The fountain of youth.....Truly an
This amazing fruit stands head and shoulders above
food index at a staggering 25,300 units.
Did you know that there are over 40 different varieties of the Goji Berry found throughout the world?
The Tibetan goji berry is considered by experts to be the very best and most potent on the planet. The reason for this is because the Himalayan or Tibetan berry is noted for purity and grown in ancient soils, free of pollutants or pesticides.
Not to be confused for the
which can be loaded with pesticides and is highly sulfured.
The Tibetan goji berry is said to contain 2500 mg of
per 100 grams of fruit, making it one of the world's richest sources of vitamin C just close behind the Australian billygoat plum and the
South American camu camu.
It is packed with more beta-carotene than carrots, more iron than
more vitamin C than oranges, plus B vitamins,
18 amino acids and 21 trace minerals.....so our friend, the Goji berry, may be the world's most nutritionally dense food.
The reason for those benefits are because of the unique goji polysaccharides and the fact that goji absorbs great energy from the sun.
Tibetan goji berry grows at high elevations in the Himalayan Mountains and thus closer to the sun than any other health-nutrition food. Thus Goji Berries growing at these high elevations simply collect more of the sun's energy and, when eaten, transfers so much of this energy to the cellular level.
The Goji Berry (Lycium Barbarum)....has been used in traditional Tibetan medicine for centuries.
The plants grow like bushes and have vines that can reach over 15 feet. The berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, and then dried in the shade.
Goji berry juice can be used in
or juice cocktails. They taste similar to raisins.
The Goji berry has absolutely no toxicity and is perfectly safe.
Goji is now being used in clinical trials including the treatment of consumptive disease accompanied by thirst such as early-onset diabetes and tuberculosis, dizziness, blurred vision, and chronic cough.
The berry has also been used in a number of recent clinical trials for treatment of bone marrow deficiency conditions (low production of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets).
There has been some amazing claims of people living a very long time that have taken goji regularly throughout their life. Such is the case of a man called Li Qing Yuen, who apparently lived to the ripe old age of 252 years (1678-1930), consumed Goji berries daily. The life of Li Qing Yuen is the best documented case of extreme longevity known.
Now I am not claiming that you will live for 252 years or more.... but we really cannot ignore the health benefit of this amazing fruit.
In a quote from Dr. Mindell (who has had 11 years of studying goji), “What's the big deal about this small berry? These berries are such a wonderful gift from nature, and they can promote longer life and more life in your years.”
Celebrities Converted To Goji Berries.. Madonna is a great believer. She has turned to goji berries for health, vitality and the possible secret to her eternal youth!
She's not alone...Liz Hurley, Hollywood starlet Mischa Barton and supermodel Kate Moss are leading the legions of A-list celebrity followers.
