Health Benefits of Goji Berry Powder
1) Goji berries are rated #1 on the the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale, the most widely accepted system for measuring the antioxidant level of foods. Antioxidants are protective nutrients that may protect against chronic diseases and premature aging by fighting off damaging free radicals in the body.
2) Goji berry powder contains 18 amino acids, which help build protein, repair our muscles, and support metabolism. More importantly, goji berries contain 8 out of 9 essential amino acids, which are compounds that our bodies do not produce naturally and must obtain through food.
3) Goji berry powder is an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Both of these powerful vitamins are important for boosting the immune system to ward off illness. Vitamin A also plays a special role in eye function; it supports the health of the retina. Vitamin C helps repair tissues, heal wounds, and supports the cardiovascular system. Per ounce, goji berry powder contains even more vitamin C than oranges.
4) Goji berries may also delay age-related eye diseases. Taurine, a compound in goji berries, was found to be helpful in protecting eyes from diabetes-related vision loss, according to a study by researchers from the University of Sydney. Another study, published in the February 2001 edition ofOptometry and Vision Science found that goji berry supplementation may slow the progression of macular degeneration in elderly patients.
