07 Apr How Can Moringa Help Those Suffering With Cancer?
Moringa Oleifera, known as the “Miracle Tree, is often described as the world’s most nutritious plant.
Moringa has been shown in studies to have an anti-tumour capacity due to the benzyl isothiocyanate that it contains. There are many studies that have shown benzyl isothiocyanate to have anti-cancer and chemoprotective capabilities. (Studies have ranged from looking at leukaemia to breast and pancreatic cancer.) This chemoprotective aspect is critical for those who are battling cancer as it helps to strengthen cells so that they can tolerate chemotherapy. Incidentally, isothiocyanates are found abundantly in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower.
Apart from the isothiocyanate, moringa contains an impressive 90-plus nutrients, including some 46 antioxidants, 20 amino acids including all the essential ones, vitamins and minerals, chlorophyll, anti-inflammatories, antibacterials and Omega fatty acids 3-6-9. All of these promote a healthy and strong body, giving it the tools it needs to fight cancer and prevent an environment conducive to cancer. Moringa is known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antioxidant, anti-allergenic, and pain relief uses. It has also been put to use to fight a variety of infections.
