WHY NingXia Red is the best thing to fuel your body!!
You guys, I genuinely want every single one of you to be drinking this goodness.
Here is a video from one SUPER SMART human, Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, sharing 4 reasons NingXia is the best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIEJ5ZViw1A&feature=youtu.be
And here are the notes for ya ❤
Four reasons why NingXia Red is so incredible.
1. "Macro" nutrient supplement. Micro Nutrition is where a nutritionist might take a certain supplement out of an apple to isolate it get the benefits from it. Macro Nutrition is where they look at the apple as a WHOLE because our bodies were designed perfectly and we benefit from all of it. A great example of why taking things out of the way they were created is water. Water is made up simply of hydrogen and oxygen. Say there is a fire in the room and you pour water on it. It goes out. Because that's what water does to fire. Yes? So, say you mess around with the water and take the oxygen out and throw that on the fire. Boom. Explosion. No bueno. NingXia Red is a Macro nutrient supplement, in other words, a WHOLE food supplement. It delivers a ton of nutrition because the whole fruit has been added.
2. It's liquid. Why is that important and beneficial? Most of us have a digestive system that is not functioning well. Because of that, it would be hard for our bodies to break down and absorb these nutrients if they weren't liquid. This is why juicing and smoothies are so beneficial!
3. Antioxidants. NingXia Red is made up of wolfberries, blueberries, cherries, pomegranates, and aronia juice blend. So, if you look up the ORAC value (a measuring value for antioxidants in foods and drinks) of this, it's 1500 per ounce. The S-ORAC value for NingXia Red is 363 per ounce. That happens to be the HIGHEST value of any product like NingXia Red that is on the market. What does that mean to us? Immune support. Major major immune support.
Why is this so important for our bodies? Let's look at a how a car works. Every morning, when you start your car, does exhaust come out of the tailpipe? Yep. And is that normal for that engine? Yep. That exhaust is a normal byproduct of healthy function in that engine. Here's the thing though, even though that exhaust is normal, if you cap the tailpipe then it chokes the engine and it will die. Our bodies are the same! The "exhaust" in our bodies are called free radicals. So on just a normal day, our bodies create BILLIONS of free radicals. If we don't get enough antioxidants in our daily diet (let's face it, we probs aren't), then those free radicals aren't going anywhere. An antioxidant helps our immunity to work better which in turn keeps us above the wellness line.
4. Essential Oils. Duh. Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine. These oils help support our digestion and blood sugar and circulation and immunity and the neurological system and normal body detox.
So, what about the Sodium Benzoate in NingXia Red? Sodium Benzoate is a preservative and in America there HAS to be a certain amount of a preservative in a liquid product to be able to legally put it on the shelf. So, Young Living is awesome and the Sodium Benzoate that they use is one that is NATURALLY OCCURING in cranberries and other fruits. There is no synthetic chemical in NingXia and the amount of the naturally occuring Sodium Benzoate is very small.
What's not to love?!

If you've started your search into essential oils, chances are you've seen charts that look something like this...
These are VitaFlex point charts. WHAAAA???
You've never heard of VitaFlex?! That's alright! The video posted below should help clear things up for you!
In short, VitaFlex stands for "vitality through the reflexes." The body has a complex system of reflexes and nerve channels that would be great to get familiar with! But since most of us don't have time, let me just sum up the process for you...
You can use the body's reflex system and nerve channels to help relieve all sorts of ailments, such as congestion, migraines, etc. The history of this process dates WAAAAAYYYY back to Tibet, thousands of years ago, and actually BEFORE the beginning of acupuncture.
The VitaFlex technique takes advantage of the body's complete network of nerves and reflexes that travel all throughout your body, connecting and stimulating every single organ and every bodily system. When you perform the VitaFlex technique, you produce an electrical charge that is sent through the body's reflex and nervous channels until it runs into a blockage of some kind -- this could be toxins or damaged cells.
The electrical charge then works to break down this blockage and bring healing.
When combined with Essential Oils, this technique's effectiveness is amplified a TON and can work more efficiently to support whatever specific bodily function you desire.
Check out this video to get a demo on HOW to perform this technique as well as an explaination of the charts! You'll get a good laugh in, too!

