Wolfberry, the Chinese Berry that Brings Longevity and Health

Do you believe there might be secret places, secret climates, and secret foods on the Earth that hold the secret of longevity? One legendary berry, which has been accredited with enabling people to live for more than a 100 years, has recently been brought to the attention of Western scientists. The story of this berry remained a secret in Mongolia for millennium, but was revealed to US researcher Gary Young by Chinese Professor Chao in 1996, and is now available to the public.

The Wolfberry is a tasty red berry that grows in the fertile flood plains of Mongolia. Nurtured by mineral rich waters flowing down from the Himalayas, the tiny fruit has been called an amazing source of longevity and health; the astounding facts speak for themselves. People in the Ningxia area of Mongolia who consume wolfberries on a daily basis reportedly live for over 100 years on a regular basis. They don’t get arthritis, cancer and diabetes, and they claim their secret is the consumption of a bowl of fresh wolfberries every day. Statistics back up their claims. The number of people in Ningxia who live past 100 years is 400% greater than the average for the rest of China.

People who have studied the berry believe its amazing secret of longevity may lie in its super rivh anti-oxidant effects. Wolfberry has been described as the most powerful anti-oxidant known. The juice of the berry has more free radical reducing ability against the most common free radicals than almost any antioxidant drink. One marker of anti-oxidation in the body is the levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the blood. Levels of this important anti-oxidant normally decrease as we age. However, in a study relased to the public by Gary Young, it was found that among Chinese who consumed daily doses of wolfberries, the blood level of SOD increased a remarkable 48%. More amazingly, the levels of lipid peroxidase, a dangerous oxidant, dropped a solid 68%.

The berry has 500 times more vitamin C per weight than oranges, and it has immune boosting effects. For example, it has been shown to increase the levels of immunoglobulin A in the body. Its immune benefits, which may have benefits for people with HIV, is related to the large amounts of leucine found in wolfberries. Leucine is an essential amino acid that cannot be produced by the body. Wolfberries contain additional compounds that help the body convert leucine into HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate). HMB is an important immune modulating chemical in the body. It assists the body to burn fats, build muscle and strengthen the body’s immune defenses.

Recently, the New Age Marketing company E-Helps has included wolfberry in an herbal formulation called BioVision, a product specially designed to improve eyesight. It has been known for a long time that anti-oxidants slow the rate of age related macular degeneration, and studies have shown that subjects who consume wolfberry on a daily basis show a dramatic improvement in both dark adaptation and vitamin A levels, and also carotene content of their blood serum (measures of eyesight acuity).
