WolfBerry Natures Bounty of Nutrition and Health

by Paul M Gross PhD,  Xioaping Zhang MD and Richard Zhang

This book objectively considers nutritional evidence that the Chinese wolfberry, Lycium barbarum L., is the world's most nutrient-rich food. The authors summarize and interpret more than 80 scientific publications relating to Chinese wolfberry.

A chapter is devoted to the 2000 year old Chinese wolfberry as China's herbal treasure and 5000 year old applications of traditional Chinese medicine. Wolfberry's rich nutritional make-up of phytochemicals, 18 amino acids, 11 essential minerals, 8 polysaccharides (dietary fermentable fibre), 5 omega fatty acids, 6 vitamins and protein content are explained.

Factors influencing nutrient density and quality, such as taxonomy, geography, Yellow River loess (silt from flooding), cultivation practices and processing, are given separate chapters. Wolfberry is compared to more common 'superfoods' as spinach, flax seed and blueberries. This book provides the scientific integrity needed to benchmark wolfberry as a nutrient-rich food valuable for western diets and health.
