effects of moringa tea

Moringa Tea with the tree leaf powder has been long used for their curative effects on liver disorders. Usage of this moringa leaves in traditional medicine around the world have revealed their unique potential in pharmacological researches. Research on these properties of leaves started with isolation of a number of active ingredients using solvent extraction. These ingredients included anti-hepato toxic constituents. These properties were studied using rat models. This herbal tea with leaf powder as the sole ingredient is helpful in detoxification. Tea or leaf powder consumption helps in the proper functioning of kidney and liver. Only if the waste disposal function is normal, the body can be fit and healthy.

People in Europe used moringa leaf extract as a liver tonic in ancient times. Recently studies in various educational and research institutions are being conducted about the effect of moringa leaves consumption. Phytotherapy with this leaf powder confirmed its use to treat wide range of liver and gall bladder conditions. These conditions include hepatitis, cirrhosis and liver conditions induced by anti tuberculosis drugs etc.

Another research revealed that moringa leaves consumption could bring reversal activity of toxic liver damage. This gave protection to the body from various potential hepato toxic agents and clinical trials proved that. A number of constituents in moringa leaves have been identified to show this protective effect on liver cells. They are known as flavones and flavo-lignins. It has been used to cure chronic uterine problems by supporting prescription drugs.

Clinical trials have been conducted with animal models for these following conditions: chronic-persistent hepatitis, chronic-aggressive hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and liver fatty degeneration. It was encouraging to found that it can cure toxic/metabolic liver disease. These conditions included both alcohol & drug induced forms.

Toxic-metabolic hepatitis and cirrhosis conditions improved after leaf powder administration. It shortened the course of viral hepatitis and minimized post hepatitis complications. It protected the liver against problems resulting from liver surgery. Thus it has become an excellent remedy for usage in prevention and treatment of many liver conditions. Earlier treatment has been found to give good results but effective treatment is possible at virtually every stage. Moringa leaves were found to arrest progress of these diseases. The constituents of leaves stimulate hepatocytes regeneration. When this leaf extract is given to the rat models, rats showed improvement. Researchers concluded that moringa is protecting liver function from the toxin.

Over the course of time, complete restoration of the liver functions is possible, with regeneration at four times the normal rate with other drugs. Moringa leaves activities upon toxic damage to liver cells are probably due to a combination of two main cellular mechanisms: one is the change in cell membranes, so that only little quantity of toxins will get into the cells; the other one is speeding up protein synthesis. This will stimulate cell regeneration in the liver.

Inhibition of ethanol induced changes by moringa are achieved through these mechanisms that include scavenging of free radicals and increases levels of both reduced and oxidized glutathione. Moringa provides liver and the body ability to handle deleterious effects of daily encounters with air- water and food-borne toxins. Using moringa oleifera leaf tea daily, offers an effective and safe approach to liver protection.
