Reason for the Change in NingXia Red
The cost of the NingXia wolfberries has been escalating since 1993 when Gary Young first created NingXia Red (formerly known as Berry Young Juice). In 1993 workers in NingXia province, China were paid $1.20 per day (for a 10 hour work day) to harvest the wolfberries for our NingXia Red. In 2012, the NingXia workers are paid $3.50 per hour (for a 10 hour work day that’s $35/day) to harvest our wolfberries. That’s almost a 30 times increase in the cost of labor! So in order for us to continue enjoying the benefits of NingXia Red at a reasonable price, it became necessary for Gary Young to create a new formula. Gary began looking for other longevity fruits and berries that could add to the power of Young Living’s NingXia Red and increase the benefits of the drink. He also decided to add more essential oils to the drink and change the agave to stevia so that he could lower the glycemic index of the drink.
The NEW NingXia Red Ingredients
Whole NingXia wolfberry puree
Aronia juice (Black Chokecherry juice)
Essential oil blend of Grape see extract, Orange, Lemon, Tangerine and Yuzu oils.
(Raspberry and Apricot juices and agave have been taken out.)
Benefits of the New NingXia Red Power Juice
Cherry, plum and aronia juices all add to the antioxidant power of the NingXia wolfberries in NingXia Red. This increases the S-ORAC score of NingXia Red 30%.
The S-ORAC score measures a drink’s ability to neutralize the dangerous superoxide free radical by increasing superoxide dismutase. Superoxide is the most destructive free radical in the body. Elevated superoxide has been linked to cancer, asthma, heart disease and other serious conditions.
Sweet Cherry Juice – Prunus Avium
Antioxidant Support – Cherries are a rich source of flavonoids, natural compounds that are most widely recognized for their potent antioxidant activity. In fact, anthocyanins flavonoids isolated from cherries have been shown to possess antioxidant capabilities superior to vitamin E. This powerful free radical scavenging capacity has broad ranging health implications for the immune, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal systems. Additionally, cherries have also been shown to support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response.
Joint Support and Uric acid control - By disarming free radicals, which can damage healthy cells, flavonoids contribute to the integrity of capillaries, collagen structures, eyes, joints, and arteries. Research has shown that anthyocyanins and cyanidin flavonoids present in cherry fruit can positively impact joint health.
Beneficial for Gout – Uric acid levels are high in people who have gout. A recent study found that consumption of sweet cherries promotes optimal pH balance by maintaining healthy uric acid levels, revealing yet another way in which cherries contribute to joint health. Gout starts in the liver and cherry juice also helps cleanse the liver.
Cardiovascular Support - One of the most exciting new findings regarding cherry fruit consumption is its potential support in the area of cardiovascular health.
Health Insulin Production – Researchers recently found that anthocyanins naturally present in sweet cherries support healthy insulin production in pancreatic cells. Cherry consumption may, therefore, help maintain healthy insulin and blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.
Sleep Support - A recent study, the first to reveal that melatonin can be naturally present in food sources, found that both sweet and tart cherries contain high levels of melatonin. While additional trials are needed to validate cherry fruit as an effective sleep enhancer, this study implies yet another potential health benefit of cherry consumption.
Plum Juice – Prunus Domestica
Osteoporosis Prevention – Several studies have demonstrated that dried plums, or prunes, which contain high amounts of polyphenols, can restore bone mass and structure.
In a 3-month study involving 58 postmenopausal women, dried plums significantly increased serum levels of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BSAP) activity. Higher levels of both serum IGF-I and BSAP are associated with greater rates of bone formation. Although further studies are desirable, these results suggest that dried plums may have beneficial effects on bone mineral density. Another study concluded that dried plum polyphenols enhance osteoblast (bone formation) activity.
Prunes are a good source of boron, which is believed to play a role in prevention of osteoporosis.
Cholesterol Reduction – Phenolic compounds in prunes had been found to inhibit human LDL oxidation in vitro
Cardiovascular Disease Prevention – High potassium content of prunes (745 mg/100 g) is beneficial for cardiovascular health.
