Zija is a Moringa Leaf drink. Moringa Zinga is a Moringa Leaf capsule. This article will help you decide which one is best for you.

Powdered moringa tree leaf is the world's greatest unknown supplement. In short it gives energy, endurance, and mental clarity but it has many, many other benefits.

Moringa leaf is totally safe as it's used by the World Health Organization to treat malnourished babies. Within a month after daily usage of moringa, infants with distended bellies and orange hair return to normal. If it's safe for use in babies it's certainly going to be safe for adults. Moringa leaf is used as a spice in cooking and also as a tea. Can't get any safer than that!

The Moringa drink called Zija contains all the parts of the Moringa tree and other ingredients such as chlorophyll. It's a "proprietary" formula, which means that their recipe is their own, much like coca-cola. So it's hard to know what's exactly in it to compare with other moringa leaf products. They spent a lot of money in its formulation and they make good arguments why you should buy it. Ultimately, you make the decision. Either you feel better using a product or you don't.

You won't need any other vitamin or mineral supplements beyond the Zija drink. It is a totally natural source of over 90 vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients including multiple antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Drink one 5.5 oz. can per day and receive the following benefits:

Antioxidants

Nourishes Body's Immune System

Promotes Healthy Circulatory System

Anti-Inflammatory

Provides a Sense of Well-Being

Supports Normal Blood Glucose Levels

Promotes Healthy Digestion

Increases Energy

Enhances Skin Health

Promotes Normal Liver and Kidney Function

Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Promotes Normal Serum Cholesterol

Promotes Healthy Cell Structure

Nourishes the Eyes and Brain

Triggers Metabolism with Bioavailable Ingredients

Promotes Body's Natural Defenses

Zija is the first company to include the Moringa leaf in a health drink. A few more will follow. But only the small businessman, seeking to improve the health of people around the world, will be selling Moringa in its pure, powdered, encapsulated form.

If you want an apple do you settle for fruit salad? If you want the incredible benefits of the potent moringa leaf do you settle for a "formula" that contains just a bit of leaf?

Moringa Zinga, the capsule form of powdered moringa leaf, is an excellent source of nutrition and is a natural energy booster. This energy boost is not based on sugar so it is sustained. People also report their immune system strengthened, skin condition restored, blood pressure controlled, headaches and migraines handled, diabetes sugar level managed, inflammations and arthritis pains reduced, tumors restricted and ulcers healed.

Moringa Zinga capsules are 100% all natural, organic, and the capsules themselves are all vegetarian. The capsules are so safe that athletes and entertainment performers take as many as 10-20 capsules for performance enhancing reasons even though 1-4 capsules are the recommended daily dosage.

Whether you chose Zija or Moringa Zinga you've made a great decision for the quality of your life. Either way the Moringa tree leaf will bring you amazing results!

Gemstones And Our Affair With Them

(category: Beauty, Word count: 515)

Gemstones are precious or semiprecious stones that are used in jewelry for adorning the body. They are highly valuable and beautiful crystalline rocks or minerals that are cut and polished for use in jewelry. They are valuable because of their beauty, rarity, and durability and are long lasting and can be passed on as heirlooms.

The types of gemstones available are amazing. There are several that are widely used in jewelry, such as a diamond, garnet, beryl, emerald, sapphire, quartz, amethyst, aquamarine, citrine, opal, peridot, ruby, spinal, tourmaline, topaz etc. These are beautifully colored and are extremely attractive.

The shape of a gemstone is determined by the natural crystal structure and how it is developed. To be able to mount them into the precious metals such as Gold, silver etc., gem cutters shape them into various shapes, ensuring they reflect light and this adds brilliance to the cut and polished stone, making it highly attractive and valuable. Gem cutters take a scientific approach to cutting a gem stone, depending on the original shape of a gemstone, going by the refractive index of each gemstone, to understand how light rays bend as they pass through the stone.

In ancient times, gemstones used to be identified only by color, but now the chemical properties of the gemstone are taken into consideration. The chemical formula, specific gravity, hardness, and refractive index are looked at for identification. For example, the green color of an emerald is caused by small amounts of chromium and vanadium. The darker the green color of the emerald, the rarer it is, and the more expensive.

