Also known as a wolfberry, the bright-red gogi berries are considered sweet and mildly tart and similar in texture to a raisin. As one of the world’s most nutrient-dense foods, gogi berries supply an abundance of antioxidants to:

Gogi berries also provide high levels of important vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, A, fiber, iron and zinc. They contain all eight essential amino acids and are surprisingly full of protein.

Gogi berries are the fruit of the Lycium barbarum or Lycium chinense bush. Both are variations of a boxhorn plant and native to Asia.
