Zija XM3 Capsules Review - Does This Dietary Supplement Work? Are cost and inconsistent results deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.5 / 5.0

Zija-XMAM-Capsules-product-imageZija XMAM Capsules have popped up on our radar lately, so we decided to do a careful review of the product, examining the ingredients, the clinical research, whether or not it has side effects, and the quality of Zija’s customer service. Then we looked into customer reviews to try and find out what people thought about the product and condensed all that info right here for you. We hope it helps your make an informed decision!

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Zija XM3 Capsules with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

First of all, Zija XMAM is a dietary supplement containing Moringa, Vitamin B6, Minerals, Cocoa, natural Caffeine and Phenylethylamine, and the Zija Proprietary Mix [the mix contains Green Coffee Bean (Coffea Arabica), Rhodiola Rosea, Citrus Aurantium, Moringa Mix (Leaf Powder, Seed Cake, Fruit Powder, Fruit Juice), Piperine, and Natural Caffeine]. Zijamoringa.com claims that use of the XMAM capsules will curb appetite, leading to weight loss. Other parts of the formula are geared more toward energy and fat burning.
This product, which is sold by Zija Moringa, is available through independent dealers. It doesn’t appear to be available through the main Zija website, and it looks like Zija uses a pyramid scheme to distribute its products. We also can’t find a date for the founding of Zija, even though they claim to have done “decades of research” on Moringa itself. We appreciate the natural ingredients found in the Zija XMAM capsules, and Zija has a solid BBB rating, but read on…

Price–“Too High?”

The first issue we had with Almased is cost. “Following the capsule regiment would mean 1-2 pills per day,” said our research editor. “You may see some results while taking the product, since there are a few clinically studied ingredients in the blend. But 30 capsules costs around $60, so you have to be willing to put that kind of money down on a supplement that can’t be proven.” The XMAM Capsules are essentially $2 apiece.
“I tried 30 days worth and it was a waste of money. Did not lose one pound. Worthless,” said one user.
“Not worth the money,” said another.

Does it work?–Another Concern

It turns out the promised results of using Zija XMAM aren’t exactly reliable. In fact, many customers reported a complete lack of results. “It doesn’t work,” said one customer online.
“I tried this on a recommendation and it didn’t do anything,” said another. In reading through forums, many customers agree. While some people think Moringa-based supplements are the greatest thing since sliced bread, many other people don’t agree.
Over the course of reviewing hundreds of products, we’ve realized that even a couple of slight drawbacks can hamper the long-term success of a product. The cost associated with these capsules from Zija is pretty high for what you get, and a user may not be able to sustain that cost. Another cost-related issue is that when you stop taking the product, your weight may return. “Once you stop taking the supplement, you will gain back all the weight you lost, plus 10 or more pounds to go with it,” said one user. “I am speaking first hand, as I was a Zija user this time last year.”
If you do decide to take this product, be sure to include healthy eating and exercise. That way you can sustain your weight loss when you want to stop paying for the pill.

The Science–Legit?

Zijamoringa.com refers to “decades of studies” several times when it discusses Moringa. At no point do the providers of Zija XMAM take the time to explain the nature of these studies. Fortunately for Zija, we were able to find several articles on http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ that point to the health benefits of Moringa; however, we are unable to determine how much of the herb is actually present in Zija XMAM capsules.
As far as the other ingredients are concerned, we were surprised to find that not all of them had to do with weight loss–some, like cocoa, have completely irrelevant benefits while other ingredients like caffeine are a dime a dozen. Furthermore, the proprietary Moringa blend contains citrus aurantium, an ephedrine replacement that also may cause heart trouble.

The Bottom Line–Does Zija XMAM Work?

Zija XMAM seemed like a promising product given its attention to new research and incorporation of Moringa, a genuinely interesting herb. After looking over all the information, however, the lack of clinical data, wide general statements on the website, and high cost have steered us clear of a recommendation.
If you want to lose weight, we recommend finding a product that won’t break the bank or give you unverified claims about its medical properties.
One of the best supplements we’ve found in 2015 is called Leptigen. It blends four ingredients in a proprietary mix, and these ingredients have been shown in published research to boost metabolism and burn fat. People all over the internet are seeing great results, and bad side effects don’t seem to be an issue.
There’s even a special trial offer for the time being, and that’s always a good sign when you are trying out supplements.

Zija XM3 Capsules are one of the weight loss management product made by Zija International. Though the company has a professional website for all of their products, little information is available about the XM3 capsules themselves. Using the information presented, we will take a closer look at the product to determine if it is a viable solution for those who want to lose weight.

List of Ingredients

Though an actual supplement nutritional label is not provided on the official website, they do list the following ingredients as part of their proprietary blend: "Moringa, Vitamin B6, Minerals, Cocoa, natural Caffeine and Phenylethylamine to name a few..."

Product Features

Moringa is a plant full of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, grown in an effort to fight against malnutrition and poverty. Vitamin B6 is. Minerals are rather vague, as we don't know which ones are in the capsule. Minerals are essential to overall health, but primarily don't have anything to do with weight loss. Cocoa is likely in the formula because of the "love drug" chemical that induces a feeling of general well-being to elevate mood. Caffeine is included to boost energy, and potentially increase fat burning power. Phenylethylamine is another part of what is thought to cause chocolate to induce "feel good" endorphins, and acts similar to amphetamines.

