Moringa Oil Benefits & Extraction
Moringa oil comes from the seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree, a fast growing leafy tree species native to the Himalayas. The seeds, harvested from their pods, yield approximately 35–40% of non-drying Moringa oil, also known as Ben oil or Behen oil.
Moringa seed oil is clear and odorless. Thanks to the numerous antioxidants in it, the oil does not become rancid for several years after it is produced. This makes it sought after for a number of health and beauty applications.
Although the oil is viable for use as a cooking oil, its high demand and low levels of production do not make it conducive for every day use as a dietary product. However, small amounts of oil are often used in recipes calling for a rich, nutty flavor, such as stir-fried dishes and marinades. Moringa oil is also occasionally used as a dressing for vegetables, salads, and other green dishes.
Moringa oil is among the most desired oils in the formulation of skin care products and cosmetics, chosen for its many antioxidants and documented skin-rejuvenating properties. These antioxidants do wonders for aging and nutrient-depleted skin.
With an impressive oleic acid content of 72%, Moringa oil penetrates deeply into the skin, delivering vital nutrients and also helping the skin and hair retain moisture. Moringa oil’s benefits include skin care and rejuvenation, stronger and healthier hair, wrinkle reduction and skin blemish removal. Moringa oil suppliers often have a tough time keeping up with the demand for this rare and luxurious oil.
Moringa oil is a non-drying nutty flavored oil with a clear or slightly pale yellow consistency. The healing properties have been documented for centuries, dating back to ancient cultures. It has been used in skin preparations and ointments since Egyptian times. Browse our high quality oil.
Health and Beauty
Moringa’s value has long since been known to the ancients. This may explain why the Egyptians placed vases of Moringa oil in their tombs, for use in the afterlife. It's potent antioxidant profile, which gives the oil its remarkable stability, is also the reason it’s included in some of the best skin moisturizers, anti-aging creams, and other skin health products around the world.
Moringa oil is a popular natural supplement to increase the health and strength of the hair and scalp. It can be massaged into the hair and scalp and allowed to remain there for several minutes, delivering rejuvenating vitamins and minerals to the follicles of the hair and tissue of the scalp. Regular massage with this oil can help reduce split ends and dandruff.
In similar fashion, Moringa oil–one of the most nutrient dense oils in the world–is a popular choice for many anti-aging and wrinkle reduction products. Although there are new and innovative scientific ways to reduce wrinkles and restore vitality to the skin, much of the secret to youthful skin simply lies in maintaining a healthy living environment for skin cells to live–and Moringa oil achieves this goal perfectly.
Much like wrinkles, acne is another skin condition that is well treated with a healthy environment for skin tissue. Indians have long since used Moringa oil as a means to treat acne, and now the West is discovering its uses as a natural combatant against face blemishes and skin problems.
Fragrances and Oil Blends
Another interesting application of Moringa oil is in the production of expensive and natural perfumes and fragrances. Many commercially produced perfumes are created with scents that are synthesized using chemicals. However, a portion of the perfume market still employs more traditional and natural production practices to create their perfumes, using a technique known as "enflourage". This procedure uses oils to capture the scents of natural plant materials, locking the scent molecules into the oil. Moringa oil’s high oleic level, combined with its enduring shelf life, make it a popular choice for traditional perfume production.
Because Moringa contains powerful antioxidants, it’s also included in soaps, shampoos, body washes, and skin scrubs. Moringa oil absorbs quickly into the skin, so it is a good choice for beauty products that are rinsed off the skin, such as soaps and bath scrubs.
Moringa oil can also be found in hand lotions, lip balm, and other products that target dry and flaking skin, and is a popular ingredient in blended massage oils. It is pleasant to the touch, warms well, is not sticky, and combines well with other oils and fragrances.
Extracted from the large seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree, Moringa oil is among the most exotic and highly sought out of all the world’s many oils. Many health and beauty experts consider Moringa oil the primary secret behind the healthy and radiant skin seen in Asia and Africa.

Moringa Oleifera Benefits
Moringa oleifera’s health benefits have long since been well understood and cherished by the people of Asia and Africa. The Moringa tree’s uses as a health and medicinal plant can be traced back centuries; there are documented references of it's oil being placed in the tombs of ancient Egyptians. In fact, the Moringa tree’s benefits are so significant, it has been called the Tree of Life in many cultures. What the east has long since known is now being understood by the west, as more and more people in Europe and America begin to explore the benefits of alternative healing.
Because the Moringa tree is rich in nutrients, and because the tree’s various parts can all be used, it’s many benefits vary depending on which part of the plant is being used. The young, immature Moringa oleifera pods are the most valued and widely used of all the tree parts. The pods are extremely nutritious, containing essential amino acids, forming a complete protein source, and many vitamins, minerals, co-enzymes, and antioxidants.
How can Moringa oleifera benefit you?
The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few of the many real benefits people discover when taking this amazing product:

No wonder it's is called 'Mother's Best Friend' in cultures across Africa!
- Healthy blood sugar levels - antioxidants and unique regulating compounds help control blood sugar and keep the blood free of unhealthy substances.
Just a few of the other many benefits of Moringa oleifera include increased flexibility, improved sensory perception, better sleep cycles, decreased depression and anxiety, and improved memory. It has been used to help those with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and even cancer.
Highly valued Moringa oil is extracted from the pods, and even the remaining seed cake does not go to waste. The seed cake can be used as a coagulant to clarify dirty and turbid water. It is used as an effective means of removing sediment and bacteria from water, helping to purify and treat water naturally, a useful benefit in areas where industrial water treatment is not available.
