Q: What attracted you to the Moringa plant, and Zija specifically?
A: To be truthful,
I was quite skeptical when first approached about participating in the formulation
of this product. But after reviewing the scientific literature available on the
Moringa plant, and after receiving every assurance from Zija executives that I would
be given the necessary resources and freedom to create a premier-grade product that
met some very high standards, I decided to lead the formulation of Zija’s flagship
Q: How would Zija’s supplement beverage compare to others in the industry?
A: The short answer is that it doesn’t really compare. The majority of the beverages
marketed as “health drinks” are only masquerading as such. Many of them use fruit
concentrates, which severely diminishes the nutrient content of the product, and
frequently contain processed sugars and other synthetics. Others have messed around
with nature’s intentions, and only contain a few elements of the original botanical,
or they have simply dumped in this ingredient and that ingredient and called it an
“energy” drink. In the end, all they have is a nutrient-diminished, low-grade product.
Q: So what is it about Zija that makes it a superior product?
A: First and foremost, we haven’t messed around with what nature intended. Zija’s
beverage reflects exactly what is in the Moringa plant. In fact, it contains the
entire Moringa plant - including the leaf, seeds and fruit, and all of it is organically
grown and harvested. And as many people now know, Zija has some of the highest nutrient
values of any nutrition product available. Zija is based on science, not pseudo-science.
This means that it is enzymatically alive and active, and the body can recognize
it because it is natural. In fact, because its formulation and manufacturing are
of the highest quality, Zija truly is 100% natural.
Finally, Zija manages its own organic Moringa farms. We perform assays (evaluations)
of each batch of the harvested plant in terms of quality and nutrient density. Zija
uses only the best of its own harvest, which ultimately guarantees a consistency
of quality in the final product.
Q: Is there anything else about Zija that you feel makes it stand out?
A: Sure, and this really goes back to the preceding question. What really solidifies
Zija as a premier-grade nutritional beverage is its adherence to production standards.
There are several standards to which a nutritional products must live up to in order
to be considered top-notch. First, it has to taste great, plain and simple. Next,
it must be cost-efficient. It must also conform to existing regulatory guidelines.
And finally, it must truly be functional, which means it should do what it says
on the label. Unfortunately, most functional nutrition products violate one of these
standards, and it’s usually the “functionality” standard. In other words, the products
don’t provide what they say they provide, and they don’t do what they say they’ll
do. This is usually due to corner-cutting by the manufacturer, and it results in
a product that is largely devoid of the nutrients they claim to have, or is formulated
in a way that lends to the loss of potency of the primary ingredients. In the end,
these products really are not what the marketers say they are.
Zija, on the other hand, strictly abides by these standards of production and formulation.
It has a pleasant, natural taste, it’s affordable, it is produced according to regulatory
guidelines, and it provides exactly what it says on the label. I’m also pleased
to say that I have been present at every production phase to ensure that the standards
we have established are still being employed. Consequently, what we have is a premium-quality,
pharmaceutical-grade nutrition beverage.
1. ZIJA NOURISHES THE BODY’S IMMUNE SYSTEM. The body’s complex immune system is
comprised of several organs, and trillions of cells, all requiring nutrients from
caloric intake to function correctly and properly. Zija’s Moringa oleifera provides
many dozens of these nutrients, including vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories,
minerals, and essential amino acids.
2. ZIJA PROMOTES HEALTHY CIRCULATION. Significant research on the ingestion of
Moringa oleifera in humans strongly suggests that it can help support both health
and function of the circulatory, blood, and the cardiovascular systems.
3. ZIJA IS 100% BIOAVAILABLE. Unlike many popular fruit juice blends that are heavily
pasteurized, artificially modified, colored or flavored, Zija uses only all-natural
ingredients truly found in nature for an optimum and pristine blend to truly benefit
4. ZIJA SUPPORTS NORMAL BLOOD GLUCOSE. Today’s standard diet is the main contributor
to the explosion of diabetes in developed countries. Zija provides a wide array
of nutrients that help normalize blood glucose levels within the body. Also, Zija
is sweetened with only pure cane sugar which, unlike most concentrated and nutrient-deficient
sugars widely used in today’s food industry, does not contribute to unhealthy blood
5. ZIJA IS ENZYMATICALLY ALIVE. Scientific research strongly suggests mitochontrial
sirtuins (a group of enzymes) that exist in every cell are the master regulators
that divert energy into cellular preservation. Moringa oleifera is very rich in
such enzymes, which are unmodified, or unharmed, when you drink Zija.
6. ZIJA DELIVERS Z-ATIN. Zija Z-ATIN is a remarkable combination of the five constituent
parts of the Moringa oleifera that work synergistically to deliver the most important
nutrients from the plant and to improve absorption and utilization of Zija’s impressive
nutrient profile. Z-ATIN includes: A: Zeatin, a potent antioxidant; B) Quercitin,
a flavonoid known for its ability to neutralize free radicals and relieve inflammation;
C) Beta-Sitosterol, a nutrient superstar that blocks “bad” (for LDL) cholesterol
formation for build-up and is an anti-inflammatory agent for the body; D) Caffeoylquinic
Acid, another powerful anti-inflammatory compound for body benefit; and E) Kaempferol,
a key nutrient that promotes healthy body cellular function.
7. ZIJA IS SUPPORTED BY MODERN SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS. Current research, consisting
of many highly reputable medical, science, and globally recognized health institutions,
suggests that Moringa oleifera possesses numerous therapeutic properties for proper
health. Among these institutions are Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the World
Health Organization, the Center For Disease Control, and the National Institutes

