Goji juice has been touted as a cure-all for conditions ranging from high blood pressure and cholesterol to gastrointestinal problems. Although a few laboratory studies suggest that goji extracts might have some anti-cancer effects, there are no human trials to support the idea that goji juice can treat or prevent any specific diseases — including cancer. There's also some concern that goji juice may interact with certain medications, including drugs used to treat diabetes.
Like many fruit juices, goji juice is a rich source of vitamins and antioxidants. Drink goji juice if you like the taste and your doctor approves. But don't invest a lot of money on goji juice as a cure for cancer or any other disease. Instead, watch for future results of clinical trials involving goji juice to see if it lives up to any of the claims made by its promoters.
