FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Tell me about your product you sell on your site. I want specifics! I don’t want to guess about this product’s quality.
A: The Moringa leaf powder in these products comes from Ecuador. it is grown on a USDA certified organic plantation which has its own stream that is pre-filtered before it is used for irrigation on the plantation. It uses modern equipment to wash the leaves. The leaves are dried by modern drying methods under low heat to preserve the nutrients.
Organic USDA certified ‘Vitalize Source’ products are exceptional quality, Moringa trees are grown on a certified organic farm in Ecuador. The products are tested for e-coli, mold, bacteria, and heavy metals in a us/gmp compliant lab in the us. They are packed and shipped in the USA as well.
Q: I have heard that moringa is high in calcium. Is it safe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance?
A: you have heard right. Moringa is rich in many nutrients and has a high calcium value, pound for pound, 17 times the calcium in milk. Despite this, it is safe for all to consume, including those who are lactose intolerant, as it doesn’t contain any lactose.
Q. Which is the best, moringa leaf powder capsules or moringa leaf powder extract 4:1 capsules?
A. The ratios explain how much extract is in an equal part of solution. In this case, 4 parts of extract for every 1 part of solution. The higher this ratio is than 1:1, the more concentrated the extract is. In regards to which is better: to many, this is a preference. Extract is stronger and is convenient in a liquid that can be mixed into most things. The cons are that it is processed in a way that introduces foreign compounds and is no longer entirely pure or raw. Additionally, although the constituents that transfer are more concentrated, not all of the vital components can transfer into extract. Thus, powder is somewhat less potent in terms of a raw volume to volume comparison, but it does contain the entire stable of nutrients and is 100% pure. Benefit can be seen from both; the value of the trade-offs vary from person to person.
Vitalize Source sell both extract and Organic Moringa to let you choose so either are good supplements to take.
Q: Is Moringa Oleifera just another dietary fad/super food?
A: Moringa Oleifera has been in use for more than 2,000 years and is a very valued plant for a wide variety of applications. It has been revered for centuries in countries in Asia and Africa for both its healing and nutritive value. It is only now being discovered in western culture as people look to nature for health and treatment. In many third world countries, it continues to form the basis for nutritional programs put into place by charitable organizations. The biggest challenge for Moringa Oleifera is the “too good to be true” syndrome. It offers so much that it is difficult to believe such a simple plant can be so useful and the supplements are not more easily available to buy in health stores.
Q: If it’s is so good, how come I haven’t heard of it?
A: Moringa Oleifera is known by over 200 names in many different countries, which adds to its anonymity. It is usually the product of tropical and sub-tropical countries, where the hardy plant survives well and provides sustenance to native people. As a result, this product hasn’t been commercially farmed and produced on an industrial scale. However, it is incorporated into many “proprietary” formulas for nutritional supplements and the oil is used in many luxurious cosmetics.
Q: With the accessibility to fresh vegetables in most shops, why is a supplement like Moringa Oleifera necessary?
A: Time, not availability is usually the issue. Modern lifestyles fast pace of living we are more out of shape now than at any time in our history. In an ideal society, we would have the time to cook all of our meals from scratch with fresh vegetables that we can personally vouch for. However, most of us are so busy in the evenings with after-school activities, homework, travel, and chores, that meals are usually grabbed from the freezer or emptied from a can. As a result, our food is reconstituted, reheated, “enriched”, preserved, and genetically modified. We have only to look at the health of our youth, with a staggering increase in obesity, juvenile diabetes, and autism, to determine that all is not well in the world of nutrition. Our bodies were designed to get our nutrition primarily from plant sources. Balance is the key and Moringa Oleifera is a naturally balanced nutritional supplement.
Q: Is your Moringa genetically modified?
A: No our Organic Moringa is a plant that is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, chemical pesticides and insecticides, growth hormones or antibiotics.

Q: Is organic food more nutritious than conventionally grown food?
A: yes. Organic farmers practice crop rotation. This means that they will grow different crops each year to preserve and nourish the soil, and to promote biodiversity. Traditional farmers may grow the same crops on the same soil year after year and use toxic chemicals, both of which result in nutrient depletion. The nutritional value of food is strongly correlated to the nutritional value of the soil.
