The goji berry may just be the world’s most powerful anti-aging food, and the most nutritionally dense food on the planet; it is, quite literally, a “superfood.” It is touted as having more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots, and more iron than steak. Because many of the nutrients in Goji berries have proven benefit to the skin, it was just a matter of time before this little wrinkled berry started to show up in cosmetics. For instance, research suggests that unique polysaccharides (a major constituent of Gojis) hold promise as anti-inflammatory and anti-aging components. They also show significant antioxidant activity. In fact, Goji berries rate quite highly in terms of their Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) at 25,300. The antioxidants in Goji berries can help to reduce inflammation and the sun damage that eventually cause wrinkles, age spots, and sagging. Plus, these free radical fighters protect dermal fibroblasts (the cells that make connective tissue). The berry is also an “adaptogen.” It invigorates and strengthens the system while helping the body and skin to deal with stress. In Asia, the Goji is believed to harmonize functions of the entire body, including hormones. Adaptogens that balance hormones prevent the hormonal surges that wreak havoc with skin, causing inflammation and acne. It’s no wonder that Goji berries have popped up in cleansers, anti-aging creams, and even masks . . .
