Goji berries have A LOT of benefits due to their nutritional density, but in this video I mainly focus on the benefits to our eyesight, our kidney and liver function as well as our immune system. Goji berries do more than make your smoothie bowl look Instagrammable. As a low-caloric, fat-free, and high-fibre fruit, it’s the perfect accompaniment to mid-afternoon snacks and trail mixes for the road. The superfood also has the ability to fight free radicals, with carotenoids such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and lutein.

Superfood of the Week: Popcorn Forget goji berries, chia or even quinoa; today’s superfood is a true American classic. And we’re NOT talking about movie theater popcorn, which is usually dripping. have cited the high level of antioxidants in goji berries, especially zeaxanthin.

It’s the zeaxanthin that gives goji berries, saffron, and bell peppers their bright color. Antioxidants protect. Goji berries contain significant concentrations of the following micronutrients; As can be seen in the table, goji berries provide a substantial amount of vitamin A in the form of carotenoids.

The fruit also supplies a decent serving of copper, selenium, and vitamin C.

  • hi tom! you know, feel so lonely. i can’t forget your face, your smile and anything about you. please give me an advice to forget you

  • Goji berry leaves are have a similar vitamin and protein profile to the fruit. Best and cheapest way to get goji berries. Get a plant. They are hard to kill, will outcompete most weeds before being established, prolific growers and spreaders. You will spend more time keeping them from spreading than keeping them alive. In fact you will spend no time keeping the goji plant alive.

  • Hey Guys! I’m Orlyany and i post beauty, fashion and random videos similar to Toms! It would mean a lot to me if you subscribed to my channel because i’m trying to get to 300 subs, lmk so I can sub back:) thanks<33

  • Super Foods are a myth. Just look at the term, it has marketing written all over it!
    Sure, they are healthy, and great additions to our diet, but they aren’t magic Senzu beans.

  • THESE ARE USED AS MEDICINES! THEY CAN MAKE YOU VERY VERY SICK! Throw out the words “Super Fruits” as this is so much BULLSHIT with all these bull crap Chinese names! Listen! These are not health food products! These are what was/is used as medicines before there were more refined medicines with more predictable affects; these fruits have surprisingly strong possible negative effects on the body! The reason he’s spitting out all those Chinese names is because he doesn’t really know what he’s talking about so he’s resorting to words you do not understand to “romance you” into BUYING these products!
    Goji berries contain a substance know as ATROPINE and Goji’s contain it in significant amounts! If you take too much of these Goji products, and it doesn’t take much to cause problems, you could give yourself “ATROPINE POISONING”: The symptoms/signs of “atropine poisoning” are rapid & irregular heart rate, dry mouth/thirst, blurred vision & sensitivity to light, liable/unstable blood pressure (high or low blood pressure, depending on the length of time after you OD on this poison), chest pain, dehydration, dry/hot skin, restlessness, delirium, hallucinations, coma & death if high enough amounts are consumed and you don’t get medical attention or if someone like a child or unhealthy person with issues consumes it! They’re selling you these products and are not doing you any favors here! There is very little information on these “super berries” out there and the way I found out was thru personal experience and searching for information…was not easy to find! If you consume this with other “super foods/super fruit/super berries” or anything containing bromolin, theobromin, caffeine or any other stimulanst…the probability of you suffering ill effects increases (tea, coffee, cacao, chocolate),,.think heart attack! We use Atropine as a pre-operative medicine to dry up secretions prior to surgery so patients do not aspirate on their own secretions…very dehydrating, which in it’s self can cause a lot of problems! I do not recommend this stuff…AT ALL!

  • As I type this comment I am having allergic reactions to organic goji berries. I experience itchiness on my navel, on the palms of my hands and feet, swollen lower lip and coughing. I guess goji berry isn’t for everyone. I have taken antihistamines and it gets better.

  • This is so informative thank you! its such a health trend and theres so much more to it then its antioxidant content, thanks for going in depth about it.

  • That’s how you say it. The word ACAI actually has a “cedille” under it (like you would see in the word CURACAO you know the blue liquor??)?? so it “softens” the C sound from a “k” to a “ssss”, so she said it right!

  • I’ve fallen in love with goji berries..BUT, a warning-too many =lets just say, your intestines will be VERY cleaned out! I got a shipment of Chinese fruits from a friend in China. I’m not real big on the freeze dried lychee (texture is a slimy fiber-but I’m going to try some different things with them, maybe make a powder for smoothie). I went a bit crazy the first few days and paid dearly for several days. MODERATION! But everything my tutors hubby has told me is that ALL of these fruits have tons of benefits and the taste is unbelievably good compared to the agri-fruits I normally can get in my tiny northeast town. Most of them we can easily get freeze dried or dehydrated on Amazon. (Jujube, Goji, Hawthorne, Longan and Lychee). I also just received a black AND Green lychee tea with lychee honey today. (Yes, it’s lychee season in China). So far, I just had a cup of the green lychee tea with a bit of honey-very unique floral fruit taste I’ve never had before. I DO need to find an “equalizer” though, as far as my tummy. If you have any suggestions, I’m open to trying almost anything. My tutor is sending a TCM remedy, but she didn’t send it express this time, so it could take over a month to get here.

  • Thank you. I just brought a goji plant for my garden. My direction say it not edible. I hope they meant the plant not the berries.

  • A few weeks ago I received my first bag of goji berries. Either my body didn’t react well or I ate too many goji berries but I was up all night with pretty bad gastrointestinal disturbances, I threw up three times and had pretty bad diarrhea. I’m not sure if it’s because my stomach is not used to digesting dried fruit or if I’m allergic to goji berries.

