Detailed information

Goji: Description and source

•    Lycium barbarum (Solanaceae family) is a plant originating from Asia and Eastern Europe. It is a bushy plant that can grow up to 3-5 metres and its fruit is a fleshy red-orange ellipsoid berry that is known as the Tibetan Goji berry, Wolfberry or Gou Qi Zi. The fruit is harvested from August to October.
•    Goji berries are currently very well-known and mainly grow in the Chinese regions of Ningxia Hui and Xinjiang Uyghur. They can be consumed in a variety of ways: raw, juiced or in an encapsulated extract1.


Goji: History

•    Goji berries have been used for 2000 years in China where they are thought to enrich Yin and are used in case of kidney, lug, liver and eye problems. They have also traditionally been used to increase longevity and tackle aging, psoriasis, allergies and insomnia1, 2.
•    They are currently very popular in Europe and North America and are considered a superfood rich in polysaccharides with antioxidant properties2.


Goji : Composition

•    Goji berries are rich in polysaccharides (up to 23% of dried weight) and carotenoids (zeaxanthin dipalmitate, beta-cryptoxanthin monopalmitate, zeaxanthin monopalmitate, trans-beta-carotene and trans-zeaxanthin). They also contain flavonoids (myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol), vitamins (riboflavin, thiamine and ascorbic acid), cerebroside, taurine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, beta-sitosterol, betaine, scopoletin and p-Coumaric acid, as well as other metabolites.
•    Goji berries are rich in vitamin C (up to 42 mg/100 g), comparable to the content of this vitamin in fresh lemon (50 g/100 g)3.
•    The polysaccharide content (also known as LBP) is the most important in terms of the biological action of the berries and consists of a mix of proteoglycans and branched polysaccharides.


Goji: Our extract

•    Extract name: Dried extract of Goji berries standardised to contain 20:1 and titrated to 50% in polysaccharides.
•    Scientific name: Lycium barbarum L.
•    Part used: Fruit


Goji: Benefits

•    Goji berries are used as a healthy foodstuff since they possess antioxidant, neuroprotective, immunomodulating and anti-aging properties and improve general well-being thanks to their invigorating qualities.


Goji: Use, dosage

•    One dose of our product (4 capsules) is equivalent to 30 grams of fresh berries (a daily consumption of 20-50 grams is recommended) and contains 750 mg of polysaccharides.


Goji: Studies/research

•    Studies performed on Goji berries have mostly focused on its LBP polysaccharide content2, 3. One of the principal objectives of these studies was to analyse the antioxidant and immunomodulating properties of Goji berries to tackle pathologies related to aging.
•    Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of the Lycium barbarum polysaccharide-protein complex in modulating the immune system. The effect has been noted on different parameters, such as an increase in macrophage activity and the proliferation and activity of splenocytes3, 4.
•    Goji berry polysaccharides also help to reduce glucose5 and lipid levels in the blood1. One study showed that the hypoglycaemic effect is related to an increase in the use of glucose to reduce levels in the blood and also encourages the proliferation of β cells, which promotes correct secretion of insulin5.
•    In terms of neuroprotective properties, the University of Hong Kong performed an in vitro test to study the effects of Goji berry extracts on neurodegenerative diseases connected with aging. They observed that the aqueous extract of Lycium barbarum reduced the activity of the JNK-1 protein, which is implicated in neurodegeneration6.
•    Combined with polysaccharides, the flavonoids and carotenoids in Goji berries perform an antioxidant action demonstrated in vitro and in vivo due to their reductive effect on metallic ions and elimination of free radicals1, 7.
