Some areas of the world a life expectancy of more than 100 years is common. These different cultures often have far lower rates of degenerative and chronic diseases that are so common today in our society, where as in China, Mongolia and Tibet the Goji Berry (also known as Wolfberries) is regarded highly for longevity and strength building food.

Goji berries are an extremely nutrient-dense fruit. Gojiâ€™s contain more iron than spinach, more beta carotene than carrots, and more protein than whole wheat (13%) plus goji berries are one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world. They contain 18 amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) including all 8 essential amino acids. They contain 13% protein, and 328 calories per 100g!
The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the size as a raisin. It’s reasonably sweet and tastes something like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry. We love adding them to smoothies, trail-mix, cereals, teas and cakes. Try mixing 10-15 Goji berries into your tea or just add to boiled water
Goji berries contain up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus) and are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants on earth!
Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.
Mature fruits contain about 11 mg or 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).
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 partially recovered their sexual function.
