Goji Berry is known as the “Fountain of Youth” or “Wolfberry”. It is native to China. It has been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer. It can be consumed in forms of tea, juices, wines or medicines as well as being applied to skin. Chinese manuscripts say it restores the depots of body liquids, calm the soil, revitalises the skin and strengthens vision. It was praised by the poet Liv Joncy (618-907) during the Tan Dynasty to help you live longer . 1578 – Li Shudjun (phyto-therapist China) mentioned that the people from the berry growing village Nanchu all lived to be over 100 years old (folk history). Tea with Goji berries was drunk to increase female beauty and male sexual vitality. It is mentioned in Tibetan manuscripts, having been used in folk medicine for at least 1700 years. There is an annual celebration in it’s honour. Legend has it that Professor Qing Yven of China was born in 1678 and died in 1930 at 252 years old. This is documented by the Chinese government as fact. He ate Goji berries on a daily basis.
