Lycium Barbarum plant is known the world over by many different
names including Goji, Wolfberry, Red Medlar, Bocksdorn, Cambronera,
Duke of Argyll's Tea Tree, gou qi zi, Fructus lycii and Matrimony
Vine. Its Origin can be traced back to many areas of Asia, including Western China,
Mongolia, Tibet, and the Himalayan expanse. Westerners have only

these days with the Goji plant and the red berries it possesses.
This bright red berry not only contains extremely high
levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, but also contains
