HISTORY OF USE
Healing properties of Lycium barbarum /Goji Berry/ are well-known for millennia in China. Ancient medicine book “Tractate for herbs and their properties” took a special attention to Goji Berry. It is written that its fruits restore the depots of body liquids, calms the soil, revitalize the skin and strengthen the vision. In another Chinese classic book “Herbs and food healing” is written that the Goji strengthen the muscles and tendons, protects from illness and lead to long living.
MYTHS & LEGENDS
Chinese herbalist Li Qing Yuen who is said to have lived from 1677 to 1933 (256 years) on a diet consisting largely of the berries. While it is likely that this is only legend, there are supposedly extant documents issued from the Chinese Imperial government which congratulate Li Qing Yuen on his 150th and 200th birthdays.
