Moringa oleifera

Soil Augmentation with Moringa oleifera Lam. Leaf Materials for Assessment of Pod Yield, Nitrate Reductase Activity and Proximate Fractions of Bambara Groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.

Application of dry ground leaves of Moringa oleifera (Lam.) as soil nutrient augment for the productive assessment of seven accessions of bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) was studied. The experimental pots (containing 4 kg of soil) were treated with 0 g (control), 10 g, 20 g and 35 g of dry powdered leaves in three replicates, arranged as completely randomised block design. Data collected include percent germination, number of days to flower bud formation, number of flower buds and flowers formed, number of pods produced per plant and 100-pod fresh and dry weights.

Various parts of Moringa oleifera ameliorate Phenylhydrazine-Induced Spleen toxicity in Male Wistar Rats

The toxicity of sickle cell anaemia maintenance drugs makes medicinal plants viable alternatives. The protective roles of Moringa oleifera (MO) parts (Bark, flower, leaf, root and seed) against phenylhydrazine (PHZ) induced spleen toxicity and oxidative stress in rats were carried out. Splenomegaly was observed in anaemic rats and was reversed by M. oleifera parts, particularly the flower and roots. The M.
