Zija’s® Family of Brands Recommendations

Russ is often asked why Zija® International provides so much technical support to its distributors. His answer is simple, “We truly care about everyone‟s health, and to those whom you equally share these wonderful and nutritious Moringa products with.”

This “share” concept is not ours; it is our Founder’s, Mr. Ken Brailsford. With that thought in mind, this one word truly is the basis for our slogan: “DRINK LIFE IN”(SM).

There is not any other single source of truly absorbable complete nutrition available from just one plant, (that IS provided in all Zija® products by Moringa oleifera).

Due to the many questions, e-mails, and phone calls that we receive, we felt that it would be prudent to distribute to new distributors (and current distributors), thoughts about how we should use and consume the Zija® product line.

In this briefing, we are providing very specific recommendations and considerations regarding the intake of the Zija® Smart Drink, the Zija® Smart Mix, the Zija® XM3–Extreme Moringa Drink, and the Zija® XM+ Mix, the Zija® Weight Management System – to include the Zija® XM-AM Caps, the Zija® XM-PM Caps, and the Zija® Miracle Tea:

1. The Zija® Smart Mix Beverage (Powder):
Zija’s® Smart Drink is overflowing with cell-ready nutrients, antioxidants, and vital proteins. It is a refreshing and nourishing beverage for everyday use. This beverage is 100% natural and contains over 90 verifiable nutrients in each serving. It is overflowing with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, omega oils, and vital proteins.

Zija’s® Smart Mix is a convenient, easy-to-open packet that allows you to instantly mix up Zija® anywhere! Simply add the Zija® Smart Mix packet in 8 to 12 ounces of cold water.

The Smart Mix gives you balance and variety as nature intended it. Drink Life In (SM) with the Smart Mix! It is also very convenient for traveling.

For the best efficacious potential, this drink should be consumed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, or at least 2 hours after a meal and 15 minutes before any meal or beverage other than water. Zija® was designed to be fully absorbable by the body when taken on an empty stomach, and any other foods or beverages consumed before it or with it, will reduce its bioavailability.

We recommend mixing the powder with 8-12 ounces of water. However, for even more fluid intake, another suggestion would be to mix the powder in 20 ounces of water the night before and to place it in the refrigerator. This will allow the powder mix to infuse into the water and potentially allow it to have an even greater impact upon the cellular absorption.

2. The Zija® XM3 Extreme Moringa Drink:
Zija’s® XM3 delivers real, all-natural metabolic benefits with none of the harmful neurostimulants, artificial ingredients, flavors, preservatives, stabilizers, and sweeteners, of the so-called “energy drink” brands. In an energy beverage industry teeming with unsubstantiated claims and an overabundance of hype, many energy drinks simply offer “false” energy and can actually be harmful. XM3, on the other hand, works! Its energy enhancement, appetite suppression, and nutrition all result from safe and all-natural ingredients. XM3 is a highly potent and naturally occurring Moringa-based beverage, containing dozens of essential nutrients from the remarkable Moringa Oleifera plant.

  • The recommended serving amount for the average 150 pound person is; 2 ounces.
  • The recommended serving amount for the 200-300 pound person is; 3 ounces.
  • The recommended serving amount for the 300 plus pound person is; 3-4 ounces.
  • Drink 1 to 3 ounces in the morning and more as desired throughout the day.
  • However, do not consume more than 8 ounces per day.
  • Consuming XM3 after 5 pm is not recommended so as to not disrupt sleep patterns.
  • XM3 is not suitable for people under the age of 18, or those sensitive to caffeine or other stimulants.
  • You may mix 1-3 ounces with either the Zija® Smart Drink or the Zija® Smart Mix.

3. The Zija® XM+ Mix:
Zija’s® XM+ Mix provides a very unique combination of the Zija’s® Smart Mix cell-ready nutrients, antioxidants, and vital proteins, along with the Zija’s® XM3 Extreme Moringa Drink and its energy enhancement, appetite suppression, and nutrition. This combination allows you to be able to get both products in one easy mix!

For best results, we recommend mixing the powder with 20-24 ounces of water the night before and to place it in the refrigerator. This will allow the powder mix to infuse into the water and potentially allow it to have an even greater impact upon the cellular absorption.

For all other recommendations, please see the Zija’s® Smart Drink and Zija’s® XM3 above.

4. The Zija® Weight Management System:
Zija’s® break-through formulas raise the bar in weight management and nutritional cleansing products. Simply put, when you combine the synergistic effects of Zija’s® proprietary blend of Moringa, Vitamins, Minerals, natural Caffeine, and many other natural ingredients – magic happens!

First and foremost, it is highly recommended and we feel even required that for the best potential affect, anyone wanting to start on the Zija® Weight Management System, will need to have been on either the Zija® Smart Drink or the Zija® Smart Mix for at least 2-4 weeks prior to starting on this product!

Also, please drink more water than the usual recommendation. This will be very beneficial in assisting detoxification, and increasing the potential weight-loss.

The Zija® XM-AM® Caps:
Potential benefits and effects: To help manage and control weight by allowing your body to burn your excess fat. This means that you will consume less food, since your body will be utilizing stored fat as an energy source, and thereby reducing hunger pangs. You will feel more energy and more satisfied with less food.

The recommended use of the Zija® XM-AM® Cap is to take one capsule orally mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon, two hours after a meal and/or on an empty stomach, and/or at least one-and-half hours before any meal. However, it is not recommended to take it later in the day, as sleep may be impaired. Do not take more than two capsules per day.
We have been asked how many XM3 Caps a person should start with. Our recommendation is that if a person tends to consume most of their food intake from wake-up to 6:00 PM, then they should start by taking one capsule mid-morning. If a person tends to consume the majority of the food intake from Noon to late evening and/or up to bedtime, then they should start by taking one capsule mid-afternoon.

We also do not recommend using any caffeinated drink, any soda or diet drink, any type of alcoholic drink, any juice, the XM3 and/or XM+ drink to take this product! Please use only water when taking this product!

We also recommend that while you are on the Zija® XM-AM Caps, you do not need to be consuming the Zija® XM3 Extreme Moringa Drink.

The Zija® XM-PM® Caps:
Potential benefits and effects: To help manage and control weight by reducing stress related cravings in the evening hours (especially sugar – if you truly want to overcome them), increased metabolic effects – burning fat (may increase evening & sleep time sweating – the effect of thermogenesis), blood sugar regulation, reduce effects of stress, potentially to help create a more restorative sleep cycle – balance, energize, rejuvenate, and revitalize the body.

The recommended use of the Zija® XM-PM® is to take one capsule daily, 30 – 60 minutes before your evening meal. We would like to add that depending upon the effect that you desire, you may change the time that you take the capsule. For example;

  • If you are using the XM-PM® as a supplement to reduce food/sugar cravings during the evening hours, take as directed.
  • If you want to use the XM-PM® as a supplement to reduce stress and potentially assist in your sleep patterns, then take the capsule 30-60 minutes before going to bed.

We also do not recommend using any caffeinated drink, any soda or diet drink, any type of alcoholic drink, any juice, or the XM3/XM+ drink to take this product! Please use only water when taking this product!
