NingXia Nitro

Do You Need A Boost of Energy_

I recently “discovered” NingXia Nitro & am I glad i did!!  Not only am I using it during my “I need a nap or cup of coffee” time around 2 pm.  (It gives me the “pep” I need.)   I also gave it to my older sons when they were taking finals to help them focus and to have that burst of energy needed for those “crunch times.”

You may be thinking “I know about NingXia Red, because I read about it previously in your post, but what is NingXia Nitro?”   Well.. let me tell you about it!

NingXia Nitro

A Bit About NingXia Nitro

Young Living states that  NingXia Nitro™ is an all-natural way to increase cognitive alertness, enhance mental fitness, and support overall performance.  Each box contains 14 single-serve tubes (20 ml each).

NingXia Nitro™ combines 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils with naturally powerful ingredients to lift mental clarity and focus while also providing a surge of energy when needed.
Its benefits are derived from a wide range of powerful cognitive enhancers.

Some of these cognitive enhancers include a proprietary blend of pure black pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils. Other supportive ingredients are vitamins, green tea extract, choline, and Korean ginseng.  These ingredients s are added to sharpen the mind and invigorate the senses.  It also contains Bioenergy  Ribose®.

What is Ribose and why was it added? Ribose is a five-carbon sugar that is naturally produced in every cell and is the backbone of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).  ATP is the energy compound that drives chemical reactions in human cells.  You may be thinking… “Wait a minute… its a sugar & I know sugar isn’t great for me.”   You are right in that Ribose is a sugar, but it is metabolized different so it isn’t converted to fat.  Instead, it is saved for energy production i.e. ATP.     Bioenergy Ribose is part of many Olympic athletes training regimens.  If it helps top athletes, just imagine what it can do for you!

Primary Benefits

*Increases mental fitness, cognitive alertness, and physical acuity*
