|Whether you are buying a house, or looking for quality food and produce, it will boil down to one thing….. Location location location!|
Which brings me to why Young Living has gone to great lengths to have a partner farm in Ningxia China.ONE MINUTE VIDEO!
The Ningxia Hui region is in northwest China near Mongolia. (It’s about the size of the state of Texas). There are approximately 1.78 Million people living in this area, and they eat (among other things) wolfberries as a daily staple of their diet.
Interestingly, the Ningxia people have almost 30 times the number of 100 year olds (centenarians) per capita as the rest of China. This is a people group that tends to live long healthy lives!👵👴
Within this region are the Ningxia people of the west elbow plateau of the Yellow River…. an area that is shielded from outside influence and cultures. #cleanandpureThe Yellow River flood plain (where our Ningxia Wolfberries are grown) is watered by melting snow from the Himalayan mountains. As the water flows downward, it gathers an incredible assortment of pure minerals and organic nutrients from the mountains.
The result is mineral rich, super fertile siltwater….. a unique growth medium found nowhere else on earth. No surprise, the Ningxia region is called “China’s herbal medicine valley”.
Because the area itself is so shielded from outside influence, there is an unusual purity of soil. Leave it to Young Living to source our products from pristine environments! 💝
So, location matters…. And the soil content matters too! Since the mid 70’s, agricultural soil world wide has been slowly depleted of its rich mineral content. Now, even organic foods are often minerally depleted because of decades long poor soil management.
Poor mineral content in soil = poor mineral content in food = mineral deficiencies in people = disease & dysfunction
And guess what!….. We’ll never have to worry about depleted soils affecting our NingXia wolfberry products. Why?….. Because of the constant flow of nutrients and minerals from the Himalayan mountains snowmelt runoff, the wolfberry plants remain rich in nutrients!
Pretty cool, huh?
👉If you’ve never tried NingXia Red, I’d suggest starting with the two pack (item #3042).
👉 Dried organic wolfberries ( item # 6360) are also a super healthy snack:
🍓15% protein by weight
🍓Contains over 21 essential minerals (including magnesium and potassium)
🍓18 amino acids
🍓Healthy (and substantial) amounts of vitamin B1, B3, C, calcium, and beta carotene.
🍓21% fiber by weight (more than oatbran or buckwheat)
They are easily substitutable for any recipe that normally calls for raisins or dried cranberries!
Our NingXia Red is made with wolfberry puree and other antioxidant rich fruits, so we are getting a healthy liquid source of all of the above!
I hope you found all of this as fascinating as I did… I had fun learning alongside you!
You can grow wolfberries elsewhere (and lots of places do!), but they’ll never hold a nutritional candle to the wolfberry from the Yellow River flood plain in NingXia, China!
