Moringa is a rich source of phytochemicals such as myricetin, phenolic substances, phenolic acids, flavonoids, isothiocyanates, tannins and saponins, quercetin, zeatin and kaempferol flavonoids which are effective antioxidants that have several therapeutic benefits. It is used as a medical herb having various health benefits. Moreover, different portions of moringa such as seed, roots, buds, leaves, flowers and bark, possess various forms of biological actions, such as anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-carcinogenic, antihypertensive, anti-hyperlipidemic, antidiabetic hepatoprotective and neuroprotective activities, that helps in the treatment of different ailments. The current review highlights the medicinal, and therapeutic properties of and mechanisms of compounds extracted from Moringa oleifera also gaining new perspectives for further research and advancement....
