The leaves, roots, seeds, bark, fruit, flowers and immature pods of Moringa Oleifera offer cardiac and circulatory stimulants, antitumor, antipyretic (fever reducer), antiepileptic, anti-inflammatory, antiulcer, antispasmodic, diuretic, antihypertensive, cholesterol lowering, antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective (ability to prevent liver damage), antibacterial and antifungal activities.
Top physicians have also been recommending Moringa to their patients, without the harmful side effects associated with other conventional treatments.
There are many organizations that support Moinga, here is a partial list:
The pods and seeds of the Moringa tree protect cells from oxidation damage. According to the Journal of Herbal Medicine published by Kumar, Kumar, Singh and Vasisht (2007), the seeds/pods carry properties against action of free radicals that cause cancer and other damage.

Low levels of vitamin E and D are associated with a higher risk of diabetes. Moringa has been used for centuries by healers in India to treat diabetes. The antioxidants in the leaves and roots have also been used to promote healing of diabetes related lesions. As a rich source of Absorbic Acid, Moringa also aids in insulin secretion. As there are no side effects to Moringa use, it is a safe, natural way to manage blood sugar and alleviate symptoms of diabetes. In addition, as diabetes causes circulatory problems, Moringa has been shown to possess key anti-inflammatory benefits. In one study from the Trinity University of Asia & De La Salle University of Manila, blood sugar levels of Hyperglycemic individuals significantly dropped after 2 hours. A mean drop of 28.15 mg/dl in the blood sugar levels was observed.
Liver protective activity of the Moringa oil (also known as Ben Oil) has been used as part of a therapeutic regime in Hepatic (Hepatitus) disorders. Other parts of the plant have been found to prevent early liver injury due to high fat diets. Significant increase was found in deep tissue antioxidant parameters leading to lower lipid peroxidation in a Batan Island, Phillipines study including life-style related disease and illness as well as the circulatory system.

Other clinical studies:
Moringa Oleifera root extracts combined with fruit rind (citrus sinensis) extract have been found to be effective in helping those with Ulcerative Colitis, comparable to the pharmaceutical drug Prednisolone. The flower bud of Moringa widely consumed in Pakistan has been reported to possess antiulcer activity against aspirin-induced gastric ulcers in rats (Akhtar & Ahmad, 1995). A clinical study from the University of Calcutta shows that Moringa Oleifera protects against ulcer formation:
The 92 nutrients in Moringa can help lower blood sugar by stopping sugars from being turned into new fat cells. Methionine found in Moringa is known to absorb fat and cholesterol aiding in burning belly fat naturally. The B vitamins in Moringa leaves also help you digest and convert foods to energy and may increase your metabolism. When the body absorbs whole food source vitamins, proteins and fiber without the calories, studies tend to show a weight loss.
Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Zinc are all essential for the regulation of blood pressure. As Moringa is rich in all these nutrients, it lowers the risk of hypertension by promoting proper blood vessel function. In addition, from Phytotherapy Research (2006) the study published indicated that Moringa leaf extract had a significant effect in reducing blood pressure levels in guinea pigs and rabbits under laboratory conditions.
Lowering blood pressure will be confirmed in less than 2 weeks.
Antioxidants have been proven to be helpful after the onset of AIDS symptoms by boosting the immune system. Moringa leaves contain powerful antioxidants that can help delay the complications arising from AIDS. While proper nutrition is essential to maintain health in HIV-positive patients, Moringa offers an essential alternative for areas such as Africa where modern medical facilities are scarce and overcrowded. At the 14th International AIDS Conference in Barcelona in 2002, it was recommended that Moringa powder be considered as an alternative treatment to boost the systems of HIV-positive patients in Africa who would otherwise not receive antiretroviral drugs.

Moringa seeds are among the most versatile and nutritious seeds available. They can be planted and grown, eaten directly for quick energy and used to treat dirty water. Their medicinal, agricultural and water purification uses have been well documented throughout the years.
Moringa oleifera seeds treat water on two levels, acting both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. Studies have shown that filtering water with Moringa seeds not only diminishes water pollution, but removes 90-99% of harmful bacteria and impurities.
The seeds we offer for planting are picked from the best producing trees in our plantation. They are fresh and guaranteed to have a germination rate of over 95%. The variety grown in Nicaragua is known as very resistant to pests and insects, good tasting leaves according to Lowell Fuglie known as the Johnny Appleseed of Moringa.
