NingXia Red For Your Pet's Health
By Dr Jeannie Thomason

Chronic imbalances in the immune system such as cancer, diabetes, kidney and live failure, heart disease, digestive problems, skin problems, gingivitis, arthritis, allergies, ear infections, yeast over-growth, etc. have been on the increase in our companion animals over the last 30 or so years. Our pets are dying much younger and having more symptoms of anxiety, depression and aggression than ever before. Have you ever stopped to wonder why?

Interestingly all these signs of imbalance were once only human ailments; rarely if ever seen in our pets. So what is the common link? What if anything can be done to prevent or reverse these problems?

Think about it, our own diets, and what we feed our companion animals is mostly processed, commercial foods anymore, we live in a fast, convenient food age. These processed diets and fast, junk foods are taxing both our own and our pet's immune systems. Our pets are being vaccinated more and more frequently and we are using toxic chemicals in, on and around our homes, yards and our pet's bodies as well as our own, more than ever before.

The use and abuse of antibiotics, steroids, chemical pesticides etc. are taxing the liver, kidneys and over all immune system while they continue to drive the cause of the symptoms further and further into the body.

Modern, conventional human and veterinary medicine focuses on and addresses the symptoms of unrest and imbalance instead of looking for the underlying causes of symptoms.

Aside from trauma, the process of death, at the cell level, is oxidation. The death of cells is caused by an invading molecule called a "free radical" which invades cells causing their death. These invading free radicals are part of our companion animals (and our own) daily environment. The chemical preservatives in processed pet foods, water, chemical pesticides for fleas, ticks and heartworms (yes even those sold by your veterinarian), are not recognized as anything more than a toxin to the body, can potentially, become a free radical.

To keep it simple,when a free radical enters the body and the immune system is not functioning optimally, three things can occur.

Should the free radical attack a cell membrane, allergies and/or their symptoms will occur.

Should the molecule attack the fat globule that nourishes the cell, the cell then dies. This is associated with aging and inflammation in the body.

Should the free radical attack the nucleus of the cell, which has the reproductive map of the cell (DNA) cancer can develop.

Immunodeficiency combined with a weak antioxidant defense system are the primary causes of illness. When the animal's body is constantly bombarded by free radicals it is virtually impossible for the antioxidant defense system to be consistently at peak performance. To a great degree, immune activity is aided by antioxidants.

Antioxidants are substances that act as shields or barriers to prevent the invading free radicals from doing harm to cells. Antioxidants not only increase the number of white blood cells, they also enhance antibody formation. The only logical solution is to help the ailing antioxidant defense system through the use of antioxidants.

The Ningxia Wolfberry, (also called goji) is the highest ORAC antioxidant known. ORAC or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro. (1)

Just as the wolfberry has been shown to have remarkable protective and immune supporting abilities in the human body, it may also benefit the health of your pets by helping them to normalize and balance his/her vital immune function.

As you are all aware, proper nutrition is the key for total health and vitality in our pet's lives. Superior nutrition can help your companion animals not only sustain life but to thrive and keep a healthy immune system. I want to share with you an extremely healthy, all natural supplement (made with wolf berry).

NingXia Red Juice
This juice packs in more vital nutrients than any other known substance and is unmatched in its health promoting powers.

Researchers have discovered that the wolfberry and Ningxia Red's other ingredients are a goldmine of highly bio-active polysaccharides and antioxidants, so unique that they are referred to as "master molecules" by virtue of their ability to harness the body's most important biochemical defense systems.

Supplemental amounts of NingXia Red juice can reap the following rewards for your own dog,cat or bird:

Immune Protection
More active dogs that compete in hunting trials or agility are prone to the same type of cuts, bruises, and sprains that cause us all discomfort. As our dogs age, many of them develop discomfort in their joints. Increasing the essential polysaccharides in the diet, have been shown to decrease the discomfort.

NingXia Red has these essential polysaccharides that support the activity of all classes of immune lymphocyte cells, as well as help activate them when under attack. This means your pet is protected from infection and inflammation before symptoms occur, and they will recover faster in the event symptoms do arise.

The high amounts of antioxidants, polysaccharides and other immune defense properties may also offer cancer protection.

The cells in our pet's bodies (ours too) may be attacked approximately 100,000 times per day by free radicals. A free radical is a molecule without an electron. For it to be balanced, it seeks out electrons from other cells and steals them. Cell membranes are where many of these electrons are taken from, and results in these cell membranes eroding, and then cells do not work properly.

Free radicals set off a change reaction- they destroy cellular tissue, and cell membrane which destroys the communication in the cells.

In an animal study done at a hospital in Beijing in 2002, Wolfberry was found to stimulate interleukin-2 and gamma interferon, two substances important in supporting a healthy immune system.

The wolfberry also contains 500 times more vitamin C by weight than an orange, contains over 20 trace minerals such as iron, copper, calcium and zinc,and are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta carotene (with more beta carotene than even carrots), in the world.

How does the body protect itself?
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals.
Antioxidants are a normal part of the body to balance it. They give the molecule the electron it needs with out damaging a cell to get it.

