Today we will look at Ningxia Wolfberry Puree and Blueberry Juice Concentrate.

What are the Benefits of Ningxia Wolfberry Puree?

  • Fantastic taste with no “junk-juice” (e.g., apple, white grape, pear, etc.) or added sugar.
  • Contains a great whole food source of protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins.
  • Contains therapeutic grade essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine and orange.
  • Contains natural antioxidants which protect the body against free radicals. It is free radicals that create cell oxidation; therefore Ningxia Red may help prevent against oxidative stress.
  • Highest levels of naturally occurring, age defying S-ORAC activity. Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function and supports healthy eye function.
  • May support natural detoxing process on a daily basis.
  • Natural form of energy without sugar, caffeine or other artificial stimulants.
  • Can be used to support animal wellness. Assists cats metabolize essential oils more efficiently.
  • The puree gives you all the benefits of the entire fruit, not just the juice.
  • Halal and Kosher certified in 750ml bottles

What are the Benefits of Blueberry Juice Concentrate?

  • Blueberries are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese and potassium.
  • Blueberry juice is high in vitamin C, an essential nutrient for overall health. Vitamin C aids in the production and repair of your body’s tissues, and it also helps to make collagen, a protein essential for healthy skin, cartilage, tendons ligaments and blood vessels. This vitamin also helps maintain bone and teeth health, and assists with wound healing.
  • Blueberries and pure blueberry juice are sometimes advertised as an antioxidant food, because of their high levels of polyphenols — in particular, anthocyanins, the phytochemical that gives blueberries their color. The high levels of vitamins A, C and E also contribute to blueberry juice’s reputation as an antioxidant.
  • The pulp in the juice concentrate adds needed fiber to the drink.  Fiber adds bulk, making you feel fuller faster, and can help control your body weight. In addition, it can help your overall digestion and prevent constipation.

I hope you are taking the challenge and adding NingXia Red to your morning routine.  If you want to find out how to get a bottle or two, email me at sadean2@gmail.com.

NingXia Red Challenge

Lycium_chinense(siamak_sabet)_(2)Are you ready for the NingXia Red Challenge?

What?!  You don’t know what NingXia Red is?  Well, this is a quick definition of NingXia Red:  NingXia Red is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils.  

I am taking this challenge this month.  So, what is the challenge?

  • Drink NingXia Red every day.
  • Study, Research, Dig in and find out all you can about NingXia Red.

Well, the first one is easy for me.  I already drink NingXia Red every day.  It is so good.  Now, the second one will be more difficult for me.  I will have to discipline myself to study about this drink every day.  I’ve already begun studying and I am learning so much.

In the definition, the wolfberry is the first ingredient.  The wolfberry, or goji berry is grown in the Ningxia province of China.  This province is called an autonomous province because it is too undeveloped or underpopulated to be a real province.  In this autonomous province grow the best wolfberries in the world.

nx-wolfberries-drying-in-the-sun-in-xingren-ningxiaA significant part of the Ningxia economy revolves around the red wolfberry. Here you see trays of them drying in the sun. A Chinese medical book from 2200 years ago recommends wolfberries, also known as “goji” berries, for strengthening vital organs. The Chinese national Xinhua news agency reports that of the 80 varieties of wolfberry, the type with the best medicinal qualities come from Ningxia.

In the mid-1990s Western health food “discovered” this source and in 1996 Ningxia wolfberries began to be imported into the United States in commercially significant quantities. The claim of the health experts is that the wolfberry has ten times the anti-oxidant qualities of blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries; more beta carotene than chicken liver, carrots, and carrots; and more calcium than spinach.

So what are the benefits to the wolfberry?

The wolfberry benefits are amazing! They provide a natural source of calcium and magnesium, Vitamin B, antioxidants and more.

What are the Benefits of NingXia Red Wolfberry Juice?

  • Fantastic taste with no “junk-juice” (e.g., apple, white grape, pear, etc.) or added sugar.

  • Contains therapeutic grade essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine and orange.
  • Contains natural antioxidants which protect the body against free radicals. It is free radicals that create cell oxidation; therefore Ningxia Red may help prevent against oxidative stress.
  • Highest levels of naturally occurring, age defying S-ORAC activity. Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function and supports healthy eye function.
  • May support natural detoxing process on a daily basis.

Oils from the Bible

I have been reading about the Oils of the Bible.  I read something tonight that really opened my eyes to God’s mighty work in nature.  The following is a quote from “Healing Oils of the Bible.”

 “It takes a life process to produce a living substance.  Only God can do that.  Chemistry is not all there is to the components of an essential oil.  There is also electromagnetic frequency or life force.  If frequency is measured, you find that synthetically produced substances are motionless and inert.  Zero frequency.  At the same time, a naturally grown component in an intact oil gently coaxed from the plant with all of its companion components is vibrant and full of vigor, eager to heal and administer therapy.  In fact, there is intelligence in essential oils that have been properly grown and extracted without adulteration.  Oils produced by living processes are living.  Oils produced by mechanical man-made processes are lifeless.”1

Isn’t that wonderful.  God made the oils that I use, the oils I hope you use in order to assist in life…in our lives.  God uses oils to heal the things we have caused in our body wrong choices and by the fact that we live in a fallen world.

Knowing this just helps me see that being a part of Young Living Essential Oils is because God wants what is best for me.  This is just too much.
