What is Moringa Oleifera?
Moringa oleifera, also known as the Tree of Life, is an ancient tree that grows throughout the world close to the equator and comes from the moringa tree.
Originating in India, and native to the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountains, Moringa has been a part of ancient Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, and is said to alleviate symptoms of over 300 illnesses.
The leaves from this truly incomparable tree are used by native villagers for nutrition, healing and health. The World Health Organization began to introduce Moringa to destitute African villages, and within a year were able to reduce infant mortality as much as 50%. Additionally, the seed husk works as a flocculent to purify water for drinking!
Substantiated by science and proven in ancient practice, Moringa has been under careful study by some of the world’s leading doctors, and has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show.
Moringa was also featured as the #1 Wellness Trend in 2018 by Good Morning America.

Moringa for Weight Loss
Moringa, because it is a super food, enhances the body’s immune system and improves overall health. In addition to this function, Moringa contains a strong concentration of glucoinsolates which break down isothiocyanates so they can be absorbed into the small intestine and improve the metabolism.
Consequently, the body absorbs more nutrients, and experiences very noticeable increases in energy without the use of caffeine, also elevating the digestive system to help efficiently burn calories. You feel more energetic, healthier and have a better ability to burn fat and reduce absorption of sugars into the blood stream.
As with any weight loss plan, Moringa should be incorporated into a healthy balanced lifestyle with regular exercise, adequate water consumption and fresh food choices.
Moringa for Diabetes
For people suffering from diabetic symptoms, Moringa reduces the blood’s glucose levels. Moringa is low on the Glycemic Index (GI) meaning it maintains a healthy flow of glucose for the body to use and often reduces a diabetic’s dependency on insulin.
High GI foods – such as candy and junk food – create a spike in the blood’s sugar levels, which can lead to heightened energy for a small duration of time, quickly followed by a drop and long period of fatigue. It’s these high GI foods that can slow the metabolism and increase the chances of weight gain. Moringa reduces the craving for these types of foods, and provides sustained energy with it’s nutrients.
As with any diabetic meal plan, Moringa should be incorporated into a healthy balanced lifestyle with regular exercise, adequate water consumption and fresh food choices.
Moringa Oleifera Benefits: Cancer
Moringa studies linked to fighting cancer… Research in the past two years has shown that Moringa leaf effectively killed up to 93% of human lung cancer cells in vitro after 48 hours, and also strongly inhibited their ability to grow and spread (stopping them from metastasizing).
In the study, after seven days, the Moringa extract had actually wiped out virtually 100% of the lung cancer cell colonies. It was also effective in killing breast cancer and skin cancer cells while other studies showed Moringa’s ability to suppress ovarian colon and liver cancer as well as myeloma and melanoma.
