For monks in the Himalayan Mountains, the goji berry was traditionally used to assist with stamina and focus during meditation. Nowadays, science tells us there are six key benefits that come with eating the dynamic-tasting goji berry.

First of all, goji berries have high levels of antioxidants, which help to protect the cells from free radical damage.

Secondly, goji berries have been found to regulate the release of sugar into the blood sugar into the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar levels more stable as well as increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin resistance. This is especially helpful for those struggling with diabetes, pre-diabetes, and hypoglycemia.

Third, the goji berry is a natural energy booster. Rather than reaching for another cup of coffee, an energy drink, or a sugary snack, how about sipping on some organic goji berry juice?

Another benefit of the goji berry is that it cleanses the liver. The berry has often been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and for good reason. It nourishes the liver and kidney meridians, which are particular TCM pathways in the body where vital energy is said to flow.

Fifth, goji berries are high in a prominent antioxidant from the carotenoid family that can effectively prevent the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In layman’s terms, goji berries help your eyes stay healthy.

Lastly, the goji berry can increase men’s testosterone levels, which is why they’re often included in Chinese herbal sexual-enhancing remedies. So if you’re trying to enhance your lovemaking abilities, perhaps you should consider adding goji berries to your diet.
