Goji berries (also known as wolfberries) have been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to boost life-force or “chi” energy. The goji berry is sacred to the people of Tibet and they hold a special festival every year to honour and celebrate the life giving qualities of this extraordinary berry. The legendary Li Qing Yuen, who is believed to have lived to the age of 252 years (1678-1930), consumed Goji berries daily. The life of Li Qing Yuen is one of the most well-documented cases of longevity in history.
Goji berries are delicious eaten just as they are, or combined with cereals, desserts, or trail mixes. They can be brewed into a delicious nutritional tea simply by soaking them in hot or cold water, and the soaked berries can be added to your smoothie for an extra boost.
In terms of overall nutrition Goji Berries are unmatched by any other food. They contain 18 kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan). They contain 11.7% protein, and 328 calories per 100g. They also contain up to 21 trace minerals (the most powerful ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus). Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants on earth! They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges making them second only to camu camu berries as the richest vitamin C source on earth. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E. 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.
The indigenous mountain people who grow these berries eat them by the handful and say the best way to start the day is with a handful of gojis. While it is recommended to eat at least 10 grams a day, which is approximately a handful, you can eat as many as you like!
