Ditch & Switch: Energy Drinks

As the gatekeepers of our homes we have such a great opportunity to bring in healthy products and create healthy habits for ourselves and families! Join us this month as we switch out sugary, stimulant-laden drinks for the natural energy of NingXia Nitro!

With ingredients specifically crafted to kick it up a notch, NingXia Nitro is the absolute perfect solution when you’ve started your day at the crack of dawn & need to rev your energy storage, or when you’re seriously suffering from that afternoon slump, or you simply need to tackle a to-do list a mile long…NingXia Nitro has your back!

NingXia Nitro is a delicious wolfberry drink infused with essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract to increase cognitive alertness, enhance mental fitness, and support overall performance. When you need a pick-me-up, turn to NingXia Nitro to improve your physical performance, increase your overall energy reserves, sharpen your mind, and become more focused!


  • NingXia Nitro Juice: cherry, kiwi, blueberry, black currant, raspberry, strawberry, cranberry juices which are packed full of antioxidants to help support our bodies, especially when they are running low!
  • Nitro Energy Blend: D-ribose, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Choline, Potassium, Green tea extract, mulberry leaf extract, Korean Ginseng extract and wolfberry seed oil. All of these are plant-derived vitamins and herbs that help support energy levels naturally.
    • D-ribose: Essential to help build ATP in the body. ATP is the body’s energy currency. You need it to, you know, take a breath, have a heartbeat and for a neuron to fire!
    • Korean Ginseng: Well studied for its ability to support normal cognition.
    • Green Tea Extract: Anormal, NATURALLY OCCURRING source of caffeine. There’s approximately 30 mg of caffeine per tube.
    • B Vitamins: Critical for normal neuron function. They also help support normal cognitive/brain function.
    • Choline: helps to support cell membrane structure and is an essential building block for neurotransmitters, in particular: acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps to tone down the body and tells the body that it’s okay to relax. It also supports the body’s ability to make good memories and to retain memories.
  • Nitro Alert Blend: vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, peppermint, nutmeg and black pepper. These oils are great for digestion, supporting the adrenal system (the ‘fight or flight’ system that is often turned on too much, especially in the face of constant stress, exposure to computer screens, demanding jobs, etc.), and improving energy levels.

Sadly, conventional energy drinks are filled with ingredients that are actually harmful to our health. Energy drinks are widely promoted as products that increase energy and enhance mental alertness and physical performance. Next to multivitamins, energy drinks are the most popular dietary supplement consumed by American teens and young adults!

Large amounts of caffeine may cause serious heart and blood vessel problems such as heart rhythm disturbances and increases in heart rate and blood pressure. Caffeine also may harm children’s still-developing cardiovascular and nervous system and can be associated with anxiety, sleep problems, digestive problems, and dehydration.

Energy drinks often also contain high amounts of sugar. A single 16-oz. container of an energy drink may contain 54 to 62 grams of added sugar; this exceeds the maximum amount of added sugars recommended for an entire day!

Overall energy drinks are associated with sugar crashes, energy slumps and caffeine withdrawal. Thankfully we have a natural, health-supporting option that works even better!
