30 Days of NingXia Red
Day 1: NingXia Red Challenge
Are you ready to:
• feel better
• have more energy
• curb those sugar cravings
• sleep better
• and get more whole food goodness into your diet?
Then you need 30 days of NingXia Red I will be posting a reminder post each morning to help you stay on track… so let’s kick off this 30-day challenge!
Just one ounce of NingXia Red has the antioxidant power equivalent to 4 lbs of carrorts or 3 cups of raspberries?
That’s a whole lot of fruit and vegetables. NingXia Red is an amazing whole-food nutrient drink. Who else is thinking the kids need it too?
Watch this video on the benefits of NingXia Red (25 minutes):
Drink 1-2 ounces 2 times daily. It’s best served chilled, but you can enjoy it at room temperature too.
One thing I do recommend is to shake well before each use because all that wolfberry goodness is on the bottom.
Refrigerate after opening and consume with in 30 days.
Day 2: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s dive deeper into WHY NingXia Red is soooooooooo special…
Did you know that if you exercise, drink alcohol or feel stressed then that amount needs to be doubled or tripled?
We need 5000 ORAC scale units of bio-available antioxidants daily as a minimum to cope with the average rate of oxidation (aging of cells in our body).
The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) test, developed by USDA researchers at Tufts University, is one of the most valuable methods for measuring the ability of antioxidants to absorb oxygen radicals.
You would have to eat TWO entire baskets of organic blueberries and half a pound of raisins daily to get the same amount that’s in ONE ounce of NingXia Red.
What?! Yep, NingXia Red is made with WOLFBERRIES… one of the best known superfoods on this planet is the wolfberry.
You may be familiar with goji berries. Wolfberries are the same thing. Wolfberries are from China; Goji berries are from India.
Not all wolfberries are created equal! The best source – and the highest on the ORAC scale (25,300 per 100gr) – comes from Ningxia Province in China.
Locals there live beyond 110 – 120 years of age, with good health and an active mind and body.
Some have even been reported to have completed a PhD whilst in their 90’s. What?? We’ll take some of what they’re having, thanks!
The Huang He (Yellow) River originates in the Himalayan Mountains and flows through the Ningxia Province.
This river creates a unique, mineral-rich, super fertile silt-water flood plain, like none found elsewhere on earth, producing incomparably potent wolfberries.
It is in this floodplain of the NingXia Valley where the wolfberries are highest in antioxidants.
The beautiful Ningxia region is called “China’s herbal medicine valley” and is renowned for meeting all of the stringent rules to be awarded the prestigious “Green Certificate” – the equivalent of the USDA’s Organic Certification.
ORAC Scores of Various Foods
Wolfberry (Fructus Lycii / Lycium / Gou Qi Zi)…..25,300
As you can see, Ningxia Wolfberries are one of the top superfoods for a good reason. Not only are they loaded full of antioxidants and benefit the immune system, they are also effective in helping our bodies stay as healthy as possible.
In addition, many therapeutic-grade Young Living essential oils also score extremely high on the ORAC scale.
Did you know that all of Young Living’s products contain essential oils? Even their nutritional supplements.
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today. Add a drop of Lemon Vitality to add some flavor.
Day 3: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s learn some fun facts about WOLFBERRIES and the NingXia Province – where wolfberries are from…
The Chinese Wolfberry is one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits around.
They contain more antioxidants than blueberries, pomegranates, carrots, and spinach!
Chinese Wolfberries contain more beta-carotene, a type of antioxidant, than carrots. Antioxidants may have anti-aging and cancer-fighting effects. BAM!
Chinese Wolfberries are believed to be good for vision.
Chinese Wolfberries are used to help with eyesight. Inspired by the traditional use of these berries, scientists are studying the fruit and its potential to lower retina damage from type-2 diabetes.
Chinese Wolfberries are grown on vines in Mongolia, Tibet and Ningxia, China.
Often cultivated in valleys, Chinese Wolfberry plants can grow up to 3 m tall. The Ningxia region is said to produce the best Chinese Wolfberries in the world.
Chinese Wolfberries are traditionally used for the skin.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the berries are believed to promote youthful-looking skin by nourishing yin and improving blood production.
Ningxia Red contains the puree from the whole Ningxia wolfberries.
Young Living uses all of the valuable parts—the juice, peel, seeds, and fruit—to ensure that each bottle contains the optimal blend of nutrients offered by this extraordinary fruit. You can see this before you shake the bottle.
