A pioneer in the herbal encapsulation field, Kenneth Brailsford leads the private equity firm KEB Enterprises and focuses on high growth investment opportunities. In early 2018, Kenneth Brailsford resumed the position of CEO of Zija International, a company he founded. Employing the hashtag #NaturalHealthRevolution, Zija maintains operations across more than 50 countries and helps people achieve Life Unlimited.
The impetus for Zija occurred in 2005, when Mr. Brailsford learned about the remarkable health benefits of Moringa oleifera, a plant native to South Asia with leaves rich in protein, calcium, essential vitamins, and other nutrients. Through Zija, he created a network that offers thousands of entrepreneurs the opportunity to access income and relationship-focused marketing experience that they otherwise could not have gained.
With Zija having been recognized by Utah Business Magazine as the “Fastest-Growing Company in Utah,” Mr. Brailsford described the firm as one with an aggressive growth strategy, coupled with a commitment to creating a legacy that will live on for decades.
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.
