Studies Show Moringa Could Have Anti-Cancer Benefits
We’ve spoken a lot about the nutritional benefits found in the moringa plant. But did you know that numerous studies have also shown moringa could have a variety of anti-cancer benefits?
While there is unfortunately still no such thing as a foolproof method of preventing or curing cancer, research indicates that moringa could at least improve a person’s chances of never suffering from the disease.
One study from 2003 published by the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention featured researchers closely analyzing skin tumors in mice. Mice who already had tumors were given extracts from moringa seeds to eat. Over time, this control group experienced a dramatic reduction in the amount of tumors.
Another study from 2006 published in the Journal of Experimental Therapeutics and Oncology showed that a certain type of molecule found in moringa caused the death of ovarian cancer cells that had been grown in a lab. More research would need to be done in this area, but scientists were hopeful about the plant’s potential as a result of the study.
A third study performed by ECHO, an agricultural organization working to solve problems of malnourishment in impoverished regions across the world, revealed that a diet rich in moringa leaves substantially alleviated or reduced symptoms of HIV in patients, such as shortness of breath, weight loss, fatigue and chronic cough. These symptoms are also common among people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, emphysema and other types of lung ailments, suggesting that moringa could also be an effective natural supplement for lung cancer patients.
New studies are constantly being performed about the health benefits of the moringa plant, but what is clear with each new bit of research that is released is that this is a plant that has health benefits far beyond the amazing concentration of nutrients it contains.