We’re not talking juice, guys. We’re talking about a whole food supplement which is why you don’t see the blood sugar spikes and other issues commonly associated with juices.
DID YOU KNOW?
Declining potassium levels may be directly connected with increased signs of aging. A multi-year longitudinal study on aging conducted at the University of Missouri measured the potassium levels in 650 subjects over the course of nearly two decades.
Researchers found that between age 40 and 60, potassium levels in the body drop by over 13 percent. Ningxia wolfberries are one of the richest known foods in potassium.
You may want to research the many benefits of healthy potassium levels for the body to determine if this is something that could have a huge impact on your health!
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today. Add a drop of Grapefruit Vitality and enjoy!

Day 5: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s talk more about the nutrition content with NingXia Red. It is LOADED with nutrients. Think about how much produce you’d need to buy to get the same amount of nutrients in NingXia Red.
One cup of Ningxia (based on antioxidant value and juice concentrate reconstitution) is equal to approximately:
4 cups of purple grapes
1 cup of wolfberries
5 whole cherries
½ cup blueberries
75 pomegranate arils
¼ cup aronia berries
Plus, it’s got Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils. Strategically chosen for their health-supporting benefits and flavor profiles, these oils are 93 percent d-limonene – a powerful antioxidant and marker for bioactivity and contain the flavone tangerine.
Together this blend adds premium, natural flavoring and helps maintain the body’s normal cellular function.
Put a NingXia Red packet in the freezer and enjoy as a frozen treat. The kids will LOVE it.
Day 6: NingXia Red Challenge
SELFIE TIME! Take a selfie of you drinking your NingXia Red! Let’s see those red mustaches!
And I want to share my personal story with NingXia Red… I hate to admit that it took me a while to hop on the NingXia Red train. At first, I was like, “What is this red ninja stuff?!”
And then I started drinking it everyday and I couldn’t believe how much better I felt. I had more energy and, ahem, had no problems in the bathroom.
I NEED my NingXia Red right around 2 pm to give me that extra boost to get through the afternoon with my three crazy kids.
My 3 boys absolutely NingXia Red. Like I can’t stock the single packets in my pantry fast enough.
They like to put them in the freezer and enjoy them as afterschool snacks. We don’t do juice in our house so NingXia Red packets are their guilty pleasure – though I know it’s soooooo good for them!
My favorite way to drink NingXia Red is right out of the packet. OR I like to put it in a shot glass and add 2 drops of Citrus Fresh. It’s sooooooo refreshing!
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today with Citrus Fresh Vitality.
Day 7: NingXia Red Challenge
Today, let’s talk kids & Ningxia
NingXia Red isn’t just for adults – it’s for EVERY member of the family.
I have 3 boys (ages 7, 11, and 13) and they all drink NingXia Red EVERY DAY. It’s the first thing they do when they get home from school.
They run into the kitchen and grab a frozen NingXia Red single packet from the freezer, cut it open, and enjoy it like a popsicle.
So YES, you can totally give Ningxia Red to your kiddos! Think about how difficult it can be to get all the veggies and nutrition needed into their little bodies.
Whether they’re picky, or have difficulty with certain textures or flavors…having an option they like is actually priceless.
(For those who might ask how young to give NingXia, personally I started when my youngest was just 18 months (that’s when I started with YL).
But I have lots of friends of littles who started once their kiddos were eating solid food.
Nutrition is powerful for our body makeup, but it’s also helpful when you’re feeling grumpy. Fill your body (or your child’s) with something that truly feeds it.
What the body needs. Skip the sugary drinks or snacks that may give a temporary boost, but lead to unhealthy living in the long run.
We want healthy living! No bad sugar crashes.
If you look at ingredients in typical cereals and observe their ads (marketing directly to children), you’ll see they’re very high in sugar and grains.
They may be happy (or hyper) for a bit, but what these kinds of food lead to is not how we want to start their day (or build their bodies).
Give your children the NingXia wolfberry (via Dried Wolfberries or Ningxia Red)!
It’s been studied for its powerful ability to promote and maintain healthy blood sugar levels through its low glycemic index. We want happy kids in our homes!
Got kids who play sports or always on the go?
You can still enjoy NingXia Red in these 2 oz. single-serving packets. I keep them in my pantry and take them with me if I’m rushing out the door in the morning or need an energy boost in the afternoon while out with the kids.
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today and give 1-2 oz to your kids too.
