Believe it or not, these tiny shrivelled up berries are one of the most nutrition dense foods on the planet. With 14 grams of protein per 100 grams, over 5 times the amount of vitamin C in oranges and more beta- carotene than any other food on earth, this Asian superfood can truly be called the “key to eternal youth”.
Originally used in traditional Tibetan and Chinese medicine, goji berries have been used to treat a large number of ailments such as:
– Reducing the risk of cancer
– Improving eyesight
– Assisting in weight loss
– Strengthening the immune system
– Normalising blood pressure and blood sugar levels
– Powerful antioxidant
– Strong anti-ageing properties
And the list goes on. You can add these “superfoods” to smoothies, yogurts, trail mixes and cereals. It is also available in a powder form, which can be mixed into juices and drinks or into gravies and cake batters. These berries taste a little bit like dried tomatoes or raisins and can easily blend in with most foods. So what are you waiting for? Get up and Goji!
