Default 8 Health Benefits of Moringa Oleifera

Moringa Oleifera, drumstick, horseradish tree, ben oil tree, elixir of long life, miracle tree…These names are for one amazing tree from the family Moringaceae. Originally from Asia it has so many health benefits, it is not a coincidence that it has been christened with so many names. The information we intend to highlight about its extract will be a pointer to its various health advantages.

Health Benefit 1: Antioxidant Properties

Moringa oleifera, extracted from the leaves of the tree, is a rich source of anti-oxidant (it has 46 of them). Just one single serving of this tea will supply you with 22% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamin C. The anti-oxidants in moringa oleifera helps ward of free radicals and protects our bodies from degenerative diseases like cystic fibriosis as well as cancerous growth.

Health Benefit 2: Source of amino acids

There are 18 amino acids in Moringa oleifera, out of which 8 are crucial. As a result, this extract is considered a complete protein, rivalling other sources of proteins such as meat. The body requires this protein for repairing damaged muscles, healthy skin, bones as well as manufacture of enzymes and hormones.

Health Benefit 3: Nutrient Rich

Moringa oleifera has both calcium and magnesium minerals. These two minerals function in tandem; calcium aids in building strong teeth and bones while magnesium does the part of aiding the absorption process. There are huge amounts of both nutrients with this extract supplying over 100% of recommended daily consumption of calcium and over 60% of magnesium. Moringa oleifera contains up to 90 other nutrients for example lutein, iodine, fiber, zinc, beta-carotene, to name but a few.

Health Benefit 4: Combats Hypertension

It is not in vain that Moringa oleifera extract is derived from the ‘miracle tree’. The leaves of this tree together with other parts help to lower blood pressure. There are two important substances in Moringa oleifera extract that makes it a great food for fighting high blood pressure: Niacin A1 and A5. It also contains magnesium, potassium, zinc, calcium and vitamin E, all of which promote creation of nitric oxide(NO), hence improving blood flow and tackling high blood pressure effectively.

Health Benefit 5: Helps Manage Fat Gain and Malnutrition

And enhance digestion, it corrects low-moods and combats high calories, thus assisting in managing weight. Were you aware that in Africa, these tree products are used to treat malnutrition?

Health Benefit 5: Anti cancer Properties

Due to the anti-oxidants in moringa oleifera extract, it is able to effectively fight Cancer. The anti-oxidants combat free radicals, to blame for cancerous growth when healthy cells are damaged. These anti-oxidants scavenge on these deadly free radicals, destroying them and reduce risk of cancer attack.

Health Benefit 6: Energy Powerhouse

Moringa oleifera boosts energy in the body more than any other supplements which purport to be energy boosters.

Health Benefit 7: Treats Gastric Ulcers

Moringa oleifera extract has been discovered to positively affect gastric ulcers accessioned by inflammation in the blood capillaries. The anti-oxidants in the extract eradicate free radicals hence providing respite from the ulcers.

Health Benefit 8: Builds Mood

Do you sometimes feel stressed, in a foul mood and so on? Well, Moringa oleifera contains an amino acid known as tryptophan, essential for the production of serotonin hormone as well as niacin. Everyone knows that serotonin is a ‘feel good’ hormone; it uplifts your mood and restores your happiness. The presence of calcium and protein in this extract is a plus as far as building mood is concerned.

I prefer Green-Fu. Its all natural with its Moringa and Organic Green Bean Coffee Extracts.
