With Goji berries bursting into the market place only recently it may seem that they're just another flash in the pan health fad. I'm here to tell you goji berries are the real deal and are here to stay.
Goji berries are a true super food. There are not many foods in the world that are loaded with such a large variety of nutrients. Goji berries contain over 18 amino acids, vitamin E, more vitamin C than oranges, more beta carotene than carrots and are loaded with B vitamins that are essential for good health. Out of all the amazing benefits one of the main reasons I love goji berries is that they are high in iron. It is best to get iron naturally rather than pill form since many iron pills are hard on your stomach and not easily absorbed. And if you're not a fan of iron-rich red meat or a vegetarian, these sweet treats are a great alternative to keep your iron levels where they should be. Vitamin A(beta carotene) is also much more healthful and effective when acquired through food. Vitamin A helps keep your eyes and eyesight healthy along with your hair, skin and nails. There are many ways to enjoy goji berries, you can add them to your smoothies, add them to a healthy trail mix. They are also great as a yogurt, cereal or salad topping(a much better option to the ultra-sweetened cranberry). I don't eat any refined sugar 90% of my diet so goji berries are a great alternative when you're having a craving for sweets. I just eat them straight out of the bag like candy. They are very filling since they are high in protein and fiber and actually taste great. Most importantly they are loaded with tons of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. If your body is full of all the right vitamins and minerals your appetite won't be out of control. Being deficient in vitamins and minerals will actually make you crave junk food and lots of it. So ditch the Skittles go for goji berries!
