A stranger was walking in the mountains one day and came across a pretty young woman walking with a feeble old man.

“Why are you with this old man? the stranger asked.

“Oh, him?” the woman replied. “This is my grandson. We look like this because i eat goji berries and he does not.”

Lycium contains Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBPs), that are considered to be the plants active anti-aging compounds. These compounds, in conjunction with the plant’s other constituents, collectively contain a variety of pharmacological functions including immunoregulative, anti-apoptotic activities, and reducing DNA damage that can help to counter the impact of aging. The LBPs, found in Lycium, are natural amino acids that help counter oxidative stress and aid immune system function.

Lycium berries contain some of the highest levels of beta-carotene found in edible plants.

As lycium is neither hot nor cold, it can be used to treat both hot and cold conditions without further exasperating either condition.
