The antioxidant content in moringa seeds is able to limit the oxidative stress that can lead to heart disease, heart failure, and high blood pressure. In part, the oleic acid in moringa seeds is also responsible for its antihypertensive effect and ability to reduce heart diseases. A single serving of moringa has almost three times the amount of iron as spinach. This is especially important for vegetarians/vegans and those who suffer from low-iron issues, as the body needs iron to enrich the blood and carry oxygen to our muscles, organs, and tissues.
There are also benefits of moringa seeds for diabetes and blood sugar regulation. Several studies have found that moringa seeds may reduce blood sugar levels. The scientists believe that the blood sugar-lowering effect is due to compounds like isothiocyanates.
Moringa seeds can also help treat digestive and colon problems, and they’re particularly useful for soothing peptic or gastric ulcers.
A study from 2014 found that the antioxidant properties of moringa seeds also help reduce ulcer symptoms. The moringa seeds were so potent that even low doses were effective. One study published in the Journal of Immunotoxicology in 2007 suggests that the ethanolic extract of moringa seeds possesses promising anti-arthritic properties. The anti-inflammatory activities of moringa seed extract may help treat arthritis—a degenerative joint disease that causes pain and swelling.
