I created this space as a place for me to share these loves and passions of mine; what makes my heart beat and colors my days alive. My hope is that this blog is filled with the realness, the rawness, the beautiful, the heart stirring, gut aching, shakey nervousness, slow and pensive, wild and thriving thoughts and moments of LIFE.
Ningxia Red is Young Living’s antioxidant rich, superfood drink that is made from Ningxia Wolfberries. It is full of nutrients and provides some incredible benefits, but you may be thinking to yourself… “is it really worth it?” Let’s break it down!
The main ingredient in Ningxia Red is wolfberries- they’re what makes Ningxia Red that rich, vibrant red color. Ningxia Wolfberries are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and come with a whole lot of benefits. This tasty little drink supports energy levels, normal cellular function, normal eye health, and whole body wellness! It also contains every essential amino acid and up to 21 essential minerals. it has high levels of vitamins B1, B3, and C, and just 1 cup of Ningxia provides the antioxidants found in:
-4 cups of purple grapes
-1 cup of wolfberries
-5 whole cherries
-½ cup of blueberries
-75 pomegranate arils
-¼ cup aronia berries
We are exposed to so many things every day that can lower our immune systems and prevent us from being well. Because of the world we live in, our bodies are exposed to oxidative stress everyday. Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.
And this is why antioxidants are so incredible! Free radicals occur naturally within our bodies and for the most part, our bodies can handle that. However, we are exposed to lots of free radicals through our environment. Pollution, exposure to UV rays, processed foods, exposure to toxins, and certain medications can all contribute to free radicals in our body. We can avoid these things, but we cannot completely avoid free radicals. So by incorporating antioxidant foods and supplements, we can really improve our wellness. Because Ningxia Red is high in antioxidants, it’s something we can all benefit from! Just 1 oz of Ningxia Red will provide us with the antioxidants in 11 pounds of spinach!
So, is it worth the cost!? And how do you budget for this little magical drink?
The answer is yes and let me show you how!
You only need 2-3 ounces of Ningxia a day to get the benefits. A 2 pack of ningxia is $73, which breaks down to just $1.44 an oz.
If you’re not a member yet, the NingXia Red Premium Starter kit is an awesome way to get started! The kit includes 2 bottles of NingXia, 30 single packets, NingXia Nitro, + Stress Away & other goodies. Getting the starter kit lowers the price/ounce and gets you a good supply for getting started!
Once you’re a member, The NingXia Red Essential Rewards kit is by far the best way to get NingXia and will give you the most bang for your buck. With this kit you receive 4 bottles of NingXia and 30 pouches for $187.00, making it only $1.16 an oz. Also, since this is an essential rewards kit, you’ll receive points back on top of that. 10-25% back (depending on how long you’ve been on ER) means you are getting $18-46 back in points!! You can also save up your points and cash them in for FREE NINGXIA!!
The truth is that we spend so much money every week on things that do not boost our health. Coffee, drinks, going out to eat, etc. I love my lattes and I’m not saying we should give them up, but if we want to place value on our health and wellness, we have to be willing to invest in prevention, right?
