June 19, 2005|Valli Herman

An obscure berry long used in traditional Tibetan and Chinese medicine is emerging as the new health food.

Also known as the wolfberry, the cranberry/cherry-flavored fruit is especially prized by the Chinese for its liver and vision-boosting properties--the better to see and digest rich foods.--valli herman
