Moringa contains a unique compound called Zeatin. Zeatin is a plant hormone, or cytokinin, that possesses anti-aging properties. In one scientific study, Zeatin demonstrated “youth-preserving” effects on human skin cells. It prevented cell enlargement, reduced the “debris” inside of the cells, and protected the cells against oxidative damage.
Moringa contains over 46 different antioxidant compounds including quercetin, rutin, kaempferol and chlorogenic acids. In an independent study published online, Moringa scored the highest in antioxidant content of any food that has ever been tested. It beat the record-holding acai berry by over a 50% margin! In a separate study, Moringa beat cabbage, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and peas for their antioxidant power.
Another unique and rare compound found in Moringa, thiocarbamate, has been demonstrated to have the ability to support a normal blood pressure in animals.
Blood Sugar Support
Blood Sugar Support
Moringa really shines in this category. In traditional Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha systems of medicine, Moringa was used for centuries to support normal blood sugar levels. And Moringa’s effects on blood sugar have stood up to today’s rigorous scientific standards. Study after study, including human clinical trials, has confirmed Moringa’s ability to support normal blood sugar.
Another traditional use of Moringa was to support normal cholesterol levels. Moringa has been shown to be able to support normal cholesterol levels and improve cardiovascular health in animals fed high-fat diets. It is thought that a compound found in Moringa, beta-sitosterol, is responsible for this benefit. The ability for Moringa to support normal cholesterol levels has also been demonstrated in human clinical trials.
Moringa has a long history of being traditionally revered as an energy-booster. This is the #1 effect we see from consuming Moringa. Moringa provides the body with essential vitamins and minerals, including B12 and iron that gives the body the tools to produce more energy.

The liver is a good organ to keep happy. Not only does it provide us with the ability to detoxify harmful toxins, but the liver also produces important proteins and clotting factors, stores vitamin A and iron, and regulates the amount of sugar, protein and fat that enters our bloodstream. Scientific studies have demonstrated Moringa’s amazing liver-protective properties.
Moringa is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. Western diets, laden with nutrient-deficient foods, contribute to soaring obesity rates. When eating nutrient-deficient foods, our bodies are not fulfilled with the nutrients we need and we then tend to have more cravings, leading to overeating. Moringa leaves are low in fat, high in protein and have an amazing array of vitamins and minerals. The B vitamins in Moringa can help your body process foods to energy more efficiently and possibly improve your overall metabolism.
Moringa is a rich source (up to 25%!) of plant-based protein. This is an unusually high percentage of protein for a plant, and is wonderful news for all the vegetarians and vegans out there. Moringa also contains all nine of the essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Not to mention the great vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it possesses!
