- Question from Mary: Have you heard of this Himalayan Goji juice? Do you know what it is and if there is anything to the claims made about it?
- Answers - Gary Deng Goji fruit is what I call "fruit of the year." Every year there is a new fruit and fruit juice involved. This is one of them. In traditional Chinese medicine, goji berry was used mainly to treat eye problems and liver problems. It was never used for cancer prevention or cancer treatment. So this year it's goji berry; last year it was mangosteen, the year before, pomegranate, and the year before that, noni juice. So I do not think any one of them has a superior effect other than a diverse mixture of all kinds of fruits and berries. In addition, some of the berry juices have added sugar, which is not a good thing.
