Dating back approximately two thousand years goji berries have long been considered a key to longevity. It is alleged that the famous Chinese herbalist Li Ching Yuen, who regularly consumed goji berries lived to be 256 years of age. He was born in 1677 or 1736 with disputing records on file. While either date seems unlikely, Li Ching Yuen was a real person and he did live to be freaking old!
Rich in Vit C, selenium, calcium, zinc and 15 times the iron found in spinach, goji berries are the most nutritionally dense fruit on the plant. Their powerful antioxident properties help prevent diseases. Considered blood builders, goji berries add a powerful immune boosting punch to your diet.
Organic goji berries are the highest quality and do not contain pesticides. You can add them to cereals, smoothies or make a tea by adding the berries to your favourite brew with some honey.
Caution: like most foods moderation is key. If you are trying to get pregnant or expecting it is recommended to use goji berries in moderation. Due to their energising properties, goji berries are best consumed during the day or no later than 3 hours before bed.
