Moringa, commonly known as “Drum stick” or “Horseradish”, is considered as an important plant in Ayurveda. Moringa is rich in vegetable oil and has high nutritional values. Its leaves and flowers are mainly used to manage various diseases.
Moringa lowers cholesterol levels by increasing good cholesterol in the body. It also protects the liver against damage due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also good for diabetics as it helps lower blood sugar levels. Moringa is beneficial for men as it has aphrodisiac property. Drinking Moringa juice helps to manage blood pressure by acting as a diuretic. Moringa can either be taken in the form of tea, powder or capsules.
Moringa oil when applied to the skin helps prevent acne and promotes wound healing due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Applying a paste of Moringa leaf powder also helps in joint pain.
