Superfood Sunday Spotlight: Gogi berries

Gogi Berries:

What are they? Gogi berries are festive red berries that have a sweet, slightly-sour taste that usually come dried. Gogi berries are filled with antioxidants, Vitamin C + A, fiber, iron, and zinc. They include 8 essential amino acids! A 1/4 cup serving of goji berries contains 90 calories and 4 grams of protein (per serving).


Benefits:

  1. Weight loss aid- Perfect for a light snack to ensure you don’t overindulge- they boast just the right amount of sweetness!
  2. Stabilizes blood sugar
  3. Proven to increase energy, overall well-being, athletic performance, and ability to focus.
  4. Glowing skin- “Vitamin C is also used in the production of collagen, which makes skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels healthy.”
