Goji Berry
An ancient Himalayan health phenomenon, the Goji Berry (Lycium Barbarum) has long been known for its numerous health benefits. Sharing the same botanical name as the wolfberry, goji berries are packed full of antioxidants, amino acids, trace minerals and unique polysaccharides to combat the effects of free radicals. Goji Berries are also used by the people of Tibet to increase longevity and as a general health strengthening tonic.
