Blood Levels
I began drinking Zija in November of 2009 on the recommendations of Bobby and Anelle Melloan.  After drinking Zija for one month, the pain in my hands, back and legs disappeared.  Six weeks later, I noticed my blood sugar had dropped and was staying between 95-120. Before I began drinking Zija it tested anywhere from 180-190.  The only thing that had changed in my diet was the Zija.  I decided to do my own experiment.  I thought maybe I just wanted it to work well for me, so, I went off of Zija for one month.  Needless to say, the pain in my hands, back and legs came back.  Not only my pain returned, but my blood sugar spike 40 points and almost returned to the high level it was before I began to drink Zija.  I began drinking Zija again and taking the XM3 capsules.  I now have more energy than I have ever had before.  I am on Zija for life!!

My goal was to regain some energy and be healthier. After six weeks of the drink my cholesterol went from 263 to 146. My doctor was amazed and so was I. My husband lost 2 inches in his waist after just six weeks. We both have more energy.
Debbie Fleming – Lexington, KY

I have been doing the XM3 drink and the smart mix since last October. I have lost 17 lbs. My husband is a diabetic; his blood sugar has dropped 150 points.  He was taking ibuprofen due to arthritis in his back and he no longer takes that and no longer has back pain.
Margaret Bails – Albany, KY

The product has done some amazing things for me. I have been consuming the smart drink for 14 months, I have been off my blood pressure meds for a year, my diabetes meds for 8 months, and my joint pain in my shoulder has been virtually eliminated. The opportunity has been great; the extra cash comes in handy with great opportunity for lots of growth.

Thanks for the opportunity to share just some of the results that I have had since being on Zija. Let me start by saying as a former athlete and catcher for 15 plus years I have suffered knee and back pain for quite some time. Even to the point of taking 8-10 ibuprofen a day and still not getting much relief. Last year I started on blood pressure meds due to slightly elevated blood pressure from many of the stresses of everyday life. I am most excited to share that I recently had a complete blood work done and was able to compare it to one from exactly a year ago. I am excited to see in black and white some of the positive results from consuming Zija since Oct. My total cholesterol went from 181 to 154, triglycerides 128 to 73, LDL/HDL ratio went from 2.6 to 2.2 and I am also no longer on blood pressure med and nothing for joint or back pain. I am so thankful for the friend and now my business partner that introduced me to Zija."

On May 9, 2009 I began consuming Zija Smart Drink primarily for overall nutritional benefits not really thinking much about it helping with any of the medical conditions that I was experiencing. On May 27, I had a regularly scheduled 6 month visit with my cardiologist. Over the weeks prior to my visit I had begun to take my blood pressure readings on a daily basis. I had noticed a continuing improvement over that period of time and shared the readings with him during my visit. I had not made any connection in my mind to Zija at that time. The cardiologist suggested I begin the weaning process off of one of my heart medications. I did so and subsequently have been able to go off it completely. The week following my cardiologist visit I had my cholesterol checked since it had not been done for more than a year. To my surprise, my cholesterol readings were good, triglycerides good, and HDL/LDL ratio good. This had not been the case for over 6 years. The only intervention over this period of time was my consumption of Zija Smart Drink. Of course, after my cholesterol readings I did make the association with Zija and am grateful for the sponsor who introduced me to the product and business opportunity. It also helps me as an independent distributor to be passionate about the product when I have seen personal results of my own."

My Cholesterol was 199. It is steady at 145 now with ZIJA!!"

