Moringa and Diabetes
Moringa Oleifera is a nutrient plant that can help to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Moringa Oleifera holds so much promise for those who suffer from diabetes. This is primarily because of its many amazing, natural benets. Moringa Oleifera has been shown to naturally boost the immune system, which usually becomes compromised in those who suffer from type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Moringa Oleifera has also been shown to possess many key anti-inflammatory benefits; diabetes often causes circulatory problems which can be managed through anti-inflammatory supplements. There are no negative side effects associated with Moringa Oleifera use, meaning that it is a safe, natural way for people to manage their blood sugar and care for their diabetes symptoms. It's just one more option for the many people who have to cope with this serious condition.
"Unexpected benets of Moringa include an apparent cure for tapeworms and help in controlling diabetes and high blood pressure."
Moringa has Antioxidants Galore
Moringa is said to have approximately 46 antioxidants and is one of the most powerful sources of natural antioxidants. Antioxidants supply the free atoms needed by the human body and mitigate the effect of free radicals. Moringa leaves are rich in Flavonoids, a class of anti-oxidants. The beta carotene present in Moringa leaves also acts as antioxidants.
The antioxidants will have the maximum impact on the damage causing free radicals, only when it is ingested in combination with nutrients and a group of antioxidants. A combination of antioxidants is more effective than a single antioxidant on an equal weight basis due to antioxidant cascade mechanism. This is why Moringa tea acts as an effective source of antioxidants than any other herbal tea or even a Green tea.
"By using Moringa daily, you can supply your body with the nutrients it needs to protect and heal itself. The best medicine is preventative medicine. Moringa furnishes the body with the nutrients needed to prevent disease and illness."
Moringa's Anti-Aging Compound - Zeatin
Moringa is jammed with a cytokinin called zeatin. Cytokinins are plant hormones that help cells divide and protect against oxidation. Zeatin is the most powerful of all cytokinins. According to a 2004 Danish study, zeatin helps promote small cell size, a key component to more youthful skin. It also influences the structural and functional integrity of the cell, and prevents accumulation of macromolecular damage in the cell.
The study found that zeatin increases the activity of some antioxidant enzymes, counteracting the free radical-induced oxidative damage incurred during cell aging. So which plant has more zeatin than any other? Moringa not only contains thousands of times more zeatin than any other known plant, it is also the most nutritious plant discovered to date, with over 90 nutritional compounds including 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatories.
"Zeatin is a plant hormone derived from the purine adenine. It is a member of the plant growth hormone family known as cytokinins. Zeatin was first discovered in immature corn kernels from the genus Zea. Zeatin and derivatives were discovered to be the primary active ingredient in coconut milk, which has long been known to actively induce plant growth. As in the case of kinetin, zeatin has also been reported to have several in vitro anti-aging effects on human skin Fibroblasts."
