The Goji Berry

Gojigoji berry, or wolfberry is the fruit of either Lycium barbarum or Lycium chinense, two closely related species of boxthorn in the nightshade family, Solanaceae. L. barbarum and L. chinense fruits are similar but can be distinguished by differences in taste and sugar content. Both of these species are native to Asia and have been long used in traditional Asian cuisine.

Extracts from L. barbarum fruit have been shown to possess a range of biological activities, including effects on aging and neuroprotection. Rutin is the predominant flavonoid of Goji leaves. This compound has been recognized for its anti-UV capacity; therefore, cultivated leaves might be good sources for anti-radiation food or anti-UV cosmetics. Other polyphenols including quercetin, isoquercitrin, chlorogenic acid, cryptochlorogenic acid, isochlorogenic acid, p-coumaric acid, luteolin, kaempferol, and caffeic acid, have been found in the leaves of Goji berries.

In addition, Goji leaves have been described as a sustainable source of antioxidant compounds. The biological properties have been related to complementary, additive, or synergistic interactions between the high content of vitamins, minerals (mainly calcium, iron, and zinc), and a diversity of polyphenols, alkaloids, and polysaccharides.
