For blood pressure
According to a study carry out by the department of pharmacology of Khon Kaen, moringa could alleviate blood pressure. Important nutrients needed by a person with high blood pressure are calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and vitamin and Moringa contains all these elements. Moringa contains vitamin C which helps support the body’s production of nitric oxide, which is essential for the normal functioning of blood vessels. Calcium is needed for smooth muscle relaxation and contraction, Moringa consumption has a direct effect on blood vessels
The potassium content of Moringa is 15 times higher than banana. Potassium works by increasing the excretion of sodium in the urine, which helps the blood vessels to dilate, and modifies the interactions of hormones that influence blood pressure. Moringa also contains magnesium, zinc, vitamin E, and nutrients that help lower blood pressure. Moringa helps diabetic patients control their blood glucose levels.
Moringa For hair growth
While benefiting our body internally, Moringa seeds can also benefit the hair. Vitamin C present in the seed can encourage and improve blood circulation in the scalp to help hair follicles grow and strengthen. This results in a healthier hair. To use moringa for hair growth you have to either use the oil or the powder that you will mix with any essential oil.
Zinc and vitamin A also promote hair growth. While nourishing the capillary tissue and repairing the cells, the zinc maintains the sebaceous glands (glands present in the skin, attached to the hair, secreting the sebum which limits the drying of the skin, plays a bactericidal role and lubricates the hair) discarded so that the follicles can absorb as much nutrients as possible.
The oils extracted from the seeds can be used as a shampoo to soothe itchy scalps and to get rid of dandruff.
Moringa For skin
Oil is extracted from moringa seeds to make many cosmetic products. The oils contain up to thirty antioxidants and a surplus of vitamin A which makes them the ideal choice for skin products. Vitamin A firms the skin, giving it a rejuvenated appearance, and fights against the signs of aging and stress. This is made possible by promoting the formation of collagen between the cells of the skin.
Oils that are also known as “Ben oil” make up 40% of the seeds. They are colorless, odorless and have a mild flavor. The skin absorbs the oil without saturation on the surface of the skin while receiving all the nutritional qualities that the oil has to offer. This benefit has been backed up by the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences whose findings proved that moringa cream can be good facial revitalizer. The oil works as a moisturizer and as an antiseptic cleanser that removes acne, pimples and blackheads. To use on the face, just apply a few drops on the skin and massage, just as with any moisturizer or massage oil.
To sum up, moringa products have proven throughout the years to be a solution to must heath disorders. Consuming moringa, whether as tea, oil or powder could just be that solution to your health problem, so why waste time on getting it?
