Understanding Goji Berry
For more than two thousand years traditional healers in China have goji berry, also known as wolfberry or lycium for a variety health issues. The goji berry has been used to treat everything from male fertility issues, to relieve lower back pain, vision problems, dry skin and dry cough.
Seeing how the Chinese healer use goji berry has not been enough for the Western world. The Western medical world has yet to accept or prove/disprove the health benefits of goji berry. While there have been both animal and test tube studies conducted, there has not been a large scale human research study completed with goji berry use.
It is believed however that the nutritional value of goji berry, coupled with its antioxidant properties does support health benefits. The exact cases of how to best use goji is still to be determined. The use of goji berry is considered safe for all to consume as it does contain many essential vitamins and minerals.
Antioxidant Properties of Goji Berry
The natural defenders our trillions of cells are antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that have the ability to protect our cells from disease by eliminating free radicals and other elements that are damaging to our cells. High levels of antioxidants protecting cells have been proven to reduce many aging diseases; diseases such as heart disease from blood vessel damage.
Goji berry contains high levels of antioxidant activity. Through a comparison of antioxidant activity 500 mg of goji berry has much more antioxidant activity than that of vitamin C. In addition to the high level of antioxidant activity, goji berry is also an excellent source of zeaxanthin.
Zeaxanthin is a special antioxidant that has been linked to eye health. It is because of goji berry's content of zeaxanthin that Western medicine believes goji berry has, an continues to be used to treat proper eye health.
Goji Berry's Effort to Fight Cancer
With all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants contained within goji berry, there is also one special item that may help the fight against cancer. Goji berry contains a polysaccharide that appears to have anti-tumor capabilities.
Through in vitro research, it has been shown that goji berry inhibited the growth of breast cancer cells. The goji berry was able to induce an apoptosis within the cancer cells; a self-destruct mechanism with in the cancer cells. Also while inducing the apoptosis in the cancer cells, goji berry was also able to increase immune system response and further the body to rid itself of the cancer cells.
It must be noted that this research is in its infancy and by no means does this mean that goji berries are a cure for cancer. If you or someone you know is undergoing cancer treatments and are investigating the use of goji to help in the battle against cancer, please speak with your doctor first.
Goji Berry Helps with Diabetes and High Cholesterol
Dealing with diabetes and high cholesterol can prove to be difficult for many people. In some cases, individuals have to deal with both conditions at the same time. There is however a component found in goji berry that can help these conditions.
Beta-sitosterols are found in abundance within goji berries which actually work on the intestinal tract. The beta-sitosterols help to reduce absorption rate within the intestines. This reduced absorption rates helps to lower cholesterol as well as to improve overall blood sugar levels.
Additional Goji Berry Uses
As the research continues on the human health benefits of goji berry use, there are substances that have been found within goji berry that show promise for having long term human health benefits.
Through animal research, goji berries have been found to contain a specific enzyme which can protect the liver. Goji berry protects the liver from toxins and other forms of damage by lowering an enzyme within the liver when it is stressed.
In addition to protecting the liver, goji berry may also provide neurological protection.
