How to make sure you buy the best moringa powder
Avoid oxidation to retain key nutrients
Moringa powder has many health benefits, but for it to work, it must be high quality.
The majority of the moringa powder sold to consumers is actually brown. This means that it has oxidized and is no longer fresh.
We get many comments from customers about how the previous moringa powder they ordered from another brand arrived brown.
If your moringa is brown, then it has already lost most of its nutrition and this is due to oxidation (where oxygen degrades the moringa and causes the moringa to lose its nutritional content).
We take steps to make sure our moringa stays fresh so you get the full benefits of this amazing plant. We package it in an air-tight bag that also prevents UV and light to pass. Additionally, we also include an oxygen absorber inside.
All of these steps ensure the moringa you receive is the freshest and most nutrient rich moringa powder on the market.
Ensure your moringa powder is only made from fresh moringa leaves
The leaf is the most nutritious part of the moringa tree. We only use the leaves in our moringa powder. Some seller use the seed cake, the bark, or the roots to cut costs and bulk out the product.
Moringa powder from Green Virgin Products is made exclusively from fresh moringa leaves to ensure the purest, most nutritional moringa powder.
