Essential Living Foods Organic Goji Berries

Goji Berries have been used in traditional Asian medicine for a long time! You can find mentions of this extraordinary berry in Chinese medical texts as much as 5,000 years old. Our Goji Berries come from a pristine, certified organic region in the Ningxia province of China. This is the same amazing place where they hold a festival each year to celebrate the Goji Berry and its amazing health benefits.

These chewy little morsels put the super in superfood. Toss a handful in your mouth, in your smoothie, or in your cookie batter, and you’ll be getting a mega-dose of cell-protecting nutrients, essential vitamins and trace minerals, including vital selenium. Need some quick, tasty protein? Gojis are loaded with 18 amino acids! Gojis have traditionally been revered as a longevity food and contain high levels cholesterol-reducing phytosterols and eyesight-protecting carotenoids.

Organic Goji Berries

Organic Goji BerriesAncient Chinese medical texts praised Goji Berries as tonic support for the eyes, liver, and kidneys. More than anything, they are believe to increase the “chi” or life energy in those that eat them. An early medical work, Shen Nung Ben Tsao (475-221 B.C.), observed Goji Berry benefits ranging from replenishing vital essences to strengthening and restoring major organs. The physician’s handbook, Ben Cao Gang Mu, recorded during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) writes, “taking in Chinese Wolfberry/Goji Berry regularly may regulate the flow of vital energy and strengthen the physique, which can lead to longevity.”

To the people of the Ninxia province, a bowl of fresh organic Goji Berries is the best way to begin the day. It is one of nature’s most complete foods. On a nutritional level, Goji Berries are unmatched by any other food. They are loaded with 18 kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan). Plus, Goji berries 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. 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. These Goji Berries are harvested with exceptional care, dried in the sun, and then carefully selected and graded for maximum taste and nutrient potency.

Essential Living Foods’ Organic Goji Berries

Goji BerriesThese delicious red berries have quickly become one of the most popular superfoods in the industry. And while there are many sources for Gojis, Essential Living Foods’ Goji Berries come from a pristine, certified-organic region in the Ningxia province of China. This is the same region where they hold a festival each year to celebrate the Goji Berry and its amazing health benefits.

During harvest season in the late summer, the Goji Berries are hand-picked, shaken onto mats, washed, inspected and naturally shade-dried. They are then inspected again before packaging and tested for purity—hence, we can guarantee they will be free of any chemical pesticides, sulfur or heavy metals.

Nutritional Benefits of Goji Berries

  • First of all, Goji Berries are loaded with 18 kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen).
  • They contain ALL 8 essential amino acids and up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus).
  • Goji berries are also abundant in polysaccharides, compounds that may help fortify the immune system. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be a powerful secretagogue (a substance that can stimulate the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone by the pituitary gland).
  • Goji berries are also one of the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants.
  • 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 sou rce on earth.
  • In China, the Goji is believed to increase the “chi” or life energy in those that eat them. In the Ningxia Province, where our Gojis come from, one village of 4,000 residents has six people over the age of 100. Nationally, only six centenarians would be expected in every one million people.

The Skinny Asian Diet – Lose weight WITHOUT working out or going hungry!

The Skinny Asian Diet - Lose weight WITHOUT working out or going hungry!Click Image To Visit SiteWELCOME! This is my own personal story of the EXACT way I lost 62 pounds in just 3 months while still eating EVERYTHING I love…and how you can lose weight too:

If you had lunch with a girlfriend you hadn’t seen in a couple months and she showed up having lost 60+ pounds…would you be curious how she did it? And if she said she was eating BIG meals and hadn’t worked out or exercised hard at all…what would you be willing to do to learn her secret?

My name is Catherine Cheng. I’m 35 years old, and I was born on the Chinese island of Taiwan.

Yes, that’s me in the pictures, and I fought the same giant thighs, the same ugly belly, and the same flabby arms that you may be suffering with now… Ten years ago I moved from Taiwan to America to enjoy the wondeful life here, and in just two years my weight ballooned up to over 170 pounds. It got so bad that I refused to send my parents and family back home any pictures or video of myself, because I was so disappointed and ashamed.

I felt awful, and grew more lonely and isolated as time passed. I started staying in my room always, I cut off most of my friends, and basically left the living world so I wouldn’t have to face my own fears.

Lose weight WITHOUT working out or going hungry!

I began my search for what I later would call my “Skinny Asian Diet” by doing phone interviews with just about every friend or family member back in Taiwan that I knew…

I asked over 50 questions, and the more I asked the more clear it became that the answer to secret Asian methods to lose weight didn’t center around endless workouts at the gym, or starving  Read the rest of this entry

Brain Health and Sleep Support System

Brain health is one of today’s biggest health topics. There is an enormous amount of information almost daily from research showing us ways to improve our brain performance to reduce the risk of serious memory disorders, and delay the onset of diseases such as Alzheimer’s. But what exactly are we supposed to do?

