The leaves of the Moringa oleifera are of much nutritional value to humans. In order to test the possibility of the leaves treating liver disease, a study was completed with Wistar rats at Rajah Muthiah Medical College in India.

The experiment began with the collection of fresh Moringa leaves which were then extracted with ethanol. The participants, male Wistar rats, were then divided into six groups of six. Each group was given a different percentage of the extract per their body weight, with the first group recieving no extract.

Researchers found that the extract lowers several chemicals within the rats including liver lipids. It does, however, simultaneously enhance antioxidants within the rat.
