If you are checking out this review, then chances are you’re searching for information on Zija International. Zija isn’t a new company, but it’s still relatively young and still in it’s early stages. And, because it’s part of the growing Health and Wellness industry, there is an obvious market for the products Zija sells. If you’re seriously thinking about joining Zija as a rep, I want to encourage you to read through this third party review as I will go into information on the company, the product line, the pay plan and, most importantly, what you’ll have to do to give yourself the best chance of succeeding at Zija.
First Of All, Let’s Cover Who Zija International Is?
Zija is a company that promotes health and nutritional products via a network marketing, or multilevel marketing, business structure. The company was started by Kenneth Brailsford and a group of entrepreneurs in 2006. Currently, the management team is led by Kenneth Brailsford (founder and President), Rodney Larsen (Executive President) and Michael Hershberger (Vice President). All three of these men have extensive backgrounds in business, and bring over 50 years of combined direct sales experience to the company.
Currently, the company is based in Utah, but is operating in the US, Canada, Mexico, China and Japan. Based on their current growth, it wouldn not be a surprise to see them break into more countries and expand their international market presence.
What Does Zija Market?
Zija markets nutritional and health products that all contain Moringa. Moringa is an exotic plant that has been used for thousands of years in various countries for it’s beneficial properties. There is tremendous research that document that plant’s balance of amino acids, minerals and antioxidants.
According to the corporate site,the Moringa plant has been used as early as 150 BC by several cultures including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and many Asian cultures. Also, the company website states that there are more than 300 conditions known that the Moringa plant can help with.
Zija has developed a few different Moringa products. Some of these products include:
1. The liquid nutritional line – Zija’s liquid nutritional line is made up of three products. The first one is their original, flagship product called The Smart Drink. The Smart Drink comes in small cans and contains 90 different minerals, vitamins, nutrients, omega oils and, of course, the Moringa plant. The second product is Smart Mix, which is a powder version of The Smart Drink, so you can pack it and simply add it to water whenever you want. The last product is called XM3, which is Zija’s version of the energy drink, but has weight loss benefits as well.
2. Weight management products – The first product in Zija’s weight loss line is a capsule version of their XM3 product. And the second product is Miracle Tea, which is a cleanse product.
3. Skin care products – Zija has put together a complete line of skin care products that have Moringa extracts and are all -natural.
Obviously, if you’re thinking about joining Zija, you should take time to do some homework on Moringa for yourself so you can get some basic knowledge on it’s medicinal properties.
The Pay Plan
As far as Zija’s business opportunity goes, you can become a rep by buying a distributor kit and an initial product purchase. Every month thereafter, you’ll have to maintain a monthly product order, or autoship, to capitalize on the compensation plan. The compensation plan has several ways you can make money including personal commissions, residual income, matching checks, different kindsof bonuses and even order rebates. All in all, there’s a fair balance of upfront income potential and back-end residual income potential.
Is Zija A Solid Opportunity?
In closing, Zija is a very stable business opportunity. The company has an experienced management team, quality products, a generous pay plan and is still in it’s ground floor stages. If you are looking to join a network marketing company that promotes wellness products, Zija might be for you.
However, Zija Will Not Make You Wealthy!
The only thing Zija give you is a vehicle and an opportunity. Ultimately, your success will depend on your ability to sponsor distributors, sell products and develop a productive team. In addition, in order to succeed at building a profitable Zija business, you must learn how to market and generate leads. Without leads, you will have a very hard time getting your business going. However, if you’re generating an endless flow of leads, you can potentially be on your way to building a wildly prosperous business.

Moringa [Ben/Behen], is known as the miracle tree – and with good reason. It grows to a height of only 7 – 12 m and has a lifespan of a mere 20 years. Though not as impressive in stature or longevity as the beloved baobab, it can more than hold its own in the impressive stakes.
Moringa has a short, but intense life, growing like the clappers. It can grow up to 4 m in in a season – taking a mere 10 months from seed to tree! As the maxim goes ‘Dynamite comes in small packets’ – and the mighty moringa sure validates this claim, and then some.
Naturally Healthy Moringa now has stocks avaailable from various suppliers like Zija International also :
Moringa grows in over 80 countries, is known by over 200 different common names, and is referenced in over 300 folk medicine remedies. Also known as the Drumstick Tree, and Famine Tree, Moringa’s virtues have even been passionately extolled by Dr Oz on TV, and lauded in print in the National Geographic [Nov 2012] magazine.
