It along with plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts plus pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils. It also has an incredibly high antioxidant rating. Antioxidats make for an unfriendly environment for free radicals. If you don't know the effects free radicals have on your body, go look it up.
Where did it come from? In 1993 D. Gary Young met a man by the name of Dr, Cyrus McKell, who had been doing some collaborative research with Dr Sonqiao Chao, a Chinese scientist. Dr Chao wanted to know more about essential oils and in exchange offered Gary information on his latest research project involving Ningxia wolfberries. Throughout his project, it was noted that the local people who were eating large amounts of wolfberries seemed to have greater longevity than those not eating wolfberries. Wow!
Although many species of wolfberries exist, it is the Lycium barbarum species that shows the most health benefits. Gary wanted these for Young Living. Fortunately for him, Dr. Chao's daughter came to work for the Young Living Laboratory. ,he translated all of her father's research and documentation into English and gave it to Gary. He then found a grower of the Lycium barbarum species in the Ningxia Province of China and was the first to import tons of the berries for commercial use. These berries, along with several other fruits, are pureed and mixed with Young Living essential oils to make up our beloved NingXia Red!
