They contain the following nutrients:

19 amino acids, 6 times more than Bee Pollen

6 essential fatty acids

Vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, E

More betacarotene than carros

High antioxidant power

4 unique polysaccarides found in no other food source which help immunity and inhibit 3 kinds of inflammation

Goji berries are known to have a unique polysaccharide that stimulates the pituitary gland in the anterior of the brain    to produce more Human Growth Hormone, the master hormone in our body.

    I was thinking gojis could be part of Juice Feasting just like bee pollen. Run it by David and Katrina.
