Moringa Tree

Are There Any Side Effects Of Taking Moringa?

Moringa is considered largely safe when taken by mouth or applied on skin in appropriate doses. However, the roots and its extracts should not be consumed as it may cause certain toxic compounds to react. If you are pregnant or are breastfeeding, it is best to take your doctor’s advice, and if you do happen to take moringa, take it in very small doses; avoiding the root and it’s extracts.

How To Use Moringa?

Moringa can be taken by mouth or applied on the skin. Moringa leave are often used to make tea – just brew some dried moringa leaves in hot water – just like you prepare green tea and drink to good health. You can also dry fresh moringa leaves at room temperature for about 2 weeks and then use these dried leaves to make the very nutritious moringa tea. It is best to use mature leaves for this purpose. If you have moringa powder, dash up a refreshing and energising drink by adding half a teaspoon of moringa powder, add some honey and for that zing, squeeze a bit of lemon in water. Or simply smooth it all up by whipping up a moringa smoothie. You can also add moringa to your meals, but just enough not to spoil the flavours of the dish!

Points To Note When Buying Moringa

Moringa has gained popularity only in recent years, and with the fame the possibility of adulterating moringa cannot be ruled out. The market is flooded with various moringa extracts and it could be combined with toxins or artificial ingredients – so always buy pure moringa oleifera to derive maximum benefits. Also ensure that you stick to limited dosages- that is six grams daily for up to three weeks at a time.

According to the annals of the ayurveda, India’s old tradition of medicines, the leaves of the Moringa Tree could treat at least 300 diseases.

Moringa leaf has no proven bad effects and is absolutely safe and organic. Because of its tolerant properties, it has been given to malnourished little babies in Africa. Athletes all over the world boost their performance abilities by taking huge quantities of the leaf to keep them fit both mentally and physically. It is their secret weapon. Even for senior citizens who are losing their sharpness of mind, the Moringa tree leaf could be a great help. In fact the powder is suitable for people from any age group.

The Moringa leaf is comparatively an unheard name in spite of the fact that it has been found mentioned more than two thousand years before, and the World Health Organization has been observing and utilizing the tree for more than forty years now as a cheap health supplement in the poverty-stricken countries the world over. There is a reason behind this. The selling of all kinds of health supplements, minerals and vitamins is a lucrative business. No big company would ever take the risk of introducing a name that could potentially harm and lower the sale of all other nutritional items. The same holds true for the pharmaceutical companies too. These huge companies would prefer to keep the general public in the dark about the benefits of the Moringa leaf to make big bucks for their own benefits.

Moringa leaf boosts your energy in a natural manner, and is a remarkable source of nutrition. This energy promotion does not happen because of sugar, so it is lasts for a long time. Individuals ingesting it say that their ulcers are healed, tumors restricted, there are reduction in the arthritis pains and inflammations, controlled blood pressure, the skin problems are restored, and finally they have stronger defenses against diseases.

Another property of the Moringa leaf is its soothing ability, because of which it can lower the blood pressure and promotes good sleep. It can also purify water since it has a detoxifying effect. Also a coagulant agent, Moringa can attach itself to hazardous bacteria and other materials, a process that is surmised to occur in the body too. The happy outcome is more sustained energy without any over-activity, balanced hormone and gland system, controlled blood pressure, and a rested nervous system.

  9. I have a question? how many powerder forms of Moringa are there? I was shown a green poweder and brownish poweder. I took it for with poridge and to my surprise l have developed a pain in my heart like ulcers. When l took the green poweder it went down with a burning sunsestion like hot paper is this really moringa, because you say it heals ulcers. I also vomitted after taking it in the morning with porridge. Please reply so that l know. I was told to be taking thee green poweder in the morning and the brownish poweder in the evening.

    • I am from Malawi, and most herbal mefications have been tales of growing up.
      Here is what you must keep in mind, tyere are specific and approved (by herbalists) ways of preparing Moringa.
      The leaves are NOT to be dried on the sun directly, sjn drying has a bad effect on Moringa. Instead fresh green leaves must be allowed to dry on a shed and then it can be prepared into powder. I would suspect that the kind of powder you took was nit prepared in this manner hence it give u some buring sensation or l am not surr if they added any other herbs to the powder other than Moringa. Getwell soon to all ya!

