A Pre experimental one group pre and post test design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of Moringa oleifera leaves tea on reduction of blood pressure among hypertensive clients in selected rural area at BEML Nagar, KGF with 30 samples of hypertensive clients, selected by non probability purposive sampling technique. The blood pressure of the participants were monitored and recorded before and after intervention by using sphygmomanometer. The data obtained were analyzed and interpreted in terms of the objectives and hypothesis of the study. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for the data analysis the level of significance was set at 0.05 level. Before intervention 8 (27%) participants had mild Hypertension, 17 (56%) participants had moderate hypertension, 5(17%) participants had severe hypertension. After intervention 20 (67%) participants had normal blood pressure, 7(23%) participants had mild hypertension, 2 (07%) participants had moderate hypertension and only 1(3%) participant had severe hypertension. The difference between pre test mean score and post test mean score was 19.1. The obtained t value is 6.46 which is greater than the table value at 0.05 level of significance. Therefore the t value is found to be significant. There is remarkable reduction of blood pressure among hypertensive clients after administration of moringa leaves tea. None of the demographic variables show any statistical significance with effectiveness of moringa leaves tea on reduction of blood pressure among hypertensive clients except habit of smoking (p value is 0.0368) significance level set was < 0.05. The present study concluded that, there is remarkable reduction of blood pressure among hypertensive clients after administration of moringa leaves tea. Hence moringa leaves is found to be effective in reduction of hypertension.
