Question: What in the world is goji juice?
Answer: One of the best things you can do for your body!
It is easy to become over whelmed by all of the recent media attention surrounding beneficial foods. It can seem as though there is a new fad food every week, one that can help you to fight illness, lose weight or even one that can help you to improve your mood and fight off hormonal disorders. However, there are some foods that are worth paying attention to. Some foods are proven to be incredibly beneficial and have been shown to improve anything from skin blemishes to immunity. Goji juice is one of those foods and here are all of the reasons why.
The goji berry grows in the deep, isolated valleys of Tibet and Mongolia. It has been harvested for centuries but only recently has North America become aware of its many health benefits and advantages. Goji berry juice contains nineteen amino acids, seemingly endless amounts of antioxidants and can also provide the body with proteins. In addition to these valuable elements, goji juice also contains vitamins C, E and B, calcium, selenium, zinc and fatty acids. And in case that wasn’t enough it also contains high amounts of anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
The noticeable goji juice benefits which have been linked to daily intake, include increased energy levels, healthy digestion, regulated blood pressure and weight loss. It has also been shown to ease some of the more frustrating symptoms associated with pregnancy such as morning sickness and fatigue.
Although goji juice is said to improve the body as a whole, some areas are more susceptible to its benefits than others. For example, gogi juice has been shown to strengthen the heart and the cardiovascular system, making exercise and physical labor seem less challenging for those who are trying to lose weight. This is why it is believed by some that goji juice can actually slow the aging process.
This wonder-juice is a great addition to any homemade energy drinks and can even be added to children’s beverages as a way to ensure proper nutrition. Though juice is the most popular and common way to introduce the goji berry into your daily diet, it is available in dried form and is the perfect, healthy mid-day snack.
If you have not heard of goji juice and wish to try it, visit your local health food store and ask if they carry any goji berry products. And remember, although goji juice is all natural and for the most part beneficial you may want to consult your physician if you feel it will affect any existing health issues.
