For thousands of years, goji berries have been an Asian medicine food. This amazing berry has up to 300 times more vitamin C than oranges, 15 times more nutritional iron than spinach, 6 times more amino acids than bee pollen, more beta carotene than carrots, extremely high levels of antioxidants, significant immune system boosting capabilities, much resulting from 4 unique polysaccharides, and one of these having the potential of stimulating the increased production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). HGH is the master hormone in the body that communicates with the other hormones to function better as we grow older. When HGH levels increase, sometimes symptoms of aging are slowed down, and occasionally even reversed.
Goji berries also have 21 trace minerals, including cancer fighting selenium and germanium. Some studies have shown increased T-cell production in some HIV positive patients. Some diabetics have experienced a lowering of their insulin dependency. Blood work results have shown significant improvements in many areas as well. Perhaps the most amazing thing about the berries are the lifespan extension improvements amongst those who eat them on a regular basis.
