Boasting a high Vitamin A content of 26,822 UI, Goji Berries make an excellent source of this vitamin. Just one ounce provides 36% of the Daily Value of Vitamin A—more than carrots, sweet potatoes, and spinach! Vitamin A is essential for maintaining the integrity and health of all surface tissues; this includes: the skin, lining of the respiratory tract, gut, bladder, inner ear, and eye. Science also highlights the role of Vitamin A in maintaining healthy vision and immune system.
Goji Berries are often associated with longevity because of their high concentration of antioxidants. This is important because antioxidants fight free radicals that damage the body’s cells. Gojis specifically contain Carotenoids, Flavonoids, and Phenols — three antioxidants that also play various roles supporting different systems in the body. Carotenoids support healthy vision and protect against macular degeneration. Research suggests that Flavonoids nourish the cardiovascular system and aid in “protecting the cardiovascular system against cardiovascular disease.” Phenols provide extra support in preventing cellular damage from free radicals. The combination of these antioxidants, along with Goji Berries’ other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients create an extremely nourishing superfood.
Goji Berries contain 4 grams of complete protein in each 1 oz serving—more than Acai, Blueberries, and Blackberries. As a complete protein, Gojis stand out as a superfood with 18 amino acids, including all 8 essential amino acids. There are certain amino acids our bodies cannot produce so it is critical we get it from our food source. A complete profile of amino acids create a complete protein, and in turn forms the building blocks for our muscles.
Considered a source of vitality for over 2000 years, Goji Berries are an important superfruit in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Long-term use of the goji was considered beneficial for strengthening the body, keeping fit, prolonging life, and easing life through all the seasons. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, goji berries can aid the “liver channel” and the “kidney channel”—helping to nourish and tonify these organs, improve jing, and support eye function.
Bright red Goji Berries grow on large bushes, producing several hundred fruit per plant. Imlak’esh Gojis are grown organically by small farmers who utilize traditional practices. Gojis have been cultivated along the fertile floodplains of the Yellow River for more than 700 years, earning a reputation throughout the world for exceptional quality sometimes described as “red diamonds.”
