Toss that Antioxidant Supplement... Drink Your Shot of NingXia Red, the World's
Most Powerful Antioxidant Juice
Always at the forefront of scientific research, Young Living commissioned the first
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test done on dried Ningxia wolfberries in
November of 2000. The results were simply amazing. Wolfberry had five times the antioxidant
power of prunes, ten times the power of oranges, twelve times the power of raisins,
and fifty-five times the antioxidant power of cauliflower. Wolfberry
had the highest known ORAC score for any whole food.
Today, the ORAC test is much more sophisticated. It has been expanded to cover more
free radicals: the hydroxyl (HORAC), peroxynitrite (NORAC), and superoxide (SOD.)
The superoxide free radical is the most prevalent in the body and also generates
other free radicals. It is also the most damaging of all free radicals. The SOD
test measures superoxide scavenging activity. Wolfberry again is unparalleled in
its ability to scavenge and squelch the superoxide free radical—much like

NingXia Red’s astounding SOD score makes all other nutrient drinks pale in
comparison. But why the concern and worry over free radicals? The reason is that the
distresses and ailments of aging are hastened by the attack of free radicals on every
cell in the body. Halt free radical damage and enjoy vibrant health for many more
We will include just one study for illustration. Gerontologists at Peking University
found that a miniscule amount of wolfberry (0.025 percent) in a culture medium allowed
an increase in the number of times human lung cells could divide from forty-nine times
to sixty-one times.1 Quoting Discover
of the Ultimate Superfood, "Using wolfberry in the nutrient broth, researchers
effectively increased the lifespan of the lung tissue by 22 percent."
In addition, there is also an ingredient synergy at work in NingXia Red as the raspberries,
blueberries, and pomegranates in the juice are also potent antioxidants. Even the
essential oils of orange and lemon in this powerful juice contain the antioxidant
