  4. I bought Moringa capules about 4 yrs ago and their in storage sealed!….How long will they last for?

    • I bought a fresh bag of Moringa powder this month – the expiry date – 01, 2018. (2 years).
      Since I don’t buy the capsules – I don’t know if they have a longer shelf life than the powder form.
      Certainly the powder needs to be stored in a dark, resealable bag to keep fresh.
      Perhaps you can contact the company for a more definitive answer regarding the capsules.
      Thanks for your inquiry.
