What Are Goji Berries?
Goji berries, scientifically known as Lycium barbarum, are also known as wolfberries, fructus lycii and gougizi. These dried red berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years. They have a sweet taste and can be eaten raw or consumed as a juice or herbal tea. They can also be taken as extracts, powders and tablets.
All dark blue or red berries, including goji berries, contain high levels of antioxidants, which may help protect the body against damage from free radicals. What’s unique about goji berries is that they contain specific antioxidants called Lycium barbarum polysaccharides, which provide a variety of impressive health benefits. In addition, goji berries provide 11 essential amino acids—more than other common berries.
What Are The Main Benefits Of Taking Goji Berries?
Goji Berries boost immune system and flu protection
A boosted immune system and flu protection can go hand-in-hand. The vitamins in goji berries may be able to increase and support both. Early lab testing found goji berries help enhance the effectiveness of flu vaccinations in aged mice. This is important, because the flu vaccine doesn’t always provide adequate protection against the virus. This study suggests that goji berries may prevent subsequent infections for older adults who’ve received a flu vaccine.
Goji Berries aid with weight loss
Goji berries pack healthy energy into small servings. Their rich, sweet taste, along with their high-fibre content, can help you stay on track with eating healthy. Turn to them for a light snack to prevent overindulgence at mealtime. Add them in your yogurt or salad in the same way you would use raisins. Their nutrition value as a low-calorie, low-sugar option makes them a perfect substitute for other dried fruits with higher sugar content. A 30 gram serving of goji berries has around 100 calories.
Goji Berries provide antioxidants for eyes and skin
Sources have cited the high level of antioxidants in goji berries, especially zeaxanthin. It’s the zeaxanthin that gives goji berries, saffron, and bell peppers their bright color. Antioxidants protect cells against breaking down when they’re exposed to elements such as smoke and radiation. What’s more, foods with healthy levels of antioxidants are often high in fibre and low in unhealthy fats.
The same study also found that older adults who ate a daily dietary supplementation with goji berries for 90 days had less hypopigmentation and less drusen, or yellow deposits, in their eyes.
Goji Berries maintain blood sugar
Sweet goji berries may be your new favorite food if you have a particular sweet tooth. Goji berries can help potentially lower blood sugar, improve sugar tolerance, alleviate insulin resistance and improve and recover cells that help produce insulin. Talk to your doctor before you start adding goji berries to your diet, especially if you’re using medications to manage blood sugar. If you do start regularly eating them, you may want to check your blood sugar more often.
