What is moringa oleifera leaf extract?
Moringa is a plant that has been recognized, used and valued for thousands of years in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. It’s the only genus in the plant family Moringaceae and is grown in the world’s tropical regions and in Madagascar, primarily for the exceptional nutritional value of its leaves.
These leaves contain vitamins — particularly Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B2 — and minerals — primarily iron and magnesium — and important amino acids and fatty acids, as well as precious antioxidants, including rare carotenoids, flavonoids and phenols.
Studies have shown that moringa leaf uses include anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertensive, diuretic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antihyperlipidemic, cardio-protective, and tissue protective properties.
What is in moringa oleifera capsules?
Organic Moringa is an aqueous extract made from the plant’s leaves. It contains three major types of compound, in addition to the above-mentioned vitamins, minerals and fatty acids:
- Polyphenols, including flavonoids and phenolic acids. The principal flavonoids in moringa leaves are quercetin, rutin, chlorogenic acid, kaempferol, myricetin and benzylamine (moringine), while the most abundant phenolic acids are salicylic, gallic, coumarinic and caffeic acid, as well as chlorogenic acid. The latter plays a role in glucose metabolism.
- Alkaloids, in particular glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, which are primarily responsible for Moringa’s anti-inflammatory effects.
- Saponins, which combat cholesterol absorption by binding to molecules and acids in bile.
Two additional molecules, niazarin and niaziridin, present in moringa leaves, increase the biological activity of the antibiotic compounds and facilitate gastrointestinal absorption of the vitamins and other micronutrients present in the leaves.
Moringa Leaf Extract Side Effects
Consuming Moringa oleifera aqueous leaf extract can be highly beneficial as a cholesterol regulating supplement. However, before adding any new supplements to your daily regime, you need to do your research to figure out whether moringa oleifera is right for you.
Grasping all the potential moringa oleifera leaf extract side effects can enable you to make an informed decision on your health. Moringa oleifera capsules are incredibly safe for most people, but you need to tread with caution if you are taking any prescription medications regularly.
Consult your doctor to learn more about Moringa oleifera leaf extract benefits and how it may interact with any existing medications prescribed to you. While online research is important for responsible supplement usage, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Your doctor will be able to go through your medical history, family medical history, and your current state of health to determine whether or not moringa supplements are suitable for you. Listen to your doctor, and then make an informed decision on whether you should buy moringa leaf extract.
Finally, make sure that you tell your healthcare professional about any other supplements you’re taking. The active ingredients in other supplements could interfere with Organic Moringa.
