Studies into Moringa Oleifera and anti-aging continue to uncover more and more of its rare and miraculous properties. Appropriately, Moringa, which is also known as the Tree of Life, has been shown to be capable of slowing the aging process and as a result extending one’s lifespan.
Moringa is suited for anti-aging because as opposed to other remedies, which commonly only address the superficial symptoms of aging, Moringa deals directly with its root causes.
THE TWO PRINCIPLE WAYS HOW MORINGA HELPS THE ANTI-AGING PROCESS
The first is to reduce the amount of DNA and cell damage that occurs in the first place. Most of this damage is done by the process of oxidation, which releases free radicals into our systems and can lead to cells being destroyed at a faster rate than they are created. Moringa is invaluable in combating free radicals as it is one of nature’s most powerful natural antioxidants, containing very high contents of vitamins A, C and E; And over 90 nutritional compounds, including 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds. It is no surprise that Moringa greatly benefits anti-aging as often aging and age-related disease is in fact low-grade inflammation.
The other way to slow down aging is to aid the process of cell regeneration itself. Moringa does this by containing unusually large amounts of Zeatin, which, with its potent antioxidant properties, becomes another valuable substance in the fight against premature aging. Zeatin is found in many, if not most, superior plants. However, Moringa Oleifera contains thousands times more concentrated Zeatin than any other plant known to science. Human skin cells treated with zeatin retain their functions longer and resist accumulated biochemical damage associated with aging. Zeatin is also the most potent member of the plant growth hormone family known as Cytokinins.
Cytokinins are proven to delay biochemical modifications associated with aging and to naturally speed up the growth of skin cells. Clinical studies on Cytokinins with treatment on human subjects have also demonstrated an excellent efficacy in photo-damaged skin (visible light and UV damage). As a result, the regular use of Moringa for anti-aging, both internally and as an oil, can result in younger looking skin without the use of expensive and toxic chemical lotions, harmful chemical peels or dermabrasion.
