Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Goji berries, also known as wolfberries, are bright orange-red in color and come from a bush native to China.

They are extraordinarily rich in antioxidants, primarily  Vitamin AVitamin B2 (Riboflavin), and Vitamin C, all of which are known to prevent cell damage and lessen your risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The Riboflavin contained in goji berries is important for glucose (sugar) metabolism, the health of eye tissue, skin tissue and the mucous membranes of the respiratory system. Vitamin A is vital for maintaining healthy tissues as well as supporting the immune system, bone development, eye health and protecting nerve fibers.

And of course, Vitamin C is necessary for improved immune function, healthy gums, and collagen formation for healthy skin and connective tissues.

The Longevity Properties of The Goji Berries

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the kidneys (or the “energy” of the kidneys) are essentially the vitality of life. In other words, they are considered The Fountain of Youth. 

Kidney Qi (energy) is the initial Qi necessary to give us life at birth, and as we grow the Kidney Qi is fortified by how we live:

  • The nourishment we consume
  • How we move our body
  • How well we rest
  • And our thoughts and emotions  

It is believed that the nourishment from goji berries strengthen the Kidney Qi and help balance the body.

Li Ching-Yuen, an herbalist and martial artist from China, allegedly had one of the oldest lifespans ever recorded. There is no real proof, however, as to the exact number of years he lived, though there are some sources that put him as old as 197 and others as old as 256!

Whether these claims are true or not there is one thing that has been agreed upon, he lived well beyond the age of 100.

He said this about life,

And if you think about it, this is exactly what is necessary for strong Kidney Qi!
