What are Wolfberries?

Wolfberries are the bright red, one-third to three-quarter inch fruit of the wolfberry plant.  Of the eighty different species of wolberries wolrdwide, the Lycium barbarum from Ningxia, China, as the variety used in NingXia Red.  Called “goji” in their native china, wolberries have a long tradition of use in folk medicine.

Ancient Chinese medical texts extolled wolfberries for strengthening the eyes, liver, and kidneys as well as fortifying the “qi” (chi), or “life force.”

An early medical work, Shen Nung Ben Tsao (475-221 B.C.), sited benefits for wolberries ranging from replenishing vital essences to strengthening and restoring major organs.*

The physician’s handbook, Ben Cao Gan Mu, written during the Ming dynasty (*1368-1644 A.D.), stated, “Taking in Chinese wolfberry regularly may regulate the flow of vital energy and strengthen the physique, which can lead to longevity.”

 According to other Chinese texts, wolfberries:

  • nourish the yin
  • support the blood, kidneys, and liver*
  • strengthen the eyes*
  • fortify muscles and bones*

Wolfberry-A national treasure in China

The good health and vitality of the elderly in Ningxia, China, has long been attributed to wolfberries.  A bowl of fresh wolfberries a day is part of daily life in Ningxia.  And a yearly two-week festival in Ningxia celebrates the wolfberry and the amazing health benefits of the fruit, which is considered a national treasure.

The Ningxia Wolfberry Today

A strong body of modern scientific evidence supports the wolfberry’s legendary reputation.
Ancient references cited the wolfberry’s ability to aid and protect the pancreas.* And modern Chinese scientists have determined that the wolfberry polysaccharide has “definite protective effects” on the pancreas cells that regulate the body’s insulin system, the islets of Langerhans.*
Other researchers have determined that substances found in wolfberries have “prominent hepatoprotective activity,” meaning that they help protect the liver.*
Studies done in Beijing, China, show wolfberries to be effective in inhibiting inflammation and that they 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 other studies that correlate increased spleen weight and improved immunological function.
Domestic and Foreign magazine published a story in the 1950s about the great herbal master Li Qingyun who lived more than 200 years and died in 1930. Li attributed his longevity to taking five grams of wolfberries every day. Li said, “From then on I became healthy and agile. I can walk a hundred li (a li equals half a kilometer) and not feel tired. I became better in strength and stamina than the average person.”
As studies continue, the science is clear-this remarkable fruit provides an abundance of health benefits!*