Moringa is one of the most ancient oils known to humans and its healing properties, which have been documented by ancient cultures [Greeks, Romans, Egyptians], have stood the test of time – and still come out with flying colours to this day.
All parts of this revered tree, native to Africa and India, are used for their pharmacological and nutritional properties, hence the ‘Miracle tree’ appellation. Moringa’s leaves and seeds are full of health-giving nutrients and skin-loving fatty acids. It is used in cooking, cosmetics, medicine and lubrication – and even has potential as a biofuel.
Along with the other unique African oils, Moringa has become the latest darling of the natural and commercial cosmetic industries, due to its remarkable skin-smoothing, radiance-boosting, decongesting, detoxifying, moisturising, conditioning and anti-ageing properties.
Besides its many other virtues, Moringa oil possesses exceptional oxidative stability, which may explain why the Egyptians placed vases of this oil in their tombs to assist them in the afterlife – so chance is a good thing that Cleopatra knew all about this facet of Moringa’s impressive profile!
Here is a picture of the Moringa Amphora from the Tomb of Maiherpri * [his name can be translated as Lion of the Battlefield]. Some of the dockets attached to the jars indicated that they had contained b3k-oil, a very expensive commodity made from Moringa nuts.
* Maiherpri was an Ancient Egyptian noble of Nubian origin buried in the Valley of the Kings, in tomb KV36. He probably lived during the rule of Thutmose IV, [the 8th Pharoah of the 18th dynasty of Egypt, who ruled in approximately the 14th century BC.
For the aromatic perfumers out there ..…..…
Did you know that Moringa oil was used for perfumery long before the advent of alcohol distillation and other modern day diluent chemicals?
Distillation dates back to more or less the 4th century BC.
During these times aromatics were extracted by steeping plant material or splinters of fragrant wood in oil to extract the essential oils. The macerated material would eventually be placed in cloth and wrung out until the last vestiges of aroma had been retrieved. Alternatively the material was boiled with oil and water and the aromatic essential oil skimmed off. Besides Moringa, other oils like balanos [from the seeds of the Balanites aegyptiaca tree], castor, linseed, olive, sesame, safflower and sometimes almond were used.
Traditional perfumers however held [and hold] Moringa oil in esteem for its exceptional fixative powers i.e. it can absorb and retain even the most elusive scents, locking the aromatic molecules into the oil. Another one of the reasons for my enduring love affair with this divine oil.
There are reports of Moringa being used in cosmetic preparations as far back as 1400 BC, wherein an allegedly successful remedy to treat wrinkles consisted of: gum of frankincense wax; fresh Moringa oil and Cyprus grass [Cyperus alternifolius] – a grass-like marsh plant of the Cyperaceae [or sour grasses] family that is also used to make papyrus. The mixture was ground finely, mixed with fermented plant juice, and applied daily. Let me know if you try it and it works!
These days Moringa seed oil is in much demand for natural and luxury cosmetics because of its stability profile and resistance to rancidity, which is due to high levels of powerful antioxidants.
The Moringa plant is being hailed as a way to combat famine and malnutrition – with good reason. The leaves are an excellent source of plant protein, and at 27% is considered to have the highest protein ratio of any plant so far studied on planet earth.
It contains 18 amino acids, [including the 8 essential ones], 25 minerals and vitamins. With regard to beta-carotene it has as much fibre as carrots but 4 times the beta-carotene content. Moringa also contains EFAs: omega 3,6 & 9, chlorophyll, various phenolics, over 46 naturally occurring antioxidants, and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds. Impressive, don’t you agree? Tiny leaves – tre[e]mendous power!
More than enough evidence to include it in one’s diet.
Moringa oil can be used for cooking [marinades, sauté, stir fry – flashpoint 200C], or as-is on salads and veg. It can also be used in baking as a butter substitute, since it has a buttery flavour. Try making popcorn with it and taste the buttery, nutty difference!
Nutritionally, moringa contains a rich and rare combination of zeatin [anti-ageing], quercetin [anti-cancer agent], beta-sitosterol [anti-inflammatory, anticholesterol, anticancer], caffeoylquinic acid [anti-inflammatory, anti-flu], kaempferol [antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, cardioprotective]. For readers with a special interest in nutritional compounds the following may be of relevance:
With Moringa nothing is wasted. The seedcake remaining after extraction is used as fertiliser, so the cycle continues.
