Fall in love with goji berries!

Chinese medicine practitioners commonly use goji berries to treat diabetes and high blood pressure, maintain eye health, and nourish the liver and kidneys.

They’re packed with vitamins C and E, along with carotenoids like beta-carotene and lycopene.

Some research suggests goji berries help increase metabolism and boost energy levels.

Try snacking on dry goji berries, or dropping a handful into trail mix, cereal, or salads or your smoothies.

Gojis can often be found in Asian food stores, but most of these come from the commercial growing regions of China and Tibet, and contain high levels of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Even some brands which claim to be organic may not be, so be sure to source your goji berries from a reputable source.

I usually buy this brand : Heaven Mountain, if you know any better, let me know!
