Moringa is the miracle plant everyone is talking about. Well known in Africa and India, it is a tree that grows in tropical areas. This plant, also known as the tree of life, could "cure everything". But what is it really?

Origin of the moringa: The species that has been studied the most is the moringa oleifera. It originates from India, but has been acclimatised in many parts of the world. Other species have been studied: moringa concanensis, moringa stenopltela... There are other local species, in different continents, which have not been studied, but which probably have equivalent properties.

The moringa tree can grow very tall. In fact, it grows very fast in the tropics, especially in dry areas. You can grow it from seed.

How is moringa used? The leaves are most frequently used in moringa: either as an infusion, or cooked as food, or as a powder. The latter is preferable, as the whole plant can be used. The powder is thus added to food, for example soup, compote, etc.

It should be noted that the use of the moringa tree differs from country to country. In some countries the bark is ground into powder, in others the roots. Sometimes the seed or seed oil is used. Finally, all parts of the tree can be used.

What is in moringa powder? It is a plant that is very rich in nutrients. Indeed, the leaves contain vitamin E, vitamin C and A, calcium, selenium, magnesium, iron, potassium, amino acids, etc.

It is a good source of vegetable protein and contains up to 18 of the 20 amino acids used by our body. These are essential for our body's needs to build and repair cells. Being highly nutritious, this source can restore the reserves of a deficient person.

From a medicinal point of view, moringa contains all the major families of constituents found in plants, such as: alkaloids, saponosides, tannins, flavonoids, phenolic acids, terpenes, etc...

Moringa is rich in components of the flavonoid family, namely : Rutin, quercetin, rhamnetin, apigenin, etc. As a result, its antioxidant power is powerful. Moreover, in some studies, it has been found to have a higher antioxidant power than vitamin C.

The benefits of moringa powder on our body: Powerful antioxidant power.

Under normal conditions, our body produces free radicals. These are useful molecules for the proper functioning of the body. Sometimes, it happens that the pollutants around us, pesticides, radiation, etc., cause free radicals to attack our tissues and destroy them if there are not enough antioxidants to intercept them. It is therefore important to look for foods rich in antioxidants such as coloured fruits and vegetables.

As far as plants are concerned, we have the opportunity to find some rich in antioxidants: this is the case of moringa. This is particularly important when we suffer from chronic degenerative diseases, because there is constant inflammation. The immune system is under constant pressure: there are more free radicals than usual.

And in all these autoimmune diseases, all chronic inflammatory diseases, it is good to take natural antioxidants. Moringa cannot cure these diseases. But it can support your system, protect it and help it do its job better.

Anti-inflammatory power: Moringa has direct anti-inflammatory properties, confirmed by several animal studies. Moringa is said to be effective for all inflammation of the digestive mucosa: according to a study on ulcers induced by anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and another which shows the severity of colitis caused by acidic substances. So we have a plant that is active against digestive inflammations, it would probably be effective in all types of inflammation of the gums, oesophagus, ulcers, colitis, Crohn's disease.

Respiratory anti-allergic: It is a good plant for chronic respiratory allergy problems. Note that you will sometimes be sold flavonoid tablets such as quercetin for respiratory allergies. Be aware that in moringa leaves we don't have just one kind of flavonoid but a nice collection that can stabilize the condition of our inflamed respiratory mucous membranes and calm down those respiratory allergies a bit.

Tissue repairer: In studies, we see that moringa stimulates cell repair, by accelerating the activity of fibroblasts. These are the cells that enable cell repair, sometimes with better results than those obtained with a substance called allantoin, which is found in other repairing plants such as comfrey.

It is therefore a repairer of tissues, mucous membranes and skin problems. And since the plant is very powerful antibacterial, it is probably an excellent plant for healing wounds of all kinds. Because it repairs and disinfects at the same time.

Antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic action: In addition to having an antibacterial action, moringa is said to be antiviral and antiparasitic. In Ethiopia, its roots are used to treat malaria.

It is active against Escherichia coli and salmonella, present in water. Moreover, a study shows that the powder of the leaves used to clean the hands is as effective as liquid soap against Escherichia coli.

This is why moringa is used in some countries to make water safer to drink. The crushed seeds are mixed with water. It is therefore an interesting plant for food poisoning, especially traveller's diarrhoea.

Effect on the metabolism: Moringa helps to lower blood sugar levels when they are too high. At the same time it helps to regulate blood lipid levels, cholesterol and triglycerides. There are few studies on humans in this context.

An antihypertensive action is noted through studies on animals but not on humans. That said, it is a property that points in the right direction and therefore probably a good plant for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in a very broad sense.

Dosage and administration of the tree of life: It can be deduced from this that it is an excellent plant for the prevention of civilization diseases. It can be compared to green tea for its protection, which can be taken regularly as a powder in food or as a tea from the leaves.

Dosages: a teaspoon to a tablespoon of powder incorporated into a soup, a compote, a vegetable juice, or simply as an infusion if you can tolerate the taste.

If taken regularly, in the same way as a cup of tea, you can prepare a cup of moringa powder from time to time to replenish your antioxidant reserves, to obtain this protective shield effect.

Caution: Since moringa has hypoglycaemic properties, be careful if you are taking treatment for diabetes, there may be a risk of hypoglycaemic events.

Sometimes there can be a laxative side to it for some people when you start taking the powder, so introduce the powder gradually.

Otherwise, there are rare cases of allergic reactions to moringa powder.
