Okay, so maybe one plant can't exactly freeze time, but it can certainly slow the clock on your aging skin. The goji berry has many health benefits, but the strongest is it's potential to help decrease the formation of fine lines & wrinkles, dark age spots and more. How, you ask? Well, this tiny fruit is packed with antioxidants and fatty & amino acids that work together to combat aged, tired looking skin. Let's dive a little deeper to learn more!

Asian Roots
The goji berry was first discovered by Buddhist Monks in the Tibetan Mountains. They found that the monks who incorporated the berry into their regular diet, actually lived longer than the ones who did not. Now, the goji berry is found primarily in Asia, mostly in China, & is frequently used for Chinese medicinal purposes that go beyond skincare.

Goji Berry Benefits 
Akar uses the goji berry in many of the skincare products because of it's skillful abilities to keep aging away. The berries antioxidants reduce the amount of free radicals on your skin (free radicals bring harm to your skin cells) & the amino acids increase your growth hormone levels, while the fatty acids help to plump and replenish the look of youthful skin. The goji berry skin benefits also include reduction of scar appearance, the healing of sun damaged skin, & even the reduction of skin inflammation.

Beyond skincare, the goji berry is also strong in combatting heart disease and major illnesses, as it also boosts the immune system, due to its high quantity of antioxidants.