Stomach Issues and Allergies

For as long as I can remember I have had abdominal pain that no one could ever figure out. After many visits to many different doctors I was diagnosed with crohns disease in 2001. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s an inflammatory bowel disease and an auto immune disorder which means your immune system turns on itself and attacks different organs or systems in your own body.  Mine just happen to be in my intestines. Since that time I have been put on 11 different medications with an unknown amount of horrible side effects, and have been through so many tests I have lost count and those tests have their own set of side effects. I have never had any long term relief of my symptoms, and in 2004 I was getting worse. I went in for a laproscopically, which means they go in a small hole in your abdomen just to look around. However, when my surgeon took the first look he had to open my abdomen up. The ulcerations were too large and I had what are called fisulas coming from my small intestine tunneling to other organs/areas. They had to remove 12 inches of my colon and my appendix. During recovery my liver went into failure, and no one could figure out what was wrong with it including the clinic where my liver was sent. My skin and eyes were turning yellow and my skin was also itching very badly. I ended up finding out that I had another auto immune disorder of the liver where my bile ducts harden and scar down and this causes the bile that is supposed to go through my liver to back up into my system/skin. This is secondary to my crohns disease so if it’s treated appropriately then my liver disease will also be treated. However, we still hadn’t found anything to treat my crohns disease sufficiently. Over the years I have come to my wits end. I was heading for another surgery and the symptoms were getting worse. My marriage was affected as well as my children and their needs and because my immune system was so compromised my health was continuing to decline with a number of different diagnosis such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol/triglycerides, chronic nausea, kidney stones, acid reflux with ulcerations in my esophagus, insomnia and I could go on and on. On October 12th, 2009 Brian Wentz and Jason Keltner told me about Zija. I started drinking the cans, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I was also taking one XM3 capsule a day. I have not had any symptoms, not one, since October 14th, 2009. I have been able to discontinue several of my medications, I no longer have to take vitamins or anything for my allergies, insomnia, acid reflux, nausea and I am working on going off the others. Zija has improved my quality of life, my family, and my marriage. It was like I was awake for the first time since I could remember. No more pain, no more itching, and no more fatigue. I have also lost 30 lbs. in a little over 3 months. I have also had blood work done and my cholesterol came down 90 points. My triglycerides came down 115 points and my liver enzymes are lower than they have ever been. I cannot say enough about the benefits of Zija. I am so thankful to God for putting the people in my life that led me to Zija. Make a change in your life today, TRY ZIJA!!!!
Kelly Shope – Harrodsburg, KY

I recently completed my first marathon. When I started training I had the worst joint pain. I started using Zija and had no more joint pain. I am now off all my medication except for my M.S. shot. That means no more HBP meds or anxiety meds. Praise God for what Zija has done for me!
Dave Levee – Crestwood, KY

I have had Crohn’s disease since I was 16, with 2 surgeries taking out 18 inches of my colon but my symptoms always came back. Since starting Zija I have been symptom free. I have lost 14 lbs. and have not even tried to lose any weight.
Jolene Waldrep – Harrodsburg, KY

Zija found me. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor July 14, 2009. Not wanting to take the usual route of radiation, operations, etc., I looked into alternate methods that might help my situation. I went to San Diego and got some herbs that have shown promise to reduce/eliminate the tumor. Upon returning home, Peggy Rice called me and said I had to talk to a man named Russ Bianchi. She told him of my situation and he wanted me to call him. I did and not only did he tell me about nutritional changes I needed to make to prevent this tumor from growing and eventually disappear. Additionally, he told about Zija and was so passionate about the product, knowing that it had the nutritional ingredients that I needed.  As of January 14, 2010, my tumor which is more or less inoperable has been stable.
Michele Beck – Elizabethtown, KY

Our family has seen great results with Zija. Our daughter has battled allergies for 2 years and is now off her allergy meds. Our son is a cancer survivor and his immune system has been great with Zija. I dealt with migraines and other medical concerns before Zija. My overall health has increased noticeably.
Stephanie Lally – Crestwood, KY

Zija is a drink I started buying for my son to take who had cancer. He said it made him feel better. I decided to start drinking it myself due to high blood pressure, stiff joints. I began to feel better and have more energy. Zija is a drink I will stay on.