Day 8: NingXia Red Challenge
Did you know you can make DELICIOUS treats with NingXia Red?
Yesterday, we talked about why kids should be enjoying NingXia Red too. It’s so good for them and a great substitute for sugary juice drinks and soda.
AND you can make tasty treats for them to enjoy… and they won’t even know it’s good for them.
NINGXIA RED FROZEN TREAT
One quick way is to put the 2 oz single packets in the freezer and in a couple of hours you’ll have the easiest, most nutritious popsicles ever for the kids.
NINGXIA RED POPSICLES
1 cup water
2 cups Ningxia Red
3 drops Citrus Fresh Vitality Oil
Freeze in popsicle molds until solid
1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup frozen fruit mango, berries, etc.
1/2 cup NingXia Red
5 tbsp grass-fed gelatin
2 tbsp organic maple syrup or raw honey
4 drops Orange essential oil
2 drops Lemon essential oil
Get the directions here: https://dontmesswithmama.com/ningxia-red-gummy-fruit-snacks/
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today, and try one of these tasty treats to try for yourself and your kids.
Day 9: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s talk about CAFFEINE. NingXia Red is an excellent substitute for caffeine because it provides sustained energy – not an energy spike like coffee.
We can probably all agree that having energy is fabulous. But we don’t want the crash that comes with a caffeine high, right? Because then we’re useless again which is no fun.
Caffeine highs can create addiction. Sad! Most of us know it can affect blood pressure, sleep, and productivity. But it also has a huge impact on emotions and stability.
I read recently that caffeine triggers a release of adrenaline. Many of us know that adrenaline is the source of our “fight or flight” response.
This is what helps us fight or run for the hills when faced with a threat.
The fight-or-flight mechanism side-steps rational thinking in favor of a faster response.
So it’s like this… when a bear is chasing you then that fight-or-flight response is good.
But when you’re just doing everyday life that constant fight-or-flight can make you feel like you’re an emotional basket case. Who else has ever felt like this?
We want to be emotionally stable!
The negative effects of a caffeine-generated adrenaline surge are not just behavioral according to researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.
The scientists found that large doses of caffeine raise blood pressure, stimulate the heart, and produce rapid shallow breathing.
This “deprives the brain of the oxygen needed to keep your thinking calm and rational.”
RESOURCE: Caffeine: The Silent Killer of Success by Travis Bradberry
Is this convicting to anyone else? Just me??
Of course smaller amounts or occasional caffeine is unlikely to have adverse effects. But many are totally dependent!
Let’s work together and do these THREE things:
- Drink more water… sometimes when we drink caffeinated drinks we ease up on our water consumption.
2. Ask ourselves… are we dependent on caffeine? It’s okay. This is a safe place. I admit I’ve been there too and have come a long way.
3. Watch the sugar… many times we drink caffeine in the form of a sugary blended coffee drink or venti latte loaded with sugar.
A great way to slowly ease off of caffeine and those sugary coffee drinks is with Ningxia Red!
Ningxia Nitro and Ningxia Zyng are also AMAZING alternatives that we’ll talk about this week too.
They have very small amounts of naturally occurring caffeine from green or white tea and have other ingredients to help with physical and cognitive function.
Drink 2 oz of NingXia Red in the morning AND afternoon. See how you feel with that additional afternoon dose.
Day 10: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s do a comparison to some of our favorite morning coffee drinks vs. NingXia Red…
Tall Caramel Frappuccino
11 grams fat
70 mg caffeine
Tall Iced Caramel Macchiato
5 grams fat
24 grams sugar
75 mg caffeine
2 oz NingXia Red with 1 can of La Croix
5 grams sugar (from fruit, no sugar added)
WHOA! When you see the comparison like that it’s shocking to see how much sugar and calories are in those coffee drinks. And those are tall (small sizes)… let’s be real most of us probably get the grande or venti sizes. I know I did.
Now is the BEST time to make to switch. Ditch those sugary coffee drinks and opt for NingXia Red instead.
BUT it’s pumpkin spice season! Here are some ways you can STILL enjoy PSL:
Add that Thieves + Orange in the diffuser and enjoy the aroma.
Add a drop of Cinnamon Bark Vitality to a shot of NingXia Red.YUM!
