Are Goji berries good for you? - Britt's Superfoods

Are Goji berries good for you?

The short answer is yes!

Goji berries which are sometimes called ‘wolfberries’ have long been used in traditional medicines to treat conditions of the eye, lungs, kidneys and liver.

Most dark blue, red and orange berries, contain high levels of antioxidants, which may help protect the body against damage from free radicals. Goji berries uniquely contain Lycium barbarum polysaccharides, which are thought to provide a variety of impressive health benefits.

 In addition, goji berries provide 11 essential amino acids, much more than other common berries.  They are also a source of carbohydrates for energy and amino acids to help meet the body's protein needs. It has also been recently demonstrated that the Goji berry can alleviate low-level anxiousness in animals.

The Goji berry may also have positive effects on blood sugar levels. Animal and test-tube studies have shown that goji berry extract may have positive effects on blood sugar control. 

Goji berries are loaded with fibre, iron, and vitamins A and C. They are also a good source of proteins and antioxidants- what’s not to love?

We add Goji berry to our Elixir Vitality juice which is an incredible anti-oxidant and provides a natural energy boost. The high levels of vitamins and nutrients it contains also boost the immune system, support blood cell development and assist with healthy skin, nails and vision.