  10. diane from California U.S. on

    I am wondering if there has been any usage of this plant for canines (dogs)). My dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma yesterday, apparently the most invasive form. It is in her liver, spleen, and throughout her lymph nodes. The Vet said she has anywhere from two weeks to eight weeks to live, her best guess. Does anyone know ow long this Moringa takes to start working? I would like to find a way to obtain some as soon as possible.
    I have also been diagnosed with aliments such as Cancer, Lyme Disease and another Ricketsea Disease. I am eager to try it too. I also have Family members with very active cases of Lyme Disease. Very little is known about Lyme Disease being in California. I have been researching natural remedies for years, and I had never heard of Moringa. I have heard that there is a plant that grows where nothing else grows that has remarkable healing Properties. I wonder if this is it?
    Is there anyone that might know someone who has any available in Southern California? Time is critical for my little dog.
    I have a Nutritionist I am working with who referred me to this product. I have Tremendous Respect for this person. He is in Virginia, United States. He said it will take about 3 days to receive it.
    Thanks for any information,

  11. Does anyone know what dosage is necessary to receive the benefits of Moringa? Is it better taken alone or is it equally beneficial when included in the contents of a meal shake of 500 mg of moringa leaf?

    • Someone who works for us told my husband that his wife could hardly move her hands/arms any more. She started to drink morninga tea. She uses 2 cups of water adding 20 leaves. Just put water and leaves to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil remove from heat. You can add honey or sweetener like agave and drink warm or let it cool off and drink. She no longer has that problem. Just google “what are the benefits of mornings” if you get a hold of seeds, plant them, it is a very fast growing tree.

  12. The name of Moringa leaves in Nigeria is Zogale. It mostly gotten in the northern part of the country. Thanks.

  13. Moringa leaves are almost available in any Filipino or Asian Oriental stores.They are called Malunggay.Look for it in the vegetable or produce section.

    Moringa is also known as Malunggay and also as the Horseradish plant.

    The leaves taste great and since taking them I am no longer passing out from fatigue for seemingly no reason at all. My localized psoriasis is also not imflamed like it was. Though it has yet to disappear, it does seem to be slowly getting better.

    I know that the seeds are the parts for purifying water, due to thier coagulant effect on pollutants, which is why people believe it will help cleanse the blood as well.

    The root is another part that is said to have its own benefits, and I even heard of it treating disentry… which is pretty incredible.

    This plant truly is remarkable and thank God for it.

    As I’ve said though, I’ve only taken the leaves and haven’t been able to take the rest, but I do have increased (that’s an understatement) energy and feel incredibly much better.

    I wouldn’t think that dosage is important, as it really is a food. It’s like eating spinach. The more you eat won’t hurt you right? I mean, you might get diahrea if you go WAY overboard but it’s really just a food, not an “herbal medicine”. But with more C than oranges, protein then yogurt, iron than spinach, etc. etc. etc. (the list goes ON and ON), it’s very amazing.

    I wouldn’t worry about dosages with anything other than the root, and maybe the seeds. Other than that, eat to your heart’s content! And enjoy!

    And I’m sure that the more taken, the more benefits derived… but basically, any amount is good and better than nothing.

    Oh, btw, I’ve heard of putting green leaves directly on psoriasis lesions as a compress of sorts. I have yet to do this, but will.

  18. Jonathan Millard on

    Oh, and Diane, …. California has MANY moringa farms. It grows great there! I’m sure taking a drive over to one of them wouldn’t be out of the question. Farmers love customers right? πŸ™‚

    Hope you and your dog are doing ok.

  19. I have a question.

    Is the moringa good for somebody who suffers from high blood pressure and skin scratching?


  20. I have been taking moringa powder as a tea every morning for the past 18 months and since then there has been no sign of my hayfever nor the winter flu nor cold. It’s great.

  21. I brought some moringa seeds back from Ghana a couple of months ago. I going to plant them in my back yard. My question is do I only use one seed per tree. I only have nine seeds to plant. Also once the tree has matured do I use the leaves of the tree and the pods. What do I do with the pods other than planting more trees? How do I create powder from the tree?

  22. Dont know about the seed planting. The trees in our backyard is from branch cuttings. Apparently when the plant takes off it doesn’t like too much water.

    I grew up in Fiji where the indian population has always used Moringa leaves as any green vegie… like you cook spinach with oil, onion, garlic and salt. Thats it. And the drumsticks we use in dhal (pea soup) or curry with potato…. Indian recipes!!!

    My mom is diabetic and she control her it by diet. She boils the Moringa leaves and eats it. Her sugar levels come down when she does that.

    And Diane hope you found Moringa in California. I know the Fiji community in CA have moringa in their backyards! hope this helps.


