AHPA’s 40 Herbs We Love – No. 24: Goji Berry (with love from Mayway)
October 25, 2022
AHPA's 40th anniversary celebrations continue with our showcase of the twenty-fourth of many beloved herbs at the heart of our robust industry and vibrant community.
No. 24: Goji Berry (Lycium barbarum)
Goji berries can be found in everything from smoothies to baked goods these days, but this traditional Chinese herb has been used for millennia to enhance immune system function, improve eyesight, protect the liver, boost sperm production, and improve circulation, among other great health benefits.
Goji berries contain a surplus of vitamin A and almost one-third of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. They're rich in amino acids, antioxidants and essential minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. As always, quality is of the utmost importance, so buying organically grown goji berries is recommended whenever possible.
