Ningxia Red + Your Freezer = Ahhhhhhh!

Here in the desert it’s already getting hot.  It’s still only April but we have already hit the 100 degree mark.  I know – ugh!  It’s probably not that hot where you live (lucky, lucky you!)  but let’s face it – summer is coming.   So here is a summer tip for you.  My friend, Melissa, turned me onto this last summer.  I’ll let you decide if this post is early or late!

One thing I really like about my kids school is that they do get out for recess and breaks a couple of times during the day.  Which is great because I think kids need that and our old school in Brooklyn did not let them out as much.  Problem is somedays it is really, really  hot.  Enter Ningxia Red packs.  I love these handy, dandy packs for their lunch boxes.  It’s a great way to get a high antioxident whole fruit juice into their diet.  It’s nutrient dense and low in sugar.  Hurrah!  Once the heat arrives I throw the packs in the freezer and whamo, bamo instant frozen slushie fruity treat!  Thanks Melissa – so genius!

Let Them Try To Guess Your Age.

We all know that if we want to delay the aging process we should eat healthy meals, exercise, limit sweets, get plenty of rest and drink lots of water everyday….yada, yada, yada.  Of course there are those days, sometimes more often than not, when we don’t do some of those things and then there are those days when we don’t do any of those things.   Here are a few simple tips about some key ingredients to add to your lifestyle to help you put off adding a few new wrinkles and to give you an extra boost in staying healthy and feeling great.

Antioxidants

What are they?   Vitamins, minerals and enzymes, that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals.  Nutrients, like vitamins A, C and E,  from foods and enzymes like catalase, superoxide dismutase.

What do they do? They inhibit oxidation in our bodies.  Oxidation can produce free radicals.  Free radicals can damage cells.  Damaged cells can lead to aging, cancer, heart disease and diabetes.  Antioxidants can also reduce inflammation (which can lead to many other diseases)  and may help keep the skin supple and bright.  Supple & bright!

Natural sources: Spicescloves, cinnamon, oregano.  Fruits – wolfberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pomegranates.  Vegetables – spinach, kale, red cabbage, red beets, brussels sprouts.  Dry Fruits – apricots, raisins, prunes.  Nuts and Seeds – peanuts, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts.

YL Products to try: Ningxia Red!  Ningxia Red is packed with antioxidants and contains the whole fruit purée of the Ningxia wolfberry and a powerful juice blend of blueberries, raspberries, apricots & pomegranates. Packs 180 mg Vitamin C per 1 oz serving!  NR supports immune function, liver function, eye health (my eyesight improved after drinking one bottle over 5 days).  My husband and I find that we have increased energy and it helps to reduce sugar cravings.  Click here for more Ningxia Red product info. You can also purchase dried Ningxia Wolfberries.  These are wonderful to add to salads, oatmeal, baked goods or any other way you would like to get an extra dose of antioxidants.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

What are they?  Essential unsaturated fatty acids.  Our bodies need these good fats to function normally and to stay healthy.  We do not make these fatty acids so we must get them from our diet.

What do they do?  Omega-3s are known to reduce inflammation; support heart health; reduce stiffness & joint pain, like in Rheumatoid Arthritis; supports heathy brain function; and provides a healthy glow to skin.  Healthy glow!

Natural sources:  Fish like anchovies, mackerel, salmon (wild has more omega-3s than farmed), and tuna are high in DHA and EPA.  ALA can be found in flax, walnuts and olive oil.  Ideally, you want to have a combination of all 3 types of fatty acids in your diet. 

YL Products to try:  Omega Blue is a great source of DHA, EPA and ALA.  Omega Blue is pure fish oil that is free of PCBs and dioxins.  Young Living is the only company that adds an essential oil blend to enhance the stability of the fish oil and to provide other benefits.  Blue chamomile & myrrh support a healthy inflammatory response, lemongrass oil provides cardiovascular protection and supports healthy cholesterol levels and clove and myrrh are added for extra antioxidant benefits.  See the link for more information on Omega Blue.

Resveratrol

What is it?  A natural phenol that is found in the skin of red grapes and other plants.

What does it do?  Studies are now being done on the benefits of resveratrol.  Many believe, and Dr. Oz is among them, that resveratrol may inhibit cancer; increase longevity; enhance energy; prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease.  Resveratrol also helps to fight environmental toxins that can cause wrinkles.  Wrinkles!

Natural sources:  Peanuts and peanut butter, red grapes, red wine, red grape juice, cranberry juice. 

YL Products to try:  True Source is a multivitamin that is packed with super food powders and whole food vitamins and minerals.  It is unlike any other multivitamin on the market.  In addition to a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals that you would want in a multivitamin supplement, True Source also contains resveratrol, wolfberries, and MSM.  Each packet contains 3 vitamins, one purple, one green, and one yellow.  You can take them all at once or through out the day.  Here is the link for more information on True Source.

Many people reach for a coffee and a cookie or an energy drink to give them an afternoon boost.  But what if you didn’t need a boost?  What if you felt good all day long AND your skin looked better as well?  I just read this quote from Dr. Oz today "Glowing skin isn’t only genetic.  Healthy choices count just as much." For $3.50 a day you can start making some healthy choices that will support you on the inside and the outside.  A much better deal than a a double caff-no foam-carmel-latte,  don’tcha think?  Even if you used these products every other day you would be much better off than not using them at all.  

Ready to feel better, look better and start giving your body nutrients and supplements that will improve your wellbeing?  Oh, good!  See my "How to Order Young Living Oils" page or just go here.

New Promotion: NingXia Red singles, buy 2 get 1 free!

In our last order I decided to try the NingXia Red singles.  I was surprised at how handy they are and how often we used them.  They are perfect to put in the kids lunch boxes so they get an extra antioxidant boost midday.  I also take one with me to the gym.  My brother-in-law (Hi, Steve!), who is a bit of a fitness guru, has told me that after a workout your body is primed to absorb and benefit from all the fabulous nutrients that NR has to offer.   My husband takes them to the office and gets a mid-afternoon pick me up.  Here are the details of the promotion.
