According to a study by two Welsh universities, Goji berries are an effective remedy for fascioliasis and schistosomiasis. It turns out that goji berries contain a compound that is active in fighting the parasites that cause these two life-threatening tropical diseases. Approximately 17 million people around the globe carry fascioliasis infections. And it’s estimated that 600 million people carry schistosomiasis, which is a deadly parasitic illness similar to malaria. Researchers are hopeful that a drug can be developed using a compound in goji berries, which are also beneficial for eye, liver, and kidney health.
- According to a recently published Welsh study, goji berries contain a compound that is effective in treating two parasitic tropical diseases, fascioliasis and schistosomiasis.
- Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease similar to malaria that claims up to 300,000 lives per year.
- Researchers are hopeful that a safe and effective drug can be developed using a compound in goji berries to treat these two diseases.
"Schistosomiasis is spread by a waterborne parasite, while fascioliasis is spread by a foodborne parasite. Both of the diseases are treated with a single drug that’s widely administered to the population where the diseases are widespread."
