I initially discovered Zija while searching for a remedy to the nightly menopausal symptoms I experienced follow my hysterectomy. Of course there were the dreaded night-sweats, sleeplessness, followed by aching joints and stiffness. Fortunately I was attending a weekly networking group and one of the ladies there introduced her product...Zija. I decided to try one of her sample packs. After just THREE DAYS of using that SmartMix, I could feel the change. I enjoyed a restful sleep; woke up and got out of bed with ease and noticed much more flexibility in my joints. Three MONTHS later I am happy to report that I have no need for my annual supply of allergy medicine (yay!!!), I am enjoying increased energy and an over healthy feeling. I am hooked--Zija is part of my daily regiment!!! And, my body has become accustom to getting the nutrition it needs from my daily pack of SmartMix and/or XM plus.
