Moringa Oleifera for Joint Pain

The wonders of the health benefits of Moringa Oleifera never cease. New information is coming to light about the benefits of Moringa Oleifera in treating joint pain related to arthritis.

Moringa Oleifera is native to northwestern India, in the southern foothills of the Himalayas. It grows well in adverse conditions, especially drought, and has excellent nutritional value in addition to all of its health benefits. As a nutritionally complete food that retains is nutrients even after being dried, it has made a huge difference in controlling and relieving malnutrition in some parts of Africa and India. It can also be a delicious, exotic meal ingredient, if that is how you choose to incorporate it into your diet. Otherwise, Moringa Oleifera is widely available in a powder that can be added to smoothies or teas, as well as in a traditional supplement capsule form.

Moringa has been used for ages in African folk medicine, and recent studies are beginning to see why it has been counted on to treat various illnesses and maladies for so many years. A study done in 2011 studied the effects of Moringa Oleifera as an analgesic for rats with arthritis. The study concluded that the methanolic extracts from Moringa Oleifera were effective in reducing arthritis pain in the rats.

Moringa Oleifera also showed promise when used in conjunction with other pain relief methods without reducing their effectiveness. The study used extracts from both the roots and leaves of Moringa Oleifera, which were administered via injection to the rats. This study is just one of the many discoveries on the effects of Moringa Oleifera on joint pain or arthritis.

Some of the most powerful testimonies of the effects of Moringa Oleifera on joint pain come from people who consume Moringa Oleifera on a regular basis. Many people who include Moringa Oleifera in their diet (whether pod, leaves, root, powder or supplement) report that within a few days, their arthritis or joint pain has significantly diminished, and in some instances, completely disappeared.

Morgina Oleifera has some of the most potent natural anti-inflammatory compounds that have been discovered by the scientific community. It also contains a high concentration of phytonutrients that assist your body’s efforts to stop the production of enzymes that bring on joint pain. The USDA has studied enzyme inhibitors such as kaempferol and quercetin, and Moringa Oleifera has them in good supply.

Not only is Moringa Oleifera rich in the phytonutrients that prevent the development of enzymes that in turn bring on joint pain and arthritis, it is also high in bioactive compounds. Moringa Oleifera is rich in carotenoids, flavonoids and polyphenols, which are beginning to show promise in studies. This suggests that they are effective at naturally reducing joint inflammation rapidly, as well as keeping joints and bones healthy.

Though some may think that Moringa Oleifera and its nutritional and medicinal properties sound too good to be true, science is catching up with the long-held belief in its health giving qualities. With each new study, science continues to reveal more and more of the benefits of Moringa Oleifera.
