Goji Berry (Lycium barbarum) is also commonly known as Wolfberry. Like many of the herbs and natural supplements that have been found in Asia, Goji Berry is known to have many positive effects for people who want to promote overall body health. Goji has been around for more than 6,000 years and during that time, its virtues have been explored in various tests. Scientists have found that people can benefit greatly from the use of Goji for a number of reasons, which confirms the beliefs of the Chinese herbalists who have used the berry for decades to treat people with a host of different ailments.
A clinical study carried out on 79 cancer patients in 1994, found that a combination of immunotherapy with Lycium Barbarum polysaccharides (found in goji berries) was more successful in treating patients with various forms of cancer than those who received immunotherapy alone.
Goji berries contain vitamin C,as well as vitamin B2, vitamin A, iron and selenium. The test tube experiments found that Goji Berry was good for promoting proper cell growth and the antioxidants found within it were very powerful in disease prevention. One of the interesting finds was that Goji could help lower glucose levels in individuals and also lower cholesterol in some people.
The antioxidants in goji berries boost immune function and can improve long-term health. Having to constantly fight off cold or the flu can weigh on the body and make life difficult for people. In order to stay healthy for longer, the body has to stay sharp and this can only happen when you are free of disease. In this way, vitality and long term function is increased by Goji Berry, for those who wish to take an holistic approach to their health.
What does Goji Berry improve specifically?
There are many different areas that have shown improvement because of the use of this treatment, which comes with a pretty high price tag in China. The price is justified by the fact that Goji does so much for the body and most people see it is an investment in their long term health. The antioxidants within Goji are most well known for fighting off disease within the liver. For people who want to protect their liver in the face of alcohol or drug use, the berry supplements can be especially helpful.
Likewise, there are some small, subsidiary effects that have come along with Goji Berry. Improved eyesight is thought to be a positive effect, while increased leg strength is, as well. This promotes the theory that the berry helps to improve the body as a whole, instead of just helping to improve any one particular area. With this knowledge, people have been much more likely to try Goji as a part of their daily routine. Those who use it daily have found that Goji increases their energy levels to a point where they feel more able and much more refreshed than in the past.
Goji Berry as a sexual enhancer
Though its primary role is in preventing disease, Goji Berry has also been found to help increase fertility in women and help improve sexual function in men. One reason for this is that it improves circulation throughout the body, allowing people to perform at their peak in a host of different activities. Sexual activity is one of those and although it is a nice side effect, it is not the focus of Goji Berry.
All in all, Goji is popular not just for one purpose, but because it helps to improve the body in lots of different ways. The tests have shown that it has significant power to both prevent and help cure diseases such as cancer, while other tests have proven Goji to be an effective holistic treatment. Total body health and keeping in tune for the long run is a concern for most, so it figures that those people would want to use Goji to not only lengthen life, but improve the quality of their life.
La medicina tradizionale cinese attribuisce alle bacche di goji, nonché alla corteccia, alle radici e alle foglie della stessa pianta, numerose proprietà curative e preventive. Già nell’antico manuale di erboristeria Shennong Ben Cao Jing la pianta viene citata come curativa per una serie di mali e anche efficace per fortificare muscoli e ossa e rallentare l’invecchiamento.
Tuttavia gli studi scientifici in merito sono carenti. Per questo motivo, si ritiene che gli effetti benefici non siano sufficientemente provati, anche se è riconosciuta la presenza di sostanze potenzialmente utili.
Uno studio cinese condotto sui topi ha riscontrato che le bacche di goji potenziano la capacità antiossidante dell’organismo come dimostrato dall’innalzamento degli enzimi superossido dismutasi (SOD), catalasi (CAT) e glutatione perossidasi (GSH-Px). L’attività antiossidante è risultata essere comparabile a quella della vitamina C.
Uno studio condotto ad Hong Kong nei primi anni duemila ha evidenziato come la zeaxantina contenuta nelle bacche di Goji sia ben assorbibile dall’organismo umano; gli autori suggerivano, nel 2004, la necessità di ulteriori studi su strategie dietetiche per contrastare la degenerazione maculare senile.
I possibili effetti avversi sono considerati improbabili, eccetto per specifiche casistiche. In particolare, l’atropina, una sostanza velenosa presente nei frutti di varie specie della stessa famiglia, è presente in quantità minime.
Si può consumare fresca, appena raccolta. Oggi le bacche di goji sono presenti anche nel mercato occidentale, essiccate o in concentrato miscelato con altri prodotti quali succhi di frutta, yogurt, tè, merendine, barrette, marmellate. Il loro sapore è paragonabile a quello del mirtillo, uva passa, lampone e fragola. Una dose media è rappresentata da circa 20 grammi giornalieri.
