Moringa Oleifera Kills 97% of Pancreatic Cancer Cells in Vitro: A hot-water extract of moringa leaves was shown to kill up to 97% of human pancreatic cancer cells (Panc-1) after 72 hours in this study. Moringa, also called the “miracle tree,” has a long history of use in traditional and Ayurvedic medicine due to its many beneficial properties as an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antidepressant, anti-diabetes, pain and fever reducer and even relief from asthma. But it also contains numerous powerful anti-cancer compounds such as kaempferol, rhamnetin, isoquercetin and others. Latest research is now proving out moringa’s anti-cancer potential with positive results so far against ovarian cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and melanoma. Moringa is now extensively cultivated throughout Southeast Asia, Oceania, the Caribbean and Central America, but the largest crop in the world is produced by India – where it grows natively. That may be one reason why the death rate from pancreatic cancer in India is a stunning 84% lower than in the United States.
