Why goji berries are so great for you
Packed with 18 different amino acids and eight essential amino acids, including isoleucine and tryptophan, Sunfood Goji Berries are one of the highest antioxidant containing fruits in the world, typically containing 2-4 times the amount found in blueberries. Goji berries are an excellent source of trace minerals, such as zinc, iron, copper, calcium and phosphorous, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E.
While fortifying the immune system and helping to stimulate the body to produce more natural human growth hormone, studies with elderly people have shown that these powerful berries can decrease the signs of aging, increase the function of T cells and white cell interleukin-2 while uplifting mood, increasing optimism, improving appetite and encouraging better sleep patterns.
How to eat these
You probably don’t need to be told how to eat dried fruit. They’re great in all the obvious places — trail mixes, energy bars, primal chocolate concoctions, and smoothies.
But I would like to call your attention to one particularly beautiful usage of goji berries — if you blend a handful into your favorite milk (raw dairy milk, or just a tablespoon of coconut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter, plus water), you’ll end up with the most gorgeous golden milk you ever saw, with a magical goji-infused flavor. It’s like drinking sunlight! Use a high-speed blender for best results, but I’ve done this with standard blenders, and it works just fine.
