In the video I talk a little about what makes these gummies a healthy snack option. Below I list out some of the key health benefits.
Young Living’s NingXia Red® Health Benefits:
NingXia Red® is a superfruit supplement containing wolfberry along with pure orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils, along with blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices to deliver a whole-body nutrient infusion.
Here are a few of the health benefits you can see from drinking NingXia Red.
- Fantastic taste with no “junk-juice” (e.g., apple, white grape, pear, etc.) or added sugar.
- Contains a great whole food source of protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins.
- Contains therapeutic grade essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine and orange which contain d-limonene.
- Contains natural antioxidants which protect the body against free radicals. It is free radicals that create cell oxidation; therefore Ningxia Red may help prevent against oxidative stress.
- Highest levels of naturally occurring, age defying S-ORAC activity. Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function and supports healthy eye function.
- May support natural detoxing process on a daily basis.
- Natural form of energy without sugar, caffeine or other artificial stimulants.
Collagen health benefits:
Collagen is the vital building block of our bodies including skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints. Our bodies cannot synthesize enough collagen on their own and our diets today contain minimal collagen. Gut health is another added bonus of having collagen in our diets. It it is becoming a well know fact that gut health effects pretty much every other function of our bodies and it has been determined that up to 80% of our immune system is found in our gut!
Here are a few of the health benefits you can see from taking collagen daily.
- Glowing skin
- A more youthful appearance
- Joint health
- Tendon & bone strength
- Healthy cartilage
- Increased athletic performance
- Improved digestion
- Gut health
- Deeper sleep
Since I cover all the details of how to make these gummy snacks is in this short video, I will stick with listing off the ingredients and sharing a few additional tips.
1 cup of NingXia Red® (or any other 100% fruit juice of your choosing)
2 T. of Vital Proteins (grass fed, pasture raised) Beef gelatin
1 T. of raw honey *optional (to add a little extra sweetness if desired)
6 drops of Young Living’s Citrus Vitality™ Essential Oil of your choosing. Lime, orange & lemon are all great options!
Heat the NingXia and then whisk in the gelatin, honey and essential oils. Make sure you whisk continually while slowly adding in the gelatin. Pour mixture into the moulds and let the gummies “set up” in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before popping them out to enjoy!
* I can only recommend Young Living™ Essential Oils since that is what our family uses and I know it is safe for consumption.
