Surviving the flu
Our Flu Survival Kit
Knowing our son's past medical history, we knew he was trying to improve his health. With his and our busy schedules, we don’t see each other as often as we’d like. Ben was pretty discreet about his progress, but it became more evident over time that he looked better, acted differently, and was losing some weight.
Eventually he gave Carolyn a packet of a product called "Smart Mix" and just said try this. (she tossed it in the cabinet along with all our other failed products) Ben called a week later and asked if she had tried it. Answer, NO! Hadn’t even thought about it. She asked what it was and what was in it. He said something nutritional that he’d been using for three months. By now we had noticed some differences. He’d also given me a box of Smart Mix that I had tossed on the counter and ignored. Unknown to me Carolyn had started mixing it up in the morning while I was at my desk trying to get focused. In a week, she “confessed” and said she hadn’t taken any Tylenol for a week, had more energy later in the day and was not having the nagging fatigue she had suffered from for years. Don’t get this wrong, she still gets tired, we’re in our 60’s, but not the mind numbing, stupid tiredness and overwhelming fatigue.
So now, I’m intrigued, start my normal routine of investigation. I used to be a claims investigator and LOVE doing research; just the facts, Ma’am. So I try tearing this product and the company apart. Third party web sites, Moringa research, etc, etc. Can’t find anything negative except the usual suspects, other obvious product sellers trying to tear down through negative “blogs”, and so called “informational” sites, people with an axe to grind, wah, wah, wah. But nothing substantially bad about the product or company. Only good things about Moringa, Ken Brailsford, and a wealth of positive reviews on Zija International including some from other Network Marketers, many of whom are distributors because of their admiration for the company and it’s business plan, which THEY say is the best in the business. Oh, and the integrity of the products.
Now I try the product.
Long story short. Thanks to giving our body pure nutrition from Moringa, we have this plastic tub full of all the OTC drugs and “nutritional supplements” we used to take. I no longer take 8-12 Tylenol Arthritis Strength, those 2 X 600mg each time release ones to deal with the headaches and neck pain. No more allergy meds, both prescription and OTC’s. Get up and feel refreshed. Have not had so much as a sniffle this winter.
Most diseases, including the flu, are caused by inflammation. Building up the immune system is critical to combatting disease. Nutrition is the key to immune system health. While doing my research I found numerous sources that confirmed one key fact. You cannot get adequate nutrition from food today due to the degradation of the soil, air and water supplies. Also, over processing, chemical additives, fake sweeteners, etc, etc. As Americans, we consume on average 3000 calories a day because the body is still hungry and our brain tells us we need more food. But we’re not getting nutrition. Most over the counter vitamins are synthetic. The body doesn’t recognize them as food, so doesn’t process them as food. Little if any of the “vitamin” content gets into your system. That’s why most vitamins have such large percentages listed for each of the nutrients. Your body can only get a VERY small percentage (2-3%) of the listed nutrient.
MORINGA by ZIJA IS DIFFERENT!! Don’t take anyone’s word for it. First do your research. Then prove it to yourself.
The nutrients in the Moringa products from Zija are 100% bioavailable and 100% natural. These products are what is called “enzymatically alive” due to the way they process the plant leaves, seeds, seed pods, flower. It’s like they took the tree, shredded it and put it in a package for you to use.
