Lycium barbarum, also known as Wolfberry. It looks like an orange Cranberry. Maybe you’ve seen Goji berry on smoothie menus or on the shelves at health food stores.
With the botanical name Lycium barbarum, and commonly known as WolfBerry, Lycium has been around a very long time. Used since 200 B.C. in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Lycium supports the liver and eyes.
