Moringa seeds are obtained from the pods of the moringa tree (Moringa Oleifera) or the drumstick tree. Fresh and raw moringa seeds are quite tender, but as soon as they get dried, they become hard and start resembling small beans. The grayish-white seeds with unique wing-like structures can be steamed, boiled or roasted for various purposes.
Like many other herbs, moringa seeds also offer great antioxidant benefits. They contain lots of vitamins A, C, B-complex and other free radical busters that save our body from severe oxidative damages. In other words, the antioxidant properties of the seeds can help us take care of our overall health.
Scientists have proved that the moringa seeds can reduce the amount of oxidized lipids in our body and take care of our cardiac health by safeguarding the heart tissues from constructional damages.
The anti-carcinogenic effects of moringa seeds are also quite well known. They can stop the growth and development of cancer cells by accelerating their death count. According to researchers, the intake of moringa seed powder for 3 consecutive weeks can successfully restrain colon cancer.
Moringa seeds contain plenty of zinc, which is essential for regulating the secretion of insulin hormone. As the production of insulin becomes normal, the levels of sugar also remain normal in our bloodstream. Hence, the extract of these seeds can be used as an effective anti-diabetic agent (5).
The anti-inflammatory properties of moringa seeds can curb down inflammation, reduce soreness and perk up the function of our physical joints in case of severe bone disorders like arthritis (6).
Being an excellent source of vitamin A, moringa seeds can strengthen our immune system (7), repair our mucus membrane and take optimal care of our eyes by keeping the vision intact.
Protein is one of the most essential nutrients that we need for proper functioning of our body. Moringa seeds are loaded with protein (8) and hence, we can easily fulfil our daily requirement of amino acids by including the seeds in the powdered form in our diet.
Moringa seeds contain oleic acid, a monosaturated fatty acid that is highly beneficial for our health. Being a healthy source of fat, moringa seeds can easily replace the high saturated animal fats found in our food items. They work as ‘good cholesterol’ and keep our cholesterol levels down (9). Moreover, they prevent blood clots and keep severe cardiovascular diseases at bay.
The vitamin C content present in the moringa seeds makes them amazing immunity boosters (10). From eliminating harmful free radicals to developing protection against infectious agents, they can do everything successfully.
Not only vitamins, but these seeds are also rich in vital minerals such as zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, and so on. Each of these play a unique role in ensuring our complete wellness. Iron reduces the risk of anemia, calcium keeps our teeth and bones strong, while zinc facilitates the process of sperm production (spermatogenesis)