Make your own coconut creamer with Cinnamon Bark + Clove Vitality oils and sweeten it with raw honey or stevia… and add to your own cup of coffee or tea… or even try it with Slique Tea (which is an oolong tea with a hint of chocolate)
Make a NingXia Red spritzer with a can of La Croix. Add Citrus Fresh or Grapefruit Vitality and ENJOY!
Day 11: NingXia Red Challenge
Okay… yesterday we talked about kicking the caffeine addiction. Tall order, right?
Well, let’s talk about NingXia Nitro – it’s like NingXia Red cousin. It can help provide mental alertness, focus, and a boost of energy…
YES! It’s perfect for busy moms who are on the go, anyone with a busy lifestyle, and even athletes who want a boost for performance.
There’s an energy blend in NingXia Nitro that SUPPORTS the body and adrenal glands.
It’s the perfect substitute for those energy drinks and supplements.
NingXia Nitro blends pure essential oils (Peppermint, Spearmint, Black Pepper, and Nutmeg) with naturally powerful ingredients such as d-ribose, green tea extract, and B vitamins.
These ingredients, in addition to a Nitro blend of vanilla, chocolate, wolfberry seed, and yerba mate, provide a lift to one’s mental clarity and focus, while also providing a surge of energy.
Designed to be taken when a boost is needed and with less caffeine than a cup of coffee, Nitro is a perfect option for on-the-go use.
HOW TO USE
• One pouch is a serving
• It has a berry taste with a hint of chocolate
• It can be taken alone or with other NingXia products
Drink a NingXia Nitro along with 1 oz of NingXia Red. How do you feel? If you really have an energy slump in the afternoon, take Nitro then as well.
Day 12: NingXia Red Challenge
One of our FAVORITE drinks in our home is NingXia Zyng. It’s one of the newer NingXia products but oh my goodness… my husband LOVES them.
NingXia Zyng is very refreshing and a little bubbly. It’s made with whole-fruit wolfberry puree, the same that’s in NingXia Red, along with sparkling water, pear and blackberry juices, and a hint of Lime and Black Pepper essential oils.
With natural flavors and sweeteners, white tea extract, and added vitamins, NingXia Zyng delivers 35 mg of naturally occurring caffeine and only 35 calories per can, making it a sweet, guilt-free boost for your early morning, long afternoon, or anytime you need a little Zyng!
I have to get at least 3 cases of NingXia Zyng every month – that was the deal to get my husband Trevor off Rockstar and Monster Energy drinks (yes, I know gross).But I LOVE that he has this alternative that he enjoys.
Even my kids will split one every now and then as a substitute for soda but with with the sugar and way less caffeine.
We also like to use Zyng as a replacement for mixers in our alcoholic drinks too. Try Zyng with 1 oz of vodka or rum and add a drop of Lime Vitality. Yum!
Drink a Ningxia Zyng in the afternoon for a pick-me-up. Add 1 oz of NingXia Red and a drop of Citrus Fresh. YUM!
Day 13: NingXia Red Challenge

Club Red is the name of the NingXia Red bar at the Young Living annual convention. They serve up all kinds of amazing, non-alcoholic NingXia Red concoctions that are DELICIOUS!

Day 15: NingXia Red Challenge
We are officially at the HALFWAY mark? How have you been feeling? AMAZING right?
This is just the start, my friend. Just wait to see how you feel after 30 days. You’ll NEVER want to be without your NingXia Red. It’s our go-to nutritional supplement in our home.
As you keep drinking your NingXia Red, you likely want to share with your friends… because they probably need some help too.
So here are answers to frequently asked questions that we get about NingXia Red to help you…
Q: What is the Ningxia Wolfberry? Is it the same as the Goji Berry?
A: Pretty much, yes. There can be some slight variations. The wolfberry is full of antioxidant power, protein, all necessary amino acids (very important for vegetarians and vegans), highest whole food source of potassium, zinc, and fiber.
Q: Where do our Ningxia Wolfberries come from?
A: Our Ningxia Wolfberry is sourced from a partner farm in China, certified as organic, with carefully sourced water avoiding pollutants from the Yellow River.
Q: Why is there sodium benzoate in Ningxia Red?
A: Sodium benzoate is a naturally occurring preservative in apples, clove, prunes, and many other plants that keeps the plant from fermenting.
While Young Living does not even have to disclose the .00025 amount of sodium benzoate on the label, they choose to reveal its presence so that you are informed as a consumer.
This allows this product to be bottled and sold safely without risk of quick fermentation.
Q: Is Ningxia Red safe during pregnancy and nursing?
