Goji, goji berry or wolfberry is the fruit of Lycium barbarum and Lycium chinense, two very closely related species of boxthorn in the family Solanaceae. The two species are native to southeastern Europe and Asia.

This little red/orange berry is legendary in China for many good reasons. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years it is celebrated with a yearly festival in Ningxia province in northern China where Goji cultivation has been perfected.

Goji berry farms line the banks of the Yellow River where the floodplain has created over time the most highly mineralized soil in the world. This soil is the starting point for some very interesting plant botany. Goji pulls these minerals out of the soil and makes very interesting compounds with them. Goji has more iron than steak, more potassium than bananas, and 18 amino acids including the 12 essential ones. This profile gives the dried berries a protein content of 12% by weight. This is astounding to discover in a fruit.

Goji berry is best known for its ability to stimulate improvement of vision due to extraordinarily high content of Zeaxanthin which is the pigment in the macula of the eye. As a blood alkalizer and a liver cleanser it is more powerful even than the mighty Milk Thistle. The oil contained in the tiny seeds is on a par with olive oil and overall the berry is one of the most nutrient dense foods know anywhere. Five interesting polysaccharides are the subject of intense research with huge implications into healing of cancers and tumors. If you type Lycium barbarum (Scientific Name of the Goji or Wolfberry) into the search box on PubMed you will find 217 studies that are known from international laboratories.

Here in the west the buzz word in health circles is Antioxidant. Goji contains 10 times more than blueberries, measuring 25,500 and only a small handful (25 gm) is required to supply the recommended daily amount. Add them to your cereal or yogurt, smoothie or juice drink. Enjoy solo or in trail mix or whatever your imagination can come up with. An excellent way to help boost your immune system and improve your chances of longevity, Goji is truly a super food above most others.