    My childred ages 9 and 12 yrs old is very selective when it comes to eating vegies. so I started making making pure moringa powder and all our food intake always have moringa powder. We also make delicasies with moringa particularly the polvoronez de malunggay. I observe that they become more concentrated in their studies and have strong immune system. They never got cough and colds anymore.I am nearly 50 yeras old and I can still walk non stop even 3 kilometes without getting tired. Being a widow,I could not afford to buy expensive/advetrised food supplemets in the market. With powdered moringa, I able to find peace of mind at least.Praise God for this woder tree and to the researchers and nutritionist.

    we are distributors of freeze-dried moringa condensed tea powder.our promotional activity is not only confined to marketing but also in educating people and giving them a better option to what they are traditionally taking for medication which are synthetic drugs that are actually very strong chemical compounds that is definitely harmful to ones per our experiences,we can say that our commodity,moringa freeze-dried condensed tea powder is so far very effective in addressing health concerns.we position this as TREATMENT, not just a mere supplementation.various experiences we encountered from people we monitored taking it gave us the confidence to encourage and outrightly recommend to everyone suffering from all kinds and types of degenerative diseases that it is much more powerful than synthetic medicines as it has 4 major actions working simultaneously in your DETOXIFIES,CLEANSES,TREATS and NOURISHES you all at the same time.we challenge everyone with any type of disease to take it and see for yourself how moringa condensed tea powder,claimed by scientist worldwide as THE MOST POWERFUL ANTI-OXIDANT ON EARTH will give you a very positive experience.

  25. I tried moringa for my son who has heavy metal toxicity, ( cadmium, aluminum, bio-unavailable copper) which results in scizophrenia. Also known as Wilsons disease. His high Iron levels caused anger, violence outbursts. I put him on moringa after some convincing from others. I was told he would feel remarkable in 3 weeks. It was disaterous. The Iron was to high for someone already toxic. I had high hopes. The catonic posture came back with body twitchig, yellow eyes, anger outbursts, disorganized speech. I have since put him back on kelp and pure aloe vera juice which is having a much greater effect.

  26. What a relief reading your comments have been! My mother in law just mentioned that I try moringa. I had never heard of it(though I know horseradish exists.Is it the same thing?) and thought she wanted to ‘kill me softly’.
    Stupid me! Little did I know that she wants to prolong my life with good health.Bless her.From the comments I’ve read here,it is clear that she has put me on to a winner!
    I’m going to stock up, go all the way with this herb and fedback to you guys. The comments of majority of you outweigh those who appear to have had negetive effects after using Moringa.Are there any downsides to this herb??

  27. the leaves potentials are on point cause it can remove any flambush from ur system leavin u sayin wah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but as a laaf wit a diference u can be sure to get in shape to be able to attend KOKO MANSION[4 d ladies].


    Moringa leaf is very important.It is very common and cheaf in northen Nigeria.The popular name of Moringa in Nigeria is ZOGALE (Hausa).

  29. I can’t believe this is actually a ‘superfood/awesome herb’!
    I’ve eaten this every now and then and pretty much every time loved it. It’s great with green papaya and ginger in soup.

    My grandma and mom will put this in her soup all the time. It’s an awesome Filipino soup ingredient.
    Maybe it’s the reason they’re able to stay so healthy even after eating so much meat XD.

    But yeah I love this leaf. It has such a wonderful taste, wild and strong, but not bad. So natural tasting, and the leaves are small and delicate and easy to eat!
    I’ve always known them as “Calamungay” leaves because that’s what my grandma always called them. I can see how it’s been translated into ‘Moringa’

I am healed and who does the trick? God through Moringa!

  50. I am a first time mom and I want my baby to be healthy than usual. Can I let her take moringa?

    Appreciate replies.



    I have just started using Moringa, say for about a month now. Surprisingly I have observed tremendous positive changes in my health condition. Firstly my High Blood pressure has improved greatly now almost always recording 120/75; my diabetes now recording a fasting of 6.5-7.2 vis-a-vis 9 -10 about two months ago. The most dramatic evidence occured about a week ago Tuesday 1/6/10 when I woke up with a very serious cold with my throat scalded. My wife advised I should drink the moringa tea instead of the Vitamin C tablets. As soon as I drank the tea, in less than 30 minutes the pain had disappeared in the throat and it was as if it was never there. I am shedding weight as well. Despite all these I am still watching this wonder plant. It seems the poor are at the threshold of having a God sent drug and nutritional goodies.

  52. What`s about infertility in both men and women, can Moringa be of help/benefit to them? How?? I have not read anything about such an issue.

  53. does consumption of moringa increases blood pressure as some colleaques are saying so, being a sourced from a docter.

