What Are the Benefits of Organic Goji Berries?

Strong Antioxidant Properties

Goji berries are a superior source of antioxidants. They far exceed the ORAC values of any common fruit. A 100g serving of goji berries contains 25,300 ORAC units compared to prunes (5,700 units), blueberries (2,400), strawberries (1,540) and raspberries (1,220).

Strengthens the Immune System

Goji berries are rich in disease-fighting polysaccharides. Numerous research studies suggest polysaccharides strengthen the body’s ability to fight diseases. The polysaccharides in goji berries have a chemical structure similar to substances found in echinacea and maitake mushrooms.

Goji berries are also a good source of Vitamin C and zinc, which are also very effective in combating diseases.

Suppresses Appetite and Over-Eating

Goji berries has a low glycemic index (29), which is below apples (38) and oranges (42).
