Goji or wolf berries from NingXia
Goji berry contains a large amount of vitamins, such as vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin B1, B3. It is rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and carotenoids such as zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin; polysaccharides (proteoglycans: LBP1, LBP2, LBP3 and LBP4); amino acids (e.g., amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids, amino acids).B. isoleucine, methionine); minerals and trace elements (such as zinc, calcium, germanium, selenium, iron, copper, nickel, chromium, magnesium, sodium, potassium) and other nutritionally valuable secondary plant compounds (flavonoids, terpenes).
It is not by chance that the goji berry is called “the most nutritious fruit on the planet” or “the most powerful antioxidant in the world”.
According to legend, a Goji bush was located above a well in Tibet. The villagers who drank the water from this well all looked especially youthful, which was attributed to the goji berry. This story says that even “goji berry water” is good to drink and apparently gives people youthfulness.
I do not want to belittle this beautiful saga of the Tibetan goji berry. But today, as an enlightened European, one should know that Dr. Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils in Utah, USA, and the first and largest importer of the legendary NingXia goji berry from China, has made extensive research trips to Tibet to uncover the roots of the goji berry saga in Tibet.
He could not find any evidence of cultivation or harvesting of the goji berry in Tibet. No one knew the goji berry. Even the Dalai Lama, the guardian of Tibetan plants and herbs, was unaware of the goji berry.
Other statements about the goji berry claim that these berries are credited with the long life expectancy of the Hunzas. The fact is that only a few years ago the Hunza people were a thriving image of longevity and creativity centenarians.
Dr. Gary Young has visited these people in his search for the secret of longevity, talked to them, studied them, and has been able to see for himself. But when he went on another expedition through the legendary Hunzaland only a few years later, the ancients had died and gradually the old legend of the long-lived Hunza people died as well, not least because “civilization” had finally taken hold in Hunzaland.
But the goji berry is still considered in Central Asia as the fruit of longevity and well-being. Its properties are described as long youth and beauty, energy, strength and endurance, and vital creative spirit. The goji berry is also known and appreciated as an aphrodisiac in many parts of the world. In Holywood a real run has broken out among the stars for the small red berry or the juice from it. It is reported that Mick Jagger – the star of “The Rolling Stones” – is eager to become a father once again and is getting fit for child number eight.
As reported by the “BILD” newspaper, so far his attempts with his current girlfriend L’Wren Scott have been in vain. Now he wants to bring the necessary “parts” with a special diet up to speed. The meanwhile 64 years old Mick Jagger eats at present each quantities of avocados and drinks enormous amounts of Goji-Juice around with these Vitaminbomben on front man to come. This reputation has preceded the goji berry for several centuries. I wonder if this is why it is called the “lucky” berry?
The benefits of the “lucky” goji berry for health and well-being is a 5,000-year-old Chinese tradition that has continued to this day. For every year in NingXia, China, a colorful and joyous national holiday is celebrated in honor of the legendary NingXia goji berry or wolfberry. The goji berry is celebrated on this day with dances and grateful festivities and takes center stage. Modern science is also beginning to take an interest in this unique goji berry.
As Dr. Gary Young was the first Western scientist to gain access to the secret internal research of Beijing University on the extraordinary effects of the NingXia Goji Berry on human well-being, and his book, “The Discovery of the Ultimate Superfruit” was published – the first comprehensive book on the Goji Berry – made the research world sit up and take notice. Follow the centuries-old call of the NingXia Goji berry as a precious gift of nature. Dr. Gary Young has made it his mission to bring this „Young“fountain of nature to your table in the form of his NingXia Red Goji Juice.
