After all, it is no lie that berries are great for you, both health wise and beauty wise. It just so happens that the Goji berry belongs at the top of the list. So here are the Goji Berry Benefits. Read on to learn why this berry is “berry” good for you.

Antioxidants

Just like most, goji berries are just bursting with antioxidants. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, when it comes to antioxidants, the general truth is ANTIOXIDANTS = ANTI AGING for a number of reasons, but primarily because antioxidants fight off those nasty free radicals that can end up doing some serious damage if not taken care of.

Beta Carotene

Goji berries are a great source of beta-carotene, which means that it will give you “beta” eye function. Beat-carotene, converted into Vitamin A by the liver, actually helps improve your vision, especially in dim lighting, and has been proven to help prevent cataracts later in life.

Multi Vitamin Berry

Yep. Eating Goji berries is pretty much like taking your daily multi vitamin. You see, Gojo berries are packed with B Vitamins (B1, B2, and B6), Vitamin E, and Vitamin A as mentioned above. Obviously, it is healthy, but to move on to specifics, these vitamins are key in breaking down fat as well as amino acids at the same time converting carbs into energy. Basically, this means that it helps get rid of those unwanted pounds and even gives you the energy to work out and burn even more calories. So it is great for weight loss. Aside from Vitamins, goji berries have 22 minerals and 11 amino acids. How’s that for a natural health pill?

Polysaccharides

Poly- what? To keep things simple but not just saying, “It’s good for you.”, Polysaccharides is pretty much a carbohydrate molecule that is really great for you skin. It has anti inflammation properties and some type of mucilage that pretty much creates like a protective coat over your skin. It is also because of this that goji berries have been known to both prevent/help cure certain skin diseases.
