A simple sip packs a punch with superfoods your body craves. With a different recipe for every day of the week, you can start each morning off on the right shot.


What is NingXia Red?

A sweet and tart blend of superfruits and essential oils, NingXia Red features a blend of juices and extracts from aronia, plum, blueberry, and pomegranate, but the true star of the show comes from the exotic Ningxia wolfberry. Sought after by the Ming Dynasty and traced back to ancient Chinese medicine, this little berry is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Add a few drops of Lemon+ and Orange+ essential oils to the mix and you have a powerful blend that supports general nutrition.
