The Mighty Goji Berry
Goji berries are considered by most a very important superfood. It contains many vitamins and minerals that can help boost your immune system. The word goji is actually a Westernization of the Chinese word for the berry, which can be transliterated as "gouqi." The berry is a common ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine, dating back thousands of years.
The oblong red goji berry easily fulfills the requirements of a super food. It has a high concentration of phytochemicals, amino acids, vitamins B and C, and beta-carotene. Additionally, it contains 11 essential and 22 trace dietary minerals, is an outstanding source of the antioxidant lycopene, and is moderately high in alpha-linolenic acid. The goji berry also can supply extra protein, dietary fiber, calcium, zinc, and selenium. This nutritional profile gives the goji berry many health-enhancing properties.
This fruit protects against;
- Inflammatory diseases
- Age-related vision disorders (such as glaucoma and macular degeneration).
Studies have pointed to the berry's neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, and anticancer properties as well. This last benefit was underscored by a study published in the Chinese journal of Oncology, which indicated that cancer patients responded better to treatment while on a diet that included goji. However, the study recommended that individuals on blood-thinning medications avoid eating goji berries, which may interfere with the drugs.
Finally, the goji berry offers liver protection and can improve sexual function. One of the main ingredients in our Power Berry Blast is the goji berry.
