A Review of Composition and Health Effects of Lycium barbarum

The antioxidant effects of Lycium barbarum have been studied in many aspects: as an anti-aging agent, for general health protection, against tumor growth, for the development of the immune system regulatory, to develop vision, and to protect against cancer and diabetes.

Comparative Metabolic Profiling of Lycium Fruits (Lycium barbarum and Lycium chinense) from Different Areas in China and from Nepal

Results showed that there was a slight difference in contents of nutrients and phytochemicals among samples from different areas, and Lycium fruits could be used as a dietary source of natural function foods and be worthy of development and utilization.

Effect of goji berry on the formation of extracellular senile plaques of Alzheimer’s disease

GB can be a promising anti-aging agent and warrants further investigating due to its effect on reduction of amyloid beta toxicity, according to ELISA and AFM results.



[Scavenging effect of total flavonoids of lycium barbarum L on active oxygen radicals and inhibitory effects on heat output from L1210 cells].

The scavenging effects of total flavonoids of Lycium barbarum L. (TFL) were studied by using ESR-spin trapping technique and the inhibitory effects on heat output of both polymorphonuclear

Study on Antioxidant Effectiveness of Ch. Wolfberry Polysaccharides

The antioxidant effectiveness of Ch.wolfberry polysaccharides were studied and compared with Vc using the superoxide radical system, hydroxyl radical system, oxidation system of linoleic acid induced

Studies on the chemistry of Gouqi polysaccharides

objective: To study the chemistry and pharmacological activity of Gouqizi(Lycium barbarum L)water soluble polysaccharide. Methods:Screened with resisting liqid peroxidation, the effective ingredients

Antioxidant activity in fruits and leaves of blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry varies with cultivar and developmental stage.

Jewel black raspberry and blackberries may be the richest source for antioxidants and a linear correlation between total phenolic content and ORAC activity for fruits and leaves was shown.

Total Antioxidant Capacity of Fruits

The total antioxidant activity of 12 fruits and 5 commercial fruit juices was measured in this study using automated oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) assay. On the basis of the wet weight of

Evaluation of the antioxidant effects of polysaccharides extracted from Lycium barbarum

Lycium barbarum, a famous Chinese medicinal herb, has a long history of use as a traditional remedy for many diseases. Polysaccharides are the most important functional constituent in Lycium barbarum

Composition of sugars, organic acids, and total phenolics in 25 wild or cultivated berry species.

It has been demonstrated that wild grown species generally contain more phenolics than cultivated ones, and this information is interesting for nutritionists as well as berry growers and breeders who can promote the cultivation of species and new cultivars with higher phenolic content.

Oxygen radical absorbing capacity of phenolics in blueberries, cranberries, chokeberries, and lingonberries.

Phenolics such as quercetin and cyanidin had highly effective radical scavenging structures in blueberries, cranberry, chokeberry, and lingonberries, and Phenolic acids such as caffeic acid showed high antioxidant activity, probably due to its dihydroxylation in the 3-4 positions as hydrogen donors.

Goji (Lycium barbarum and L. chinense): Phytochemistry, pharmacology and safety in the perspective of traditional uses and recent popularity.

In view of the available pharmacological data and the long tradition of use in the traditional Chinese medicine, L. barbarum and L. chinense certainly deserve further investigation, but clinical evidences and rigorous procedures for quality control are indispensable before any recommendation of use can be made for Goji products.
