I was so run-down I began consuming goji berries in October, 2006, and they have changed my life. I started with the raw, fresh berries and after about a month, the Democrats won control of the House and Senate. I switched to the berry juice because goji berries have a lot of fiber and at my age, well, the stories I could tell you about fiber!

Before long, Congress began talking about universal health care, my wife began to look younger and more beautiful and my dog finally got up the nerve to chase the neighbor's cat out of my flower beds.

I just got a raise and a promotion, my mechanic called to tell me my blown engine was actually a $3 fuse and last month our 11-year old son brought home straight A's. I plan to continue my morning juice regimen until the Democrats take the White House and America starts getting back to normal again. Can't wait!

Very similar story here.

I started eating Goji Berries when I was in my native Mexico back in 2006.

Right after I started eating them, I crossed the border through the desert barefoot and only GojiBerries for food in one day.

I got a job as a landscaper in Florida, and the owner gave me partnership in the company after I introduced him to the Goji.

I met a wonderful woman while mowing her lawn, and now live in Belle Isle with my new bride.

The inmigration paperwork was inmediately taken care of, and now I am a citizen.

I own now in the land development business, and next week we are buying our first island.

I love the Goji.

Dear Linda,
My wifre, Bootsie and I have been drinking Himalayan Goji juice, manufactured and distributed by FreeLife International Corp, for some time now, we have seen the benifits in a number of ways. We believe if you give your body the "correct foods & nutrition" your body will last a lot longer and in good health. It seems many people take better care of their cars than their bodies...
Good info,
Best,

My husband and I began drinking Himalayan Goji Juice in August of 07. I agree with the last post because nutrition itself is lacking from our food in general. We have experienced incredible results from drinking this great tasting food supplement and recommend it to all of our friends and family!!

I find it quite interesting – the article itself mentions numerous positive aspects of the goji berry. Everything from the Chinese using it for thousands of years to a dermatologist using it for facial treatments to advising patients to eat them. It was the Time Magazine Superfruit of the year in 2006. There has been quite a bit of positive press on this Goji Berry. Even the article itself mentions a number of positive things.
The only negative aspects the author tries to portray about goji is “it hasn’t been studied enough by Western Science.” And where she states the “dried Chinese berry resembles a weak cousin to the cranberry.”
She is right to an extent in that drying the berries destroys much of the bio-active polysaccharides, which are what provides the biggest health benefits of the berry. That is why a juice is the preferable way to go with the goji berry.

Is there any truth to the rumor that this berry causes impotence?

Just because research on a subject is in its infancy does not mean the research is not valid.

Several of my neighbors were struggling with fibromyalgia, shaking leg syndrome, and arthritic pain and have received tremandous benefits after taking Himalayan Goji Juice. There are over 80 University Studies supporting the 34+ health benefits. Check out www.pubmed.org , under the Latin name for Goji(Lycium Barbarum). I have gained control of my ADD and have remarkable energy.

Oh my gosh! I hate people who write a negative article about something but have never tried it themselves. Don't tell the people like me and my family and friends that it doesn't work - they will laugh at you. The proof is in the pudding my friends! My husband had a cholesterol reading of 123 2 weeks ago and he eats JUNK FOOD. The nurses who drew his blood thought for sure he was on cholesterol medication of some kind! We'll stick with Himalayan Goji Juice thank you very much - get smart and order some at www.GojiCycle.com . We are a bunch of unhealthy Americans - nobody in their right mind can deny THAT!

90% of the previous posts brought to you by goji juice franchisees' who must sell hugh amounts of their product to move up in the pyramid until it collapses.

p.s. most of these people are former noni juice suckers.

Be careful who you are judging as "noni juice suckers"...I personally have never sucked on noni juice and don't plan to start any time soon. Any time people are moving forward in a new and exciting direction with their lives and their business, creating the life of their dreams by serving others and promoting abundance, there will be naysayers like yourself sitting on their couch sucking down their evening six pack of beer and wondering when they are going to win the lottery.
Some of us have decided to creat the life we deserve, some will join us, some won't....so what! This is America, God Bless us all and Let Freedom and FREELIFE ring.

I started drinking / eating gogi a few days ago and since have lost 20 pounds, grown an inch taller, was told I'm better looking and leapt my FIRST tall building in a single bound!
I am close to being faster than a speeding bullet but have doubts I can become stronger than a locomotive.

Wow - what a great testimony! You should post that on GojiHealthStories.com but I don't think they have a section for HALLUCINATING! This happens to people who believe video games are real life. Goji is a temporary solution to a temporary situation. Once we leave this planet we won't need goji anymore! Yippee! Until then drink your Goji EVERY day! You'll be GLAD you did!
