Nowadays, people have become dependent on medicine in order to stay healthy. However, there is always a natural way to provide good health to your body. One such herb is Moringa Oleifera, a plant that originates from South Asia.

Traditionally, it is used in medical treatments for many years. It is known as a drumstick, a potent herb rich in powerful antioxidants.

7 Reasons for Consuming Moringa Fruit and Leaves

1. Value of Nutrition

Moringa’s fruits and leaves are rich in powerful vitamins and minerals. One cup of pods will provide 157% RDA Vitamin C.

It is also rich in:

  • Vitamin B6 – 19% of the recommended daily needs
  • Iron – 11%
  • Vitamin C – 12%
  • Magnesium – 8%
  • Vitamin B2 Riboflavin – 11%
  • Vitamin A – 9%
  • Protein 2g

Its dry leaves can be used as supplements but always choose the natural plant.

2. Strong Bones

Moringa promotes better bone density due to the level of iron and calcium which prevents bone loss. It is also recommended for adolescents because it improves their health and stamina.

3. Headache Relief

Prepare juice from the Moringa’s roots and combine it with an equal amount of jaggery.

4. Eye Issues

This herb can soothe conditions such as conjunctivitis. Just grind its leaves and apply the paste to the eyes. If you combine this juice with honey, you can use it as eyeliner and thus resolve corneal issues and eye swelling.

5. Lowering the Blood Sugar

If you have diabetes, this herb will help regulate this condition. If you experience abnormal blood sugar levels, start using this herb as soon as you can. According to the conducted studies on animals, Moringa positively resolves this condition. Similar human-based studies are still in progress.

One particular study included 30 females who reduced their blood sugar level by 13.5% after they were given 7g leaf powder for three months.

6. Pure Blood

Moringa leaves and pods can effectively cleanse the blood. For example, prepare Moringa soup and apply it topically on acne and pimples. This will heal them due to the antibiotic properties.

7. Anti-Aging

The abundance of Vitamin A will slow down the process of aging, improve vision and strengthen immunity.

Although Moringa is still being explored, it is rich in many health benefits. So, make sure you include it in your diet as soon as you can.
