Eating a diet high in antioxidants certainly has its benefits these days. But how do you fit it all in? Our busy schedules make it hard to get all the nutrients our bodies need. But I have a solution! In this blog you will learn all about NingXia Red… a superfruit antioxidant drink. I’ll show you what makes it so special and how EASY it is to incorporate it into your daily life.
Did you know there is a place where 400% more people of age 100+ live without canes to get around or glasses to help them see, and where they are overall very healthy. That place is called NingXia, China, where the superfood NingXia wolfberries originate. The locals have been eating these berries for thousands of years. We are lucky enough to get to use them in our NingXia Red products due to the amazing relationship Gary Young built with the people there.
Ningxia Red is a whole-body supplement. It’s a blend of the Ningxia Wolfberry (also known as goji berries, a superfruit) along with plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts plus pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils. It also has an incredibly high antioxidant rating. Antioxidants make for an unfriendly environment for free radicals. If you don’t know the effects free radicals have on your body, go look it up. You need NingXia in your life!
What’s so great about NingXia Red?
- It supports whole-body wellness.
- It supports normal cellular function.
- It supports normal energy levels & eye health.
- It’s rich in antioxidants & d-limonene.
You can add it to smoothies, juices, drink it straight, or even make fun things like popsicles and gummies with it. It’s recommended that you consume 1-2 ounces a day and it’s best served chilled. This blog is PACKED with ideas on how to incorporate this amazing supplement into your daily routine. Let’s get started!
Try a little NingXia first thing in the morning! NingXia Red is 25% NingXia Wolfberry puree. The puree includes the juice, pulp, and peel of the plant, which contain vitamins and minerals such as Vit C, Vit A, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, riboflavin (B2) and more. A puree allows you to also get fiber and protein. You need all of these things to maintain good health.
A smoothie is a great way to start your morning. It’s fast, it’s an on-the-go type of meal, and it tastes good!
Here are two ways to make sure your breakfast smoothie is complete.
- Add an ounce or two of NingXia Red.
- Add two scoops of Young Living’s Protein Complete powder to make it a complete meal with 25 g of protein!
Here are some easy recipes for you to try!

Ningxia Red Shots
No time to mix up a smoothie? No prob. NingXia Red tastes so good you can drink it straight up as a shot!
If you have an individual packet, you can grab it and go! If you have a bottle, pour yourself a shot or a double and take ‘er down.
In addition to the beneficial vitamins and minerals mentioned before, NingXia wolfberry contains a ton of amino acids including two essential amino acids L-arginine and L-glutamine. The combo of these two offers many health benefits. A quick google search and you can see for yourself! Sure you can eat some shiitake mushrooms* to get your L-arginine, but wouldn’t you rather take a shot of NingXia Red with a yummy berry taste?
*NingXia Red has more L-arginine than shiitake mushrooms!
PRO TIP: Add a drop of your favorite oils from the Vitality line. I highly recommend Thieves Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Orange Vitality and Frankincense Vitality on the regular!
Here are some easy “SHOT” recipes for you to try!
- 1 oz. NingXia Red
- 1 drop Thieves Vitality
- 1 drop Copaiba Vitality
- 1 oz. NingXia Red
- 1 drop Peppermint Vitality
- 1 drop Orange Vitality
- 1 oz. NingXia Red
- 1 drop Grapefruit Vitality
Ningxia Red Bomb
If you ever feel that post-lunch slump, you can mix up this NingXia Bomb that will give you a ton of energy for the rest of the day. It’s amazing!
- 1 can of NingXia Zyng
- 1 packet of NingXia NITRO
- 1-2 oz. NingXia Red
Mix these three ingredients into a glass with ice, stir, and enjoy!
NingXia NITRO is 20 ml of healthy natural ingredients that support your health and keep you focused. With naturally occurring caffeine, it will help you stay energized.
NingXia Zyng is a light sparkling beverage with only 35 calories and 35 mg of naturally occurring caffeine.
You can always enjoy these individually. Together they bring it to a new level!
Fun Fact: The NingXia Wolfberry is also a complex carbohydrate, which means your blood sugar will rise slowly, reducing the risk of a sugar crash afterward. This is one reason why it is a much better alternative than conventional gas station energy drinks that are filled with sugar and catapult you into a sugar high and lead to a crash.
NingXia Red Mocktails & Cocktails
NingXia Red is packed with superfoods that support normal eye health and your immune system. If you remember earlier I said it contains plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts, plus Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils. These ingredients make NingXia Red a guilt-free fun drink.
How awesome is it that you can support your health while you drink a fun mocktail?!

NingXia Red Desserts
You’ve heard me talk about antioxidants quite a bit. But why?
Having an antioxidant-rich diet is REALLY good for your health. You could certainly eat a bunch of fruits and veggies that are high in antioxidants but sometimes it’s hard to get the quantity you really need. Our busy schedules make this tough! Plus, you might have a picky eater on your hands. Any moms out there?
NingXia Red is insanely high in antioxidants. NingXia wolfberries are one of the fruits highest on the ORAC scale. The ORAC scale measures antioxidant levels. For more information about the ORAC scale, google it. Just 1-2 ounces a day of NingXia Red will give your body the antioxidants it needs. The best part is that kids beg for this stuff! It’s tasty!
Here are a few fun ways to incorporate NingXia Red in the “dessert” world, which will REALLY get those kids (and adults!) interested.
NingXia Red Popsicles
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 apple
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 cup spinach or other vegetable (optional)
- 6 oz of NingXia Red*
Blend all the ingredients; pour into popsicle molds. I love dropping a few unblended berries into each mold to add some fun fruit texture to the popsicles. Freeze until firm. Enjoy!
* Can be substituted for 4 oz. NingXia Red and 2 oz. orange juice
PRO TIP: The easiest way to make a popsicle is to toss a NingXia Red packet into the freezer. Once frozen, cut the top off and eat it like a push-pop.
Another easy option is to take your favorite smoothie recipe, add your NingXia Red, and pour it into popsicle molds. These are fun activities to do with kids and they really enjoy this healthy dessert.
