non-essential amino acids, which can be manufactured by your body with the help of proper nutrition, are also found abundantly in Moringa:
ALANINE is important when it comes to building energy in your muscle tissue, brain, and central nervous system. It strengthens your immune system by producing antibodies.
Alanine also helps in the healthy metabolism of sugars and organic acids in your body.
ARGININE has been shown in studies to cause the release of the growth hormones considered crucial for optimal muscle growth and tissue repair. It also improves immune responses to bacteria, viruses, and tumor cells while promoting the healing of your body’s wounds.
ASPARTIC ACID helps rid your body of ammonia created by cellular waste. When the ammonia enters your circulatory system it can act as a highly toxic substance which can damage your central nervous system. Recent studies have also shown that aspartic acid may decrease fatigue and increase endurance.
CYSTINE functions as an antioxidant and is a powerful aid to the body in protecting against radiation and pollution. It can help slow the aging process, deactivate free radicals, and neutralize toxins. It also aids in protein synthesis and presents cellular change. It is necessary for the formation of new skin cells, which aids in the recovery from burns and surgical operations.
Moringa tree (also known as the horseradish tree, drumstick tree, benzolive tree, kelor, marango, mlonge, moonga, mulangay, nébéday, saijhan, sajna or Ben oil tree), was utilized by the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians; it is now widely cultivated and has become naturalized in many locations in the tropics. Called “Malunggay” in the Philippines, “Sajina” in the Indian Subcontinent, and “Moringa” in English.GLUTAMIC ACID is food for the brain. It improves mental capacities, helps speed the healing of ulcers, reduces fatigue, and curbs your sugar cravings.
GLYCINE promotes the release of oxygen required in the cell-making process. It is also important in the manufacturing of hormones responsible for strong immune system.
HISTIDINE is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, ulcers, and anemia. A lack of histidine may leadto poor hearing.
SERINE is important in storing glucose in the liver and muscles. Its antibodies help strengthen your body’s immune system. Plus, it synthesizes fatty acid sheaths around nerve fibers.
PROLINE is extremely important for the proper function of your joints and tendons.It also helps maintain and strengthen heart muscles.
TRYROSINE transmits nerve impulses to your brain. It helps overcome depression; improves memory; increases mental alertness; plus promotes the healthy functioning of the thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands.
Moringa oleifera: A Review of the Medical Evidence for Its Nutritional, Therapeutic, and Prophylactic Properties   Cancer Prevention. Since Moringa species have long been recognized by folk medicine practitioners as having value in tumor therapy (61), we examined compounds [1] and [2] for their cancer preventive potential (39). Recently, [1] and the related compound [3] were shown to be potent inhibitors of phorbol ester (TPA)-induced Epstein-Barr virus early antigen activation in lymphoblastoid (Burkitt’s lymphoma) cells (57,104). In one of these studies, [3] also inhibited tumor promotion in a mouse two-stage DMBA-TPA tumor model (104). In an even more recent study, Bharali and colleagues have examined skin tumor prevention following ingestion of drumstick (Moringa seedpod) extracts (12). In this mouse model, which included appropriate positive and negative controls, a dramatic reduction in skin papillomas was demonstrated. references
 Experts agree that the long-term solution to malnutrition is the use of foods rich in the essential nutrients often lacking in people’s diets. Modern scientific research is proving that Moringa leaves are one of the richest sources of such nutrients. 

Ann Hirsch, PhD – “One of the things that impresses me most about Moringa is the fact that it has the full complement of the essential amino acids that humans beings need-there are eight of them that we cannot synthesize, so we have to get them from our food.” — Ann Hirsch, PhD, Professor of Botany at University of California Los Angeles

(drumstick) against anti tubercular drug induced lipid peroxidation in rats.Ashok Kumar N, Pari L.Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar-608 002, Tamil Nadu, India.The protective effect of Moringa oleifera Lam. (Moringaceae) on hepatic marker enzymes, lipid peroxidation, and antioxidants was investigated during antitubercular drug (isoniazid, rifampicin, and pyrazinamide)-induced toxicity in rats. Enhanced hepatic marker enzymes and lipid peroxidation of antitubercular drug treatment was accompanied by a significant decrease in the levels of vitamin C, reduced glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and glutathione S-transferase. Administration of Moringa oleifera extract and silymarin significantly decreased hepatic marker enzymes and lipid peroxidation with a simultaneous increase in the level of antioxidants. We speculate that Moringa oleifera extract exerts its protective effects by decreasing liver lipid peroxides and enhancing antioxidants.

We have evaluated the hepatoprotective effect of an ethanolic extract of M. oleifera leaves on liver damage induced by antitubercular drugs such as isoniazid (INH), rifampicin (RMP), and pyrazinamide (PZA) in rats. Oral administration of the extract showed a significant protective action made evident by its effect on the levels of glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (aspartate aminotransferase), glutamic pyruvic transaminase (alanine aminotransferase), alkaline phosphatase, and bilirubin in the serum; lipids, and lipid peroxidation levels in liver. This observation was supplemented by histopathological examination of liver sections. The results of this study showed that treatment with M. oleifera extracts or silymarin (as a reference) appears to enhance the recovery from hepatic damage induced by antitubercular drugs.

