Ningxia Red Drink
When I got my Young Living starter kit with a diffuser and oils, it came with two sample packs of Ningxia Red. It took me almost 8 months to drink it. I just didn't know what it was and didn't know much about it. I didn't know what I was missing. The goal of this post is to help others learn about it so it does't sit in your pantry for nearly 8 months.
So why did I get it out of the pantry? I was about 20 weeks pregnant and still feeling like absolute shit. I never truly felt that second trimester bliss that people talk about. So I ordered some vitamin B and gave Ningxia a try. I haven't missed a day since. Liv also has a few ounces a day! As a toddler, her palate is quite limited so at least I know she's getting all the good stuff listed below!
NingXia Red is a whole-food powerhouse the entire family can enjoy! It’s a boost of healthy energy for all, and 2 oz. a day is the best way to get its benefits. Kids, expectant mothers, dogs—everyone loves it. It contains powerful antioxidant-fighting properties that help to fight off free radicals, which can break down your system.
Overall wellness and nutritional support is key, and it's the mainstay of this delicious- tasting supplement. It is recommended you take 1-2 ounces daily, and we take more when we need extra support.
NingXia Red is formulated from exotic fruits, such as the Ningxia wolfberry, and is infused with essential oils. This wonderful supplement supports normal cellular function, eye health, and prevents deterrents due to oxidative stress.
What is a wolfberry? Wolfberries are CRAZY high in antioxidants and so, so, so good for you. Ningxia wolfberries are from the Ningxia region of China, where the most potent species (Lycium barbarum) is grown in the mineral-rich, super fertile soil near the Yellow River. This area is unlike anywhere else on the earth and it shows—this species of wolfberry has the highest antioxidant value.
How do I drink it? I buy the little pouches and mix it with about 20 ounces of ice water. I put some lemon essential oil in there for immunity along with sulfurzyme for hair growth. I give Liv the pouch frozen!
What benefits do I experience? Gut health, gut health and more gut health! Postpartum can be a wild ride especially for your bowel movements. Not this time around, thank you Ningxia. My skin is loving life! I have a 2 year old and a 3 month old so sleep and rest is hard to come by. I really don't feel it most days and love the energy Ningxia gives me.
My breastfeeding journey with Liv wasn't easy. I never really had enough for her. Well fast forward to now, I am probably considered an over supplier. The only difference? Ningxia and my other supplements from Young Living. Yep I did a post about my supplement routine so go check it out!
I wish I started drinking Ningxia way sooner than I did, but better late than never!
