Legally I can present you with research showing how Moringa is being shown to benefit certain health problems.
This research presented is on Moringa and benefits for diabetes
The problem with most research studies is that Moringa leaves or pods or seeds are not given to patients in the way we would use Moringa. Those of us using Moringa are not going to get it by injection or tablets that include other factors, not pure Moringa. We are not rats. One of the studies presented is with real patients at a clinic with diabetes.
So how much Moringa powder or fresh leaves must you eat to get the same effect? There is no clue on that because of the way the Moringa was delivered to the people and the rat subjects in these research papers.
It is apparent by published research papers below that Moringa is beneficial for diabetic patients but how to achieve the same effects by eating the pure powder or fresh leaves is a question.
The only way you know is by eating it, then monitoring your blood sugar on a daily basis. Be advised that if you are taking medicine for diabetes, that you may need less of your medicine, so make sure you are monitored by a doctor while adding Moringa to your diet. Also if you are taking medicine for high blood pressure, it could affect the amount of dosage you need.
Evaluation of antidiabetic and antioxidant activity of Moringa oleifera in experimental diabetes. ( the research study in full) 2011 Pub Med
Aqueous extracts of Moringa oleifera leaves were fed to albino rats that suffering from streptozotocin-induced diabetes
Results: "At the end of the trial, the rats that were fed Moringa extracts fared far better than the control group. Specifically, the extracts reduced their fasting plasma glucose levels from 380 percent to 145 percent (i.e. their blood sugar levels were reduced by more than 2.5 times). The extract also reduced the rats' levels of harmful malondialdehyde from 385 percent to 186 percent and increased their levels of the important antioxidant, glutathione, from 22 percent to 73 percent -- a significant improvement in all three areas.
"Experimental findings clearly indicate the potential benefits of using the aqueous extract of M. oleifera leaves as a potent antidiabetic treatment," the researchers concluded.
This is still not using Moringa leaves the way we use them. The solutions in both studies are VERY potent because of the extracts given.

This is enough for you to digest today. I will do more of these blogs. I don't want to overwhelm you with information.
