Goji Berries are a well known superfood! They are a wonderful immune-booster with very high levels of beta-carotene and zeaxanthin making them good for the eyes. They may help prevent heart disease and also contain compounds (including polysaccharides) that reduce fever, reduce inflammation, have anti-tumor and antimicrobial effects, and protect the liver and kidneys. Amazing right? They get better!
Because Goji Berries are a dried fruit that's lower in sugar, they are sometimes considered more of a nutrient-packed supplement rather than a treat. They are an ideal low-sugar fruit that are less than half the sugar of raisins! The sugars in raisins are mostly glucose and fructose (simple carbohydrates) whereas the sugar in Goji Berries is a polysaccharide (complex carbohydrate).
