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. Kenneth Brailsford holds a bachelor of science in economics from Brigham Young University (BYU), which recently ranked eighth in the country among the universities with the most social media engagement.
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.

Packed with vitamins and nutrients, moringa oleifera offers a wide variety of health benefits. The following are just a few:
– Combats free radicals. Moringa oleifera contains several antioxidants, including flavonoids, polyphenols, and ascorbic acid, which help counteract free radicals, which are a source of cell damage, oxidative stress, and inflammation.
– Protects the heart. The leaf powder of moringa oleifera helps control blood lipid and cholesterol levels and helps prevent plaque from forming in the arteries, thus improving cardiovascular health.
– Boosts the immune system. Rich in iron and vitamin A, moringa oleifera helps the body’s immune system to fight infections. Multiple studies have also shown the plant to be effective as an anti-cancer agent, particularly in colon and breast cancers.
