Flu-Busting Berries (part 3)


This cherished superfood is both a fruit and a herb – and rated number one in Chinese medicine. They typically contain two to four times the amount of antioxidants found in blueberries.

Applying the doctrine of signatures: Because of the goji berry’s incredible nutrient profile, the Greeks called it Lyceum barbarum, translated as ‘School of Learning’ – the Chinese believed that this little berry contained so much wisdom, that if someone were to eat it every day, they would download the entire Chinese medicine system.

Goji berries:

- Are high in immune-enhancing nutrients: vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, antioxidants, carotenoids and trace minerals (said to contain more than 21 trace minerals!)

- Contain beta-sistosteral and betaine which can help prevent colds and flu

- Are anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

Goji Berry Healing Tea: warm up & fight off the flu by adding and soaking 10-15 goji berries in a tea pot. Use a base of peppermint, wild berry or strong rooibos tea. Goji’s will release polysaccharides into your tea.

Gojis are also:

- A precursor for HGH (Human Growth Hormone)

- Are great demulcents – they release substances which soothe the epithelial lining of the colon (much like aloe)

- A complete protein – builds blood and stabilises blood sugar levels. Contains 19 different amino acids and all eight essential amino acids

- Contain ‘healing sugars’ called polysaccharides – excellent replacement for honey in tea when you have cancer or fungal infections.

- The Chinese add goji berries to almost every dish and cup of tea – they release the healing sugars – and are naturally one of the BEST DIGESTIVE ENZYMES.

- Great for eyesight – many people have combined goji’s with Omega three, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin, lutein and eye exercises, in order to improve their eyesight and diminish the use of glasses.

These small, power-packed “Blues and Flu-Busting Berries” offer fun and exciting ways to improve your health and allow you to effortlessly sail through the cold winter months.

Wishing you a berry nice, healthy winter

    Goji berries are great but I lived in China for 2 years and although I’ve seen Gojis in shops I have never actually seen anyone eat them or have them in tea.. nor was it in anything I ate or drank.
