Why it works

  • Moringa leaf extract has antibiotic properties. It has been studied for use against at least Salmonella typhii and Escherichia coli.
  • Its hypotensive action, i.e. to lower blood pressure, seems to be associated with the relief of vascular dysfunction, allowing better blood flow. 
  • Chlorogenic acid, present in moringa, acts on the body's metabolism and thus helps regulate blood sugar levels.
