What Are The Health Benefits Of Moringa?

Moringa is replete with important antioxidants that fight oxidative stress and related diseases. The plant can fight inflammation and may aid the treatment of cancer and diabetes. It may also strengthen bones and improve brain health.

1. May Help Prevent Cancer

Moringa root has been found to induce cancer cell death. Though all parts of the moringa plant can help kill cancer cells, the root was found to be the most potent (2).

Moringa also may play a remarkable role in the prevention and treatment of cancers of the breast and colon. Specific compounds in the plant, known as nanocomposites, were found to destroy cancerous cells while sparing the healthy ones (2).

Eugenol (another compound in moringa) was found to prevent cancers of the skin, colon, and prostate (3). The plant prevents the cancer cells from forming colonies in the body. In other words, it inhibits the spread of cancer within the body.

Extracts of moringa may also inhibit cancers of the liver and the lung (4).

2. Can Fight Inflammation

The flavonoids in moringa can help fight inflammation in rats and human cell lines (5), (6). This way, the plant also has a role to play in the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease).

Moringa was also effective in blocking certain cytokines that promote inflammation in the human body. The extracts of moringa seeds also have anti-inflammatory properties (5).

The anti-inflammatory properties of moringa may also help relieve rheumatic pain in rats (7), (8). However, more trials in humans are warranted.

The most potent of the phytochemicals in moringa that fight inflammation include flavonoids and isothiocyanates. Their anti-inflammatory potential is so intense that studies emphasize their cancer prevention ability or their ability to treat inflammatory conditions like diabetes, and arthritis (9).

3. May Aid Diabetes Treatment

In certain rat studies, moringa seed powder was found to exhibit antidiabetic properties. Moringa contains fiber, which can help reduce blood glucose levels. Fortification of a diabetes diet with moringa was found to lower fasting blood glucose levels (10).

In another study, post-menopausal women who took 7 grams of moringa leaf powder every day for three months observed a reduction in their fasting blood glucose levels (11).

Another small study showed that including moringa leaves in the diet may lower blood sugar levels. The participants of the study saw a 21% decrease in blood sugar levels (12).

Treating diabetic rats with moringa seed powder restored the histology of both the kidneys and the pancreas, thereby improving the symptoms. It is possible that these effects could be observed in humans as well (13).

protip_icon Did You Know?
Ancient Ayurvedic medicine suggests that moringa may cure over 300 ailments.

4. May Promote Heart Health

Moringa improved cardiac diastolic functioni  The flow of blood into the lower heart chambers (ventricles) that are responsible for the proper functioning of the heart. in hypertensive rats. It also reduced fibrosis (the scarring of connective tissue) in the left ventricle (14).

Moringa also helps lower cholesterol levels, which can help improve heart health. In a study, the plant was found to increase the excretion of fecal cholesterol (15).

Moringa pods are replete with polyunsaturated fatty acids, including linoleic, linolenic, and oleic acids. These have the ability to lower cholesterol. Moringa seed oil contains 76% PUFAs, and it can be an ideal substitute for olive oil (16).

Moringa leaf extract may also lower blood pressure levels. This extract reduced oxidative stress and relieved vascular dysfunction in hypertensive rats (17). This effect can potentially ward off heart disease.

5. Enhances Digestive Health

Moringa was found to modulate the composition of gut bacteria and offer associated benefits in mice. It has a role to play in treating digestive inflammation and preventing high-fat-induced obesity (18).

Moringa increases the concentrations of Bifidobacteria in the gut in rats, which are the major class of bacteria making up the gastrointestinal microbiota (18).

According to animal studies, moringa may also contain active agents with gastroprotective properties that promote digestive health and enhance the mucus lining of the gut (19).

The plant can also treat and prevent ulcers (19).

6. May Strengthen Bones

Moringa is a good source of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus – nutrients essential for bone health (20). It also contains lysine, an amino acid that promotes calcium absorption (21).

Moringa was found to have a miraculous effect on bone integrity and may prevent osteoporosisi  A bone disease responsible for lowering bone mass and density, leading to fragile bones and increased risk of fractures. (22). Specific flavonoids in moringa may also stimulate osteoblastic cells, which are cells that synthesize bones.

However, there are very few studies stressing the bone-protective properties of moringa. Certain other studies are yet to conclude if intake of moringa actually impacts bone health in a positive way (21).

7. May Promote Brain Health

In animal studies, moringa mitigated neurodegeneration and memory impairment (23). Moringa seemed to work by preventing the reduction of neuronal density, a phenomenon that happens to accelerate with age.

The plant also fights oxidative stress, which is a major cause of cognitive decline (23). Studies conclude that moringa could be used as a medicinal food for the treatment of dementiai  A cognitive syndrome that causes various symptoms, such as memory loss and difficulty in problem-solving. .

