Seeds from Moringa oleifera trees used to purify water.
But Moringa Seeds are also used for Medicinal uses and has many benefits.
Uppsala University leads a research group which has discovered that seed material can give a more efficient purification process than conventional synthetic materials in use today.
This international collaboration used research facilities including neutron scattering instruments at the Institut Laue-Langevin in France and the NIST Center for Neutron Research in the USA.Read more at:http://phys.org/news/2013-12-seeds-moringa-oleifera-trees-purify.html
Oleic Acid, Moringa seeds are rich in Oleic acid, a mono unsaturated fatty acid. Oleic acid is typically associated with olive oil, as the latter is one of the main sources of this unsaturated fat in the diet.
Micro-nutrients, Moringa seeds are rich in the vitamins A and C and the mineral iron. Vitamin A is important for eye health and night vision, healthy skin, hair and nails and cell growth. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that protects you from the damaging effects of free radicals. It is also important in wound healing, immune function and collagen synthesis. Iron is an important component of red blood cells and a low intake causes iron-deficiency anaemia.
Antibacterial Effect. The June 2010 issue of “Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de Sao Paulo” reported that researchers have discovered that extracts from the Moringa seeds have antibacterial effects. In this study, the extract exhibited a bactericidal effect against Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio cholerae and Escherichia coli. This gives credence to the use of Moringa seeds and leaves as an antiseptic in traditional medicine.
Larvicidal Effect. A similar study, reported in the June 2009 issue of “Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciencias,” investigated the larvicidal effect of Moringa seed extract. The researchers found that this extract was toxic to the larvae of the yellow fever mosquito, an insect that spreads a number of diseases. On the other hand it was found that the extract was harmless to rats. The authors conclude that the seeds and their extract could be used in mosquito control programs.
