A superfood for a super you.

The Goji berry (Lycium barbarum L.) has been revered a king amongst plants for thousands of years. In Asia, its use as a nutritive food dates back nearly 5,000 years and even predates some of the pyramids. Since its introduction to the West, goji berries has joined other exotic fruits like acai to achieve “superfood” status. Similar to other dried fruits, goji berries can be eaten right out of the bag, added to baked goods and smoothies, or tossed into salad, cereal or yogurt.
