Goji berries, sometimes called Wolfberries, are perhaps the most
nutritionally-rich fruit on the planet. Goji berries contain 18 kinds of
amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain all 8
essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan).
Goji berries contain up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones being zinc,
iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus).
Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids, including
beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or
plants on earth! They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by
weight, than oranges making them second only to camu camu berries as the
richest vitamin C source on earth. Goji berries also contain vitamins
B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.
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).
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
The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a
raisin. The Goji berry tastes somewhat like a cross between a cranberry
and a cherry.
A good daily intake of Goji berries is 10-30 grams (a small handful).
Goji berries may be used as snacks or mixed with recipes or smoothies
like other dried fruits.
