Goji Benefits and Uses*
Goji is a power-packed sweet succulent berry that makes a perfectly enjoyable thick concentrated syrup that may be taken anytime by anyone for health benefits.*
The berries are grown in the foothills of China, hand-picked and sun-dried on sheets to preserve them and activate the nutrients in the skins. The orange-red color of goji berries is because of the high amounts of carotenoids, which are precursors to vitamin A.*
Goji is traditionally used as a potent nutritive tonic that nourishes the eyes, for clarity and eyesight.* Goji lends antioxidants for the skin and promotes health blood and liver function.* It rejuvenates to the organs and glands of the body from long-term consistent consumption. *

Goji Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of goji taken is dependent on bodyweight and diet factors.
BW + AL + DF
- Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
- Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
- Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~100 pounds bodyweight
AL = + 0-2 droppers - 0-1 low/medium, 1-2 medium/high
DF = + 1 dropper for every ~1000-1500 kcal reached
Example #1: 120lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is going for a moderate trail-hike (AL = 0-1 dropper) and eats ~1850 kcals (DF = 1 dropper) would have a functional dosage of ~3 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #1 is BW 1 + AL 1 + DF 1 = ~3 droppers
Example #2: 210lb person (BW = 2 droppers) who is going for a jog on a day-off (AL = 0-1 dropper) and eats ~2500 kcals (DF = 1-2 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~3-5 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #2 is BW 2 + AL 0-1 + DF 1-2 = ~3-5 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 15 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~1000 mgs goji berry extract
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~33 mgs goji berry extract
Suggested Goji Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 3-30 days
- Long Term = ∞
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 1-7 days
Continuous consumption of Goji will yield increasing benefits and results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Goji at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and wellness benefits.*
After an initial cycle Goji may be continued on-and-off for long-term supplementation health benefits or traded-out for another tonic adaptogen superfood.*
How to take Goji
Goji is the easiest tonic to take.
Take with food or on an empty stomach any time of the day.
Use Goji as a recovery tonic from exercise or work by taking it after activity to boost recovery.
Take Goji before bed to promote rest and regeneration.
Use Goji with coffee and tea and energy drinks to derive better lasting energy.
Take Goji with any tonic to increase the benefits of any tonic taken with it.
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health.
