Our story begins with one man viewing a documentary about a plant grown in far away lands. His interest piqued as he observed people being sustained by consuming small amounts of this "miracle tree", which is being called "the most nutrient-rich plant ever discovered." This man was Ken Brailsford, a pioneer in the nutritional supplement industry, the "Father of Herbal Encapsulation", and the Founder of Zija International.
Ken began asking the right questions and learning as much as he could from scientists, biochemists and pharmacologists the world over. He worked closely with Monica Marcu, Ph.D., a highly respected botanical researcher and clinical pharmacologist, as well as the author of "Miracle Tree", a book about Moringa's qualities and benefits. He also enlisted the help of Russ Bianchi world-renowned Scientist and Food Formulator, to develop new ways to maximize Moringa's amazing health benefits. The result is Zija's collection of Moringa-based products including nutritionals, natural energy drinks, a weight management system, and a line of skin care products.
Ongoing Moringa research has been validated with hundreds of thousands of positive individual experiences. Moringa is changing lives every day, and Zija is positioned to deliver it to the world!
