Moringa and Psoriasis – All You Need to Know
The word Psoriasis, used to refer to the often debilitating skin condition, comes from the Greek word ‘psora’ meaning itch. Affecting 2-4% of the world’s population, these red, scaly patches can be a lifelong problem. Psoriasis is a common, chronic skin disease that affects the life cycle of skin cells.
Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful. Itching may be severe, and scratching the rash can make it even itchier and cause more inflammation. Once the skin barrier is broken, the skin can become infected by opportunistic bacteria.
But this disease causes more than superficial problems. Psoriasis has been found to increase risk of cancer as well as heart disease. In fact there are several other health risks associated with Psoriasis.
If you are looking for a natural alternative to combat psoriasis, you could try Moringa.
Moringa is an efficacious, natural supplement to boost your skin’s health.
Moringa for Healthy Skin
Traditional cultures across the world including India, the Philippines, Haiti and various African nations have long used Moringa in their local remedies. Every part of this plant, dubbed the ‘Tree of Life’, has been used effectively to treat varying ailments.
While psoriasis is a genetic disease that can vary in severity, natural remedies have been effective in controlling its impact. The often recurring patches and plaques spread across the body can cause severe itching to those afflicted.Non Steroidal Relief - 100% Herbal
Moringa is naturally loaded with 46 antioxidants, 36 anti-inflammatories and also possesses antibacterial properties that can help to healing chronic inflammation conditions such as the itchy, broken skin.
Modern research reveals that Moringa contains bioactive compounds such as moringine, moringinine, oleic acid, thiocarbamates and isothiocyanate glycosides, all of which can help induce healthy skin in psoriasis patients. Researchers have also isolated a compound from Moringa extracts called ‘Purisoft’ which has been found to improve overall skin texture and health.
Nutrition, Psoriasis and Moringa
Studies have also revealed the importance of right nutrition in tackling symptoms of psoriasis. Vitamin B supplementation, fish oil, trace elements like selenium and more have been found to help in reducing the severity of symptoms. Moringa is a nutritional power house and is packed with vitamins including vitamin B, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and other nutritive elements, which could help you combat psoriasis.