Moringa seeds have an invaluable impact on health and the environmental with regard to its unique ability to purify water. The seeds treat water on two levels, acting both as a coagulant or flocculant, and an antimicrobial agent. It is generally accepted that Moringa works as a coagulant due to positively charged, water-soluble proteins, which bind with negatively charged particles [silt, clay, bacteria, toxins, etc.] allowing the resulting ‘flocs’ to settle to the bottom or be removed by filtration.
The antimicrobial aspects of Moringa continue to be researched and findings support recombinant proteins both removing microorganisms by coagulation, as well as acting directly as growth inhibitors of the microorganisms.
While there is on-going research being conducted on the nature and characteristics of these components, it is accepted that treatments with Moringa solutions will remove 90-99.9% of impurities from water. Wow!
The medicinal uses are the stuff of legends, as can be seen below. Conditions range from A-to-V, so to speak – from abrasions to viruses – and even more!
Abrasions/grazes, acidosis, anaemia, arthritis, bruises, burns, cancer, colitis, cuts, detoxicant [attracts toxins in blood and removes build-up via excretion], diabetes & other blood glucose imbalances, diarrhoea, eye-sight [Vit A/beta-carotene], HIV/AIDS, hormone imbalances, hypercholesterolaemia, hypertension, infections, immune deficiency, insect bites, lactation deficiency, liver & kidney problems, low energy & fatigue, malnutrition, obesity, osteoporosis, parasites [internal], pregnancy problems, nervous conditions [anxiety], rashes, respiratory problems, scurvy, skin conditions, slow metabolism [metabolic stimulant], viral conditions …….
I’m particularly interested in the virtue of its galactagogic properties, being a firm believer in the value of breastfeeding. As therapeutic aromatherapists know, galactogogues are agents that establish, promote and maintain the flow of mother’s milk. Moringa is one of the most studied herbs in the Philippines, and several studies confirm its efficacy relative to problems with lactation.
Moringa tea, capsules or powder are effective as lactation support even if given prior to delivery.
To assist with normal lactation it is recommended to be given 3 days postpartum [after delivery] to induce milk flow or help the milk ‘come in’ without problems. Scientifically, the lactation enhancing effects of Moringa leaves are evidenced by a greater increase in maternal serum prolactin levels – the most important hormone in the initiation of lactation.
The oil is excellent for baby massage, and in my opinion, 1000× preferable to baby/mineral oil! I make sure I stay stocked up with a few kilos to ensure there’s enough for all our new young grandchildren. In the Cape, mothers talk about ‘rubbing the baby out’ with oil – quite a mindboggling image – but you get the idea!! Moringa is an ideal massage medium for this bonding activity.
Moringa also has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine, and Indian people have used the oil to treat many conditions, including acne and skin problems – since it tightens pores and helps remove black heads, as well as reducing blemishes.
As intimated before, Moringa oil has many cosmetic applications. Because it balances oil secretion of skin it is great in cleansers and toners. In addition it has a remarkable capacity to remove grime [detox] from skin without clogging pores [non-comedogenic]. Could this action be related to its profound ability to purify water – and blood? It also counteracts the effects of pollution and other environmental aggressors [heat, sun, wind].
With an impressive oleic acid content of 72%, this nutrient-dense oil penetrates deeply into the skin, delivering vital nutrients while helping the skin and hair retain moisture. It keeps skin glowing and gives shine to lip gloss and creams.
Like its other African-oil comrades, Moringa oil is outstanding for mature, ageing, very dry and nutrient-depleted skin. Some of its main claims to cosmetic fame is its exceptional anti-ageing and wrinkle reduction potential. The antioxidants and the nutrients present in the oil help to curb the activity of free radicals – those nasty rogue molecules that cause damage to cells and tissues and pave way for skin wrinkles. Rich in copper, Moringa aids in the production of the powerful antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase [SOD], and acts as a catalyst for collagen production
Japanese and Korean women are said to be the top consumers and users of Moringa seed oil – which may explain their great skin. A simple face serum can be made with 60% Moringa:40% Macadamia oils. Although there are new and innovative scientific ways to reduce wrinkles and restore vitality to the skin, much of the secret to youthful skin simply lies in maintaining a healthy living environment for skin cells to live – and Moringa oil achieves this goal perfectly.
