Lycium barbarum-1.jpg
  • Lycium barbarum L. is a perennial bush common to most areas of China, Europe, and the Mediterranean region.
  • Its fruits have been used for centuries in China as a traditional herbal medicine and as a valuable nourishing tonic. The earliest Chinese medicinal monograph documented medicinal use of Lycium barbarum around 2300 years ago.
  • L. barbarum fruits contain active compounds, L. barbarum polysaccharides, which have been shown to reduce cancer risk and delay senescence, moisturize the lungs and improve vision. Lycium barbarum fruits can be used to produce various types of healthy products and foods, e.g., medicinal beverages and drinks, and healthy dietary soups[1] [2] [3].
