High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it.
Moringa oleifera, commonly called as Drumstick plant, is a reservoir of abundant number of phytochemicals which have protective or disease preventive properties. Most nutritious part of the plant is its leaves, and is a good source of vitamin B vitamins and C. It has been reported Moringa oleifera shows antidiabetic effect. The leaf extract contains flavonoids, polyphenols, lycopene, and ß-carotene, and possessed 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities.
A study is designed to conduct effect of Moringa oleifera leaves on blood pressure among human subjects. A total of 20 males who are diagnosed with stage -1 hypertension patients with in the age group of 35- 50 years were selected in the study as cases. The participants served as self-controls. Moringa oleifera leaves juices were prepared and provided to the subjects two times in a day (15 leaves extract one time) for the period of 30 days. Diamond digital sphygmomanometer is used to take the blood pressure. The result of the study indicated that there was a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure followed by the intervention. Thus the Moringa leaf can provide desired effect as a natural control measure for high blood pressure and can be regarded as an alternative medicine. The intake of Moringa leaf, by boiling with water can effect in the regulation of high blood pressure to a normal rate. This is due to the presence of various phytochemicals like, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, anthraquinones, alkaloids and reducing sugars, triterpanoids and steroids. Among this, flavanoids being a strong antioxidant have the properties to reduce blood pressure.
Survey displays the fact that many agreed that the intake of Moringa leaf is effective than the modern medicine. The use of Moringa leaf gave a constant change; that too in a short period of time while modern medicine do not give a constant change in blood pressure reading. Modern medicine drugs are made in such a way that only the needed phytochemical content is extracted and prepared the medicine. But when we intake the leaf as a whole, many phytochemical contents present in it work together and make the action more effective. Future studies have to carry out on pharmacological studies using extracts to support the use of Moringa oleifera as a medicinal plant.
