14 Reasons You Should Eat Moringa

We have a nutritionally depleted society in the US.  Fast food abounds and is SO convenient.  When one shops at the grocery store, our isles are filled with processed, high sodium, high sugar foods,  and synthetic foods.  The nutrients in our foods have been highly depleted over the years. 

I know when I was younger – in the 1970’s our food supply was great.  We were eating “organic” back then, and not realizing we were eating “organic”.  Today our farmers have to jump through so many hoops to label something “organic”.  The regular farmers have zero hoops to jump through to put tons of chemicals on our food supply and not have to label them with the chemicals they do put on.  

What can you do to make your health better?  I know for me, I make a very conscious effort to eat healthy.  I eat many fruits, vegetables, grass fed lean meat, and other healthy foods.  I do limit the processed foods as much as I can.  Am I perfect? Absolutely not.  I do know my body appreciates when I make healthy choices.  I also know, I have to add supplements to my diet in order to get the healthy results that I’m looking for!

I played tennis for 25 years.  I was a great tennis player and played 4 days/week.  I have to say, my knees had taken a toll playing on hard court.  I finally quit in my mid 30’s as I could not do side-to-side movement without pain.  I also started to have issues climbing stairs or any type of climbing movement.  Being in my mid 30’s and having these types of issues did affect my workouts as well. I was and still am an avid exerciser.  I could not do squats, lunges, leg extensions, etc.  Pretty much….any leg stuff was out.  I always had knee pain.  And…when the weather changed!  Are you kidding me? I had pain.  It REALLY sucked!  Instead of playing tennis, I have taken up golf.  I will say, golf isn’t as hard on the knees, but there are other joints it takes its toll on.

Fast forward 15 years and I now feel like I’m 20 years younger!  I thank all of this to moringa, an asian superfood more people should be eating.

What sets Zija’s Moringa apart from the rest?  There are 5 categories that affect the quality of Moringa.

  1.  Species.  There are 13 species of Moringa.  All have different nutritional content and value.  Moringa Oleifera is the most nutrient dense.  Zija makes sure it is using the leaves, fruit, and seeds.
  2.  Sourcing.  Moringa’s nutrient value is not created equal.  Look where the moringa is sources.  India, near the base of the Himalayas is the best location to grow Moringa.
  3. Shade drying is a more expensive approach that Zija uses.  What this entails is the consumer gets the most nutrient dense Moringa.  Sun drying the leaves can lead to ultraviolet damage to the product.  Hence, a less effective product.
  4. Blend.  Zija uses the leaves with are high in amino acids, the seeds which are high in fatty acids, and the fruit which contain powerful minerals for cell-to-cell communication.
  5. Manufacturing.  This process can be very difficult on a product.  Zija goes above and beyond to make sure the manufacturing process provides the highest nutrient value of the Moringa.