Gemstones are considered as birthstones too and this superstition has its origin to ancient times. There are many that follow and strongly believe the superstition of wearing the gemstone that is attributed to be their birthstone. It is their strong belief that not all gemstones are suitable to every human. Just as all types of water is not drunk and all types of air is not inhaled, similarly all types of gemstones are not considered to be good. The nine gemstones, the ruby, pearl, emerald, yellow sapphire, coral, blue sapphire, diamond, cat's eye, and hessonite are said to provide enlightenment and power.

A main factor for determining the value of the gemstones is water. Water is used to refer to the color and transparency of a gemstone. The value of a gemstone by and large is determined by the color, clarity of a stone, cut, and carat weight. These are called the 4 Cs. Apart from this, the rarity of a gemstone is taken into consideration too.

Gemstones are now set in various metals and sold as ornaments to adorn different parts of our body, like bracelets or bangles for the wrists, necklaces or chokes for the neck, rings for the fingers, and so on. There are watches available for both men and women, that are studded with gems and which cost an arm and leg. The cost is no deterrent when the look is aesthetically pleasing and exotic.

Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese Hair Straightening is a chemical process that can turn the curliest straight. Typically women who love the straight look, will love Japanese Hair Straightening.

This process was first created for Japanese women as a smoothing and conditioning treatment that promotes a permanent altering of the hair structure. The hair's cyctine protein bonds are loosened and reshaped through the straightening of hair cells.

Taking six hours or longer, the process involves multiple steps depending on the texture and length of your hair.

To protect your hair from the chemicals and heat, a pre-conditioner is applied first, followed by a applying a hair relaxer with heat applications and a periodic flat ironing.

With the exception of extremely brittle hair, the treatment works on just about any hair type. Thermal reconditioning could be for you, if you want to have permanently straight hair.

As a word of caution, your straight hair will last till it grows out. If you want to keep your hair smooth, you'll have to make a trip to the salon for root straightening touch-ups to prevent your roots from growing in kinky.

Most experts claim the treatment is not harmful, but any process that alters hair structure could be damaging. Especially during touch-up time because that's when your more likely to be exposed to the most chemicals. My final tip is to ensure your hairdresser and your salon have lots of experience.

Is Lasik in your future?

Millions of Americans turn to Lasik Surgery when their vision is less than perfect and they're tired of being tied down to wearing glasses or contacts. What part of the eye is it that may be causing all your vision trouble? Your cornea! When the shape of your cornea is irregular, the image on your retina is blurry and out-of-focus. The cornea is a part of your eye that works to focus light and projects an image on the retina. This focusing of light is called refraction. The 3 main types of refractive errors are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. If you are nearsighted, you have trouble seeing distant objects. If you are farsighted, you have trouble seeing things close up.

Hair Color Trends The New You

(category: Beauty, Word count: 646)

Current hair color trends are defined within the move towards relaxed glamour. Healthy, shiny hair, with lots of movement, yet still well groomed. Color is defined - it's either pastel blondes, in clean, icy tones. Or cool browns, or brilliant reds. The move has definitely been away from red browns, although if that's a personal choice, or suits your skin tone best, don't be a slave to fashion!

Here are some ideas to incorporate the latest hair color trends into your style:

Double sided coloring - underneath, choose a darker color like chocolate, and over the top, and for most of the hair, choose lighter shades like copper and bronze. The darker color will frame your face, and if you go for any flicks or curls when styling, you'll see it contrasted against the lighter colors. But the main colors when hair is straightened will be the lighter ones. It's great for variety.

Try color combinations like coffee, honeycomb and golden syrup for a more subtle, layered effect.

For brunettes who like their chocolate browns, try a few golden highlights to break up the block of chocolate, unless your face and skin color can handle the density of such a rich dark color. It really helps define your hair style, and is much easier to wear.

