Wolfberry puree is the main ingredient in Young Living’s amazing NingXia Red antioxidant juice. The following ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) Scale was developed by the UDSA – a U.S. government agency – working at Tufts University (Brunswick Laboratories ) in Boston, Mass., to measure the time it takes and how effective foods are in stopping the destructive effects of free radicals. As you can see in the graph below, the NingXia wolfberry far exceeds any other foods in its ability to destroy free floating radicals in the body. In case you don’t know what free floating radicals are, scientific research indicates they are the cause of many conditions and diseases such as cancer, arthritis, lupus, allergies, asthma, and so forth. I think you get the idea. A sample of Ningxia Red is in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. To learn more about this amazing wolfberry fruit watch the video of how it was obtained.
In addition to this very informative chart below NingXia wolfberry contains 22 trace minerals, 18 amino acids, 5 unsaturated fatty acids, Polysaccharides, 7 mg beta carotene which equals 180% Viamin A, Viamin B6, Vitamin B2, Vitamin E and Selenium
which is 91% RDA (recommended daily allowance). And all of that is 100 g fresh NingXia wolfberry. Young Living sells dried NingXia wolfberries.
Here is a very important note about wolfberries. You may be thinking, well I can get wolfberries anywhere. I have heard them called gogi berries. Here are some facts worth knowing. There are some great distinctions about all the many varieties of wolfberries (just like there are many varieties of tomatoes).ALL WOLFBERRIES ARE NOT EQUAL. Everyone in China knows of the distinctive region of the NingXia Province. Click here to view the video about the region. Here wolfberries grow at the foot of the Himalayas where nutrients are poured into the ground by water and glacier and is some of the richest soil in the world, hence the high nutrient content in the NingXia wolfberry.
You have to remember you get what you pay for and where you grow makes a difference. Don’t be fooled by a variety sold at the local super market. I have a short story to tell. My friend didn’t believe me about the variety business (I think there are over 20 varieties of wolfberries or sometimes called gogi berry) and so she asked me to do a taste test. She put two different wolfberries in front of me and told tell me to identify which one was the Young Living wolfberry. After trying both, it was very apparent to me which one had the better flavor, so I chose that one, and it turned out that it was of course the NingXia wolfberry and that satisfied her wanting to know and she became a believer in what I had told her. What is interesting about this story is that I don’t have a very good taster like some others, so I was a little worried not because I doubted the facts about wolfberries but I doubted my taster. So it made this test even more effective for the great difference in the NingXia wolfberries. By MBB

The following charts are a comparison of the S-ORAC (Superoxide-Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) test for the ability of a food to scavenge the most dangerous free-radical in the human body – the superoxide. These two charts represent two different testing facilities and still the NingXia RED shows similar results and out performs every juice on the chart by a huge margin. In fact in the first chart NingXia Red out performs its closest competitor by over 400%. In the second chart by Dr. Lawrence shows SOD (Superoxide Diffusing) or scavenging the superoxide free radicals by 380% of the next competitor.
Why would you use anything else but NingXia RED?
