Is Moringa Good For Diabetes?

September 14, 2019


Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com,
researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, is
moringa good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you
download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping
guide (foods to eat and avoid) by clicking the link below. When I got this question I, like many of you,
first had to ask myself, “What is moringa?” So a little research and I found that moringa
is a tree which is actually the Moringa Oleifera, but many just call it moringa. And practically every part of it are edible. Some people utlize the pods in cooking, while
others use the leaves. Oils can be pressed from the seeds and the
roots are also edible. AND, this tree’s flowers are considered
delicious with a mushroom-like texture and flavor. It is native to Northern India but it is also
found in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa, and Taiwan. I found some people who call it the “horseradish
tree” because of the flavor of the roots and other parts of the tree. Lately it is being called the “mystical
miracle tree” with claims of curing many diseases. In one serving of Moringa Oleifera leaves,
you can find: 22% daily value of Vitamin C, 41% daily value
of Potassium, 61% daily value of Magnesium, 71% daily value of Iron, 125% daily value
of Calcium, 272% daily value of Vitamin A, 92 Nutrients, 46 Antioxidants, 36 Anti-Inflammatories,
18 Amino Acids, 9 Essential Amino Acids. That is a lot! And it sounds very good so far! A 2015 study at Addis Ababa University in
Ethiopia concluded that extracts from moringa leaves possess antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic
properties, and alleviate pancreatic damage in diabetic rats. The beneficial effects of plant material in
inhibition of diabetes-induced complications are being investigated. Another 2015 study at the King Abdulaziz University
in Saudi Arabia found that the antioxidants and flavonoids in moringa almost restored
the diabetic rats in their study to the normal healthy state. However, the Ottawa Hospital Research team
has also concluded that while these and other studies are promising, “based on the available
experimental evidence, molinga holds some therapeutic potential for chronic hyperglycemia
and hyperlipidemia. However, before it is advocated in any formulation
for the treatment of these metabolic disorders in humans, state-of-the art clinical studies
must be conducted to establish the consistency of its medicinal efficacy and the safest modalities
of its administration.” So, is moringa good for diabetes? It appears that it is safe. You can purchase supplements, leaf powder
and other extracts online and in some health food stores. Will it cure your diabetes? No. It certainly may help some to lower their
blood sugar levels and help with lipid control, but it will not make diabetes go away. I hope this answered your question is moringa
good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management

related questions. Thank you

    I've started drinking moringa tea recently and noticed that I really don't want sweets. I use to crave sweets alot but now I have to force myself to eat them. I wonder if this has anything to do with the moringa
