In recent years, goji berries have become so popular that almost everyone knows that they're good for you! But the power of goji berries to support your health goes far beyond the antioxidant content of this superfood.
Goji berries grow in some of the most extreme climates on earth and contain compounds known as sesquiterpenoids, which actually stimulate the pituitary and the pineal gland to improve secretion of human growth hormone (HGH). For most people, HGH levels decline significantly as we age to the extent that a 70 year old will have only 1/10th the HGH levels of a 20 year old. Lower HGH levels lead to poor energy production, muscle wasting, and increased tendency to put on body fat. Being able to naturally support HGH production can help us maintain youthful energy, vitality, and vigor throughout our lives!
Goji berries are also a great eye food! They contain two specific antixoidants, zeaxanthin and lutein, which target the eyes. The long chain polysaccharides in goji berries have also been found to have great immunomodulating properties.
And best of all, there's so many delicious ways to enjoy them! You can eat the dried berries, soak them in water, blend them into drinks, blend them into ice creams, and much more! Leave us a comment to let us know what your favorite way to eat goji berries is!
