Superfood: Goji berries

Goji berries (also known as lycii berries or wolfberries) are one of my favorite foods, also considered to be a superfood — foods that have health benefits that go beyond just their nutrient value, and are typically loaded with a combination of critical fatty acids, anti-oxidant phytonutrients, and essential amino acids.

Specifically, goji berries contain more vitamin C by weight than any other food on earth, all 18 amino acids, as well as mega doses of vitamin A (beta carotene), B1, B2, B6 and vitamin E. Goji berries are extremely rich in phytonutrient anti-oxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, contain more iron than spinach, as well as 21 other key trace minerals.
