Secret Weapon #7 Ningxia Wolfberries (Gojo berries)
Do You Remember the Ningxia turtles?
Until recently, Westerners had not heard of Ningxia Wolfberries. They come from Ningxia province like the super Ningxia turtles on TV a few ago. They were super strong good guys. These berries have a remarkable powerhouse of nutrients for health, many which we find deficient in the typical American diet. They come from the foothills of the Himalayas and have been used by Chinese healers for generations.
Analysis shows that this berry has:
3 times the Vitamin A of a carrots;
10 times the vitamin C of an orange,
10 times more Thiamin than any other food.
You don’t need a fiber supplement; Ningxia is a whopping 21 times more than barley and 15times more than oats.

This example above, uses flax and chia seeds, these are very important to promote healthy cell membranes and for supporting energy generation within your cells. Cell membranes are primarily made of fats, ( and so is your brain) and these fats come from the food you eat. Poor nutrition, such as low intakes of the health-promoting omega -3 fatty acids may result in brittle, broken (leaky) cell membranes that cannot function appropriately. Fats that support healthy cell membranes can be provided by cold-water fish oils (especially salmon), many nuts and seeds especially flax and chia.
Ningxia Fruit Has More Calcium Than Cottage Cheese These little red berries a rich source of amino acids and protein, with Ningxia having 110mg of calcium (more than spinach at 100 mg.)

Will it help my eyes? One of the most well-known traditional properties of Goji berry fruit is its ability to improve vision. This has been documented for over fifteen centuries, and now modern scientific studies show that Ningxia berry has 10 times more Xeaxanthin than most green foods. It also contains another great antioxidant nutrient for eye health called Lutein, this helps with age related macular degeneration. Raw eggs contain alot of this but Ningxia has 14 times more, with 27,800 mg.
See The Light -- Do your take your vision for granted?
Breakfast truly effects cataract and macular degeneration. That’s right I’m going to tell you if you eat a ton of animal food, your going to need glasses. Around the macular are fatty acids that are greatly affected by free radicals. But fortunately, these free radicals can be intercepted and stopped cold with antioxidant sponges found in fruits and vegetables -- they will intercept the bad guys. 88% of blindness is preventable. Studies, assessing diet and nutrients in the blood, show that 88% of blindness in macular degeneration can be prevented by eating the right food. The veins in your eyes are dinky. They allow one red blood cell in at a time. These veins become clogged just like the arteries in the heart. Decreasing your blood pressure and the cholesterol will allow more oxygen and nutrients into the eyes and they will function better.
