it's supplemental! support your body through all the ups + downs of life
I am so glad you are here to learn more about the amazing supplement line from Young Living. You KNOW they’re made from the best stuff around and you won’t believe the amazing variety of supplements you can snap up. (jump to the bottom, if you're more visual and want some easy to digest graphics)
The trouble with supplements is actually remembering to take them! Who knows this person?? Maybe it’s you. We all know that person who always had a million supplements in their kitchen cabinet, but never took them. Maybe you have a hard time swallowing pills. Whatever your reasoning, the trouble with supplements tends to be actually swallowing them! Many of us have fallen in love with our oils, along with everything that Young Living stands for. I've begun my journey of replacing nearly every product in our homes with the Young Living version, or the version I could DIY using oils. Not to mention that so many of us are getting a subscription box delivered every month full of oils along with some free stuff if you order a certain amount. A LOT of the free stuff was cool oils, new products, and, you guessed it...SUPPLEMENTS! Let’s be real, how many of us would have probably not tried most of these had we not received them for free? Nonetheless, I’ve noticed amazing differences in my life since adding these in and want to spread the good word so that YOU can start feeling amazing too! My routine includes the following...
Attention Lazy People! This is for YOU! (AKA, this is for me!) Master Formula is a super multivitamin, multi-mineral and multi-food supplement! There are 25 key dietary elements from Master Formula, with a minimum of 100% of the daily recommended amounts of 14 different vitamins and minerals. They call it the Master for a reason! This nutritional complex contains vitamins, minerals and food based nutrients to support overall health and well-being.
Primary Benefits //

Gut flora supporting prebiotics
Ingredients help neutralize free radicals in the body
Includes antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other food-based nutriment
Pre-packaged sachets are convenient to take your vitamins on the go

Basically, cannot live without this stuff. It’s delicious and provides a boost of healthy energy for all! I won’t lie, when we first got our kit, these two little packets came with it, and I gave them the side-eye. Then didn't try them for months because I just assumed they were gross. WHOOPS. Not exaggerating when I say I DO NOT miss a day of Ningxia Red. There is really no comparison! Here is why it's the bee’s knees:
NingXia Red is a whole food nutrient that contains powerful antioxidant fighting properties. Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals which can break down your system. Antioxidants: another word for you to Google! Overall wellness and nutritional support is key and the mainstay of this delicious tasting supplement. It is recommended you take 1-2 ounces daily.
NingXia Red is formulated from exotic fruits such as the NingXia Wolfberry and is infused with essential oils. This wonderful supplement supports normal cellular function, eye health and prevents deterrents due to oxidative stress. Fortify, Energize and Revitalize are the key words that come to mind with Ningxia!
What is a Wolfberry? Wolfberries (aka goji berries) are super high in antioxidants and so good for you. In fact - they have an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 25,300! (In comparison, blueberries have score of 2,400.) If that’s not legit, I can’t say what is!
Things you MAY notice when drinking Ningxia Red on the daily //
Increased energy and stamina
Restored healthy sexual function
Maintained healthy cholesterol and healthy blood sugar levels
Combat premature aging
Promoted bowel regularity
Improved immune system
Supported healthy sleep
Supported optimal vision
That’s a whole long list of good.
Okay, remember the issue with supplements? Taking them? Well here’s another that you just can’t afford to skip: Multigreens!
Fun YL fact: Gary Young was first to add essential oils to supplements! Get this- clinical experience has shown that before putting essential oils in the MultiGreen formula, there was 42% blood absorption in 24 hours. After adding the essential oils to the formula, blood absorption increased to 64% in 30 minutes and 86% in one hour! The conclusion was that the cells were now receiving nutrients that they had previously not been able to assimilate! How cool is that?
