It takes something truly extraordinary to last for 5,000 years . . .
While Egyptians built the ancient pyramids 2,200 years before Hippocrates became the father of western medicine, Chinese physicians began using their newly developed alphabet to carefully record and advance their treasured medicinal legacy.
Throughout these ancient writings, three superior and legendary health tonics consistently emerge: ginseng, ling tzi, and wolfberries. Ginseng was too expensive and too powerful for daily use, and ling tzi was difficult to find. But wolfberries were readily available and mild enough for daily use by people of all ages for a variety of symptoms.
The most frequent references to wolfberries in early Chinese medical texts extolled wolfberries for strengthening the eyes, liver, and kidneys, as well as fortifying the “qi” (chi) or life force. The well-respected medical book, Shen Nung Ben Tsao (475-221 B.C.), noted the wolfberry’s benefits ranging from replenishing vital essences to strengthening and restoring major organs. Li Shiz Hen, regarded by many as the greatest herbalist of all time, compiled the well-renowned physicians handbook (Ben Cao Gang Mu A.D. 1596). The book reports, “Taking in Chinese wolfberry regularly may regulate the flow of vital energy and strengthen the physique, which can lead to longevity.” The book also cites a very compelling story.
“The Bao Shou herb store recorded a wolfberry elixir that promotes longevity. A barefooted man named Zhang passed the formula of this elixir to an elderly person at Yi Shi County, who followed the recipe and lived for over a hundred years. The elderly man could walk extremely fast as if he was flying. His gray hair turned black again. The herb is mellow and can be taken often to eliminate excessive heat in the body and will also improve vision.”
There is also another story of a woman who, during the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618-907), lived over three hundred years and claimed her secret to longevity was the wolfberry.
More recent evidence cites the magazine Domestic and Foreign, which published a story in the 1950s about a great herbal master Li Qingyun who lived over 200 years and died in 1930. In his life account, he revealed the secret of his longevity was gained from his mentor who told him to take five grams of wolfberries every day. “From then on I became healthy and agile. I can walk a hundred li [a li equals half a kilometer] and not feel tired. I became better in strength and stamina than the average person.”
