Goji Berry- A Good Supplement For RP
Goji berry has been explored for eye conditions such as, retinitis pigmentosa, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. It is rich in Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (substances found to counteract oxidative stress) and zeaxanthin and lutein, carotenoids that form the “macular pigment” in the area of the eye known as the macula.
Macular pigment is believed to be important for vision and for absorbing blue light (excessive exposure of this portion of the visible light spectrum, emitted by sunlight and electronic devices, may damage light-sensitive cells).
In a small study published in the International Journal of Ophthalmology in 2018, for instance, researchers found that 90 days of goji supplementation increased visual function, macular pigment optical density, and the body’s levels of zeaxanthin in people with early age-related macular degeneration.
Goji berry (Lycium barbarum) is a type of fruit that grows on an evergreen shrub native to China, Mongolia, and the Tibetan Himalayas. Also known as wolfberry, the goji berry is rich in vitamin C, zeaxanthin, lutein, betaine, and compounds known as Lycium barbarum polysaccharides. Many Chinese put several goji berries in the water and drink water with goji berry, or put some goji berry to cook meat soup, it’s a good way to keep body and eye health.
