How does it work?
Goji berry possesses a unique combination of flavonoids, vitamins, minerals and polysaccharides that are thought to be responsible for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties. As an antioxidant, Goji berry absorbs oxygen free radicals in the body and prevents oxidative damage to the body’s cells, membranes, and tissues. In addition to its antioxidant activity, Goji berry extract has the ability to maintain healthy immune function. Goji berries contain a unique profile of polysaccharides that work together to impact cell-signaling functions, thereby facilitating immune cell communication. The polysaccharide complex of Goji berry is a powerful immune stimulator. One study showed that certain polysaccharide components of Goji berry helped cytokine production in human PMN cells (a class of white blood cells), suggesting an immune-enhancing action.