I am a 45 year old mom of three. A son 22, a son 14 and a daughter 9. I have M.S. and several other health problems. I have been on a number of medications to try to help the conditions. I was very active as a child. I cheered and did gymnastics all through school and continued to be active after marriage. About a year after I had my first child I began having a few health problems. As time went on in my early 30's I noticed I did not have as much strength in my hands and some other small things. I had my third child at the age of 37. Everything was so gradual I didn't see something like this happening. My mom took sick in April of 2003 and passed away in April of 2006. I was the main care giver and it became to be a very hard and stressful time, as many people know. In the summer of 2005, my mom's last summer here on earth, stress was hard to deal with more and more. That summer the entire left side of my face dropped the corner of my eye, my check and the left corner of my mouth was downward and slightly drawn. At first the doctor thought it could be Bell's Palsy from the stress and it did pull back up. But, it happened again, this time it stayed for several days and there was also a heavy feeling all the way down. Now the doctor ordered an MRI, but still did not think much would show. I remember the way his voice sounded when he told me the results. " The radiologist said it looks like M.S. You already have 15 to 20 scars on your brain and some are in the cerebellum." So I had my cry and went on. I still had mom to take care of. I seen a neurologist and treatment begins. Mom passed away the following April 2006. I had gotten to a point I felt like I had no strength left for anything. I would take my kids to school, get back home and sleep most of the day. I sometimes would have to pull off the road coming back home from taking them to school because I could not stay awake. The doctor put me on a strong prescription, considered a controlled substance, to keep me awake. It worked and the side effects were terrible. I have always prayed that there would be something out there that could help me and believe me I have tried everything. My sister-n-law ( Teresa Thompson ) introduced me to Zija. I went to a meeting with her and heard one of my friends (Pat Luttrell) give her testimony. That was it because I knew how sick she had been a few years ago. I knew what she was saying was true. I may always be on my injection which is Copaxone but now I actually have my life back without the medications. Zija keeps me awake now and keeps me going and I can do things I want to do. I just want everyone to know that there is something out there to help. ZIJA! I am on the Zija smart drink and capsules. I am also on the Zija tea for other health issues. I feel so much better and have also lost 14 lbs. in two months. I want everyone to know what this can do for you. Please, for yourself, try it.

I started using when a close friend of mine introduced me to it!  He asked me to trust him and I did and boy am I glad I did!!  I lost 20 pounds the first month and have steadily lost over the course of a little over 4 months!  I have now lost 50 pounds and feel better than I have in several years.  I love it!  I didn’t start in the business until the last 5 weeks after I went to Nashville to the regional meeting and found out that all of the people that were having success were just normal people just like I am!  I am a teacher and basketball coach and very busy!  When I got home from Nashville I told my wife that I think we can do this!  So, with her help and backing we have been able to reach Gold and have completed our first week of Platinum in a little over 5 weeks! I figured out that the less I knew the better because the leaders of Team Elite have made it very easy to succeed!  All I had to do was what they told me too, which is follow the simple steps of the training!  I have personally hosted or presented at 15’s in the last 4 weeks, and now we are starting to see some of the great financial benefits that are available through Zija!My whole family is now on and we love it and we are really excited about what the future holds!

After seeing my 42 year old friend run marathon after marathon I decided that I could also get in shape and some day run my own marathon. Upon making that decision I began a running routine only to develop Hamstring tendinitis which made it just to walk.  Lucky for me my Co-Teacher, and soon to be Sponsor, David Terrebonne me to the weight loss system of Zija.In week one I was losing a pound a day.  In the weeks and months to follow I have lost 32 pounds and am now 200 for the first time in 20 years. My energy levels are back to my college days and I no longer need my Coffee. This extra energy is when two and a half year old daughter wants to play (another reason to take care of my health). Thank you Zija (and T-Bone) for the energy, complements, confidence, better sleep and extra money that all comes from your amazing product.
I have now began a running routine and a goal of running my first marathon in January of 2012.

I first heard about Zija when I served Chris and Jon Charles.  I am a waitress, and hearing about different networking and/or weight loss opportunities were an everyday event.  I have found myself repeatedly being fooled by different weight management systems.  And as I was at one time reaching almost 300 pounds, losing weight is something I take very seriously.  No matter how hard they tried, I continued to ignore their conversations about Zija and how much it would help me.  I insisted on sticking to infamous Atkins Diet, which had worked before.  However, I kept from them the fact that my doctor had told me I was no longer allowed to stay on the diet because my kidneys were starting to fail.  To stand my ground against this "miracle product", I insisted Atkins was the only way to go.

