Nutritional Composition The Moringa’s incredible medicinal usage which is claimed by many cultures and communities based on by science. Through research, the Moringa was found to contain many essential nutrients, for instance, vitamins, (Fahey, 2005; Hsu et al., 2006; Kasolo et al., 2010). Nutrition content of a plant plays an essential function in medicinal, nutritional, and therapeutic properties (AlAhmad Faizal Abdull Razis et al 8572 Kharusi et al., 2009). It is believed that Moringa leave to potassium as well as protein. It works as an effective.
Due to the presence of ascorbic acid, carotenoids, and phenolics, Moringa is able German, 2000; Siddhuraju and Becker, 2003). It was also found that each different part of the Moringa tree which was studied, be it the fruits, seeds, nutrients. It was similarly mentioned in an article by the Trees For Life organization that ‘every part of the Moringa humanity’. It is rare for a single plant to contain many essential nutrients and furthermore in high quantities.
However, the Moringa on its own was reported to have a higher content of different nutrients compared to those found individually in several different types of food and vegetables (Figure 1). It was reported by several researchers at the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Centre (AVRDC) that the leaves of four of the Moringa species were rich the nutrient content varied with a few factors such as preparation method, leaf age and harvest season.
As commonly known, most vegetables lose their nutrients upon cooking. However, it was observed that Moringa leaves whether fresh, cooked or stored as dried powder for months without refrigeration, did not lose its nutritional value (Hsu et al., 2006). The leaves which were boiled resulted in three times more bio-available iron than the raw leaves. These results were also seen in the powdered Moringa leaves. In addition, the Moringa was found to have a group of unique compounds containing sugar and rhamnose, which are uncommon sugar-modified glucosinolates (Fahey et al., 2001; Fahey, 2005; Amaglo et al., 2010).
These compounds were reported to demonstrate certain chemopreventive activity, by inducing apoptosis (Brunelli et al., 2010). discovered to date are natural drugs. Constant efforts agents. It was recently discovered that the Moringa oleifera well as biochemical analysis of a marker of collagen. In the work by Hamza (2010), treatment with Moringa was found to stimulate hepatoprotective effects against hepatocellular injury by blocking the increase of two serums, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT), which are indicators of liver health conditions. In another study by Verma et al., (2012), the effect Moringa oleifera on pylorus ligation-induced, ethanol-induced, cold-restraint stress-induced and aspirin-induced gastric ulcers were investigated.
The results of all these tests indicated that the total ulcerogenic effect reduced, by showing a dose-dependent anti-ulcerogenic activity by the 50% ethanolic throughout the decades to heal a huge amount of acute and chronic conditions. In vitro and in vivo studies with the plant have recommended its effectiveness in treating inflammation, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia (Bennett et al., 2003; Fahey, 2005; Mbikay, 2012). The found in obesity-induced diabetes which include cytokines: tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFa), interleukin-1 beta (IL- cellular signaling molecule in insulin signaling catalyzed by iNOS (Xu et al., 2003; Ferrante, 2007; Bhargava and Lee, 2012).have been implicated in the pathogenesis of disease states, tissue neutrophil accumulation and activation (Hillefass et al., 1990).
In a study by Caceres et al. (1992), infused Moringa oleifera seeds and roots showed inhibition of carrageenan-induced hind paw edema. The inhibition by the seed infusion conversely was dose-dependent as compared to the root infusion which showed inactivity at certain dosages. However, only seed infusion was stated to be worthy of further study due to indications of more The hepatoprotective properties of Moringa seed. Several Nutritional and Medicinal Chemicals and Compounds Found in the Moringa oleifera1999; Revised in 2001 and Published as The Miracle.
