Blog 14 – Have You Heard of NingXia Red???

It occurred to me (when trying to explain what NingXia Red was to the sweet lady I just met at the Health Food Store – who seems just as excited about essential oils as me – is that possible?) 😉 that I have not yet “highlighted” one of the most amazing Young Living products/supplements offered. One that has so many health benefits in just 1 oz. serving, that it’s hard to fathom anything more naturally powerful!

Why is Young Livng’s NingXia Red Wolfberry Juice
Such a Powerful and Nutritionally Complete Supplement?

NingXia Red wolfberry juice incorporates the benefits of Goji berry, yuzu juice, aronia berry and therapeutic essential oils into a powerful antioxidant and nutritionally balanced drink. The NingXia and Chinese wolfberry have been used for thousands of years to support the immune system, promote longevity, and naturally detoxify the body.

In China, the wolfberry fruit is more often referred to as “goji” or lycii fruit. They are the bright red fruit of the Lycium barbarum plants. There are over eighty species of wolfberries worldwide that vary in antioxidant and nutritional value.

Lycium barbarum L is considered to have very high antioxidant properties in China, as it grows in a flood plain which is sourced from the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan Mountains are known to be one of the richest sources of minerals and organic nutrients found on earth.
