Supporting Energy With Ningxia Red




Welcome To Class!

Do you ever feel like despite your best efforts you just can't do it? You can't keep track of everyone's schedules, needs, to-dos, the latest news and information, the 10 steps to true success, the relationships, AND make sure everyone has a balanced diet full of nutrients?

I can't either. I can't do it all. I can't make it all happen. 

Do we give up? Hope that even without proper nourishment we do okay? Do we settle for a lethargic survival that comes when our bodies aren't fueled correctly?

I don't think so. I think we work smarter, not harder. We find a tool that will work for us and with us. 

My name is Patti Friday. I’m a mom of 4 grown kids and Bubby to 7 - An entrepreneur, and a work from home businesswoman blessed with a network marketing business pursuing wellness and freedom in every area of my life. It is a wild ride, a beautiful life, and a crazy season. I need all the help I can get as a busy woman to simplify and make the best choices for myself and my family!

That's why we're here today/tonight. So you can hear my most convenient, easy tip for making sure all of us get some basic foundational needs met in our health. 

CLASS NOTES:

Read, comment, and share with others who might benefit from the information being shared.

Our community is all about education and helping other families to take baby steps toward better wellness every day! We have no judgment or perfect answers. No one size fits all treatment. We're just a bunch of people doing the best we can and we've found some things that work for us. And we share what we love. 

So what do you think? Are you ready to talk about options? Talk to me. What is one major hurdle for you in getting the nutrition you or your family needs?




Health Goals

What are your health goals right now? For you, for your family, for your community? Often we don't really stop to think about what we want which means that we're directionless and will never arrive at our destination. 

I want my family to have energy and vitality so that we can live the fullest, richest lives possible and be the most effective in our calling. We have a relatively short time here on this earth to do important, eternal work. I don't want that hindered by exhaustion and weakness. We have things to do! I am committed to providing my family with tools to support our health.

Enter Ningxia Red. We drink this because we can feel and see the difference it makes in our health. It's one of the few things we've done with absolute consistency because it matters that much to us.

Studies have shown us that adding extracted isolated vitamins to the diet may not be the answer for trying to reduce disease risk or combat illnesses. There are dangers to taking in extreme amounts of something that was originally designed to enter our body along with other vitamins and nutrients. Unfortunately, many have used this to create fear around things that are important to our health.

However, opposite results are obtained when we consume whole foods rather than single vitamins. Studies show that eating nutrient-rich foods leads to healthier bodies and few will argue with that! One reason is that there are many “non-nutritive” phytochemicals there along with the vitamins. The master design of a Creator who completely understands our needs didn’t allow Vitamin A to grow in the ground, but He did give us a carrot rich in beta-carotene, ALONG with other nutrients we would need, which our body can convert into Vitamin A, giving us many health benefits we need for healthy skin and mucous membranes, our immune system, and good eye health and vision.

Ningxia Red is a prime example of a whole-food supplement. Through it we have the opportunity to flood our bodies with nutrition as we were designed to assimilate it. Through the entire wolfberry we receive balanced amounts of different nutritional building blocks. Add them all together and we have a perfect, convenient way to be sure we're getting what our bodies need each day!

How important is it to you to fortify your health? Can you put a price on that?



What is NingxiaRed?

Ningxia Red is a one-of-a-kind essential oil-infused beverage - a powerhouse of highly absorbable nutrition that is great for adults and children!

NingXia Red contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Its health benefits include support from head to toe, via a whole body nutrient infusion. The special ingredient is an organic puree of the wolfberry (or goji berry) from the Ningxia province of China. NingXia wolfberries have been cherished for centuries for their health, energy, and longevity benefits. Whole Ningxia wolfberries and other nutrient-dense fruit juices make NingXia Red the perfect choice for optimizing wellness and stepping up to a whole new level of health.

Check out these statistics - they’re truly mind-blowing: 

One ounce of Ningxia Red has the antioxidant power of:
-4 pounds carrots
-2 quarts carrot juice
-8 oranges
-1 pint orange juice
-2 pounds beets
-2 cups beet juice
-3 cups raspberries
-2 cups blueberries

One serving - 2 ounces - contains:
-100 g. Whole, Fresh Ningxia Wolfberries
-230 g. Blueberries
-1 cup Aronia Berries
-4 Pomegranates
-2 Plums
-Orange, Lemon, Tangerine
& Yuzu Essential Oils

Do you have trouble getting in all the nutrition you need daily? What are some favorite nutrient-dense foods at your house?



The Ningxia Wolfberry

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.

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!



Ningxia Spritzer Recipe

Why are we so passionate about Ningxia Red? I know it may seem kind of silly. We're really not crazed fans or blind loyalists. Each of us has a story. A reason we made this investment in our families. A reason we're committed to oils and to this supplement as a lifestyle. It's not a fad, not a quick thing. I drink it daily. There is a tiny list of things I do every day - like brushing my teeth and saying "I love you" to my family, so you can imagine the priority I place on this. 