  • This product contains ingredients we know are good for you, such as vitamin B6.


  • We cannot see how much of the ingredients are in the formula because of the proprietary blend.
  • The website only names a few of the ingredients in the formula, and does not provide a supplement label.
  • It does not appear the product can be purchased from the manufacturer's website; but rather must be purchased through a direct sales consultant.
  • There is no pricing information provided.
  • We cannot tell how long a bottle will last, as we do not know the serving amount, or how many capsules are in each bottle.
  • There is no evidence of a money back guarantee.


Due to the severe lack of information about this product, we recommend you look for another supplement that contains proven fat burners and appetite suppressants. This company seems more concerned with presenting a business opportunity than selling their product to consumers. Without a full list of ingredients, we cannot tell if there are any fat burners or appetite suppressants in the formula. Hiding in a proprietary blend means there may not be enough of the ingredients to be effective. We also were not able to tell if the bottle would last a week, or a month, and cannot judge the affordability because there is no pricing information available. Why trust a supplement or a company that cannot provide information information to consumers to make an educated purchase decision. Combine the supplement of your choice with a balanced, reduced calorie diet with increased water intake and regular exercise routine for best results.

    I tried 30 days worth and it was a waste of money. Did not lose one pound. Worthless.



    Did you workout with it? Did you change you eating habits?

    I have been using Zija Supermix, Detox tea and Xm Burn $225./month for the past 7 months. I have cancelled my order. I am 5’6″ 165 pounds. I have not lost a single pound. I barely have the energy to keep up in cycling class and I am bedridden for two days if I go to the gym. I have no known medical problems and I am 29 years old. I kept waiting to see results and I am done waiting. I eat low sugar, low carb high protein meals and about 1200-1400 calories a day. This is not helping one iota and I still have awful menstual cramps and migraines.



    Amanda, try eliminating animal products for a month or so. My daughter started getting migraines when she was eight. By the time she was twelve she was having them 2-3 a week and miserable. I went vegan for a month with her and she didn’t have another migraine until she had pizza. We narrowed it down over time to dairy. She now eat everything except dairy. Cheese was so bad for her!

    My husband has been using the weight loss system for the last year. He is down 115 lbs, blood sugar has stabilized (was borderline diabetic) and blood pressure stabilized. I also know of many, many others who have had life changing results from the simple pure nutrition of Moringa. Every person’s “personal recipe” is so very different, get back with the person who introduced you, give them a chance to help you!! Im glad we did!!

    Lost 20lbs in a month, aches and pains from years of sports injuries are gone, feeling good and looking good.

    I have several relatives who have taken it and lost quite a bit of weight. Because it has caffeine, it is not for everybody, and if you have high BP, I would not take it. I tried one cap and felt wired all day, so I do not think it is for me



    What this mean BP

    blood pressure

    Natural caffeine is recognized by the body and therefore can be “processed” by the body. As opposed to the synthetic caffeines of energy drinks from gas stations. There are other options for people with high blood pressure, again, get back with the person who introduced you…let them help you! If you don’t have anyone to contact, I would be more than happy to try and help you :-).

    Does this actually aid in weight loss? I placed my order over a month and a half ago and still have not received it, has this happened to any one else?


  • 7

    I hope you plan on taking Zija for the duration of life. Once you stop taking the supplement, you will gain back all the wait you loss, plus 10 or more pounds to go with it! I am speaking first hand, as I was a Zija user this time last year. I took the supplement for three months and lost 20 pounds. I stopped taking Zija and the pounds came flooding back on. I went from a 20 pound weight loss to a 30 pound weight gain. I work and watch my eating most everyday, so I think the supplement really messes with your metabolism. I am starting to wonder if my metabolism will ever get back to normal! Consumers really need to know the effects of Zija after they stopp taking it. Unless money isn’t an option, then continue taking it forever and you may be fine.

    Zija is a joke. The return policy and customer service is the worst. The product literally made several friends and famiuly sick. Don’t waste your time or money on this.



    You must use this product properly. It does contain natural caffeine . It detoxes the impurities in your body. When I first began taking it the rush was very noticable. After taking it for a few days and realizing how great I felt and the extra energy was welcomed. Best choice I ever made.



    those who were sick on it were going through a detox, I always suggest new customers start with 1/2 regular smartmix in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. Once they have detox I start them on the XM3 or any of the other products, depending on the goals.

    I have lost 40 pounds on Zija’s weight management system since June 2011. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 8 and have kept it off. It’s easy, and I have done nothing besides this to lose the weight. Right I have more energy than I have ever had, and my doctor has removed me from taking blood pressure meds, adhd meds & my thyroid meds have been reduced by half. The products speak for themselves and work! There are 30 caps in each package of xmam(xm3), there is a 30 day money back guarantee and the ingredients are listed on the website. If you are on stimulant drugs, bp meds or mao inhibitors, there are products you can’t take, but they do have products you CAN take. Anyone can take the SMart Mix, and there is a PM capsule that reduces stress, stops production of cortisol to the belly. I absolutely would recommend this product line to anyone who wants to lose weight naturally and be healthier than they’ve ever been!

    Zija is pretty awesome! I’ve used it for a month now and while I haven’t lost TONS of weight, it has helped keep me in check with my eating. However, this being said, this isn’t a miracle pill, you still have to do the work!
