Zija Launches Innovative Moringa-Based Protein Shake

Moringa oleifera, the “miracle tree” beloved by superfood fans everywhere, is coming to consumers in a brand-new form from Zija International.

The health-products maker has rolled out a new protein shake mix, Core Moringa Plant Protein, which contains a complete protein extracted from the leaves of moringa oleifera. The process of extracting this protein was developed by Zija’s Chief Operating Officer, Joshua Plant, Ph.D. Though no stranger to the superfood—Zija has a variety of moringa-based products in its portfolio—Plant set out to discover new ways to tap into the health benefits of the tree, which delivers more than 90 vitamins, minerals, vital proteins, antioxidants and omega oils.

“Although Moringa has been revered by different cultures around the world for thousands of years because of its diverse benefits and uses—and is continually studied and cited by the health, science and academic communities—it’s personally exciting to find new ways to make it accessible to everyday people as a way to naturally nourish the body,” Plant said in a news release.

Taken gram for gram, Moringa leaves outshine many conventional health foods in terms of nutrient density. They contain four times the calcium of milk, three times the potassium of bananas and seven times the vitamin C of oranges, to name a few. Zija has brought these benefits to market in a vegan protein powder also free of gluten and soy. Each serving of Core Moringa Plant Protein packs 20 grams of moringa, pea and rice proteins. The product is now available in Dutch Chocolate and Vanilla Bean flavors.
