Most of the people suffering from diabetes were unaware of the disease, when they recognized the disorder it becomes more complicated. The food which is ingested is converted to glucose for the cell function. Glucose needs assistance from insulin in order to penetrate the cell walls as it can’t enter alone. Insulin therefore acts as a regulator of glucose metabolism in the body. If insulin is lacking or it becomes insensitive it will lead to diabetes. Untreated diabetes will lead to complications such as retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy, cardiovascular problems etc. Moringa leaves have 4 times more Beta-Carotene than that of carrots, 17 times more calcium than that of milk and 25 times more iron than that of Spinach. Moringa Leaves and pods contain 90+ nutrients and 46 antioxidants. Moringa leaves have more antioxidants than the green leaves.
Measurement of the of these pigments as a function of photosynthetic output makes it clear that the are the most important, but that beta carotene contributes.
