Lycium barbarum

Goji berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years to restore and maintain balance and harmony in the body. They are also referred to as wolf berries and they pack a high amount of antioxidants, which may help with increasing longevity and reducing inflammation. Goji berries have earned a reputation as a healthy food throughout Asia, sometimes described as "red diamonds". Studies show that Goji berries may help with weight loss, stimulate immune function and preserve eye health as we age. They are said to aid in the treatment and/or prevention of a broad range of health issues, including: alzheimer's disease, type II diabetes, fatigue, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and liver disease. Goji berries are native to the temperate and subtropical regions of China, Mongolia, and the Tibetan Himalayas.
