Moringa Oleifera – Alternative Medicine for Lupus?
The Moringa oleifera tree is now considered by many to be a miracle tree for its medicinal benefits. The leaves of the trees are typically used to make Moringa extract, which contains anti-inflammatory properties. It is also known to contain antitoxins and antioxidants and is full of essential vitamins, nutrients and amino acids that help boost the body’s immune system. Obviously because of these benefits, Moringa is now recognized by many organizations including the World Health Organization, the European Union and other NGOs around the world. Many countries including the Philippines and Africa cultivate these trees for the production of bulk and wholesale moringa oil and moringa powder as raw materials for medicines, cosmetic products and to combat malnutrition.
One of Moringa’s most important functions is to suppress the COX-2 enzyme, which causes the inflammation and pain that the body experiences when it is produced in the body. And that’s where its application to combat lupus comes in. Lupus erythematossus is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that affects multiple parts of the body—kidneys, joints, and skin. There is no exact causal factor for this disease, but it is known that it can affect anyone of any age and can be fatal. Also, the pain of producing the COX-2 enzyme, especially during constant flare-ups, could be hard to endure.
Nobody really knows what triggers these flare-ups, and many lupus sufferers are constantly trying to figure out how to avoid them. This means that sufferers must avoid sunlight and eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The lifestyle of those suffering from lupus can be very expensive due to the many medications they have to take to suppress the disease. Moringa Oleifera helps patients in terms of nutrition and alternative medicines. Because it contains natural anti-inflammatory properties, it is considered safer over the long term than the NSAIDs, which can be addictive or cause some unwanted side effects.
The drugs that lupus sufferers endure can cause numerous kidney, circulatory, digestive problems and many other complications. Ingesting Moringa leaves in food and as a supplement is not only less toxic, but also more effective. There are now numerous products containing this wonder herb, and those who constantly need it in their diet, such as those suffering from lupus, can buy bulk moringa leaves, powder and other products online.
