Benefits of Goji Berries

Goji has only been tested on humans in two published studies. A Chinese study published in the Chinese Journal of Oncology in 1994 found that 79 


people with cancer responded better to treatment when goji was added to their regimen.

There have been several test tube studies that show that goji berry contains antioxidants and that goji extracts may prevent the growth of cancer 


cells, reduce blood glucose, and lower cholesterol levels. However, that doesn't necessary mean that goji will have the same benefits when taken as a juice or tea.


Goji berries have been used for 6,000 years by herbalists in China, Tibet and India to:

protect the liver

help eyesight 

improve sexual function and fertility 

strengthen the legs

boost immune function

improve circulation

promote longevity 

Goji berries are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. One of zeaxanthin's key roles is to protect 


the retina of the eye by absorbing blue light and acting as an antioxidant. In fact, increased intake of foods containing zeathanthin may decrease 


the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in people over the age of 65.
