Our Goji Berry Extract Powder is a 50% extract (8:1 ratio) meaning each serving contains a 50% concentration of the polysaccharides. The Goji Berry, a relative of tomato and natural source of lycopene, has also been called the world's most powerful anti-aging food. Modern science has shown that this bright red berry not only contains extremely high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals but also contains many unique phytonutrients, polysaccharides and complex compounds that scientists are just beginning to understand.
Suggested Use: Mix 1 teaspoon with juice, yogurt or add to your favorite smoothie.
