What Is NingXia Red And Why Is It So Amazing?

By September 16, 2019 No Comments

NingXia Red is the drink that has everything your body wants (unless your body wants stuff that’s bad for you, of course).

But really, NingXia Red is an amazing superfruit juice crafted by a company that longs to bring natural health and wellness to people around the world (Young Living).

It can help support your body and mind in so many different ways, which we will scratch the surface of below.

And it’s made of a wildly unique blend of superfruits and essential oils for an incredible flavor that you can drink so many different ways.

So let’s dig into what NingXia Red actually is so that you can decide for yourself that it’s something you need in your life!

What Is NingXia Red?

NingXia Red is an incredible juice that is powerfully packed with all kinds of nutrients and vitamins.

The main ingredient is the wolfberry (or goji berry) which is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

The wolfberry is native to the [former] NingXia region of central China. It’s also bright red (due to the high levels of beta carotene it contains). Hence the name NingXia Red.

NingXia is crafted by Young Living. In 1993, the founder was introduced to the wolfberry by scientists in China, where the berry has been used for thousands of years for its many health-supporting properties. 

Wolfberries have one of the highest concentrations of fiber and antioxidants out of any food. For NingXia Red, the entire wolfberry is used to make a puree (rather than a juice) in order to keep as many of the nutrients as possible in the final product.

To make the final product, NingXia Red, the wolfberry puree is combined with the following ingredients to make an incredibly delicious, super-concentrated juice that can be enjoyed by itself or mixed with anything else for a refreshing and healthy drink. 


NingXia Red Ingredients

NingXia Red is filled to the brim with the good stuff. These are the things you definitely want in your daily diet in one way or another. NingXia Red ingredients include:

  • Wolfberry Puree – The main ingredient and what gives NingXia it’s “red” as well as it’s high antioxidant content and unique taste. 
  • Blueberry Juice Concentrate – superfood loaded with nutrients and antioxidants.
  • Plum Juice Concentrate – filled with minerals, potassium, and antioxidants which may improve heart health, relieve constipation and boost the immune system.
  • Cherry Juice Concentrate – superfood high in antioxidants that are known as an anti-inflammatory and a natural source of melatonin.
  • Aronia Juice Concentrate – Aronia is also known as the “chokeberry.” Either way, you may not have heard of it. They grow on shrubs in North America and have a wide range of vitamins and minerals. 
  • Pomegranate Juice Concentrate – high in antioxidants and vitamin C, pomegranates can help with digestion, fight against illness and function as an anti-inflammatory.
  • Grape Seed Extract – a high amount of antioxidants that can help to protect against oxidative stress, tissue damage, and inflammation. 
  • Orange Essential Oil – can help to support and cleanse the digestive system.
  • Yuzu Essential Oil – used in Japanese culture for hundreds of years, can support respiratory health.
  • Lemon Essential Oil – cleansing, immune-boosting and supportive of circulation.
  • Tangerine Essential Oil – smells and tastes amazing!

And the following: Tartaric acid, natural blueberry flavor, pure vanilla extract, malic acid, pectin, sodium benzoate/natural stevia extract.

NingXia Products

The main way to drink NingXia is simply with the regular juice. You can order this is tall, 750 ml bottles to be stored in the fridge or you can buy individual, 2 oz packets that don’t need to stay in the fridge.

The packets are nice for taking with you to work, school or on trips. You can drink right  out of the packet (as can your toddlers with a straw!).

We typically have both bottles and packets just to ensure we always have a convenient way of drinking NingXia.

NingXia Nitro

NingXia Nitro is a little bit different from normal NingXia. This comes in small, 1 oz tubes that basically meant to be little energy shots.

The small size makes it super easy to pack with you to the gym or while you are outdoors. Use it to boost your energy, increase mental alertness and sharpen your focus. It can keep you going on those [way] longer than normal days.

It takes wolfberries and infuses the power of essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract for a small but potent nitro juice blend.


NingXia Zyng

The final NingXia product is NingXia Zyng. Zyng is basically meant to replace soda (or pop, for you midwesterners).

It’s sweetened with evaporated cane sugar and flavored with wolfberries and blackberry juice and infused with essential oils.

So while it does contain sugar, it’s ingredients are overall authentic, healthy, and minimal (compared to other ‘soda’). It’s also infused with lime and black pepper essential oils for a truly unique experience.

