What is Zija
Zija is a nutritional beverage that has been created by taking the leaves, seeds and bark from the Moringa Oleifera tree, and constituting them into juice form. What is so wonderful about the Moringa tree ? The Moringa tree grows in several sub-desert and tropical areas around the world. It has been used by natives for thousands of years to treatwater, help prevent malnutrition, and aid in fighting over 300 ailments and diseases. Unfortunately, up until the last couple years, the Moringa tree, with its amazing health properties, has been unknown to most of the world. Scientific research has found that Moringa Oleifera is packed with vitamins, minerals and essential proteins. In fact, the leaves of this humble tree offer a powerhouse of nutritional value.
VIJA: The miracle story of Moringa and Zija
The story begins with one man viewing a Discovery Channel documentary on a plant grown in far away lands. As he watched, his interest piqued when he observed people literally being sustained by consuming small amounts of this miracle plant. So he began asking the right questions and the answers arrived from the likes of scientists, biochemists, and pharmacologists the world over. The man asking the questions was Ken Brailsford, a super achiever in the nutritional supplement industry, the founder of Zija and the father of herbal encapsulation.
With two other hugely successful nutrition companies to his credit, he knew this plant was a true nutritional miracle. Mr. Brailsford immediately recognized the potential of the practically unknown Moringa plant. Fueled by the desire to share this miracle plant with the world, he dug deeper. He enlisted the research skills of medical professionals and found stacks of supporting research. The findings were overwhelming. And, with decades of research and studies, the Zija team knew that it was time for the world to learn about Moringa – the "Miracle Tree".
VIJA: Moringa is a natural, nutritional powerhouse
While it's one of the newer discoveries to modern science, Moringa has been making strides in various societies for thousands of years. Moringa continues to amaze the scientific world with its amazing balance of antioxidants, minerals and amino acids.
Ancient Indian writings, dating as far back as 150 B.C., refer to the Moringa plant and its uses. Early Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians prized Moringa for its therapeutic properties and also used it to protect skin, make perfume, and purify water for drinking. Now this humble plant, often called "the Miracle Tree," is coming to the forefront through Zija, the Moringa company.
VIJA: Nourishing the world
Dozens of humanitarian organizations now promote the use of Moringa in poverty-stricken areas to combat malnutrition and its adverse effects on the body. Groups such as Church World Service, Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization, National Science Foundation, and others are reintroducing the different health benefits of this fast-growing, drought-resistant plant to malnourished people in various underdeveloped areas. While conventional treatments for malnutrition normally take months, healthcare professionals have discovered that people taking Moringa show improvement within days. One of the more amazing things Moringa is being used for is to prevent childhood blindness, a condition that can develop from vitamin A and retinol deficiencies. Moringa contains sufficient amounts of these nutrients to eliminate this condition.
VIJA: The word on Moringa is out
Biochemists, natural scientists, and healthcare workers are busy substantiating ancient claims of Moringa's effectiveness in treating more than 300 conditions. Their research has led to the documentation of its astonishing range of natural vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
Many people taking Moringa have reported rapid improvements in skin, digestion, eyesight, mental clarity, and overall well-being, plus a reduction in symptoms associated with fatigue, arthritic-like conditions, and aging to name a few.
VIJA: Zija is born
When Ken and his team learned biochemists were calling Moringa "the most nutrient-rich plant ever discovered", they took a closer look at its amazing goodness and created Zija, an astonishingly nutritious dietary supplement designed for full bioavailability by the body.
In addition to its wealth of vitamins and minerals, the Moringa plant provides a rich and rare combination of zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid, and kaempferol. We call this compound Z-Atin, and it's found only in Zija. Z-Atin contributes to the conversion of body fat for weight loss and guarantees that you get all the goodness of Moringa found in Zija.
Today, Mr. Brailsford's vision has been confirmed. Ongoing Moringa research has been validated with thousands of individual experiences in countries all over the world. Moringa could be the miracle food the world has been looking for and Zija is positioned to deliver this miracle plant to the world in a safe and efficacious product called Zija.
