The Moringa leaf extract (MLE) is consider as a natural plant growth regulator where, it is a source of zeatin which it is natural derivative of cytokinin, proteins, vitamins E, phenolics, ascorbates, essential amino acid and several mineral elements, making to putting it as a potential natural growth stimulant, as mentioned by Emongor (2012), Rady et al. (2013), Howladar (2014) and Rady et al. (2015). Other reports have been showed that Moringa extract play as a plant hormone which enhances seed germination, growth and yield of crops. MLE foliar spray improved crop performance, resulting from its role on vigorous plant growth, maintained optimum tissue water status, improved membranes stability, enhanced antioxidant content, as mentioned by Anwar and Bhanger (2003), Nagar et al.

The potential of Moringa is far greater than your local cold-pressed juice counter.
Moringa is not only exceptionally drought-resistant but its leaves have a huge amount of protein, about 30 percent dry weight.

Kale and Matcha have long since ruled the supergreens kingdom. But recently, a powerful new grassy-hued food has started making waves as an even healthier alternative. Moringa oleifera, also known as horseradish tree because of the pungent, bitter flavor of the roots, is a tree native to India, Pakistan, and Nepal. You may have noticed the catchy name, which sounds more like a salsa dance move than a superfood, cropping up as an ingredient in smoothies, juices, and booster shots at health food shops nationwide. Some have already called Moringa, with its seemingly endless list of benefits, the next big supergreen of 2017. But while it may strike the average green-juice–swigging American as new, the nutrient-packed plant has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.

Mark Olson, a professor of evolutionary biology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, who has studied Moringa for more than 20 years. “Moringa is not only exceptionally drought-resistant but its leaves have a huge amount of protein, about 30 percent dry weight, similar to powdered milk at a fraction of the cost. With so much of the global population facing protein-energy malnutrition, a protein-rich food that grows well in a drought-prone area of high population density is very important,” says Olson.

“What is really exciting about Moringa is that it provides needed nutrition and ‘nutraceutical’ effects for people in places where these things are really needed,” says Olson.

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, today many Americans are considered to be overfed but undernourished, sometimes suffering from micronutrient deficiency as a result. In these reverse situations, Moringa could also be used as a similarly beneficial nutritional supplement in nations where calories are readily available but which class someone is in too often determines access to nutritious food.

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 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.

    Moringa leaves are reported to be rich in phenolics and antioxidants like vitamin C, B and A [10].
  • Leaves are used as purgative, applied as the poultice to sores, rubbed on the temples for headaches, used for piles, fevers, sore throat, bronchitis, eye and ear infections, anti-inflammatory, scurvy and catarrh.
  • It protects the human skin from environmental influences and combats premature skin aging [11].

Moringa highest absorption carbon dioxide emission. Study on Moringa and global warming revealed that 1 person emits 320kg of CO2/yr, it takes 23 Japanese Cedar trees takes 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2; it takes 2 Moringa trees 2 years to absorb this amount and 1 family car emits 2300kg of CO2/yr, it takes 160 Japanese Cedar trees 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2, it  takes  10  Moringa  trees 2  years  etc  (Muriel,  2010).

Advancing the Science of Climate Change:
A strong, credible body of scientific evidence shows that climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems, concludes this panel report from the America’s Climate Choices suite of studies. As decision makers respond to these risks, the nation’s scientific enterprise can contribute both by continuing to improve understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change, and by improving and expanding the options available to limit the magnitude of climate change and adapt to its impacts.

To make this possible, the nation needs a comprehensive, integrated, and flexible climate change research enterprise that is closely linked with action-oriented programs at all levels.

According to a Japanese study (Villafuerte, and Villafurte-Abonal, 2009) the rate of absorption or assimilation of carbon dioxide by the Moringa tree is twenty times (20x) higher than that of general vegetation and fifty times (50x) higher when compared to the Japanese cedar tree.

The Moringa tree therefore will be a useful tool in the prevention of global warming in that: One (1) moringa tree will be equivalent to the effectiveness of fifty (50) Japanese cedar tree in absorbing carbon dioxide (Villafuerte, and Villafurte-Abonal 2009). For example, If we expanded Moringa from one hundred thousand (100,000) hectares worldwide to one million (1,000,000) hectares, that would equate to five (5) gigatonnes of CO2e being sequestered.
