Nutritional and Medicinal Health Benefits of Moringa Olifera (Malunggay)
Moringa (Malunggay) health and nutritional benefits has been documented in a number of medical and scientific literatures and is being used world-wide for the prevention and treatment of diseases and to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers. Moringa preparations have been cited in the scientific literature as having antibiotic, antitrypanosomal, hypotensive, antispasmodic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, hypocholesterolemic, and hypoglycemic activities, as well as having considerable efficacy in water purification. . more....
Moringa Oleifera "The Miracle Tree" - Disease Prevention and Treatment
Dr. Monica Marcu, Ph.D. - "Moringa is an extraordinary plant. It's a plant that has all the nutrients that could be found in a perfect food."
Medical Evidence for Moringa's Nutritional,Therapeutic
Moringa’s use as an antibiotic in traditional medicine dates back thousands of years, while scientific evidence of it has been in existence since the late 1940’s. These studies were conducted largely in the orient, which is why Western medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have largely remained ignorant of it. Indian scientists have identified Pterygospermin as the active compound in moringa that causes its antibacterial action. Pterygospermin, once consumed, breaks down into two separate benzyl isothiocyanate, a substance with known antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown that moringa leaf juice can be particularly effective against the Pseudononas aeruginosa bacterium, which can cause diseases in both animals and humans. This bacterium usually infects people with damaged exposed tissues or a weakened immune system, oftentimes manifesting itself through inflammation. In severe cases, the bacteria can take hold in the major organs such as the lungs, kidneys, or the urinary tract, with potentially fatal consequences. Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium more commonly known as the cause of staph infections, which usually manifest as a skin infection. It was found that moringa was just as effective as the commercial antibiotic Neomycin in getting rid of the infection.
Sometimes, people think that solutions to their problems are expensive and hard to find. But more often than not, real solutions to basic problems are abundant, cheap and even free. Health problems are especially solvable with natural inexpensive gifts from nature. Moringa, for example, is a wonderful blessing for us all. Locally, it is called malunggay and is easily available everywhere. Unfortunately, it is little appreciated by many Filipinos. Today, I would like to share with the good news about Moringa, as written by Mark Fritz of the Los Angeles Times.

"The medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals whose
main objective is profits, and whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic
of good health. Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything
goes: lies, fraud, and kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople

- "To raise glutathione levels is to
reduce premature oxidation, to quench destructive free radicals and help
detoxify the poisons inside each cell when it needs to. Only Immunocal
