Today I want to talk about the amazing Goji Berry.

Goji berries are native of Southeast Europe and Asia and are part of the nightshade family of potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants etc. They have been cultivated in China for over 600 years and are called “Red Diamonds” by the locals. Most of the cultivation of the berries is still done in China.

They are rich in antioxidants, carotenoids, lutein, zearanthin, iron, zinc, selenium, essential fatty acids and fiber. They are also a good source of protein. For these reasons, they are considered a superfood in the raw community. They also help promote a healthy heart and optimal blood pressure.

So what is an antioxidant you ask? Well, its a molecule that inhibits oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. So antioxidants help prevent the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals damage and age our skin from the inside out. I want you to think here, antioxidants = fountain of youth! We are always slathering on anti-aging creams, but we need to be fighting free radicals from the inside as well.

That is why drinking Shakeology is crucial to your health. There is a war going on inside your body. Let’s fight it with the highest quality ingredients and feed ourselves on a cellular level.