nutrients, which include Zeatin, Quercetin, Omega-3, Fatty Acids, and vitamins, can
protect the body’s cells and prevent many of the common conditions associated with
9. ZIJA DELIVERS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY SUPPORT. Scientists now point to inflammation
as a primary contributor to many of today’s most common diseases, including cancers,
cardiovascular disease, dementia, depression, arthritis, attention deficit disorders,
diabetes, obesity, and many more. Several compounds in the Moringa plant, include
Quercetin and Caffeoylquinic Acid, are known to support normal anti-inflammatory
activity in the body.
10. ZIJA BOOSTS REAL KINESIOLOGICAL ENERGY SAFELY. Zija provides improved mental
and cognitive clarity via many amino acids and B vitamins and therefore is the preferred

in Zija. Zija is also Circle U Kosher & Parve, Halal Approved, and hypo (non) allergenic.
Zija’s Moringa is grown to the highest standards available for assured, consistent,

12. ZIJA IMPROVES YOUR METABOLISM. Moringa oleifera’s nutrient benefits in Zija
provide a gentle nudge over time to improve the body’s metabolic processes because
of the wide and critical nutrients being delivered. Science has repeatedly shown
that such vitamins, minerals, and nutrients act as catalysts for body function benefits,
and disease is minimized when such nutrients are present. “A can of Zija per day
helps you remain happy, healthy, and ready to play!”
13. MORINGA OLEIFERA IN ZIJA HAS A LONG AYURVEDIC HISTORY. Historical and medical
texts indicate that eastern Ayurvedic healers have employed the Moringa plant for
many thousands of years, from conditions ranging from digestive complaints to arthritis.
Combined with modern-day scientific support, this anecdotal evidence provides a
powerful affirmation of Moringa’s therapeutic abilities.
14. ZIJA IS TRULY SCIENCE, NOT FICTION. Zija is made to the highest standards,
offering the nutrients from the five parts of the Moringa plant. To get these many
nutrients in a totally bioavailable form from any other dietary supplement, food,
beverage, combination of herbs, fruit, vegetable, other botanical, over-the-counter
brand, or even a prescription medication simply does not exist.
15. ZIJA IS EASILY ABSORBABLE. Zija is designed to be absorbed in as quickly as
20 minutes from ingestion. Of course the amount of Zija to consume depends on specific
factors such as the individual, predispositions, time, and caloric or exercise regiments,
all of which could influence results. In tracking millions of servings of Zija consumed,
typically at least 86 out of every 100 consumers report a positive effect in their
lifestyle with Zija.
16. ZIJA SUPPLIES NUTRIENTS MISSING IN THE MODERN DIET. Today’s western diet has
double the caloric intake of a consumer in 1965 and we are receiving 75% less nutrient
value for current calories consumed. Seeking daily, quality nutrient supplementation
is no longer an option but a requirement for health. Zija provides these nutrient