MultiGreens really packs a powerful punch for a supplement. Get your daily source of greens in this bioactive sea vegetable energy source for vitality. The combination of bee pollen and essential oil blend helps to increase assimilation of the nutrients with an excellent choline source for energy production. This power packed supplement supports the nervous system, cardiovascular system, and the hormonal glands of the endocrine system. It contains 5 green superfoods including alfalfa, Siberian ginseng, barley (super nutrient rich food with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fiber.), kelp and spirulina (a single tablespoon of spirulina is equivalent to 4 grams of protein (that’s like eating an egg!).
🐝Bee pollen is part of this supplement as well and is a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. (If you can get local bee pollen, you can add it into your yogurt, yummy and so so good for you!) It’s also high in protein and loaded with vitamins and minerals!
Essential Oils in MultiGreens //
Rosemary - can support healthy liver function.
Melissa - strengthening, cleansing, and revitalizing and can help to support the immune system.
Lemon - energizing and supportive to the circulatory system, also a great supporter of the liver!
Lemongrass - is purifying and supportive to the digestive system, also great for supporting healthy skin.
Looking for a great non-dairy calcium source? OR any Calcium source for that matter? Young Living's MultiGreens capsules contain barley grass, which offers 11 times more calcium than an 8-oz. glass of milk. That’s crazy awesome!
Probiotics are so in right now! What exactly is a probiotic? These trendy probiotics deliver the “good” bacteria back into your digestive system to keep things working optimally. There are many varieties of probiotics on the market today and there are also a wide variety of qualities. When using a probiotic you want to be sure the probiotic is made up of an active or live strain! Life 9 comes as a delayed release capsule designed to bypass the stomach and deliver the probiotic to the lower digestive tract. The culture count matters as well and Young Living’s proprietary blend contains 17 billion which means 17 billion live beneficial cultures per serving byassing the stomach improving overall efficacy of the probiotic. That’s a lot!
But WHY do we need to use them? Probiotics can help your digestive system absorb more nutrients which is key to maintaining your health. We are learning more and more that the gut plays a HUGE role in optimal health. Supplementation may be helpful to assist the body to support every organ system. Good absorption + the ability to remove toxins = a healthy gut. Two thumbs up! Probiotics also support normal elimination, which also gets a thumbs up!
This supplement contains omega 3 fatty acids (DHA rich fish oil), Vitamin D3 and CoQ10. This combination can be used daily for your wellness regimen. The ingredients are excellent and work together to support normal brain health, cardiovascular health, eye health and joint health. Everyone can benefit from this supplement! Basically, if you’re looking to maintain a normal level of well being, mental clarity and focus, added support for normal cardiovascular function, and additional joint support this is for you! OmegaGize is also infused with Young Living essential oils including German Chamomile and Spearmint.
Why do we need omegas? When it comes to fat, there’s one type you don’t want to cut back on: omega-3 fatty acids. Two crucial ones — EPA and DHA — are primarily found in certain fish. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), another omega-3 fatty acid, is found in plant sources such as nuts and seeds. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but also they deliver some huge health benefits.
What about Vitamin D3? Did you know that we have a Vitamin D deficiency epidemic? With all the concern with skin cancer we load up on sunblock/sunscreen and don’t get nearly enough exposure to the sun. Have your blood levels drawn with your healthcare provider to check your levels. Having adequate levels of Vitamin D is shown to reduce many risk factors. Most multivitamin supplements only contain 400 IU of Vitamin D. This is not enough to increase your stores!
CoQ10 is an antioxidant made found in our bodies and is needed for basic cellular health. Having the proper amount of CoQ10 is crucial to muscle health too.
There are only TWO ingredients in SULFURZYME
MSM (elemental sulfur); and
Ningxia Wolfberry powder.
That’s it! Why wolfberry powder? MSM needs certain nutrients to be assimilated into our body and cells...and just so happens wolfberry contains them all! For dietary sulfur to be metabolized efficiently, the proper calcium amounts must be present. And remember that is takes magnesium to metabolize calcium!
Ninxgia wolfberry is added to Sulfurzyme for this reason. The benefits of wolfberries are amazing. They contain 21 trace minerals, 18 amino acids and many vitamins. It is a significant source of minerals and coenzymes that support the assimilation and metabolism of sulfur.
