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.
