A super food is defined as a nutrient-rich food that is considered to be especially beneficial for health ans well-being.
One of my favorite magic ingredients is Goji Berries. Goji berries are the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. It is the only fruit that is a complete protein and has one of the highest anti-oxident ratings. They contain 21 trace minerals and are exceptionally high in selenium and germanium which are powerful cancer fighting antioxidants.
Goji berries contain more beta-carotene than carrots. Your body converts beta-carotene into Vitamin A for healthy skin, eyes and a strong immune system. They also contain natural anti-inflammatory compounds that lower cholesterol.
Goji berries are native to the Himalayan Mountains and have been used in Tibet and Mongolia for thousands of years both as a culinary ingredients and for their medicinal properties.
I think it's time we get some of that Goji goodness into us!