The ability of moringa to fight oxidative stress can also protect the brain during a stroke (24).

Moringa extracts, when taken along with certain antidepressants, were also found to aid depression treatment (25). However, make sure you always speak to your health care provider before taking new supplements alongside medication to avoid contraindications.

8. May Help Treat Anemia

Though more research is needed, one study conducted in rats states that moringa can increase blood iron levels, thereby treating anemia (26). This is especially true with moringa leaves, which are iron-rich. The vitamin C in moringa also increases iron absorption in the body.

9. May Improve Liver Health

Moringa has been found to protect the liver against various toxins. It achieves this by lowering excess cholesterol in the liver. In studies, rats with fatty liver were fed with a diet fortified with moringa. They showed decreased levels of triglycerides. This is an indication of a healthy liver (27).

Moringa (and its leaves) may also prevent hepatic steatosis (infiltration of liver cells by fat), as observed in animal studies. It also helps fight liver inflammation (28).

Moringa may also enhance the recovery of the liver from hepatic damage induced by antitubercular drugs (29).

10. May Help Fight Bacterial Infections

Aqueous extracts of moringa had shown to fight bacteria and fungus, thereby inhibiting certain infections (30).

In another study, moringa exhibited antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio cholerae, and Escherichia coli, common antibiotic-resistant pathogens (31).

11. Can Prevent Arsenic Toxicity

Arsenic toxicity is a serious concern. It is more prevalent in areas where water contaminated with arsenic is used for irrigation and cooking (32).

Mice studies show that moringa can offer protective effects against arsenic toxicity (33).

Moringa also displays hepatoprotective properties against arsenic toxicity. The plant achieves this by combating the generation of reactive oxygen species and free radicals (34).

12. May Have Anti-Aging Benefits

This is especially true with moringa leaves. They are also replete with antioxidants like vitamins A, B, and C, which can contribute to skin health (35).

In studies, the use of a facial cream with moringa as the primary ingredient significantly improved the skin elasticity and hydration in the participants (35). The plant also enhanced the division of fibroblasts (cells in the connective tissue that produce collagen and other fibers), thereby promoting skin appearance and texture.

The antioxidants in moringa can also offer anti-aging benefits. They work to protect the skin cells from environmental stressors, including UV radiation. These properties make moringa an ingredient of promise in upcoming anti-aging skin care products (36).

13. May Treat Acne And Other Skin Issues

Thanks to its antifungal properties, moringa may also help treat certain skin diseases (37). Its antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus may help treat pimples, boils, carbuncles, and abscesses.

14. May Aid Weight Loss

Moringa may promote weight loss

The weight loss effects of moringa are not well studied. A small study emphasizes the ability of moringa to prevent weight gain. This effect can be attributed to isothiocyanates, a class of compounds in moringa (38).

More research is warranted pertaining to the ability of moringa to induce weight loss. Hence, consult your doctor before you consume moringa for this purpose.

15. May Help Manage Rheumatoid Arthritis

The unsaturated fatty acids and phytochemicals present in moringa seed oil and leaves exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic properties that may help manage rheumatoid arthritis (39). A study published in Frontiers in Pharmacology found that moringa helps alleviate joint inflammation associated with arthritis (40). However, the mechanism behind this is yet to be studied. Additionally, animal studies suggest that the ethanol extract from moringa leaves exhibits analgesic properties and may help prevent chronic inflammation, joint destruction, and soft tissue damage (41). However, more research done on humans is warranted in this regard.

Anecdotal evidence also suggests that the glucosamine present in moringa may help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis.

protip_icon Trivia

Hence, if you are taking medications/supplements for nutrient deficiency, please check with your doctor before consuming moringa.

  • May Interact With Thyroid Medication

Moringa can have thyroid-like properties (44). Though its interaction with thyroid medication (with hypothyroidism) hasn’t been documented, it is better to check with your doctor before taking moringa regularly.

  • May Lower Blood Sugar Levels Way Too Much

We have seen that moringa can help lower blood sugar levels (45). If you are already on medications for treating high blood sugar, moringa might lead to hypoglycemiai  A condition in which glucose levels in the body are lower than normal, causing heart palpitations and anxiety. . Hence, please check with your doctor.

  • May Lower Blood Pressure Levels Way Too Much

Moringa can also help lower blood pressure levels (17). If you are already on medications for treating high blood pressure, consuming moringa might lead to hypotension. Hence, it is important to talk to your doctor.

  • Can Be Harmful During Pregnancy

A study states that moringa may cause violent uterine contractions, possibly leading to abortion (46). However, another report documents the use of moringa leaves to curb malnutrition in pregnant and breastfeeding women (47).

These studies are conflicting. Hence, please be on the safe side and do not consume moringa without consulting your doctor.
