Goji, also known as Chinese wolfberry, is the superberry of the exotic fruits. It provides plenty of antioxidants and secondary plant substances such as quercetin and resveratrol that help to protect the blood vessels and nourish the skin. It is said to have one of the strongest anti-ageing effects of all superfruits. At the same time, its amino acid content soothes the skin and provides intensive moisture for a vital, balanced complexion. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to balance a CHI deficiency – low energy, dry eyes, to strengthen the legs and help in many other areas. Its low sugar content makes the goji berry popular as a healthy trendy snack or drink.
