The Major Constituent of the Acetone Fraction of the Ethiopian Moringa stenopetala Leaves

Author(s): Asres, Kaleab
Published in: Mansoura Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences.   Aug 3, 1995
1995 11 1 pp 55-64

This study of local Ethiopian moringa plants, Moringa stenopetala, was done to affirm the Ethiopian uses of the moringa plant for treatment of diabetes and hypertension. Scientists looked for traces of rutin, a useful medicinal compound used for treatment of hypertension and radiation wounds, in M. stenopetala. What they found in these leaves was indeed a concentration of rutin, although small. It is suggested that later harvest of the leaves may increase the rutin levels in the leaves and flowers. Overall, the local medicinal uses were affirmed by the discovery of rutin in M. stenopetala leaves.
