The wolfberry, harvested from the Lycium barbarum plant, has been cultivated and dried across remote regions of China for thousands of years. With documented uses dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), this legendary whole food has played a role in traditional Chinese cooking, medicine and culture. Today, the wolfberry continues to be consumed as part of a healthy diet—often eaten dried or added to soups and herbal teas for its naturally sweet taste and fortifying nutrients.
With a nutritional profile that includes polyphenols, polysaccharides and a unique array of trace nutrients, wolfberries have long been consumed for their goodness. A single serving of Young Living Ningxia Organic Dried Wolfberries has only 45 calories, is low in fat and packed with amino acids, the key building blocks of proteins. Wolfberry puree is a key component of Young Living’s NingXia Red and NingXia Zyng, and wolfberry seed oil is an active ingredient in Young Living Wolfberry Eye Cream.
