Moringa Oleifera as Cure for Gout & Arthritis
What is Arthritis?
For some centuries Moringa Oleifera was used in traditional medicinal practises, like the “Ayurveda”, as a treatment Arthritis and Gout. It was believed that Moringa Leaf Powder reduced inflammations and pain caused by these conditions.
In 2008 the Faculty of Medicine Health Sciences of the Putra University in Malaysia, published research aimed to test if Moringa poses any Antinociceptive and Anti-Inflammatory activities, the same activities achieved by the drugs used in modern day medicine for instance NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). The investigation found that the Moringa leaves posses substances that have antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activitie; in fact they discovered that it has high quantities of these substances. This means that Moringa Oleifera is used in Indian traditional medicine as a treatment for Arthritis and Gout.
The effects of the Moringa is suppressing the COX-2 enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for inflammation processes and pain. Usually the drugs used to suppress this enzyme are NSAID for example Voltaren, Nksin, Adoil, ARCOXIA, Kaspo etc. The side effects of these products include risk for stroke, kidney problems, blood vessels problems, stomach problems and the list goes on.
High Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is likely to rise with age. Following a healthy lifestyle helps some people delay or prevent this increase in blood pressure.
Who is in Danger of Hypertension?
Hypertension increases your chance (or risk) for getting heart disease and/or kidney disease, and for having a stroke. It is especially dangerous considering that it often has no warning signs or symptoms. Regardless of race, age, or gender, anyone can develop hypertension. Approximately one in every four American adults has high blood pressure. Once high blood pressure develops, it usually lasts a lifetime.
High blood pressure can eventually cause blood vessels in the eye to burst or bleed. Vision may become blurred or otherwise impaired and can lead to blindness. As people grow older, arteries throughout the body “harden,” in particular those in the heart, brain, and kidneys. High blood pressure is associated with these “stiffer” arteries. This, consequently, causes the heart and kidneys to work harder. The kidneys act as filters to rid the body of wastes. As time passes, high blood pressure can narrow and thicken the blood vessels of the kidneys. The kidneys filter less fluid, and waste accumulates in the blood. The kidneys may fail altogether.
High blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiac arrest. The arteries bring oxygen-carrying blood to the heart muscle. If the heart cannot get enough oxygen, chest pain, also referred to as “angina,” can take place. If the flow of blood is blocked, a heart attack results. High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for congestive heart failure (CHF). CHF is a serious condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to supply the body’s needs.
The important nutrients required by a person struggling with high blood pressure are Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, and Vitamin E. Moringa contains these entire nutrient in it. Moringa contains Vitamin C which helps support the body’s production of nitric oxide, which is essential to normal functioning of blood vessels. The better your blood vessels work, the lower your risk of hypertension. Calcium is essential for smooth muscle relaxation and contraction; increased consumption can have a direct influence on blood vessels. It’s wise to get your calcium from your diet; research has found that in comparison with supplements, dietary calcium has twice the benefits for blood pressure.
Potassium content of the Moringa is 15 times more in comparison to Banana. Potassium acts by increasing sodium excretion in the urine, which helps blood vessels dilate, and changing the interactions of hormones that affect blood pressure.
Diet loaded with magnesium benefits those with hypertension, most likely by contributing to the relaxation of the smooth muscles of the blood vessels. Moringa also includes magnesium along with zinc and vitamin E which takes part in decreasing the blood pressure together with other nutrients.
