Goji berries, also known as wolfberries, are native to China and have been used in Eastern medicine for thousands of years as a super-fruit full of benefits. They get their bright red color from the antioxidant zeaxanthin (found also in bell peppers and saffron) and are typically dried for preservation.
Not only are goji berries high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, they’re unlike other fruits because they contain all essential amino acids. One serving might help you feel full and energized thanks to high levels of protein and fiber. Their vitamin C and trace mineral content boosts the immune system with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory qualities.
Goji berries also support brain functions by blocking toxins that could lead to Alzheimer’s disease and other health issues.
