I’m doing my best to eat more goji berries after I discovered how good they are for you. Unique among fruits because they contain all essential amino acids, goji berries pack the highest concentration of protein of any fruit. They are loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, they have 21 trace minerals, and are high in fibre.
Amazingly they contain 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as calcium, zinc, selenium and many other important trace minerals. There is no doubt that goji berries are a nutritional powerhouse. This amazing little superfruit also contains natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compounds.
Their powerful antioxidant properties and polysaccharides help to boost the immune system. It’s no wonder then, that in traditional Chinese medicine they are renowned for increasing strength and longevity.
