The all powerful goji berry

We’ve heard a lot these days about the Goji berry, praised as a “super fruit” by many health guru’s. It can be brewed by itself into tea or combined with other teas. It is used to help eyesight, protect the liver, boost the immune system and promote longevity. Mixed with red dates and black tea, it can help with insomnia and anxiety. It is also commonly combined with Green Tea.

As amazing as this fruit is, it is advisable to talk to your health care provider before making it a huge part of your diet. It has reacted adversely with some medications.  With that caveat, it’s a great idea to try different things in relation to teas. Tea doesn’t have to be just leaves. It can be flowers or even other fruit. Don’t be afraid to make your tea a little colorful – there’s more than green and black.
