The Goji berry is not known as a superfood for nothing, and has become known as “the longevity fruit.” It does so much it is hard to list everything without writing an article instead of a blog post. There is one myth that exists concerning the berries, it is not a good source for vitamin C. David Wolfe author of the book “Superfoods” had various berries lab tested, and the level of vitamin C was nearly zero.
I have been trying to get more alkaline into my diet and the Goji berries mixed with the lemon juice is a great source. It also helps improve healthy hormones, enhance the libido, great source of antioxidants, improve vision, boost the immune system, hydration, supports cardiovascular health, great for the organs, supports brain, and neurological health. Not to mention they are a complete source of protein, contain 19 amino acids, along with 21 or more trace minerals.
- 1 cup of Goji berries
- 1 gallon of water
Once the allotted time has passed strain the berries from the water, you can then use them in a variety of ways.
Use the water as a base for smoothies, soup, juice, or tea. Add 1/3 cup of lemon juice to the water and use the water to add to herbal teas that are not pleasant tasting. I add it to any tea to enjoy the many benefits it offers, I mix half Goji water to half of whatever tea I am drinking.
