4. Eye Health

Zeaxanthin, a compound related to vitamin A that is well-known for protecting the retina of the eye, is found in high amounts in goji berries. In fact, these berries are the richest source of zeaxanthin on the planet. Goji berries can prevent macular degeneration, degeneration of the retina, and protect the body from free radicals, which destroy cells within the body and play an important role in many chronic diseases.

 

5. Encourages Muscle Growth

Goji berries have all 18 amino acids, including the 8 essential amino acids that the body cannot make itself. For meeting your daily protein requirements, you can’t beat goji berries!

 

6. Naturally Vitamin Rich

With more vitamin C than an orange, and more iron than a T-bone steak, more beta-carotene than a carrot, goji berries are a super source of vitamins packed into one tiny package! They are also a great way to get your B vitamins, such as thiamin, niacin, and riboflavin, along with a good dose of vitamin E. Read more about Vitamin B deficiency.
