The Advantages and Uses of Moringa

Standard

Employed in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years, the plentiful Moringa oleifera tree provides medicinal and nutritional benefits from virtually every part of the plant. Native to the sub-Himalayan range and commonly cultivated in India and Burma, Moringa is becoming increasingly popular as a medicinal plant and now grown in other regions around the globe.

Moringa, or Shigru as it is known in Ayurvedic medicine produces substantial spinach-like leaves that can be used in curries, drank as a tea or dried and ground into a powder to consume as a nutritious plant based food. It is in these leaves that much of the nutrition is contained, including good amounts of proteins, calcium, iron and vitamin A. Other parts of the plant are employed as food or medicine many different purposes, the pods of the tree are a delicious vegetable that can be prepared with rice or other vegetables, the root of the tree is used in cooking much like horseradish and the seeds of the plant are used to make an oil which was traditionally used for symptoms of rheumatism or gout. The flowers, fruit and bark have also been used traditionally and throughout history for a number of health conditions.

In Australia, unless you are lucky enough to have a Moringa tree (typically referred to as a Drumstick tree) growing on your lawn, most of us only have access to the Moringa oil, leaves and the powdered leaf. Western herbal medicine recognises Moringa oleifera leaf powder for its benefit for the cardiovascular system, among many other qualities it is known as a circulatory stimulant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antibacterial and antifungal. The combined and diverse qualities of this herb makes it an ideal medicinal food to be included for those with chronic health conditions associated with the indulgent Western lifestyle including type two diabetes, hypertension and numerous digestive and inflammatory conditions.

The superior nutritional breakdown of this herb and the mild and palatable taste of this herb makes it an ideal medicinal food to be added to the diet for those with low energy, for vegetarians and also as traditionally used, for nursing mothers.
