This study evaluates the effects on taking tea prepared from Moringa oleifera Lam. on blood sugar levels in humans. Two groups of individuals were tested – people with normal fasting blood sugar levels (60-120 mg/dl) and those with hyperglycemic fasting blood sugar levels (>120 mg/dl). Among the 43 patients tested, 30 belonged to the normal group and 13 to the hyperglycemic group. Results showed that blood sugar levels of people in the normal group were not significantly changed 2 hours after taking the tea. However, for hyperglycemic individuals, the blood sugar levels significantly dropped after 2 hours. A mean drop of 28.15 mg/dl in the blood sugar levels was observed among the hyperglycemic patients. The results point to the benefit of using Moringa oleifera Lam. tea in the management of hyperglycemia.
