Supercharge Your Well Being

 

Goji berries, also known as wolfberries, are one of the most nutritionally-rich fruits on the planet.

Praised for thousands of years in Asia for health benefits including longevity, vitality, and energy, goji berries are now being celebrated in Western cultures for their superfood potential.

There are numerous perks to this versatile fruit and I’ve put together a few here for you.

 

Overall Wellness

One study showed those who consumed goji berry products had significantly increased energy levels, athletic performance, quality of sleep, ability to focus on activities, and mental acuity.

Subjects also experienced significantly reduced fatigue and stress, and had better bowel movements.1

 

Eye Health

Goji berries are an excellent source of selenium, a mineral essential for optimal eye health.

One study even found that, subjects who ate goji berries had increased antioxidant levels in their blood and showed less signs of aging and damage to their eyes.2

 

Optimal Cell Growth

The unique polysaccharides (long chain sugars) found in goji berries are known to have immune-supporting effects.

One research study showed that these polysaccharides “might significantly inhibit PC-3 tumor growth” and “both the tumor volume and weight of the [goji berry] treatment group were significantly lower than those of the control group.”3

Whether you are craving a quick and healthy snack or looking for a functional food with multiple health benefits goji berries are the perfect choice!
