There are SO many studies (like this study) out there claiming a variety of health and beauty benefits of goji berries, but what we know for sure is that they are loaded with beta-carotene which helps promote healthy skin AND Goji berries contain a high amount of vitamin C (250% recommended daily value in 1 oz!). Sounds like an immune system booster to me. They also have one of the highest rankings on the ORAC scale (oxygen radical absorbance capacity), which measures their antioxidant activity.
Now it sure sounds like I am trying to sell you some goji berries...but I really just wanted to share with you something that is relatively new to me that I have been enjoying! Let me know what you think.
P.S. For some other uses....You could throw them on top of a salad, or use them as a yogurt or oatmeal topping. You might also like throwing a handful into your homemade trail mix. They would go great with some almonds and dark chocolate. Have you ever tried these berries before? How do you use them? Comment below!