Everyone needs sulfur to live. If you are depleted of the sulfur you need, then your ability to detox goes way down! Sulfur is our main weapon for detoxing!
What sulfur can do for you //
Sulfur makes up our hair, skin, nails and is also key for rebuilding the myelin sheath around our nerves. The nerve sheath gets eaten off by toxins and heavy metals and we need sulfur for nerve communication! Sulfur also equalizes water pressure inside of our cells which supports joint health, our immune system, our digestive system and our cardiovascular system.
If you have super sensitive skin and tend to detox through the skin, then SulfurZyme should make it into your daily supplement regimen for sure!
It is safe for human and animal use; and is also available in a powder form which is great for your pets. With the powder, you can place it right on their food and they eat it right up! And get all the benefits of essential oils and more!
HOLD THE PHONE. Did someone say skin and hair? You mean, my crappy post-baby skin, and receding hairline can benefit from this supplement? Say no more. Sold.
This is an awesome supplement to take as part of your nighttime routine, riiight as you go to fill your bedside diffuser with sleepy time oils.
Immupro is a blend of some of the most potent immune supporting ingredients all wrapped into one delish fruit-flavored chewable. This one tablet can help fight the effects of oxidative stress on the body. Oxidative stress is when the body has too many free radicals. Free radicals are unavoidable and in excess can cause damage to the body. Pollution, second hand smoke, herbicides, and even our own immune systems produce free radicals. The key to keeping things balanced is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are able to neutralize the free radicals.
Immupro delivers the antioxidants in the form of wolfberries. If you haven’t already heard, wolfberries are off-the-charts-incredible for anyone wanting antioxidants. It also contains a teeny bit of melatonin to support healthy sleep! We all know good sleep is needed to restore and prepare the body for the next day. It also contains calcium, selenium, zinc, and and copper to support the immune system.
How do I use ImmuPro? Chew 1 tablet before retiring.
Kids Need Supplements, too!
Kidscents Mightyvites: Dude. These are the best vitamins for children on the market! There are no artificial dyes or chemicals like other brands we previously used. (Think Flintstones gummies that are loaded with RED DYE. Gross.) Check with your doc on dosage for your kiddo.
The kids MightyVites are chewable tablets that contain superfruits, plants, and vegetables that deliver the full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients for children's developing bodies. These vitamins feature an enhanced vitamin-mineral source and it comes in two natural flavors: orange cream and mixed berry. Mamas if you don't have these...get you some
How To Use: Children 6–12 yrs old, take three chewable tablets daily. Can be taken before breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or in one daily dose.
Kidscents MightyZymes are an all-natural, vegetarian product in the form of chewable tablets designed to help children combat the negative effects of of enzyme depletion. MightyZyme chewables address each of the digestive needs of growing bodies and assist the normal digestion of all foods, including proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. I don't know about you but I like the sound of that!
Why are these important you ask? In short, even the healthiest diet is useless without enzymes. Enzymes are substances that make life possible! They are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in the human body. Vitamins, minerals, nor hormones can do any work without enzymes. This is why enzyme depletion is concerning, and why it needs to stop; starting with our own families. So...defend those sweet systems with a flood of healthy enzymes!
Kidscents MightyPro. YL's newest supplement for kiddos is a probiotic. Can I get an Amen?!? As we talked about earlier, the microbiome is wicked important for overall wellness, and if you have a picky eater like me, this is a sure fire way to keep that microbiome strong. MightyPro is a unique, synergistic blend of prebiotics and probiotics in a supplement specially formulated for children. Featuring a great-tasting formula that can be added to cold food and drinks for easy consumption, MightyPro supports gastrointestinal and immune health and maintains gut health in children, keeping kids up and active.

