It was the early 1970s when superfood pioneer Ron Teeguarden sold
his first Goji berry—decades before they were found in smoothies and
superfood recipes or appeared as characters in yoga video spoofs. In fact,
Teeguarden’s dedication to the seemingly humble Goji may have contributed
to the proliferation of what is far more than simply a food.
Goji berries are in a category of foods known as tonic herbs. These powerful
plants have the potential to do more than contribute to health, wellness, and
longevity, especially for those of us living in the challenging environs of a
modern metropolis. These herbs penetrate deep into the body, affecting our
physical, mental, and even spiritual development. >
