The Benefits of Essential Oils for Animals ~ NingXia Red Juice Supplement

NingXia Red is a whole food drink made from several "super foods" and also contains the essential oils of Orange and Lemon. NingXia Red is very high in antioxidant action, contains many amino acids, vitamins, minerals, supports liver function, blood sugar balance, energy, and generally benefits the immune system and body as a whole.

NingXia Red is good for so many things, it is impossible to list them all.  In any condition listing where NingXia Red (NXR) is not listed, you can guarantee that the addition of the juice to the regimen will be beneficial.  NXR can often be used as a carrier oil for other supplements and essential oils when internal use is desires, and can even be used externally within various poultices and topical applications.

Specific conditions in which NXR is particularly helpful include (but are not limited to!), soreness due to vaccination, vaccination detoxification, hypoglycemia, any liver condition, Diabetes, anxiety, laminitis, inflammation, and allergies. 

Birds & Exotics:  As general maintenance approximately 1/2 teaspoon can be given per day. Some animals require and crave more, and in general they are allowed to ingest what they desire.  However, it is wise to make sure the amount they are given is gradually increased to avoid diarrhea or problems from a sudden food change.  During injury or illness, much higher volumes of NXR are consumed. 

Cats:  Some cats love NXR and some cats seem to loathe it.  It is, of course, their prerogative and they are quite certain you should know about it!  Many cats will accept small amounts of NXR Red added to their drinking water, but it must be made fresh frequently.  Many cats will eat NXR mixed into some healthy, premium canned food, and there are some who will drink NXR straight.  For general maintenance, cats can consume approximately 1/2 teaspoon per day.  During injury or illness, 1 tablespoon or more can be given, and is ideal if the amounts are divided up into more frequent doses.

Dogs:  Dogs are quite easy to give NingXia Red to.  It can be added to foods, or offered in a bowl (straight or diluted).  General maintenance varies depending on the size of your dog.

Senior dogs, or dogs with any sort of health complaint can generally receive double maintenance amounts on a long-term basis.  During injury or illness, triple amounts or more are given, gradually increasing amounts to avoid diarrhea or problems from a sudden food change. 

Horses & Large Animals:  NingXia Red can be given straight, added to water, or mixed with various feeds or hay.  For general maintenance, 1-2 ounces per day can be given. For performance horses and animals, often 3 ounces per day is given.  During injury or illness, 4 ounces or more can be given.  During laminitis episodes in horses, the consumption of 4 ounces or more of NXR per day has greatly reduced the duration of illness and eases pain and inflammation.

  1. Hi
    I can use the Ningxia red daily? I have a 23 yr old mare, shes in great shape but has borderline cushings and lyme, would I still be able to use the Ningxia? Is there any sugar in it?


    1. Yes, it's fine to use Ningxia Red daily for your animals and for yourself. The only sugars in Ningxia occur naturally from fruit juices.
