For the last several thousand years, goji berries have been revered as a superfood in Asian cultures for the promotion of longevity. In Chinese herbalism, goji is known for its role as a yin jing tonic to strengthen the blood and revitalize the body. Today, goji berries have grown in prominence for their youth-preserving, health-improving, and mood-elevating properties.
Goji berries are extremely rich in beta-carotene, which gives credence to the long-held belief that goji berries improve eyesight. Their phytochemicals have been shown to fight free radicals and protect the DNA of our cells. Goji berries have also been used to strengthen the back, tonify the sexual and reproductive functions, and help restore yin energy to the kidney and liver energy channels.
The organic goji powder in Berry Bliss Protein + Superfood Blend, Coconut Bliss, + Berry Bee, combined with medicinal tea, oat milk, and ashwagandha, makes a beautifully healing tonic that supports the nervous system, strengthens immunity, and boosts energy levels.
