Moringa contains the full spectrum of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, known as the omegas. In fact, ounce for ounce, dried Moringa leaves contain 10 times the omega 3's found in salmon
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid that plays an important role in cell health, blood clotting, immune function, and in reducing inflammation throughout the body - in blood vessels, joints, and elsewhere. Eating foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids can help lower the risk of diseases such as heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, cancer, depression, as well as lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol. omega 3s, like omega 6s, cannot be produced in the body; they must be obtained by dietary sources. .
Omega 6 is an essential fatty acid thought to reduce the risk of heart disease, lower total cholesterol levels, specifically targeting “bad” LDL cholesterol, while raising “good” HDL cholesterol levels. Omega 6 may also reduce the risk of some forms of cancer.
Omega 9 fatty acids, commonly known as monounsaturated fatty acids, offer important health benefits. Research has shown that Omega 9s are protective against metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease. Because Omega 9 fatty acids have been shown to increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol and decrease LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, they play an important role in reducing plaque buildup in the arteries, reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
