Hello,

just recently I have read a little about the moringa tree and it's many different uses around the world.

Moringa supposedly has some of the highest concentrations of nutrients out of any plant known to man.

Can anyone here confirm or deny this?

I have setup a blog at http://www.Moringablog.Com in an effort to help educate the population on the uses of this amazing tree.

If you have any personal moringa experiences or feel you have something to add to our blog please do.

Thanks for your help!

Moringa is a miracle
Moringa and Your Heart Researchers have discovered at least 19 specific nutritional compounds in Moringa Oleifera to benefit cardiovascular and heart health. Moringa’s heart healthy nutrients include Alpha-carotene, Beta-carotene, Beta-sitosterol, Carotenoids, Chlorophyll, Cystine, EFAs, Flavonoids, Glutathione, Methionine, Niacin, Niaziminins A & B, Quercetin, Selenium, Vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, C, E.
Moringa also includes an impressive amount of 25 supreme antioxidants to prevent free radical damage. Destroying free radicals may help fight cancer, heart disease and stroke, researchers believe.
Moringa is also valued for its medicinal properties as Indian, Nigerian, and Pakistani researchers have isolated Moringa’s compounds that show hypotensive activity; indeed, in many countries Moringa is used to treat high blood pressure

Early in November 2007, my family discovered that our dear mother, after a routine procedure of examining her breast and feeling an unusual lump, the doctors had discovered a rare form of Sarcoma Cancer. In January 2007, they immediately did a biopsy and determined through further tests she had an aggressive cancer attacking her body.

Within a week, she had her first mastectomy. Our mother was prescribed to have the highest doses of Chemo Therapy. Unfortunately, these lasted an average of 2 weeks in hospital stays and 2-3 weeks out as a result of serious complications of anemia, infections, neutropinia, blood transfusions, home health care and consistent IV treatments. A total of 7 surgeries!
This was almost a 6months of multiple surgeries, X-Rays, Chemo and Radiation. The doctors had no option but to dig into her chest cavity, take out a rib, a part of her sternum, fillet her back lateral muscle and take skin graphs from her left leg to enable her own skin to fill in the her chest due to the skin and flesh now missing from the previous surgeries. The surgery and loss of significant blood led her to have a blood transfusion, caused her anemia, fatigue, vomiting and neutropinia.

There were only two choices, continue radiation OR focus on quality of life. The family discussed this at length and asked us to fast and pray for an answer.
During this time, a friend consulting for Zija has also learned about the Moringa Plant. Ken Brailsford, the founder, had discovered that this plant has extensive medical research stating that the Moringa plant had cancer killing properties and it was naturally packed with a wealth of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and chlorophyll to help strengthen and detoxify immune systems, help with anemia and also known to assist at a cellular level to kill cancer cells and replenish from the inside and out, as tested in some albino rats.

My mother started the first samples in early July, A month or so passed and the doctors felt she was making a great progress post-surgery. They were impressed with her skin graphs; the back and chest were without the infection she had battled with her previous 7 surgeries.

In early September, they had a "PET" scan, which goes to the cellular level of a human body to determine cellular growth. During this time, the doctors found it unusual that they had not detected any "cancer" cells.

They immediately scanned for other areas of her body, specifically her right breast that had a lump and right kneecap where there WERE "non-cancerous" cysts. They were UNABLE to detect these cysts in her knee OR the other lump in her right breast. These cysts had decreased to almost nothing. They literally had dissolved away and vanished from her torn body. It's a good thing they had prior X-rays, otherwise they would had probably not believed these results otherwise. The doctors were surprised, but yet excited and indicated to her that whatever she was doing she needed to continue doing. She told told my that she strongly felt he was led to Zija to provide her a second chance at life!

Now, we don't say this is a cancer “cure”, but for her it was enough to regain her immune system, strength and life back...and now feel compelled to share this with others, in hopes that it may help them with their illness…and give them a second chance at life!

moringa no doubt, amazing
I agree with you about the nutritious properties moringa provides. It is little known but soon will come into it's own as the most potent nutritional supplement available anywhere. But what if you combined 2 other supplements that help enhance the power of moringa, like aloe vera and pomegranate. Pomegranate will supply you with some more antioxidants and have you noticed lately they seem to be putting it into everything but more importantly is aloe vera. aloe vera had the ability to enhance the affects of other supplements like moringa without ant side effects. It also builds your immune system and provides disease preventative properties and you won't find a better solution for any digestive problems. After using moringa powder fort a couple months, I was amazed by the benefits of what moringa was doing for me. I sleep better, my high blood pressure is at a much lower rate than it has ever been and I just feel healthier all around but I was still having problems with acid reflux. then I found a product that had moringa and aloe vera combined with pomegranate juice. Now after 2 months of taking it my acid reflux is gone and I am still benefiting from the moringa. When my friend told me about poga moonga juice, I was skeptical because I was already having great success with moringa. So I just tried to take aloe for my digestive problems but aloe isn’t very good tasting, so I tried his stuff and it was very tasty. So now I take that every n morning and take moringa capsules (moringa powder) and I feel amazing. Every morning 2 oz shoot of juice and 1 moringa capsule and I'm set for the day. But the best part is I get both from the same company, which makes it so easy to get my daily supplements.

moringa as treatment to lung cancer
Hello,

My uncle has stage 4 lung cancer and had been undergoing chemotherapy. I want him to try moringa capsules because I have read in the internet that it can improve his condition because of its medicinal benefits. I bought bottles of Moringa leaves and roots capsules for him. My question is, what is the advisable dosage for a cancer patient like him and what is the suggested intake?

Moringa dosage
Hello,
My family uses a product of Moringa for different medical conditions for the past year and love it. I know your uncle will do very well with this product. Moringa has given my mother a second chance in life and has been a crusader since then.

Either way, you have made the right decision with Moringa, this plant is being researched in most western labs and is going to be next big thing in the medical world.

Good luck with your uncle and wish you all the best.

All Moringa products are not the same. To get the full nutrition, you need ALL the beneficial parts of the tree which include the leaf, the fruit, and the seed. If you are getting it in capsule form, it probably isn't enough, and gram for gram it is much more expensive that way.

Thank you for the valuable information. After I read about how NGO and humanitarian relief organisation like Tree for life International, Church World Service as well as Buddhist Compassion Relief use Moringa to create jobs and combat malnutrition for the less fortunate, I am very touch. It is certainly very exciting to know that it contains 92 nutrients and 46 types of antioxidants, as well as having 7 times the Vitamin C of Oranges, 4 times the Vitamin A of Carrots, 4 times the Calcium of Milk, 2 times the Protein of Yogurt and 3 times the Potassium of Bananas.

Where did you find those facts? Because Church World Service and National Institute of Nutrition, India Council of Medical Research shows these datas:

Vit C: orange[53mg], Moringa[52mg]
Vit A: carrots[8.3mg], Moringa[0.4mg]
Calcium: Milk[300mg], Moringa[185mg]
Protein: yogurt[8g], Moringa[9.4g]
Potassium: banana[358mg], Moringa[337mg]

The leaves are up to par with orange, yogurt, and bananas, but nothing near your claims.
