Make Delicious NingXia Nitro Energy Smoothies

Posted on May 23rd, 2014 | 5 comments

Between family, work, social, and other day-to-day demands, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. While everyone knows that a wholesome meal is key to good health, many lack the time or motivation to prepare nutritious food, instead finding themselves reaching for quick, empty-calorie options. Looking for nutritious convenience? Allow me to share two easy, delicious smoothie recipes, featuring our mind and energy booster NingXia Nitro™ that are sure to provide the energy and nutrition you need to make the most of every day.

Nitro and Protein Smoothie

This protein-packed treat is the perfect way to refuel after an intense workout or as an on-the-go meal replacement. Formulated with Korean ginseng and B vitamins, NingXia Nitro delivers sustained amounts of energy and alertness. Pure Protein Complete™ and avocado add nearly 15 grams of protein and a boost of omega-3 essential fatty acids to support muscle repair. Plus, the bright taste of fruit and pure Lime essential oil will leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed!

Ingredients:

1 tube NingXia Nitro
1 scoop Pure Protein Complete
4 drops Lime essential oil
½ cup coconut water
Handful of spinach
½ cup diced pineapple
½ cup diced mango
½ cup sliced banana
1 avocado, pit and skin removed
1 tsp. flax seed
½ tsp. Blue Agave
1 cup cubed ice (optional)
Shredded coconut (optional)

Directions: Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until you reach the desired consistency. If smoothie is too thick to blend, add additional coconut water.

Sunrise Nitro Smoothie

If protein and workouts aren’t your focus, the Sunrise Nitro Smoothie is a delicious way to start the day. By providing the necessary nutrients for sustained energy, this delightful beverage is the perfect alternative to your morning cup of coffee. In addition to alertness, this smoothie combines the hydrating effects of coconut water; fiber and omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds; and the antioxidant properties of green tea extract. It’s the perfect way to start an impactful day!

Ingredients:

1 tube NingXia Nitro
4 drops Orange or Tangerine essential oil
½ cup coconut water
½ cup strawberries
½ cup blueberries
1 peeled navel orange
½ tsp. chia seeds
½ cup cubed ice (optional)

The Perfect Pair—NingXia Red and NingXia Nitro

Posted on April 9th, 2014 | 184 comments

In today’s fast-paced world, everyone is looking for ways to gain an edge in their productivity and overall energy levels. This desire has contributed to an explosion in the energy drink market—a market that has become a $27 billion-per-year industry. With so much money on the line, many companies take the quick and easy route by slapping energy drink labels on simple combinations that contain copious amounts of caffeine, sugar, and other dangerous ingredients. These companies ignore the major underlying factors in low energy and proper nutrition!

This approach has garnered a rise in regulatory scrutiny, an increase in research, and the uncovering of energy drink-related health risks. Research on the ill effects of many of these energy drinks is published almost monthly; however, it appears to have little effect on the public. Sales continue to soar, while ER visits drastically increase.

So what can we do? Let’s look at a couple of natural solutions to the energy dilemma:

NingXia Red® combines the extraordinary wolfberry superfruit with pure essential oils (Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine) in a powerful whole-body nutrient infusion. When taken daily NingXia Red replenishes energy levels and supports overall nutrition.

NingXia Nitro™ blends pure essential oils (Peppermint, Spearmint, Black Pepper, and Nutmeg) with naturally powerful ingredients such as d-ribose, green tea extract, and B vitamins. These ingredients, in addition to a Nitro blend of vanilla, chocolate, wolfberry seed, and yerba mate, provide a lift to one’s mental clarity and focus, while also providing a surge of energy. Designed to be taken when a boost is needed and with less caffeine than a cup of coffee, Nitro is a perfect option for on-the-go use.

These synergistic products are designed to be the healthy answer to the energy question. To help you get started on your journey to improved energy, we are going to give away two NingXia Red/Nitro product packs (over $100 value) to two random individuals who leave a comment on this blog post.

Seeing a Potential Young Living Member in Everyone

Posted on February 27th, 2014 | one comment

This is a special guest blog post by Young Living brand ambassador Stevie Baggs.

My name is Stevie Baggs, Jr., and I’m a Young Living member. I want to tell you how a recent event changed the way I look at building my business. Before I begin though, I want you to get to know me a little.

I was raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and currently live in Atlanta, Georgia. Although I am a Young Living member, actor, and philanthropist, I am most well known as a football player. I played football in high school, college, and professionally in both the NFL and the CFL.

