People in the valleys of Tibet and Mongolia cherish the Goji Berry. In fact, they honor it in celebrations that last two weeks each year. But it comes as no surprise, as it is believed this berry is what gives them their disease-free lives that often last for more than 100 years. People in the Ninxia region of Northern China have 16 times more centenarians than people in the rest of the country. According to Chinese legend, a man that ate Goji soup lived to be 252.
Researchers began studying Goji Berries expecting to find similar results to other fruits. However, vitamin, mineral and nutrient analysis revealed that the Goji Berry is one of the most nutritionally rich foods on the planet!
In 1988, the Beijing Nutrition Research Institute conducted detailed chemical analysis and nutritional composition studies of the Goji Berry. They discovered that it is packed with an incredible range of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids, essential fats, and health enhancing phytonutrients.
Goji Berries Protects Your DNA
Without constant protection; our DNA can be damaged by anything from toxins to bad food to normal daily activities. This damage leaves our body vulnerable to any imaginable illness and premature aging.
This protection comes in the form of antioxidants, and the research has shown that the goji berry is loaded with age defying, disease preventing antioxidants. Its ORAC value (the value a food is given for its protective potency) is far higher than blueberries, pomegranates, oranges, or raspberries, all of which are powerful antioxidants themselves.
In Asia, goji berries are known as a strong sexual tonic. They increase testosterone levels, which stimulates libido in both men and women. Furthermore, they improve overall stamina, mood and wellbeing, all of which are vital for an optimum sex life.
There is an ancient Chinese proverb that states “He who travels one thousand kilometers from home should not eat Goji!”
An Increase in Energy
Goji berries help the body effectively deal with stress, emotional, physical, and environmental. They especially balance the adrenal glands, which tend to become exhausted through stress. Healthy adrenal glands and good stress coping is absolutely vital for maintaining energy and overall vibrancy.