A: Only you can answer that question. It is your body and your pregnancy. It is full of plants and nutrients that are generally considered safe and beneficial for mother and baby. Ningxia Nitro and Zyng contain lower amounts of caffeine than coffee or tea.
Q: When can children begin drinking Ningxia Red?
A:This is the decision of you as the informed parent or caregiver. I choose to give to my children at the point that I am giving them other plant-based foods.
It is usually best to begin with 1 oz. and then work up to the adult recommendation of 2 oz. My children 2+ all drink 2+ ounces per day.
Q: Can I use NIngxia Red if I have diabetes?
A: You must answer that question based on your body’s response to the product. Drink Ningxia, wait 15 minutes, and then check your blood sugar.
Add healthy fats and proteins whenever taking in sugars, even those naturally occurring in fruits. It does fall well within recommended guidelines for carb and sugar intake for those with diabetes.
Q: Can I use Ningxia Red if I need to avoid nightshades?
A: There is evidence to suggest that some nightshades can exaggerate inflammation in the body and should be avoided by those with autoimmune diseases.
The Ningxia wolfberry contains a balance between the polysaccharides and solanine that suggest that balance may be in place with this particular fruit. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4277126/
Q: Can I use Ningxia Red if I’m on blood thinning medications?
A: Make sure that you inform yourself about your specific mediations and know your body. There have been people who have reported a thinning of blood with regular usage of the wolfberry.
If on medications, be very sure that you consistently use your Ningxia daily and at the same amount. This way, your doctor can help you adjust your dosage to work well with your Ningxia intake.
Drink 2 oz of NingXia Red and add a drop of Grapefruit Vitality. Grapefruit is known to help curb cravings so it’s great to have in the afternoon when you get those sugar cravings.

Day 17: NingXia Red Challenge
Have you tried Sulfurzyme Powder???
Wait?! There’s a powder? Yep! Let’s talk about it…
Sulfurzyme POWDER is different than Sulfurzyme capsules because it contains a PRE-biotic, which helps with gut help. It helps detox the body. It feeds into the methylation process with MSM. MSM is nutritional sulfur.
Every single protein starts with a sulfur-containing amino acid so we need to maintain a healthy supply of it so it doesn’t steal it from another source within our body. Sulfur is a major detoxer for heavy metals.
We are exposed to heavy metals every day so sulfur is important to take every day. It takes the heavy metal, adds a sulfur to it, converts it to a less toxic form which the body then can get rid of more easily. This is not just MSM.
Young Living sources their MSM from sources that we can trust and it tests every single batch for mercury, lead, pesticides, and more to ensure it’s a thorough analysis.
It’s also mixed with wolfberry puree powder. It contains fructooligosaccharides, which has prebiotic qualities.
Go to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20119826 to learn more.
Supports healthy weight management
Supports clear skin
Supports healthy joints
Supports fast recovery times (sports/fitness)
Supports healthy digestion, detoxification + elimination
Supports Brain Health
(Sulfa allergic people–this is NOT the same thing!!! This is nutritional sulfur and is safe for people with a sulfa allergy)
Lime oil is 100% pure bioflavonoids, which help supports the immune system, stimulate the detox pathway, helps with absorption of Vitamin C, extra microcirculation, and limonene. 3 drops has 150 ml of bioflavonoids!
Okay so how do you take Sulfurzyme Powder??? You’ve got to try this.
Sulfurzyme Powder Drink
The Red Drink by Dr Peter Minke
Sulfurzyme POWDER (not the capsules)
Lime Vitality essential oil
Use an empty bottle of Ningxia Red filled to the beginning of the neck of the bottle with filtered water.
Add 1-2 oz Ningxia Red to the water. Add 1 teaspoon of Sulfurzyme POWDER. Add 3 drops of Lime Vitality Essential Oil.
Drink this throughout the day – you should be able to drink an entire bottle in a day.
Learn how to make the Red Drink + all the benefits by Dr. Peter Minke:
NingXia Red is a puree filled with water soluble antioxidants plus essential oils, which has fat soluble antioxidants.
It’s the only antioxidant drink on the market (as far as he knows) that contains water soluble and fat soluble antioxidants.
We need water for good circulation and overall health and wellness. If you wake up achy, foggy, get tired easily, you probably are dehydrated and aren’t drinking enough water.
Connective tissue gets sticky and blood gets thick, which doesn’t allow mitochondria to work effectively which leads to oxidative stress.
