Numerous studies have documented the diverse and interesting pharmacological properties of Moringa oleifera using its leaves, fruits/pods and seeds, however, majority of these findings have failed to offer conclusive link between the relationships of Moringa to any particular clinical benefit. The present study investigated the phytochemical and antibacterial action of different parts of Moringa viz, leaf, seeds and pulp against pathogenic strains of E. coli and S. aureus. It was observed that leaves, seeds and pod pulp were diverse and abundant in phenols, flavonoids, alkaloids and tannins in the range of Moringa pulp > Moringa seeds > Moringa leaves against both E. coli and S. aureus, respectively.
Key words : Moringa seeds, Moringa pulp, Moringa leaves, phytochemicals, antibacterial
