Chinese Goji berries

A new superfood said to boost peoples' sex lives and the immune system is set to hit the supermarkets. Chinese Goji berries are selling so fast in health food stores suppliers are struggling to keep up. But health experts say people should not get caught up in the hype as conventional fruit and veg is just as healthy and cheaper.

A small bag of the berries costs £4 and it is recommended people take a handful a day.

They are packed with 21 trace minerals and 18 amino acids and are also said to shift cellulite.

But the British Nutrition Foundation said Goji mania is being driven by clever marketing rather than good science.

Goji berries will go on sale in Tesco later this month and Waitrose in October.
