Why Should I Buy This Product?

The goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.

Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth. They are a member of the nightshade family (Solonaceae), which contains many other common vegetables such as potato, tomato, eggplant, and pepper, as well as some poisonous plants like belladonna and deadly nightshade. Native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, the goji berry is now grown in many other countries as well.

Goji berries have a mild tangy taste that is slightly sweet and sour. The whole, dried berries have a similar shape and chewy texture as raisins.

Health Benefits of Goji Berries :

Weight Loss : A preliminary study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2011 indicates that goji berries may support weight-loss efforts.

In an experiment involving a group of overweight adults, the study's authors observed that those who consumed goji berry juice every day for two weeks experienced a greater decrease in waist size (compared to participants given a placebo for the same time period).

Immune System: Goji berries may improve function, suggests a small study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2009.

For the study, 60 healthy older adults (ages 55 to 72) consumed either goji berry juice or a placebo every day for 30 days. By the study's end, those given goji berries showed a greater improvement in several markers of immune function. What's more, participants who consumed goji berry juice experienced greater improvements in fatigue, sleep quality, memory, and focus.

Eyesight : Goji berries are a source of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that may protect the eyes from high-energy light waves such as the sun's ultraviolet rays (along with the carotenoid lutein). Studies suggest that zeaxanthin and lutein in the eyes are associated with better vision and decreased likelihood of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Although goji berries are a source, zeaxanthin is found in many vegetables including kale, spinach and broccoli.
