What are Goji Berries, the So Called "Superfood"
So what is a goji berry? Some think it’s the superfood that contains the fountain of youth. Others decided it’s just an ordinary orange-red berry grown throughout Asia. So which statement is correct and why do people believe such things? We’re going to dive into the mysteries behind goji’s history and the reasons why you should be eating it daily.
Goji berries are native to China (particularly the northwestern area) and were a common source of food for the people long ago. Myths say around 2,000 years in the past, a doctor went to a village and found men and women living past the age of 100. When he asked how this was possible, the villagers told him there’s a small well they would drink from daily which is surrounded by goji berries. As the berries ripen, they fall from their branches into the well and the water would absorb all their nutrients and vitamins. One woman supposedly lived to 252 years old because of the superfood.
So why doesn’t anyone eat the berries anymore? One of the few reasons people don’t eat goji is because it costs more than they can afford. Some bags cost $10 where others might cost double that.
But is that the only reason? Why wouldn’t people spend more money for a longer life? Many people do not believe the myths and legends. Whether it is true or not, people aren’t willing to try and see for themselves.
Goji berries don’t just come packed with myths of longer life, they also come with definite health benefits. They contain antioxidants that can help protect your eyes by fighting off UV rays, free radicals, and oxidative stress. As well they help support your immune system with their ability to fight off inflammation. Some other benefits Gojis provide are protection against cancer, healthier skin, improves depression anxiety, and sleep, stabilizes blood sugar, and can prevent liver damage. But when wouldn’t you want to eat Goji regularly? If you're on any blood pressure or diabetes drugs, talk to your doctor before consuming any. They can interfere with drugs which might cause them to work differently than expected.
When it comes to consuming the superfood, there are so many ways you can eat them. You can eat them raw, dried, use them while cooking, put them in your oatmeal or yogurt, make smoothies, pour some in your tea, etc. There are so many ways to eat them, but it’s up to you how you decide to eat these sweet berries.
