We know how hard it is to run through life’s busy daily routines, especially when you have so many demands on your time. Between early-morning carpools, long workdays, and late-night study sessions, it’s no surprise we often feel tired, overworked, and simply drained.

While conventional energy drinks offer you a boost to help you get through the day, they’re often filled with excessive caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and artificial flavors. It’s hard to find a healthy energy drink option that delivers a boost without compromising our bodies. So when it comes to Young Living’s NingXia Zyng®, we love it for what it’s not. With this sparkling drink, you can rest easy knowing that, unlike other energy drinks or sodas, NingXia Zyng contains just the right amount of sweetness, carbonation, and pep.

How did we come up with the perfect blend of natural flavors, sweetness, and energy? Read on to check out the anatomy of Zyng and discover all the details behind this Young Living favorite!

Ningxia Zyng with Lime and Blackberries

A blast of inspiration: Why we created NingXia Zyng

The idea for NingXia Zyng started with Young Living Founder D. Gary Young. He’d often work long hours on the farm and crave something to help him cool down and feel refreshed. When he looked for healthy drinks and found only sugary sodas and high-octane energy drinks, he decided to make something new. With no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives and only 35 calories per can, Zyng is a delicious way to break free from over-caffeinated, over-processed options.

What makes Zyng zing: What goes into NingXia Zyng

What exactly goes into a can of balanced refreshment? We start with a base of carbonated water, pear juice and blackberry juice concentrate, and wolfberry puree. Then we add a splash of Black Pepper and Lime essential oils and natural sweetness from organic evaporated cane juice and stevia leaf extract. To top it all off, we finish with a little zing from white tea leaf extract to give you fresh flavors and a boost of energy.

Now you know the what and why behind Zyng, but you don’t need us to explain the how. Keep a few cans in your home or work fridge and grab one whenever you need help getting through that to-do list!