Finally after almost a month of ignoring them and only trying one sample of the product, I decided I would try it again.  I had repeated conversations with them every time they would come in, and slowly I learned to build a trust with what they were telling me.  I prayed I wouldn't be made a fool, as it had happened so many other times with so many other weight management systems.  By this time, I was well over my initial weight that I had been when I started the Atkins Diet.  On March 17th, 2010, I weighed 192 pounds.

I finally bought my first package of Zija in mid March and received it on March 17th. Within my first week I lost 4 pounds.  Every week afterwards, I noticed that I was losing more and more.  Finally, after the 4th week, I weighed myself and I had lost a total of 20 pounds!!  I cried for over an hour!!  With such an emotional change, I kept up the system. I was finally a believer!!

I have been doing the Zija Weight Management System for 7 weeks as of April 30th.  I have lost a total of 32 pounds.  I have become beyond emotional with my weight loss!!
I cry every time I buy new clothes, I am so excited!!  I haven't been this size in over 5 years.  I cannot begin to explain how much I appreciate Chris and Jon for sticking with me and never giving up on me.  Without them, who knows where and what size I would be.

Today I am 160 pounds.  Zija has changed my life in way that I cannot even begin to imagine.  I thank God everyday for such a blessing and the opportunity to help others. Life has only gotten better.

I have been an athlete my whole life; I played every sport imaginable growing up, I was a dual sport athlete in college (golf and basketball), and have been Campbellsville University’s women’s golf and swim coach for the past four years.  Needless to say, physical fitness and health are very important to me!  Five years ago I married my high school sweetheart (Jared Hines) and in the past two years we have been blessed with two beautiful baby boys (Griffin 2 yrs., Brody 10 months).  I have very little to complain about, but was unhappy with the fact that I had gained 60 lbs with each of those two pregnancies and no matter what I did, I could not get that last 20 lbs of weight back off….. until I was introduced to Zija’s weight management system!  In the first month of consistently taking our products, 15 pounds melted off (without exercise).  I am now three months in, have lost an additional 7 pounds and am continuing to lose (oh, and did I mention that I have a TON of energy now!)
Zija’s products are for everyone!  My two year old, Griffin, had terrible allergy problems. .  3 oz a day of the smart drink for 3 weeks and I was no longer chasing him around with a tissue wiping watery eyes and a runny nose!  My aunt had struggled with severe eczema for a very long time and had tried every cream and medication known with no success; she has been symptom and pain free for two months now because of the smart mix!  I could go on and on because my entire family now enjoys the benefits of Zija’s liquid nutritional and XM3 products!
It wasn’t until the beginning of June that I decided to really look into the business opportunity that Zija offers.  I knew that my household was going to continue to consume the products, so I thought why not share what we had found with a few people and see if we could get our products paid for.  By utilizing the tools and systems Team ELITE had available for me (and my great up line including Shaun and Paige Hord (Gold), Vision’s Salon (Platinum), and Chris Estes (Diamond ELITE)… Getting my products paid for was almost too easy! This past week I rank advanced to Bronze!!!  I love the thought of being able to positively impact the health and financial situations of the people that I share the products and opportunity with…and the check that comes to me in the mail each week …. Well, I’m okay with that too!

On June 4 2010, Terry Birdsong invited my wife and I to a meeting.  He wanted to share information with us about a product he was taking that was making him feel better.
I went in his office, had a seat on a very comfortable couch. About to doze off, I was tossed a can of the smart drink, then a can of XM3 energy drink.  By the end of the meeting, I was alert and feeling good.

My wife and I decided to sign up and try Zija.  We also put our son on it.  On June 5th I was 236 lbs, wore a XXL shirt and a 42-inch pant.  I was taking blood pressure and cholesterol medicines, suffered from headaches, arthritis, and numbness in my face.

Today Sept. 7th I weigh 186 lbs.  I wear a size large shirt and a 36 inch pant.  I no longer take blood pressure or cholesterol medicines.

When I went to the doctor for a checkup, she asked if I was still taking my meds.  I told her no, and she looked surprised.  I told her I was taking zija.  She took my blood pressure and it was 112 over 70. She said whatever you are doing keep doing it.  I quit my meds “cold turkey” but I do not recommend anyone doing that.

