Fruit # 6 Goji Berries



Goji berries are often called a superfood because they contain chemical compounds called phytochemicals that are produced by plants. Phytochemicals in goji berries include polysaccharides, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin.


Goji berries have become wildly popular in the last couple of years because they are rich in vitamin A and C and selenium. Goji berries contain healthy antioxidants. Antioxidants are known for their immune-boosting qualities and their ability to fight harmful free radicals and inflammation.


They also contain a tremendous amount of copper, iron, and zinc, critical for producing energy. The small berries work as a stable energy source.


You will avoid fast energy spikes and sugar crashes that you can expect after eating artificial sweets and candy.


Goji berries are believed to protect against age-related eye diseases. They can help vision because they contain high levels of healthy antioxidants, especially zeaxanthin.

The same antioxidants can also stop damage from:

  • UV light

  • free radicals

  • oxidative stress.

You can buy goji berries in most health food stores and Asian or European markets. They can easily add fresh and dry goji berries to:

  • smoothies

  • trail mixes

  • oatmeal

  • yogurt

  • salads

  • baked goods

  • desserts

  • sweet sauces
