Rich in anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidants, the plant’s leaves are both a great food and an effective medicine. In fact, research from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center notes that extracts from the plant have hypoglycemic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties as well. Given this, it might not be far into the future when patients will be prescribed with special moringa oleifera capsules produced specifically to treat disease.
Having drawn the attention of researchers and nutritionists worldwide, moringa oleifera growers have worked to provide a wide range of products in order to give consumers as many options as possible to benefit from the plant. Companies like Moringa Delight already offer the product in powder or extract form, as a refreshing tea, or even as Kosher/vegan-certified moringa leaf capsules.
