As I mentioned last week, I'm so excited to share my absolute favorite way to increase energy.... especially at that 2:30 pm midday slump!
Two words: Ningxia Red
You may have heard me talk about this red juice with the funny name before if you follow me on social but have you really taken the time to take a look at the benefits of this super juice? It's unlike ANY juice on the market. I like to call it "Ninja Juice" because of the Ninja powers I feel after drinking it. Kidding...kind of.
To fully understand its amazingness we have to talk about the Ningxia Wolfberry. It's basically a vitamin capsule in the form of a fruit. Over 15 percent protein by weight, the wolfberry contains over 21 essential minerals, 18 amino acids, and substantial amounts of chromium. Levels of vitamins such as thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), and vitamin C are extraordinarily high.
Ningxia Wolfberry Nutrient Summary
67 times the thiamin (vitamin B1) of brown rice
2 times the niacin (vitamin B3) of baker's yeast
3 times the vitamin C of raw oranges
5 times the calcium of raw cauliflower
2 times the beta carotene of raw spinach
Highest Known Source in Vitamins B1 and B3
The Ningxia wolfberry is the richest known whole food source of natural vitamin B1 or thiamin. Thiamin is essential for proper energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, and thyroid function. Thiamin deficiencies can result in impaired carbohydrate burning and a decline in the energy hormone thyrotropin. The wolfberry also has 100 times the niacin (vitamin B3) as oat bran. -"Ningxia Wolfberry the Ultimate Superfood"