  • Comment below: have you ever tried goji berries? If so, what do you think of them?

  • The wheatgrass video would be greatly appreciated, and your videos have been nildly useful in opening my perceptions (vegetable soup) and having well constructed outlines (pistol video). Please continue, and good luck with your family. ��

  • So tom, with the knowing what goes into your body, are you no longer eating stuff like caramel color, sodium benzoate, hydrogenated oil, butylated hydroxytolulene (BHT)? Because if you are, then congratulations because thats really good!

  • It’s so cool with chocolate! I never seen it before��
    Cuz in Taiwan we put this in some medicinal foods. it’s great for your eyes though��

  • I soak a handful of them in water with some dried blueberries, while i cook up some millet. I add ground flax seed, hemp seed, raw cocoa, molasses, and some maple syrup. Top with some fresh berries and chopped brazil nuts, and you got the best tasting breakfast porridge you ever did have.

  • Hey I was wondering if you would be able to make a video on a high caloric lunch that I would be able to take to school because I do cross country and track so I’m usually running about 8 miles a day and my current intake is about 2000 calories a day:/

  • Yes, awareness of general health benefits is important.
    However knowing the origin and quality of the products you are eating counts for something too, vegetables undergo nutrient and quality degradation when transported from overseas etc. Knowing how they were processed, handled, the time of the harvesting and if they are seasonal is so important.
    That is why I’m conflicted about hyped “superfoods” like the goji berrieimported from across the globe.

  • We I was a child I had pequi or souari nut ( fruit with little taste) in Brazil at the country side were I lived and I had them with sugar and rice.

  • I soak a handful of them in water with some dried blueberries, while i cook up some millet. I add ground flax seed, hemp seed, raw cocoa, molasses, and some maple syrup. Top with some fresh berries and chopped brazil nuts, and you got the best tasting breakfast porridge you ever did have.

  • have you heard of ningxia red from young living? it’s a really incredible source of goji berries from the Ningxia region in china! definitely worth looking into. ☺️

  • In Taiwan, most people use Goji as a traditional medicine ingredient.
    Some people will add it into Chicken soup,
    But I’ll recommend you guys can use it like tea,
    add several Goji into a cup of hot water, waiting till it’s not that hot and drink, it can keep you warm.
    In summer, you can also put some ice in that drink.
    Just few people eat them without any process.
    Maybe you guys can try it.
    It does taste not bad.

  • goji berries are not from china they are originated from tibet china has wolf berries that are not good for you and tibet has goji berries that are very good for you dont be fooled by all these products because although they say goji berries on the packages they are most likely wolf berries from china do your research people

  • goji berry and maca root are in a category called adaptogens….they literally help you where you need it and are very good for sex drive

  • I love goji berries. I add them to my hot oatmeal or yogurt or just snack on them like dried fruits. I also add them to my chicken soup, even add them to my tomato soup. They’re very versatile.

  • Stop talking about superfood for sale in Australia.
    Instead start talking about food labelling of food products being sold in Australia.
    Example!
    Made in Australia from at least 60% Australian ingredients.
    And!
    Packed in Australia from Australian and imported ingredients.
    Put a stop the deception over food labelling on products being sold in Australia.
    In some cases the only Australian ingredient is water!
    Australians consumers want to know now if food products offered for sale in Australia are wholly made in Australia or otherwise if such food products are made or packed in Australia in combination with imported ingredients then food labelling needs to made compulsory to disclose the sources of
    the countries of origin of the ingredients.
    Food labelling in Australia is just one of too many examples now of how yesterday’s and today’s politicians have been selling Australia down the drain for the past 30 years.

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THESE INFORMATIONS. REALLY I LIKE ALL YOUR VIDEOS.
    THANK YOU AGAIN AND PLEASE CONTINUE TO INFORME PEOPLE, YOU DO A VERY GOOD JOB! BEST REGARDS!

  • They also forgot to say that Goji berries also gives your car better gas mileage, cuts your home mortgage rate and makes your boss happy with your work. Amazing superfood!!!

  • Love Goji Berries. I buy mine Organic off of Amazon. The more you eat them, the more you tend to like them. I don’t think I’d want them with chocolate as much as I like dark choc.

  • I do a very small amount with a cup of water I noticed if a do a few less than a tea spoon it gives me side effects so yeah could selenium or maybe cause it’s dark shade but ok in micro amounts.

  • before you make a comment type in acai berry pronunciation on google and see how it is pronounce.. You just made yourself stupid. it is A-Sah-ee..just like she said it

  • As I type this comment I am having allergic reactions to organic goji berries. I experience itchiness on my navel, on the palms of my hands and feet, swollen lower lip and coughing. I guess goji berry isn’t for everyone. I have taken antihistamines and it gets better.

  • Super Foods are a myth. Just look at the term, it has marketing written all over it!
    Sure, they are healthy, and great additions to our diet, but they aren’t magic Senzu beans.

  • If you going to use goji pls start small and always with the recommendation from your doctor. If you have certain problems that will clash, they will know. First test one and see if you have a reaction. Then increase slowly daily to maximum of 15g daily. And its better if you order a plant and grow it urself. And you don’t want all the pollution from pesticides. And listen to ur body. Don’t be rigid and force daily. Just add and take out from your diet as your body needs. Dry the rest till ur need it. But don’t powder it. Just dry it and put in a freezer ziploc.

  • any further benefits from eating them fresh vs dried? i just purchased a small goji berry shrub ill be planting in my garden tomorrow:-D
