What are Goji Berries?
Scientists have found the Goji Berry to be one of the most nutritionally dense fruits on earth. Goji berries, also called wolf berries, have been grown in the Himalayan valley for hundreds of years. Traditional Chinese folk medicine uses them to cure a variety of ailments. Goji berries have also long been used in various Asian dishes as an ingredient or a garnish.
What do Goji Berries do?
DNA Protection: Damage to our DNA opens the door to every imaginable disease and accelerates ageing. In the course of living, our DNA is damaged by free radicals generated as a byproduct of normal metabolism and by exposure to toxins. Although our bodies are equipped to continually repair themselves, they can become overwhelmed by too many free radicals, especially as we age. This results in the premature death of healthy cells, which may contribute to a variety of degenerative diseases.
Sexual Health: Diminished sexual function is not an inevitable part of ageing. A lower sex drive in both men and women can be associated with decreased production of testosterone. Goji berries can help by increasing its production. In Asia, goji berries are traditionally regarded as a strong sexual tonic. In addition, goji acts as a general tonic to improve overall stamina, mood and well-being. It can also help to decrease stress. All of these benefits are conducive to a healthy sex life.
Energy: The goji berry strengthens the system while helping the body to deal with stress without collapsing. It also supports healthy function of the adrenal glands, which tend to get overworked in times of stress. The goji is believed to harmonise functions of the entire body, resulting in enhanced stamina, strength and energy.
Eye Health: The goji berry contains two key nutrients for healthy vision: zeaxanthin and lutein. These are concentrated at the center of the retina and protect the eye from the most common causes of age-related loss of sight, including macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. Free radicals also attack the eyes, and zeaxanthin and lutein protect against such damage. Animal research in China has shown that eating goji berries can reduce free radical damage of the retina.
Weight Loss: Goji berries have characteristics that help control blood sugar and appetite. They contain 21 percent fibre by weight. High fibre foods are filling and moderate blood sugar levels. The berries are also a good source of chromium, a mineral that aids in blood sugar control. Chromium may also help to preserve lean muscle mass during weight loss. Muscle burns more calories than fat, promoting a more efficient metabolism, which makes it easier to prevent weight gain. Goji Berries contain special polysaccharides which fortify your immune system and are responsible for controlling your body’s most important defence systems. Scientists attribute most of goji’s amazing health properties to these special polysaccharides.
Goji berries are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. One of zeaxanthin’s key roles is to protect the retina of the eye by absorbing blue light and acting as an antioxidant. In fact, increased intake of zeathanthin may decrease the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in people over the age of 65. Goji Berries contain 19 amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein, including all eight essential for life. No other plant can make that claim. And they are a better source of Vitamin C than oranges, lemons or limes.
Goji berries also include:
- B-complex Vitamins
- Vitamin E
- Essential fatty acids

Aloe Vera contains a variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids. In particular, Aloe Vera is a source of mucopolysaccharides, also known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are thought to be its active component. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the ability of aloe to support the healing process. In addition, Aloe Vera has been shown to support a healthy digestive system. May improve stomach disorders, ulcers, indigestion, haemorrhoids, itching in the rectum, and colitis.
