Four Different Moringa Species.

Characteristics of seeds and kernels of Moringa-species.

A research from, Department of Livestock Sciences, Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, Frick, Switzerland.

The family Moringaceae is monogeneric and has 13 Moringa species
See the list here.
Moringa Oleifera, has more records of various kinds of research in scientific databases than of all the other 12 species combined. It has been found that all parts of Moringa Oleifera can be used.
For medicinal purposes, all parts of the plant (roots, leaves, seeds, bark, gum and flower) have been used to treat a multitude of diseases and deficiencies (Anwar et al., 2007).

Seed and leaf material from four different Moringa species were collected from all kind of countries to analyses them on Proximate Composition, Amino and Fatty Acid Profiles and Element Compositions.

Very interesting is to see the below table, the necessary amount of leaf dry matter intake (g) to cover 15% of the daily requirement of a child for the given nutrient of Moringa leaves. Requirement values from Golden (2009), with data from FAO where available, otherwise data from other sources (e.g. Institute of Medicine, IOM).

Moringa against Malaria

Moringa Oleifera against Malaria

Moringa Oleifer a against Malaria

Study indicates that the phytochemicals derived from Moringa Oleifera seeds extracts are effective anti-mosquito agents.

Moringa Oleifera against Malaria, dengue is an important human viral disease transmitted by the yellow fever mosquito, is a mosquito that can spread dengue fever. 2-5 billion people living in tropical and subtropical countries, there are no specific antiviral drugs to treat it and no vaccines to prevent it. Or 3900 million people, in 128 countries, are at risk of infection with dengue viruses.
Symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, jaundice, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue and more serious.

Studies, reported in the 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2016 that threatening diseases by malaria, yellow fever and dengue can be protected by the use of Moringa Oleifera.

2009 and 2011 they investigated the larvicidal effect of Moringa seed extract. The researchers found that this extract was toxic to the larvae of the yellow fever mosquito, an insect that spreads a number of diseases. On the other hand it was found that the extract was harmless to rats. The authors conclude that the seeds and their extract could be used in mosquito control programs. According to Michael Lea (Jal Mandir Technology Clearinghouse) in an e-conference organized by USAID, quote: “Moringa oil on a water tank will help kill mosquito larvae and thus reduce the threat of malaria and other deadly insect-borne diseases.”

Moringa Soap reducing contamination

Moringa Oleifera Soap reducing bacterial contamination.Moringa Oleifera Soap reducing bacterial contamination.

Moringa Oleifera could be very useful in places where soap or water is not available, and where this tree grows naturally.

It could also be a cheap and healthy hand-washing optional product.

Efficacy of Moringa Oleifera leaf powder as a hand- washing product. Other authors found that aqueous and ethanolic Moringa oleifera leaf extracts were effective against Salmonella.

Diarrheal disease are a common cause of morbidity and the leading cause of death among children under five, accounting for 19% of mortality in this age group [1]. Most of all diarrheal deaths of children under five years are in Africa and South East Asia [2].

The vast majority of diarrheal diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses and protozoa, mainly found in human faeces which are spread from the stool of one person to the mouth of another. Hands can act as a vector for transmission of faecal pathogens, either via direct person-to-person transmission or by contaminating food that is later consumed [3]. Hand washing after defecation and before handling food is therefore a biologically plausible mechanism for interrupting pathogen transmission. Hands are also transmission vectors for respiratory infections, and interventions promoting hand hygiene have been shown to reduce gastrointestinal and respiratory illnesses by an average of 31% and 21%, respectively [4].

Methods: The hands of fifteen volunteers were artificially contaminated with Escherichia coli. Moringa oleifera leaf powder was tested as a hand washing product and was compared with reference non-medicated liquid soap using a cross over design following an adaptation of the European Committee for Standardization protocol (EN 1499). In a second part of tests, the efficacy of the established amount of Moringa oleifera leaf powder was compared with an inert powder using the same protocol.

Moringa Anti Ageing

Moringa the prized plant for anti-aging.

Solar ultraviolet exposure is the main cause of skin damage by initiation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to skin collagen imperfection and eventually skin roughness. This can be reduced by proper revitalization of skin enhancing younger and healthier appearance.

The anti-oxidant cystine, found in in Moringa Oleifera stop free radicals, whilst the proteins accelerate the re-growth of new cells.

Furthermore, the vitamin A in Moringa assists in the production of collagen and elastin, helping firm your skin and rid it of wrinkles and other skin defects.

In short, the nutrients which are found in Moringa, can help to keep your skin healthy and fit. Clearly it won’t turn back the clock but as part of a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet it will make a real difference to your health.

Moringa contains a plant hormone known as zeatin. The name ‘zeatin’ is derived from two Greek words (zytos = cell, kinesis = movement). Zeatin contains robust anti-aging properties.

There are currently no other plants to be reported to possess the same, abundant levels of zeatin other than the moringa plant, making moringa the prized plant for anti-aging.
