Moringa?: Had to look up Moringa. It is an herbal tea that is supposed to help a whole host of ailments. could not find any contraindications to use with any specific drug. Probably ok to use with lipitor, (atorvastatin) a statin. Ck with nutritionist. You got a remarkable reduction in your cholesterol with only 20 of Lipitor (atorvastatin). Check with ur doc if dose appropriate 4 u. Need to know ur LDL & HDL before & since therapy.
