Usage And Benefits
The TIBETAN GOJI BERRIES is regarded in Tibet
as the Fruit of longevity and well being. It is very high in ion
anti-oxidants and has health-giving properties. Peoples moods
brighten, they sleep better and some even experience increased
According to Legend, Goji berries (Lycium Eleganus) were discovered by a doctor during his study of an ancient society living in a remote region of the Himalayas in Tibet. He found that some members of this society lived long lives over 100 years old in great health and strength. They had no grey hair, and never lost their teeth.
Eventually he recognized that all of these centenarians lived near certain water well's where the Goji
berry vines grew over the top of the well!. As the ripe berries
fell into the wells, their nutrients dissolved in the water and
was subsequently drunk by the people living nearby. It became
clear that the berries added something to the water that made
those who drank it robustly healthy and live to a ripe old age.
This legend is further supported by the life of famed Li Qing Yuen, who lived to the age of 252 years (1678-1930). Li Qing Yuen consumed Goji berries daily, some sources indicate that Goji Berries were his main source of food. The life of Li Qing Yuen is the most well-documented case of extreme longevity known, with a featured documentary in the prestigious National Geographic magazine in 1930.
Goji berries are so honored as a longevity food that to this day, there is an annual two-week festival to celebrate its many health-giving properties.
Dr. Earl Mindell, pharmacist, herbalist and professor of nutrition at Pacific Western University in LA, believes that as consumption increases, Tibetan Goji
berries will have more powerful benefits on health, well-being
and anti-aging than any other producthe has seen in years.
Goji berries have been traditionally regarded
as a longevity, strength-building, and sexual potency food of
the highest order. In several study groups with elderly people
the berry was given once a day for 3 weeks, many beneficial
results were experienced and 67% of the patients T cell
transformation functions tripled and the activity of the
patients white cell interleukin-2 doubled. In addition, the
results showed that all the patients spirit and optimism
increased significantly, appetite improved in 95% of the
patients, 95% of the patients slept better, and 35% of the
patients experienced improved sexual function.

Mature fruits contain about 11 mg of iron per 100 grams, beta-sisterol (an anti-inflammatory agent), linoleic acid (a fatty acid), sesquiterpenoids (cyperone, solavetivone), tetraterpenoids (zeaxanthin, physalin), and betaine (0.1%).
Goji berries contain polysaccharides which fortify the immune system. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be a powerful secretagogue (a substance that stimulates the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone by the pituitary gland).
The Tibetan Goji berry (Lycium Eleganus) is considered to be the most potent of the many varieties of the botanical Lycium,. It grows in the remote, unpolluted hills and valleys of Tibet and Mongolia in extremely nutrient-rich soil without chemicals or pesticides, and is recognized as having the highest nutrient content of all the 80 varieties of Lycium.
It is not to be confused with the Chinese Wolfberry (Lycium barbarum) which, though distantly related to the Goji, has a different genetic make-up and grows in a different environment.
The plants grow like bushes with vines that reach over 15 feet. The berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, then dried in the shade. These berries are wild-crafted in accord with the most stringent organic growing standards, hence contain, we believe, more nutrient energy than other cultivated varieties, such as the Wolfberry.
