I am an independent distributor of the organic energy & nutrition drinks, skin care products and an incredibly effective weight loss/weight management system made by Zija International. Zija’s products are infused with elements of the moringa oleifera tree, a nutrient-dense plant that the National Institutes of Health lauded in 2008 as its “Plant of the Year” due to its effectiveness in addressing a myriad of health problems. The positive health impacts of moringa has been heavily researched. (The National Academies of Science’s chapter on moringa is fascinating.)
My own personal experience with drinking a nutritional drink (Zija SmartMix) containing moringa oleifera daily since June 2012 is my allergies disappeared, my finger joint stiffness disappeared, and I recover much faster from exercise. Also: I have not had a cold or been sick since starting to use the Zija drink.* I credit the 46 naturally occurring antioxidants and the 36 naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents in the drink.
SmartMix also contains all of the “essential” amino acids that the body requires but which it doesn’t produce itself and must get from outside sources. There is no other nutritional supplement on the market even close to the nutrient content of Zija.
Essentially, moringa oleifera is a “superfood” – except that in its natural state it tastes and smells horrible. Zija developed a way to make it palatable without degrading the nutrition content.
Within 20 minutes of drinking it, 100 percent of the nutrients in it are absorbed by the body.
I was introduced to Zija in 2011 by a friend, Jay Clark, who said Zija’s nutritional drink had helped clear up his allergies. Since I struggled with allergies and breathing problems – using a preventive inhaler (Advair) daily as well as taking a Zyrtec, and carrying a Xopenex “rescue inhaler” all the time, I figured it was worth a shot.
Three weeks after adding it to my daily diet, my allergies disappeared. And, as a bonus, the chronic and increasingly bad joint stiffness in my fingers also disappeared, thanks to the anti-inlammatory properties of the drink. Also, within a few months I found that I was recovering much more quickly from exercise. I like to take long bike rides but didn’t like the day or two of stiff joints and sore muscles that I suffered after a 40-mile ride. Thanks to Zija, I now recover in less than a day.
I also sometimes use Zija’s XM+ energy drink, which contains the same nutrition plus natural energy boosters. It’s better than coffee. (In fact, I estimate I’m saving more than $100 a month by switching to Zija’s nutrition and energy drinks because I now drink far less coffee – and spend less than I did before buying Jamaican Blue Mountain or dark French Roast grounds at Whole Foods and lattes at Starbucks.
(Zija recent reformulated “SmartMix,” increasing its nutritional content and also improving the taste. It is now called “SuperMix.” - and it is fantastic.)
Because I have seen these products work, for myself and for others, I decided to become an independent distributor. As a former business reporter, I know that word-of-mouth marketing is the most powerful marketing out there, and that the network marketing model allows companies to build a large and loyal customer base while keeping prices lower than traditional retail. From a business perspective, Zija has a 95% reorder rate from customers who try the products for at least three months. Nearly every person who tries these products likes them and becomes a long-term customer.
If you’d like to try the products, you can do so at no risk as the company offers a 100% money-back guarantee.
If you’d like more information, please send me an email at email@example.com or via the contact form on this website. – Bill Hobbs.
