Abstract Share this page

Moringa oleifera Lam. syn M. pterygosperma Gaertn (Family-Moringaceae) is exemplified as a panacea for various ailments in traditional medicine. Scientific studies over a few decades have reconfirmed to the folklore claims, establishing its potential as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, antihypertensive, antioxidant and antitumor agent. Various other pharmacological attributes such as antiarthritic, antispasmodic, antiurolithic, hepatoprotective, anaphylactic, antihyperglycemic etc have also been conferred to it. The present review is an updated compilation of some important phytochemical, pharmacological and preliminary studies on M. oleifera and the principles isolated from it. The above investigations are motivational enough and demand further studies to explore its therapeutic and other possible benefits
