Since Black Goji Berries are packed with alot of vitamins, minerals, etc. and are more 'efficacious' than the red Goji berries. It has also been known to improve blood circulations & generates ' Prana / Qi.' Is it possible that a half paralyzsed stroke victims could benefit from consuming fresh Black Goji Berries red ones ?

Please advise. TQVM

Hello. This video shows a very bad reaction to the black goji fruit taste -https://youtu.be/4pYM6Q-LhFs ; How would you describe the taste and what is the best way to consume? Why unripe fruit could be toxic - what about children picking unripe fruit! Where to get a plant with the best fruit taste from, if there are fruit taste variations depending on propagation methods - for example seed grown plants may not carry the same qualities as parent plant.

I have been taking black Barbarum Goji berries for about 3 months now 1/4 cup per day, I have had xeomin a form of Botox for a few years about every 8 months. I have always had wonderful results, but I just had my normal 50 units applied to my forehead and around my eyes. 2 weeks later , the effects of the xeomin have worn off. I know that the black Barbarum Goji berries can cure paralysis, can they reverse the effects of xeomin ( Botox)?
07 Feb 2017

Lots of what germ extract capsules from LEF.com, lots of juice concentrate powders made into a drink...from things like black current, goji, yumberry, wheatgrass, oatgrass, pomegranate, etc. Usually made it in doses she could sip while freshly mixed. God bless.

Dear Redempta, Add Legumes, Oranges, Pomegranate, Nuts, Brussel Sprouts, Brown rice, and Green Tea to your diet. These foods will help in the regrowth of cartilage. However, we suggest you consult your Doctor and go by his advise. Physical diagnosis is a must in such a case.
