Nutrition Corner: Goji Berries
These berries have been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Goji berries have an impressive list of health benefits, including their ability to increase brain function, energy, and digestion. Goji berries contain a wide assortment of antioxidants and phytonutrients that help our bodies fight disease and function optimally. Conveniently, the small size of these berries allows us to get health benefits through consumption of a small amount. For example, weight for weight, goji berries contain 500 times the amount of Vitamin C found in oranges.
