Lycii Berry
Lycium chinense Mill.

Family: Solanaceae.

Other Names: Chinese Wolfberry; Chinese boxthorn; lyciet (French); Chinesischer Bocksdorn (German); licio (Italian).

Description:Chinese wolfberry is a woody shrub of 1 m in height, with thorny stems bearing bright green, hairless, lance-shaped leaves (broadest in the lower half), purple flowers with a tube of 1.5 mm long and bright orange--red berries, about 10 mm long. A close relative is the so-called Duke of Argyll's tea-tree (L. barbarum, = L. halimifolium). It is a larger shrub of up to 3 m in height with larger berries (up to 20 mm long), ovate-lanceolate leaves (broadest in the middle) and a longer corolla tube (2.5 - 3 mm).

Origin: Eastern Asia (L. chinense); China mainly Ningxia Province (L. barbarum). Both species are naturalised in North America (L. barbarum in Europe) and are cultivated in China and Malaysia.

Parts Used: Fresh or dried berries of both species (gou qi zi - Lycii fructus), nowadays also the dried roots (Lycii radicis cortex). The leaves of L. chinense are a green vegetable in Chinese cooking and are produced commercially on a large scale.

Therapeutic Category: Traditional tonic.

Uses and Properties: The berries are one of the most important traditional medicines in China. They are used as a general tonic to improve the blood, strengthen the body, address strength/muscle loss, protect the liver and specifically to improve eyesight.

Active Ingredients: The berries contain large quantities of amino acids (sip to 5%), polysaccharides and carotenoids (including zeaxanthin, physalien and cryptoxanthin). The berries also contain essential oil with sesquiterpenoids (dehydro-u-cyperone and solavetivone). Numerous triterpenes and steroidal triterpenoids have been isolated from the seeds. The bark is rich in polyamines (kukoamine A) and small peptides (lyciumarnide, lyciurnine A); leaves contain several steroids, including with anolide A.

Health Effects: Lyciumine A and B inhibit renin and ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme); kukoarnine A reduces blood pressure. Chinese studies have shown antioxidant, hypoglycaemic, lipid-lowering, hypotensive and immune stimulating effects.

Status: Traditional health.
