Goji has an incredible history as a medicinal food in China and Tibet and is considered one of the most sacred ingredients in Chinese Medicine.
Goji berries were used consistently for thousands of years to balance yin and yang, restore vitality and improve skin and vision.
Goji was also thought to extend lifespan and was a primary rejuvenating ingredient in Chinese medicine. Modern science has uncovered some of Goji’s chemical qualities (like unique long-chain polysaccharides) found in no other food. Long-chain polysaccharides are thought to act as master chemicals which control the body’s physiology – supporting recovery from exercise, balancing blood sugar levels, supporting the skin’s natural defence from sun damage and inflammation. The phytochemical properties in Goji are also thought to support the body’s natural defence against cancer.
