An exotic fruit known as the wolfberry may be a powerful addition to our arsenal of free radical fighters. Wolfberry, the fruit of Lycium barbarum or L. chinense, also called goji berry, is an excellent source of antioxidant agent in the daily dietary supplement. The active compounds include plant-derived polyphenolic antioxidants; carotenoids (beta-caro-tene, zeaxanthin, lutein, cryptoxanthin, and lycopene); vitamins including C, B1, B2, and niacin; more than 30 essential and trace minerals including zinc, iron, copper, calcium, selenium, and phosphorus; polysaccharides; and 18 amino acids including isoleucine, tryptophan, leucine and arginine. Wolfberry is found to have the highest ORAC values of all fruits. Based on laboratory analysis of Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), a method set by scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston, the ORAC value of wolf-berry is 25,300 units per 100 grams, nearly eight times that of pomegranate. Compared with other highly potent antioxidants derived from traditional Chinese herbs, wolfberry was even more effective in scavenging superoxide radicals and in preventing their formation.
