Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are a type of fruit often used to boost health. Frequently consumed as a whole food, they're said to enhance energy, stimulate the immune system, and stave off a host of health problems. They contain compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine.Low in calories, fat-free, a good source of fiber and a high-antioxidant food, goji berry benefits include the ability to help you fight disease, effectively manage your weight and experience better digestion.
Uses for Goji Berries
Goji berries are also purported to promote weight loss, sharpen eyesight, fight cancer, lift mood, improve circulation, and slow up the aging process.
The Health Benefits of Goji Berries
Goji berries may improve function, suggests a small study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2009.
For the study, 60 healthy older adults (ages 55 to 72) consumed either goji berry juice or a placebo every day for 30 days. By the study's end, those given goji berries showed a greater improvement in several markers of immune function. What's more, participants who consumed goji berry juice experienced greater improvements in fatigue, sleep quality, memory, and focus.
Goji berries are a source of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that may protect the eyes from high-energy light waves such as the sun's ultraviolet rays (along with the carotenoid lutein).
Studies suggest that zeaxanthin and lutein in the eyes are associated with better vision and decreased likelihood of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Although goji berries are a source, zeaxanthin is found in many vegetables including kale, spinach and broccoli.

Take one ginseng root, then rinse and rub with clean water.
Take the ginseng and steep/soak it in a cup of hot water and drink.
After the ginseng has softened, you can then cut it into slices to extract more flavor and continue to steep it a second or third time in hot water. (Note: You may have to steep the ginseng root a second time until it is tender enough to slice.)
After you’ve had multiple cups of tea, you should also eat the ginseng slices to ensure you take in all the health benefits of the ginseng root.
** You can also add a spoon of Goji berries to your tea and steep them together.