University of Baroda, Kalabhavan, Gujarat, India. Rabbits were fed Moringa oleifera (200mg/kg/day, p.o.) or lovastatin (6mg/kg/day, p.o.) in banana pulp along with standard laboratory diet and hypercholesterolaemic diet for 120 days. Moringa oleifera and lovastatin were found to lower the serum cholesterol, phospholipid, triglyceride, VLDL, LDL, cholesterol to phospholipid ratio and atherogenic index, but were found to increase the HDL ratio (HDL/HDL-total cholesterol) as compared to the corresponding control groups. Treatment with M. oleifera or lovastatin in normal rabbits decreased the HDL levels. However, HDL levels were significantly increased or decreased in M. oleifera- or lovastatin-treated hypercholesterolaemic rabbits, respectively. Lovastatin- or M. oleifera-treated hypercholesterolaemic rabbits showed decrease in lipid profile of liver, heart and aorta while similar treatment of normal animals did not produce significant reduction in heart. Moringa oleifera was found to increase the excretion of faecal cholesterol. Thus, the study demonstrates that M. oleifera possesses a hypolipidaemic effect.
 Hypocholesterolemic effects of crude extract of leaf of Moringa oleifera Lam in high-fat diet fed wistar rats.Ghasi S, Nwobodo E, Ofili JO.
Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, College of Medicine, University of Nigeria, Enugu. The leaves of Moringa oleifera Lam (Moringaceae) are used by the Indians in their herbal medicine as a hypocholesterolemic agent in obese patients. The scientific basis for their use in hypercholesterolemia was therefore examined. It was found that administration of the crude leaf extract of Moringa oleifera along with high-fat diet decreased the high-fat diet-induced increases in serum, liver, and kidney cholesterol levels by 14.35% (115-103.2 mg/100 ml of serum), 6.40% (9.4-8.8 mg/g wet weight) and 11.09% (1.09-0.97 mg/g wet weight) respectively. The effect on the serum cholesterol was statistically significant. No significant effect on serum total protein was observed. However, the crude extract increased serum albumin by 15.22% (46-53 g/l). This value was also found to be statistically significant. It was concluded that the leaves of Moringa oleifera have definite hypocholesterolemic activity and that there is valid pharmacological basis for employing them for this purpose in India.   Moringa Research

Lyme Disease and Moringa Oleifera

moringaBy Dr. Howard W. Fisher

Perhaps we are being affected by this new plague because of our current immune system status. “Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the depleted soils from which our foods come are brought into proper mineral balance?” Our immune systems require a number of nutrients for optimal function. Moringa oleifera is capable of delivering what the body needs and these enzymatically active amino acid sequences may simply not exist in the food chain anywhere else, and that is just the tip of the nutritional iceberg when it comes to Moringa oleifera.

Moringa oleifera is an anti-pyretic, anti-inflammatory, and possesses a broad spectrum of anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and antibiotic abilities, which will certainly lighten the load on the immune system. A Moringa oleifera dietary protocol makes perfect sense to combat the ravages of Lyme disease. Renowned Moringa researcher, Lowell Fuglie, outlines the ability of Moringa to reduce swelling, reduce joint pain, arthritic pain, and a host of anti-bacterial, antibiotic functions that would vault this miracle tree into the category of a virtual panacea, especially where Lyme disease is concerned. This disorder is of particular interest to me because a very close personal friend had been ravaged by Lyme Disease for almost a decade and through the nutrition of Moringa oleifera, her body has fought off this spirochete and she is on the road to total recovery in only a few months.

Facts & Findings with Dr. Plant: Not All Moringa is Created Equal

Dr. Plant discusses the five key points that are critical in ensuring the highest possible quality of Moringa.

FactsFindingDrPlant1) Species:
There are 13 different species of the Moringa genus; each specie differs widely in its nutritional content and value. Moringa oleifera, is claimed to be the most nutritiously dense through numerous scientific publications.

2) Sourcing:
Additional to Moringa oleifera being the most nutritiously dense of all the Moringa genus, Moringa oleifera’s nutritional value also depends on where it is grown, and when it is harvested. Several studies, including thesis work from prominent universities, have shown this. Look for a company that sources their Moringa oleifera from India near the base of the Himalayas, numerous data points to this as the ideal location for maximizing Moringa’s nutritional impact.

3) Preparation:
There are several ways in preparing Moringa oleifera for consumption. The most nutritiously advantageous way is to shade dry the Moringa leaves, this helps to naturally preserve and enrich for Moringa’s inherent nutrition. The second, and much more common way, is to dry the Moringa in the sun. Though cheaper and quicker the ultra-violet radiation from the sun can crosslink the nutrients rendering them inert for physiological benefit.

4) Blend:
Moringa oleifera is a tree, and with that the nutritional power of the Moringa’s nutrition is found in different parts of the tree. For example, the leaves are enriched in amino acids, while the seeds are enriched in the essential fatty acids, and finally the fruit contains the powerful minerals critical for cell-to-cell communication. To maximize the nutritional power of Moringa oleifera, one must look to these three components.

5) Manufacturing:
Manufacturing can create havoc on natural products. It is often in this step that many natural botanicals lose their effectiveness. To overcome these challenges one must look to a company whose manufacturing is NSF certified, thereby giving greater confidence that they are adhering to practices that allow for quality found throughout the manufacturing process.

Moringa Antioxidants, Telomeres, and Aging

By Dr. Howard W. Fishertelomeres

As an anti-aging physician, awareness of the factors that will decrease the length or quality of life is necessary knowledge in order to determine which actions may be able to intervene in this damage. The negative effects of oxygen can be witnessed throughout the realm of biological interactions and yet it is the most essential element for life. Cells can last no more than four and a half minutes without oxygen as it leads to cellular death however it is essential for the production of energy in mitochondria. Combine this with toxins prevalent in our air, food and water accumulating in our bodies and add to it the further discovery that a great deal of the damage (disease and aging) was being carried out by free radicals (oxidants) in our system… [please read rest of this article complete with references]
