Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I am a 56 year old man who is 5'10 tall, weighed only 145 lbs, smoked 20 cigarettes a day, drank 20 cups of coffee a day, ate poorly, had very little money, was quite introverted and had always wanted to build a muscular body. I learned about NingXia Red and started on 1 oz. per day. I also had a friend take my measurements for my neck, biceps, chest, waist and legs before I started drinking the juice.

After a couple of weeks I felt like going to a gym to work out, which I had never done before, because I felt ashamed of my body size. I felt I looked skinny. Also, I never had the energy or the money. But I decided if I could not eat right and yet could buy a 34 oz. bottle of the NingXia Red per month then I would find a way to work out at the gym. I did just that.

Although I was too shy to ask for help, I watched the others and began to work out every day. Within 6 weeks I had put on over 1/2" of muscle on my biceps and triceps and my bones seemed to become harder and stronger. As I continued on the program I began to feel better about how I looked. In fact, one evening when I was attending a meeting where a speaker was talking about the Juice, a woman commented on the dramatic change in me and said I was looking a lot more muscular and bigger and what was I doing. I told her it was the NingXia Red and my workouts.

Today, I am still on the juice and related products (Be-Fit). I have stopped smoking commercial cigarettes completely and am smoking a natural one but only a couple per day. I am now drinking only 4 cups of coffee per day and needless to say I have more energy, look better, have more confidence in myself and am becoming more outgoing.

One neighbor who stopped by and saw me wearing just my cutoff jeans couldn't believe how muscular I looked. He said my skin looked translucent and he couldn't believe my age. As far as I am concerned I will always stay on NingXia Red and related products because I now weigh 160 lb. and even the men in the gym notice and comment on how strong I am and how much endurance I have to pump iron (am lifting 145 lbs. 8 times per set) and it is all to do with the juice. For me it has become an investment in my health and Longevity and I will never stop using it. Gary Young's products work!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: diet — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
2.Associated topics: muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.Associated topics: muscles — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
4.Associated topics: muscles — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
5.Associated topics: diet — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice. The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases."Link