Anti-oxidants come from various fruits and vegetables. Berries out perform vitamins in fighting these free radicals- (Wolfberry, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry etc.) Ningxia Red is an antioxidant!

Protecting DNA
If free radicals remain unchecked, they can even attack DNA, the blueprint used to create each new cell in the body. If not repaired, damaged DNA copies itself to new cells created. In this manner, each new cell is damaged, and mutation can occur. A number of studies show that wolfberry is protective against DNA breakage and mutations. Additionally, ellagic acid, found in blueberries, raspberries, and pomegranates (all juice ingredients in NingXia Red) has been found to "protect DNA against injury."

NingXia Red juice on the ORAC scale, which measures the anti-oxidant qualities is very high ....... 1500 as compared to:

Xango juice at 550,
Tahitian Noni at 500,
Himalayan Goji juice at 400, and
Limu Juice at 87.

Supporting Cardiovascular Health

Pomegranate juice, one of the juice ingredients in NingXia Red, has been found to inhibit a key enzyme responsible for the progression of atherosclerosis by 36 percent, and a 5% decrease in systolic blood pressure after just two weeks of consumption.1 Even more exciting, pomegranate juice given to mice with pre-existing heart disease had indicators of that disease (foam cells and atherosclerosis lesions) reduced by almost half compared to controls.2

Supporting Eye Health
One of the carotenoids found in the wolfberry in higher than normal amounts, is called Zeaxanthin. There are some 40 clinical studies showing that Zeaxanthin is a powerful eye protectant. Being a breeder of Boston Terriers which can have inherent cataracts, I am very excited to see how well NingXia Red's wolfberrys will make a difference in dogs eye health.

Improved Energy and Performance
A happy pet is an active and healthy pet. Experts say that NingXia Red's high levels of adaptogens increase energy and stamina by improving your animal's ability to consume and use oxygen. Adaptogens also improve cardiovascular health by strengthening the heart and circulation, and continue to work overtime while your pet is resting by supporting muscle growth and repair.

Obesity Reduction
Well over twenty-five percent of all American pets suffer from obesity. Odds increase with spayed or neutered pets. Obese pets are at a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, joint problems, and diabetes. In an animal study, it was found that Ningxia Red's polysaccharides converted food into energy more readily and helped to reduced body weight.

Diabetes Management
Sadly enough, diabetes has reached epidemic proportions among pets (largely due to improper diet). The wolfberry, (the main ingredient in Ningxia Red) has been used in the treatment of diabetes in China for many years. Its polysaccharides have been shown to help balance blood sugar and insulin response.

NingXia Red also has a very low glycemic index. It has eight essential saccharides required for glycoprotein synthesis:
N Acetylglucoseamine
N Acetylneuraminic acid- sialic acid

* Essential Oils in NingXia Red
It has been found that supplements enhanced with essential oils increase the absorption of food nutrients and aid in the detoxification of the body.

* Essential oils are the life-giving resin found in all plant life that delivers the nutrients that produce strong and healthy plants. Essential oils may enhance oxygen uptake, absorption and utilization

NingXia Red fills the nutritional needs that our pet's foods no longer have available. They also like the taste!

If you're looking for a way to help a sick or injured pet without aggressive medication, or if you're looking for a way to keep your pet vibrant and healthy, consider this all-natural way to enhance your pet's biochemical defense mechanisms.

NingXia Red Ingredients: Ningxia Wolfberry Puree, Blueberry Juice, Plum Juice Concentrate, Cherry Juice Concentrate, Aronia Juice Concentrate, Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, Proprietary Essential blend - 50mg Grape seed extract*, Orange EO, Yuzu EO , Lemon EO, Tangerine EO, Other ingredients: Tartaric acid, natural blueberry flavor, pure vanilla extract, malic acid, pectin, sodium benzoate/potassium sorbate, natural stevia extract.

*Safety of Grape Seed Extract: Grapes and raisins have been the focus of much debate in past years. Here is in part from the Veterinary Information Network board posts: "Ingestion of grapes or raisins has been associated with acute renal failure in dogs. Anecdotal evidence suggests that cats may also be affected... It is thought that grapes being a fructose sugar, it is quickly eliminated through the kidneys where it may reach high tissue levels. It then would cause a certain cell "power house" called the mitochondria to open and allow calcium to enter. This causes the mitochondria to stop functioning, therefore the death of the cell. Recent unpublished data indicates that the toxic component is water soluble, and within the flesh of the grape/raisin, not the seed. Thus the current thinking is that grape seed may be safe to use."

Grape seed is often found with antioxidant supplements used for human cancer treatments. The seed induces the cell deaths of highly replicating cancer cells. There was a study done on men with prostate carcinoma which showed approximately 90% inhibition of the pathways that induces the growth of the cancer cells.

The flavanoids in the seed are known to reduce inflammation, and support the immune system particularly with respiratory issues, allergies, and skin problems. It has been used in cats and dogs successfully without any reported problems. Grape seed extract appears to be especially beneficial to aging animals, and animals with cataracts, cancer and heart disease.
