The M. oleifera is said to have beneficial properties in any aspect of the plant, contributing to its several and usefulness as a medicinal plant. This study would include an up-to-date compilation of published research data on M. oleifera in terms of medicinal properties, phytochemical composition, and recent developments in pharmacognosy. This plant's different sections contain a profile of essential minerals, well as protein, vitamins, carotene, amino acids, and various phenolics. Zeatin, quercetin, caffeoylquinic acid, and kaempferol are all found in abundance in the Moringa plant. Aside from its powerful water purifying properties, it also has a high nutritional value.
