Another great Ningxia product is Young Living's Ningxia Nitro.
At first, you may think to yourself, there isn't much there.
You couldn't be more wrong.
This tiny little tube packs a big wallop of nutrition and energy.
The fruits, in concentrate, are cherry, kiwi, blueberry, acerola, billberry, black currant, raspberry, strawberry, and cranberry in a base of coconut nectar.
The essential oils and whole oils are vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, wolfberry, spearmint, peppermint, nutmeg, and black pepper. In addition to these ingredients, also included are an energy blend of D-Ribose, green tea extract, mulberry extract, Korean ginseng extract, and Choline.
One of my favorite ingredients in this blend is choline. It is estimated most people are deficient in this nutrient as it is not readily bioavailable in most foods we eat and we would have to consume twice the calories needed to get our recommended daily allowance.
Why is this so important? Choline is used to develop, support, and maintain healthy brain cells. A key responsibility of Choline is in promoting cholinergic activity through the synthesis of acetylcholine.
In your brain there are an estimated 86,000,000,000 neurons and they all communicate predominantly through the transmission of various chemical signalers called neurotransmitters.
Acetylcholine is one of the neurotransmitters most involved in processes related to memory formation, retention, recall, mathematical and verbal reasoning, planning and focus. It is created in your brain when an acetate molecule combines with a choline molecule, but if you do not have enough choline in your system this can result in acetylcholine deficiency. This brain fog can be short term, or long term.
Ever feel like you are walking through life one thought away from what you are trying to remember? As we age, our body needs this important nutrient more than ever.