MightyPro features the goodness of Young Living’s own Ningxia wolfberries and is formulated to support beneficial bacteria in the gut. MightyPro single-serve packets are a convenient choice for the whole family, with a formula that promotes not only digestive health but also general health in both children and adults.*
Ningxia for Kids
Lots of kiddos drink 1 oz of Ningxia a day! Sometimes I mix it with water most days, other days let him drink it straight, and other days we make popsicles!
• NINGXIA RED CREAMSICLES •
Nothing like a hot summer day to make you crave a cool treat, right? However, many of the options available aren’t necessarily the healthiest. Try this refreshing alternative that also provides a ton of extra goodness all in one delicious package! NingXia Red Creamsicles are a huge hit both with kids and adults alike :)
1 cup of NingXia Red
1 cup vanilla yogurt (or non-dairy alternative)
1 cup fresh or frozen fruit
Directions // Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into molds, freeze, and enjoy! If you don’t have popsicle molds handy, simply use small dixie cups and popsicle sticks ;) You could also use plain or flavored Greek yogurt for an additional health boost.

Safety is of utmost importance when using essential oils, of course! It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the information out there; but using common sense and starting gradually will help ease any sort of intimidation you might feel as you begin using essential oils in your everyday life.
We recommend picking yourself up a reference guide of some kind. Our favorites are found at www.discoverlsp.com and you can also grab them on Amazon. Young Living’s' purity and grade is extremely high (which is why I love them!), so they should be used with knowledge and respect. I also ONLY recommend using Young Living Oils and cannot recommend or speak to using any other brand.
Here are a few suggestions for safety:
1. When storing essential oils (EOs), it’s important to keep them in a cool, dark place with lids tightly closed (and ALWAYS out of reach of children). You’ll also want to keep carrier oils (for example coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, vitamin e oil, sweet almond oil, etc.) on hand for dilution. Always use and store EOs in glass containers, especially when drinking them in water, since most plastic products contain chemicals that can be easily broken down by the oil.
2. Most EOs are generally safe for use during pregnancy, but need to be used with common sense. As with any health program, you may want to consult a healthcare professional beforehand. A couple great resources are the books Gentle Babies and Aromatherapy for the Healthy Child.
3. Citrus oils cause photosensitivity when applied to the skin. They may cause a rash or dark pigmentation on skin exposed to UV rays or direct sunlight within 8-10 hours after application.
4. Keep EOs away from eyes and never put them directly into the ears.
5. Should irritation or accidental contact with eyes occur, never use water to clear the EO (they are not water-soluble). Instead, use a V6 vegetable oil complex or other carrier oil (such as coconut oil or sweet almond oil) to cleanse the area and reduce discomfort.
6. Epileptics and people with high blood pressure should use extra caution when using EOs high in ketones like basil, rosemary, sage, or tansy. For people with allergies or sensitive skin, it’s best to test a small area (like the inside of the upper arm or bottom of the foot) and wait 30 minutes before applying to other areas. In general, the bottoms of the feet are safe for topical application.
7. Direct inhalation (*Not the same as diffusing) can be a deep and intensive application method, particularly for respiratory congestion and illness. This method should not be used more than 10-15 times throughout the day without first consulting a healthcare professional.
8. When adding EOs to bath water, start with 1-3 drops first mixed with Epsom salt to help disperse the oil. Never use more than 10 drops in one bath. If a dispersing agent is not used, serious discomfort can be caused due to the fact that oils tend to float undiluted on top of the water.
9. Young Living states right on the bottle if an oil can be consumed as a food additive or “dietary supplement.” Please DO NOT use any EO internally that is not specifically indicated for that purpose.
10. Application of oils on children is not recommended until after 6 months of age, and must always be heavily diluted. Start with the bottoms of feet before applying to other areas of the body. Again, the book Gentle Babies is an incredible resource to learn more on EO safety in pregnancy, while breastfeeding, and with children. Diffusing around babies and children is, however, the safest route. OilyNotebook.com has a convenient dilution calculator to help you figure out a good dilution!
Gold star if you made it all the way through. It’s important!