Over the years I’ve turned more and more to natural products because I want to reach the optimal level of well-being without all the artificial ingredients. A few years ago, a friend talked to me about a company that would help me reach that level. That was the first time I’d heard about Young Living, and it wasn’t long before I became a member.

Now I have the opportunity to be a brand ambassador for Young Living, giving me the opportunity to represent this company and its natural, healthful products. As an ambassador, I was honored to be a keynote speaker at a Young Living Introductory Meeting Featuring NingXia Nitro™ in Birmingham, Alabama. It was an exciting event that focused on NingXia Nitro, one of Young Living’s most popular new products and my personal favorite!

At the event I saw big, athletic guys like me talking to stay-at-home moms about how much they love Thieves®. I saw businessmen and teachers talking about the best uses for Lavender. I saw a diverse set of people, all interested in achieving wellness through the use of essential oils.

That’s when I realized something that changed the way I think about building my business: If we have such a diverse group of Young Living essential oil users, that means we have many opportunities to share our message with others! We need to see a potential Young Living member in every person we meet!

Turning that potential into a sharing opportunity isn’t as hard as you think. For example, I use NingXia Nitro every day. When I use it at the gym, one of my workout buddies might ask what I’m taking. I also like to add a few drops of Lemon or Thieves oil to my water when I eat at restaurants, and that always sparks questions from the others at my table. It’s easy then to explain the value of Young Living and describe the benefits of whatever product I’m using. Once they see the value, I have the opportunity to invite them to learn more by trying products, visiting the web page, or attending live events.

I’m convinced that more people than we realize are ready to listen. Take a look around as you go through your normal daily routine and you’ll see people everywhere who can benefit from our message of wellness, purpose, and abundance. Share with everyone and you’ll see your business grow like you’ve never imagined!

—Stevie Baggs, YL Brand Ambassador, Actor, Former CFL and NFL player

Overcoming Excuses with Young Living Products

Posted on February 5th, 2014 | 70 comments

For most people, finding the motivation to start a new goal or project is easy. Keeping with it is usually where the problem lies. For instance, take starting an exercise program, which is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions. Simply visiting a gym the first few weeks of January shows how easy it is to begin. However, by the middle of February, the crowds have thinned and you no longer have to wait in line for the treadmill.

Whether your excuse is lack of energy, motivation, or desire, Young Living has a myriad of obstacle-removing products. Here are a few of the products I use to overcome my excuses:

NingXia Nitro™ — NingXia Nitro is perfect for those days when you feel you don’t have enough energy to exercise or keep focused on your goals.

Deep Relief— This product is great for post-workout use on tired or sore muscles. It can also be used before your workout.

Life 5— Daily use of Life 5 can keep you feeling your best. Research continues to show that a properly working digestive tract is an important factor in achieving optimal health.

BLM—Packed with collagen and MSM, BLM supports healthy bones, joints, and muscles and is an ideal way to encourage fluid movement.*

Peppermint Essential Oil —If you’re feeling run-down, simply rub a few drops of Peppermint in your hands, cup your hands over your mouth and nose, and inhale the invigorating aroma to awaken the mind and senses.

Believe™ Essential Oil Blend —Write down your goal and place it where you will see it each day. Then, per Mary Young’s recommendation, place 1–3 drops of Believe on your head to encourage feelings of belief and faith that you can accomplish your goal.

To publicly declare your motivation, please comment on this blog with your current goal or resolution. We will randomly choose three lucky individuals to receive an essential oil of your choice (up to $70 wholesale value)!

NingXia Nitro Feature: Ribose, a Fundamental Energy Compound

Posted on September 27th, 2013 | 6 comments

When Young Living launched one of its most exciting products, NingXia Nitro, founder and CEO D. Gary Young was confident of its success. Although he was entering an industry saturated with options, NingXia Nitro’s unique formula and health benefits fueled his confidence. By blending together pure essential oils and powerful cognitive enhancers, Gary created a product that supports mental acuity and enhances physical performance. These cognitive enhancers include not only well-known B vitamins, green tea extract, and ginseng; but they also include a proprietary Nitro Alert™ oil blend consisting of vanilla and chocolate oils, yerba mate, spearmint, peppermint, nutmeg, black pepper, wolfberry seed oil, and ribose.

What is ribose and why was it added? Ribose is a five-carbon sugar that is naturally produced in every cell and is the backbone of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a fundamental energy compound that drives nearly all chemical reactions in human cells. Although it is a sugar, it is metabolized differently than sucrose or glucose and is absorbed instantly into the bloodstream. Unlike other sugars, excess ribose isn’t converted into fat by the body; instead, it is saved for use in ATP energy production. This vital difference is key to the importance of supplementing; and doing so supports cellular energy levels, energy recovery, and energy reserves. It also supports healthy energy levels in the heart and muscles.

