Goji (Lycium barbarum) has been lauded as "one of the most nutritionally dense foods on Earth" because by weight these little berries contain 500 times more vitamin C than oranges, have more beta-carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach. They also contain, zeaxanthin, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, germanium, vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. Goji is also a powerful antioxidant. Goji juice also contains 19 amino acids including all nine of the essential amino acids (histidine, isoeucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine,threonine, tryptophan and valine).
However the most significant component of Goji may be its polysaccharide content. Recent research indicates that polysaccharides may have numerous benefits in the body including immune and inflammation regulation. Animal studies have show that these polysaccharides may protect the liver and kidneys from age-related oxidative stress. Another animal study has indicated that these same polysaccharides may be beneficial in improving insulin resistance caused by diabetes. More interesting yet is a 2006 study that suggested that the polysaccharides improved the antioxidant action of the antioxidants that naturally occur in goji and may prevent DNA damage associated with oxidative stress.Goji berry is very rich in vitamins and minerals and has a very high concentration of these. Consuming the Goji berry juice on a regular basis would definitely have long lasting health benefits.
Goji berry juice is a rich pure extract of the Goji berry fruit and thus, has many benefits.
