Longevity! The legend of master Chinese herbalist Li Ching Yuen’s long life was said to be mere folklore until an Imperial Chinese government record was found from 1827, congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday. In addition to his practice of Qigong, an ancient exercise of breathing and movement, Yuen was said to have consumed goji berries daily.
Anti-Aging! According to Dr. Earl Mindell, R.Ph., M.H., Ph.D., bestselling author of 50 books on healing and nutrition, goji berries contain polysaccharides (long-chain sugars) which are known to be “a powerful secretagogue, (a substance that stimulates the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone [HGH] by the pituitary gland.”2 Stimulating our bodies to produce HGH is essential for retaining youth because we naturally produce less and less, the older we get.
Overall Wellness! In one study, healthy adults who consumed the juice of goji berries for two weeks filled out questionnaires to track changes to their overall health. The results showed significantly increased ratings for energy levels, athletic performance, quality of sleep, ease of awakening, ability to focus on activities, mental acuity, calmness, and feelings of health, contentment, and happiness. Researchers concluded that goji “increases subjective feelings of general well-being, and improves neurologic/psychologic performance.3
Eye Health! In one study, goji berries were found to increase antioxidant levels in the blood and protect elderly subjects from macular degeneration. Researchers concluded that consuming goji berries for 90 days increases “antioxidant levels as well as protects from hypopigmentation and soft drusen accumulation in the macula of elderly subjects.”4
Libido! Gojis are known to increase sex drive. An ancient Chinese proverb says it all, warning men who travel far from their wives: ““He who travels one thousand kilometers from home should not eat goji!”
