Moringa olifeira, the common called malunggay show great promise in lowering and regulating blood sugar levels. The research team used Malunggay Capsules, the purest form of the herb in a medium that could be taken conveniently and in carefully measured doses.

Dr. Rainier Nery Mozo and Imelda Caole-Ang, said that an extract derived from malunggay was instrumental in reducing Hemoglobin A1c, a key indicator in the level of blood glucose.

Malunggay also played a role in the reduction of what is known as C-reactive protein (hsCRP), the presence of which in the body is an indication of inflammatory conditions of the internal organs such as diabetes.

Malunggay consumption improves glucose metabolism and decreases insulin resistance, enabling diabetics to lead healthier lives.
