Goji is a scarlet coloured berry, a special food with a delightfully sweet taste. A member of the solancea family, the goji berry bush (lycium barbarum - see it in the dictionary) is found in the north west of China. Because of its nutrient value and pleasant taste, Chinese people have been growing this herb for hundreds of years on the Ningxia flood plain between the Tibetan Plateau and Inner Mongolia. (see the map) Water derived from the Himalayas flows down the Yellow River and across the Ningxia plains, carrying with it an assortment of minerals and organic nutrients.
The goji bush blooms between April and October and is harvested from June to October depending on the weather and growing areas. When ready to harvest the fruit turns a bright red, is nearly oblong in shape and quite plump. Fullness in shape, brightness of colour and sweetness demonstrate the best quality of fruit. When picked from the bush and eaten, the berry should be very juicy and sweet to taste. Once picked, the berries are sun-dried over 5 days and then sorted by quality according to size prior to packing. The harvest of goji berries give full-time jobs to people who live there.
Farmers believe that the weather, the temperature extremes between -20°C and +40°C, combined with the mineral rich alkaline soils are contributing factors for why the berry is so highly nutritious. The main active component of the berry is the Lycium Barbarum Polysaccharide (LBP). The amount of LBP may vary depending on the type of wolfberry; the better the quality the higher percentage of LBP. Goji berry also contains several types of amino acids and trace minerals as well as being high in Vitamin C and protein.
The Hui people of Ningxia Autonomous Region have an astounding number of centenarians (people who live past 100). In one village of 4000 residents, 16 people are over 100 years of age. The face of these people look much younger. Could the daily cup of goji tea be a reason for this?
