Poster of 120 kinds of Exotic Fruits on glossy paper, full-color, 2-ft by 3-ft


Goji Berry, Chinese Wolfberry (Kỷ Tử, Câu Kỷ) - Lycium barbarum - Zone 5

Grows throughout much of China and Tibet, this berry is claimed to be "the most nutrient-dense food on the planet." It has 18 kinds of amino acids (more than bee pollen), up to 21 trace minerals and more carotenoids, (more beta carotene than carrots). It contains 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and Vitamin E. It is a good source of polysaccharides, which is believed to strengthen the immune system and slow the aging process. Fresh and dried berries are sweet and eaten like snacks.

Goji berries have been used in Asia for many centuries as a health food and traditional medicine. They are used as a health tonic to increase longevity, as medicine to treat liver and kidney problems as well as to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. They are believed to enhance immune system function, help eyesight, protect the liver, boost sperm production, and improve circulation.
