Figurehead. Innovator. Entrepreneur. Icon.
The Zija story begins with one man viewing a documentary about a tree grown in faraway lands. His interest piqued as he observed people being sustained by consuming small amounts of this nutrient-rich botanical, called Moringa oleifera. This man is Ken Brailsford, a pioneer in the nutritional supplement industry, the “Father of Herbal Encapsulation,” and the Founder of Zija International.
Long before Zija International became a household name, Ken had already successfully started and run two multi-million dollar health and nutrition product network marketing companies. Although he was retired when he first learned of Moringa, Ken felt inspired by its potential to change the world. He came out of retirement and began learning as much as he could from the worlds best scientists, biochemists, botanists, pharmacologists and product formulators.
Ken also assembled an impressive executive team to help spread the Zija message and empower our Independent Distributors in every way possible. He chose Ryan Palmer to lead the company, with the goal of rapid and sustainable growth at the top of both of their minds.
