Product description

Moringa (Drum stick tree) is a South Indian tree that is also now cultivated in other areas such as Africa or South America. In India Moringa is traditionally used as staple food and as "Medial Plant" as part of the Ayurvedic nutrition and therapy. All parts of the Moringa tree are traditionally used as foods in India, Moringa fruits are cooked like beans, the leaves are cooked like spinach or used for making tea, and the roots are also used for cooking or making tea. Moringa is very rich in various nutrients including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, lipids, etc. Moringa also contains various bioactive compounds including isothiocyanates and polyphenols. Moringa is also one of the new and powerful superfoods.
Gluco-Moringin (GMG) is a specific benzyl-glucosinolate in Moringa. Moringa seeds and leaves are rich in Gluco-Moringin (GMG), the seeds are lower in dangerous alkaloids compared to the leaves, and do not contain chlorophyll so the extracts are snow white. The active form of GMG is its metabolite benzyl-isothiocyanate (BITC) which shows various bioactivities, but BITC is extremely unstable as substance. Gluco-Moringin is a solid, odourless compound, which is stable at room temperature and has almost no taste, which makes it markedly different from other natural bioactive isothiocyanates such as sulforaphane for example which are volatile liquids, with a strong pungent smell and taste.
