The Moringa family of plants is known for its medicinal value. The most widely known of these plants is the Moringa oleifera. Another tree within this family is the Moringa stenopetala. This particular plant has a great hypoglycaemic effect, as researchers found in testing the plant on rabbits. Rabbits who were not diabetic were used in this study, as to examine the plant's effects on an animal with a normal blood sugar level. This evidence can be used in testing the plant's effects on other animals, and ultimately on humans.
