Benefits of goji berries

Categories:

You might not have heard of goji berries, but their claimed health benefits could encourage you to check them out. Also known as wolfberries, goji berries have long been enjoyed in China and the Himalayas for their sweet taste and bright color. Their history as a medicinal plant has roots in ancient China, where goji berries still are used to treat eye, liver, and kidney ailments. A host of additional nutritional and medical claims have made the fruit popular in the United States. Read on to decide if you should consider adding these delicious berries to your healthy diet.

Where to get them
This sweet-tart fruit is usually sold dried and looks like bright red raisins. You can also enjoy goji berries fresh off the vine (they’re surprisingly easy to grow in warm climates). Most supermarkets sell dried goji berries in the bulk section. They also come prepackaged.

As with all berries, goji berries have vitamins and other antioxidants that can help keep the body healthy.  Eating two or more servings of fruit a day is usually recommended for optimum health benefits, and goji berries are a great alternative to other more traditional berries. You can also consider growing goji berry plants. They thrive in the ground or are suitable for container gardening in colder climates. In the unlikely event you don’t like the taste, they’ll at least make a beautiful addition to your garden.

What makes them so good?
Goji berries are high in vitamin C and fiber, and low in calories. They are also a good source of iron and vitamin A. One serving of about four ounces of goji berries even provides nearly 10 percent of the suggested amount of dietary protein, a surprising amount for a fruit.

The complex carbohydrates that make goji berries so yummy raise blood sugar slowly, so you won’t experience a sugar crash afterwards.
