Let's know more about Malunggay or Moringa Leaves!

These malunggay or moringa leaves have 7 times more vitamin C than oranges and 15 times more potassium than bananas. Moringa oleifera contains calcium, protein, iron, and essential amino acids, which help your body heal and build muscle.  It is also packed with antioxidants, substances that can protect cells from damage and may boost your immune system. There's some evidence that some of these antioxidants can also lower blood pressure and reduce fat in the blood and body.

Moringa seed oil protects hair against free radicals and keeps it clean and healthy. Moringa also contains protein, which helps to protect skin cells from damage. It also contains hydrating and detoxifying properties that benefit the skin and hair. Several studies have shown that Moringa oleifera may help lower blood sugar levels. However, most of the evidence is based on animal studies and more research is needed before making any solid recommendations. In animal and test-tube studies, Moringa oleifera has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. It can also lower your cholesterol levels, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.

Moreover, Moringa also contains calcium and phosphorous, which aid in the maintenance of healthy and strong bones. Along with its anti-inflammatory properties, moringa extract may aid in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis and may also help to heal damaged bones. Moringa has a few known side effects as well. According to research, eating the leaves or young seed pods is generally safe, and leaf extracts made from powder and water may also be safe. However, eating bark or pulp can be dangerous, especially for pregnant women. Chemicals in the bark may cause the uterus to contract, resulting in a miscarriage. Moringa has anti-fertility properties and is therefore not recommended for pregnant women. Talk to your doctor before taking moringa or any supplement, especially if you take any medications. [1]
