Gojiberries are a rare case of a terrific legend, only exceeded by its modern scientific reality. It is very exciting to see the massive body of modern scientific evidence that is verifying the wolfberry's legendary reputation.
For example, multiple ancient references cited the gojiberry's ability to aid and protect the pancreas, which they considered of great value.
Modern Chinese scientists have determined that the wolfberry/gojiberry polysaccharide has "definite protective effects"
on the pancreas cells that regulate our body's insulin system, the "islets of Langerhans."
Other researchers have determined that special substances found in gojiberries have "prominent hepatoprotective activity,"
meaning that they help protect the liver.
These are just a few of the marvelous studies that help confirm what ancient tradition held true. The following is a sampling of how the gojiberry/wolfberry is securing a strong following of researchers and physicians working with modern medicinal and nutritional theory.
Healthy Juice - Most Powerful Antioxidant
The NingXia wolfberry is considered to be a wide-spectrum antioxidant, meaning it does more than just protect the body against a single "free-radical." (Free radicals in the body damage cells, proteins, and DNA by altering their chemical structure.)
NingXia Red's capacity to absorb four of the most prevalent free radicals found in the human body is superior. Specifically, its capacity to absorb the superoxide free radical, the most abundant free radical in the human body, is many times more effective than the closest competing health drink!
Immune System Support
Wolfberries have been shown to provide assistance to immunity. Studies done in a hospital in Beijing, China, have shown gojiberries to be effective in inhibiting inflammation and may induce an immune response.
A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association concluded, "Wolfberry juice and its mixtures were shown to have immunomodulatory effects ... by increasing splenic (spleen) microphages and splenic weight."
There are a number of studies that correlate increased spleen weight and improved immunological function. As studies continue, the science is clear — this remarkable fruit has an abundance of health benefits!
"When one understands that there are only a few mechanisms underlying all disease, then it is extremely simple to see why NingXia Red is so effective for practically all organ systems."
