We just discovered an amazing report about Moringa, courtesy of our friends over at The Eden Prescription. In 2013 scientists reported in a paper published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine (A peer-reviewed, open access journal) that A hot-water extract of the leaves of Moringa Oleifera killed up to 97% of human pancreatic cancer cells (Panc-1) after 72 hours in lab tests. Moringa leaf extract inhibited the growth of all pancreatic cell lines tested. [1]

Pancreatic cancer is very serious, one of the worst. Fewer than 6% patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas live five years after diagnosis. The typical treatment is currently chemotherapy.

Called the “miracle tree” on account of its many virtues, Moringa is very well known in India, parts of Africa, the Philippines and several other countries, yet it is relatively unknown in countries such as the USA. However it seems from the current buzz around it that it may well soon experience a rise to new popularity. It has a long history of use in traditional medicine due to its properties as an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antidepressant, anti-diabetes, pain and fever reducer and even asthma treatment. We’ve dedicated a full page on our site to a detailed herbal report on the amazing Moringa and those interested in herbalism would do well to investigate this plant.

It also contains numerous powerful anti-cancer compounds such as kaempferol, rhamnetin and isoquercetin. Now, researchers are discovering that Moringa has anti-cancer potential with positive results so far against ovarian cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and melanoma in lab tests. A list of these studies can be seen on Pubmed here.

Please note that it’s a long way before Moringa can be claimed as a cancer cure, but this kind of study is important because it indicates the potential for a starting point for a medicine of the future. It’s especially interesting because Moringa is already in common use – not only in herbalism but in a wide variety of other applications.

Moringa is now extensively cultivated throughout Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Central America, but the largest Moringa crop in the world is produced by India – where it grows natively. It’s fascinating to note that may be one reason why the death rate from pancreatic cancer in India is a stunning 84% lower than in the United States! Moringa supplements are available online.

Note – as always, this article is not medical advice nor a substitute for consultation with a medical professional.

Note 2 – “In Vitro” literally means “In Glassware” and is the Latin expression to denote that the tests were done on cell cultures in a lab, as opposed to “In Vivo” which means tested on living creatures. Such studies indicate preliminary success but much more research will be needed to “prove” efficacy in humans. Though the huge disparity in pancreatic cancer rates in India is highly encouraging.

    realy moringa leave preper with stew is sooo delicious

  • By Crescendo OfpeaceFarm, May 8, 2014 @ 11:28 pm

    I grew moringa for many years in the Tampa Bay area, and I highly recommend that people grow their own, rather than taking supplements, as the fresh leaves are far superior to freeze dried.

    Moringa is easily grown by seeds, which are readily available online, and, although it is not cold tolerant, in northern climes it can either be treated as an annual or overwintered indoors.

    Moringa oleifera is a highly useful small tree, as not only are the leaves highly nutritious and medicinal, but nearly the whole tree can be used. The roots are commonly used as a substitute for horseradish, hence its common name “horseradish tree,” though they are best eaten in moderation.

    The large, white fragrant flowers are edible, and often battered and fried as fritters; and the seedpods, called drumsticks, are eaten pod and all as a highly nutritious vegetable, usually steamed or chopped and added to soups and stews. Moringa oleifera is also called “drumstick tree” as a result.

    The leaves are usually used fresh; for human consumption, entire branches are cut, and the small leaves are easily stripped from the branches for use fresh, cooked or dried and ground into a powder, to be added to foods to increase their nutritional value. Powdered moringa leaves can be easily added to smoothies for a nutritional boost.

    For animal fodder, branches are cut and usually given to the animals whole, and they are beloved by livestock as varied as cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, poultry and even fish: Morning Star Fishermen, Inc., a faith based organization in Dade City, Florida, that teaches people all over the world how to grow fish and vegetables using aquaponics, often feeds their tilapia with moringa branches.

    Moringa seeds are nutritious and, when pressed, yield a high grade vegetable oil for cooking, leaving the pressed cake as a high-quality addition to animal feed. The pressed cake can also be dehydrated, ground to a powder and added to breads and baked goods. The seeds are also commonly used in India and Africa, where it is native, to purify water – there are substances in the moringa seed that, when crushed and added to water, cause any particulate matter to fall to the bottom, leaving clean water to be poured off the top. It would seem logical and advisable for modern water treatment facilities to use moringa seeds in the first stages of water purification.

    For those in subtropical to tropical climes, moringa can be grown outdoors, where it quickly becomes a rather graceful small tree. In Tampa Bay, our occasional freezes killed unprotected moringa to the ground, but it would come back from the roots the following spring. In Miami, and other truly tropical locales, moringa is often used as a living fence, topped off at around five or six feet, and in this way it can be incredibly productive – every branch thus cut can be rooted to become another tree, and trimming the hedge stimulates further growth.

    please be aware that there are other varieties of moringa, so if you are purchasing seed, make certain that you are purchasing Moringa oleifera, as the other varieties do not all have the same properties.

    @Crescendo OfpeaceFarm absolute star comment, thanks so much for your helpful input 🙂

    I forgot to mention that moringa, along with chaya, has among the highest protein content among green leafy vegetables – as much as 50% protein in the dried leaf by weight, according to some sources.

    This makes it a fabulous addition to the diet for vegetarians and vegans, and for those who are unable to process protein from animal sources.

    Thank you for this article. No mention of Moringa in Africa!! I have it growing wild in my garden here in Zambia. Thank you to Crescendo OfpeaceFarm for your interesting input. Moringa is also good for purifing water. I’d love to know how to prepare the pods as a vegetable!
