3) Goji berry powder is an excellent source of vitamins A and C even more vitamin C than oranges. Vitamin A also plays a special role in eye function; it supports the health of the retina. Vitamin C helps repair tissues, heals wounds, and supports the cardiovascular system. Both of these powerful vitamins are important for boosting the immune system to ward off illness.
