Goji Berries!

Did you know that Goji berries have protein? Did you know that they have more iron than spinach? Goji berries contain 500% more vitamin C than an orange (per ounce) and more than double the anti-oxidants of blueberries! These berries could also very well be the best anti-aging food (they naturally stimulate HGH or human growth hormone). As if that weren't enough, these little berries contain 18 different Amino Acids, including the 8 that are essential and over 20 trace minerals and vitamins! No wonder Goji berries are a popular food in Chinese Medicine.
