The miraculous moringa leaves offer multiple health benefits. Consuming one cup of fresh, chopped leaves (21 grams) supports in building body cells, fighting a host of illnesses including colds and flu, shields against eye disease, skin disease, heart ailments, diarrhoea, and many other diseases, says Nadine Aoun, Clinical Dietician at Medcare Women & Children Hospital.

‘Moringa is rich in antioxidants that act against free radicals in your body. High levels of free radicals may cause oxidative stress, associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

‘Moringa leaves are also highly nutritious and should be beneficial for people who are lacking in essential nutrients,’ she adds.
