Goji berries belong to the Lycium barbarum, which grows high in the mountain regions of the Chinese province of Ningxia. The plant itself grows like a tall bush and in the summer produces sweet goji fruits, which are red in color.
Goji berries have been long used in Chinese traditional medicine for supporting general health, and the liver specifically. Dried berries are a rich source of antioxidants that neutralize harmful free radicals, preventing premature aging and strengthening the immune system.
They are especially rich in beta-carotene, which can contribute to improved eyesight. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2 and B6, vitamin E and vitamin C, as well as 11 essential minerals and 22 trace minerals. Polysaccharides represent up to 31% of dry weight and are a quality source of energy, while dietary fiber aids digestion and promotes weight loss.
