So here's my first post, I am really excited to share an amazing super fruit that I have been including in my diet for a couple months now,
TADAAAAA... Goji Berries! Yes these are amazing antioxidant rich little chewy resin like berries which have more Vitamin C than Pomegranates and Oranges combined! Almost at 250% of Vit C per serving, They are raw, vegan excellent for those who are diet specific.
Dating back in history, it was grown in the Himalayas and used by Chinese practitioners in various medicines. Monks from Tibet believed that it is associated with longevity of life.
Also it is interesting to note that apart from its incredible nutritional value it is also has highest ratings on ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) which measures their antioxidant activity .
They belong to the botanical family of Solanaceae (which Btw I learnt in High school as I am science Grad and botany was one of my main subjects).
So all said and done I urge to try these, I have been popping these as I battle stuffy nose and cold like symptoms right this minute. I also love to sprinkle them over greek yogurt and along with other berries and chia seeds. My Son as become a lover of Goji berries like me!
You can find them at health food stores, I bought mine online at Soap.com. It's best to buy in bulk as the cost comes down. Hoping you guys are going to try it and let me know if you did!
Have a great day!
