While many things found in nature can have at least one or two benefits, Moringa has many.
The moringa plant is of African origin and has been touted as the miracle plant. It has been in Jamaica since 1817 and is now found growing island wide. Still, many persons are unaware of its medicinal and nutritional benefits.
Moringa has seven times more vitamin C than oranges, four times more vitamin A than carrots, four times more calcium than milk and twice as much protein as milk. It has three times more iron than almond and three times more vitamin E than spinach. It is considered in many circles to be the number one treatment for high blood pressure and diabetes.
The moringa plant increases the natural defense of the body to beautify the skin, promote energy, gives a feeling of wellness, improves the body’s immunity, stabilize sugar, provides nutrients to eyes and brain, acts as an anti-oxidant, and promotes good cholesterol and normal functioning of the kidney and the liver.
Vitamin C, which is in abundance in moringa, is very important for regulating effectively the production of insulin. It has been shown that insufficient vitamin C affects the capacity of the pancreas to secrete insulin. Vitamin B12, which is also found in the moringa leaf, is used to treat neuropathic diabetes. In addition to this, vitamin D which is found in large proportions in the moringa plant also reduces the chances of children developing type one diabetes
