Goji Berries

Goji Berries What are Goji Berries?
Goji berries have been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to boost life-force or "chi" energy, and now they're available to the west. Goji berries are harvested from the pristine remote area around the Jinsixia National Forest Park in China. The goji berry is sacred to the people of this remote region and they hold a special festival every year to honor and celebrate the life giving qualities of this extraordinary berry.
