Moringa: The Herb That Can Stop Cancer?

Moringa is an herb that I had never really heard of until quite recently.
Yet, it’s been used for many millennia by people across Africa, Asia and
India for culinary purposes (tasting something like radish). But what has
got scientists very excited is its cancer healing properties potential.
Research from the Medical University of South Carolina has found that the
plant’s cytotoxic effects that harm living cells can actually be deployed
as a weapon against cancerous cells.

Read on to learn more about this exciting medical breakthrough…

*What is Moringa?*
Moringa is a genus of flowering plants, of which there are 13 extant
species. The most cultivated and relevant Moringa tree is the *moringa
oleifera*, which is native to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains of
India. The name Moringa is thought to derive from several related local
languages and means 'drumstick', due to the appearance of the plant –
though I’m not sure if they were often used for rhythmic purposes.

You can take Moringa once a day, either in powder or capsule form. It’s
also possible to apply Moringa oil topically onto the skin to ward off skin
cancer and the growth of fungus.

*Anti-Cancer properties*
The main reason why Moringa has been getting a lot of attention among
scientific circles is due to the presence of three key compounds which are
found in the herb. Each of these has been shown in studies to inhibit,
reduce, stop or kill cancerous cells, making Moringa an incredibly potent
adversary against cancer.

*1. Kaempferol:* is an antioxidant that is also present in such healthy
foods as strawberries, teas, beans, broccoli and apples. This compound is
understood to be adept at stopping cancerous cells from spreading and
reducing inflammation.
*2. Rhamnetin: *research has suggested that this compound is able to
actually kill prostate cancer cells. It is also found in annual wormwood,
orchard grass, green veg, sweet annie and cloves.
*3. Isoquercetin: *is a compound that inhibits bladder cancer. It’s also
found in cranberries, tomatoes, onions, red grapes and cherries.

*Application against Cancer*
Aside from the above three properties, studies have found that eugenol is
also found in the leaves and bark of Moringa. This means the plant may also
be a very good anti-cancer medicine for leukemia, bone, gastric and skin
cancer. There has also been promising research conducted on mice, in
relation to liver cancer. This research has shown that oxidants in Moringa
can repair liver tissue and provide virtually complete protection.

Interestingly, these anti-cancer properties can only be extracted from the
leaves and bark. The seeds don’t seem to offer any similar medical hope.

*Other health benefits of **Moringa*
Compared to other similar foods, Moringa is amazingly nutritious. The US
Department of Agriculture advises that a single cup of chopped Moringa
leaves provides:
•    3g protein
•    19% RDA of vitamin B6
•    12% RDA of vitamin C
•    11% RDA of iron
•    9% RDA of vitamin A
•    8% RDA of magnesium
