Benefits and Uses*
Goji berries are a concentrated nutritional blood tonic bursting with plant-derived vitamins and minerals, along with unique constituents that support immunity and glandular function for a holistic vitalizing superfood that supports daily health; although everyone will benefit, goji is often added to supplementation programs to promote the effectiveness of 'qi' energy adaptogens and adrenal tonics for uncompromising sustaining power.*
Goji is a Nutrient-Packed Sweet Succulent Berry.*
They make 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 a plant-pigment called lycopene and high amounts of carotenoids, which are precursors to vitamin A.*
Goji is traditionally used as a nutritive tonic that nourishes the eyes, for clarity and eyesight.*
The berries lend lycopene antioxidants to support the skin, promote blood health, and liver function.* They rejuvenate the organs and glands from long-term consistent consumption.*

Recommended Dosage: 500 – 3,000 milligrams @ 1-3 times a day*
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 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.
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health †
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.*
