What’s Red and Now Contains Grape Seed Extract?

Posted on May 28th, 2013 | 12 comments

Answer: NingXia Red!

Since NingXia Red® is one of our most popular products, I would like to discuss one of the exciting ingredients in its revolutionary formula: grape seed extract, or GSE. During the reformulation process, Young Living researchers discovered this powerful ingredient, which increases overall health benefits and allows for Halal/Kosher certification, two of their top goals.

Let’s start with the science: GSE is derived from whole grape seeds and is one of the largest natural depositories of polyphenols. In fact, two-thirds of a grape’s phenol count is found in the seed, as opposed to the skin. Unlike other GSEs on the market, NingXia Red’s premium GSE is standardized to a minimum 90 percent total polyphenols and is shown in studies to be superior at supporting against oxidation.

This structurally unique, water-soluble GSE has been selectively extracted to include a higher percentage of lower molecular weight polyphenols, which improves absorption and bioavailability. Its patented,water-based extraction process ensures the final ingredient remains chemical free.

By replacing grape pomace with a powerhouse GSE, we were able to boost NingXia Red’sORAC score, add additional lower molecular weight polyphenols, and allow for Kosher and Halal certification. When combined with essential oils and the wolfberry superfruit, GSE plays an important role in NingXia Red’s promise to deliver a delicious, whole-body nutrient infusion for everyone to enjoy.

    I notice my comments on sodium benzoate in Ningxia Red has been removed or maybe I just don’t know how to retrieve it on this PC driven blog enabler. I am a YL co-distributor and my information is relative. We just want to know why YL is using a deadly substance as a mold inhibitor in Ningxia Red. We need Ningxia Red to be free of such health endangering synthetic chemicals.

    I would like to see some recipes to make this palatable to children. I couldn’t get my kids to even taste it after they smelled it. And I didn’t care for the taste either. So any suggestions that do not involve adding sugar or milk?

      Karen, I make smoothies and add the NingXia to them. Having one now with a frozen bannana, spoon full of nutella, greek yogurt and almond milk. YUMMMM I also put my balance complete in the smoothies and what ever oils I desire.

    I have a question that I know some client is going to ask me who does their research on healthy foods. I see that the ningxia has sodium benzonate/potassium sorbate and those combined with citrus supposedly can create benzene which is carcinogenic. What do I tell them?

    • Sky says:

      It’s required in the most minimal amount by the FDA as far as I know, and the ningxia red FAQ says this “NingXia Red uses whole wolfberries—juice, peel, seeds, and fruit—in a naturally beneficial juice puree. Using these safe and effective preservatives allows us to extend NingXia Red’s shelf life, maintain product integrity, and protect the wolfberry benefits, all while keeping it free of naturally occurring microorganisms.”

    Dear Young Living,

    Every morning I drink the new NingXia Red super juice with Power Meal and my day is off to a great start. I’m planning to use the bottles to serve NingXia Red coctails at my home gatherings. What is the improved ORAC score?

    When can we expect to see an updated video highlighting this wonderfully nutritious super juice?
