NingXia Red Shots to Power your Day


I always know that a product is good for me if I remember to take it. And I always remember to take my NingXia Red each day. I’ve become hooked on having it as a “Red Drink”. If you’re not sure what that is, click here to find out.

But there are many other ways we can enjoy our NingXia Red. We can have it neat, we can have it diluted, and we can have it as a daily “shot” with essential oils added in to flavour it and to up its vibration to the max. I love coming up with new essential oil combos to spicy up my NingXia Red, but for today’s email I’ve borrowed some recipes and text from a newsletter by Nancy Sanderson (Gary Young’s sister), with some slight adaptations. Thanks Nancy – I love these recipes!

But first, just to some serious stuff….When it comes to flavouring our food and beverages with essential oils, we are under some different regulations per country as to what we can and can’t say. So if you’re in UK/EU, use your Plus oils to flavour your NingXia Red. If you’re in the US,  use your Vitality oils. And if you’re in AU/NZ, use any of the oils listed below (apart from Copaiba oil). These are all part of our special range of culinary essential oils (you’ll find the full list under Brand Partner Resources in your Virtual Office). 

Do you wish you could wake with so much energy you want to tackle Mount Everest before breakfast? If you are (or want to be) a natural self-starter – someone who wakes up each morning excited to take on the day, ie. an early bird not a couch potato – then here’s a tip for you. 

Ignite your inner vitality and drive with daily shots of NingXia Red! A simple sip packs a massive punch of antioxidants and superfoods which your body craves!! With a different recipe for every day of the week, you can start every morning off on the right shot, with these fabulous NingXia Red recipes….

What is NingXia Red?

A sweet and tart blend of superfruits and essential oils, NingXia Red features a blend of juices and extracts from aronia, plum, blueberry, cherry and pomegranate. However, the true star of the show comes from the inimitable NingXia wolfberry. 

Traced back to ancient Chinese traditions, this little berry is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet!

Add a Yuzu citrus infusion, with a drop each of Lemon, Orange, and Tangerine essential oils to the mix, and you have a powerful blend that supports whole-body health.

So how much NingXia Red should you drink each day? Well, a little goes a long way. Most people love to drink 60ml (2 oz) once or twice a day to experience its full benefits. And when you’re out and about, take a 60ml (2 oz) NingXia Red single with you. It’s an easy way to enjoy your daily NingXia Red.
