Moringa, sulforaphane Effects on Helicobacter Pylori Infection and Stomach cancer

At the Moringaling conference in the Philippines Dr Jed Fahey spoke about Sulforaphane Effects on Helicobacter Pylori Infection.

Dr Fahey has previously done numerous experiments with Moringa.

Helicobacter Pylori is recognized as a carcinogen by the World Health Organisation.

Infected individuals have 3- to 6-fold higher risk of gastric carcinoma (STOMACH CANCER & LYMPHOMA).

Dr Fahey's studies were carried out using Broccoli Sprouts The focus was on Sulforaphane is also found in Moringa.

"Although Sulforaphane (from broccoli) and other isothiocyanates (including those from Moringa) are not direct antioxidants they activate transcription of phase 2 cytoprotective genes whose products provide chemically versatile often catalytic and prolonged indirect antioxidant protection"

"We discovered that Sulforaphane is a highly effective antibiotic against all 48 strains of H pylori tested It is equally effective against strains resistant to the 2 antibiotics most commonly used to treat H pylori infections in people"

5th Moringa Congress

5th Moringa Congress at Clark Freeport Zone, Philippines.

On the 22nd of November The Moringa Shop attended the 5th Moringa Congress in the Philippines. Hosted by Moringaling Philippines Foundation Inc.

The keynote speaker was Dr Jed W. Fahey . He is the Faculty Research Associate with Department of International Health, Bloomberg School of Public Health, John Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.

Dr Fahey has done a lot of previous work with Moringa including the Trees for Life Journal dated 2005. See The Moringa Shops Research page for the publication.

He is now working on the benefits and phytonutrients of Broccoli Sprouts. You may think what has this got to do with Moringa?
Moringa contains the same Phytonutrient as the Broccoli Sprouts that Dr Jed Fahey has been studying. These Phytonutrients found in Moringa and Broccoli Sprouts are effective for cardio care as well as anti-cancer properties. More information will be posted on the website shortly.

I would like to thank the Moringaling Philippines Foundation Inc . for putting on a great conference. It was well organised and very informative.

Product alert - Beware of cheap Moringa imitations

Moringa is a new product to Australia and I thought it essential for customers know what to look for in quality Moringa.

Moringa powder should be green in colour and have a strong fresh grassy smell. And a strong taste

A recent purchase by me of a super cheap product online costing only $35.00 per kg revealed some very poor quality Moringa coming into Australia.

The colour of the cheap product was a yellow brown colour. I have taken some photos of the inferior product and The Moringa Shop powder side by side for a comparison. These photos have not been edited or photo shopped! The product had very little smell or taste compared to the Moringa Shop Moringa powder. I could barely smell the Moringa in the cheap product compared with a strong aroma from The Moringa Shop product.

Why is some Moringa brown?

There are a number of reasons that Moringa powder can appear brown.

1.Poorly grown Moringa. Moringa can grow almost anywhere in a tropical climate. Poor soil and lack of nutrition can make the powder brown and therefore be less effective to use as a dietary supplement.

2.Poor processing. It's all well and good to grow Moringa, but how is it processed? Brown or yellow can mean that it has not been dried correctly. It's either heat treated or sundried.

3.Contamination. If the Moringa has not been processed cleanly and contains contaminants such as bacteria or mould it can change the colour of the product.

4. Poor Quality leaves. The Moringa tree will have a variety of quality and dead leaves at any given time. If old or dead leaves are used in the powder that have very little value for nutrition will make the powder brown. The Moringa Shop Products discard these leaves and add them back to the soil as fertiliser. Old leaves are not used in the making of any Moringa Shop Products.

In other words Moringa that is not green can be useless or even dangerous to use.

The Cheap Moringa I purchased was via an Australian website with the country of origan being India, I have received samples from India before and the quality has always been poor. I get bombarded by Indian companies trying to sell me products.

When I ask them for their certifications for their claimed organic status or their food handling, they go quiet.

Do your own searches for poor quality or brown Moringa. These are a couple of links for you to read that are not associated with me.

What we do and what we guarantee.
I work closely with my suppliers in Chiang Mai Thailand. I spend 3 weeks of every month in Chiang Mai and the other week in Australia. I inspect and send every shipment that they produce for me to Australia. I visit their factory on a monthly basis. I know the growers and processors which is a family business personally. ( Read the full story )

I have travelled extensively throughout South East Asia searching for professional Moringa growers and suppliers. The Moringa Shop's Moringa products are some of the best available.

Our suppliers have Thai FDA and Thai GMP licences for processing the Moringa. It's a clean well processed product.

Our Moringa is organically grown, but not certified as yet as we are working on that. It takes a minimum of 18 months to get a tree certified organic.

We guarantee our product; if you are not happy with our product simply return it for a full refund.

We have our Moringa professionally tested for vitamin, amino acid, bacteria and pesticides.

We take the sale and distribution of our Moringa seriously and we are not just after a quick buck at the expense or our customers by supplying inferior products!

Moringa, the Miracle Tree.

Finally Moringa Oleifera has got some recognition by a health professional and the show was aired in Australia.

For those who did not see the ABC program "The View" featuring Dr. Lindsey Duncan here is the webpage about the benefits of Moringa Tea and Moringa Capsules.

Moringa is popular around the world and we sell to most countries. The Australian market is extremely small due to the fact that Moringa is pretty much unknown. Until now! Sales have sky rocketed in the last few days due to the television show. This means that many more people will be exposed to the benefits of Moringa.
