What’s all the hype about Ningxia Red?
Do you guys know about “Blue Zones”? This term refers to geographic areas of the world in which people have low rates of disease and live longer than anywhere else ! Guess what researchers have found as one of the similar factors of these areas….ANTIOXIDANTS! These long living people eat diets full of whole plant foods which are full of antioxidants!
Antioxidants are nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, that help fight off the damaging effects of free radicals. The body experiences a natural phenomenon called oxidation every day, which can produce harmful byproducts called free radicals. If left uncontrolled, these free radicals can damage cells, much like the chemical reaction that takes place when a half-eaten apple turns brown. Free radical damage can be accelerated by pollution, stress, toxins, smoking, and alcohol.⠀⠀
Why drink Ningxia Red?Um hello antioxidants! It is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, it has 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E. Drink 2 oz of this a day and you are taking in the equivalent of antioxidants of 1600 blueberries, 46,000 almonds, and 200 oranges and apples.
I will be honest. It took me 6 months finally try this from my starter kit .
1) I didn’t need it and
2)it would probably taste nasty.
Turns out I did need it and it tastes amazing!