If you like very dark colors, try a brown black instead of a straight black. Or get your hairdresser to mix in some blue black into the brown black to give it more intensity, but without the harshness of a solid black that is not flattering to all skin tones. Also, try mixing in some caramel and pink-red foils with a violet brown black base. If they're used creatively, and with restraint, you can keep the overall look very dark and mysterious, with a few hints of color showing.

For blondes, try mixing golden blonde with a very light ash. Or for a more subtle but contrasting look, have the ends of a bob colored a pale pastel coral.

If you want to try platinum shades, instead of going for a harsher white white, try a softer platinum white tinted slightly with pink.

For a pretty natural blonde look, try splicing a few clove and light ash foils through a pale, golden base shade.

Redheads: Go for a rich, fiery copper with a darker brown underneath, like clove. This works well on long hair and mid length hair.

For another red combination, try cayenne, nutmeg and paprika.

For really vibrant colors mixed with a darker base, away from the coppers, try a pink red combination of cassis and raspberry coulis.

For something a little more outrageous and individual, go for a brightly colored fringe, say in pink, and a few purple ends.

If you want something quite striking, but not so colorful, just go for a lighter than usual highlight. As long as it's tastefully done, it'll look great. Don't try this at home!!!

When choosing colors, be aware of whether it's a warm shade or a cool shade. And keep in mind how much of each color is going to be on your hair. Which shade, or tone, do you want the dominant one to be? Do you want a subtle effect, or a more striking one? Unless the contrasting color is going to be in small amounts, keep warm tones together, and cool tones together, irrespective of whether they are blond, brown, black or red. For example, chocolate brown highlights look good with warm vanilla, even though the colors themselves are quite distinct.

You can use different tones together. But it depends on both your skin tone, the way the colors are applied, and how much of each are used. If you're going for this approach, think of the contrasting tone as a painter would, and be judicious about it's placing.

Help I Ve Got White Spots

(category: Beauty, Word count: 471)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Fungal infections of the human body are very common, and are often quite bothersome. One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove.

How do I get it?

Pityrosporum orbiculare, the yeast that causes tinea versicolor, is present in small numbers on normal skin; regular washing rids the skin of dead skin cells as well as excess yeast. But it can grow in great amounts - during the summer months when humidity sky-rockets or when a person's immune system is weakened - and interfere with the normal pigmentation of the skin; resulting in unsightly spots in both light and dark colors.

Teens and young adults, regardless of skin color, are the usual victims of tinea versicolor, and those with oily skin may be more prone to it than those with dry skin. In tropical countries, where humidity and temperature are persistently elevated, people of all ages can suffer from these spots all throughout the year.

What are the symptoms?

Flat spots that range in color from white to pink to tan and brown appear over the upper arms, chest, back, neck and face. They vary greatly in size, from as small as four to five millimeters in diameter to large areas of confluence. Scaling may not be readily evident, but scales may easily be obtained by scraping the affected areas. A mild itch may be present, particularly if a person is sweating or feels hot. When the spots involve the neck or face, it can be very disconcerting.

What can I do about it?

If you think you have white spots or any discolorations of the skin, see a dermatologist. The appearance of the skin is often all that is required to clinch a diagnosis, but microscopic examination of the fine scales can be performed if necessary. When viewed under a special light or chemical preparation, the presence of the yeast can be confirmed.

How it is treated?

Tinea versicolor responds to either topical or oral forms of treatment. Topical antifungal creams, ointments, or shampoos - containing selenium sulfide, keteconazole, zinc-pyrithrone, imidazole, or other medications - applied directly to affected areas once or twice daily have proven effective. Sulfur soap and salicyclic acid have also been used to rid skin of the yeast. Oral antifungals have been used to treat tinea versicolor resistant to topical applications. In both topical and oral forms of treatment, however, restoration of skin color should be expected several months after yeast has been destroyed. Consult your dermatologist before using any of these medications.

Recurrence is common and medicated cleansers may be needed to prevent relapses. Ask your dermatologist about them. To discourage overgrowth of fungus, keep skin dry and wear thin, loose clothing.