This leads to inflammation and chronic issues. Hydration helps to maintain healthy joints, circulation, muscles, etc.
Who has used Sulfurzyme powder or made this “red drink”?
And who else is going to STOCK UP??? Get it while you can. I’ve heard the supplies are really LIMITED.
If you have Sulfurzyme Powder, make the Red Drink. It’s so yummy!
Or you can pair 1-2 oz of NingXia Red with 2 capsules of Sulfurzyme (I take the capsules by mouth rather than open them to make the Red Drink… the Sulfurzyme Powder tastes WAY better in the Red Drink).
Day 18: NingXia Red Challenge
Where are our pregnant mamas? Let’s talk about how NingXia Red can help to support pregnancy. I so wish I had oils + NingXia Red when I was pregnant with my boys.
So let’s talk about how it ROCKS…
Hear from our royal crown diamond Lindsey Gremont talk about her experience with NingXia Red during pregnancy:
“I can’t say enough about the Ningxia Red drink and how it helped to support me during my first trimester and now beyond.
It gave me an energy boost I dearly needed and it helped to support my digestion which we all know gets wonky during pregnancy.
But most of all it was something I could grab when I became STARVING in 2 seconds flat. I could at least drink that and stave off the gagging until I could get a bigger snack!”
And NingXia Red isn’t just good for pregnant mamas… it’s great for growing babies too. Think about all those whole food nutrients and antioxidants that help babies grow strong.
Here are some yummy ways to drink your Ningxia! Personally, I drink 2oz in the morning with orange vitality and 2 oz in the afternoon with cinnamon bark vitality.
2 oz. Ningxia Red
4 drops Grapefruit Vitality Oil
4 oz. (or to taste) sparkling water, club soda, etc.
Mommy’s Midday Mix or “The Mommy Mojito”
2 oz. Ningxia
1 drop lime EO
What is/was your pregnancy cocktail? Did you notice it making a difference in how you made it through your day?
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today with one of the recipes above.
Day 19: NingXia Red Challenge
Did you know that our furry friends can enjoy NingXia Red too? What?! Yep!
Just as NingXia Red supports our healthy blood pressure, skin, sleep, immune systems and provides us antioxidant support, it can work to give our pets and barnyard critters a better quality of life.
Ningxia Red is generally administered via syringe diluted 1 to 1 with water. Some cats will drink, but most will not. Some will accept mixed into food. For general maintenance, cats consume approximately ½ teaspoon per day.
As general maintenance approximately ½ teaspoon Ningxia Red given orally can be used to boost immunity and also as a means to give other needed supplements or oils to birds as needed.
The juice can be syringed into the mouth, offered mixed into foods, given straight or diluted with water. If added to drinking water, care must be taken to change it frequently or it will spoil.
Depending on the nutritional needs and health of the dog, Ningxia can be added to food, given directly, or administered by dropper. Dogs are generally quite accepting to Ningxia Red.
Dogs up to 20 pounds generally get ½ ounce per day. Dogs 20-50 pounds, ½ ounce per day. Dogs 50-100 pounds, ¾ ounce per day. Dogs over 100 pounds get a full ounce per day as maintenance.
HORSES + LIVESTOCK
Horses, cows, and larger livestock have also been known to benefit from the immune support of Ningxia Red.
They can often drink straight or by syringe. For performance horses and animals, often 3 ounces per day is given. Endurance horses have been known to excel when given packets of Ningxia during a race.

¾ cup Young Living Yacon Syrup (or 15 drops of Stevia extract)
4 drops Tangerine essential oil
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh raspberries
Mix together almond milk, NingXia Red, Yacon Syrup, Tangerine essential oil, and vanilla extract. Add ingredients to an ice cream or yogurt maker.
Add the fruit halfway through the freezing process or when serving (this keeps the fruit from freezing solid).
If you’re looking for a super simple way to enjoy a NingXia Red treat, just put a 2 oz packet in the freezer. Once frozen, just cut the top off the packet and enjoy as a popsicle.
Enjoy 1-2 oz of NingXia Red as a frozen treat. Either put a packet in the freezer or make a popsicle or this sherbert

Day 23: NingXia Red Challenge
Did you know that NingXia Red + EndoFlex Vitality can help to support your adrenals, which supports energy and emotions?
You might be like what are the adrenals? The adrenals are very small glands that can cause a lot of grief when they aren’t well maintained. However, they don’t work in isolation.
