The Goji Berry has been used traditionally by the Tibetans, Chinese, Japanese and Korean for health and wellbeing. In traditional Chinese Medicine are believed to enhance immune system function, improve eyesight, protect the liver, boost sperm production, and improve circulation. They are generally consumed raw, made into a juice or wine and the berries and leaves are sometimes used to brew a tea.
Goji Berries are full of phytonutrients that have antioxidant actions which play an important role in protecting cells from damaging effects of free radicals, in particular a betacarotene and a carotenoid called Zeaxanthin that can protect eyes against macular degeneration.
Goji Berries are considered to be one of the most nutritious fruits available. The juice contains 18 amino acids, all eight of the essential amino acids, over 20 trace minerals including zinc, copper, calcium, iron, selenium and germanium. They also contain Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and more Vitamin C than oranges. Goji also has polysaccharides that are needed for the formation of glycoproteins which improve cellular communication and optimal functioning of the body
