Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: Does Goji juice have real merit?

A:  Gou ji—actually, the proper name is Gou Qi Zi—is a well-known member of the traditional Chinese herbalist’s arsenal of herbs and has been for thousands of years. It is the berries from the lyceum tree. (Lycium barbarum is its botanical name.) And yes, it has been studied for its many wonderful properties that have been linked to tumor suppression, hematological effects, and diabetes. The most promising research has been in the area of liver protection and cholinergic (reducing blood pressure) abilities. Gou Qi Zi is rich in linoleic acid (precursor to GLA), thiamine, riboflavin, and vitamin C.

Here is one way you can get its benefits:

• Boil tea from Gou Qi Zi, and chrysanthemum flowers. The tea will be refreshing and you will see a definite improvement in your eyes.