I am a stay-at-home-mother of 6, ages 7, 6, 5, 3, almost 2, and 3 months. We live on a good chunk of land out in the country with our cows, our chickens, cats, dogs, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents! My husband is a full-time fireman. We homeschool and are working towards our life goal of homesteading 100% of the time.
Our family has been using essential oils for over 8 years now! They've been an amazing part of our Whole Health Journey and I wanted to share with you how we got started, and why we are now with Young Living.
We had our first child 7 1/2 years ago. While pregnant, we started searching for a pediatrician that would work well for our family. We met with several popular and highly recommended clinics in our local area. We were young parents (21 and 22 years old) and didn't know a whole lot about anything! I had one particular thing that I was hesitant about allowing to be done to my daughter. Just one.
While touring and interviewing with the most highly recommended pediatrics clinic on our list, we were suddenly blind sided by the doctors at the end of our meeting. We were told that we had to sign an agreement to do every thing the physician recommended and that the state recommended in regard to our daughter or be dismissed from their practice! We tried to say, "but what if...?" and "we could sign a refusal form..." but to no avail.
We walked out of that clinic that day and never went back. It wasn't about the specific required treatment to us then; it was about Parental Rights. We were being refused our parental rights to our child.
After I got over my initial response of anger, I decided it was time! It was time to do my research, learn for myself all the ins and outs of WHY we made the medical decisions we did. I was done taking people's word for it. I have God-given rights as the parent of my child and I knew I needed to have the proper information to fulfill that responsibility to the best of my ability!
That quickly led me to essential oils. I found that they could be used to support our WHOLE health, not just one aspect. I discovered that they were reliable and effective! I figured out that they were much cheaper in helping keep my family well than treatment of illness would be if we were to live a lifestyle that promoted UNhealth.
I began my essential oil journey with a company NOT Young Living. I spent years with this other company and LOVED my oils! I learned so much about how they worked, what I liked about them, how to use them most effectively for me and my family.
After almost 6 years, I decided that I wanted more. I wanted a wider range of options when it came to oils and healthy living products. Our family has grown so much in our pursuit of whole health! We've learned so many wonderful things! It's an ever-growing subject, though. There's always more information out there. More subjects to explore.
Young Living has been a great source that has allowed me to expand my Whole Health Journey to something beyond my original pursuit of little changes here and there. We've jumped into this thing head first and are so excited about making major changes in our lives that will change the direction of our family's health as a whole and benefit so many others! The fact that YL has hundreds of oils and oil blends was a HUGE attraction! As well as all of the amazing home products like home cleaners, laundry detergents, dish care, bath products, make-up (what?!?! A post for another day...), a baby care line, a kids care line, dietary and nutritional supplements, and more! And new things coming all the time! Young Living has figured out that our whole health doesn't stop with topical application and diffusion of essential oils! There's so much more!
Some of the changes our family has made/is making slowly over the past several years:
*all organic/non-GMO in our diet (with some cheats, y'all, we aren't perfect! ...everything in moderation, right?!)
*chemical-free, non-toxic cleaning products
*all natural and 100% pure support for our health and wellness
*and the changes keep coming...!
Of course, these things have had an effect on our budget. But after so much research, we've decided that our health and wellness is of top priority to us! (Directly under our spiritual walk with our Savior, of course!) We want the best for our children, and we've come to the conclusion that health-wise, this is it! Keep learning, keep growing, keep changing for the better! So the financial side is: we've had to rearrange some of our monetary priorities to be able to afford some of this stuff (all organic food in a single-income home?! $$$$ YIKES!) but we truly believe it will be worth the sacrifice.
We can't always change everything all at once, either! It is expensive! We live off of a fireman's income. We have to work things in when we can afford them! But I'm attempting to "ditch-and-switch" one item every month until I am satisfied that all the items in our home are working FOR our Whole Body Health instead of AGAINST it.
Young Living is a HUGE part of this transformation. Because of their seed-to-seal promise and their history of faithfulness and honesty, I feel confident placing my trust in them for the products my family needs.
If you have any questions about how I made the switch to pursuing Whole Health or about Young Living, please comment below! I'd love to hear from you and help you any way I can on your Whole Health Journey!
