For two days now I’ve been going to town in goji berries! Not sure what prompted it but after reading all the benefits I think my body is just smarter than my mind and it knows exactly what it need so I’ll continue to feed it what it’s craving without thinking so much!
Goji berries have been extensively researched for their ability to generate general feelings of well-being, improve neurologic/psychologic traits, support better gastrointestinal health and bowel functions, help build stronger musculoskeletal systems, and improve cardiovascular health. They’re easy to add to meals to boost energy levels and performance.
They’ve been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more 2000 years Whoa!!!
They provide 11 essential amino acids!!
They pack 500 times more vitamin C than an orange!!!
Rich in iron, copper, zinc, selenium, vitamins A and C!
Goji berry benefits include the ability to naturally treat diabetes , hypertension, infectious diseases, and common illnesses like the cold or a fever. Traditionally, they’ve also been used to fight depression and anxiety or other mood disorders. They’re a great source of antioxidants known as beta-carotene, plus other phytonutrients that help protect skin and eye health. Thanks to their ability to reduce blood glucose, regulate cholesterol levels and keep triglycerides at an ideal balance, they’re also shown to prevent heart disease.
Here’s some of the major benefits of goji berries:

Sold I’ll continue to eat these delicious berries! I like to freeze them so they’re crunchy and not so chewy but I like them all the ways! I mix them with pumpkin seeds and coconut or almonds or pistachios whatever nuts I happen to have on hand.
