Goji Overdose

At this time, it is not known whether a goji overdose is even possible. Since overconsumption of any fruit can cause digestive upset, it is likely that this problem may also occur with overconsumption of goji. Overdose treatment (if necessary) will involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

Symptoms of a Goji Overdose

It is not known exactly what to expect from a goji overdose (or even if an overdose is possible). It is likely that overconsumption of goji berries or juice might cause digestive upset, as would overconsumption of almost any fruit. Beyond that, it is not known if more serious problems could occur.
 
Many goji supplements contain several different active ingredients. An overdose with such supplements could cause overdose symptoms due to any of the other active ingredients.
