6 proven benefits of Moringa
Moringa has over 100 names in different languages ​​of the world. The plant, which grows especially in the Himalayas as well as in certain areas of India and Africa, has over 90 protective compounds including isothiocyanate, flavonoids and phenolic acid.

Moringa has a reputation for fighting inflammation and combating the various effects of malnutrition and aging, earning it its reputation as a "miracle herb."

Here are the six best-known benefits of moringa.


1. Contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds
One of the reasons why plants like Moringa oleifera are so impressive is their ability to produce results similar to regular drugs, but without causing their side effects. According to a report published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention, moringa contains a combination of essential amino acids, phytonutrients, carotenoids (similar to those found in carrots and tomatoes), antioxidants such as quercitin and natural antibacterial compounds that act in the same way as regular anti-inflammatory pills. .

Moringa leaves are rich in anti-aging compounds including polyphenols, vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercitin and chlorogenic acid, which reduce the effects of oxidative stress and inflammation. These substances are associated with a reduced risk of developing chronic diseases such as stomach, lung or colon cancer; hypertension; diabetes; decrease in visual acuity caused by aging.


2. It balances hormones and slows down the effects of aging
A study published in 2014 in the Journal of Food Science and Technology attested the effects of Moringa and amaranth leaves (Amaranthus tricolor) on the level of inflammation and oxidative stress in menopausal women. It is known that the levels of antioxidant enzymes are affected during the postmenopausal period due to the deficiency of the so-called "hormones of youth", such as estrogen, so scientists wanted to investigate whether these foods can help slow down the effects of aging, by rebalancing the natural of hormones due to natural antioxidants from plants.

90% of postmenopausal women between the ages of 45 and 60 were selected and divided into three groups, each group receiving a certain number of supplements. The levels of different antioxidants were analyzed before and after receiving the supplements, as well as blood glucose and hemoglobin levels. The results showed that Moringa and amaranth supplements caused a significant increase in antioxidants in the body, but also a significant decrease in markers of oxidative stress.

Better control of blood glucose levels and a positive increase in hemoglobin levels were also noted. Something that made scientists conclude that these plants have therapeutic potential in preventing complications caused by aging and hormonal imbalance. Also, Moringa positively influences the libido and at the same time can have a contraceptive effect, according to some studies.

For thousands of years Moringa has been used as a natural aphrodisiac to increase sexual desire and performance and, at the same time, to reduce it's conception. Moreover, the plant improves the functioning of the immune system, and during pregnancy, moringa increases breast milk production, according to the same studies.


3. It helps to improve digestive health
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Moringa has been used in ancient systems of medicine such as Ayurveda to prevent or treat stomach ulcers, liver diseases, kidney diseases, fungal infections (such as candida), digestive problems.

Moringa oil is used to improve the functions of the liver and, above all, to detoxify the body and eliminate toxic substances, such as heavy metals. Moreover, Moringa is also used against kidney stones, urinary tract infections, constipation, fluid retention and diarrhea.


4. It balances the level of sugar in the blood, thus helping in the case of diabetes
Moringa contains chlorogenic acid, which, according to studies, helps keep blood sugar levels under control and allows cells to attract or release glucose depending on the body's needs. This ability turns moringa into a natural antidiabetic with hormone balancing properties. In addition, moringa also contains isothiocyanates that are closely related to the body's natural protection against diabetes.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Food Science Technology, Moringa has positive effects on blood glucose control, but also on insulin levels in patients with diabetes who consumed a product rich in carbohydrates. The effects of three different plants (Moringa, curry and bitter cucumber) were tested in diabetics who ate various foods with different sugar content. The results showed that the insulin response was significantly lower when any of the three plants were included in the diet.

Other studies carried out at the Biotechnology Institute of Sadat University in Egypt have discovered the anti-diabetic properties of Moringa seed powder (the dose being 500 milligrams per kilogram of body). Thus, taken in small doses, the powder increased the level of antioxidants in the body and helped to increase the production of enzymes in the liver, pancreas and kidneys, according to studies carried out on guinea pigs.

High levels of immunoglobulin (IgA, IgG), rapid rise in glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) – 3 important markers seen in diabetes – were reduced in diabetic guinea pigs given Moringa. In general, it was observed that the mice that received Moringa experienced significant improvements in the health of the kidneys and pancreas, as well as a reduction in complications caused by diabetes.


5. Protects and nourishes the skin
Moringa has natural antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral compounds that protect the skin from various forms of infection. The most common uses of moringa in the treatment of skin include: reducing fungal infections (athlete's foot/athlete's foot), eliminating unpleasant odor, reducing inflammation associated with acne, treating pus pockets and abscesses, eliminating dandruff, treating gingivitis and speeding up the healing of stings of insects, burns, viral warts, as well as open wounds.

Also, moringa oil is an ingredient used in the food and perfume industry because it destroys bacteria while also having a pleasant smell.
