Clinically Researched Moringa
Antioxidant, Back Discomfort & Fatigue
MorActive™ is a new, patented extract from the moringa seed, Moringa oleifera, standardized to glucomoringin. Known as a superfood, the moringa plant has been used both as a traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine and as a source of nutrition. The seeds have been found to have high levels of glucosinolates – these sulfur-containing compounds have been found to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
MorActive™ has been shown in a clinical study to be effective in reducing the severity of lower back discomfort and fatigue at a low dose. This represents a new standard for back ingredients – a naturally derived ingredient for back discomfort with a clinical study to support it. Back discomfort has plagued modern society for many years – it affects 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives and is the third most common reason people visit the doctor’s office.
Mechanism of Action
Glucomoringin is converted in the body to moringin, which is an isothiocyanate. Moringin has been shown to exhibit strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Oxidative stress and inflammation caused by active oxygen generated in the body is one of the major causes of physical discomfort associated with fatigue. Furthermore, moringin is shown to be a very effective and potent antagonist of TRPA1 – this ion channel is a known sensor for pain.
MorActive™ moringa seed extract has been studied for fatigue and back discomfort in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical study.

MorActive™ is a fine, pale-yellow powder, soluble in water, with little taste. It can be formulated into capsules, tablets, powders, gummies, and can be included in foods and beverages. MorActive™ has a shelf-life of 24 months.
Each lot of MorActive™ is tested for physical parameteres, chemical analysis for benzyl glucosinolate, micro and heavy metals. Moringa seeds are consumed in food. The safety and toxicity of the MorActive™ moringa seed extract has been studied in various toxicity studies.
