Berries of life, fruit of longevity. Goji berries are a vine fruit. Are they actually conducive to a healthy and long life?
Known for thousands of years
The Mongolians and Tibetans have had goji bushes for more than 5,000 years. A strong red color, pleasant taste and incredible nutritional value are enough reasons to extend their shelf life by drying them until you get a small raisin. Chinese legends say that drinking soup or tea brewed with these berries will provide us with a very long life.
Researchers studying the healing properties of the plant have identified in the goji berries huge amounts of nutrients that allow them to enjoy long life and health. They have a number of therapeutic properties, nourish, strengthen the body and help cope with stress by regulating adrenal glands. Chinese medicine speaks of the harmonious properties of berries that guarantee sexual potency, strength, growth, immunity and longevity.
Goji berries are the most nutritious fruit in the world. They contain nineteen different amino acids, including phenylalanine, adrenal support, and tryptophan, which produces serotonin. They are a source of complete protein, contain 21 trace elements and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. They are not used as a remedy, but rather as a nutritional product. They can be helpful in the treatment of chronic diseases, liver and kidney disorders, spinal problems, headaches, tinnitus, insomnia, hypertension and impotence.
During aging, the body produces less growth hormone (HGH). Goji fruit is the only product that naturally stimulates HGH production. A 70-year-old man produces only 1/10 of hormones produced by energetic 20-year-olds. They are responsible for physical changes, muscular atrophy, fat deposition and less vital force. Goji berries also contain sesquiterpene compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties and stimulate the pituitary gland and the pineal gland to produce growth hormone.
It’s important to consume natural and organic fruits. Those that come from chemical farms and are sprayed with pesticides don’t bring anything good into our lives. They can be devoid of nutritional value and in addition poison the body.