Cancer Prevention – According to the American Cancer Society, foods high in fiber and vitamin A may offer some protection against cancers of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts as well as cancers induced by chemicals.
Researchers have found that the phytonutrients in plums inhibited in vitro breast cancer growth without adversely affecting normal cell growth.
Natural Laxative – Plums and prunes are both effective laxatives, with prunes being the more effective of the two. The laxative action of both prune and prune juice could be explained by their high sorbitol content. Some food chemists suggest that what makes the prune such an effective laxative is not its fiber but another constituent, an unidentified derivative of the organic chemical isatin.
Better Digestion – Increases your own production of enzymes naturally.
Glycemic Index of Plums – In a study to determine the estimated glycemic index of various foods, it was concluded that plums have a low glycemic index (low sugar level).

Yuzu Oil (Japanese Citron) – Citrus Juno
Yellow to orange skinned citrus, usually medium sized, with highly fragrant rind and flesh. Flavor is acidic and tart. The fruit is relatively rare, and highly prized.
Roughly the size of a tangerine, sour tasting, and bright yellow in color, yuzu is still a newcomer in the U.S. Specialty shops and Asian groceries often carry it in the form of juices, vinegars, powders, and pastes that can be drizzled on foods, or slipped into recipes to add flavor and a nutritional boost to fish, vegetables, and pastas.
Studies conducted over the past few years by the Department of Food and Nutrition at the Research Institute of Human Ecology, Seoul National University, have shown yuzu to be high in antioxidants and vitamin C, with the largest concentration of nutrients contained in the fruit’s tangy skin. Because vitamin C fuels collagen production, yuzu is finding its way out of the kitchen and into beauty products.
Kochi Medical School in Japan investigated in vitro anti-inflammatory effects of limonene from yuzu peel on human eosinophilic leukemia HL-60 clone 15 cells. These results suggest that limonene may have potential anti-inflammatory efficacy for the treatment of bronchial asthma by inhibiting cytokines, (proteins liberatd from lymphatic cells), ROS production (chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen), and inactivating eosinophil migration (very small highly reactive molecules).
NingXia Wolfberry Puree, Pomegranate Juice, Blueberry Juice
These fruits continue to give us the same amazing health benefits as always. You can learn more about their benefits at www.ningxiared.com. You can also read the Ebook called NingXia Red, Facts and Research by Judy DeLaRosa for more information about these ingredients.
New Sweetener in NingXia Red
Stevia extract has replaced Blue Agave as a sweetener for several reasons. It is better for diabetics because it has a lower glycemic index.
Also, there is a lot of bad publicly about agave. This is partially due to the fact that a lot of agave that is now on the market is being extended with corn syrup to increase the profits. So when this adulterated agave is tested for health benefits it gets a bad report.
Gary wanted to use Yacon Syrup but it is not approved for internal consumption in Europe, Australia and Japan. If Yacon Syrup was used in the US version, it would be too expensive to produce another version for these foreign markets.
Stevia has a lot of health benefits.
The new NingXia Red formula has a pH level o 3.7. The old formula had a pH level of 3. NingXia Red is less stable if it becomes too alkaline. The acid helps stabilize the drink so it doesn’t spoil.
If you have a very acidic body NingXia Red will taste more acidic to you. Use Alkalime to improve your pH level.
Because NingXia Red is a living, enzyme-rich super food, it will spoil quickly if it is not stabilized. Young Living does NOT use synthetic stabilizers. It uses only natural stabilizers – tartaric acid, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate.
They are all used in a very, very small amount. Gary chose tartaric acid over malic acid because it is better for you and less acidic.
Sodium benzoate is naturally occurring in most fruits and vegetables that we eat. Young Living uses a natural mineral source of sodium benzoate in NingXia Red. The confusion arises in people’s minds because sodium benzoate is also produced synthetically and this type is bad for people to consume. Just like synthetic essential oils are very different than Young living oils, synthetic sodium benzoate is very different than naturally derived sodium benzoate.
The old formula had a glycemic index of 19. The new formula has a glycemic index of 14. It is better for pre diabetics, people with hypoglycemic and diabetics.
