Moringa oleifera, known for centuries by developing nations as an important nutritional supplement with a
variety of medicinal properties, has recently been made available as Zija™, the first commercially-promoted
Moringa oleifera-containing product sold in the U.S. Unlike other nutritional supplements, Zija provides very
low-calorie, quality protein dietary supplementation (containing 19 of the 20 most common amino acids).
In addition, Zija shows considerable promise as a lower-carbohydrate, lower-fat alternative to common
liquid dietary supplements, and may serve to reverse the effects of many nutrient-depleting prescription and
non-prescription drugs. With significant botanical and medical published research in both the academic
and scientific literature, and with substantial ongoing research from the international community, the
addition of Moringa oleifera into the daily diet shows considerable promise as an adjunct to improving health
in a variety of important ways.
