Healthy Food Tips: 10 Benefits of Goji Berries

Good Morning Everyone! Happy Monday!

This week,

we are going to be focusing on

superfoods from the book –

SUPERFOODS:

THE FOOD AND MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE

By: David Wolfe

I found a free PDF version of this book HERE.

First up – GOJI BERRIES  (AKA: Wolf Berries or Lycium Berries)

Five or ten years ago, these little gems were unheard of, however, today they are everywhere. But just why are these little orange balls of power so healthy? Here are 10 from the video below:

  1. Boost brain power and prevent neurodegenerative disease
  2. Detoxify the liver
  3. Boost fertility
  4. Ease mood and improve quality of sleep
  5. Improve eye health
  6. Balance blood sugar levels
  7. Boost the immune system
  8. Beautify skin
  9. Prevent heart disease
  10. Boost energy

But Goji Berries are so expensive!

Yes, if you buy them as GOJI BERRIES. However, did you know you could go to any Asian market and by them as LYCIUM BERRIES for about the price of raisins? Cool huh?!

Here is a video which will give you more details on the 10 benefits of GOJI BERRIES

About Tamara Hoerner (1253 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