So, I'm about to make a confession. I'm completely addicted to Ningxia and sparkling water, club soda, or Ningxia Zyng over tons of ice. The fizz and bitterness with the Ningxia makes me so happy. Plus, I've always been an ice addict. And that drop of orange oil? Yum.

Okay, so maybe saying I wasn’t a crazed fan was a little bit untrue. But…

Did you know???
The Ningxia wolfberry is a rich vegetarian source of zinc, a mineral critical for healthy immunity. The dried berry (Ningxia Red uses the whole berry puree) has five times as much zinc as Brussels sprouts and more zinc than raw eggs. Zinc deficiency is directly tied to immune deficits in the body. 

It’s so nice to LOVE drinking something that is so beneficial for me!

Ningxia Spritzer
2 oz. Ningxia Red
2 oz. club soda
1 drop orange oil
Make sure you pour it in a fun glass!!!

Have you tried this? Which oil would you add? Do you have fun recipes you use to make your Ningxia Red special?



Emotional Spotlight - Citrus Oils & Ningxia

Did you know that essential oils have a unique ability to communicate with the command central of your brain through their aromatic benefits? For generations communities, grandmothers, doctors, and everyone in between have believed in the ability of lavender to calm, peppermint to wake up, or frankincense for prayer and deep thought. The citrus oils in our Ningxia Red are no different? Who wants a tool to work through frustration and irritability??? I DO!!!!!

Written by: Carissa Sherman......
Irritated. Frustrated. A little angry. These feelings came over me like a cloud in the middle of the afternoon recently, so I grabbed some Tangerine oil and inhaled it with deep breaths. Relief.

The aroma of citrus can bring calm and a sense of refreshing when the work day is getting long, or when kids who skipped naps are terrorizing the other kids, or when someone says something that just hits *that* button. 

To target what you have going on specifically, try:
Lemon: Frustration
Tangerine: Irritability
Orange: Anxious agitation, jitters, jumpiness (this is when you feel energized/hyper in a BAD way, like you can’t control your emotions)

Citrus oils to the rescue! You may need to repeat a couple of times if the feelings pop back up, and I like to have a drop or two in my water for added benefits.

And guess what? Each of these oils is in NingXia Red! So pop open a packet or pour some for yourself, and if you really want to get crazy, add an extra drop of each of these oils!

How do essential oils help you with your emotions? Do you love the support of citrus oils for uplifting your mood? Which is your favorite?



Antioxidants

Do you know about antioxidants? That word gets thrown around a lot as we discuss wellness, but what does it really mean?

Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. Some of the most delicate cells of the body are the reproductive cells, which are extremely vulnerable to oxidative damage. So you can only imagine the massive importance of an antioxidant-rich diet for fertility and the health of our future children and grandchildren.

“A January 2005 Stanford University study found that people with the weakest ability to scavenge superoxide free radicals lived over 35% shorter lives than controls. A critical enzyme in the body known as superoxide dismutase (SOD) is essential to mopping up and deactivating superoxide. When this enzyme is deficient life expectancy drops dramatically.”
Excerpt from Ningxia Wolfberry: The Ultimate Superfood by Gary Young, Ronald Lawrence, & Marc Schreuder

Antioxidant power is measured through the ORAC system. In 2000 the Ningxia wolfberry was tested at the Brunswick Laboratories in Massachusetts at the only lab in the world at that time using the Tufts University-developed ORAC protocol. 

“The results were astonishing. According to the ORAC results, dried Ningxia wolfberries had five times the antioxidant power of prunes, 10 times the antioxidant power of oranges, 12 times the antioxidant power of raisins, and 55 times the antioxidant power of cauliflower. In fact, according to the published ORAC data, the dried Ningxia wolfberry had the highest known ORAC score for any whole food.”
Excerpt from Ningxia Wolfberry: The Ultimate Superfood by Gary Young, Ronald Lawrence, & Marc Schreuder

Sounds a bit like a fountain of youth, right? I don’t know about you, but a drink of something delicious or 55 times more cauliflower sounds like a no brainer to me. 


What are some favorite ways you like to get antioxidants into your diet?



Ningxia Red, Pregnancy, Nursing & Kids

A very common question we're asked is if Ningxia Red is safe during pregnancy? As Lindsey Elmore, Young Living's resident pharmacist, says, only you can make that decision. But here's my take - Ningxia Red is food. It is made of fruits and plants. I feel really good about that. Plus antioxidants are crucial for reproductive health, cleaning out our system so we can focus on growing that sweet life.

I can't help but wish that I could have experienced this energy and vitality with my pregnancies! Many midwives recommend it highly and encourage clients to drink it.

We love the benefits of giving Ningxia Red to our kiddos. Think about how difficult it can be to get all the veggies and nutrition needed into their little bodies. Having an option they ask for is priceless. Even children who are choosy about textures and struggle with tastes often love this drink or at least having it added to smoothies or through one of the recipes below. 


