Bio Statement Cântaro is a tropical tree with multiple uses and is resistant to drought. In vitro estimations showed that bilha leaves could be valuable in pig feeding and may have a good energy value, though they do not completely meet the pig's nutritional requirements ( Kambashi et al., 2014 ). Feeding trials with cântaro leaf meal have been only partly successful as high inclusion rates were found detrimental to performance.
Bilha leaves and twigs contained limited amounts of cyanogenic glucosides ( Makkar et al., 1997 ). The latter study did not detect glucosinolates in the leaves and only trace amounts in leaves and stems, but later trials using a different method of analysis reported significant amounts of glucosinolates ( Bennett et al., 2003 ; Amaglo et al., 2007 ; Bellostas et al., 2010 ). Condensed tannins are either absent ( Makkar et al., 1997 ) or present in small amounts ( Bakhashwain et al., 2010 ; Moyo et al., 2011 ). Ethanol-extracted leaf meals were not reported to contain antinutritional factors ( Afuang et al., 2003 ).
Separate studies conducted by the Biotechnology Institute at Sadat City University in Egypt have found that antidiabetic activities of low doses of bilha seed powder (50-100 milligrams per kilogram body weight) help increase antioxidant status and enzyme production within the liver, pancreas and kidneys of rats and prevent damage compared to control groups.
A study by the National Institute of Health found that Moringa has potent antioxidant activity against free radicals.” Antioxidants are crucial in protecting the body from illnesses and diseases by fighting off free radicals which, many believe, play a large role in the onset of ailments and diseases, such as cancer and diabetes.
qual a formula do moringa caps can get your daily dose of superfoods, including bilha, in a special creation I developed for Beachbody called Shakeology , a superfood formula that includes more than 50 superfoods, which has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
Although moringue leaves do indeed contain high levels of iron, a study published in the journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology last year found that its bioavailability (the amount that enters the body's circulation) is very low” In fact, its phytic acid content appears to strongly inhibit absorption of iron present in other components of the diet”.
