What's the secret of Goji berry?

Liu Yuxi, a poet of Tang Dynasty, also praised wolfberry in his poems. His poems were “superb in function and sweet in taste, and a spoonful of his knowledge can prolong his life.”

There is a story about Chinese wolfberry in the medical book Taiping Sheng Hui Fang written by Wang Huaiyin, Zheng Qi and Chen Zhaoyu, doctors of Song Dynasty.

The story tells of an official visiting a mountain. On the way, he saw a young woman whipping an old woman with a whip. The old man not only did not resist, but nodded his head and said yes.

Officials thought that it was immoral for young women to beat the elderly, so they went forward to ask questions. The young woman said she was the mother of the beater, over 200 years old. She beat her daughter because she didn’t listen to the tutor, so she beat her.

The official was surprised and asked why she was still young in her 200’s. She answered, “Eat wolfberries every day, seedlings in spring, stems in summer, fruits in autumn and roots in winter, so you can cross mountains and mountains.” And this daughter refuses to eat medlar, so she is weak and not old before she fades. That’s why she was just beaten. The official was dumbfounded.

Lycium barbarum is also known as fairy stick. It has been handed down that there are many wolfberries in Nanqiu Village, Penglai County, Shandong Province, several meters high, whose roots are firm and the people in the village live longer because they drink wolfberry water. There is a wolfberry tree beside the big well of Kaiyuan Temple in Jianzhou, Zhenjiang, Southeast China. People call this well wolfberry well. They think that “drinking its water is very beneficial to people.

” This is also recorded in the Compendium of Materia Medica. In “Liu Songshi Baoshou Tang Experience Formula”, there are records of the side of Dixiantan. It is said that there used to be a barefoot fairy named Zhang, who got a secret recipe from an old man. After taking it, he lived to be over a hundred years old. He walked vigorously, his white hair turned black, and his lost teeth came back to life.

Sexual function is strong. The medication of this prescription is very peculiar: 200 grams of Chinese wolfberry leaves in spring, 50 grams of Chinese wolfberry flowers in summer, 250 grams of Chinese wolfberry in autumn and 500 grams of Chinese wolfberry root bark in winter. After being dried in shade, they are soaked overnight with yellow wine, extracted and dried, processed into fine powder, and then processed into pills, one pill at a time, twice a day, thus prolonging the life of Chinese wolfberry.  

According to the records of traditional Chinese medicine in past dynasties, wolfberry has the function of nourishing the liver and clearing the eyes. Health preservers and the people all praise the use of wolfberry to clear the eyes. In his book Materia Medica Jingshu, Miao Xiyong made an analysis of the mechanism of Chinese wolfberry’s blindness, pointing out that Chinese wolfberry is an essential medicine for the deficiency of liver and kidney’s true Yin and the fatigue of internal heat, and the deficiency of Yin in the elderly accounts for eighty-nine of the total, so Chinese wolfberry is the best product for the savvvvvy purpose.

Lycium barbarum is moist and nourishing, and it can also reduce fever, which is the best product for Yin-tonifying and heat-eliminating. Zhang Xichun, a modern physician, emphasized the antipyretic effect of wolfberry with his own experience.

He said that from the age of 50, whether winter or summer sleep every night, put a pot of cold water at the bedside, wake up every time, feel fever in the heart, drink cold water several mouthfuls, until dawn, there is not much left in the pot. However, as long as you take 30 grams of Lycium barbarum before bed, you can drink less 1 cup of cold water, and wake up in the morning feeling particularly comfortable and full of spirit. From this aspect, we can see that Lycium barbarum is a good tonic and has antipyretic effect.

Older, people often have Yin deficiency symptoms, such as lack of body fluid, dry mouth and throat, constipation, five-heart upset heat (hands and hearts, feet, heart and chest), night sweat or insomnia, among which liver and kidney Yin deficiency is more common.

Liver and kidney are physiologically mutually nourishing and closely related, so the symptoms of Yin deficiency of liver and kidney often appear at the same time, such as dizziness, tinnitus, unclear vision, insomnia, insomnia, etc. Five upset fever, spermatorrhea, soreness of waist and knee, red tongue, small and fast pulse, or small and weak, can be seen in anemia, irregular menstruation, or the end of acute fever.
