Known as the “Father of Herbal Encapsulation,” Kenneth Brailsford founded Nature’s Sunshine in the 1970s. Kenneth Brailsford also went on to found Zija International, which sells a number of products made with Moringa oleifera.

Moringa oleifera is a tree grown in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in northwest India. The tree’s seeds, fruit, and leaves have long been used for medicinal purposes, as they contain over 90 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins, and omega oils.

Zija International’s Moringa products stand out from others in that all of the company’s trees grow on proprietary farms without chemicals. The trees are harvested by hand and dried in the shade, a process that keeps the nutrients intact.

These nutrients serve a number of purposes, such as reducing inflammation and facilitating digestion. Moringa also is taken to improve mental clarity and increase energy levels.

Zija sells Moringa in a variety of formats, including capsules and a powder to make supplement drinks. To learn more about Zija and its Moringa-based products, visit www.zijainternational.com.

The founder of Nature’s Sunshine and Zija International, Kenneth Brailsford has more than 40 years of experience in the herbal encapsulation field.

Every year, the Higher Ed Social Media Engagement Report ranks universities based on their social media engagement, as measured by follower growth and communication with followers. One of the main drivers of BYU’s high ranking is its highly-engaged body of students and alumni, who drove the university’s Twitter handle to the number five spot in the nation, a drastic jump from last year’s ranking of 21. The handle now has nearly 52,000 followers.

Another factor that helped BYU soar was its Instagram page, which jumped from 17th to 12th in the rankings. The university relies on strategies based on user-generated content, including posts by students studying abroad. Thanks to these strategies, BYU’s Instagram page has grown to include more than 91,000 followers.

A prominent figure in the nutritional supplement industry, Kenneth Brailsford has guided such companies as Nature’s Sunshine, Nature’s Labs, and Zija International. Currently, Kenneth Brailsford leads private equity firm KEB Enterprises, which maintains holdings including flour manufacturer Lehi Roller Mills.

A company with a history dating back to the early 1900s, Lehi Roller Mills was initially known as the Lehi Roller Mill and Elevator Company. Initially serving farmers in the Lehi, Utah, area, the mill benefited from a shareholder investment of $20,000 in 1905 and began producing flour the following year.

In 1910, the mill came under the ownership of George C. Robinson, an individual who established a practice of producing high-quality flour; a tradition that still continues today. Mr. Robinson owned Lehi Roller Mills for more than 25 years, during which time he grew the company to serve clients as far away as California.

Upon the death of his father, Mr. Robinson’s son, Sherman, took ownership of Lehi Roller Mills, and the Robinson family continued to play a role in the business’ management even after Sherman Robinson’s passing in 1980. Over the course of their involvement, the family on several occasions upgraded the mill’s equipment in an effort to maintain the level of quality that George C. Robinson was committed to achieving.

KEB Enterprises purchased Lehi Roller Mills in 2013. Going forward, it intends to uphold the Robinson family’s long tradition of using the finest wheat to produce the best flour.
