Said to have been discovered by Buddhist monks in Tibet, the goji berry has enjoyed a celebrated reputation as an anti-aging powerhouse. Believed to preserve long life, the berry strengthens the liver, boosts energy, and purifies the blood. It is also believed to prevent the growth of cancer cells, as well as prevent a number of diseases including diabetes and heart disease. It also packs potent skin-rejuvenating properties.
The single-celled, water-grown algae called chlorella contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant, making it a powerful antidote for fighting wrinkles and maintaining a youthful glow. Dense in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, the food’s nucleic acid content grants it potent rejuvenating powers. According to Benjamin S. Frank, author of The No-Aging Diet and Nucleic Acid Therapy in Aging and Degenerative Disease, “nucleic acids promote the rejuvenation of the body’s own DNA and RNA, enabling it to repair itself, utilize nutrients more efficiently, as well as remove toxins and produce more energy.”
