Goji Berries can be consumed liberally as you can see above, or taken in small doses. Goji Berries can be used to make teas, juice, soup and wine. It can be added to salads, smoothies and yoghurts. They taste deliciously like a raisin and a cranberry mixed together. You can also eat these berries straight out of the bag.
NOTES: Like any other dried fruit, Goji Berries can be consumed every day. Goji Berries can be used the same ways as any dried fruit, such as in smoothies mixed in with muesli or in any recipe which calls for dried fruits. Personally we like to take our Goji Berries in a smoothie, mixed in with some of our other super food friends such as coconut water, cacao powder, cacao nibs, maca, raw honey, hemp seed or some Celtic sea salt. Throwing a handful of organic Goji Berries in a smoothie and finding the best balance is perhaps one of the healthiest things to consume daily.
It is probably rare but we have to mention it, Goji Berries may interact with certain drugs, including blood thinners and medications for diabetes or high blood pressure. What’s more, you should exercise caution if you’re pregnant, as they contain betaine, a compound that may harm fetal health. Further research is needed to determine whether Goji Berries are safe during pregnancy. If you’re taking medications or have underlying health conditions, you may want to talk to your healthcare provider before adding Goji Berries to your diet.

Q - What kind of eye conditions will Goji Berries improve?
A - Chinese medicine uses Goji to treat or prevent visual degeneration, such as cataracts, retinopathy, or age related macular degeneration. One report from the Department of Ophthalmology in the Chinese University of Hong Kong demonstrated that carotenoids in wolfberry had a high affinity for the retina. Affinity means the nutrients in wolfberry showed a high concentration in the retina after ingestion and absorption by the body. Another study on 44 patients with diabetic retinopathy showed that wolfberry significantly improved conditions that cause retinopathy. Dr. Iris F. Benzie, MD and her research team at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have done a single-blinded, placebo-controlled, human study. The study demonstrate a mean post-supplementation level of 0.096mol/l, a 250 % increase, in fasting plasma zeaxanthin after 4 weeks of eating Goji Berries. Twenty seven people anticipated the study. This study has been published in the British Journal of Nutrition (2005), 93, 123-130.
