Goji Berries Work Wonders

Goji berries are a wonder food that is nicknamed “treasure tree” and “medicine tree” for its curative properties.  Its tender stalks and leaves are a great source of fiber, while its fruits and root bark can be used for medicinal purposes. Goji berries can help improve the immune system and are good for the internal organs and blood circulation. Even people with a weak constitution can consume goji berries. Goji berries can also help prevent greying and thinning hair, as they aid the body’s circulation and promote hair growth. Here is a simple recipe for goji and chrysanthemum tea.