How To Find And Buy Affordable Beauty Products

(category: Beauty, Word count: 692)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Are you in need of beauty products? If you are interested in improving your appearance, beauty wise, you may be. If really haven't placed much of a focus on your appearance, beauty wise, in the past, you may be a little bit surprised when you start shopping for beauty product and supplies. Unfortunately, that surprise will not always be a good one. You will likely find that many, in fact a large number of, beauty products are expensive. In fact, some may be so expensive that you may just want to turn around and walkout of the store and forever give up your quest to look "beautiful," but you don't have to. There are a number of different ways that you can go about finding affordable beauty products.

One of the easiest ways to find affordable beauty products is by visiting a retail store, like a beauty supply store, a fashion store, or a department store. What you will want to do is visit the store's clearance or markdown sections. Most retailers, including beauty supply stores, have a clearance section that contains marked down beauty products. Most of the time, there is nothing wrong the products that are being discounted. When it comes to storefront stores, many retailers are limited on space; therefore, they regularly try to move out older products to make room for new ones. This common retail practice may be able to save you a considerable amount of money on beauty products.

In addition to having a clearance section or a markdown section, many retailers, including beauty supply stores, also regularly have sales. In fact, most retailers have large storewide sales once a week or so. If you are able to find a good store sale on beauty products, you may be able to save yourself a decent amount of money. It is common to find retailers that give you a percentage discount off of your order or a certain item. You may also see offers that are like buy one get one free or buy one get one half off. You should always try to check your local stores to see if they are having any sales and also check your newspapers for store sale fliers or inserts.

Although shopping at a local beauty supply store or another retailer is nice, you may also want to think about buying beauty products online. What is nice about buying beauty products online is that you often have hundreds of retailers to choose from. That actually translates into an unlimited number of beauty products for sale. Also, with the internet, you can easily compare prices and products, making it easier to find affordably priced beauty products. You will also be able to find beauty products for sale on online auction websites. Of course, you can make your purchases from there, if you want, but you need to review the person who you will be doing business with, like their feedback. Buying health and beauty products from someone who you don't know is risky, as you can never be too sure about contaminations and such.

In addition to using the internet to find beauty products for sale online, you may also want to use the internet to find moneysaving coupons. It is common to find money saving coupons for certain products or certain retail sores. If you have a nearby beauty supply store and that store has an online website, you may want to see if they have any coupons for you to print off. You will also want to check the online websites of your favorite product manufacturers for the same. It may also be good idea to pick a copy of your local Sunday paper, as many Sunday papers are full of coupons, some of which may be for beauty products, like makeup, skincare products, and hair care products.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that you can go about finding and buying affordably priced beauty products. Looking great or "beautiful," may be important to you, but it isn't something that should leave you broke.

Handbags Keeping Up With The Joneses

What is it about handbags that drive the girls bonkers? It's handbags and shoes- an awesome combination that makes significant others jealous everywhere.

And no, it's never adequate only to possess one in your stash, but to have an entire years worth of handbags and fashion accouterments so that you can match it with whatever you're wearing that day (or whatever mood you're in).

There is something very sultry and raw about handbags- they exude femineity. It's probably the defining accessory for women because it goes beyond footwear, or other clothing we put on our physical bodies- handbags are what make women standout from a purely fashion point of view.

Handbags are not merely eye candy, in fact, they provide various different uses as well. There are all purpose handbags that can carry your daily essentials such as cell phones, makeup, wallet, and anything else you'd like to have around with you.

There are particular handbags that people use to carry their canine fellows as well. Women rarely use one style of handbag. They usually have a rack full of different bags for different occasions.

There are all sorts of styles and fashions of handbags that will suit the taste of any discerning woman in the whole world. From well-known handbags such as coach, to lesser known producers, there are wide product lines as diverse and unique as the stars in the sky.

If you think that's still not impressive, there is a constant evolution of handbags on a annual basis, whereby the hottest new designers come out with a refreshing approach while the veteran designers produce instant classics adored by all.

Some groups prefer the name brands exclusively, while others go for lower tier handbags and purses, while yet others may consider a mix or even opt for replicas. Replicas usually are inferior in quality and certainly not a good decision in most cases.
