The objective of this study is to identify the effect of moringa leaves products consumption in the form of moringa capsule and moringa tea on the elderly's uric acid level. The study design was quasi-experiment. The subjects of this study were 16 elderlies which were all 47 years old or older. These subjects were divided into two groups. First, the group that was given 1 package of moringa tea (equal to 1.5g moringa tea). Second, the group that was given 2 moringa capsules (equal to ± 0.5g moringa leaves powder). Both products were set to be consumed twice a day (morning and afternoon). Both products contain antioxidant activity (IC50-DPPH) for approximately 139.93 ppm. The consumption of moringa capsule for seven days consecutively has a potential effect on the medicinal treatment of hyperuricemia by decreasing uric acid level.
