Goji Berries are the sweetest superfood on the block. Delicious in flavor, no one would have guessed they would be so good for you. China has been using Goji berries for centuries to treat a variety of illnesses and medical conditions, but lately this fruit has been all the rage in the United States. So what’s so great about these tiny, red berries? The beauty is found within.
Goji Berries pack quite a nutritional punch. ¼ cup of dried Goji berries contains 3 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 140% of your daily recommended Vitamin A, 50% of your daily recommended Vitamin C, and a full day’s worth of Vitamin B2, Potassium, and Iron. They contain 18 amino acids and 5 healthy unsaturated fatty acids. With all these nutrients, you’ll probably find no reason not to try Goji berries. But wait there’s more:
Goji berries are also very high in antioxidants, especially zeaxanthin, which gives Goji berries their bright color. Antioxidants help to protect your cells from harmful and damaging elements. They also have the ability to help protect from some forms of cancer that latch on to healthy cells. Goji berries are a perfect snack and have shown to help lower cholesterol and help with weight loss. There is also some research showing Goji berries’ ability to lower blood pressure and lower risk of heart attack or stroke. Those with diabetes can benefit from eating Goji berries, as they help to control the release of sugar into the bloodstream. This regulates the sugar, preventing extreme highs and lows that arise from imbalanced glucose levels. Research has shown Goji berries to show significant hypoglycemic effects by increasing glucose responsiveness in the body.
Goji Berries are perfectly good on their own, but feel free to get creative with them. They go great with your favorite salad, and even in yogurt. Replace your blueberries with Goji berries (or keep both!) in your pancakes, or add them to your cereal or oatmeal. They also make a tasty, healthy addtion when baking all different types of cookies and muffins. You can even use them to decorate your baked goods because their bright red color is so appealing to the eye.