I was skeptical about this when I started but let me tell you Zija has changed my life!  I feel better than I have in years.  I do not sit in front of the TV anymore.  I started going to my mom and dad’s house and helping them.  I mowed their yard, painted a deck, and tilled their garden.  They noticed the change in me and wanted to know what was going on.  They knew how bad I had been feeling and was worried about me.  I told them about Zija and they immediately said we want it.  My mom and dad are 79 and 80.  They have many health problems, but after taking Zija for a couple of months, they have gotten off over half of their medicines. They are on the go all of the time, swimming, shopping, and just enjoying life as my wife and I are doing now.

My wife has lost twenty-seven pounds and my son has lost twenty-five pounds.  They are right beside me cheering me on.  We have made a decision as a family to get health together.  Zija has given me a new life and a way to help my family and friends feel better.

You know fear will stop you from making a change. I thought it was too late for me. But I also knew I had faith in God that he could help me turn around the problems I had caused myself.

As a wild child, I was always on Ritalin for ADHD, and even now, as an adult, I use Strattera to help control mood swings and daily focus. After 6 years of romping and stomping in the United States Marine Corps I realized along the way, I had done something to my lowest vertebrae - now I know it is broken and fractured. So now I deal with constant pain on many different levels from inflammation and arthritis surrounding this injury. Today I am husband to my beautiful wife Nadia, proud father of 3 wonderful kids and we are passionate about serving God and His people! As a former U.S. Marine and competitive athlete, I am also excited about health and fitness! I have an active family, a full-time corporate career and after-hours small business responsibilities, so my wife and I are both extremely busy. After my friend Jonathan McNabb invited me to "Google Moringa," Nadia and I did some research on this so called, "2008 Plant of the Year" and then we took action! Since then, by following a simple and duplicatable system anyone can do, I've been able to get my product paid for quickly by generating a significant part time residual income, from simply telling others about it! It is now running rampid in our community and the product and opportunity has also lead to us directly and indirectly impacting the lives of friends, family and those around us.

Since consuming the original smart drink beverage, I have cut my Straterra prescription for ADHD in half, after finding increased focus and mental clarity as many do simply from the nutrition found in Zija. I've also found a dramatic reduction in inflammation and in everyday aches and pains associated with my lower back injury and its accompanying arthritis. I immediately noticed a change in my digestive system, also reducing the pain and pressure around my broken vertebrae. I work out regularly to strengthen my back and since drinking Zija daily and XM3 as needed, Nadia and I both have noticed improved "work out" performance, more energy, and much faster muscle recovery.
In general, I just feel better. I sleep better now more than ever and my wife and I have eliminated several prescription medications, saving us money. Now the additional income has grown into house payment size commissions, helping to pay for enough product for my wife and I, our baby, our 4-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son, and we are on track to replacing my salary this year - with part time efforts!

Zija is a product that you cannot help telling people about, it's more of an obligation now if anything - to help others! The time spent on the business is fun and fits into our daily routines, as we simply LISTEN and then tell our friends and family our story, along with others who mention issues that we all have, like arthritis, tendinitis, joint pains and other aches, allergies, lack of energy and problems dealing with weight management. In the end, Moringa and the opportunity surrounding it can help us to better serve God, our family and other people more effectively by providing better all around health, along with additional income streams. This frees up valuable resources, allowing us to give more of what we're given! Two doors the Zija Opportunity and income created has opened for my family in 2009... the blessing of serving on a Mission Trip in India and also an opportunity to invest in and develop another small business in the fitness industry! So because of the healing properties of Moringa, now in the form of Zija, this business opportunity is just as great as the product! We look forward to sharing our story, and we love helping people, so feel free to contact us by using the contact info below if you have any questions.
God Bless, Cheers & Drink Life In,

I had severe pain in both knees. I had allergies, and asthma. Not only have I lost 37 lbs., but I have no knee pain, no allergies and no asthma. I also had a hyper-active 12 year old son who’s very smart but was not living up to his potential. Now he is leveled out and an A student. Now he tells me he can’t wait until he is old enough to do the business. I love being a part of a product and company that has the vision to truly impact the lives of so many souls and look forward to do my part in taking the message of Zija to the world.
