For those of you who have never heard of them, don't worry, I shall be explain all !
Goji berries have a 3000-year history in Chinese herbal medicine. The bright red fruit has attained such legendary status for its purported age defying, strengthening and immune-protecting qualities, that the Chinese celebrate an annual two-week festival in its honour. In the last decade, interest in the West has exploded and the goji berry is often spoken of as one of the most nutrient-rich foods available.  , 
Sometimes referred to as wolfberries, goji grow on vine-like bushes that can reach up to six feet in height. In spring the narrow green leaves fall off and make way for delicate white flowers, which in turn are pollinated and are followed by the fruit: usually 1-2 cm long, with a high juice content. Goji berries possess a slightly bittersweet taste, likened to a cross between cherries and cranberries.
Chinese herbal master Li Qing Yen supposedly lived to 252 – marrying 14 times, and having 11 generations of descendents. He was known to eat goji berries every day. The seventh-century medical text, Yao Xing Lun, claimed the goji berry could ‘replenish the supply of body fluids, calm the spirit, refresh the skin, brighten the complexion, and strengthen the eyes.’ Another tenth-century text – the Shi Liao Ben Cao – credited it with ‘strengthening muscles, preventing colds and leading to longevity’. Other recorded ancient benefits, many of which today are upheld by scientific verification, include moistening of the lungs, purifying the liver and kidneys, improving mental function and enhancing sexual performance.  ,
