Two LaRue County educators have entered the business side of health drinks.
Chris Estes, a physical education and health teacher at LaRue County Middle School and triathlete, was looking for a healthful beverage to enhance his training. He heard about Zija, an all-natural drink high in several nutrients, and was impressed by its results.
Zija is made from roots, leaves and pods of the moringa plant, the 2008 National Institute of Health plant of the year. The plant has high amounts of calcium, vitamin C and potassium.