Moringa oil, like olive oil, is useful in lifting dirt out of the hair and is an efficient natural hair cleanser. By simply wetting the hair, massaging the oil into the scalp and rinsing off one can effectively clean and moisturize the scalp. In general, Moringa improves the health and strength of both hair and scalp.
Regular application and scalp massage can also reduce split ends and prevent dandruff and cradle-cap. And for the soap makers out there, Moringa oil has inherent antiseptic properties, produces a rich, creamy lather, and unlike any other plant-based oil, actually increases the cleansing ability without drying the skin.
Because Moringa contains powerful antioxidants, and absorbs quickly into the skin, it is as good a choice to add to beauty products that are rinsed off the skin [such as soaps and scrubs], as it is for leave-on products like cosmetic creams and medicinal unguents.
In conclusion – if you haven’t tried Moringa yet do yourself a favour and give the leaves, powder and oil a try as soon as you can. Or better still – plant a tree or two in your garden or pot-garden. I’m on a mission to give everyone I know either some seed, or a seedling, so that they can add this incredible gift from Nature to their daily diet.
Infertility may be broadly defined as the inability to get pregnant after trying for at least one year without using any birth control. In Western countries, infertility affects an estimated 15% of the population. While a part of them are trying to conceive using alternative methods like IVF, others prefer to optimize the chances of getting pregnant naturally. Using natural compounds like those found in Moringa Olifera capsules, leaves, powder, or tea has been scientifically proven to enhance a positive healthy environment for ovulation to occur. Trying to get pregnant naturally may be very important, since many couples and individuals who are diagnosed with infertility may be able to get pregnant without treatment (and hence should be defined as “subfertile” rather than “infertile”).
When trying to get pregnant naturally, the most important factor is to understand the menstrual cycle and the timing of ovulation, which leads to the optimum chances of getting impregnated. Usually, ovulation occurs around the fourteenth day, and hence, to get pregnant naturally, a couple should have as much sexual intercourse as possible between the twelfth and the fifteenth day. Different women have slightly varying menstrual cycles.Hence, to improve the chances of becoming pregnant, it is imperative to study one’s periods, and calculate exactly when one ovulates.
Determining the signs of ovulation.
To check for the right timings of ovulation, a woman can do one, or many, of the following things:
. Keep a calendar. Keeping a calendar to chart the days is an easy and effective method to determine the right time to have sexual intercourse.
. Keep a check on vaginal fluids. Mucus discharge from the vagina usually becomes heavier, thinner, clearer and stretchy during ovulation when compared to the usual times.
. Feel the inside of the vagina. During ovulation, the cervix is softer and slightly more open than usual.
. Keep tabs on any sharp pain in the abdomen. Sharp pains in the abdomen, or some slight spotting, may be indicative of ovulation.
. Other physical conditions. Headaches, bloating, breast tenderness and pain may be signs of ovulation.
Having checked for ovulation, there are some other things that an individual can do to increase the chances of getting pregnant naturally. These include lying still for a while after having sexual intercourse, avoiding the bathroom for about thirty minutes after having sexual intercourse, and most importantly, figuring out how many times one should have sexual intercourse.
Men often neglect their own part to play in this whole scenario. The sperms need to be of the correct constitution, correct shape and correct motility too, or else, however fertile the women may be, impregnation does not occur naturally. A way of ensuring that the sperms are undamaged is by wearing boxers instead of briefs. Boxers help in keeping the testicles from overheating and damaging sperms.
For both women and men, the anatomical and hormonal factors are not the only ones to be monitored and corrected. In most cases, failure to conceive may result from an improper diet, undue stress, the use of drugs like alcohol and nicotine, and even environmental factors such as proximity to harmful doses of pesticides. Abstinence from such factors goes a long way in ensuring a pregnancy.
One should always keep in mind that the holistic approach to solving a problem is the optimal way to tackle infertility. Getting regular health checkups, taking supplements to combat existing problem, exercising and stress reduction techniques are only part of the holistic solution to infertility which considers the problem as part of a whole unlike the conventional approach which tackles a specific body organ in its attempt to heal. The holistic approach is not only a surefire way to increase your chances of conception it also guarantees a safe and healthy pregnancy.

If there is any drawback to the Pregnancy Miracle ebook, it’s that it contains so much information, that some readers may find it a bit overwhelming. Those who are looking for a quick start type of pregnancy program, might be a bit intimated at first. The good part however, is that even these types of readers can feel confident and assured that it will be worth the effort because this will literally be the last book they ever have to buy on the subject.
