As stated by the National Center for Biotechnology:
Over a 1,000 studies have been conducted on moringa's benefits for major diseases,
from arthritis, diabetes, heart problems, weight loss, brain function, liver function, kidney function to even special cases of cancer.
Moringa has been stated by the ancient texts from India, The Mahabharata, as a remedy for over known 300 diseases,
Here are the 11 scientifically backed health benefits of moringa oleifera:
#1. Treats Diabetes
Moringa protects against developing type 2 diabetes. Likewise, it may also aid in helping people who already have type 2 diabetes by reducing blood sugars and increasing insulin production or insulin sensitivity.
#2. Protects the Heart
Moringa effectively regulates blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the body; therefore reducing the impact of hypertension and preventing other heart conditions.
#3. Reduces Inflammations
Moringa reduces inflammation that can lead to chronic diseases like diabetes, respiratory problems,
cardiovascular disease, arthritis and obesity.
#4. Fights off Free Radicals
Free radicals are molecules that cause oxidative stress, cell damage and inflammation which can lead to chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
#5 Replenishes Nutritional Deficiencies
Moringa Oleifera is an excellent source of minerals like iron, calcium and vitamins A, B, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E as well as macro minerals, trace minerals and phytonutrients. Besides, it is a good source of quality protein and dietary fiber.
#6 Boosts the Immune System
Moringa helps in stimulating the immune system of the body. It also helps in enhancing the cellular immune response and exerts positive effects on various other immune system values such as total leukocyte count, antibodies and hypersensitivity reactions.
#7 Fights Arthritis and Joint Pain
Moringa can prove to be very useful in arthritis owing to the strong anti-inflammatory, ant-oxidant and analgesic properties of its bio-active components. These properties can tackle some of the key biological processes involved in arthritis development.
#8 Protects the Brain
Moringa Supports brain health and cognitive function because of its antioxidant and neuro-enhancer activities. It has also been tested as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease with favorable preliminary results.
#9 Helps Lose Weight
Moringa also has fat-burning and weight-loss benefits. Moringa is loaded with a potent fat-fighter called chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to reduce body weight and visceral fat mass, It also regulates lipid metabolism.
#10 Boost Energy, Reduces Tiredness and Fatigue
Moringa provides various B vitamins which help your body better absorb its other vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium. More specifically, Vitamin B1 helps your body convert sugar into energy. This is what gives moringa its all-natural energizing properties.
#11 Fights Cancer Cells
Recent findings suggest that leaf extract from moringa oleifera has a strong effect on halting proliferation of human cancer cells and inducing cell death. And as chemotherapy induces severe adverse side affects, naturally occurring anticancer compounds from moringa can be valuable to chemotherapy and chemo-prevention. Thus, moringa leaves have potential for and can be integrated as a therapeutic target for cancer.
