Why are Goji berries a superfood?


In the realm of nutrition, few foods carry the mystique and nutritional reputation quite like goji berries. These tiny red jewels, also known as Lycium barbarum, have been a staple in traditional eastern medicine for centuries, from Tibet to China. Let's look at the abundant nutritional treasures that make goji berries a true powerhouse and earns it the superfood status

Vitamins: Goji berries boast a rich profile of vitamins, making them a valuable addition to your daily diet. Among the key players are Vitamin A, crucial for vision, immune system and reproduction; Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant supporting the immune system; Vitamin E, known for its skin-nourishing properties; and a range of B-vitamins, each contributing to various aspects of metabolic health.

Minerals: In the mineral department, goji berries deliver a diverse array of essential elements. Copper, selenium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and manganese are all present, contributing to functions ranging from bone health and immune support to nerve transmission and fluid balance.

Antioxidants and Beyond: At the heart of goji berries' superfood status lies their impressive antioxidant content. These compounds, including flavonoids and polyphenols, help in combating oxidative stress caused by free radicals in the body. Goji berries score at around 25000 on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale.

Lycium barbarum Polysaccharides (LBPs): But goji berries don't stop there. Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBPs), the ‘good sugars’ in Goji berries, add another layer of immune-boosting goodness. The expansive realm of scientific studies delving into the properties of LBPs showcases the extensive interest in this component. In future blog posts, we'll explore some of these studies to unravel the full spectrum of potential benefits that LBPs could bring to the table.

Amino Acids: Goji berries don't just offer vitamins and minerals; they provide a range of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. From essential amino acids like leucine and lysine to non-essential ones like alanine and glutamic acid, goji berries contribute to your body's protein needs.

Fats with a Purpose: While goji berries aren't a high-fat food, they do contain beneficial unsaturated fatty acids, including oleic acid and linoleic acid. These healthy fats play a role in maintaining heart health and overall well-being.

Protein and Fiber: For those seeking plant-based protein sources, goji berries fit the bill. Alongside protein, they pack a punch in the fiber department, supporting digestive health and providing a satisfying snack option.

As you savor the delightful burst of flavor in each tiny berry, remember that you're not just enjoying a tasty treat—you're unlocking a treasure trove of nutrients. Embrace the ‘superpowers’ of goji berries, and let them be a vibrant addition to your journey towards a new you.

Have a blessed day!
