Wolfberry - adverse effects

1 min read
Also known as Goji Berry, wolfberry is most commonly found in Asia.  Its use dates back to more than 2000 years. 
In recent years, the popularity of wolfberry has increased in areas where it has been touted as an anti-aging and anti-oxidant food. 
It is a sweet, red fruit that has been traditionally consumed raw, as a juice, in wine, or tea.
Goji berries can interfere with the safety and effectiveness of some medications. 
Evidence in humans shows that wolfberry can interfere with the metabolism of warfarin, a blood thinner used in anticoagulation therapy. 
When consumed in moderation, wolfberries are likely safe.
