FROM THE PARAPHARMACY: GOJI BERRIES

Goji berries contain a large amount of nutrients and anti-oxidants that would ensure health and great longevity. In England it is taken as a tea, but the juice or the dehydrated fruit are also popular.

But what do these berries contain?

The fruit contains numerous essential amino acids (up to 10% and more than its own weight), cryptoxanthin, cinnamic acid, beta-sitosterol, melissic acid, glutamic acid, zeaxanthin, betaine (up to 1% and more than dry weight), physalein, taurine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, two cerebrosides, numerous vitamins including beta-carotene (provitamin A), thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), nicotinic acid (vitamin B3), ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and small amounts of minerals. It is also presented an essential oil composed of two sesquiterpenes and polysaccharides with immunomodulatory activity, belonging to the proteoglycan class. The seeds contain steroidal compounds.

Goji berries contain more beta-caratons of carrots, more iron than spinach and more protein than cereals. The Goji berries contain as many as 21 traces of minerals, including germanium, considered a powerful mineral in the aid against tumors.
Goji berries contain 18 amino acids, Vitamin E and 500 times the amount of Vitamin C of that contained in oranges. Vitamins B1, B2 and B6 that facilitate the construction of new cells and the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Betacatotene is an important substance for our body, which converted into Vitamin A from our body helps in the fight against heart disease and also protects the health of the eyes and skin from damage caused by the sun.
Goji berries are a rich source of B vitamins, antioxidants that provide energy to the body, essential for the metabolism and essential to the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Goji berries are also rich in polysaccharides, complex carbohydrates that are the main source of energy in a balanced diet, also contain 18 different types of amino acids and are a major source of potassium and magnesium.

Promote the growth hormone production with Goji.

The level of human growth hormone decreases over the years. At the age of 70 a man produces only one-tenth of the hormones produced by a 20-year-old boy. This regression leads to a physical deterioration, with a lower level of energy, muscle atrophy and a tendency to store more body fat. Stimulating the natural production of growth hormone helps to feel physically and mentally younger.

In this regard, Goji berries help our body in two ways:

• Potassium: Goji berries are a very rich source of this mineral, vital for the health of our organs. An insufficient amount of potassium interferes with the normal function of the pituitary gland, which produces growth hormone
• Amino acids: some amino acids promote the production of growth hormones. Goji berries are a rich source of L-glutamine and L-arginine, two amino acids that work together to increase growth hormone levels and revitalize our outward appearance

All these benefits derive from the nutrients present in the berries. Which in particular contain:

■ 18 amino acids
■ 11 basic minerals and 22 trace elements
■ 6 essential vitamins
■ 8 polysaccharides and 6 monosaccharides (some of which are specific to this berry and are not present elsewhere)
■ 5 fatty acids, linoleic acid and linolenic acid
■ different phytosterols
■ beta-carotene, along with 4 other carotenoids

Goji berries are worth 28 on the GI scale of the glycemic index (apple 38, orange 42, melon 65 and watermelon 72). Here it is revealed - as indicated above - because the Goji berries give a sense of satiety. Precisely because foods that have a high gligemic index tend to quickly create a blood glucose peak that just as quickly falls and as a result of its descent again triggers the sensation of hunger.
An advice to avoid these glycemic changes during the time slots between meals is to eat some Goji berries for a feeling of satiety.
