Moringa May Help Lower Blood Sugar Levels

High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) is a serious health problem that may lead to damage to your nerves, blood vessels, and organs. It can also lead to other serious conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

For this reason, it is important to keep your blood sugar balanced. Several studies have shown that Moringa oleifera may help lower blood sugar levels. This is perhaps due to the isothiocyanates compounds it contains that reduce lipid and glucose levels and regulates oxidative stress.

Moringa Protects the Liver

Moringa contains polyphenols that protect the liver against oxidation, toxicity, and damage. Moringa can also reduce fibrosis, restore liver enzymes to normal levels, lower oxidative stress, and increase protein content in the liver.

Moringa Oleifera May Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s natural response mechanism to infection or trauma. There are two types: acute and chronic. Acute is short-lived and is a response to a foreign harmful element in the body, like bacteria or tissue injury.

Chronic inflammation may lead to several illnesses and conditions, including some cancers, heart disease, arthritis and tuberculosis to name just a few. Moringa contains isothiocyanates, which are phytochemicals that have been shown to reduce inflammation considerably. Additionally, moringa reduces inflammation by suppressing certain enzymes and proteins in the body.

Moringa Can Lower Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty substance that is carried around the body in the blood. Total cholesterol is a reading of the good (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL). High cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease. Studies have shown that moringa may have cardiotonic and cholesterol-lowering effects.

The Bottom Line

Moringa is a highly nutritious plant that has been shown to promote several healing health benefits and has been used to combat malnutrition and iron deficiencies. It has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Modern medicine uses this wondrous plant in order to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that moringa may have cardiotonic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
