Goji Berries Certified Organic

Goji berry (Lycium barbarum) is a shrub that takes its name from the red berries it produces. Historically, the plant has been harvested for thousands of years in Asia, particularly in China and Tibet. It is mentioned in the ancient medicine book “Tractate for Herbs and Their Properties,” claiming that goji berries can help restore lost body liquids, calm the soul and rejuvenate the skin. In another ancient Chinese book named “Herbs and Food Healing,” the berries are said to help repair muscles and tendons, and provide protection from illnesses.Goji berries have been used in traditional Asian and in particular Chinese Medicine for over 5,000 years. The ancient texts of Chinese Medicine say that goji berries increase the “chi” or the vital life force of those that eat them. The Physician’s Handbook “Ben Cao Gang Mu” recorded during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) states, “taking in Chinese Wolfberry/Goji Berry regularly may regulate the flow of vital energy and strengthen the physique, which can lead to longevity”.Goji Berries are highly nutritious containing 18 amino acids including all the essential amino acids. They have a high protein content, rich in minerals vitamins, especially vitamin C and carotenoids.

Goji berries contain polysaccharides which fortify the immune system and build strength. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be a powerful substance that stimulates the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone by the pituitary gland.

Goji berries contain potential anticancer benefits, according to a recent study published in Life Sciences. Researchers tested goji berry extracts on cancer cells and found out that they induced apoptosis on the cancer, effectively stopping it from spreading further.