By utilizing Bioenergy Ribose, Young Living delivers ribose that is:

  • Non-GMO
  • Naturally occurring
  • Kosher and Halal certified

If that isn’t enough to convince you of the power of this product, Bioenergy Ribose is currently part of the training regimens of many Olympic athletes. These athletes not only undergo extreme physical stress, but they are also limited to natural supplements and subjected to extensive testing. If ribose can help top athletes support their energy levels, just think of what it can do for you.

Essential Oils & Exercise Part 1: Pre-Workout

Posted on August 16th, 2013 | 5 comments

This is the first article of a two-part series on how to incorporate Young Living essential oils and essential oil-infused products into an exercise routine. This post will focus on the pre-workout.

At least 30 minutes before each workout, it is important to increase the amount of water you consume. Supplement this with your choice of NingXia Red® for added nutrition, NingXia Nitro™ and Slique™ Tea to increase alertness, and a clear capsule with 4-6 drops of Lemongrass essential oil to get ready for your workout. These products work together to help improve energy and endurance and increase thermogenics in the body.

Immediately following this preparation, it is important to warm up the body to prepare your muscles for the workout. If your muscles are sore, gently rub a few drops of Peppermint essential oil onto the affected area to help soothe the minor discomfort. As with any workout regimen, a healthy diet and proper technique will help you achieve your fitness goals.

Recommended Pre-Workout Products:

NingXia Red: NingXia Red’s cascading energy and nutrient-rich formula is a perfect way to prepare for any workout.

NingXia Nitro: NingXia Nitro is an all-natural way to enhance physical performance. Not only does it deliver a unique combination of B vitamins, essential oils, and green tea extract, but it also contains Bioenergy Riobose®, a premium ingredient clinically proven to increase energy, accelerate recovery, and reduce fatigue and muscle pain.

Slique Tea: By providing a rare blend of jade oolong leaves, ocotea, and frankincense powder, Slique Tea is a delicious beverage that provides a natural energy boost.

Slique Essence Essential Oil Blend: Young Living’s Slique Essence essential oil blend contains a unique combination of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea essential oils that uplifts and energizes.

Lemongrass Essential Oil: Lemongrass essential oil contains high levels of citral, a compound that may support thermogenic activity in the body when consumed.

Peppermint Essential Oil: When ingested, Peppermint essential oil supports digestion and may improve concentration and mental acuity.  When used topically, it soothes sore muscles.

In the next article of our two-part series on essential oils and exercise, we will focus on Young Living products that can assist you during your workout and post workout.

Need More Energy?

Posted on June 27th, 2013 | 207 comments

“I can’t give you more time, but I can give you more energy,” announced D. Gary Young during the general session of the 2013 International Grand Convention.

If I (Ryan) were posed with the question of what I would want more in my life, energy would be one of my top three answers. Nearly every day I arrive home from a long day of work drained both physically and mentally. Upon arriving, I am greeted by an exhausted wife, four energetic children fighting for my attention, and a list of projects to finish. It is at that point I wouldn’t mind a little boost.

Obviously, the first step to increasing energy is a healthy diet, exercise, and adequate rest. For me, that covers about 90 percent of my time. So how do I make up the difference? Gary’s recommendation is NingXia Nitro. NingXia Nitro is an all-natural way to increase cognitive alertness, enhance mental fitness, and support overall performance.* Its benefits are derived from a wide range of powerful cognitive enhancers, including:

  • Proprietary Nitro oil blend—Black pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils and wolfberry seed oil
  • Proprietary Nitro energy blend—Bioenergy Ribose®, green tea extract, Korean ginseng extract, mulberry leaf extract
  • B vitamins—B12 (methylcobalamin), B3 (niacinamide), B6 (pyridoxine HCI)
  • Choline

Gary Young synergistically combined immediate and long-term energy-supporting ingredients into a product that speeds up recovery and increases overall energy reserves. NingXia Nitro is a simple and convenient way to become more focused, support mental acuity, and enhance physical performance.*

Each order of NingXia Nitro comes with 14 single-use tubes. It is designed to be taken directly from the tube or mixed with 2-4 oz. of NingXia Red®. or 4 oz. of water anytime you need a pick-me-up. NingXia Nitro is intended to enhance, not replace, NingXia Red. It should be available for purchase in mid-July.

We want to know why you want more energy. We will randomly select one individual who leaves a comment by Friday, June 28, on what he or she would do with more energy to receive a free box of NingXia Nitro. Good luck!
