Acute Effect of Ethanolic Extract of Moringa oleifera on Haloperidol Induced Catalepsy in Mice Models

Anu Elizabeth Joy, Shyamjith M, Shankar Bhat K


Parkinson’s disease is a major neurodegenerative disorder caused due to deficiency of dopamine in the basal ganglia of the brain. The exact etiology of Parkinson’s disease still remains unclear. This CNS disorder may be caused due to oxidative stress, toxin induced free radicals, or drugs that destroys dopamine producing neuron in Substantia nigra. Catalepsy is a symptom of extrapyramidal disorders like Parkinson's disease in animals. Neuroleptic induced catalepsy is an effective animal model for screening the antiparkinsonian activity of a chemical. The results indicate that administration of haloperidol (1mg/kg, i.p) significantly induced catalepsy in Swiss albino mice, which was significantly reversed by the ethanolic extract of Moringa oleifera(200mg/kg i.p). The anticataleptic activity of Moringa oleifera can be due to its antioxidant potential or due to its effect on brain monoamines.

    I have not looked at the website yet but I will.

    I love drumstick And the leaves 

    Some years ago I read a printed article that said:

    Beg, borrow or steal but eat it.

    Deemed to be the most nutritious tree on earth.

    Unfortunately it is not available to me in my area of Canada. 

    My husband sometimes takes certified organic Moringa  leaf 760mg capsule. 

    Brand :organic Veda. Ancient Greenfield Pvt Ltd Coimbatore, India. 

    With so much attention to balancing PD medication I got distracted from this natural supplement. 

    A new attention to this wonderful tree offers a lot to PD patients. 

    Your post was a while back but it's ever valid.

    Thank you
