How to Prepare Moringa Capsules At Home? Some Benefits of Taking Capsules

Taking the Moringa capsules is a comfortable way to consume Moringa powder. Otherwise, the taste and smell of Moringa powder may not feel right to some people. 

Moringa oleifera extracts are now commonly available as prepackaged capsules in your local stores. Even otherwise, a rough check through the list of herbal supplements currently retailed online shows that Moringa oleifera products are now commonly retailed on various online stores as '100% pure Moringa' or 'Herbal Magical capsules.' Each capsule contains 100 mg to 500 mg of Moringa Powder or processed leaves, depending on the method of preparation, and sold for an average of $15 per 50 (average) capsules in opaque or translucent plastic containers. 

Moringa Capsules

Regardless of the adopted name, Moringa capsule presentations have received celebrated acceptance around the world, with users affirming to its unmatched benefits when used as directed by an herbal supplement expert. Moringa oleifera capsules are preferred by users when compared to the powdered presentation. The capsules are presented in food-grade gelatin. Herboganic is an online natural product retail store that offers its 500 mg net weight Moringa capsules in gelatin encasement. On product content analysis, each 500 mg capsule was found to contain about 5% fatty acids, 25% protein, 38% carbohydrate, 14% dietary fiber, and a significant quantity of essential nutrients all measured by dry weight {1}. 

Innovations in Moringa oleifera supplement production now involves exploring different conventional drug dosage forms of Moringa to treat various kinds of diseases to which researches have proved Moringa oleifera useful. This includes efforts in producing pharmaceutical grade Moringa nebules to treat inflammation and allergic eruptions in Asthma, Arthritis, and inflammatory conditions of the airways. 

How to Make Moringa Capsules?

Just as Moringa Powder and smoothie, Moringa capsules can also be made on a small scale at home with little capital investment. 

As usual, we have researched the best method of Moringa capsule production that guarantees a high conversion rate from raw Moringa leaves to capsules. 

There are two general methods for producing Moringa capsules. These methods include;

1- Direct Powder Conversion Method

This is the simplest way to manufacture your Moringa capsules at home. All you need is a bulk of carefully prepared Moringa Powder, a pill filler, and empty gelatin capsules of the desired size. Be sure that the gelatin capsule size matches the size of the pill filler. 

How to Make Moringa Powder and Fill Capsules

You can make moringa powder by picking small branches from the Moringa tree containing green leaves. It is better to wash them, preferably with hot water for a few minutes to remove dirt and insects or even insecticides if applied in the crops around. Dry these branches in some shady area to avoid ultraviolet rays of Sun. When dried, remove the leaves, grind them, stain and fill the capsules. 

Empty gelatin capsules can be easily procured online or in reputable community drugstores. It is advisable to buy gelatin capsules that are already detached and arranged to avoid wasting time during Moringa capsule production. 

Arrange the longer ends of the gelatin capsules into the filler base. Weigh the Moringa oleifera powder. Adequate knowledge of the gelatin capsule volume, number of Adequate to be produced, the weight of gelatin capsules, and weight of Moringa Powder used will guide you to determine the net weight of each capsule after production. 

Using a spreader (often provided with the pill filler), transfer a predetermined quantity into each gelatin capsule following the equipment guide of your pill filler. Using a tamping tool (supplied with the filler) compact the powder into the capsules by applying firm pressure. Repeat this procedure many times until you have correctly filled the capsules with the powder. 

Arrange the shorter ends of the gelatin capsules on the cover of the filler. Cover the base and release pressure. Your capsules are now ready! Using the instructions stated on the filler manual, carefully remove the Moringa capsules from the filler. 

Store the capsules away from sunlight and keep out of reach of children. 

2- Heat Activation Method

As the name implies, the Moringa leaves bulk is activated over a low temperature before conversion into powder. This is particularly important for Moringa powders made at home for capsule production. Heat activation sanitizes the leaves, reduces the moisture content and considered by local folks to activate phytochemicals in the leaves. This is a common practice among local production outfits of the Moringa capsule in Africa. Moreover, this practice has not been verified by scientific inquiries. Necessary sanitary procedures should be observed throughout the production process. 

Benefits of Moringa Capsules

Treating Edema

In edema, there's an accumulation of excess fluid within the cavities and tissues of the body. Of all the supplement presentation forms of Moringa oleifera, Moringa capsules are especially recommended as a Natural product treatment option for edema. In 2017, a research report published by the Journal of Innovations in Pharmaceutical and Biological Sciences (JIPBS) demonstrated how Moringa leaves presentations can inhibit carrageenan-induced edema in rats {2}. This paper has positioned Moringa capsules in modern medicine as a cheap natural alternative for the treatment of edema. 

Supplement for Brain health

Moringa oleifera leave extracts have been proved by different researches to contain useful phytochemicals with antioxidant properties. This is the basis of Moringa capsule use in brain health. Adequate dosing of these capsules mop up free radicals in the nervous system and help manage neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinsonism and Alzheimer's disease. 

Bone growth and development

This is the most common use of the Moringa capsule in active athletes, developing children and women of childbearing age. Osteoporosis, a condition characterized by a low bone mineral density and common in post-menopausal women, can be effectively managed with Moringa oleifera capsule. Administration of 1 g Moringa capsule, once daily for 12 weeks, was verified as a potential treatment for osteoporosis by a clinical trial conducted in 2017 {3}.

Moringa capsules are also useful in the management of Diabetes, Asthma, Hypertension, and weight loss programs.