Energy levels and the hormones that are released from our adrenals trace back to commands from our nervous system.
They are workers, doing a job. If we do not change the instructions they are receiving, they don’t have permission to do anything but exactly what they are doing – trying to help you survive.
The adrenals have to work overtime when we are stuck in Fight or Flight mode. Imagine you were called in to do “temporary” overtime at a job 15 or 30 years ago, but your schedule never went back to normal.
I would personally have left the job! But our adrenals are stuck with us. You may have heard that this stress mode is like a bear is chasing you.
Here are some of the emotions (or wild ferocious beasts!) that can cause your nervous system to call the adrenals in for overtime so they can help you run away from your stress (flight) or dominate the threat (fight).
Now think about how you FEEL when you’re in Fight or Flight mode? Probably something like this:
• Morning fatigue — You don’t really seem to “wake up” until 10 a.m., even if you’ve been awake since 7 a.m.
• Afternoon “low” (feelings of sleepiness or clouded thinking) from 2 to 4 p.m.
• Burst of energy at 6 p.m. — You finally feel better from your afternoon lull.
• Sleepiness at 9 to 10 p.m. — However, you resist going to sleep.
• “Second wind” at 11 p.m. that lasts until about 1 a.m., when you finally go to sleep.
• Cravings for foods high in salt and fat
• Lack of energy
• Lightheadedness when getting up from a sitting or laying down position
• Decreased sex drive
Consistently drinking NingXia Red provides nourishment to the adrenals. As our body builds up stores of what it needs to keep our energy more consistent, we’re able to heal from the cycle of crazy ups and downs that come with poor nutrition, lack of stress management skills, and lack of rest.
If you would like to take your routine up a notch for even more results in sustained energy levels, you might introduce Nutmeg Vitality or EndoFlex Vitality – a blend made with spearmint, sage, geranium, myrtle, and nutmeg essential oils.
Both oils help to support the endocrine system when taken internally. So add a drop or two to your daily dose of NingXia Red.
Add 1-2 drops of EndoFlex Vitality or Nutmeg Vitality to 1-2 oz of NingXia Red.
Day 24: NingXia Red Challenge
A daily dose of NingXia Red helps to support the immune system... but there are two oils that help to SUPERCHARGE that immune support and both are in your premium starter kit.
Copaiba Vitality is made with the gum resin tapped from the copaiba tree native to Brazil and is known for its beta-caryophyllene content and sweet aroma.
Copaiba Vitality has a pleasant, complex taste, and when taken internally, it promotes wellness and supports the immune system.
So word of the day: beta caryophyllene. Go Google it and find out why it rocks… and know that Copaiba Vitality has it.
Thieves Vitality is a blend made with cinnamon, clove, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus. It’s Young Living’s most popular oil and rightly so because it’s AMAZING for immune and respiratory support when taken internally.
Go Google the benefits of Thieves and be prepared to have your socks knocked off.
Copaiba Vitality has a mild taste, while Thieves Vitality has a spicy taste so together they pair well with NingXia Red.
It’s like your daily wellness shot to protect you from all the yuck going around this fall and winter.
And if Thieves Vitality is too strong for the kiddos, they’ll like the mild taste of Copaiba Vitality.
Add 1 drop each of Copaiba Vitality and Thieves Vitality to 1-2 oz of NingXia Red.
Day 25: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s talk skin care… wait what? NingXia Red can help with that? Oh yeah!
Beauty may only be skin deep, but caring for your skin starts with some of your body’s most basic functions.
That’s why taking care of your skin is more than simply applying serums and creams.
Keeping your skin its best also requires proper sun protection, plenty of sleep, and a healthy diet that includes a variety of vitamins and minerals.
A diet full of healthy, unprocessed food is an easy way to care for your skin at its structural level, but lots of Young Living supplements also contain ingredients that support healthy-looking skin.
Check out a few noteworthy beauty boosters and some of our essential oil-infused favorites that include them!
You’ve heard people buzzing about antioxidants and free radicals, but do you know what they are?
Free radicals are reactive molecules that can cause cell damage, and exposure comes from daily living, including things like your body breaking down food, time in the sun, and pollution.
When it comes to neutralizing these molecules, antioxidants play an important role. Add these defenders to your diet by looking for richly colored fruits and veggies (think blueberries, blackberries, cherries, plums, kale, spinach, and beets) and nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Think “healthy fat” is an oxymoron? Think again! Your body needs omega-3 fatty acids on a structural level since they are part of cell membranes and help with cell function.