Brain HealthExperts give us many ideas on what we should do to boost our brain health. Some of the advice we hear may seem surprising, like doing crossword puzzles, playing Sudoku, etc.

Others support old-fashioned medical advice on staying healthy that sometimes feels a bit mundane, but also turns out to be critical to long-term brain wellness. In fact, you may have already started on the path to better brain health without even knowing it.

Better Sleep. Better Brain. Rest Assured.

There is no doubt that correct nutrition, regular exercise, and plenty of quality sleep are conducive to brain function. But what else can we do to support our brain health?

Watch the Video for the latest information on this great new Brain Support product!

Anyone can benefit from the advantages of better, more restful sleep and it is never too early to start giving our brains everything it needs to build a long, healthy and sustained life. New studies show cognitive brain decline starts at around age 35.

Research has traditionally targeted individuals over 60. However, recent research has shown that mental decline can begin earlier in life 30’s or 40’s then by age 60 the degree of cognitive decline is drastically more severe possibly even irreversible. The possibility that mental decline may occur across all ages requires that you support healthy adult brain function, regardless of age or circumstance.

Sobering numbers. Our world is getting older. The Earth’s population of people over 60 will soar to an estimated two billion by 2050!  About half of the over 50 population admits to some form of memory loss. Our growing and rapidly aging population is likely to see a matching rise in age-related cognitive decline.

Our brains are burning out. As we age, our brain health declines naturally go through physical and functional changes that impair our memory, our ability to learn and our capacity to retain new information. This natural decline in cognitive function is the result of reduced cell activity and oxidative stress that further accelerates brain aging causing further cognitive decline.

Brain Health Suffering

Life in the 21st century has become complicated. Today, we all have too many distractions, with too little time and not enough of ourselves to go around. Most of us are getting up too early and going to bed far too late if at all. These heightened levels of stress and worry, coupled with lack of restful slumber are destroying the one organ you can never reclaim once it’s lost. Your brain.

Brain Health SupportThat’s why we’ve created the Isagenix Brain and Sleep Support System; a total brain health and sleep support program that complements our existing Isagenix whole-body wellness lifestyle. It combines two powerful and effective products engineered to promote optimal brain function and normal sleep cycles.

The proven power of vigorous brain-boosting nutrients combined with a powerful melatonin and nutrient complex spray, makes the Isagenix® Brain and Sleep Support System an ideal way to achieve restful sleep while supporting healthy brain function. It’s a total brain and sleep support system that puts you and your concerns to rest.

The Isagenix Brain and Sleep Support System is the first of its kind in the world to address the comprehensive problems of cognitive decline and poor sleep.

Brain Boost & Renewal contains potent doses of ingredients designed to increase cognitive function and support cerebral blood flow. Formulated by Dr. Michael Colgan, this proprietary formulation is a comprehensive neuroprotective tool for promoting healthy aging and improved brain function.

Sleep Support & Renewal is a unique, drug-free formula free from troubling side effects such as tolerance, dependency, withdrawal symptoms or next-day drowsiness. Unlike other melatonin products, Sleep Support & Renewal contains a proprietary blend, including the relaxing agent L-theanine that supports mental clarity and focus.

The two products were both developed to address specific health trends identified as severe obstacles on our path toward healthy, youthful aging and optimal brain health. By combining the benefits of Brain Boost & Renewal with the positive, potent effects of Sleep Support & Renewal, along with a Isagenix nutritional cleansing and replenishing system, you get the combined advantage of having a total brain-boosting and sleep-supporting nutrient infusion that will go a long way in promoting a healthy aging lifestyle.

Optimizing Brain Nutrition

In collaboration with Isagenix scientists, my research has focussed on brain nutrition.  We reviewed more than 1,000 recent animal studies and human clinical trials that have identified a number of individual nutrients that support different parts of brain function. A few of these trials have found combinations of nutrients that work synergistically.  That is, combining the nutrients multiplies their power to support brain function beyond the use of individual nutrients alone. Unlike other companies, who have focussed on one or two individual nutrients to support one or two brain functions, we have sought the best synergistic combinations.

From the most significant research we have devised synergistic combinations of eight nutrients to provide potent and wide ranging support of the multiple brain structures and functions discussed above. We have completed 60-day pilot clinical trials on normal human subjects with the best three formulations we could devise.  Using standardized tests of mental focus, concentration, decision making, and memory, all three trials showed positive effects.  One formulation proved slightly better, and we selected that as the basis of the new Isagenix Brain Support

It is designed to provide nutrition for optimum brain health, and also specifically designed to complement IsaLean Shakes, and Ageless Essentials with Product B

There is no other product comparable to Isagenix Brain and Sleep Support System available anywhere.
