A systematic literature review using articles with a case report study design (collected from 2011 to 2021). The search databases used are PubMed, Google Scholar, and Science Direct. Journal quality is assessed by JBI (Joanna Briggs Institute) Critical Appraisal. There were 10 articles that met the criteria and were of good quality. Based on the results, the side effects that occur in the use of Moringa are in the respiratory tract, dermal, and rhabdomyolysis.
