Lycium's value to human health was explored in China thousands of years ago. It has been
cited in several ancient Chinese pharmacopoeia since the Tang Dynasty for its multiple health benefits such as nourishing the Yin, liver and kidney and nourishing the blood. Lycium fruits
are used in many herbal formulas(such as tea, soup, stew and wine) to maintain overall
health when suffering from chronic conditions, such as weariness of the loins and legs,
dizziness and tinnitus, visual degeneration, headaches, insomnia, chronic liver diseases,
diabetes and hypertension. Modern scientists have extensively studied Lycium fruits for their
nutrients and medical benefits. Also include maintaining healthy blood pressure and blood
1. Immune System Support: Many studies have shown Lycium fruits increase the lymphocyte
transformation rate and improve the macrophage phagocytic function in animals. Lycium
assists spleen lymphocyte transformation induced by Concavalin A. Lycium increases the
antibody reaction to T cell-dependant antigen (SRBC) which means that it selectively strengthen the T cell immune
response, it is believed to be the result of increasing the number of E receptors on the surface of T cells or increasing the numbers of T cells directly. Lycium also can be used to reduce lead toxicity by inhibiting the reduction of T cells and delayed allergy activity induced by lead. Besides, in a study it was showed that after taking Lycium, lysozyme, IgG, IgA and interleukin 2 (IL-2) in serum increased in all participants.
2. Anti-aging and Antioxidant: Lycium fruit functions to maintain normal cell growth as well as improve DNA restoration and repair. It also has the function of anti-peroxidation of free radicals, therefore changing the electrical parameters of cell membranes
to the normal range. In one study in China, a 48% increase of Super Oxide Dismutase and a
12% increase of hemoglobin were found in serum for all senior participants. A 65% decrease of LPO in serum was found in the same study. This indicates Lycium fruit may be a potent
anti-oxidant, which may slow the aging process.
3. Cancer Prevention: Other studies from China show that Lycium fruit extract inhibits the
gene mutation induced by TA98 and TA1008. Some scientists believe that Lycium fruit may be a very good supplement to prevent liver cancer because it exerts liver protection and anticancer effects at the same time.
Seventy-nine advanced cancer patients in a clinical trial in China were treated with LAK/IL-2 combined with Lycium extract. Initial results of the treatment from 75 available patients
indicate that objective regression of cancer was achieved in patients with malignant melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, colorectal carcinoma, lung cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and
malignant hydrothorax. The response rate of patients treated with LAK/IL-2 plus Lycium extract was 40.9% while that of patients treated with LAK/IL-2 alone was 16.1% (P<0.05). LAK/IL-2 plus Lycium extract treatment led to a marked increase in NK and LAK cell activity than LAK/IL-2 alone. The mean remission in patients treated with LAK/IL-2 plus Lycium also lasted significantly longer. The results indicate that Lycium may be used as an adjuvant in the biotherapy of cancer. Another study from China showed Lycium increased
the sensitivity to radiation therapy and enhanced the immune system for cancer patients.
Japanese researchers reported Lycium could inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
4. Liver Protection: One study in China discovered that the hepaprotective component from
Lycium helps counteract carbon tetrachloride induced hepatotoxicity. Another study from China found Lycium exerts hepaprotection through inhibiting the lipid peroxidation of liver cells in
aging mice. Lycium helps to repair liver cell injury induced by CCl4 and facilitates recovery from hepatic necrosis.
5. Hemopoiesis Promoter: A study in China showed Lycium facilitated stem cell proliferation
and increased the number of monocytes in bone marrow. Lycium helps the monocytes to
convert to matured leukocytes.
6. Vision improvement: Lycium fruits were very popular for their vision improvement properties
in ancient China. Modern scientists found Lycium fruits reduce dark adapting time and
improve vision under subdued light. Physiologic scotoma decreased and vitamin A increased
in patients after taking Lycium fruits.