NingXia Red Benefits

Due to the list of ingredients above and how each ingredient contributes so many nutrients and benefits, there are a ton of reasons to drink NingXia Red and so many potential benefits to experience.

Here are a few of the biggest NingXia Red benefits:

High Levels Of Antioxidants

Just one ounce of NingXia Red has the antioxidant power of 

  • 2 Cups Blueberries
  • 3 Cups Raspberries
  • 2 Pounds Beets
  • 1 Pint Orange Juice
  • 4 Pounds Carrots

Antioxidants are some of the most important substances to fill our bodies with. The work to fight against free radicals, which are substances that promote the formation of cancer.

Clean Energy

NingXia Red is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up to fill you with clean energy that won’t mess up your ability to fall asleep at night.

Drink NingXia to finish your day strong and to boost your mood and increase motivation!

Immune Boosting

Many of the vitamins and essential oils in NingXia work to support the immune system and to keep the body healthy and strong.

We especially love drinking this in the fall and winter, when the ‘seasonal bugs’ are floating around like crazy.

Curb Sugar Cravings

When you are craving sweets or sugary drinks, drinking NingXia is the perfect way to crush that craving. Without any added sugar, this is a great way to satisfy your taste buds without giving in to the ‘bad stuff.’

NingXia Red can also work to support liver function, eye health and many other areas of our bodies and it’s natural functions!

Why Should You Really Drink NingXia Red?

Drinking NingXia Red can help our bodies run and perform better.

Think about it – when it comes to cars, they typically run better, last longer and function far more efficiently when they are filled with the proper fuel and oil. Constantly giving it the cheap stuff isn’t going to keep the car running as best as it should (or never changing the oil…)

How much more so should we consider our bodies. Our bodies need fuel to keep moving, and clean “oil” to function efficiently.

But how often do we give our bodies the cheap stuff, just enough to get by? Why don’t we plan for longevity?

NingXia Red is one way to support our bodies both now and long into the future. It’s one way to ensure we are filling ourselves with clean fuel that will keep all of the different parts and systems running the best they can for as long as they can.

It’s super hard to think about the future and do things now to benefit our lives in the future. We are such a “here and now” generation. But regarding the health of our bodies specifically, we need to do anything we can to plan for the future and consume things not just for momentary pleasure or convenience, but to ensure we can live long, happy, and healthy lives.

I believe NingXia Red is just one [powerful] way to do that.

NingXia Red Recipes

There are so many different ways to enjoy NingXia Red, which is another reason I love it so much!

You can absolutely drink it by itself. It tastes great! You typically only need to drink 2 ounces at a time, so it’s gone rather quickly if you drink it by itself.

You can pour 2 oz over a few ice cubes and try sipping slowly, or if you are in a hurry, sure, just drink it by itself.

But here are some super simple NingXia Red recipes for when you are looking for something a bit more enjoyable!


Pour 2 ounces of NingXia into a glass and top it off with a 12 oz can of flavored or unflavored sparkling water.

You can also add 1-2 drops of essential oils for added flavor and benefits. Try adding

  • Lime
  • Lemon
  • Grapefruit
  • Tangerine
  • Thieves
  • Peppermint


Add 1-2 ounces NingXia to a smoothie or smoothie bowl. You won’t really taste it, but you’ll definitely get the benefits.


Add 2 ounces NingXia to a glass and top it off with your favorite kombucha.


You can make simple and quick popsicles for the little ones (and yourself) by combining

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups NingXia Red
  • 3 drops essential oils – anything citrus-based would work great, such as citrus fresh or grapefruit!

Just mix it all together and pour into a popsicle mold and freeze. If you want easy popsicle molds without sticks or mess, check these popsicle molds out!

You can also try adding fresh fruit or orange juice for added flavor and sweetness.

Summer Coconut Refresher

Add 2 ounces NingXia to a glass of coconut water (12-24 ounces) and mix in a drop of lemon, lime and orange essential oils!

Literally the perfect summer NingXia drink.

Get Creative

There’s no limit to how you can enjoy NingXia Red. Make treats, slushies, smoothies, popsicles, mocktails, cocktails, energy drinks and more!

It mixes well with so many things. Experiment with adding different essential oils.
