An excerpt from Young Living...
What is NingXia?
NingXia Red is Young Livings signature drink that combines the extraordinary wolfberry superfruit with a pure Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils, along with blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate and plum juices to deliver a whole-body nutrient infusion.
NingXia Red contains a special young living exclusive essential oil blend of Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine. These oils were chosen specifically for their flavour and benefit profiles, these essential oils also contain d-limonene, a powerful naturally occurring component found in citrus oils.
Young Living purees the whole of the wolfberry fruit (the skin, juice, and pulp), and not just the juice of them, to ensure that we receive all of the goodness.
How did Young Living discover NingXia Red?
When Gary Young visited the NingXia region of northern China over 2 decades ago, he was astounded that many of the indigenous inhabitants were centenarians. When he asked them what they attributed their longevity to, they informed him of the local wild grown wolfberries. With documented use dating back to the Ming Dynasty, wolfberries are one of the earliestknown superfruits utilised in ancient Chinese practices.
Gary Young took a sample of the wolfberries back to a lab in USA for testing and discovered that these particular wolfberries ranked as the world’s highest antioxidant food source on the ORAC scale. Not all wolfberries are so high in antioxidants. The Ningxia wolfberries’ unparalleled antioxidant profile can be attributed to the very nutrient-dense fertile soil that is fed by glacial run off in that area.
What’s so good about antioxidants? Antioxidants mop up free radicals that form in our body due to the perils of the modern lifestyle and which cause illness and disease. A nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant rich diet is the best way to safeguard against illness and disease (including heart disease and cancers).
How to consume?
Consuming NingXia Red daily will give you a boost of antioxidants and energy. Many people also tout improvements to their vision.
Although it is not necessary, it is best to consume cold so pop your bottles or sachets in the fridge, or the sachets can be popped into the freezer to consume as mini iceblocks.
Drink 60ml of NingXia daily. Here’s how:
neat; or dilute 50/50 in filtered water; or add into your smoothies (great with frozen berries!); or
• add into a mocktail. A favourite mocktail is to combine equal parts of Ningxia Red, sparking mineral water and kombucha and add 1 drop of YL Lime and Tangerine oils.
• as a gummie by combining with gelatin powder and heating in a saucepan (recipe for
Ningxia gummies is in the culinary section of this Essential Oils 101 Guide).
Supercharge your NingXia Red by adding a drop or two of your favourite YL culinary essential oil for an extra boost of flavour and nutrition! Try Lime, Tangerine, Peppermint, Lemon, Jade Lemon or Grapefruit. You might like to add 5 droppers (5ml) of Mineral Essence into your diluted Ningxia Red every morning and use the liquid to down your daily supplements such as Omegagize, Sulfurzyme, etc. It doesn’t really matter what time of the day you consume Ningixa Red but as it provides a lot of energy you might want to consume in the morning and perhaps not just before bed.
Who can consume Ningxia Red?
Just about everyone including children and pregnant women. Anecdotal evidence from midwives is that that women who consume Ningxia Red all throughout their pregnancy produced placentas that were healthier, rich red in colour because of their richness in red blood cells. A healthy placenta is a sign of a healthy baby. Is there anyone who should not consume Ningxia Red? Because Ningxia Red contains goji berries which are technically contraindicated are on the auto immune protocol, if you have a severe auto immune condition you might like to avoid Ningxia Red until your autoimmune condition goes into remission. If your auto immune symptoms are mild you might like to consume Ningxia especially if you feel better for consuming it. We recommend you experiment and do what feels right for you or speak to your holistic /integrative practitioner for advice.
