Biochemical and Nutritional Analysis of the Leaf Extract of Moringa oleifera Lam
The present study was conducted to investigate the presence of biochemical contents viz., proximate and micronutrient analysis in the leaves of Moringa oleifera Lam. The biochemical contents were determined by different biochemical methods. Moringa oleifera Lam. leaves confirmed the presence of all the essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins in good amounts and possess good nutritive value. The plant leaf powders can thus be looked forward as the probable sources of food supplementation in future, after further investigation of the anti-nutritive factors present in them and their enzymatic and molecular effect on human health.
