Someone wrote with a question about whether NingXia Red would produce similar effects to honey, potentially causing her child to be hyperactive . . .  

Thank you for writing to enquire about the safety of NingXia Red.  It is important to note that there is no way to compare the potential effects of honey with the effects of NingXia Red.  First of all, all honey is not the same – and most of it raises the glycemic index in much the same way as sugar itself.  Sugar and most honey can have very negative effects upon children and adults alike.

NingXia Red does NOT raise the glycemic index.  In fact, many diabetics drink it and have found that it has a stabilizing effect upon blood glucose levels.

Here is a link to a short video by a pharmacist, Dr. Lindsey Elmore, on some of the properties and potential benefits of NingXia Red.
