Moringa…an herbal multi vitamin

My favorite type of vitamin is one that is made from whole food. Most vitamins today are processed and are not easily digestible. What’s the point? You spend an arm and a leg for something that is going to run right through your system.

After my last miscarriage, I knew something was wrong with my body but didn’t know what it was. Over a course of almost two years I spent lots of time and money trying to find the right supplement to help. Things would work for a time and then stop or help one symptom but make others worse.

It took that long for me to find a doctor that would listen and low and behold, I tested positive for antibodies which confirmed my suspicion of Hashimoto’s.

Shortly after my diagnosis of Hashi’s, a friend introduced me to Zija, which is made from Moringa. I will fully admit that while I was happy she was having success and losing tons of weight, I wasn’t sure it was for me.

Moringa - Moringa oleifera, LamkAfter a bit, I got over that Zija was from a MLM company but started looking at moringa. Whoa! Talk about a nutrient rich plant! I watched a portion of a Discovery Channel documentary that compelled me to look further in moringa.

Moringa is a plant that has been around in other countries for ages and has been successfully used for many conditions. One of the two main things that interested me were it’s uses as a natural anti inflammatory (which is a HUGE help for anyone suffering from an autoimmune disorder.) and it has been used to boost the immune system. Both are conditions I struggle with due to the Hashi’s.

My next step was to decide if Zija was cracked up to what it stated, there are TONS of different moringa distributors. However, I could not find another company, other than Zija, that used all parts of the plant, which make the benefits even more valuable.

While the differences were subtle at first, I realized that I was feeling much better on a lot of different levels.

I also had a chance to use it right off the bat while I had a horrible headache. With in minutes of using moringa, the pain was relieved. That was impressive.

While I do not consume Zija every day anymore, I really attribute the changes and improvement to my health to moringa and diet changes.

For full disclosure, I do sell Zija. If you’re interested or have questions, please message me on my Facebook page, Simply Healthy. I am not trying to sell you product, I just have been getting a lot of questions about what multi vitamin I take for my Hashimoto’s. And the truth is, I really like to endorse products that I know work.

*UPDATE: I no longer sell Zija as they have changed the formulation of the product. If you are interested I can help you find someone that can give you information about the changes but I no longer use the product.

    I read your article regarding Moringa and my boyfriend just got me started on it due to the Hashimoto’s I suffer day in/day out for (6) yrs which consist of major inflammation & joint pain. My question to you is which Multivitamin are your taking? I have tried dozens which are gluten free and yet contain the ingredients such as cabbage, broccoli, kale which are all bad for the autoimmune disease. Can you please help me?

      Hi Valerie. I’m sorry you are struggling. Hashi’s can be so hard because of how quickly our bodies fluctuate. Moringa should be great for a multi vitamin and help for the inflammation. I currently am not using a multi just because of a protocol I’m doing to kill a viral load I have going on.

      Systemic enzymes are a great help for inflammation.

      Let me know if you have any more questions.
