Goji berries are tiny red fruits packed with antioxidants, anti-bacterial and powerful medicinal properties. Also called wolfberries, goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are native to Asia. This fruit is loaded with fiber, iron, minerals, 17 amino acids, vitamins A and C and they’re said to control dandruff, treat acne, balance oil, slow signs of aging, have anti-inflammatory properties, promote cell turnover, firm and tighten, soothe the skin and even skin tone while protecting from UV Rays. They promote collagen and elastin production, reduce hyperpigmentation, and reduce oxidative stress. Zhongning County, located in the Ningxia Hui region of Northern China, is considered the goji berry capital of the world.
It also contains beta-sitosterol, a powerful anti-inflammatory, which can help keep puffy or red skin, acne breakouts at bay while preventing sun damage and subsequent premature aging.
