Moringa Benefits On The Basis Of Studies

Moringa is a plant known for its numerous health benefits. It has been reported to be helpful in treating as well as preventing health issues like heart disease, digestive problems, diabetes, arthritis, anemia, and respiratory problems. Moringa has emerged as a ‘superfood’ because of its high nutritional value, presence of powerful antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties. Moringa tree is found in countries like India, Nepal, and Pakistan. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, “Scientifically speaking, Moringa sounds like magic. It can rebuild weak bones, enrich anemic blood and enable a malnourished mother to nurse her starving baby. Doctors use it to treat diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India …. And it’s not only good for you, it’s delicious”.

Here are some benefits of consuming Moringa as per some studies –


As per Dr. C. Gopalan, President, Nutrition Foundation of India, “Green leafy vegetables and fruits supply much needed essential micronutrients like beta-carotene [vitamin A], vitamin C, folic acid, and also calcium and potassium. Moringa leaves in particular are a rich, inexpensive source of micronutrients”.

Moringa leaves are rich in nutrients like protein, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), potassium, magnesium and iron. Now you know why this plant is known as a superfood. So, taking Moringa will definitely add to your daily nutritional intake. The best part! It is a natural health supplement.  

Reduced Inflammation

Moringa plant can help reduce inflammation. The plant aids in reducing inflammation by suppressing inflammation causing proteins and enzymes in the system.

Carrie Waterman, a University of California, Davis, natural products chemist, says, “Moringa has a high level of antioxidants and very specific molecules that help reduce inflammation, which we know is underlying a lot of the chronic health conditions including cancer, obesity, diabetes and malnutrition”.

Delayed Diabetes

Peter Havel, a professor of nutrition and molecular biosciences, the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, carried out a study on Moringa and diabetes and found that the plant can delay diabetes. Havel concluded that it can delay diabetes in humans for 10 to 15 years.

Now that’s something really interesting. If Moringa can do that, just imagine how wonderful the plant is. It is called ‘miracle tree’ for a reason.

“Although few people have ever heard of it today, Moringa could soon become one of the world’s most valuable plants, at least in humanitarian terms.”

– Noel Vietmeyer, US National Academy of Sciences, Washington D.C.

Now, the question is how to start taking Moringa plant. You can get the Moringa leaves in powdered form, but we would say go for the ‘ras’ form for easier consumption. You can start taking Ikvan’s Moringa Ras for a number of health benefits.
