Goji’s Health Benefits Confirmed by Research
This little berry can improve your outlook.


For 2,500 years, the goji berry has been thought to have medicinal properties—most notably, improved vision and kidney and liver function. This nutrient-dense, chewy red little berry has gained popularity recently for its incredible health benefits. Goji berry juices, bars and supplements have become wildly popular among health and nutrition aficionados. Now, a clinical trial confirms the goji berry health connection.

After consuming 120 mL of goji berry juice—equivalent to 150 g of fresh gojis—daily for two weeks, 50% of the subjects experienced significant increases in athletic performance, sleep quality, mental focus and calmness. In addition, nearly 60% of those drinking goji juice reported feelings of good health, contentment, and happiness. (Amagase H, Nance D.

It is true to say that a calorie controlled diet is not necessarily a healthy one just as eating everything available isn’t either! You probably know someone who is quite happy to eat other people’s leftovers and always has seconds! There is no getting away from it most of us enjoy food that is sweet and high in sugar. Lots of people do this so you are not on your own but they don’t even consider for a moment how a health supplement will help them.

If that sounds like you I would warn against such behavior that can have such a detrimental effect on your long term health. Perhaps it’s time you started thinking about looking after yourself with some health supplements or goji juice. Before you say no, just think about the benefits these supplements can bring to your long term health and happiness. If you think like many other people that they don’t taste too good without even trying them, then you’d be wrong.

Goji juice is a great way to supplement your diet — and it tastes great too.

Perhaps it is better to try something before you decide you don’t like it. Besides, the ones I’m referring to are the very pleasant health supplements that are flavored with chocolate, vanilla and banana for instance. I have been taking some form of food supplement for years now including a good multivitamin that contains more essential vitamins than I can remember. I think every human being should consume a daily vitamin, it’s very simply to do and it only takes a split second because you can take one with your meal each day.

I also use another great health supplement called whey protein shakes and goji juice, but I only started drinking those only fairly recently. These drinks are absolute powerhouses of protein; it’s quite amazing really when you think about it. The best thing about it is you can drink it at almost anytime although I enjoy mine around lunchtime. The other great thing is it will add about 30 grams of protein to your muscles which should help with your new found health care regime.

The thing about new-age health supplements is that they’re really geared to give you all the good stuff and keep out the bad. So things like salt, sugar, cholesterol and saturated fat to name a few, which we already get too much of, aren’t in them. I would suggest you have a look on the internet to see what health supplements are on offer, try them for a while and just see how good you feel.
