Grown in Himalaya, goji berries are one of the most nutritionally dense fruit on the planet. Packed with vitamins and minerals, a complete protein source, and high in powerful antioxidants, it’s no wonder why goji berries are a superfood!
Goji berries contain minerals such as zinc, iron, and calcium. They are also high in vitamin B1, B2, B6, and E. Containing 18 different amino acids, goji berries are a complete source of protein- disproving the misconception that vegans cannot find any complete sources of protein. They have anti-aging properties; decreases the chance of having cancer, a stroke, a heart attack, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease; increases metabolic rate; increases weight loss; healthier bones and teeth; healthier blood; better eyesight; decreased mood swings.
Goji berries have an interesting flavor, sort of mix between chocolate and cherries. It makes a great snack to just munch on or a great colorful topping on a dessert, like my raw vegan brownies.
You can purchase goji berries at any local health food store.
