In our last post, I included some testimonials showing how different people had benefited from drinking Ningxia Red. Gary Young, has also incorporated the wolfberry into numerous nutritional supplements and meal replacement formulae.

Ningxia wolfberries are also found in these other nutritional products:

Balance Complete™ Vanilla Cream Meal  Replacement

This is quite yummy. I have it for breakfast in the mornings (alternate it with powermeal – see below). You can make some great shakes with it. We typically add fruit like apples, bananas, strawberries and blueberries (when in season) as well as Ningxia Red juice and some coconut milk. Occasionally I will add an egg to it as well. It keeps me going till about lunch-time. If you find you’re still feeling hungry, add an extra scoop or add an egg. Balance Complete is high in fiber and protein, along with good fats, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.  It’s designed to be a powerful energizer, immune system booster and cleanser.
Along with the high antioxidant benefits from Ningxia wolfberry powder you’re getting these healthy ingredients:
brown rice bran, barley grass, aloe vera, cinnamon powder and a whey protein blend.

I am no psychologist, but I see anxiety as an acute form of stress; so bad you can’t sleep at night, you feel depressed and can’t seem to feel a sense of joy in life. I don’t know about you, but emotional pain can be as debilitating if not more so than pain of the physical variety.

And sure if you go to your doctor he or she will prescribe the usual cocktail of drugs to somehow allow you to continue with your life. But often these come with their own bevy of side effects. If you want to avoid the synthetics, the pharmaceuticals, then essential oils are a great alternative. They have the capacity to enter the blood stream very quickly, repair DNA, penetrate the blood-brain barrier and in so doing bring much needed oxygen into the brain. The hows and whys of why essential oils can benefit us emotionally, I’ll leave for another time.  So what are the oils that will help someone suffering from anxiety, worry and panic attacks?
