There is a secret to Asia people looking young: According to reports, this is as a result of their penchant for consuming some fruits and herbs. Goji Berry or wolfberry is said to be part of this.

It is also regarded as a superfood especially to the people of China, who have been using it medicinally since the 3rd Century.
The goji berry is grown across China, but people regard the ones from Ningxia region as the best, given the place's mineral-rich soil and vines.
The Chinese view the goji berry as a both a fruit and a herb. They claimed it is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants, amino acids and trace minerals.
The berry is believed to boost liver and kidney function.
"Legend has it that more than 2,000 years ago a doctor visited a village in China where everyone was more than 100 years old. He discovered that they all drank from a well that was surrounded by goji berries. And the theory was that, as the fruit ripened, it would fall into the well and its vitamin-packed contents would seep into the water. Tales are also told of a 17th-Century herbalist called Li Qing Yuen who ate goji berries every day and was said to have lived until he was 252 years old."
Hopefully, this fruit will also be available for Nigerians to consume.
