You probably heard a lot about getting in enough Vitamin C when you were growing up. And the thought of constantly eating oranges and carrots (because that was really all you even considered eating for vitamin C as a kid….if that) made you a little apprehensive. I am thankful now that I have grown up and expanded my palate to explore different foods and research new discoveries. In today’s It’s In the Bag series, we are talking about the Goji Berry.
Goji Berry is just one of the many powerful antioxidants included in Shakeology.
*Nutrients in foods that slow down the oxidation of our bodies.
*Protect our bodies from free radical damage.
*Help promote the body’s natural inflammatory response.
Free radicals are natural by-products that cells produce. The way free radicals damage your body is similar to how oxygen in the air rusts exposed metal on a car. If you don’t have enough antioxidants to absorb free radicals in your body, they overwhelm your cells, oxidizing and destroying them. Cellular damage is now known to lead to all chronic illnesses, including inflammation, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and even dementia.
Goji Berries, rich in vitamin A, this nutritionally dense little fruit has played a vital role in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It contains 19 amino acids (including the 8 that are essential for life), has more vitamin C than an orange, and is packed with immense amounts of beta-carotene—more than carrots.
In fact, look at these other possible benefits:
*protects the liver
*improve sexual function and fertility
*Strengthen the legs
*boost immune function
This little fruit can’t be mistaken for fluff. Definitely something you should have on hand. Another important ingredient included in Shakeology to give your body what it needs so that you can function at your best. Worth every penny.
