Moringa oleifera is a tree brought from the mind of God to the hands of man. It was identified by the National Institutes of Health as the Botanical of the Year for 2007, and acknowledged again in 2011 and 2012. It is valued worldwide for its ability to treat over 300 diseases. It has the power to retain substantial concentrations of electrolyte minerals, allowing it to stay internally hydrated in the driest of conditions. Africans have honored it with names that translate to: “Never Die,” and “The Only Thing that Grows in the Dry Season,” and “Mother’s Milk.” I think it’s safe to say that this plant has preserved more lives in 3rd world countries than any other. Why do I believe this? This phenomenal tree is capable of supplying what the body requires and these enzymatically active amino acid sequences may simply not exist in the food chain elsewhere, and that is just the tip of the dietary iceberg when it comes to Moringa oleifera.
It’s a regrettable fact that our own “civilized” food supply no longer feeds us well nutritionally. Our meals are comforting, and tastes good, but as far as our cells are concerned, too much of the food we eat is over-processed, denatured and acidic, and winds up depleting our bodies- robbing us as opposed to feeding us. Today’s Western diet regime has twice the calorie intake of a consumer in 1965 and we are receiving 75% less nutrient value for current calories consumed. Seeking daily, quality nutrient supplementation is no longer an alternative but essential for health. We all need to supplement our diets in the most beneficial and economical means possible.
When we consider the incidence of disease affecting the 317,000,000 U.S. citizens (215 million overweight or obese, 50 million with heart disease, 45 million with chronic headaches, 44 million with osteoporosis, 37 million with arthritis, 30 million with sinus problems, 26 million with diabetes, 79 million pre-diabetes, 12 million with cancer, 6 million with Alzheimer’s) and we understand the connection between nutrition and disease, it seems obvious but we should ask how did this come to pass. Hippocrates will be proven right: food is definitely our medicine and the solution to disease.
Moringa oleifera supplies a rare blend of zeatin (a potent antioxidant), quercetin (a flavonoid recognized for its ability to neutralize free radicals and relieve inflammation), beta-sitosterol (a nutrient superstar that blocks cholesterol formation or build-up and is an anti-inflammatory agent for the body), caffeoylquinic acid (another highly effective anti-inflammatory substance), and kaempferol (a vital nutrient that promotes healthy body cellular function). All in all, enzymatically active and bioavailable Moringa oleifera provides 36 natural anti-inflammatory agents. Free radical deterioration caused by electron-seeking, highly reactive, oxidative molecules has been recognized as the origin of many maladies through mechanisms such as inhibition of telomerase, changes to cellular permeability and DNA damage. It has been revealed that Moringa oleifera contains 46 different antioxidants.
According to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s web page, “In vitro and animal studies indicate that the leaf, seed, and root extracts of Moringa oleifera have anticancer (3) (4), hepatoprotective(10), hypoglycemic (12), anti-inflammatory (13) (14), antibacterial (18) (19), antifungal (20), antiviral (21), and antisickling (37) effects. They may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease (29) , stomach ulcers (24), help lower cholesterol levels (25), and promote wound healing (30).” All I can say is “WOW!” When well known cancer clinics begin to tout the benefits of an organic botanical, then we know that there must be something to it! But that’s merely the tip of the iceberg with Moringa oleifera!
This “miracle tree” is able to supply all of the amino acids essential for human body. Protein is needed not only for the structural components for example muscle and tissues, but neurotransmitters, hormones, enzymes and immunoglobulins too. There are several nutrients that can have a beneficial influence on enhancing immune system function and Moringa oleifera definitely qualifies in this category due to the ability to provide a number of these phytonutrients.
Speaking of the immune system, one of the functions of the body’s defense mechanisms is to keep pathogens from developing, proliferating and damaging tissues. Moringa oleifera has been shown to be anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and antibiotic, which will undoubtedly lighten the strain on the immune system. Furthermore, Moringa oleifera exhibits the cabability to be a powerful detoxifying agent.
Amazingly, the leaves of this remarkable tree contain 7 times the vitamin C found in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk, 4 times the vitamin A in carrots, 2 times the protein of yogurt, 25 times the iron in spinach, and 3 times the potassium in bananas.
The actual mystery is how this four thousand year-old panacea plant went missing and disappeared from the nutritional horizon. Thankfully it has reappeared. As a matter of fact, the Bethesda, Maryland-based International Eye Foundation is currently using Moringa, with its high content of beta-carotene, converting to Vitamin A in the body, to battle childhood blindness. Doctors are using Moringa oleifera to deal with diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India.
