Foundational Wellness


It’s no secret that we are crazy about NingXia Red. Use this incredible supplement for 30 consecutive days and you’ll see why! Honestly, we're better people when we drink it. Sound a little far-fetched? Think about it. Do cars run better when fueled by the right gas? Yep. Yet we often expect our bodies to run on second-rate, processed, non-fuel. We get worn out, our digestive systems get tired, our cells get dirty, and we need something we can assimilate quickly and easily to go to work. NingXia gives our bodies the boost that we need!

WHAT IS NINGXIA RED? Ok so we know all the amazing benefits of this superfood, but what exactly is it?

Ningxia Red is a powerful antioxidant supplement drink made from wolfberry puree, blueberry, plum, cherry, aronia, and pomegranate juices, grape seed extract, Yuzu, Tangerine, Lemon and Orange essential oils, stevia and pure vanilla extract for flavor. The essential oils mixed in Ningxia Red and other Young Living supplements act as catalysts to help deliver nutrients through the cell membranes while assisting in the removal of cellular wastes.

Besides its great taste, NingXia Red has some amazing health benefits!  It is the highest known protection against the dangerous superoxide free radicals, as documented in the S-ORAC test conducted by Brunswick Laboratories. 

One ounce of Ningxia Red has the antioxidant power of:

  • 4 Pounds Carrots
  • 2 Quarts Carrot Juice
  • 8 Oranges
  • 1 Pint Orange Juice
  • 2 Pounds Beets
  • 2 Cups Beet Juice
  • 3 Cups Raspberries
  • 2 Cups Blueberries
  • … combined!

Let’s talk antioxidants. That word gets thrown around a lot as we discuss wellness, but what does it really mean? Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals.

Antioxidants can be categorized as either water- or fat-soluble. Water-soluble perform their actions in the fluid inside and outside cells, while fat-soluble protect the cell membranes. In order to prevent formation of free radicals, neutralize free radicals that have already formed, and repair damage done by free radicals, you need both water- and fat-soluble antioxidants. The fruits in NingXia Red provide water-soluble antioxidants, while the essential oils provide the fat-soluble antioxidants.

NingXia Red is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, it has 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E. It is an excellent whole-food source of nutrients that gives energy and strength to the body without harmful stimulates. It also has an amazing low glycemic index of 11 that does not spike blood sugar levels. 

PRODUCT & EMOTIONS Supporting our physical health is critical when it comes to emotional health - the two are so interconnected! Both NingXia Red and NingXia Wolfberries are full of antioxidants which are essential when we are processing stress or trauma, and they are particularly helpful when feeling Overwhelm, Grief or Fear. 

Relieving the physical oxidative stress on the body facilitates emotional healing. Further, both are soothing and can bring a sense of security in the morning when it's hard to get up and face the day. Antioxidants really help promote the movement of grief through the body! To use the NingXia Wolfberries, simply place them in a mug with some of your favorite herbal tea, add hot water and steep.

NINGXIA RED FAQ: Q: When can children begin drinking NingXia Red? This is the decision of you as the informed parent or caregiver. I choose to give it to my children at the point that I am giving them other plant-based foods. It is usually best to begin with 1 oz. and then work up to 2-4oz if needed. My children 2+ all drink 2 ounces per day (they'd drink a whole bottle if I let them!).

Q: Can I use NingXia Red if I have diabetes? A: You must answer that question based on your body’s response to the product. Drink NingXia, wait 15 minutes, and then check your blood sugar. Add healthy fats and proteins whenever taking in sugars, even those naturally occurring in fruits. It does fall well within recommended guidelines for carb and sugar intake for those with diabetes.

Q: Can I use NingXia Red if I need to avoid nightshades? A: There is evidence to suggest that some nightshades can exaggerate inflammation in the body and should be avoided by those with autoimmune diseases. The NingXia wolfberry contains a balance between the polysaccharides and solanine that suggest that balance may be in place with this particular fruit. 

Q: Can I use NingXia Red if I’m on blood thinning medications? A: Make sure that you research  your specific medications and know your body. There have been people who have reported a thinning of blood with regular usage of the wolfberry. If on medications, be very sure that you consistently use your NingXia daily and at the same amount. This way, your doctor can help you adjust your dosage to work well with your NingXia intake.
