I need to make a confession: I was obsessed with researching NingXia. We’ve heard a lot of buzz about the formula, so we did one of our in-depth reviews, taking a close look at the ingredients, side effects, science and customer service. Plus, we read hundreds user comments from all over the internet. Then, we summarized and condensed it all to give you the information you are looking for.
What You Need to Know
First off, NingXia Red is a superfruit supplement drink. It contains a blend of wolfberry, blueberry, pomegranate, apricot, plum, aronia, cherry, and raspberry juices with organic blue agave, grape pomace, vitamin C, grape seed extract, vanilla extract, pectin and lemon an orange essential oils. It doesn’t have to be mixed with water, so it can be taken any time, anywhere.
NingXia Red was created in 1993, by Young Living founder, Gary Young. It’s intended to boost overall health and increase energy levels. We do like the longevity of the company, the fact the drink uses all natural ingredients and that it is available on the official website , but read on…
The Price – “Wowsers?”
The first concern with NingXia ingredients is the cost. Two one liter bottles of NingXia Red cost $71 and this is the minimum amount you can purchase. At one ounce a day, a bottle will last a little more than a month, but the company recently increased the most beneficial dose to four ounces a day. This means, at the maximum dose, one bottle would last about a week and for one person to follow the max dose every day, they’d need to purchase a four pack of bottles for $127 for a month or an eight pack for $243.50 for two. Customers also have the option to purchase a package of 2-oz. singles, with a 30 ct. supply costing $84.50. 60-ct. and 90-ct. packages are also available. “While this drink is definitely a source of nutrition, it doesn’t contain any clinically proven weight-loss formula,” says our Research Editor.
One user said, “A bit pricey.”
”I will continue to take Ningxia Red when I’m sick but won’t take it on a daily basis because its too damn expensive,” said another.

MLM – “Difficult to Purchase a Small Supply”
NingXia is part of a MLM company, which means sales are often made on a large-scale basis. People can purchase the product without signing up to run a business of their own, but the process is a bit complex.
One online report on MLM opportunities asks all the right questions. “If this product or service is so great, then why isn’t it being sold through the customary marketing system that has served human society for thousands of years? Why does it need to resort to a “special marketing” scheme like an MLM? Why does everyone need to be so inexperienced at marketing this! Is the product just a thin cover for what is really a pyramid scheme of exploiting others?”
Our research indicates that if there’s part of a diet program that’s difficult, like needing to drink supplements throughout the day or maintaining the cost of such a large supply, is enough to derail chances of long-term success. To take the recommended dose on a regular basis could be hard for many user wallets to sustain.
The Science – “Clinical Proof?”
We were unable to find any published research to support any of the main ingredients in NingXia Red in relation to weight-loss. For the team here at DietSpotlight, clinical science is important to our recommendation. If there isn’t any that’s easily uncovered, that’s a red flag for us.
The Bottom Line – Does Ningxia Work?
So, this one is unique, but is it worth the high price? We were initially excited to review NingXia, but that interest soon faded. There are no clinical studies to support any connection with weight-loss, so we have trouble suggesting this one. It’s also a bit concerning that the cost is more than $125 a month for a fruit drink.
If you want to drop weight, we recommend choosing a supplement that delivers value for the money and is made with clinically proven ingredients aimed at helping with appetite suppression and fat burning.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Leptigen. It contains a proprietary blend of four ingredients, associated with fat burning and boosts in metabolism. The formula is supported by scientific research. We’ve been unable to find talk of negative results or side effects and reports indicate people are seeing some amazing results.
We’re happy to see the makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product they’re giving new customers a Special Trial Offer, which is a good thing.
