What is  goji, you may be wondering. Goji is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been used in Tibetan and Chinese medicine for many centuries. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines and medicines.

Goji juice is rich in vitamins (B1, B2, B6, C and E), minerals (calcium, copper, iron, selenium and zinc), amino acids (including tryptophan, isoleucine and leucine), carotenoids (including beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene and zeaxanthin), essential fatty acids (including linoleic acid), protein and beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol known for numerous health benefits.
