The Malunggay, scientifically known as Moringa Oliefera, has brought many wonders as only a few plants could have. Even the greenest leafy vegetables are no match for the droplets of malunggay leaves. Helpful amino acids are all contained in a Malunggay plant. We will discuss below the types of amino acid that are present in Moringa, as well as overviews on how these compounds are working to build up and sustain the human body.
The Isoleucine, present in the dried and powdered malunggay leaves, is the one responsible for building proteins and enzymes. It contributes ingredients to be utilized in manufacturing important biochemical components in a human body 受浸禮物. Promotion of energy and stimulation of the brain to keep it active are its major tasks. Leucine, on one hand, works with the isoleucine to develop proteins and other catalysts to enhance your body’s power and alertness.
We are very familiar with Lysine. This type of amino acid is the one responsible to insure that the human body is absorbing the right amount of calcium. It aids in forming collagen for bone cartilage and connective tissues. Lysine helps to produce antibodies, hormones and other catalysts. Balance of body nutrients is done by lysine that will enable reduction of viral growth.
The malunggay also has Methionine that becomes the supplier of sulphur in the body. It prevents skin, nail and hair problem as the lowering of cholesterol levels increases the liver’s production of lecithin. This compound reduces liver fats and protects the kidney from bladder irritation. Menawhile, Phenylalaine is producing the chemicals for signal transmission between the nerve cells and the brain. It reduces hunger pains, improve memory and keep alertness.
Furthermore, the Threonine is a vital part of enamel proteins, elastin and collagen. It assists metabolism, prevent fat build-up in the liver and is a booster of digestive system. The Tryptohyan, on the other hand, supports immune system, relief of insomnia; reduce anxiety and depression, and headaches. It will decrease the risk of artery and heart spasms. It works with lysine to reduce cholesterol.
Valine is a non-essential amino acid that can abundantly be found in Moringa. It promotes sharp mind and coordinated muscles. The building of body energy and producing antibodies is Alanine’s features. It helps in digesting sugars and organic acid of the body. Arganine also is releasing growth hormones for muscle and tissue growth. While healing your body’s wounds, it fights bacteria, virus, and tumor cells.
Moreover, aspartic acid in the malunggay gets rid of ammonia caused by cellular waste. It decreases fatigue and increase endurance, as well. In addition, the cystine is the antioxidant against radiation and pollution. It’s anti-aging, eliminate radicals and toxins. Glutamic acid on one hand is the food for the brain. It heals ulcers, fatigue and sugar cravings. Glycine in Moringa also promotes cell production for strong immune system. Histidine also combats arthritis, ulcers and anemia. Lack of it promotes poor hearing. Serine is aiding storage of glucose in the liver and muscles. Its synthesizes fatty acids around nerve fibers.
Moringa tree also known as Moringa Oleifera has been grown in India and Africa for more than two thousands years. Most parts of tree are edible, and it has many nutritional properties and medicinal properties which are unknown to western world.
This article only introduces Amino Acids found in Moringa. Human body needs twenty different Amino Acids (also call building blocks of proteins) to act as building blocks to maintain a healthy body. Eleven of them are nonessential and nine are essential. Essential Amino Acids can be obtained from diet, but our human body either cannot make them at all or cannot make them in sufficient quantity to meet its needs.
1. Isoleucine-Best known for its ability to increase endurance and help heal and repair muscle tissue and encourage clotting at the site of injury. It also keeps energy levels stable by helping to regulate blood sugar.
2. Leucine- It increases production of growth hormones, and helps burn visceral fat. It works with Isoleucine and Valine to repair muscles, regulate blood sugar, and provides the body with energy.
3. Lysine- It helps prevent outbreaks of herpes and cold sores, and is needed for hormone production and the growth and maintenance of bones.
4. Methionine- It helps body process and eliminate fat. It contains sulfur which is required to produce the body’s most abundant natural antioxidant – glutathione. It also can produce two other sulfer-containing Amino Acids-Cysteine & Taurine, which help the body to eliminate toxins, build strong and healthy tissues, promotes cardiovascular health.
