Goji berry, or Lycium chinenis, is an edible berry grown in China. Records show the Goji Berries have been used in Chinese herbal medicine and for culinary purposes since 100 A.D. The pleasant-tasting Goji berry sometimes called Lycii Berry, is thought by some to have antipyretic and alterative properties.
The Lycium Berry has an exceptionally dense concentration of complex carbohydrates. Its antioxidant carotenoids and flavonoids protect from free-radical damage. Carotenoids, especially beta carotene, a vitamin A precursor, also are important to eye health. Organic Goji Berry is sometimes used in a cooling tonic. Whole Organic Goji Berries are still one of the most popular tonics in Chinese herbal medicine today.
PLEASE NOTE! "Goji berry" and Lycii berry are virtually the same, with the only discernable difference is that Goji is usually a high altitude strain of Lycium and is commonly found in the Himalayas, Nepal, Tibet, etc., whereas Lycii berry is the more common variety found in lowland areas. For trade purposes they are usually considered the same.

It can also be used before bedtime to induce prophetic and lucid dreaming. In other Chinese folklore it is said that Goji Berries promote a long life, and mythology says that it can even increase the life span above 100 years!
