Calling all athletes, active people, or anyone wanting to live a healthy life…..

For the past month, I have been drinking NingXIa Red made by Young Living.  Ningxia Red is an amazing antioxidant “juice” blend made of the wolfberry (goji) superfruit and several essential oils.  It is said to be one of the most powerful blends around, and is whole-body nutrient infusion.  I started drinking it because I wanted to try something to help boost my energy level, as well as better my health. I gave myself a 30 day challenge.  I HAD to share this experience!  As someone who is an active person wanting to live a healthy life, I love that Ningxia Red can have such a powerful punch to boost my energy and support my body without any harmful, synthetic chemicals or unnatural ingredients! For all of you out there  drinking those scary energy drinks, give this one a test! Take the Ningxia Red challenge! (more…)
