Have you ever seen a peeled apple turn brown? Free radicals are the culprit. The same thing happens when the body is stressed-either physically or mentally, or from environmental toxins. Free radicals attack the body, and are the principal reason for the aging process.
Antioxidants help neutralize free radical damage. The greater the amount of antioxidants in the body, the better we can slow down the aging process. Wolfberry is the most powerful antioxidant known.Protecting DNA
If free radicals remain unchecked, they can even attack DNA, the blueprint used to create each new cell in the body. If not repaired, damaged DNA copies itself to new cells created. In this manner, each new cell is damaged, and mutation can occur. A number of studies show that wolfberry is protective against DNA breakage and mutations. Additionally, ellagic acid, found in blueberries, raspberries, and pomegranates has been found to "protect DNA against injury."Enhancing Immunity
In a landmark pre-clinical study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, researchers determined that wolfberry juice have immune boosting benefits.
In an animal study done at a hospital in Beijing in 2002, Wolfberry has been found to stimulate interleukin-2 and gamma interferon, two anti-inflammatory substances important in supporting a healthy immune system.Supporting Eye Health
One of the carotenoids found in the wolfberry in higher than normal amounts, is called Zeaxanthin. There are some 40 clinical studies showing it is a powerful eye protectant.