Moringa leaves are perhaps equally valuable and provide powerful benefits to anyone who is conscious of their nutrient intake. The leaves of the Moringa tree are among the most protein-dense leaves of any plant species. They also contain high levels of vitamin A comparable to carrots, calcium comparable to milk, and vitamin C comparable to oranges, as well as high amounts of other vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
Unlike factory produced synthesized pills, the Moringa leaf is crushed and inserted directly into a capsule, retaining all its nutritive value. Moringa leaves can be used in food preparation, and also brewed as a tea, either alone or in combination with other teas. Even a small glass of Moringa tea benefits the drinker with a host of nutrients.
Q: Is Moringa oleifera just another dietary fad/super food?
A: Moringa oleifera has been in use for more than 2,000 years and is a very valued plant for a wide variety of applications. It has been revered for centuries in countries in Asia and Africa for both its healing and nutritive value. It is only now being discovered in western culture as people look to nature for health and treatment. In many third world countries, it continues to form the basis for nutritional programs put into place by charitable organizations. The biggest challenge for Moringa oleifera is the “too good to be true” syndrome. It offers so much, that it is difficult to believe such a simple plant can be so useful.
Q: If it's is so good, how come I haven’t heard of it?
A: Moringa oleifera is known by over 200 names in many different countries, which adds to its anonymity. It is usually the product of tropical and sub-tropical countries, where the hardy plant survives well and provides sustenance to native people. As a result, this product hasn’t been commercially farmed and produced on an industrial scale. However, it is incorporated into many “proprietary” formulas for nutritional supplements and the oil is used in many luxurious cosmetics.
Q: With the accessibility to fresh vegetables in most shops, why is a supplement like Moringa oleifera necessary?
A: Time, not availability is usually the issue. Gyms, swimming pools and basketball courts abound, but we are more out of shape now than at any time in our history. In an ideal society, we would have the time to cook all of our meals from scratch with fresh vegetables that we can personally vouch for. However, most of us are so busy in the evenings with after-school activities, homework, travel, and chores, that meals are usually grabbed from the freezer or emptied from a can. As a result, our food is reconstituted, reheated, “enriched”, preserved, and genetically modified. We have only to look at the health of our youth, with a staggering increase in obesity, juvenile diabetes, and autism, to determine that all is not well in the world of nutrition. Our bodies were designed to get our nutrition primarily from plant sources. Balance is the key and Moringa oleifera is a naturally balanced nutritional supplement.
Q: Where is your Moringa grown?
A: They have found and nurtured several partners from tropical countries, who can meet our stringent quality control and delivery requirements. They have partners in Africa, India, and Central America.
Q: Where do you manufacture your products?
A: Their products are manufactured in the US at current Good Manufacturing Principal (cGMP) production facilities under FDA regulations. Their products are tested at the facility for cleanliness and purity before encapsulation.
Q: Do you mix other parts of the Moringa tree into your formulation?
A: Their capsules contain Moringa oleifera leaf powder. The leaf is considered the storehouse of all nutrition in the plant and theirr ingredient list consists of the leaf powder and vegetarian capsules.
Q: Is your Moringa organic?
A: While their Moringa is grown responsibly, it is not Certified Organic at this time. Unless the product can bear the USDA label (which requires certification), it is not considered “organic”.
Q: Are their products gluten and monosodium glutamate (MSG) free?
A: Yes, their products are 100% free of gluten and monosodium glutamate (MSG).
Q: I have heard that Moringa is high in calcium. Is it safe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance?
A: You have heard right. Moringa is rich in many nutrients and has a high calcium value, pound for pound, 17 times the calcium in milk. Despite this, it is safe for all to consume, including those who are lactose intolerant, as it doesn’t contain any lactose.
Q: Is your Moringa genetically modified?
A: No. Moringa oleifera is beneficial in its natural form and does not need to be genetically modified at any level. Studies in animals show genetically modified food can cause abnormalities in adults and children, and can be harmful to health. Their Moringa is grown in a natural, sustainable environment, and is pesticide, herbicide, and chemical-free, so you can rest assured it is safe to consume.
Q: How much Moringa should I take each day?
A: We recommend two capsules in the morning with breakfast and two in the evening with your evening meal. For powder, use one teaspoon twice daily.
Q: Do I need a prescription for Moringa?
A: No, you don’t. It is a completely safe and natural product, which contains ingredients your body will recognize for their nutritive value. Moringa is one of the few plants that can be consumed by the entire family. In fact the World Health Organization recommends feeding malnourished infants and children Moringa on a daily basis. If you are concerned or suffer from a medical disability, we recommend you speak to your health care practitioner before consuming Moringa products.
Q: What are some of the health benefits to consuming Moringa?
A: There are many health benefits to consuming Moringa, which is why it has earned the title of a super food, and is also sometimes known as The Miracle Tree, or the Tree of Life. While the benefits vary in degree from person to person, our customers have reported improvement in digestion, vision, energy levels, mental clarity, and overall well being. They also use Moringa to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall health and wellness supplement.
Q: Are there any side effects I may experience?
A: Moringa is chockfull of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids. According to the International Organization, Trees for Life, extensive research conducted at the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Centre in Ghana has found that it's leaf powder has no toxic elements and no side effects were observed even in families consuming high amounts of Moringa.
However, each person is unique and responds differently. If you do suffer any side effects, they may range from mild headaches and upset stomachs, to nausea. This is simply the result of toxins being eliminated from your body. Gradually, these side effects should disappear.
Q: Can Moringa cure my illness or disease?
A: Moringa is a food and nutritional supplement and does not lay claim to cure or prevent any illness or disease. The FDA approves drugs to offer these benefits. Moringa is not a drug. Many of our customers consume it to support a healthy blood sugar level, as a nutritional support for diabetes, and as an overall wellness supplement.
