Health Notes

Goji Berry

Goji Berry
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Macular Degeneration

Goji berries are also a rich source of zeaxanthin, a carotenoid that when consumed becomes concentrated in the macular pigment of the eye and may help protect the retina.1, 2 Both human and monkey studies have shown that consuming goji berries or extracts high in zeaxanthin raises blood levels of zeaxanthin,3, 4, 5, 6 but only animal research has verified that goji berry consumption increases macular pigment, and no research has looked at whether goji berries provide protection from diseases of the retina.

Works for me!

By jimnsofie

See all my reviews

Pros

  • Effective
  • Long-Lasting Energy
  • Nutritional
  • Tastes Good

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Reading Studying
    • Stay Awake On Long Drives

    Comments about LIVING ESSENTIALS 5-hour Energy® Extra Srength - Berry:

    I only use it for two reasons: studying and long drives. It doesn't give me that "wired" feeling that expresso gives me, but, rather I feel as if I had a really good night's rest. I'm able to focus and be productive for hours! My favorite is Extra Strength grape flavor.

    The regular strength does not effect me, but neither does a cup of coffee before bed keep me up at night. That's me.

      Best Uses

        Comments about LIVING ESSENTIALS 5-hour Energy® Extra Srength - Berry:

        Bitter taste with bad aftertaste - didn't feel much real energy, perhaps a bit jittery - but felt tired within a few hours. Seems like it's just caffeine but no extended duration or control.

          Tried 5Hour ENERGY "SEVERAL,SEVERAL"times, spent "SEVERAL,SEVERAL,SEVERAL" dollars trying to give it a chance to work.NEVER,EVER has worked!! How long do you wait after drinking product before you should feel some energy or ability to focus? I've waited from 25 minutes to 2 hours with out taking anything before or after drinking the "5 Hr Energy". There are really NO instructions on how to take product!! I even tried 2 bottles at a time-does NOTHING! Are you suppose drink it on empty stomach-I did that every time and waited,waited and waited for NOTHING.I am 5ft 3inches tall,weigh 116 pounds-It has never done anything!I've been in medical profession for 30 years,am very carefull on how I take things--AM SO DISSAPPOINTED.
