1. Promotes prostate health
Moringa seeds and leaves are rich in sulfur-containing compounds called glucosinolates. Glucosinolates contain anticancer properties.
As per studies moringa could help prevent Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH). This condition typically becomes more common with aging and is characterized by enlargement of the prostate, which can make urination difficult.
Moringa extract also helps reduce levels of prostate-specific antigen, a protein produced by the prostate gland. High levels of this antigen may lead to severity like prostate cancer.
2. Alleviates erectile dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection for intercouse.
The condition occurs when there’s a problem with blood flow to the men's genitals. Moringa leaves contains polyphenols, a beneficial plant compound, which may enhance blood flow by increasing nitric oxide production and decreasing blood pressure. Moringa is also immensely beneficial for high blood pressure and diabetic patients.
3. May improve fertility
Men are estimated to face infertility problems in about 40% of cases, with reduced sperm production and problems with sperm motility being among the most common causes.
Moringa leaves and seeds are excellent sources of antioxidants, which may help combat oxidative damage that can interfere with sperm production or damage sperm DNA.
4. Improve blood sugar control
Type 2 diabetes is a condition that occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough insulin or can’t efficiently use it. Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas that lowers blood sugar levels after eating.
The condition is more prevalent in men than in women. This may be because men tend to store more harmful fat around their abdominal region known as visceral fat which decreases the effectiveness of insulin, thus increasing diabetes risk.
Moringa leaf powder may lower the post-meal increase in blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. However, more research is needed in this area.
5. Can lower high cholesterol level
Having high cholesterol has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
Exercise, proper diet and certain food like flaxseeds, oats and almonds helps in controlling bad cholesterol.
Moringa’s long history of use in herbal medicine and as food suggests that the plant is likely safe.
