I am not a big supplement person. I am a believer in getting as much from nutritious whole foods as possible. The only supplements I take are a probiotic and Juice Plus (which is just fruits and vegetables – even though I eat a lot of those, I like the variety of colors of the rainbow).
As I have become involved in using my Young Living Essential Oils (which are also made from plants of this beautiful earth), I decided to try this NingXia Red antioxidant drink that everyone was raving about. About 3 or 4 weeks ago I added 1oz of NingXia Red to my daily routine and I can REALLY tell a difference in my energy levels. I get up super early, most days around 5am and two days a week – before that! Anyway, I was always tired mid-afternoon and ready for a nap. Incorporating this drink into my routine – I have really noticed a difference and wanted to share!
What is it? It is an antioxidant-rich juice made of wolfberries and other high antioxidant foods. Wolfberries antioxidant level is 2x that of acai berry and 3x the ORAC value of pomegranates. It contain 21 essential amino acids (one of the richest sources of plant protein) and is one of the richest sources of natural vitamin B1 (which is essential for energy production, carbohydrate metabolism and thyroid function). Certain vitamins and minerals often work well in pairs. The wolfberry contains many of the vitamin-mineral pairs that synergistically work well together. It is also rich in potassium (important for brain and nerve function), zinc (immune function), fiber (important for heart health).
Why is it called NingXia Red? These red wolfberries are found in a northern region of China, NingXia Hui.
Where can I buy it? You can buy it directly through Young Living. The cost is around $36/bottle for Wholesale customers and $47/bottle for Retail Customers. The bottle contains 25oz. I usually just do 1 oz per day.
Wholesale vs Retail Customer? Wholesale is like having a membership (think Sam’s or Costco). The only thing required is to buy a starter kit, no annual fee. Its all products to introduce you to their amazing products!
There is an Essential Oils Kit which I highly recommend! Or, there is a NingXia Red Kit which is found under “Other Premium Kits”. You can cancel anytime and there is no re-occurring fees or shipments unless you chose to place other orders.