You might not think of nutrition as an emotional tool, but it is powerful! When you're feeling grumpy and out of sorts, trying filling your body (or your child's) with something that truly feeds it! Skip the sugary snacks and drinks that will only lead to a worse crash in a few hours. So much emotional upheaval is caused by blood sugar dropping which is exaggerated in diets high in sugar and grains. Giving our children the Ningxia wolfberry, studied for its powerful ability to promote healthy blood sugar levels through its low glycemic index, is one way we can have happy kids in our homes!




Ningxia Popsicles
1 cup water
2 cups Ningxia Red
3 drops Citrus Fresh Vitality Oil
Freeze in popsicle molds until solid!

Ningxia Gummies 
Another super fun option and what kid doesn’t love a great gummy!
https://vimeo.com/159826245

Ingredients
1 cup NingXia Red
1 1/2 teaspoons agar agar powder (gelatin alternative)
4 teaspoons honey
3 drops Grapefruit Vitality essential oil
3 drops Lime Vitality essential oil
Silicon molds
Instructions
Combine the NingXia Red, agar agar powder, and honey in a saucepan. Mix with a metal spoon until fully dissolved and heat on medium-high.
Once boiling, remove from heat immediately and stir in the essential oils. Taste for sweetness. The mixture should be almost too sweet, since the flavors will mellow during cooling.
Pour the mixture into silicone molds.
Let your molds cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour until set.
Keep leftovers in the fridge or a cool place.
Enjoy!

What are your tips for Ningxia and kids? Do you make popsicles, gummies, or maybe slushies or snowcones? For a simple slushie, you can even just freeze the 2 oz. packets!



Ningxia vs. Caffeine

Don't hate me. I'm coming after your coffee drinks. I’m not saying we can’t ever have treats and make exceptions. I do that right along with you. I am saying that using coffee drinks as your pick me up on any kind of a regular basis is expensive both in terms of your wallet and your health. I went ahead and added La Croix with the Ningxia just so we were comparing a big, tall, refreshing drink vs. a shot with the coffee drink.

Vanilla Frappuccino: 
14g fat
69g sugar
95mg caffeine

Iced Caramel Macchiato:
7g fat
34g sugar
150mg caffeine 

Ningxia Red w/1 can La Croix/sparkling water:
0g fat
2g sugar (from fruits, none added)
0mg caffeine

Thousands of North Americans daily pour money into coffee that gives them a momentary boost and crash with no lasting benefits. In fact, there are many detrimental health factors to these drinks. Chemicals, sweeteners, and low quality dairy and dairy substitutes fill your body with things it needs to be rid of vs. flooding it with nutrition. The cost is not only short term but also long term with your health.

Energy is fabulous. But falsely boosting energy can result in crashing down so hard that we’re rendered useless unless we boost again. This creates addiction and one of the most common in our society is an addiction to caffeine. While we know it can affect blood pressure, sleep, and productivity, it also has a huge impact on our emotional stability.

“Drinking caffeine triggers the release of adrenaline. Adrenaline is the source of the “fight or flight” response, a survival mechanism that forces you to stand up and 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. This is great when a bear is chasing you, but not so great when you’re responding to a curt email. When caffeine puts your brain and body into this hyper-aroused state, your emotions overrun your behavior.

Irritability and anxiety are the most commonly seen emotional effects of caffeine, but caffeine enables all of your emotions to take charge.

The negative effects of a caffeine-generated adrenaline surge are not just behavioral. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University found that large doses of caffeine raise blood pressure, stimulate the heart, and produce rapid shallow breathing, which readers of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 know deprives the brain of the oxygen needed to keep your thinking calm and rational.”
Caffeine: The Silent Killer of Success by Travis Bradberry

While smaller amounts or irregular intake of caffeine is unlikely to have adverse effects, many of us are in a state of total dependency. I love my iced tea just like many people love their coffee and I have to be very careful to watch for these two problems:
Not to let my intake replace my needed water intake. It can be so easy to down other drinks and realize at the end of the day that we’ve had none of the water we desperately need.
To very carefully watch my dependency on the caffeine. Can I go without it easily? Do I notice any adverse effects like headaches or sluggishness when I go a while without it? These are signs that I need to step back and regroup to avoid problems. 

One great way to slowly ease off of caffeine is with Ningxia Nitro and Ningxia Zyng, both designed with very small amounts of naturally occurring caffeine from green or white tea, combined with other ingredients to help with physical and cognitive function. The perfect pairing with your Ningxia Red, these are a great way to wean off of drinks loaded with high amounts of sugar, excessive caffeine, and many other harmful ingredients. We love these as treats or on particularly arduous days and will often split a can of Ningxia Zyng three or four ways so we’re each just getting a taste of something refreshing with a little boost of oomph to keep moving. We rely mainly on Ningxia and other forms of nutrition for our baseline energy.

Love your body enough to make the switch. Love your kids by showing them different habits for increasing energy. It is worth the change!!! I can tell you that I see the difference in my energy levels and my body craves that feeling of being full of what it needs for the day ahead!

Do you feel full of energy and ready to tackle your day each morning? Are you ready to make a change and feel more like the active and productive person you want to be?
