Goji Berry Extract (Lycium barbarum 40% Polysaccharides)

Goji Berries are found in China, Mongolia, and the Himalayas, and have been used for over 6,000 years. Goji Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants including 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals and carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. There is also an abundant amount of sesquiterpenoids found in goji berry that assist with stimulating human growth hormone secretion via the pituitary gland. To further enhance growth hormone, goji berry also contains potassium, L-glutamine, and L-arginine.

Goji, goji berry or wolfberry is the fruit of Lycium barbarum (Chinese: 寧夏枸杞 pinyin: N?ngxi? gǒuqǐ) and Lycium chinense (Chinese: 枸杞 pinyin: gǒuqǐ), two very closely related species of boxthorn in the family Solanaceae (which also includes the potato, tomato, eggplant, deadly nightshade, chili pepper, and tobacco). The two species are native to southeastern Europe and Asia.[1]

Research shows that eating berries -- like blueberries, acai berries, cranberries, strawberries, and cherries -- offer definite health benefits. It may be because berries like the goji berry are filled with powerful antioxidants and other compounds. Goji berries also have compounds rich in vitamin A.

In laboratory tests, antioxidants minimize damage from free radicals that injure cells and damage DNA. When a cell's DNA changes, the cell grows abnormally. Antioxidants can take away the destructive power of free radicals. Research is ongoing to see if this effect carries over into prevention of disease and aging.

Some studies using goji berry juice found benefits in mental well-being and calmness, athletic performance, happiness, quality of sleep, and feelings of good health. These are preliminary studies that need to be repeated before definitive conclusions can be drawn.

While goji berries are a rich source of antioxidants, it's still unclear how they stack up against other berries. Researchers also don't know whether goji berry supplements have the same health benefits as the actual berries.
