The origin of the name Zija results from modern science and ancient wisdom. The “Z” is derived from one of the most unique characteristics of the Zija beverage, Z-Atin™ , an all-natural metabolic trigger that allows your body to absorb the wealth of vitamins, minerals and nutrients in Zija. The “ija” part of the Zija name is from the ancient languages used to describe the Moringa plant.
MORINGA – THE MIRACLE TREE
Imagine a tree in your backyard that will meet all your nutritional needs, take care of you medicinally, and purify your water for you. This tree actually exists. For centuries, the natives of northern India and many parts of Africa have known of the many benefits of Moringa oleifera.
Its uses are as unique as the names it is known by, such as clarifier tree, horseradish tree and drumstick tree (referring to the large drumstick shaped pods) and in East Africa it is called “mother’s best friend”.
Virtually every part of the tree can be used.
Native only to the foothills of the Himalayas, it is now widely cultivated in Africa, Central and South America, Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia and the Philippines. This tree, though little known in the Western world, is nutritional dynamite. There are literally hundreds of uses for this tree.
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 John Hopkins School of Medicine, the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, and the National Institutes of Health.
Dozens of humanitarian organizations promote the use of Moringa in poverty stricken areas to combat malnutrition and its adverse effects on the body.
Zija’s Moringa Facts
A NATURAL, NUTRITIONAL POWERHOUSE
While it’s one of the newer discoveries in 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 drinking water.
In addition to its wealth of vitamins and minerals, the Moringa plant provides a rich and rare combination of zeatin (a potent antioxidant), quercetin (a flavonoid known for its ability to neutralize free radicals and relieve inflammation), beta-sitosterol (a nutrient superstar that blocks “bad” (or LDL) cholesterol formation or build-up and is an anti-inflammatory agent for the body), caffeoylquinic acid (another powerful anti-inflammatory compound), and kaempferol (a key nutrient that promotes healthy body cellular function). We call this compound Z-Atin, and it’s found on in Zija. Z-Atin is the metabolic trigger for complete nutrient absorption and its guarantees that you get all the goodness of Moringa found in Zija.
Scientific research also suggests mitochontrial sirtuins (a group of enzymes) that exist in every cell are the master regulators the divert energy into cellular preservation. Moringa oleifara is very rich in such enzymes, which are unmodified, or unharmed, when you use Zija products.
Zija is formulated for bioavailablity and easy absorption in the body. Just one serving of Zija per day provides you with vital antioxidants, minerals, omega oils, and essential amino acids.
