It’s a nutrient-rich drink containing juice from antioxidant-providing superfruits, including wolfberries, aronia, blueberries, cherries, pomegranates, and plums mixed with Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine Vitality Essential Oils.

NingXia Red contains several vital nutrients that modern Western diets are often missing or lacking that may enhance your energy and overall well-being.

What are antioxidants and why are they important?

The cells in your body are exposed to oxygen each day. Oxygen is important for your body’s health, but this exposure to oxygen also causes oxidative stress (oxidation). Through oxidation, our body chemicals can be altered and become what are known as free radicals. Exposure to environmental factors, such as sun exposure, cigarette smoke, alcohol and pollution, also creates free radicals.

Over time, free radicals (toxins, synthetic chemicals etc) can cause a chain reaction in your body that damages important body chemistry, DNA, and parts of our cells. Some cells can heal, while others are permanently damaged. Scientists believe free radicals may contribute to the aging process as well as other issues.

Antioxidants are natural substances such as vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that help fight off the damaging effects of free radicals.Your body uses antioxidants to stabilize the free radicals. This keeps them from causing damage to other cells. Antioxidants can protect and reverse the damage caused by oxidation to some extent. Antioxidants occur naturally in plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, coffee, tea, wine, and chocolate. Other popular antioxidants include vitamins A, C and E.

Antioxidants help prevent or stop cell damage caused by oxidants. (Get it? ANTI-oxidants.)

Published Studies Documenting Benefits of NingXia Red's Wolf Berries

Zeaxanthin, an antioxidant in the carotenoid family—a group of naturally occurring, fat-soluble pigments found in plants that play a key role in our immune system support—are abundantly found in goji berry a relative of the wolfberry. Zeaxanthin is a powerful vision protector that accumulates in the macula, the prominent, bright yellow spot in the center of the retina that allows you to clearly distinguish fine detail. The concentration of zeaxanthin in the center of the macula is about 85 times greater than its concentration in the periphery. Consequently, many researchers believe zeaxanthin (and lutein, another carotenoid) may be a potent protectant against macular degeneration , and may retard aging of the lens in preventing cataracts from forming. So, vision support is another one of goji berry’s many health benefits.

This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial is the first study reported from outside China that has examined the general effects of the orally consumed goji berry, Lycium barbarum, as a standardized juice (GoChi; FreeLife International LLC, Phoenix, AZ) to healthy adults for 14 days.

Significant differences between day 1 and day 15 were found in the GoChi group (N = 16) in increased ratings for energy level, athletic performance, quality of sleep, ease of awakening, ability to focus on activities, mental acuity, calmness, and feelings of health, contentment, and happiness. GoChi also significantly reduced fatigue and stress, and improved regularity of gastrointestinal function. In contrast, the placebo group (N = 18) showed only two significant changes (heartburn and happiness). No significant changes in musculoskeletal or cardiovascular complaints were observed in either group. All parametric data (body weight, etc.) were not significantly different between groups or between day 1 and day 15 for either group.

These results clearly indicate that daily consumption of Goji (same family as Wolfberry) for 14 days increases subjective feelings of general well-being, and improves neurologic/psychologic performance and gastrointestinal functions. The data strongly suggest that further research is indicated to confirm and extend knowledge of the potential effects of Lycium barbarum upon human health.

Ways To Use NingXia Red

You've heard us talk about it. It's the best. Sometimes though, no matter how much you and your family already love it, you need to mix things up a bit. Thankfully, NingXia can be used for so many different types of fun drinks and treats. Everyone's going to have their preference on what type of ingredients you want to use, so I'm not going to give specific recipes for these suggestions, but there are a whole lot of them out there, waiting for you to pick them from your internet search. These are just a few ways you can have fun with NingXia Red all while still getting those incredible health and wellness benefits from them:

  1. NingXia Gummies – Imagine making these when the kids go to sleep and when you call out, “Kids, time for your NingXia!” (mine call it “Ninja”) and you hand them a couple of these? They'll love it. You'll feel like the cool mom you know you are.
  2. NingXia Popsicles – So, this might depend on the season, but even then, when do kids turn down popsicles? These are really good, pretty easy to make, and a lot of fun. Just have the Thieves Cleaner handy forthe kitchen or dining room table once they're done.
  3. NingXia Smoothies – You can do one big smoothie recipe (if your family all likes the same type of thing) or you can do small batch recipes.
  4. NingXia Slushies
  5. NingXia Shakes – (scroll down for a few recipe ideas)
  6. NingXia Electrolyte Drink – great for hot summer days, recovering from a workout, or after sports sessions.

Quick Tip: you can sneak some greens into smoothies in small doses without your family even noticing

Personally, my absolute FAVORITE way to drink NingXia Red is to combine:

This is the perfect treat for me, especially with a small piece of dark chocolate. Especially when my kids are being crazy and I just need a quick little self care indulgence.
