Is anyone here familiar with it, and is it a useful supplement or is it hype? Well, as familiar as Google allows anyone to be....Moringa oleifera turns out to be the horseradish tree, one of the most widely cultivated food plants in the world, I've learned, and extracts from which have been used in several prominent traditional medical/healthcare systems. Turning not to google but to the American Botanical Council, which I belong to, they have a number of pieces written on moringa, and surveys of the highly interesting research that's been done. This summary from one of the pieces I read gives a sense of what a rigorous academic organization devoted to promoting sound knowledge and exposing fraud has been able to conclude:"The horseradish tree possesses many biological activities and medicinal uses. Further investigation of these properties, including antitumor and anticancer activities and constituents, and antispasmodic, diuretic, and hepatoprotective effects, is warranted. In addition, further investigation of horseradish tree seeds' coagulant effect and the use of the leaves as a protein source is also warranted."Seems to be another one of those MLM schemes like Mona Vie etc.Only if you buy from that particular source. Moringa supplements are manufactured by a variety of companies. That's when google is truly handy. Come up with a bunch of them in 2 seconds flat.sheila
