Moringa Capsule Review: A Must Watch Before You Buy Moringa Capsules!

Moringa Capsule Review

Moringa Capsule Review (The Video is Below)

There is a huge variation in quality of Moringa products available today. I have said this before, but today you are going to see firsthand what this looks like. Many capsules have additives, some are organic, some are vegan, and some don’t even contain dried Moringa leaf powder at all! I’m serious!

Moringa Capsule Review Methodology:

For this Moringa capsule review I assumed for a moment that I had just heard about Moringa for the first time. Like many people would, I went to Amazon.com and searched for Moringa capsules. From the long list of search results, I purchased 7 products that where high ranking on the search and also had over one hundred reviews that were 4 star or higher. These are products that would look very attractive to a potential buyer! To round out the review, I also added to the list our own Moringa capsules sold here at A Healthy Leaf.

Upon receiving the products, I took pictures of all bottles for reference. Each bottle was then opened, and one capsule was removed. The capsules were carefully pulled apart and the contents poured onto a white plate. In total, eight samples are compared in this review.

My goal is to share this information with you so you can be educated should you decide to purchase Moringa capsules. Even though I have a product in the review, I have tried to be as objective as possible. In fact, I was compelled to write this review as some information–what Moringa leaf extract powder is–couldn’t be found when searching online. This is information people should know!

Following the video review you will find additional information presented on each of the 8 Moringa capsules.

Please leave questions and comments below and SHARE if you find this helpful!

Notes: There appears to have been some misuse of the review system on Amazon. It appears like the company has corrected the issue. The issue was explained by a customer and can be found on Amazon.

I haven’t used the product long enough to know if it works. But it arrived with an offer for 2 bottles more or shampoo for free in exchange for a 5 star review. I rely on reviews quite often when I buy stuff so I really dislike this abuse of the review system.

 


3. Rebornlabs

Moringa Capsules Review #7

Business Info: Business in Southern California passionate about health, fitness and nutrition.

Website: www.rebornlabs.com

Reg Price: $45.99    Sale Price: $17.41

Ingredients: Moringa Oleifera Leaf Powder (4:1 Extract)

Moringa CP #6

 

 

 

Notes: They state in their About Video that “our comprehensive formulations, no unnecessary ingredients and world class shipping make us the best in market”.  However, both calcium carbonate and magnesium stearate are added to their powder. These are referred to as excipients–the former is used as a bulk filer or diluent, and the latter is used as a “flow agent”.

Dr. Mercola states

In the U.S. many supplement makers are adding “flow agents” into their capsules. Their only purpose is to keep ingredients from sticking to equipment during mixing and compression. They make manufacturing faster and easier, but it’s not impossible to produce the final product without them. Not using them simply adds to manufacturing costs and final sales price of the product, but there is clearly no reason this ingredient is added for consumer benefit.

  1. Fantastic review! Thanks Mark:)

  2. I had used Organic India before your product. I am horrified that it is loaded with lead. I will now have to rethink using their other products.

    1. Donna, I don’t really know what the actual lead levels are in the Organic India Moringa Capsules. That being said, they have to be above ~ 0.5ppm though to require the warning on their label. It actually has to due with the daily expose to lead and the serving size etc… Would be interesting to find out how high the levels of lead actually are. By way of comparison Moringa capsules from A Healthy Leaf have been tested to have 0.0002ppm or 0.2 parts per billion of lead. That is around 1000 times less than even California’s strict limit!

  3. Very informative! Thanks…Keep up the good work!

  4. I would love it if you could recommend a certain brand of Moringa. I don’t have a thyroid and thought this could be helpful to me. I really appreciate all of your research on this. Thanks so much. Jill Alex from Easley SC

  8. Hi Mark! Thanks for providing this awesome review, and also for publishing your heavy metals test results for lead.

    I am interested in knowing the test results for cadmium, mercury and arsenic as well. Could you post those or email them to me? I want to double my daily dose, and just want to feel confident I’m not exceeding any daily limits on heavy metals. Thanks!

    1. Melissa,

      Latest Certificate of Analysis of the dry leaf powder shows Cadnium < 0.2ppm, Mercury < 0.03 ppm, and arsenic at less that <0.5 ppm. I hope that helps! Thanks, Mark
