Moringa Oleifera: The Perfect Nutrient to Delay The Onset of Aging
Real Absorbable Nutrition Delivers Real Results (note sarcasm)…oh gee, what a concept!
Only Zija, The Moringa Company, Has Real Moringa From All Nutritious Parts Of The Correct Varietal Of The Moringa Tree, And ANYONE Telling You They Have Real Moringa Like Zija Is Lying To You!
You may quote me.
Just the other day, I read of an Asian Billionaire claiming he was launching a new biotech DRUG (meaning enzymatically dead with poor absorption and adverse side effects) that “treats cancer with kinase inhibitors”.
Sounds fancy, Right?
Sound promising, Correct?
Real kinase inhibitors already nutritionally exist NATURALLY in Zija’s moringa, with no adverse side effects, and at the price of FREE, under the Team 250 program.
By the way, that is a NUTRITIONAL STATEMENT for anyone thinking differently.
And you have the unmitigated gall to tell me you won’t, or can’t, share real wellness with every living soul you know or meet, while being lucratively compensated to do so?!
SHAME ON YOU!
Drink Life In!

New review by International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Nutrition Working Group examines role of nutrition in sarcopenia, with focus on protein, vitamins D and B, and acid-based diet. (Editor’s note: Moringa is alkaline, rich in Vit B, Vit D and Protein)
Sarcopenia, or the gradual loss of muscle mass, is a common consequence of ageing, and poses a significant risk factor for disability in older adults (Men lose 1% of their testosterone per year past the age of 40). As muscle strength plays an important role in the tendency to fall, sarcopenia leads to an increased risk of fractures and other injuries.
The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Nutrition Working Group has published a new review which identifies nutritional factors that contribute to loss of muscle mass, or conversely, are beneficial to the maintenance of muscle mass. The Group reviewed evidence from worldwide studies on the role of nutrition in sarcopenia, specifically looking at protein, acid–base balance, vitamin D/calcium, and other minor nutrients like B vitamins.
“The most obvious intervention against sarcopenia is exercise in the form of resistance training,” said Professor Jean-Philippe Bonjour, co-author and Professor of Medicine at the Service of Bone Diseases, University of Geneva. “However, adequate nutritional intake and an optimal dietary acid-base balance are also very important elements of any strategy to preserve muscle mass and strength during ageing.”
The review discusses and identifies the following important nutritional factors that have been shown to be beneficial to the maintenance of muscle mass and the treatment and prevention of sarcopenia:
- Protein: Protein intake plays an integral part in muscle health. The authors propose an intake of 1.0–1.2 g/kg of body weight per day as optimal for skeletal muscle and bone health in elderly people without severely impaired renal function.
- Vitamin D: As many studies indicate a role for vitamin D in the development and preservation of muscle mass and function, adequate vitamin D should be ensured through exposure to sunlight and/or supplementation if required. Vitamin D supplementation in seniors, and especially in institutionalized elderly, is recommended for optimal musculoskeletal health.
- Avoiding dietary acid loads: Excess intake of acid-producing nutrients (meat and cereal grains) in combination with low intake of alkalizing fruits and vegetables may have negative effects on musculoskeletal health. Modifying the diet to include more fruits and vegetables is likely to benefit both bones and muscles.
Emerging evidence also suggests that vitamin B12 and/or folic acid play a role in improving muscle function and strength.
As well, the Review discusses non-nutritional interventions such as hormones, and calls for more studies to identify the potential of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in the prevention of sarcopenia.
Dr. Ambrish Mithal, co-author and Chair and Head of Endocrinology and Diabetes division at Medanta, New Delhi underlined the need for further research in the field. “Strategies to reduce the numbers of falls and fractures within our ageing populations must include measures to prevent sarcopenia. At present, the available evidence suggests that combining resistance training with optimal nutritional status has a synergistic affect in preventing and treating sarcopenia, “ said Mithal.
“We hope that further studies will shed light on other effective ways of preventing and treating this condition.”
