THE MORINGA SCIENCE

A myriad of scientific studies about moringa have been conducted around the world by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization on Moringa; the United States Institute of Health (NIH); colleges and universities and several other entities and individuals.

At Super Natural Organic Farms of America, we have been collaborating with Louisiana State University Food Science Department and with several Japanese Universities and the Higher Education Agriculture Research Foundation of Japan.    

In India, tradition maintains that the Moringa tree can cure 300 diseases, and local herbalists make extensive use of Moringa products to treat a host of ailments, including diabetes, ulcers, high blood pressure, pedal edema and kidney pains.

* High-quality oil can be used in cooking and its leaves can be consumed as a tea and as a nutritious substitute for milk. They are an excellent source of protein and iron you won’t find that in many other plants.
* Here’s how it compares with other foods: 7 times the vitamin C of oranges; 4 times the calcium of milk and twice the protein of yogurt. Many other vitamins and minerals are present literally from A to zinc, and all the essential amino acids.
* Can purify polluted water, working as both a coagulant and as an anti-microbial.

Who has Studied Moringa?

Moringa has been one of the most widely studied herbs in the Philippines, India, Africa, Europe and in the USA. Several prominent universities, credible scientific institutions and governmental bodies all over the world have closely examined this amazing plants many benefits for human health. Hundreds of studies can be found on the US National Center for Biotechnology/National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health website–The science really does speak for itself!

These many studies and research papers have been published in renowned medical and scientific journals.  Some of the Universities and Research Institutions That Have Studied Moringa.

The leaves, roots, seeds, bark, fruit, flowers and immature pods of Moringa Oleifera offer cardiac and circulatory stimulants, antitumor, antipyretic (fever reducer), antiepileptic, anti-inflammatory, antiulcer, antispasmodic, diuretic, antihypertensive, cholesterol lowering, antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective (ability to prevent liver damage), antibacterial and antifungal activities.

Top physicians have also been recommending Moringa to their patients, without the harmful side effects associated with other conventional treatments.

Who else has taken interest in Moringa?

There are many organizations that have been interested in Moringa, here is a partial list:

Let’s take a look at what the science says:

Cancer

The pods and seeds of the Moringa tree protect cells from oxidation damage. According to the Journal of Herbal Medicine published by Kumar, Singh and Vasisht (2007), the seeds/pods carry properties against action of free radicals that cause cancer and other damage.

Diabetes

Low levels of vitamin E and D are associated with a higher risk of diabetes. Moringa has been used for centuries by healers in India to treat diabetes. The antioxidants in the leaves and roots have also been used to promote healing of diabetes related lesions. As a rich source of Absorbic Acid, Moringa also aids in insulin secretion. As there are no side effects to Moringa use, it is a safe, natural way to manage blood sugar and alleviate symptoms of diabetes. In addition, as diabetes causes circulatory problems, Moringa has been shown to possess key anti-inflammatory benefits. In one study from the Trinity University of Asia & De La Salle University of Manila, blood sugar levels of Hyperglycemic individuals significantly dropped after 2 hours. A mean drop of 28.15 mg/dl in the blood sugar levels was observed.

Liver Health

Liver protective activity of the Moringa oil (also known as Ben Oil) has been used as part of a therapeutic regime in Hepatic (Hepatitus) disorders. Other parts of the plant have been found to prevent early liver injury due to high fat diets. Significant increase was found in deep tissue antioxidant parameters leading to lower lipid peroxidation in a Batan Island, Phillipines study including life-style related disease and illness as well as the circulatory system.

Kidney Health

The protective qualities in Moringa protect the kidneys from harmful effects by reducing the formation of free radicals. Clinical studies from the University of Ouagadougou and K.L.E.S’s College of Pharmacy show kidney stones will be discharged naturally in 4 ~6 weeks:

Ulcers

Moringa Oleifera root extracts combined with fruit rind (citrus sinensis) extract have been found to be effective in helping those with Ulcerative Colitis, comparable to the pharmaceutical drug Prednisolone. The flower bud of Moringa widely consumed in Pakistan has been reported to possess antiulcer activity against aspirin-induced gastric ulcers in rats (Akhtar & Ahmad, 1995). A clinical study from the University of Calcutta shows that Moringa Oleifera protects against ulcer formation:

Sickle Cell Anemia

Caused by lack of Iron, Moringa Oleifera has been used to supplement this deficiency without the harsh side effects of iron pills due to its ability to increase hemoglobin and build the blood without causing gastrointestinal side effects.

Weight Loss

The 92 nutrients in Moringa can help lower blood sugar by stopping sugars from being turned into new fat cells.  Methionine found in Moringa is known to absorb fat and cholesterol aiding in burning belly fat naturally. The B vitamins in Moringa leaves also help you digest and convert foods to energy and may increase your metabolism. When the body absorbs whole food source vitamins, proteins and fiber without the calories, studies tend to show a weight loss.

Study

Antibiotics

The antibiotic properties in Moringa have been known to inhibit the growth of microorganisms naturally. The seeds of the Moringa plant contain a natural antibiotic that has been used to control infection.

High Blood Pressure

Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Zinc are all essential for the regulation of blood pressure. As Moringa is rich in all these nutrients, it lowers the risk of hypertension by promoting proper blood vessel function. In addition, from Phytotherapy Research (2006) the study published indicated that Moringa leaf extract had a significant effect in reducing blood pressure levels in guinea pigs and rabbits under laboratory conditions. Lowering blood pressure will be confirmed in less than 2 weeks.

HIV & AIDS

Antioxidants have been proven to be helpful after the onset of AIDS symptoms by boosting the immune system. Moringa leaves contain powerful antioxidants that can help delay the complications arising from AIDS. While proper nutrition is essential to maintain health in HIV-positive patients, Moringa offers an essential alternative for areas such as Africa where modern medical facilities are scarce and overcrowded. At the 14th International AIDS Conference in Barcelona in 2002, it was recommended that Moringa powder be considered as an alternative treatment to boost the systems of HIV-positive patients in Africa who would otherwise not receive antiretroviral drugs.

Moringa Seeds

Moringa seeds are among the most versatile and nutritious seeds available. They can be planted and grown, eaten directly for quick energy and used to treat dirty water. Their medicinal, agricultural and water purification uses have been well documented throughout the years.  Moringa oleifera seeds treat water on two levels, acting both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. Studies have shown that filtering water with Moringa seeds not only diminishes water pollution, but removes 90-99% of harmful bacteria and impurities.

Last but certainly not least moringa is like JET FUEL for A MIRACLE HEALTH, however it most be consumed with the advice of a moringa expert to obtain maximum results.  For example, you if you use a car powered with regular gasoline, if you try biodiesel because it is a clean fuel–your car is not going to run, it will not even start, and the same principle will be for Jet Fuel, if you put jet fuel in your car, it is not going to start up or perhaps it will burn.  The same principle applies when using moringa to obtain A MIRACLE HEALTH, your body needs to meet certain conditions and the amounts of moringa or any other nutrient for that matter need to be determined by your Moringa Expert Advisor.
