A superfruit is a fruit that is nutritionally dense in many ways, usually containing  high level of vitamins/minerals, protein and high level of antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E) that help to fight the free radicals in your body that are thought to cause harm to your tissues, organs and other bodily systems. Goji Berry is one such Superfruit.

Goji berries are one of the most nutritionally-rich fruits on the planet, packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants. The Goji berry fruit flavour resembles a combination of cranberries and cherries, and like acai, is a delicious superfood which you can enjoy in a number of ways.

 

Often called a Wolfberry, Goji berries are considered a complete source of protein and regarded as a top longevity and strength-building food. A single Goji berry can contain up to 21 trace minerals, including zinc, iron, copper, calcium and 18 different amino acids.

 

The plant that produces these delicious gojis, Lycium barbarum, is a unique strain that has been used in Asian traditions for thousands of years.

 

Lets read about some of the benefits of Goji :

  • They are high in antioxidants, specifically the carotenoids (like beta-carotene) and zeaxanthin (compound that absorbs blue light and help protect the eyes).
  • The antioxidants in the berries are thought to help fight off free radicals in the body.
  • Goji Berries have about 20 different vitamins and minerals, making them one of the most nutritionally beneficial foods available.
  • They have 18 different amino acids (the building blocks to protein).
  •  This is super yummy and super high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Eat straight out of the bag, or as a dressing or a dip for fruits, veggies or salads.
