Ok this is for all the ones on here and even the ones who aren't familiar with MLM's. I've been involved in a couple (Youngevity and Zeek Rewards) and I have made money. Youngevity has great products like the company Zinja. I am presently making 1000+ a month with Zeek Rewards in 160 days. If I would have gotten involved with Zeek a year ago when I first heard about it I would be making over 10,000 a month now. I say that to say this. MLM's are no different than the companies we all work for. They are pyramids. Think about it and draw it out. President has people under him and they have people under them. Biggest difference in MLM'S is the fact that the lower person can actually make a lot more money than the guy above him.
Now back to making money.....I have recently been told about and joined a company that is launching Sept. 15th that will be bigger than Zeek Rewards. I'm not making same mistake and not joining. It's called Bidxcel. If you guys want more info or a phone number for the conference calls they are doing (doing 3 a day it's growing so fast) email me at [email protected]

I am sure that you are questioning the long term use of the zija weight management system since a top leader here in Kentucky has been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer after losing over 100 pounds on the product. She has no family history of this deadly disease and is entirely too young. Perhaps long term use could be fatal…what if? I am afraid – what if?

Honestly, I was very skeptical to try Zija. I didn't want to waste money on a product that doesn't' do what it claims and I definitely didn't want to waste money on something that was just a scam. I started to look around online for anything I could find on it and found a lot of threads like this only
talking about how much of a scam it is. Consequently I decided not to purchase the product. At this time several of my coworkers had began to use it and I watched them feel better and lose weight. Losing weight has always been a challenge for me, even with diet and going to the gym on a regular basis. My coworkers kept telling me that I need to give Zija a try.
No, they did not recommend I try it just because they sell it. How do i know? Because they aren't distributors of Zija. I was referred to their seller and I received a weeks worth of samples for the smartmix, the xm3 mix, the tea, and the xam pills. Since I was given these samples for free I figured why not. I was instructed to drink the mix in the morning after my daily run and then eat 30 min after. The pill I was told to take midmorning between 10 am and 2 pm. And if I wanted the tea every 3-5 days or so. I started with the smartmix the first half of the week and then switched to the xm3 the second half so I could try the difference and see what I liked better, if at all. I was pleasantly surprised to find how much better I feel! I preferred the xm3 just because of the extra energy boost but I loved the smartmix as well. Just to see if it was really the Zija i went 2 weeks without taking it. It was definitely the Zija. I have more energy and just all around feel better. I'm losing weight which I contribute to a better metabolism and more energy to push myself while working out.
No one is saying you can just take Zija and lose weight. Like anything, you have to WORK for it. I wish I hadn't of taken these threads to heart when I first began looking at taking Zija. I could have started feeling this good way before now!! Everyone can call it a scam but us who take it know the truth. And let me entertain the thought that it is a scam, I still feel better both physically and mentally and that alone is worth it to me.
Bottom line is it is a personal choice. I just wouldn't be so quick to put it down until you've tried it.

Let me repeat, since apparently you are somewhat illiterate:
"I'd like to see a link to an actual clinical research study that proves Zija weight loss products are both safe AND effective."
Let me break that sentence down for you.
A link (this means a URL for a website)
Clinical research study (as in a randomized, double blind, and placebo-controlled, peer-reviewed protocol)
Zija weight loss products (exactly what I said)
Safe & effective (Is it safe? Is there PROOF it promotes weight loss?)
Now, I already know you won't provide a link, because you can't. There has been no such study. All you have are anecdotes from your hairdresser's brother's cousin's girlfriend. But I'll give you a link to the Johns Hopkins paper on Moringa oleifera -
http://moringamalunggay.com/John_Hopkins.pdf
In his paper, Dr. Fahey never mentions weight loss, nor is it listed as a benefit. He does, however, say this:
"As with many reports of the nutritional or medicinal value of a natural product, there are an alarming number of purveyors of “healthful” food who are now promoting M. oleifera as a panacea. While much of this recent enthusiasm indeed appears to be justified, it is critical to separate rigorous scientific evidence from anecdote. Those who charge a premium for products containing Moringa must be held to a high standard."

By the way, intelligent people don't end statements with 'LOL.'

My next door neighbor is a zija triple diamond. He lives with his mom in her house she bought and paid for. he is the biggest joke there ever was. He is considered the most inspirational leader but his house is a POS and so is he.

Pardon me...what is POS?.....He lives with mom....must be single......Just because he holds the rank of triple diamond does note guarantee he is paid at that level.

So... was it confirmed that a Zija Branded Product caused this colon cancer? If so, which product was it? Who is this leader in Kentucky you speak of? So now highly absorbable nutritients cause cancer of the colon. No, sorry. Moringa has been used for thousands of years. It's totally safe. Come again.

I had used this product for over 6 months to no avail. Other then the the props by the manufacter and distributers I found no credible scientific proof of its claims. It didnt work for me. It seems nothing more then a vehicle to sell memberships and fill someones pockets at someone elses expence.

Yes the Biggest Loser showed their participants using Zija, but at the same time they had a personal Trainer, and a Nutritionists. They had a proper diet, and exercise everyday 90% diet 10% workout is the key to being fit. You don't need a Weight loss expert to explain it specially one who can not type.

I have been taking the Zija packets for more than eight months now. They are my "daily vitamin". I had been taking an expensive whole foods one anyway so the Zija didn't cost a lot more (although it is expensive). I didn't take it for weight loss, but I have lost 11 lbs. without trying (and, I am ashamed to admit, without exercise). Three more things have changed. My blood sugar is now in the 80's when it has always been in the 90's and close to 100. Also, I fell in 2008 and now have arthritis in my hip and foot. It would ache at night and wake me up. I took NSAIDS which caused painful ulcers so I quit taking them. I have noticed that my leg no longer aches, and I sleep through the night now. Oh, and my allergies have almost disappeared. It's simple. If you think Zija is a scam or is too expensive, don't buy it. I, for one, am happy with the results I am seeing.
