29 Mar 2016 We started out with a product called Zija...that is how I found out about the Moringa content of the product and we stopped taking the Zija because it was expensive. We had watched the video about the Moringa Tree that was the bigger picture for me...the benefits of the tree itself that grows in India and how it is used in Africa to battle malnutrition. I was amazed with the benefits and story behind the miracle tree...how it's grown and cultivated..We buy the powder down here in Florida and have vegetable capsules we fill ourselves. The leaves from the Moringa Tree can be eatten as well..The taste is that of horseradish. It is truly an amazing miracle from God.