And your body can’t create these fats on its own—you can only get them directly from food. That makes a diet rich in omega-3s especially important. To up your intake, eat food like walnuts, leafy greens, flax seed, and fresh or canned fish.
We love using: OmegaGize + Mindwise
We’re not just talking about whiting out your nose to protect it from the sun’s rays. The trace mineral zinc is actually a little-known skin saver. That’s because your body’s cells, particularly skin cells, rely on this mineral to function.
It helps support the skin, in addition to promoting balanced oil production. Add some zinc to your diet with lobster, crab, oysters, cashews, almonds, chicken, chickpeas, and other beans.
We love using: Master Formula + Ningxia Wolfberries
For healthy-looking skin that feels truly cared for, don’t skip the beauty basics! Fill your diet with these nutrients and nourish your body from the inside out.
Drink your 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today and add one of the supplements we listed above.
Day 26: NingXia Red Challenge
Did you know there’s a book written by Young Living founder Gary Young all about the benefits of NingXia Red?
Yeah, I didn’t either and I just ordered it because… WOW! The description has so much goodness and I can’t wait to learn about all the goodness on NingXia Red.
DID YOU KNOW
Your body tries to get rid of toxins while sleeping and this leaves your stomach acidic in the morning when you wake.
You should drink something alkaline to help flush this and the toxins out first thing each morning. Not something acidic such as coffee first thing. Acidity is where disease thrives.
NingXia Red is alkaline AND high in fiber. Hello… get those toxins flushed and get them OUT of your system.
Try adding your 2 oz of NingXia Red each morning to 8oz of water to hydrate the body even more and flush it out.
NingXia Red contains some of our citrus vitality oils to help our body absorb the wolfberry puree even more. That is what is so cool about our supplements, they are oil infused which increases the absorption rate.
NingXia Red has an ORAC value of 30,000+!!!! This is insane! ORAC measures the antioxidant value in food. For those who don’t want to google that… this is crazy good for you.
Enjoy 1-2 oz of NingXia Red with one of your favorite citrus Vitality oils.
Day 27: NingXia Red Challenge
DID YOU KNOW… using NingXia Red and Young Living essential oils can help to boost energy naturally?
NingXia Red on its own helps to provide sustained energy and can be a fantastic substitute for caffeine. But when you pair it with Vitality oils… WOW! You’ll get an extra boost of energy.
Let’s talk about the best Vitality oils to support energy:
• Citrus oils such as lime, lemon, and grapefruit refresh the mind and aid in concentration.
• Peppermint and Spearmint stimulate the mind and body and regulate the digestive system.
• Basil relieves mental fatigue.
• Ginger and Frankincense give an energy boost – especially when you’re short on sleep
• Rosemary and Black Pepper help with mental fatigue.
And while En-R-Gee essential oil blend is not a Vitality oil, you can use it topically to help boost mental alertness. It’s not my favorite scent so I usually put it on my feet.
Add 1-2 drops of the Vitality oils above (or mix and match but don’t do more than 3 drops total) with 1-2 oz of NingXia Red.
Day 28: NingXia Red Challenge

Day 29: NingXia Red Challenge
Let’s talk sugar and food cravings… who’s got them?
DID YOU KNOW… that NingXia Red helps to curb those sugar cravings? Yep! And there are oils that can help with both sugar AND food.
So when you pair them together, you’ll be able to keep those cravings in check and meet your weight management goals.
• Slique Essence – is a blend that combines grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea with stevia extract.
Add 1-2 drops to your NingXia Red daily to naturally curb appetite, reduce mindless snacking, and manage feelings of satiation – all factors in weight-management success.
• Ocotea – found in Slique Essence and as an individual oil, this essential oil helps to curb cravings.
Just add 1-2 drops to your daily NingXia Red shot, then drop under the tongue 2-3 times a day as cravings arise – that should do the trick!
It’s out of stock now as a single oil, so when it’s back GO GET IT but in the meantime you can enjoy it in Slique Essence.
• Peppermint – affects the brain’s satiety center helping curb appetite and sugar cravings. When you have the desire to overindulge on sugary treats, sniff some Peppermint or add a drop of Peppermint Vitality to a glass of water or your NingXia Red to curb the craving!
Add a drop of Slique Essence or Peppermint Vitality to 1-2 oz of NingXia Red today.
