Many health studies have focused on the numerous direct benefits of a plant-based diet high in portions vegetables and fruits. In addition to more well-known fruits and juices such as pomegranate juice, blueberries, cranberry juice, tomatoes, green tea, coco powder and raw cacao, Goji berries have been shown to be rich sources of beneficial antioxidants and other nutrients people in general need to have more of in their diets on a daily basis.
Goji berries and Goji Berry Juice have been undergoing scrutiny lately as a potential drug for cancer in both Mongolia and Japan. Goji berries are thought to kill many kinds of cancer cells in vitro and contains 124 ppm of organic Germanium, which has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties. In fact, Japanese studies indicate that organic Germanium is effective in treating liver cancer, lung cancer, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, and testicular cancer when combined with other drugs. Germanium possesses the power to take the hydrogen ion from cancer cells which can cause depression and even death to the cancer cells.
The Tibetan Goji berry has also been tested as an anti-obesity drug. In patients who were given 30 grams of Goji tea each morning and each afternoon, results were excellent, with most patients losing what has been described as significant weight.
The Goji berry also contains polysaccharides which have been demonstrated to strengthen and fortify the immune system. Tibetan Gojis are also very rich in vitamins C and B. Additionally, GOjis are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta carotene, of all known plants on earth and are thus a powerful antioxidant. It is believed to fortify the immune system against disease and to provide the energy to help overcome difficult health conditions.
Chemical analysis and clinical study has found that the Tibetan Goji berry helps to protect liver function, replenish vital essences, improve vision, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, strengthen muscles and bones, burn fat, bring energy to the heart and work as an aid to treat diabetes and impotence. Goji contains a high concentration of the branched chain amino acid (BCCA) L-Leucine among its 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, linoleic acid, thiamine, riboflavin and betaine. In addition, Tibetan Goji Berries have more beta carotene than carrots and 500 times more vitamin E by weight than oranges. They have significant amounts of Vitamins Bl, B2. B6 and Vitamin E. They have also been found affective in increasing white blood cells, protecting the liver and relieving hypertension.
The Tibetan Goji Berry also contains superoxide dismutase, phenylpropaniods, anti cancer inhibiting factors and anti senility factors. Its amino acids forms the building block of a very unique compound called HMB (Beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) and through the phenylpropabiod activity, this berry converts leucine into HMB. HMB lowers total and LDL cholesterol levels in blood and can help strengthen the immune system while building muscle tissue and burning body fat.
Of course it’s not all good as the Tibetan Goji Berries can be difficult to obtain and can be expensive as compared to other, more-traditional fruits such as bananas and oranges. However, because of the promising scientific research surrounding them, Tibetan Goji Berries deserve a close look by anyone wishing to maintain optimum physical and mental health.
