Ningxia!- Health and Wellness

Friends, Ningxia Red is some Young Living GOLD right here! It’s one of the best things you can put in your body, and we’re going to talk about why!

One of the main ingredients in NingXia Red is wolfberries. You can google this and see how many amazing things they do for our bodies! The use of this fruit goes back about 5000 years in Chinese medicine, and is still used in a lot of Chinese herbal remedies.

A study of the wolfberry in the 1980s found that it is 15.6% protein and contains at least 21 essential minerals. It also has significant levels of vitamins. It’s one of the richest known whole food sources of thiamin (natural B1) which is vital for energy production, metabolism, and thyroid function.

Get your lab coats, we’re about to get real sciency.

The wolfberry contains 15.6% protein. Protein is a vital component of white blog cells and antibodies which are some of the most abundant reproducing cells in our bodies. Protein also helps maintain a healthy thymus gland which plays a big part in our immune system.

Leucine is one of the amino acids found in the wolfberry. It is the only dietary protein that can promote healthy muscle and tissue.


Arginine is considered important for healthy immunity. It controls much of the anti-inflammatory responses in the body through the production of nitric oxide. It’s vital for cell division, tissue regeneration, and wound healing. It’s even more effective when combined with glutamine, which is also found in the wolfberry.

Potassium is important for brain and nerve function. Our brains produce GABA. As you age, your brain produces less, and that contributes to the decline of visual recognition and language comprehension because the neurons aren’t firing as fast. The potassium ion channels control the release of GABA.

Zinc is a critical mineral for immunity. The wolfberry has five times as much zinc as Brussels sprouts and more zinc than raw eggs. Zinc deficiencies have produced T-lymphocyte (a subtype of the white blood cell) depletion in the spleen and lymph nodes, impaired antibody response, shrinking of the thymus gland, and lower population of cells related to immunity.

The wolfberry has more fiber than oat bran and double the fiber of buckwheat. It’s rich in soluble fiber which removes triglycerides and cholesterol from the blood. This helps lower the risk of heart disease. A diet high in fiber has been directly linked to a lower risk of cancer, increased stability of blood sugar levels, and a lowered risk of heart disease.

There are also many different kinds of phytonutrients that have been shown to protect the liver, eyes, heart, and cellular DNA from degeneration and disease. There are a number of carotenoids that can help immunity without causing inflammation that worsen arthritis. The wolfberry is one of the richest sources of carotenoids. One of them is zeaxanthin, which is concentrated in the eye. Zeaxanthin and lutein have been shown to protect against skin cancer and protect the eyes against degeneration, blindness, cataracts, and other eye diseases. Another carotenoid found in the wolfberry is beta-cryptoxanthin, which has been shown to inhibit cancer.

Cerebrosides and pyrroles protect against liver damage.

Polysaccharide is a protein sugar complex. It has cardioprotective, anti cancerous, and immune stimulating properties. It can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal system, and can reduce the pH levels in the colon.

Guys, there are literally pages and pages and pages of research done on the wolfberry. It’s one of the most incredible fruits out there! Just one ounce (the size of a shot glass) of NingXia Red is ALL YOU NEED to reap these benefits! It’s so much more than just a drink full of juices!
