The Antibiotic Principle of Seeds of Moringa oleifera and Moringa stenopetala

Author(s): Eilert U, B Wolters, and A Nahrstedt
Published in: Journal of Medicinal Plant Research.   Jan 1, 1981
42 55-61

The leaves, roots, and seeds of Moringa oleifera and M. stenopetala have a long tradition of use in folk medicine. In the Sudan, powdered seeds of M. oleifera have been used in water purification. This paper reports on the findings of the antibiotic principle of the seeds of M. oleifera and M. stenopetala through their purification, elucidation, and antimicrobial properties, and on the antibiotic substance of the roots of M. oleifera. Tests revealed one active antimicrobial agent present in the seeds of both species. Defatted and shell free seeds of each species contain 8-10% of this antimicrobial agent. Only the roots of M. oleifera contain this compound, and asorbic acid must be added during water extraction. Applying 0.2 g/l of powdered M. stenopetala seeds for water purification will help coagulation and will have an effect against microorganisms present.
