Goji Berries are bright orange-red berries that comes from a shrub native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.

Goji Berries are loaded with Vitamin C and have more carotenoids than any other food! They also contain 18 amino acids, 21 minerals and glyconutrients for cell communication.

Carotenoids, are the colorful plant pigments that the body can turn into vitamin A, they are powerful antioxidants that can help prevent some forms of cancer and heart disease, and enhance your immune response to infections.

Goji berries have a natural tinge of sweetness and contain tiny seeds that offer fibre benefits to your diet. Add them into smoothies, top your oatmeal, or try some of these recipes from onegreenplanet.org. Goji berries are often used as an alternative to raisins or cranberries in recipes.