  54. moringa or malunggay (Filipino term) is very effective for UTI, as I’ve found out. it grows like weed in the philippines; you can find it sprouting from a sidewalk! it can grow very tall and make the leaves quite difficult to reach unless you trim it. in the provinces, it is part of a family’s meal every now and then.

    it has only been recently that its benefits have been marketed to consumers. it is now produced as tea in sachets, as food additive (powder condiment), and as ingredient of foods like packaged noodles, biscuits, chips.

    the fruit is a usually foot or more long. it is prepared in a special way in the Philippines, one that includes peeling the tough exterior with a knife without peeling off all its meat away. we usually make a stew with tomatoes with it.

    the leaves have a somewhat bitter taste but it is a good kind of bitter.
    if the leaves dry up, they are still usable in meals because they soften anyway in soups and stews.

  55. why do people even need to purchase moringa tablets or supplements when they can take the leaves and boil them..or even put in their meals..they grow almost everywhere in a tropical country..

  71. About the Dong Quai for uterine fibroids as there is conflicting information please make a deeper research. Some people say they have benefited from it and others advice you not to take it when you have fibroids, endometriosis or cancer.

  72. Fibroids: these are additional herbs many people say benefited from taking it for uterine fibroids. You have to do your own reseach or consult your herbalist before using it.
    * Cat’s Claw
    * Yarrow
    * Grape fruit seeds

  75. Comrade Koleosho on

    i have used the moringa leaf for some days now, its been a wonderful healer especially for back ache. but i pray that our people will not misuse this herb or mix something else with it, because of selfish financial gains. i want to plead with people to make the local names of moringa leaf available on the net so that more people can benefit from this wonderful gift of nature to mankind

  76. this is my first time of taking Moringa Leaf Powder, my first cup was ok, with no sign of anything wrong but when i put a tea spoon of the powder in my egusi soup and ate in the afternoon, during my break time, i went back to work, at close of work i came home and ate some fried plantain and slept for the day, the next day my face was swell up around my eyes when i wake up. it this the cause of the Moringa Leaf? I guess so, what do you think?

  77. Thank you for the information on this wonderful leaf it is very educative. I am just knowing about it today. Where in Abuja can i get the leaf to buy.

    Thank you.

  78. Hay it’s really good to read about all these miraculous healings and treatments achieved by this tree and especially the leaves. Could any one please tell me if they had taken these herb for Kidney ailments and what were the results or their experience. Also where can one get these leaves in the U.K. Further is it possible to bring them into the country? and if one can how do you do that i.e. what is the process involved.

  79. I purchased this little tree at Armstrong Nursery in Huntington Beach, CA about two weeks ago. It was only about 5-6″ tall with a few leaves. In two weeks it has more than doubled in size. It is now 12″ and every day it adds a new layer of leaves. I bought it because I liked the way it looked. I had no idea what I had purchased. After reading all your stories I find it’s not just beautiful, it may be the answer to my prayers. I have fibromyalgia and am in pain most days. I have been looking for something to help with the pain other than drugs (ant-depressants). They say God works in strange ways, this just may be one of them. I will keep you posted.

  80. Please,where in Lagos can I get this miracle tree or the seed,leaves or supplement.or if you have it in your yard i can travel to any part of Nigeria to get it.Thanks

    Iam diabetic. I had a diabetic friend who we had stayed for a while without meeting. The last time we met his condition was very bad. Now that I was not seeing him around I was imagining possibly the worst -death had caught up with him. Meanwhile my sugar levels were not any better. Somehow I bumped into him and I could believe what I saw in him. He was healthy and youthful. On enquiry he told me about the wonder Moringa and he was using its dried leaves for last 2 weeks. He took me around and showed me the plant. The same I got the dried and pound dry moringa leaves and started using the that night. This brought hope to me. I googled that night about the wonder plant I DISCOVERED SO MUCH.

  85. Tomasa R. Camu on

    I was saved from apsoriatic arthritis, migraine, sinusitis, pharyngitis,hyperacidity,dysmenorrhea, anemia, skin asthma, insomnia, general weakness by Moringa, thats why i am now a manufacturer of Moringa Capsules and lots of Malunggay based products.

  86. Nelson M. Maasadee on

    Why those moringa practioners let people know the types of deseases that moringa can cure and prevent? Because I could have asked several time to know but there is no avail. As we all know that MORINGA PLANT is a very good medicine but by all means we need to know some of the name of the deseases it can cure or prevent by the PLANT {MORINGA}

  87. please never heat moringa leafes, it will destroy 70% of al nutrition cold water or your fav. drink mothing over 90 Fahrenheit deg
