Plant, Phytochemical Components, Moringa oleifera, Molecular mechanisms, Biological activities


Moringa oleifera (M. oleifera) or kelor is a well-known herbal plant. M. oleifera is believed to be a magical tree because it provides tremendous benefits and is a rich source of nutrients for all living things. The potential value of M. oleifera in preventing or treating various chronic diseases is enhanced. There are still scattered details about phytochemical and usability components and their molecular mechanisms. The purpose of this article is to collect the various scattered data to make it easier for readers to get the information. Thus, in this study, we discussed information comprehensively for the phytochemical components of M. oleifera and the potential benefits of biological activities. This review will give information to open the possible utilization of M. oleifera, especially for the patient's medication and/or supplementation.
