Did you know that in some areas of the world a life expectancy of more than 100 years is common? Even more interesting is that these cultures often experience far lower rates of many of the degenerative and chronic diseases that are so common today in Western societies. A few such areas can be found in China, Mongolia and Tibet. And what do these places all have in common? The goji berry!
With a flavor resembling a combination of cranberries and cherries, Sunfood Goji Berries are a delicious superfood you can enjoy any number of ways. Often called Wolfberries and considered the number one food-herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, goji berries are one of the most nutritionally-rich fruits, providing you with a healthy boost of vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and anti-aging benefits. Whether you enjoy them as is or combine into your favorite trail mix, youre sure to feel the health benefits of Sunfood Goji Berries as they are considered a complete source of protein and regarded as a top longevity and strength-building food.
Sunfood Organic Goji Berries come directly from farms in a pristine region of China where quality is closely monitored. We make sure our goji berries are safe from mold, yeast, fungi, bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticide residues. Over the last few years we have seen many so-called "wild-crafted" and even organic goji berries test positive for a pesticide called acetamiprid. Our goji berries are independently tested by a third party laboratory to guarantee that they are free of pesticides.
The Legend of Li Ching Yuen
Li Ching Yuen was a master Chinese herbalist who was said to have lived from 1677 to 1933. That's 256 years! The story of his long life was said to be mere folklore until an Imperial Chinese government record was found from 1827, congratulating one 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. When scientists looked into the health properties of goji, they found everything they associate with longevity; an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and a very special compound that helps the body secret Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Today goji berries are known as one of the world's most powerful anti-aging superfoods.
In addition to being a top longevity food, gojis are thought to be the most nutritionally rich fruit on Earth. Gojis contain more iron than spinach, more beta carotene than carrots, and more protein than whole wheat (13%). Gojis are packed with 18 amino acids, eight of which are the essential amino acids, including isoleucine and tryptophan. Plus goji berries are one of the highest antioxidant containing fruits in the world, typically containing 2-4 times the amount found in blueberries.
While fortifying the immune system and helping to stimulate the body to produce more natural Human Growth Hormone, studies with elderly people have shown that these powerful berries can decrease the signs of aging, increase the function of T cells and white cell interleukin-2 while uplifting mood, increasing optimism, improving appetite and encouraging better sleep patterns.
