Why is Wolfberry Called "the Ruby of Nutrition"?

 the specific effects and precautions of wolfberry soaked in water
Goji fruit is rich in powerful antioxidants and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. However, the fresh wolfberry fruit cannot bear the bitterness of transportation, so the wolfberry sold is dried, or in the form of juice and tea. They have a slightly sour taste similar to cranberries or cherries. In Western countries, it is recommended to drink 4 ounces of goji berry juice per day.

Lycium barbarum contains a lot of phytochemicals and antioxidants, such as carotene, plant betaine, plant sterols, etc., and is rich in iron. According to the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology in 2007, the powerful anti-aging effects of wolfberry can protect your nerve cells and retina. In addition, the listing of wolfberry as a superfood has a lot to do with its antioxidant effect on cancer.

Benefits of eating dried goji berries or drinking goji berry juice daily:

1. Prevent age-related macular degeneration

Goji berries contain high levels of carotenoids, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin, nutrients that are important for maintaining normal vision. Zeaxanthin can help protect the retina and reduce age-related macular degeneration.

2. Fight cancer

The phytochemicals contained in wolfberry have powerful anti-cancer effects. A 1994 study published in the journal "Chinese Oncology" showed that wolfberry has been found to have positive effects as adjuvant therapy for cancer. The betaine in it also helps reduce high homocysteine levels (a protein associated with a higher risk of heart disease and inflammation).

3. Helps lose weight

Our bodies need betaine to help produce choline and methionine. These two substances are important substances against the fatty liver. They remove fat from the liver and burn off excess calories. Goji berries are very rich in betaine.

4. Protect the heart

The β-sitosterol contained in wolfberry can block the absorption of cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract and help reduce cholesterol. In addition, a powerful antioxidant, superoxide dismutase (SOD), has also been found in wolfberry berries, which is an important fighter against free radicals against cells.

Lycium barbarum has been a well-respected health care product since ancient times, but we should not take it too much when we eat it.
