Goji Berries

There's no question that one of the healthiest varieties of fruits to be consuming is the berry.  From blueberries to strawberries to blackberries to raspberries, the berry fruit has commonly been touted for the antioxidant potential that it contains.

Now however there's a newer berry that's becoming the focus for many, the goji berry.  This berry takes health benefits one step further and really has a lot to offer.

Let's take a look at the primary reasons why you should be including goji berries into your day.

Helps Protect The Eyes

The first big benefit that you'll experience from consuming goji berries regularly is that it's a rich source of the carotenoids beta-carotene and zeaxanthin, which play a key role in helping keep the retina healthy.

In addition to this, by consuming these carotenoids regularly in the diet you can also help to lower the risk of macular degeneration that develops with age, further helping to improve your overall eyesight and function.

Reduced Blood Glucose Levels

The second big reason to include goji berries into your day is because they have also been noted to help reduce the blood glucose levels you experience after eating a meal rich in carbohydrates.

This then means that you shouldn't have as much trouble with energy fluctuations throughout the day and they can also really help out with those who are suffering from diabetes.

Immune System Support

If you're someone who tends to get ill quite often during the winter months, goji berries can help to prevent this by boosting your immune system so you have a much better chance of fighting off the common cold.

Those who are often involved in intense exercise will also want to pay attention to this benefit as all that intense exercise can also weaken the immune system over time making it vital that you do whatever you can to strengthen it.

Decrease Cholesterol Levels

Finally, the last benefit that goji berries have to offer is that they can help to decrease your overall cholesterol levels when they are eating on a regular basis.  This is most predominant when you consume goji extract versus goji juice so that's something to make note of if this is a big concern for you.

So there you have some of the most important health benefits that the goji berry has to offer.  While you should never include this at the expense of other berries in your diet, it makes for a terrific addition to your current daily diet plan.
