Health Properties

Goji berries are creating a stir as their reputation for health giving properties increases. The Goji Berry is also known as the Wolfberry. Its botanical name is Lycium barbarum, a member of the Solanaceae plant family. This plant family includes the potato, tomato, aubergine and the ubiquitous tobacco plant. The plant and berries are interesting because the berry turns black if touched by hand, so the farmers have to lay mats under the bush and harvest the berries by shaking it to make them fall. The berries are then dried to make them ready for a wide range of uses. They are grown organically in regions of Mongolia and Tibet where pesticides have never been used on the plants. At this time of year the berries' potential to aid weight loss is making them very attractive. People who have followed a diet of Goji berries for a couple of weeks found that they lost at least one pound lighter. Goji berries contain more vitamin C than any other berry: one ounce contains 500 times more vitamin C than oranges. They are also packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E and have antioxidant properties. These berries also have 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, linoleic acid and higher beta carotene than carrot. The normal dosage of Goji Berries is 10-30 grams daily, and they can be consumed in any form, either mashed, whole, liquid, or as a snack, at any time of the day.
